What is waxing itself?
It is a procedure of hair removal using different kinds of natural wax. This is one of the most common way to get rid of undesirable body hair. This is quite fast and affordable method with minimal side effects as ingrown hair or irritations. Heated wax is spread on the treated area. After this with the use of cloth or paper bandage it is removed in a quick pace against the way of hair growth.
Which wax type is used?
At Anna Esthetics we use several kinds of wax for different body zones. They are hard (hot) and soft (warm) wax. You can always ask your esthetician about the consist of mixture to prevent allergy reactions after the procedure.
What is the difference between hard and soft wax?
Soft wax isn’t as hot as hard one, so it looks more like paste, not the peace of plastic. The main difference is in the way of usage. Hard wax is usually applied for small or delicate areas. It causes anesthetic effect because of temperature. So, the skin is warmed up and hair roots aren’t held inside derma as strongly as usual. The soft type is easier to remove and better for wide zones such as legs and arms.
What about the Ouch-factor?
Yes, It isn’t a very pleasant procedure but each client has his own pain threshold. Somebody will experience tickling sensation but another one – more unpleasant feelings. Everything depends on the specialist and his professionalism. Our estheticians have the huge experience for all kinds of depelation, including waxing. So, they perform it quickly but delicately. You won’t face the horrible and stinging pain. The most aching feeling is caused by your fear before the procedure. After several sessions hair becomes weaker and the process of waxing won’t be as painful as during your first visit.
What is an appropriate hair length for waxing?
To perform waxing properly your hair should be at least ¼ inch long. It is an appropriate length, because the shorter ones won’t be caught by the mixture. So, the skin won’t be clean enough from undesirable hair and it will be necessary to perform waxing again after the small amount of time. This is too unwanted because of the extra skin traumatism. But after first three-four appointments, when your body will completely get used to waxing, it will become normal to perform the procedure on shorter hair.
If your length now is bigger than 1/3 inch, than it is more appropriate if you shave the area and book your visit in a few weeks later.
How long does the visit last?
It depends on the size of treated zone, amount and thickness of hair. Also the visits of regular customers last not as long, because of the hair state. Usually it takes about 20-30 minutes for deep bikini depilation, 20 min for legs and 10-15 for hands. Sometimes the process can last longer if it is needed to clean treated zone with tweezers after wax.
How many appointments should I have during a month?
It would be enough to make a visit to your esthetician for waxing once a month. Your hair will grow in a smaller amount if you get the procedure regularly. Furthermore, it becomes weaker, so you won’t need to perform waxing more often. Normally, the effect stays for 3-4 weeks, but after the regular session of appointments this period will become bigger.
What is the age limit for waxing?
There is no strict age limits. But if you are under 18, it is necessary to bring the paper permission from parents. It would be also good if your mum will book a date for you herself.
May somebody stay with me during the procedure?
Yes, it is possible for our teenage clients, where we need a permission from parents. But for adults it isn’t appropriate to bring someone to the treatment room . Only the clients and their waxologists are allowed to stay during the procedure. This helps you to relax and make the whole process in less tension. Furthermore, waxing doesn’t last too long, so your escort may stay in a waiting room for visitors.
What happens with the hair state after wax? Does it become darker or thicker?
No, it is absolutely a myth! If you perform waxing regularly and don’t use other methods of hair removal between visits, you will get the opposite result. Hair of the treated zone will grow weaker and lighter. Sometimes, even in smaller amounts!
Does the price depend on the hair amount?
No. You pay for a whole procedure, which price is set by the administration of Anna Esthetics. It doesn’t depend on the condition or hair amount.
Which to choose: bikini/modified/brazilian?
There are three different ways of bikini hair removal. Basic bikini means that the cosmetologist will wax visible area up the panty line and the inner side of thighs. Modified one provides that the small hair line will be left in front. Full brazilian is a deep bikini depilation, which includes even backside waxing. Which to choose is up to you and the decision depends only on your desires.
Is waxing normal for pregnant women?
Yes, it is. Wax doesn’t cause any harm to the future mother and her baby. But remember that sometimes during pregnancy women become more sensitive and irritated. So, some painful feelings may be more unpleasant. Don’t forget to consult with the esthetician before the visit, especially if you take any specific medications for normal pregnancy.
