Waxing is a form of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root
New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for four to six weeks, although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week due to some of their being on a different growth cycle. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, pubic areas (called bikini waxing), legs, arms, back, abdomen and feet.
The two types of waxing we use at our Larne Salon are:
Strip Waxing (Soft Wax)
Our Strip Waxing Treatments are accomplished by spreading a wax thinly over the skin. A paper strip is applied and pressed firmly, adhering the strip to the wax and the wax to the skin. The strip is then quickly ripped against the direction of the hair growth.
Our Hot Wax Waxing Treatments are applied somewhat thickly. The wax then hardens when it cools, thus allowing the easy removal by the therapist without the aids of paper strips. This waxing method is very beneficial to people who have sensitive skin.
Hot wax does adhere to the skin as much as strip wax does, thus making it a good option for sensitive skin as finer hairs are more easily removed because the hard wax encapsulates the hair as it hardens. The hot waxing method can also be less painful.
