Other than the obvious hair removal and leaving the skin smooth and soft, there are some additional benefits waxing offers when it comes to beautiful skin. And when treatments are performed consistently by a knowledgeable professional working with their clients on proper pre- and post-wax care, the results speak for themselves. So let’s talk about some of our favorite waxing wins and why this form of hair removal will always be number one in our book.
Slow the Growth
Truth: consistent waxing treatments will make unwanted hair grow back finer and sparser—that’s a BIG win. The key here is encouraging your clients to wax year-round as regular treatments work to weaken the root creating less hair in the long run.
Removes Dead Skin Cells
Since waxing acts as an exfoliator, removing the top layer of dead skin, it allows new, smooth skin to shine through. The waxing process, also helps circulate blood flow to support skin health and keep it soft and glowing.
No Stubble or Cuts
After waxing, the regrowth of the hair is very slow, taking 4 to 6 weeks in most cases. Waxed hair is pulled out by the roots which means the regrowth are new hairs, very fine at the tips, leaving no stubble. Waxing also avoids any cuts or nicks that can leave scars from shaving.
Fewer Ingrown Hairs
While both waxing and shaving can cause ingrown hairs, they are minimized with waxing. By educating your clients on what they can do pre-and post wax, along with proper waxing techniques during their appointment can go a long way in keeping those pesky bumps under control.
