Waxing is a form of semi-permanent hair removal which removes hair from the root. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for four to six weeks. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including pubic area(called bikini /brazilian waxing ), legs, arms, underarms, back, abdomen and feet. A cloth or paper stip is applied and pressed firmly, adhering strip to the wax and wax to the skin. The strip is then quickly removed to eliminate hair at the root. This removes the wax along with the hair.
Strip-less wax (as opposed to strip wax), also referred to as hard wax, is applied somewhat thickly and with no cloth or paper strips. The wax then hardens when it cools, thus allowing the easy removal by a therapist without the aid of cloths. This waxing method is very beneficial to people who have sensitive skin. Strip-less wax does not adhere to the skin as much as strip wax does, thus making it a good option for sensitive skin as finer hairs are more easily removed because the hard wax encapsulates the hair as it hardens. The strip-less waxing method can also be less painful.
