Frequently Asked Questions About Waxing and Hair Removal How does waxing compare to laser and electrolysis? Waxing refers to hair removal with the use of hard or soft wax (sometimes also called cold or hot wax). The wax is applied to the area, and either allowed to harden then hair and wax are removed, or a fabric strip is applied, and the hair and wax removed. Laser is a direct beam of radiation that penetrates the epidermis and creates a reaction that damages the hair follicles. Note: laser cannot be used on skins that may have trouble with hyperpigmentation or keloids (raised scars), and while laser hair removal will permanently reduce the number of body hairs, it will not result in the permanent removal of all hair. Electrolysis is the process of removing hair permanently by means of electrified needles. It is the only hair removal method that is considered permanent. What determines the price? The amount of hair removed and areas covered. More area, more hair removed. How much does it hurt? Some have described the amount of pain as equivalent to that of a “Band-Aid” being quickly removed, while others have compared it to having the hairs plucked from the very depths of their souls. If you are concerned about the amount of pain involved, please take these points into consideration: skin is sensitized by hormonal fluctuations, and by intake of certain “drugs” like alcohol and caffeine. Waxing will feel INFINITELY more painful immediately before, during, and for about three days after your period. Waxing is also more painful after a triple espresso, and just as painful after three martinis. Please DO NOT take aspirin before your waxing service. Aspirin thins the blood, and may prevent coagulation. Antihistamines can be taken prior to a waxing service, and will effectively reduce the pain. How often should I get waxed? The hair must be no shorter than 1/4 of an inch in length. Hair, skin and nails grow faster in warm weather, so you may need to be waxed every 4 to 5 weeks in the summer, depending on your preferences. Hair grows much more slowly in the cooler months, so you may need waxing services every 6 weeks, again, depending on your preferences. Does the hair grow back? Yes, though more sparsely over time with continued, regular waxing. The care and feeding of your just-waxed areas 1. Just for today (the day you are waxed), please DO NOT tan. NO TANNING MEANS NO (NONE. ZIP. ZERO. ZALLY. NOTHING.) SUN EXPOSURE, TANNING BED USE, OR SUNLESS TANNING APPLICATION in the area you are waxed. The reason behind this is simple: your skin, in the area you are waxed, is exfoliated unevenly (much more deeply in the area of waxing), and will tan differently in the surrounding areas. Hyperpigmentation (uneven skin darkening) is just not pretty, and can take YEARS (yes, years) to get rid of. Just don’t tan. Just for today. Please. 2. Just for today (the day you are waxed), please do not subject the waxed area to: a. extremely warm water: this tends to irritate the waxed area b. excessive touching: delivers bacteria to the affected area, infection can occur c. tight clothing: this tends to irritate the newly waxed area 3. Prevent ingrown hairs by exfoliating. Three days after body waxing, begin gentle exfoliation with a washcloth. After seven days, exfoliation with a loofah should be gently done in the waxed area(s), and continued, at least twice a week thereafter. Always remember to moisturize afterward, as the area will look and feel much better if you do. If you get an ingrown hair, DO NOT PICK AT IT!! Use a warm compress for 10 minutes, then gently massage the area around the bump. Ingrown hairs have a tendency toward scarring and hyperpigmentation if overly manipulated.
