All You Need To Know About Waxing…

Waxing is one of the most popular and cost effective ways to remove unwanted hair. This dates back all the way to Egyptian and Roman times. Many customs considered the removal of hair to be more hygienic and a necessity for many centuries. Both men and women would depilate their entire body hair and often adhered to the expectation that hair should be removed for at least 40 days, all these years later, we still recommend Waxing every 4-5 weeks.

What are the benefits of Waxing?

Unlike shaving, Waxing actually removes the hair directly from the root. This means over a period of time and with repeated treatments, hair often grows back finer and in some cases more sparse.

Waxing also acts as an exfoliator, as it removes the top layer of dead skin cells.

It’s quick and affordable. Unlike some of the other methods such as, electrolysis and laser. Most Waxing treatments can be carried out within 20-30 minutes depending on the individual.

There are also no harsh chemicals or ingredients that could harm the skin.

What’s the difference between Warm Wax and Hot Wax?

These are often referred to as strip wax and peelable wax. Warm wax is applied in a thin layer using a wooden spatula and then removed with either a paper or fabric strip. Hot wax is also applied using a disposable spatula, however because it hardens as it cools on the skin, it is removed without a strip.

Warm wax is often used for larger areas such as legs, arms or chest and backs of male clients where as Hot wax is used for smaller areas such as underarms, facial areas or intimate waxing.

When looking for a Waxing brand, I wanted to offer my clients the very best and Sienna X never fail to disappoint. They use the finest natural ingredients to create the most stunning waxes. They also use Defensil® Plus within their pre and post care products. This is a combination of ingredients that help to protect, soothe and regenerate the skin.

Pre Treatment Advice…

  • Allow at least three weeks of hair growth for best results.
  • If you are new to waxing, have skin sensitivities or any allergies, I would recommend a patch test 24-48 hours before a treatment.
  • Gently exfoliate the area the day before your treatment, this will help avoid ingrown hairs and will help to give you a smoother finished result.
  • Avoid using lotions or cosmetics on the treatment area on the day of your appointment.

Post Treatment Advice…

  • All aftercare advice should be followed for 24-48 hours after your treatment.
  • Avoid hot baths or showers
  • Do not expose the area to UV light, sunbathing, heat or electrical equipment.
  • Avoid swimming, spa baths or saunas
  • Avoid touching the area with fingers.
