What is waxing?

Don’t hesitate, call in at Pure Hands-On Therapies for all your waxing needs: face, lip, chin, bikini and groin area, armpit, hands, back and legs. Waxing is available for both women and men.

Waxing is the process of removing hair from the root, using warm melted wax specially chosen for the task. It is applied to body hair in the direction in which the hair grows, then a strip of linen or paper is placed firmly on to the wax, and in a quick motion it is pulled in the opposite direction to hair growth.

Strip waxing (soft wax) is accomplished by spreading the wax thinly over the skin. The strip is then quickly ripped against the direction of hair growth, as parallel as possible to the skin to avoid trauma to the skin. This removes the wax along with the hair.

Waxing is a very effective way of removing hair from the root, leaving the skin soft and free of hair for weeks.
