Spring into Perfectly Smooth Skin with Body Waxing

What does spring mean for you? For most of us, it’s the promise of warm weather ahead – as well as all of the fun outdoor activities we’ll experience with family and friends. All that fun in the sun means it’s time to think about bikini weather, so now is the time to get started on your regular waxing routine so that you’ll have soft, super smooth skin by the time all those spring and summer events arrive!

Why waxing? Isn’t shaving good enough?

If you’re like most people, you’ve been shaving unwanted hair whenever it pops up – which is often. That’s one of the primary problems with shaving because it just doesn’t last very long.

There’s an important difference between waxing and shaving: with shaving, you’re cutting each hair at the surface, and with waxing it, you’re removing it completely from the root. That’s a crucial difference because there’s nothing to stop shaved hair from continuing to grow. It’s root deep in the follicle and is completely intact, so hair shaft cells continue to grow, pushing out the hair right away.

That means you’ll get stubble quickly, which not only feels rough to the touch but can also give you that itchy, uncomfortable feeling.

With waxing, the safe and effective wax material is applied to your skin warm, then removed as it cools. It completely grips the unwanted hairs, pulling them out by the root. That stops those unwanted hairs in their tracks because the next step in the growth process will be repairing damage to the follicles.

How long does waxing last?

Waxing is definitely the way to go for smooth skin this spring and summer because just one waxing appointment gives you silky smooth skin for as long as six weeks!

Why should I start waxing now? It’s too early for a bikini.

Now is exactly the right time to start waxing regularly. Waxing gets easier – and the results get even better – with time. Making regular waxing appointments of about once a month means that you’re consistently removing unwanted hair and upsetting the natural cycle of the follicles in that area.

Over time, you can expect hair to start growing thinner and lighter because they are growing from weakened follicles. That’s why it’s so important to keep up those appointments every month – even during the winter – so that when summer rolls around, you’ll have silky soft skin without the effort.

If you’ve never had a professional waxing before, starting in the spring is the perfect time because it gives you a few months of waxing appointments so that your results during the summer will be fantastic!

By contrast, if you keep shaving, unwanted hairs stay just as thick and unsightly, And you have to do it constantly because as soon as your skin feels smooth, you can start getting that ‘prickly’ feeling – in as soon as hours.

What areas are best for waxing?

Waxing is a safe and effective way to remove hair all over your body when done by a trained professional. The students here at Summit Salon Academy KC are fully trained in all waxing techniques and they’re supervised by licensed, experienced estheticians, so you can be sure that your skin is protected while removing unwanted hair.

  • Bikini area
  • Face (chin, upper lip, brows, etc.)
  • Chest
  • Stomach
  • Back

Are there additional benefits to waxing versus shaving?

In addition to effective, long-lasting results, waxing is a better way to remove unwanted hair because of these additional benefits:

  • Exfoliation. Removing hair with the wax also gives your skin a healthy exfoliating treatment, removing that top layer of dead skin and giving you extra-soft skin.
  • Irritation-free. Instead of razer burn (or itchy, uncomfortable rashes from cream and lotion-based hair removal products), waxing’s natural ingredients are hypoallergenic and won’t cause irritation. With your first waxing appointment you may experience some redness, but with regular appointments waxing becomes easier.
  • Precise. When removing hair in areas that need precision, waxing is the way to go. Waxing lets your Summit Salon Academy KC esthetician remove hair perfectly to sculpt perfect brows!
