For those new to waxing, deciding who to trust for your hair removal can be difficult. You want your first waxing experience to be as comfortable and relaxing as can be. You also want to leave the salon with hair-free skin without having to worry about later side effects. At Lucienne Salon & Medical Spa, we use quality waxing formulas and offer a range of waxes to match your skin’s unique needs. With us, silky smooth skin is one step away.

An Introduction to Waxing at Lucienne

Waxing originated in Egypt some 3,000 years ago, but it remains one of the most popular hair removal methods even today. There are several reasons why that’s the case. First, waxing can quickly and effectively remove unwanted hair nearly anywhere on the body, including the arms, underarms, legs, back, bikini area and face. Second, pulling hair from its root helps achieve well-groomed, smooth and semi-permanent results. Third, waxing can even provide added skin benefits. 

Waxing is done by applying sticky wax with a spatula directly to the area with unwanted hair. Then, pellon strips are placed over the wax and quickly removed to pull the wax off along with the unwanted hair. In some cases, the wax is left to harden and is later peeled off. After waxing, we apply soothing products to calm your skin.

At Lucienne Salon & Medical Spa, we use a range of specially formulated waxes to prevent skin irritation and match the different needs of our clients. Our waxing formulas are safe and tested; our equipment and salon are 100% hygienic, and we make sure to provide a relaxing and comfortable environment to our clients. 

The Benefits of Waxing

There are different ways to remove unwanted hair, but not every method comes with the benefits of waxing. When performed by an experienced provider using the correct formulas, waxing can offer the following benefits: 

Long-lasting results

Shaving needs to be done almost daily to keep the skin hair-free. The same holds true for depilatory creams. The results from waxing, on the other hand, last four to six weeks on average. Because hair is pulled from its root, it takes longer for it to regrow than when it is sliced down with a razor. This means you’ll save time and avoid the stress of shaving daily. 

Smooth skin

Pulling hair from its root with waxing also leaves the skin feeling and looking silky smooth. If you’re familiar with razor bumps and stubble, then you understand what we mean. Waxing also removes dry and dead skin cells along with the hair, which is another reason why your skin feels positively different after a good wax. 

Less irritation

Shaving and other hair removal methods can lead to cuts, burns, itching, redness and ingrown hairs. Laser hair removal can also irritate sensitive skin. When waxing is performed by a trained professional using quality formulas, there is minimal risk of irritation. 

Less hair growth

When done regularly, waxing can reduce the number and thickness of unwanted hairs. Regular waxing injures hair follicles, making them weaker with each subsequent wax. As a result, the hair that regrows is thinner and shorter. In some cases, hair may stop growing in the area altogether. 

How to Prepare for Waxing

To ensure seamless results and to minimize the risk of irritation, you should prepare properly for your waxing appointment. Our providers at Lucienne Salon & Medical Spa will share guidelines so you can come to your appointment ready. These usually contain the following tips:

Hair length

Hair needs to be at least 1/4 inch long and no longer than three inches for wax to adhere properly to it. If your hair is longer than that, trim it to the proper length before treatment. If you normally shave, let your hair grow to the recommended length. 

Skin Care

Take good care of your skin the days leading up to your appointment with daily cleansing, applying lotion or moisturizers, and wearing high SPF sunscreen. However, do not use any product on your skin 24 hours before your appointment so the wax can adhere properly. 

Pain management

While waxing is an excellent hair removal method, it can be painful. If you are pain-sensitive, taking an over-the-counter pain reliever before your appointment can help make this treatment less uncomfortable.

The Waxing Process

Your provider will prepare the skin with a gentle cleanser. They will then spread the wax in the direction of hair growth. Next, they will apply pellon strips over the wax and quickly pull it in the direction opposite of hair growth. This process is repeated until all unwanted hair is removed. Depending on the size of the treatment area, waxing takes 15 to 30 minutes to complete.

Waxing Aftercare

Most patients have mild and temporary redness immediately after treatment. Your provider will explain how to take care of your skin and which products to use to prevent skin irritation in the days to weeks after treatment. Other than that, you can resume your routine as usual after a waxing appointment.
