Getting Ready For Summertime Means Removing Unwanted Hair With Waxing The advent of beach weather brings with it the joy of again wearing leg-barring shorts and sleeveless shirts. The summer months are here; are your arms and legs ready? Make sure any embarrassing hair is banished before you go bare. There are numerous ways for you to go hairless: electric or straight-edge razor, electrolysis, tweezers and plucking, chemical depilatories, or wax treatments. Each approach has its advantages and disadvantages, but waxing is one of the most popular options available. Hair Removal Positives and Negatives Though shaving with a razor is convenient and affordable, it does not remove hair for any length of time. You will notice stubble growing back within a few days, often accompanied by ingrown hairs. Shaving also has the risks of nicking yourself and uncomfortable razor burn. Electrolysis uses needles placed near follicles of hair, using heat to damage the follicles which will help prevent hair growth. Or you can manually pluck the hair and all or a part of the hair root utilizing tweezers. Electrolysis and plucking can keep hair away for a couple of weeks, but each hair is removed one at a time, making these techniques very time-consuming. If not performed properly, discomfort is also a result from plucking and electrolysis. Surface hair can be removed temporarily with chemical depilatories, but they also are messy and smelly and might irritate and discolor the skin. The Reasons To Choose Waxing Waxing has several advantages over other methods of hair removal. Unlike a razor, which only gets rid of the surface hair, wax treatments eliminate the entire hair and root. Treatments are performed by spreading a thin layer of warm wax on a strip of skin, placing a piece of cloth or paper on top of it and then quickly pulling the strip off in the direction of the hair growth. Another comparable method uses only a thick coat of warm wax which is allowed to cool and solidify prior to being pulled off. There may be a slight sting as hair is removed, but it goes away quickly. A wax treatment won't produce unwanted stubble and can last anywhere from two to six weeks. The hair grows back gradually, but with a softer texture. Over time, with recurring wax treatments, the hair growth may slow down or even cease growing altogether. Large areas of the body are treated at the same time which makes waxing a faster means of hair removal. Face, arms, back, shoulders, chest, legs, bikini area, feet as well as fingers and toes can be waxed. Waxing can be helpful for women and men. There are do it yourself wax products which can be done in your own home, but they can be uncomfortable so you may want to think about the areas you will be waxing before you go this route. If not done properly, you may cause redness, irritation, or even damage to the skin in extremely sensitive areas like the face and genital areas. If you have no formal training in waxing these delicate areas, consider using the services of a salon or esthetician/cosmetologist that has extensive experience and can perform the treatment with the least amount of discomfort, in a relaxed setting.

Before you go for your session, prep your skin for the best results. At least a week before your appointment, quit using any harsh exfoliants or acid peels like AHA (glycolic acid) or BHA (salicylate acid) to reduce the risk of post-treatment inflammation. Let the hair grow to at least 1/4inch for a better grip. The salon can provide further pre-treatment precautions. Skin can be more sensitive and unsuitable for wax treatments if you're pregnant or using prescription antibiotics, hormone replacement, contraception or other medications like Retin-A or Accutane so be sure to inform your salon or esthetician/cosmetologist before treatment. Last but not least, do some research to ensure that you are using a reputable salon or spa that gives good customer service.
