It’s the beginning of the new decade, time to move forward with a new focus on health and beauty. Smooth, beautiful skin begins by safely and effectively removing unwanted hair, then treating your skin to luxurious treatments that keep it clean, exfoliated, and feeling fresh.
We all have unwanted hair and getting it under control can be a struggle. If you’ve tried shaving, creams, gels, or one-by-one plucking, you know that there are downsides to all of them. Shaving takes a long time and doesn’t last long – there’s always stubble trouble as early as the next day. Creams and gels aren’t very effective, and some of them can irritate your skin. One-by-one plucking works, but it’s painful, slow, and tedious, and doesn’t work for unwanted body hair. However, waxing can get the job done effectively while actually helping your skin get healthier!
- Long-lasting. While shaving cuts hair at the skin’s surface, so it can quickly regrow. Waxing actually removes hair follicles for a longer-lasting result. Before hair can be regrown, the follicle has to regrow, so your skin stays silky smooth much longer. In fact, follicles become weaker with regular treatments, so you’ll see finer, sparser hair in areas treated with wax over time.
- An exfoliation system. Waxing coats the surface of the skin while grasping each hair for removal. When removed, the wax also removes dead skin cells on the surface that can make your skin look dull and may even clog pores. This is the exfoliating effect, and it does more than clean up the skin’s surface. It also helps stimulate collagen production and skin cell renewal, a necessary process that helps your skin stay smooth, elastic, and younger-looking.
- Hypoallergenic. Creams, lotions, or gels can contain harsh ingredients that irritate the skin, and with shaving, you run the risk of unsightly cuts and scratches. Our professionals at The Studio Hair Salon & Day Spa use only the best professional-grade, natural, safe waxing products that won’t irritate your skin.
- Less irritating. Ever notice that itchy, prickly feeling you get after shaving? You get that feeling because the hair regrows at the angle it has been cut by the razor. Because waxing removes the hair at the root, its regrowth is less itchy and irritating, and over time that sensation can even disappear as fewer, finer hairs grow back. Professional waxing technicians are experienced at removing hair quickly, which results in less chance of ingrown hairs – which can develop into unsightly, painful bumps – than other hair removal methods.
As a plus, regular waxing appointments give you a little “me time,” a chance to de-stress from all the hassle of work and family obligations and just enjoy some time for yourself. You can even extend your de-stress time with additional treatments like a facial or a massage that will also help you unwind after your hectic day.
We provide waxing services for your entire body, including legs, arms, underarms, chest, back, and even that sensitive bikini area that you’ll want smooth and silky for this summer’s fun in the sun! The sooner you get started with a waxing schedule, the smoother your skin will be by the time you pack up your winter wardrobe and break out that bikini.
Once you’re on a schedule for regular body hair removal, you’ll also want some special treatments that take care of your skin all over. That’s where body scrubs come into play. Body scrubs use sugar or salt in coarse granules to exfoliate your skin and leave it soft, smooth, moisturized, and refreshed.
Body scrubs are the ultimate exfoliator for your skin. As we age, collagen production and cell renewal processes start to slow down, which can eventually lead to sagging and fine lines or wrinkles. This aging process begins as early as your 20s, so it’s never too early to fight aging. The salt or sugar in body scrubs makes the perfect exfoliating material to gently remove dead skin cells and pollutants while kick-starting collagen production and cell renewal.
Our professional estheticians will help you decide whether a sugar scrub or salt scrub is best for your needs. Generally, salt scrubs are more abrasive and exfoliate more vigorously, while sugar scrubs are gentler and can even be used on the face. Salt scrubs also contain vital minerals that can help nourish and soften your skin.
