Waxing is used to get rid of unwanted hair. The procedure is safe and effective, and can be used on all skin and hair types. It is an excellent way to deal with most hair removal. This is the easiest and most convenient way to go about removing hair from large areas.
With hot waxing, a thin layer of heated wax is applied to the skin in the direction of the hair growth. The hair becomes embedded in the wax as it cools. Strips are pre-coated with wax or a sugar-based substance and pressed onto the skin in the direction of the hair growth and pulled off in the opposite direction.
