You have heard your friends, relatives or colleagues talk about the good, ugly and bad about waxing, and you probably developed a certain perception about it. Did you seek to know why some of them talked ill about waxing? Most of the people who say something ugly or bad about waxing are those who always stick to DIY methods and those who use the wrong waxing supplies. Waxing is a beauty procedure that leaves your skin with a better look, texture and feel. No matter your skin type, a professional aesthetician will use the right waxing supplies to make waxing more satisfying and with amazing results. See why waxing is an incredible procedure for your skin:
Less Susceptibility to Inflammation
Did you know that some people suffer chronic skin inflammation due to repeated shaving? Skin-to-skin friction and razor friction cause discolouration and inflammation. The skin becomes thicker once it reacts to inflammation, and that's how skin discolouration comes about. The pigment-making cells, also called melanocytes, also cause skin discolouration when their activity is increased. People with darker skin types are prone to discolouration after waxing, but professional aesthetics know what to do to avoid repeated friction that causes it.
Regrowth is usually slower for those who go for professional waxing. Professional aestheticians know how to pull hair from the root without subjecting the client to much pain. This way, regrowth will be less by the time your next appointment is due. The ripped hair follicle takes time to be renewed, and the hair shaft takes longer to reach the skin surface if the correct waxing techniques and products are used. Most waxing appointments are scheduled between four weeks even though it depends on the areas being waxed and waxing technique used.
Less Prickliness and Annoying Itching
Hair gives a prickly sensation and starts itching when it surfaces. Your hair will not reach the skin surface quickly if it's properly waxed. This way, the smooth feel and youthful look remains for longer. People who shave experience the prickly feeling of growing hair since the razor cuts the hair at an angle, and some of these people end up with darker hair. This doesn't bother people who go for waxing since prickly sensation doesn't occur.
Waxing also helps you to avoid cuts and nicks, and it reduces ingrown hairs. Waxing helps the hair to grow back progressively sparser and finer, and it gently strips off the skin's outermost layer. Enjoying all these waxing benefits begins with identifying the right waxing supplies to use and a competent aesthetician to carry out the process. Some of the waxing supplies that make the process more efficient include wax warmers, strips, pre-wax cleanser, oil or powder, applicators, post-wax cleanser, aloe-based gel or skin smoother and a waxing kit.
