What is waxing?
Waxing is a method of semi-permanent hair removal that removes the hair from the root. On average hairs will take between four and six weeks to re-grow. You can have almost any area of your body waxed, including your eyebrows, face, bikini, legs, arms, chest, back, abdomen, and feet. New hair growth in waxed areas is soft and fine, not sharp and coarse like shaved hair. After repeated waxing the hair can appear to sparser, and in some cases lighter. Waxing should be performed every four to six weeks by an experienced professional. This is the average growth cycle for hair, and allows for your hair to be the correct length at your next wax.
If you're worried about pain, take a Panadol or two about an hour before your appointment.
Are there different types of wax?
Strip waxing involves spreading wax thinly over your skin. A cloth or paper strip is then pressed on top and ripped off the direction of hair growth. This removes the wax as well as your hair and dead skin cells, leaving your skin silky smooth. Strip wax is generally used on larger areas of your body, such as your legs or back.
Hot waxing involves spreading a thicker amount of wax on the skin, and once dry, is ripped off against the direction of hair growth on its own. This removes the wax as well as your hair and dead skin cells, leaving your skin silky smooth. Hot wax is used on more sensitive areas of your body like your underarms and bikini line.
What parts of my body can I get waxed at Caci?
At Caci we offer eyebrow shaping that can include waxing, which you can read about here. We also offer other waxing services, including upper lip and chin.
There is no reason to hide your beautiful face because of pesky upper lip or chin hair. Bleaching may help to hide the hair but it will still be there, leaving you self-conscious. Unlike other methods, waxing removes the entire hair follicle so that a completely new hair will have to grow in its place. No more hiding your face, show it off instead!
At Caci we offer you underarm, arm and leg waxing services. If you would like more information about bikini and Brazilian waxes, please see click here.
Waxing your body has the same benefits as waxing your face. Because the hair is pulled out from the root, it takes longer for it to grow all the way back to the surface. It's best to prepare for body for any type of wax, this includes exfoliating the area before hand and if required, taking one or two Panadol about half an hour before your appointment.
At Caci, we offer arm, chest, back and leg waxing services for men. We offer a completely discreet and professional service, and all our clinics have experience working with male clients.
The actual process of waxing can take less time than shaving and can last for weeks. Just like for women, the wax will also exfoliate the skin, leaving it feeling silky smooth.
