Hair covering your body grows in various cycles. Some may be coarse and dark while others are so fine that it is impossible to see them visibly. There are a lot of ways when it comes to hair removal and full body waxing is one option you can consider.
What is Waxing?
Waxing is a type of semi-permanent hair removal method that eliminates unwanted hair straight from the root. It can take 2 to 8 weeks before new hairs grow back on the waxed area depending on your hair cycles and growth.
You can wax almost all areas of your body and there are different forms of waxing being used these days. Some of these should only be performed by estheticians or cosmetologists. It is possible to achieve permanent hair reduction if waxing is performed on a regular basis for a few years.
The Most Common Types of Waxing You Can Try Include:
- Bikini waxing
- Butt & Inner waxing
- Eyebrow waxing
- French/Brazilian/Hollywood waxing
- Male genital waxing
- Arm or underarm waxing
- Leg waxing
- Foot waxing
- Back waxing
- Abdomen waxing
- Chest waxing
- Full body waxing
The Waxing Process
Waxing is done by spreading a thin layer of wax combination on the skin. A paper strip or cloth will be pressed on top then ripped off with quick movement against the hair growth’s direction. It will then remove the wax together with the hair.
One more method uses hard wax instead of strip wax. Here, the wax is somewhat thickly applied with no paper strips or cloth. The wax will harden once it cools to allow easy removal by the technician with no need to use cloths. The waxing method can benefit people with sensitive skin.
The parts of your body that you should never wax at all include the eyelashes, nose, ears, palms of the hands, eyelids, and feet soles. These body parts are of high concern because of the sensitive skin that could suffer from severe damage if waxed. The body parts that shouldn’t be waxed by a licensed professional include the nipples and the genitals. Waxing the lip area, eyebrows, and bikini zone are popular among women.
Benefits of Waxing
Waxing offers a lot of benefits compared to other hair removal methods. This is an effective way to get rid of large hair quantities at one time. Waxing is also long lasting as it takes around 2 to 8 weeks before hair in the waxed areas grow back. If you remove or shave hair using a depilatory cream, you only remove the hair at the surface instead of the root. The hair will appear on the surface again in just a matter of days. With this method, the hair often grows back in rough stubble. Areas waxed on a regularly basis for a long period of time often have softer regrowth, making waxing a much better option.
Full body waxing can do wonders especially when you let the experts perform the job.
