Holladay’s Waxing & Hair Removal Experts

In the 21st century, millions of women wake up each day and shower with a razor in their hands. The time, expense, and labor of daily shaving adds up quickly. On average, we spend an extra 20 minutes shaving in the shower each week. That’s 80 minutes each month and 960 minutes (or 16 hours) each year. What would you do with that time and money back? At Pure Skin Care, our expert waxing appointments put the power back in your hands—all while reducing expense and your chance of ingrown hairs. Here’s what waxing can do for you!

The Many Advantages of Waxing Over Shaving

By some accounts, the process of removing unwanted hair with wax is nearly as old as the history books. This time-tested technique endures for several reasons. For starters, waxing is effective and lasts longer than traditional shaving. Waxing pulls hairs out by the root while shaving only clips the exposed hair shafts. Additionally, waxing leads to fewer cuts or scrapes, is better for sensitive skin, and is more affordable in the long run than razor subscriptions and shaving accessories.

Best of all, waxing can reduce the rate of hair growth and the visual impact of regrown hair. After several waxing appointments, most clients observe a reduction in hair thickness in the treatment area. If you’re sick of shaving each day or paying for all the new blades and creams, waxing may be the best way forward. Waxing can go wherever shaving can and produce superior results nearly anywhere on the body.

Waxing FAQs

For the best and longest-lasting results, clients are advised to let hair grow out to about a half-inch above the skin. If hairs are too short, the wax won’t adhere strongly enough to pull them out. We also ask that you refrain from taking a shower or bath before the treatment. Soaking the hair will soften it, causing it to break more easily and compromising the waxing treatment. Do not apply lotion to the skin before your waxing session.

An antiseptic lotion may be applied to cleanse the area first. Some estheticians apply a light dusting of baby powder to dry the skin before applying wax.

  • If soft wax is used, the warm wax will be spread on the hairs in a thin layer. A cloth strip is then applied to the wax and rubbed in the direction of hair growth. The strip is then pulled quickly in the opposite direction of hair growth while the skin is held taut with the other hand.
  • If hard wax is used, a thicker amount of warm wax is applied and allowed to dry. No cloth strip is applied. The wax is flicked to allow the esthetician to grip it, and it is then pulled off quickly in the opposite direction of hair growth. Hard wax doesn’t adhere to the skin as much as soft wax and is used on more delicate areas such as the bikini area, underarms, and face.

The level of discomfort you will feel depends on your level of pain tolerance in general and on which area is being waxed.

Most people tolerate it well and get used to the sensation after a few treatments. There are numbing crèmes that can be applied 45 minutes before the service if the discomfort is too much. It may help to take two Ibuprofen tablets before your appointment to reduce discomfort and decrease inflammation in the post-waxed area.

For women, it is generally best not to schedule waxing services just before or during your period. You are more sensitive to pain at this time and will experience more discomfort.
