So, you have
never waxed anything your brows, underarms, bikini, legs
or that noticeable mustache your girlfriend keeps nagging for
you to remove. Maybe you tried waxing yourself and after the first
pull of that fabric strip, you screamed and then called your best
friend to get you out of a messy situation.

be quick, easy and not as painful as you may think. The process
takes about 20 minutes to shape a brow or bikini, 15-30 minutes

You can even get waxed on your lunch hour. The results are smooth
skin that can last for several weeks. No more shaving every other
day. The outgrowth will need to be waxed again in about a month,
depending on your hair growth.
new to waxing, there are some tips you need to follow. The hair
should be about 1/4 inch long, for best results. The hair grows
in stages, and if you think of it as a new stage coming to the
surface of the skin about once a week, it normally takes about
4-6 weeks for all of the four stages to emerge. The optimum time
to wax would be at the end of the outgrowth cycle, so you can
pull all stages of hair from the root. You can still get waxed
earlier, if the stubble bothers you, but the new stages can emerge
within a few days and the results aren't as long lasting.
Once you have
been a faithful waxer, some of the benefits you can expect, are
longer times in between waxing, slower hair growth, and more sporadic
patches of hair.
to avoid prior to waxing are the use of prescription topical facial
medications, such as Retin A., Renove, Metrogel, Differin, Glycolic
acids and the oral drug Accutane. Inform your Esthetician if you
are taking or have ever taken any of these or similar medications,
before waxing, to prevent lifting of the skin.
for at least 24 hours, you should avoid sunbathing, tanning beds,
saunas, hot water, perfumes, antiperspirants and exfolliants.
Always use sunscreen on any freshly waxed areas, to protect the
newly exposed skin.
