If you’re tired of shaving all the time, consider the magic that waxing has to offer. When you visit our office, you’ll see some of the other associated benefits you might not expect.
When you have your hair waxed, one of the benefits is that the strips and the wax used will pull the hair from the roots instead of just pulling the hair from skin’s surface. Since the root is removed, you’re not going to see hair for a few days to even a week or two after the process is complete. Another benefit of waxing is that you can remove a large area of hair at one time and in just a few seconds. Wax can be applied to your entire leg or other areas so all of the hair is removed at once instead of going back over your skin with a razor if you don’t remove all of the hair the first time.
If you have sensitive skin, you know that it can be difficult getting through a shaving session without a nick. The knees and ankles are prone to these issues because they are round and often a bit more difficult to shave than the rest of your leg. When you choose the magic that waxing offers, you won’t have to worry about all of the small cuts that seem to appear out of nowhere on your skin. Another issue that often arises with shaving is irritation and redness, especially if you don’t use shaving creams or gels along with a fresh razor with each session.
Waxing tends to leave your skin a bit smoother than shaving. This is because the hair is pulled out from the root. You’ll usually notice that the hair in areas where you use wax is thinner and that it appears lighter once it starts to grow back. When your skin feels smoother, you’ll usually feel better about wearing certain types of clothes that you might not want to wear as often as you would if you were to shave.
