Do You Need a Wax Warmer for Wax Beans?
January 24, 2022Wax beans are the most common format for wax products, and a permanent element in a salon or spa. The basic technique involves melting the beans and spreading the resulting mixture on the skin to remove all the hairs in the area. You may hear of people using a microwave to do this, but most estheticians agree that a Hard Wax Warmer is the surest way to get the perfect consistency to remove all the hairs in one shot. Today, we'll explain what exactly is a hard wax warmer and how it helps simplify a professional wax service, but first, let's start with the basics.
What Are Hard Wax Beans?Hard wax beans are usually made by combining pine tree resin and a certain concentration of vitamins and natural properties. They represent a simple way to remove body hairs in areas that are usually difficult to deal with, either because the skin is sensitive or because of the precision required to avoid mistakes.
Wax beans have remained a favorite among salon-goers because they greatly minimize the pain of wax treatments. Their creamy composition adheres to the hair almost effortlessly after heating at a temperature that's not only bearable but pleasant to the touch. Also, they don't get stuck to the skin, so ripping off the wax causes much less pain overall.
When heated at the right temperature and during the specified amount of time, the wax beans will spread easily on the skin, and the esthetician will have little trouble making sure the wax layer is even on all sides. Moreover, the right wax consistency will not leave a sticky residue, so the skin fresh by the end of the treatment and there's less mess to deal with.
As you can see, the wax beans need to be melted to work on the skin, there's no way around it. Once you choose the waxes you will use for your services, you need to put as much consideration on the equipment that's meant to heat the wax. Do you need a wax warmer for wax beans? If so, what makes it different from using a regular warmer or your home's microwave?
Why Do You Need a Wax Warmer?A wax warmer serves to makes waxing as a whole simpler and quicker. It's not impossible to melt the wax properly in a microwave but it may take a lot of trial and error. This means more time wasted and the loss of at least some of the wax. More importantly, a wax warmer helps you avoid hurting your client. When using regular heaters, you risk making the wax too hot, or you could end up making it harder to remove the wax from the skin painlessly.
Wax warmers are not hard to operate, as they are made specifically to increase workability during hair removal services. All you need is enough space to set your equipment and an electric outlet. After turning on the heater, a light will stay on while the thermostat works on the wax. You'll be able to manually control the heat from highest to moderate (remember to stick to the instructions on the label), so that you can regulate the temperature after the wax has reached the right consistency.
