What is waxing?

Waxing is the process of hair removal, where wax is used to effectively remove the hair from the root.  Body waxing is an effective method of removing large amounts of hair at once. It is a long-lasting method, as hair in waxed areas will not grow back for three to six weeks.  When hair is shaved or removed by depilatory cream, the hair is removed at the surface rather than the hair root. Within a few days, the hair can reappear back at the surface. With these methods, hair tends to grow back in a rough stubble. Areas that are repeatedly waxed over long periods of time often exhibit regrowth that is softer. 

At Pure Aesthetics Skin & Body we only use premium strip and hot wax and cater for sensitive skins.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Please ensure that the hairs are long enough to be waxed. Usually a minimum of around 0.75cm-1cm is the desired length for effectively removing the hair. If you have shaved your hairs, you will need to wait approximately 2 weeks before the hair is long enough for waxing. 
  • Use a loofah to exfoliate your skin and prevent ingrown hairs.
  • Avoid gels, moisturizers and oils before you wax as it may interfere with hair removal.
  • Avoid tanning 24 hours before your wax.

No wax will be entirely pain-free, however, at Pure Aesthetic Skin & Body our Therapists are quick and effective at waxing which will ensure less pain and a faster experience. We also use hot (or gentle) wax for more sensitive areas as it only adheres to the hair and not the skin, making it a lot less painful.

It is recommended that you avoid direct sunlight, excessive exercise or heat such as saunas, scratching or touching the area and fake tan for 24 hours after your treatment.

Immediately after your waxing session, make sure you wear loose clothing. This is to avoid sweat and friction, which might increase the risk of irritation.

Two to three days after waxing is the perfect time to exfoliate. Your pores will have closed and the skin will have recovered. 

If you notice ingrown hairs after waxing, leave them alone for at least 48 hours, then exfoliate the waxed area gently. Do not pick at or squeeze your ingrown hairs as they could scar.
