what is waxing?
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 hair being on a different human hair growth cycle.
What is speed waxing?
Speed waxing is done with soft wax and is accomplished by spreading a wax thinly over the skin in the direction of the hair growth. A cloth or paper strip is applied and pressed firmly, adhering the strip to the wax and hair. The next step is crucial to making it speed waxing. The strip is then quickly ripped against the direction of hair growth with voracity of a velociraptor.
Who cannot be waxed?
Sadly, not all can be waxed. People who should avoid waxing include those:
With psoriasis, eczema, and/or undiagnosed rashes/blisters on the site to be treated
Prone to keloids and scarring or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation
On certain medications such as blood thinners, antibiotics, Accutane, and/or steroids
Under the age of 18, unless written parental consent is given. Your parent/guardian would need to come into the studio to sign a consent form.
Can I get waxed if I am on my period or pregnant?
The answer is yes, you can be waxed throughout your pregnancy and while on your period, although you will be certainly more sensitive.
