Hot Waxing is a very popular beauty treatment and is basically a temporary method for hair removal, which takes the hair away at the root to leave the area smooth and hair-free for four to ten weeks.
The most popular areas of the body to have waxed are the legs, arms, underarms, and bikini area, however almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, back, and feet. If you book an appointment for a wax at a beauty salon in the UK, the treatment will probably start with the body area being cleaned of products, such as make-up, fake tan, and deodorant.
The beautician will then spread thickly a hot wax over the skin in two layers, ensuring it is thick enough so create a lip to life off. The wax is then lifted off and removed quickly in short bursts.
This removes the wax to leave the skin feeling smooth. There are a number of benefits to waxing, including the fact that new hair growth in waxed areas is soft and fine, and not sharp and coarse like the regrowth from shaved hair. In addition, repeated waxing makes hair regrowth less common and eventually some hair never regrows.
