Waxing Hair Removal Pros and Cons

Regardless of age or sex, unwanted body hair will always be a classic grooming problem that has simple solutions. To say good bye to your hairy legs and say hello to flawless and bikini-ready body, all you need to do is start a regular waxing regimen. Though this hair removal tip will not get rid of unwanted hair permanently, it achieves the best effect among other hair removal methods.

Waxing hair removal is a one-time hair removal method that uses warm wax that is spread over the problem area. As the wax cools down, it becomes embedded to the hair follicle, achieving firm grasp of your unwanted hair. The hot wax cools down easily so pre-made cloth strips are immediately applied over the soft wax. The cloth will be peeled once the wax becomes solid enough to pull the hair out of the follicles at directions opposite from the hair growth. In some waxing kits, the pre-made cloth strips are already applied with cold wax but may require a little friction to heat up and soften the wax and make it adhere to the hair.

One thing about regular body waxing is that it delivers long-term benefits. Though your hair is bound to grow back in two weeks, unlike shaving, your hair grows finer and lighter. This is because waxing effectively weakens the root of the hair so when it grows back, it does not grow thicker or cause ingrown hair growth.

Cost of hot wax hair removal

Compared to the cost of getting laser treatment for hair removal, waxing hair removal is way cheaper and safer. You can easily do it using home kits that cost around $25 to $100. The cost of professional waxing service varies depending on the area being tackled. For instance, facial waxing is cheaper than body waxing. The lesser the area being covered, the cheaper the waxing cost. Facial hair work as in eyebrow, upper lip and chin ranges from $5 to $50. Body hair work as in underarms, shoulders, full arm, back, bikini, half leg or full leg and chest goes from $15 to $100. The price varies depending on the type of salon or spa that offers waxing services. Just prepare to pay for a 15 to 20% gratuity on your bill, which is either customary or suggested in some facilities.

Some of the cons of waxing hair removal

While waxing is effective, it is not as easy as it looks. You can’t wax until your hair grew back to a certain length, usually ¼-inch, to make sure that the wax will adhere to the hair. For first timers, waxing is sure painful. It takes getting used to as you do regular sessions. Most people said that recovery is faster and bearable with waxing. And with waxing, its hairless results can gradually turn into permanent as it slowly degrades the hair follicles and your body’s ability to grow hair.

There are certain reminders when it comes to waxing. For instance, waxing is not recommended to people who currently take Accutane, use Retin-A, have lupus or AIDS, recently got Botox or collagen injections, undergoing cancer therapy, and people who have spent sunning or lying on the tanning bed within 24 hours of waxing session or you end up harming your skin. It is also not safe to wax on irritated, core, burned and pimpled areas. When women enjoy Brazilian and other forms of bikini waxing, male genitals are not safe to wax. Just make sure that you do the procedure correctly or choose the right facility to give you waxing treatment to enjoy flawless hairless results.
