For millennium women have used various methods to remove unwanted body hair from their arms, underarms, legs, face, and private parts. In the mid-1900s, when women’s bathing suits started exposing more skin, both American and European women accelerated the movement to remove body hair. The methods used for hair removal include shaving, plucking, OTC hair-removal creams, laser hair removal, and waxing in Mesa CA.
One of the most effective and widely
used methods is waxing and, while not permanent, it will last four to
six weeks before regrowth is visible. Hair can be removed through
waxing from nearly every skin surface including face, eyebrows,
bikini area, legs, arms, and underarms.
Depending on the area where the hair
is to be removed, the site might need to be prepared by trimming the
hair to a length of less than one-inch and applying talcum or baby
powder. There must be enough hair for the wax to attach to and the
powder prevents the skin from sticking to the wax.
The types of waxing typically
practiced at salons like Beautiful You by Christine include the
Waxing – Sometimes called soft waxing, this method is performed by
smoothing a thin coating of wax on the hair to be removed. A strip of
paper or cloth is firmly pressed against the skin after which the
strip is abruptly pulled off in the opposite direction of the hair
growth but parallel to the skin to reduce the occurrence of bruising
and ingrown hairs.
Waxing – This form Waxing in Mesa CA is also called hard waxing and
does not use paper or cloth strips. The wax is applied in a thick
coat and, as it cools, it hardens, allowing easy removal without
paper or cloth strips. Because the wax doesn’t stick to the skin as
much as strip wax, it is the best choice for those with sensitive
skin. This method is typically less painful because the wax
completely traps the hair when it hardens.
Hair removal through waxing on the private and sensitive body areas is best performed by a licensed professional known as an esthetician. The bikini area is one area that is extremely sensitive, and the skilled esthetician will use several small strips of cloth or paper, which is less painful than using larger sections. Licensed estheticians are very discreet and do everything they can to make the experience as comfortable as possible. For more information contact Lovely Salon & Cosmetic Center.
