What is Waxing?

It is quite a simple process where an applicator is used to apply the wax to the skin in the direction of the hair growth, then a strip of fabric is applied on top and smoothed down in the same direction as the hair growth. The final step involves pulling the muslin strip off the skin in the opposite direction of the hair growth. The result is smooth skin without visible hair on the surface but the follicle remains intact in the dermis layer of the skin. Waxing typically leaves the skin smooth for several weeks.

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser Hair Removal involves a laser emitting a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat which damages the hair follicles that produce hairs. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth. Safe Laser Hair Removal requires a well-trained laser operator. At Refine Skin & Body Clinic, we offer a range of permanent hair reduction solutions which allow us to customize our treatments to individual needs. Once the desired ‘hair free’ effects are achieved, maintenance sessions once or twice per year are advisable to sustain the results.

Waxing’s major advantage is being less costly for a single session but its cons come in big numbers as explained below.

· Eventual Cost: If you get wax treatments regularly, it ends up being more costly.

· Pain: Waxing can be very painful. It can be especially painful in sensitive areas of the body, such as the ears, bikini line & underarms.

· Ingrown hairs nightmare: Waxing can cause ingrown hairs because does not destroy the root of the hair but simply pulls the hair from the follicle. The hair will grow back, and when it does, it could become ingrown.

· Skin irritation: More often than not, the skin irritation from waxing leads to bumps, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation etc.

· Time: Waxing can be time consuming. For the best results, you need to wax the same area every few weeks.

· Considerable skin damage: Waxing can cause damage to the skin, especially sensitive skin.
