What Is the Best Wax to Use on Your Face?
April 28, 2021There's a lot to love about facial waxes. Facial wax services are one of the simplest ways of removing unwanted hairs without leaving marks or prompting an allergic reaction. While it's true that the face is one of the most sensitive areas, it takes little to no time to get used to the mild discomfort until the treatment is virtually painless. Hard body waxes have a lot to do with this, because they adhere to the hairs without forcing you to pull on the skin, so they are usually an esthetician's first choice when it comes to facial procedures. Let's take a closer look:
Waxing Facial HairIf you're familiar with wax treatments as a whole, then you'll recognize many of the steps involved in facial waxes. A facial wax takes less time than body wax services, but also requires a thoughtful technique to avoid injuries. The skin is thinner and more fragile, so you need a lot of precision and the best formulas to avoid unpleasant side effects. Our blog "Step by Step for Facial Waxing" provides a detailed description of all the intricacies that set apart facial services from other wax treatments. Before we dive into the best products to perform a facial wax, let's address some of people's most common questions:
Is waxing the best option for my face? This is a reasonable question that many first-time clients will ask. With so many hair removal options available, is the pain of a facial wax really worth it? Part of an esthetician's job is easing people's concerns while showcasing all the advantages of facial wax services. Regular waxes gradually weaken the follicles, so the hairs grow thinner and sparser. On top of being a long-term benefit that no other method can offer, this is also a great advantage for clients who worry about concealing their facial hair between wax sessions. Even from the first wax service, the skin will stay smooth and hair-free from 3 to 6 weeks.
Is It painful? First-timers will feel a certain degree of pain, it all depends on the person's overall pain tolerance. The good news is that you can be done with a facial wax in 10 minutes, so you don't have to worry about sitting through prolonged periods of discomfort. After people start a regular waxing regime, the pain will start to lessen with each new session. Despite all this, the face remains one of the most sensitive parts of the body, so the waxes used for the treatment will play a huge role in making the experience tolerable for the client. Because the skin on the upper lip and the arc of the eyebrow is very vulnerable, estheticians need to remove all the hairs after a single wax layer or they might end up breaking the skin.
Can a facial wax irritate the skin? This is a risk in all the areas where the skin is naturally thinner and is one of the main reasons why facial waxes should be left to professionals. The face is indeed prone to post-wax irritation, so seasoned estheticians will always keep an eye on the skin after applying a product/removing a layer of wax. They will also waste no time soothing the skin right after waxing. Post-wax treatments are essential to ease the irritation, heal the skin, and encourage the regeneration of cells. The waxed area might feel itchy for a few hours afterwards, so clients should refrain from scratching, avoid direct sun exposure, and apply natural soothing lotions until the irritation fades away for good.
The Best Waxes for your FaceIt's important to identify the best formulas to perform facial waxes, especially for clients that plan on starting a regular waxing regime. With hard body waxes, you can prevent excessive pulling and ensure an overall pleasant experience for the client. Because they involve small portions of skin on each application, facial waxes require minimal product waste so it's easier to work through the singularities of hard waxes without losing the optimal consistency.
