The Benefits of Waxing Vs. Shaving
Unwanted hair can be a difficult issue for both men and women. For some, it’s simply an irritation that has to be dealt with. For others, it can be a real struggle on a daily basis. It doesn’t have to be that way though. Estheticians are here to help you remove that unsightly hair with waxes of the highest quality, designed to keep irritation to a minimum while keeping you impeccably smooth!
Whether you are interested in brow waxing, bikini waxing, or body waxing, the question is always the same. Why should I wax versus regular shaving? While shaving may seem like the less expensive option, it isn’t the most effective. Shaving can cause skin irritation, and the hair will grow back coarse and stubbly within a few days. Also, shaving doesn’t always allow you to get to those hard to reach areas!
Waxing is not a permanent solution to hair removal, but it definitely slows down the regrowth process. The hair is removed by the roots, which causes it to return in 2-8 weeks versus a few days. Your skin stays smoother, and once you begin waxing on a regular basis, the hair that does grow back is generally softer to the touch.
Here are just a few examples of hair removal that we offer!
• Brow Waxing–There’s an old saying that the eyes are the window to the soul. Part of what gives our eyes their dynamic look is the eyebrow. Brow waxing or sculpting is available to help shape the eyebrow. We also offer brow maintenance every four weeks.
• Bikini Waxing–This type of service has long been a favorite for spa customers, especially during the summer months. We offer several variations on bikini waxing, including full legs with bikini or the popular Brazilian.
• Body waxing–Men often enjoy this service at our salon as we can wax arms, legs, abdomen, chest, shoulders, and backs. Body waxing is a wonderful option for the man on the go who always wants to look his best.
Will it hurt?
The benefits of brow waxing, bikini waxing, and body waxing outweigh the benefits of shaving. The one factor between the two that is vastly different is the pain factor. Waxing can be uncomfortable, especially if it’s your first time or if you are waxing in a delicate area. The more you utilize the waxing process, the less the pain becomes.
