Waxing is one of the most popular temporary methods for removing unwanted hair for both men and women. Most parts of the body can be waxed including Brazilian waxing for men and women, buttocks and back. Waxing removes the hair at the root and exfoliates the epidermis leaving the skin soft and supple.
Results last from 3-8 weeks depending upon the individual. It is an effective method especially to remove large amounts of hair at one time. Its a very cost effective way to remove unwanted hair for those special occasions or for every day living.

I use a hard wax which is different from strip wax. The wax is applied thickly with no cloth or paper strips. The wax then hardens when it cools allowing for easy removal with out the aid of strips or cloths.
Cleanliness and sanitation are my first priority. The treatment room is cleaned and sanitized between clients to avoid cross contamination. I never use the same wax source or wood spatulas on more than one client. This avoids contamination and reassures my commitment of infection control. My waxing services are among the best in the area.
In my waxing method I will test a small area of skin with the wax to ensure the temperature is correct. I warm up the wax to the right temperature to allow it to spread easily over your skin in the direction of the hair growth. Your hair is covered with the wax which then cools and grasps the hair. Then in a second I pull off the strip like a band aid removing the wax and the hair with it. I remove any remaining wax residue with a wax remover, if appropriate. I apply a lotion or gel to alleviate some of the redness associated with waxing. Your skin should be back to normal in anywhere from a few minutes to a couple of hours.
I have specialized products which help manage ingrown hair inflammation. Hair waxing can cause your skin to sting and I find applying soothing lotion to be helpful afterwards. Some people find their skin may react with redness and bumps which typically disappear after a few hours. A simple way to greatly minimize the discomfort is to press hard on the skin right after the waxing strip is pulled off. Additionally you may wish to apply ice over the waxed area to help reduce the risk of swelling and skin irritation.
I do not recommend waxing for clients with varicose veins as waxing could exacerbate the valve problem. Users of Retin A and Retisol A and Differin should discontinue use three days prior to waxing to reduce post treatment inflammation. Waxing should not be done on people with psoriasis, eczema or on skin that is irritated, chapped or sunburned.
People who are inexperienced with waxing often find trying to do it on their own at home is messy slow and difficult. They usually end up breaking the hair at the surface instead of removing the entire hair follicle. Hair grows back quickly if its only broken.
Generally most people find that wax treatment performed by a trained and experience practitioner usually results in less pain, complete hair removal and find satisfaction with soft smooth skin results and coordinated hair cycling.
So the next time you’re thinking about waxing, have a look at my competitive pricing and come to Advanced Electrolysis for a wax treatment you are sure to find cost effective, less painful and highly satisfactory.
Why Waxing Is Better Than Shaving And Depilatories
Chemical shaving. It doesn’t penetrate the skin to the dermal papilla so there is no slowing down hair growth. The product has an unpleasant smell and can burn your skin. I never recommend depilatories.
Waxing completely removes the hair follicle down to the dermal papilla. Consequently, when you wax your legs, the follicle will regenerate and that takes about 3 weeks. Your legs stay smoother for longer. However, all hairs cycle at different times so some of the hair you wax out will not actually be a “growing hair”. Some will be in a shed stage (telogen) so those hairs are on their way out beginning to form in the dermis to replace the shedding hair. Those are the hairs that will appear first after you wax your legs. They could show up in a little as a week. I discuss this with clients so they know what to expect. I usually show clients the underside of their used wax strip which clearly shows the cycling follicle.
Waxing lasts longer then shaving. Shaving simply cuts off the hair. The follicle under the skin just keeps growing, which is why it feels short and prickly the next day. Its just short. If you let the hair grow longer, it will feel softer.View Price List
