Waxing, Depilation and Epilation Service

DEPILATION-means that the hair is removed at the skin line. Shaving and using chemical depilatories are examples of depilation. Depilatories are chemicals that dissolve the hair so that it can be wiped or washed away.
EPILATION or Waxing -means that the hair is removed below the surface of the skin. The advantage of waxing over depilation is that it will take longer for the hair to grow back if the hair is removed by waxing. Also if waxing is performed repeatedly on the same area over a prolonged period of time, the quantity of hair will be permanently reduced.
There are two types of waxing techniques. The first and most common method is warm waxing. The second method is cold waxing. Cold waxing is the method that most people use at home. Warm waxing is more effective then cold waxing and is the type of hair removal that we perform in this salon. Any hair baring area can be waxed including the bikini, body, eyebrow or leg.

Warm Waxing Procedure:

►The esthetician will discuss the hair removal process. She will examine the areas you want treated.
►The wax is heated in a warmer until it is just melted and then it is applied to the skin with a small wooden spatula. Next, the esthetician will place a strip of muslin cloth or a cotton cloth over the wax. The wax is allowed to cool and then she will remove the strip of cloth quickly. The cloth is pulled in the opposite direction of the hair growth. This sounds painful but it only lasts a few seconds.
►Once the cotton strip has been removed, hand pressure is applied to the area to minimize the discomfort. The area will be red and sensitive for a few hours.
If you are using Retin-A, let your esthetician know. You should stop the medication 3-4 weeks prior to the treatment. Otherwise, you may be left with a sore area which could heal with a brown spot.
