FREQUANTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

WHAT IS WAXING?

Waxing removes the entire hair follicle from its root with an effect lasting up to six weeks. The hairs will return but softer and less abundant. The wax (a kind of resin) will only stick to the hairs that need to be removed, not to your skin.

 

WHY IS WAXING MORE EFFICIENT THAN OTHER DEPILATORY TREATMENTS?

If you shave or use a depilatory cream the hair roots remain. As a result, the hair will start growing back soon again, and with a hardened edge: a stubble. Waxing, however, removes the complete hair including its root. So, it takes longer to grow a new hair in the follicle. On top of that, the wax will exfoliate dead skin cells, as a peeling. This leaves your skin extra soft.

Permanent hair removal (such as IPL or Laser techniques) takes many successive treatments and over the years hairs may come back anyway. And, some hair or skin types are not suitable for IPL or Laser treatments.

 

IS WAXING PAINFUL?

CAN I WAX DURING MY PERIOD?
