From bushy brows to hairy toes and everything in-between, waxing is one of the most popular beauty services. I offer full body waxing at my home between Woking and West Byfleet in Surrey. Your privacy and confidentiality is assured at all times. If you have unwanted hair on parts of your body, whether that’s your back, legs, arms, shoulders, chest, bottom or somewhere more intimate, waxing is the ideal solution. Your skin will be prepared and cleaned before warm wax is applied. This then quickly hardens before being removed with a brisk tug removing the hair.
WARM WAXING or STRIP WAXING - Normally used for legs, arms, bikini-line back and chest waxes. Warm waxing is the most popular method as it removes hairs quickly and efficiently. It can be used on larger areas and is suitable for most hair types. The warm wax is applied to the skin in a very thin layer using a spatula. A fabric or paper strip is then pressed on the waxed area and removed quickly causing minimum discomfort.
HOT WAXING or HARD WAXING - Normally used for Brazilian and Hollywood waxes. Hot waxing has been around for many years and is particularly good for more sensitive areas or for clients with more sensitive skin. It contains natural beeswax and melts to a thicker consistency than warm wax. The wax is applied to the skin with a spatula. As the wax cools it becomes firmer contracting around the hair. It is then pulled off the skin with a fast movement and the hair removed from the root. Hot waxing is a slower process than warm waxing and is much better for strong coarse hair and shorter hairs.
BENEFITS - Waxing can improve muscle definition and leave your skin smooth and sexy. Any waxing should be repeated in 4 to 6 weeks’ time. This can help to make the hairs grow back weaker. The amount of hair which is removed during waxing treatments will decrease with continuous waxing as the hair growth becomes sparser.
After regular waxing for a long period of time, sometimes the hairs do not grow back at all. There will be no itchy re-growth of your hairs because waxing removes the root from the hair follicle, slowing down the re-growth. That means your smooth skin will last much longer. There will be no hard stubble just a slower re-growth of finer, softer hair.
Swimmers and athletes may choose body waxing for aesthetic appeal and to improve their performance, or men who prefer to shave their heads may opt for waxing as a longer-lasting technique.
