What is waxing at Simply Radiant in Essendon?

Waxing is the process of a semi-permanent hair removal method that pulls the hair out from the root of the follicle. The technique uses a covering of a sticky substance, such as wax, that clings to the hairs on the body. The removal of the wax is quickly pulled out from its blood supply. This process can take between 3 to 6 weeks for the new hair to grow back.

Almost any area of the body is suitable for removing unwanted hair, including arms, legs, back, eyebrows, abdomen, face, bikini area, feet and more.

What are the benefits of Waxing?

There are numerous benefits of waxing and below is a list of just a few:

  1. Long lasting smooth and silky skin – The hair takes between 3-6 weeks to grow back, ensuring an extended period of smooth, silky and hair free skin.2.
  2. Exfoliation – As the wax is removed from the body the dead skin cells come with it, leaving the skin soft and smooth.
  3. No skin damage – Waxing does not cause adverse effects such as pigmentation, cuts or bad smelling skin. The wax used in the process is 100% natural thus leaving no chance of reactions.
  4. Less growth – The blood supply that allows for the hair to grow, weakens after each waxing appointment, reducing the growth pattern. Leaving the hair to become softer and finer.
