The Benefits of Wax Hair Removal
Have you considered wax hair removal for face and body? There are many misconceptions about hair removal. It’s important to know that waxing doesn't have to be an uncomfortable experience and that the rewards of waxing are well worth it. Whether you're headed out on vacation or considering waxing as your method of hair removal this summer, read on to learn how wax hair removal can free up your life.
Heidi Phifer Esthetics serves one client at a time so you can receive these intimate services in privacy and confidentiality. When you arrive for your first session, you will be greeted with an intake form. This give us an opportunity to thoroughly discuss your skin, aftercare and any concerns you may have with waxing. After the consultation you will be given a few moments to settle in on the heated treatment bed. We will then proceed with the service which you will find goes by fairly quickly.
Your skin will be gently prepped with a cleansing solution. A variety of soft and hard waxes are available for even the most sensitive skin, one or multiple waxes will be selected depending on your skin type and/or area to be waxed. After thorough hair removal your skin will be soothed and nourished with aftercare products appropriate for your skin type.
If you struggle with ingrown hairs, you will find that waxing is your solution. Waxing pulls hair from the root, when the new hair grows in, it has a fine tip. The hair growth lays flat to the skin as it grows, leaving the skin free from stubble and irritation. Heidi Phifer Esthetics offers home care to reduce ingrown hair and irritation associated with hair removal. We also offer 10 minute ingrown treatments to deeply exfoliate and release ingrown hairs and congestion. These treatments can be done in a series prior to hair removal for more serious cases and/or done after the waxing service to keep the skin clear.
Hair does NOT grow back thicker, longer, or darker. This is an old wives tale. Waxing weakens the follicle and over time hair growth cycles synchronize, leading to a longer duration between waxes (smoother skin for longer), less discomfort (a weakened papilla and finer hair results in less pull) and less irritation (a hair free follicle holds less bacteria).
Consistent waxing will ultimately leave the skin beautiful, clean and smooth. This month, Heidi Phifer Esthetics is offering a free patch test to anyone who is interested in waxing so you can see for yourself that waxing doesn't have to be uncomfortable.
