The practice of body hair removal is not a new one, especially among women. Some of the common hair removal methods include plucking, shaving, waxing, hair removal creams, and laser hair removal among others. In waxing, you have to trim the hair to at least ¼ to ½ inches and then apply the talcum powder. This powder will block the wax so that it does not stick to the skin. The next step is to spread the warm melted wax to the hair removal area. Thereafter, the expert will press strips of cloth on the wax so that the hair and cloth can stick on the wax. The wax will then harden within a few minutes and you will swiftly pull the cloth strips so as to remove the hair. The direction of pulling should be the direct opposite of hair growth. The process will remove all the hair follicles together with the roots.
The aesthetician can easily tweeze any remaining hairs. The treated area can remain without hair for between three to six weeks. One thing you need to understand is that you should not wax the hair again before it regrows to ¼ to ½ inch length. Most users will tell you that the hair that grows back is finer and thinner each time. Waxing comes with some pain but you can minimize this pain or discomfort by taking painkillers 30 minutes before going for the waxing. Ingrown hairs or red bumps may also crop up. You can minimize these effects by using exfoliation, or hydrocortisone or acid based solution treatment. Here are some of the common types of wax Denver treatments you can get.
- Eyebrow Waxing
Some individuals refer to this practice as eyebrow shaping. It’s less painful than bikini area waxing. Most women begin with eyebrow waxing before they go for the other types of treatments. You can choose any day spa to sculpt your eyebrows. Waxing is more efficient in eyebrow removal than other forms of hair removal techniques.
- Leg Waxing
Leg waxing is a perfect substitute for shaving. You can buy a leg wax kit and use it from the home. However, you can visit a waxing salon or day spa to get professional leg waxing services. You can go for full or half leg wax depending on whether you will be wearing a dress, bikini, or short biking or if you have smooth legs.
- Bikini Waxing
This treatment will make sure that there is no hair around your bikini coverage area. It’s good to request the aesthetician to use small pieces of clothes during the initial treatments because the skin around the bikini region is highly sensitive. The American bikini waxing leaves a triangle in the waxing area. The playboy wax will leave a ‘landing strip’ on your bikini area while the full Brazilian wax removes the entire pubic hair from the back to front.
- Brazilian Waxing
The treatment removes all the unwanted body hair above and around the vagina and butt crack. The trend became popular as more women begun to wear thong bikinis that are popular in Brazil. They did not want to display any body hair in the back or front. The style originated from a group of seven Brazilian sisters in the 1980’s. the other common waxing treatments include underarm, chin, lip, arms, back, and even toes.
