Benefits of Waxing

Legs-being-waxed

With waxing, there are many benefits but most see it as very cost-effective, long-lasting, convenient and it’s a quick way to remove unwanted hair. A wax hair removal treatment removes hair directly from the roots and the hair generally does not grow back for three to six weeks and can be used on virtually any part of the body. Commonly, it is used to remove hair on legs, underarms, bikini lines, and arms, while also removing hair from the facial areas such as; upper lip and lower lips, eyebrows, and chin. Some areas, however, should never be waxed which are eyelashes, inside of your nose and ears. Some tips to consider and other benefits that most experiences include:

Plan Ahead For That Special Event

With a wedding coming up, a planned getaway vacation, or any special day, it is very important to plan your wax in advance. When visiting a tanning salon, it is recommended to start tanning a few weeks ahead of an event because you can’t get a real base tan after just one session. This is the same with waxing, your body has to become accustomed to the wax and the removal of hair, which usually takes a person around three months. If you schedule your first waxing session before your special event, your skin might be red or irritated which defeats the whole purpose of trying to look your best.

Smooth Skin That Lasts

Waxing removes hair from the root, which means it will take a longer time for the hair to regrow and won’t for anywhere from three to eight weeks. This means hair-free, smooth skin that lasts much longer and you can show off your glowing skin for an upcoming holiday or vacation.

No Skin Damage

In comparison to other methods of hair removal, for example, hair-removing creams and shaving, waxing does not cause cuts, badly smelling skin, or pigmentation. Waxing allows this to not occur because of the harsh chemicals that are not present within the wax, which saves the skin from damage.

More Soft and Thin Body Hair

Generally, after waxing the hair that grows back is rough and had, but with waxing the hair is usually more thin and soft. One of the best things is waxing does not cause the irritating stubble that shaving usually does after one day.

Exfoliation While Removing Hair

Because waxing removes the top layer of dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, after the wax is completed the skin is soft and rejuvenated. Since waxing removes the top layer of dead skin it can also serve as an exfoliation treatment.

Waxing Prolongs Hair Growth

Once many sessions of waxing are done, there will be a noticeable prolonged time period of not hair when generally there would be. In comparison with shaving, hair growth is stimulated rather than prolonged because it removes the surface hair rather than the root.

Hair Removal FAQs

Jar-of-NuFree-on-counter

NuFree isn’t a wax, sugar, thread, laser, or tweezer! It’s a soy-based hair removal system that is safe, effective, less painful (which means less redness), and antibacterial! What else could you want from a hair removal experience? Here are the most frequently asked questions about NuFree!

1) If Nufree isn’t a wax, what is it?
Nufree is a natural, self-preserving antibacterial/antimicrobial, anhydrous botanical formula. It contains no wax, no sugar, and no honey.

2) How long has Nufree been in existence?
Nufree has been used in thousands of salons for over 30 years.

3) How safe is Nufree?
Nufree was originally formulated for plastic surgeons who required hair removal for their patients prior to surgery. Nufree was scientifically tested for over 10 years.

4) Why is there no pain with Nufree?
Nufree never dries and doesn’t stick to the skin, so it doesn’t pull or cause painful irritation.

5) How long does a treatment take?
The average session is between 5-10 minutes. For example, eyebrows, sideburns, upper lips, or one arm can be treated in 5 minutes. A full pair of arms, tummy, bikini line, or underarms can be treated in just 10 minutes. A pair of legs only takes 20 minutes.

6) How much does it cost?
That will vary slightly by the salon, but chances are it will cost you less than you are spending on disposable razors.

7) Why do I need Finipil after my treatments?
Finipil helps shrink the empty follicle, keeps it clean, and retards hair re-growth.

8) How long do the results last?
Results can be seen immediately. After your first two treatments, regrowth is lighter and softer. If Finipil is applied, you will initially return in four to six weeks. With each additional treatment where Finipil has been applied, you will experience one-third less growth each time, and visits will not be required for six to ten weeks. Eventually, you only need to return for treatments once to twice a year.

9) Why can’t I do it myself?
Deep hair removal is not a home treatment. Amazing long-term results are achieved because the process is performed by a trained professional. Finipil helps perpetuate the results achieved through your Nufree treatment.

10) Does it matter what applicators are used?
All salons MUST use sanitary disposable applicators or medical grade stainless applicators that can be cleaned.

Waxing For Men

Sometimes, you need to find a way for effective chest and back hair removal and many people choose to wax to accomplish this task. When people hear of waxing they often think of women using this method, but it is becoming more common for men. Men have discovered the effectiveness of this process for unwanted hair to be removed as well.

The most common areas for men to get waxed are the chest and back. Some men think back hair is unattractive, while some are concerned about their chest hair, such as bodybuilders. Bodybuilders need to be able to show their muscles without all of the chest hair, or hair growing up over their muscly shoulders! Other men get waxed simply because their partner doesn’t like their chest or back hair.

Waxing As A Solution To Chest and Back Hair Removal

Most men see waxing as a discreet form of hair removal for their unwanted body hair. It is an easy process that lasts for a few weeks. Although it is not a permanent solution, your hair will not grow for a couple of weeks, a little longer for others after being waxed. The wax is spread over the hair and wax cloth strips are often used to remove the wax. Sometimes the wax is lifted gently with a spatula and then removed, taking the offending hair with it.

Does it hurt?

Some say yes, some say no. I don’t think it does as it is so quick and is like having a sticking plaster removed as a child. Some are afraid to get waxed because of the played-up pain that is involved. Sure it sounds slightly painful, but there are the advantages of being hair-free after it.

You must remember that the back, even though a large area is not as sensitive as some of the other areas of the body, so hopefully, it won’t hurt too much. (That’s easy for me to say, as I don’t wax there!)

Another plus when you are getting waxed is hair removal becomes easier over time as the hair follicles become weaker and so eventually getting waxed won’t hurt at all. The first appointment or home waxing may be uncomfortable but it lessens in future waxings. Now the chest will be a little more sensitive than the back, but each time it will become less painful because of the weakening of the hair follicles.

You can visit a beauty salon or hair salon for chest and back hair removal, or you can simply do it in the comfort of your own home. If you are waxing your chest and back it is recommended that you have an extra pair of hands helping you for those hard-to-reach places.

The process of waxing is continued until all of the hair in the desired area is removed. After you have been through the hair removal process, you can apply an after waxing moisturizer or lotion to reduce the irritation that may occur due to the waxing.

Chest and back hair removal is easy with waxing and really does have very little pain involved.

It is best to wait until the hair is long enough to be removed, as having the new growth appear won’t be as effective. The wax needs to be able to “grab” onto something, so ideally, the hair length needs to be at least a quarter of an inch long.

If you’re seeking an effective, inexpensive, and long-lasting chest and back hair removal option, you might want to consider waxing.
