What is Waxing?

Waxing is a popular method of hair removal. At Glow Up
Aesthetics, we offer waxing for the brows or face, including areas such as the
upper lip, chin, or sideburns. Through waxing, you can achieve defined eyebrows
with a flattering shape or remove unwanted facial hair. The waxing process
involves thoroughly cleansing the skin before applying a warm melted wax to the
treatment area. The wax will then be quickly removed by covering it with a
strip and pulling it away. This removes hair by the roots for smooth skin.

Is Waxing Right for Me?

Waxing is a great option for those who see unwanted hair in
areas such as the upper lip or chin. It can also be a good option for patients
who want to adjust or define their eyebrow shape for a flattering, groomed
look. Most people are good candidates for waxing. However, if you are taking
antibiotics, have an active infection, or have sensitive skin, you should
inform your aesthetician before completing the treatment. These factors will not
always disqualify you from being a candidate, but they can cause irritation
after waxing.

What are the Benefits of Waxing?

The primary benefit of waxing is the long-lasting results
compared to options such as shaving. Waxing removes hairs by the root, meaning
that it takes much longer for hair in the area to regrow and results are much
smoother. Most people also find waxing to be less painful than options such as
plucking or tweezing, as all hairs are removed quickly in a single instance.
Waxing is also more effective at removing smaller, shorter hairs compared to
hair removal options such as sugaring.

What to Expect After Waxing

After your waxing appointment, you can expect some redness
in the treatment area. This can last for up to 12 hours, so it is generally
recommended to schedule a waxing appointment for at least one full day before a
special event. Some mild irritation may also occur. Otherwise, you can enjoy
your waxing results immediately after the service.

Waxing Maintenance

Scheduling routine waxing appointments will vary depending
on the speed of your natural hair growth cycle. On average, facial waxing
results will last between two and eight weeks, with most people scheduling
their appointments about every 4-8 weeks. In between sessions, some choose to
carefully pluck or tweeze stray hairs. However, this is not generally
recommended between brow waxes as you could risk the shape that has been
achieved by your aesthetician.
