Waxing in Brighton
Super smooth warm and hot waxing for men and women at Little Jasmine Therapies
Waxing is a method of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for two to eight weeks. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, bikini area, legs, arms, back, abdomen and feet. There are many types of waxing suitable for removing unwanted hair.
Warm wax is the most popularly used method with an ability to remove hair quickly and efficiently. Warm wax is a much quicker treatment than hot wax. The wax is applied sparingly and removed straight after; it is not left on the skin to dry like hot wax. It is very easy to control the application of the warm wax making it ideal for facial hair removal e.g. lips, chin, eyebrows and sideburns. Warm wax consists of resin, paraffin wax, glucose syrup and honey.
Warm wax is applied to the skin in a very thin layer using a spatula. A fabric or paper strip is then pressed on the waxed area and removed quickly causing minimum discomfort. Sometimes slight reddening may appear on the skin afterwards but this is completely normal and will fade in a few hours.
Advantages of warm waxing
- The procedure is much quicker than hot wax
- Larger areas can be waxed at once
- It is suitable for most hair types fine and coarse. It can remove strong deep rooted hairs successfully
- Hair re-growth is finer
Hot wax depilation has been available over many years but more recently it is not as common as warm wax. Hot wax consists of beeswax and a resin. Hot wax is melted to a thicker consistency than warm wax.
When the wax is applied to the skin with a spatula, it coats the hair with a thick layer. As the wax cools it becomes firmer contracting around the hair and gripping it tightly. The wax remains on the skin until it becomes opaque in colour-drying to form a slightly tacky consistency. It is then pulled off the skin with a fast movement.
Advantages of hot wax
- It works well onto small patches of strong coarse hair
- The wax gets a better grip of the hair than warm wax
- It does not leave a sticky residue like warm wax
- It is good for removing shorter hair
