Waxing is the process of removing the hair from the root. It may take 3-4 weeks before the hair is ¼ inch long, in most people. ¼ inch is the minimum length needed to wax again.
A piece of muslin fabric 3 x 9 is pressed into the wax and the whole strip is pulled off, grabbing the wax & hair in one transfer. Strip wax is used for large areas like, arms, back, chest & legs.
It is designed to be less irritating to the area by- shrinking away from the body; hard wax traps the hair and leaves the skin, therefore removing less skin in the pull off action, therefore less pain & irritation. Also known as Strip-less Waxing.
The use of numbing agents to help reduce pain can be used. Tim uses a Benzocaine product. These products can also be purchased on line and applied at home prior to your waxing to enable a more enjoyable waxing experience of sensitive areas.
The area is trimmed and numbing cream is usually applied.
15-30 minutes later we wax using Hard Wax.
Some melted hard wax will be put into a separate cup, when at the correct temp it is applied to the
bikini area in small strips, the size of a 1-inch x 3-inch area. I usually do 2-3 strips. The wax
hardens in 1-3 minutes. The skin is pulled tight and the wax is pulled off. I always offer the
the option to stop and just trim the area if the pain is too much. 95% of people say “not bad at
think guys think this is going to hurt because we have all been kicked in the crotch. Waxing is not
kind of nerve pain. It also will have minimal pain sensation after waxing. Pain occurs only when the
is being pulled off.
After the waxing is complete an after waxing product will be applied to calm sooth relax the area. Usually Neosporin cream. Bikini waxing takes 30 minutes.
