The Benefits of Waxing for Facial Hair Removal

September 10, 2017

Facial hair is a problem for many women, especially those whose hair is more prevalent or that grows in very dark and noticeably. Thankfully, there are many solutions to the facial hair problem, and waxing wins out at the top of the list.

What are the other options? Many try bleaching darker hairs, but this can backfire if the treatment leaves behind a noticeable golden hue. Of course, shaving is a tried-and-true hair removal method, but many worry that hair will grow back thicker. While this is not technically the case, any hair that is cut (including by shaving) leaves behind a blunt edge that appears thick as the hair regrows, creating the look of thick stubble. Laser hair removal is an effective option, but it can be costly.

Waxing is one of the most economical and effective ways to remove hair. Unlike shaving, waxing removes hair at the root, so there are no blunt edges to stand out on your face as hair regrows.

This makes waxing a longer-term solution, since the hair must first reform its root before re-growing, which can take about two weeks. By contrast, shaving only removes hair for five days or less, since the root remains intact.

Professional waxing has the benefit of being very precise, since the only hair removed is the hair trapped in the wax. This makes it a perfect option for facial hair removal, allowing the technician to perfectly shape your eyebrows.

Normally, hair follicle damage is a bad thing – but not when you want the hair gone for good! Over time, waxing and constantly removing hair at the root results in follicles that can no longer grow. This means that over time, hair will gradually quit growing on the treated areas!

Finally, the cost of waxing is considerably less that the second-best alternative, laser hair removal. While shaving is also inexpensive, its cons outweigh the pros because shaved hair continues to grow back and can appear even thicker.

A professional face waxing is precise, effective, and has minimal discomfort.
