Hot waxing - Every bit as effective as traditional waxing and much less painful!
Hot waxing is a gentler way to remove unwanted hair, making it an ideal choice for sensitive areas such as bikini lines, underarms or the face.
What happens during a hot waxing treatment?
Firstly, your beauty therapist will cleanse the area to be waxed before applying oil to the area. The oil allows the wax to effectively shrink-wrap the hair, but it won't stick to the skin. And because there's less of a pull on your skin when the wax is removed, it won't hurt as much.
The hot wax is then applied in a thick layer to a small area and left to cool for a few seconds. It is then quickly stripped away, taking the hairs with it.
Once the area is fully hair-free, a soothing gel is applied to reduce any redness and swelling and you're free to go.
Does hot wax hurt?
Compared to traditional waxing, hot waxing is much less painful.
It's over so quickly that you barely have time to register any real discomfort and there's no stinging afterwards.
