If you want longer-lasting smooth and glowing skin than is possible with shaving, facial waxing might be the perfect solution for you! Waxing can be used all over the face to remove unwanted hair.

What is Waxing?

Waxing is a popular form of hair removal that can be used on the face to shape brows, remove peach fuzz, and eliminate upper lip hair. The hot wax removes hair from the follicle which allows for long-lasting results. When shaping the brows with wax, your prover will carefully map out the desired shape of your brows while keeping in mind the proportions of your face. For other facial areas, the waxing process is similar, and your aesthetician will take the time to carefully treat every spot of the treatment area.

Am I a Candidate for Waxing?

Almost anyone who wants to eliminate facial hair for smoother skin can benefit from facial waxing. However, people with extremely sensitive skin may want to consider other options since the wax could irritate their skin. Some common reasons people choose to get facial waxing is because the lack of hair creates the appearance of a brighter, smoother skin tone and it is easier to apply makeup with a smooth application.

What to Expect

Waxing is a quick and minimally painful treatment. Hard or soft wax can be used. Hard wax does not require a strip to be removed and is less hot than soft wax so it may be the better option for sensitive areas of the face. Soft wax is a liquid form of wax applied to the skin and removed with a cloth strip. The wax will be fairly warm, but it will not burn the skin. The strips of wax are removed quickly in the opposite direction that the hair grows, similar to pulling off a Band-Aid.

After waxing, mild redness and skin sensitivity are common but can be alleviated with ice packs and/or over-the-counter pain relievers. These side effects should not last more than a few hours. The results of facial waxing last about 2-3 weeks, depending on your individual rate of hair growth. Once you start seeing stubble, maintenance treatments can be scheduled to keep up your results.
