Your Total Guide to the Waxing Hair Removal Procedure 

Today, there are a variety of hair removal products and procedures available, including shaving, waxing, and hair removal. Waxing is a popular option for many individuals and if you are wondering whether this is the right hair removal procedure for you, here’s everything you need to know: 

What Happens During a Waxing Treatment? 

Waxing consists of applying either hard or soft wax onto the treatment area (where you want to get rid of hair) and then pulling it off in the opposite direction of hair growth. During waxing, the hair is pulled out at the root. Following the procedure, your esthetician may apply a lotion to soothe and clean your skin. 

How Do I Prepare for a Waxing Treatment? 

There are a few things you can do prior to your waxing treatment to ensure the best results. This includes: 

  • Allowing your hair to grow about an inch before scheduling a waxing session.
  • Do not tan before your waxing appointment to minimize any possible damage to your skin.
  • If you find waxing a little painful, you can take a painkiller to diminish any discomfort. You can even talk to your esthetician about using a numbing lotion. 
  • Prior to your treatment, your esthetician may disinfect and clean the area, which allows the wax to stick more easily to your hairs. 

How Long Does a Waxing Session Take? 

The treatment time will vary depending on the size and number of treatment areas and it can take anywhere from 15-30 minutes. 

What Are the Benefits of Waxing? 

If you are considering waxing, it’s important to note that this hair removal procedure can provide you with many benefits, including: 

  • Slower hair growth 
  • Finer hair growth 
  • Fast and convenient treatment 
  • It is less irritating to your skin when compared to other methods such as shaving or using hair removal creams 
  • You’ll have smooth, hair-free skin for approximately 3-4 weeks 


Are There Any Side Effects? 

Typically, the skin in the treatment area will become red as a normal reaction to follicle removal. You may want to use a cold compress to relieve any discomfort or redness. 

What Body Parts and Skin Type Can Benefit From Waxing? 

Unlike laser hair removal that may not be suitable for all skin types and body parts, waxing can be used to remove hair from any part of the body (including the eyebrows) and it is suitable for patients of all skin types.
