Waxing Hair Removal from Adam and Eve Med Spa in Scottsdale Arizona is a method of semi-permanent hair removal. New hairs will not grow back in the previously waxed area for two to eight weeks. Waxing can be used on any area of the body, including eyebrows, face, bikini area, legs, arms, back, abdomen and feet. There are many types of waxing suitable for removing unwanted hair. If waxing is done regularly for several years, permanent hair reduction may be achieved.
Waxing is accomplished by spreading a wax combination thinly over the skin. A cloth or paper strip is then pressed on the top and pulled off with a quick movement against the direction of hair growth. This removes the wax along with the hair. Another method utilizes hard wax (as opposed to strip wax). In this case, the wax is applied somewhat thickly and with no cloth or paper strips. The wax then hardens when it cools, thus allowing the easy removal by a therapist without the aid of cloths. This waxing method is very beneficial to people who have sensitive skin.
Be sure to apply all recommended products before and after waxing to prevent ingrown hair, exfoliate waxed area at least once a week. One week prior to waxing do not tan, exfoliate or irritate skin. Remember, if you are using medications such as Accutane or Retin waxing can not be performed.
We suggest you wax every 4-6 weeks, depending on your hair growth. Often waxing will weaken your hair follicles making the whole waxing process a lot easier and less painful after each visit.
We all have different levels of pain tolerance. If you wish you can apply numbing cream 30-45 minutes prior to the waxing. Also the length of the hair is very important: very long hair can break during waxing making it less effective and it can clump up making it more difficult to remove. Optimal hair length is 1/4 inch.
If you have barely-there brows, eyebrow tinting can help frame your eyes beautifully. This semi-permanent cosmetic procedure is a very attractive option if you’re tired of using an eye pencil or have noticed a few grays popping up in your brow line. Eyebrow tinting works well and it’s perfect if you’re looking for a way to streamline your beauty routine. Our expert aestheticians will protect your eyes with an eye patch or mask and apply petroleum jelly or another lubricant to the skin around the brows to help protect them. Then, they will use a cotton applicator dipped in dye to apply the color solution to the eyebrows, eyelashes or both. After the solution dries, the aesthetician will wash away excess dye with soap and water.
