Waxing is an excellent method for removing unwanted hair from most body areas quickly, affordably, and safely for attractive skin. Here in west Perth in our beauty studio at Shona Threading & Waxing, we have a friendly team that provides waxing services for the full face for your facial hair, body, and intimate waxing which is done by waxing specialists. It's one of our popular services in Western Australia.
Waxing has been around since ancient times and was used in Ancient Egypt as a form of hygiene & body wellness among royalty; however, this practice transformed into removing unwanted facial or body hair throughout history until finally becoming a common beauty service today due to its effectiveness at providing semi-permanent results by pulling out hair from roots below skin level with natural ingredients like beeswax, sugarcane extractions and coconut oil so new ones can't grow back within weeks. However, some people will start to see regrowth in only a week due to different human hair growth cycles. In Perth Western Australia, this body treatment is a beauty scene & beauty sense.
In the beauty industry of west Australia salon, Waxing is a better hair removal method than shaving, which is the more popular alternative. While you'll be reaching for the razor again in a day or two, waxing can keep you hair-free for up to six weeks.
Different types of waxing
Strip waxing (soft wax) involves smearing just a thin layer of wax over the skin. A specially designed nonwoven paper strip is applied and pressed firmly, adhering the strip to the wax and the wax to the skin. The strip is then quickly ripped against the direction of hair growth, as parallel as possible to the skin, to avoid trauma to the skin and thus provide painless treatment as much as possible. Facial waxing is generally done with strip wax.
Hot wax is so effective because it is just that – hot. The heat encourages your pores and hair follicles to open up, making it easier to remove the hair. Because the hot wax can cling to the hair as it dries on the skin, it is super effective at stripping out that hair without irritating your skin. Intimate Waxing including bikini line tidy up which is generally done with hot wax. There are different bikini wax styles. Bikini waxing is done by our beauty therapists and you need a Brazilian waxing session for it.
Regrowth Is Less
The best-known benefit of waxing is that the hair doesn't grow back very quickly, and unwanted growth of hair becomes less. Waxing removes the hairs from their root, so it's much more effective than shaving, which only cuts off all of the top layers at skin level - leaving behind hidden roots ready to re-grow in just days or hours! This means no post-shower stubble, missed areas, or fast regrowth because your beauty professional has removed every single strand; who knows what they're doing when it comes down to removing those pesky little hairs from your body, which makes your body attractive, as to look attractive you need to go the extra mile by having leg & bikini wax services. Bikini waxing is done by Brazilian specialists.
It's not just about the amount of regrowth; it's also about the type of regrowth you'll experience in 2-3 weeks growth on your ambiance skin after the 1st appointment.
With shaving, as we said, you cut off the hair. This results in a blunt cut. Especially in bikini & underarm, it causes itching. Hairs aren't naturally sharp! It's why hair regrowth after shaving feels stubbly.
With waxing, the hair is removed from the follicle in 1st session. When the hair regenerates and grows back, then in 2nd session it does so with a finely tapered end. This end is more refined and not stubbly, meaning that even while waiting for your next wax, your skin won't feel as hairy as it would post-shaving.
Over time, individual hairs may stop growing back altogether, and you end up with a sparser coverage of hair.
Exfoliate Your Skin.
When you have dead skin cells and dirt on your skin, you might experience skin breakouts, skin irritation blemishes, and dryness. It's for this reason that we exfoliate.
Waxing also easy to remove all this build-up in your pores. After just one treatment, you are left with a beautiful, smooth and radiant complexion!
While this isn't an exfoliation method, we recommend that you exfoliate a few days before waxing for the best results. Please wait at least 48 hours before and after your waxing appointment for body exfoliation, as exfoliating will make your carine skin more sensitive.
Eliminate Shaving Rashes
Shaving rash is a common irritant for those who shave. With shaving every few days, you're exposing your skin to friction which only makes the inflammation worse and leaves it prone to razor burn too! Waxing may be the better option as wax removes hair from its root so that any skin irritation can heal in just over a month before being exposed again.
Fewer Ingrown Hairs
For many people, shaving can be a disaster when there are ingrown hairs. Ingrown hairs cause pain, can lead to ugly bumps, and, if infected, will leave scars!
In the case of ingrown hairs, tell your beautician so that they know how to remove wax strips from the skin at an angle while being held tight, preventing hair from getting trapped underneath and reducing the risk of infection.
No More Itching
For many people, after they shave, there is immediate itching, followed by more itching as regrowth begins. Waxing can solve these problems because any irritating products that come into contact with your skin during treatment for hair removal on sensitive areas of your body, like the legs and underarms, are eliminated.
No More Shaving Cuts
Your razor is slippery, your hands are wet, and you're unsure what else to do. One slip of the hand can result in a nick or cut that leaves behind an ugly red mark on your skin for weeks after. A professional waxing treatment will remove all these troubles from the equation by removing hair from every pore with no chance of any wound. As such kinds of wounds are very harmful to sensitive skin in the intimate area, our beauty experts use Brazilian Waxing for a bikini wax. When you will use Brazilian 1st time, you might feel discomfort which gets better with each session.
Shaving is one of the most dreaded beauty chores. On the other hand, waxing at your favourite salon or spa can provide you with an essential beauty with a chance to take a few minutes out of your busy day and pamper yourself! It's like beauty bliss. Even though there may still be some discomfort when the strips are removed, hot wax from a professional will soothe the sting. Actually, 1st time it may hurt more, but then you will get used to it.
Waxing Before Care
It is just as essential to care for and prepare the area before waxing as it is to care for it afterwards. Follow these guidelines to ensure a quick and painless appointment.
1. As soon as your time to wax arrives, Before your waxing appointment, trim your hair. Waxing longer hair can be more painful.
2. Make sure your hair is at least 0.5cm long so that your beauty therapist can remove it without using a couple of waxes. Hair growth of about 1.5cm is recommended for first-time waxers.
3. 24 to 48 hours before your appointment, exfoliate the waxing area. This will keep your skin soft and smooth while also preventing ingrown hairs.
4. Bathe or shower on the day of your appointment to free up follicles and make hair removal easier.
5. Deodorants, make-up, lotions, soaps, powders, perfumes, or spray tan should not be applied to the waxed area.
6. If you've never had a wax before or find the process painful, take 1-2 paracetamol about 30 minutes before your appointment.
Expect the area to be red after your waxing service; some people may experience blood spots due to thicker, coarser hair, and the area may feel tender and tingly.
To avoid irritating the skin, avoid the following for the first 24 hours after a waxing service:
1. Scratching or touching the waxed area.
2. Exfoliating the waxed area.
3. We recommend that you take a cold shower. Make sure the water runs off the waxed area and that you do not wash or scrub it.
4. Sweat and friction on the waxed area.
5. Saunas and steam rooms.
6. Swimming, gyms, and exercising in general.
7. Sunbathing, sunbeds, or any other form of sunlight and UV exposure. Sweat and heat can both infect open follicles and irritate the waxed area. Remember to schedule your wax two days before your vacation to give the follicles time to close and the skin to calm down.
8. Applying deodorants, make-up, lotions, soaps, powders, perfumes, self-tanning products, and other products to the waxed area.
9. Tight-fitting clothing that may irritate the waxed area.
We recommend applying Aloe Vera gel regularly to soothe and calm the skin. This will rehydrate your skin, avoid getting your body dry and soothe any distorts you may have. Tea tree oil, which has anti-bacterial properties, can also be applied to the area to keep it bacteria-free.
Remember to keep the area clean and dry for at least 48 hours after your appointment, you can add additional time to it.
You must prevent any ingrown hair 3-10 days after your waxing service. The skin will close over the follicles, allowing new hair to become trapped and cause ingrown hairs.
Use a body scrub to exfoliate 2-3 times per week gently. Begin this routine 2 - 3 days after the waxing procedure. This routine must be followed between days 3 and 10 following your wax service. Remember not to over-exfoliate, as this can cause skin damage.
After exfoliating, apply an enriching and nourishing moisturiser. This procedure will prevent ingrown hairs and make your next Waxing easier and less painful.
