Which Waxing Myths Have You Heard Before?

When a technician dons their spa uniform to begin welcoming clients for the day, they’re likely to run into a few common misconceptions people have about waxing. Let’s take a look at these three waxing myths and how to set clients’ minds at ease about them.

Waxing Myths #1: Waxing Is Really Painful

While waxing may not be the most comfortable and relaxing experience one can find at the spa, it’s not as bad as a lot of people think—especially if you’re equipped with good products and have a professional who knows what they’re doing. There are various creams, lotions, gels, and oils available to use before and after waxing to protect the skin and reduce discomfort, like this plant-based Cirepil wax gel or this pre-depilatory oil. Also, the more regularly someone gets waxed, the less painful it will be. This is because the skin gets more accustomed to the procedure. Cirepil wax products can help prep the skin for better-lasting results.

Waxing Myths #2: Hair Grows Back Thicker After Waxing

This myth prevents some women from choosing to wax for areas like the upper lip or chin. However, in reality, the opposite is true: hair tends to grow back thinner after waxing. With regular waxing, hair eventually grows in much finer, and some people even report that it stops growing entirely after some years. (Your mileage may vary on that one!) The origin of this myth is actually from shaving, where you’re essentially cutting the hair at its thickest point, giving it a coarser appearance as it re-grows. Waxing removes hair at the root instead, which is why it takes longer to grow back and comes up straight from the follicle. Refectocil lash tinting can help sparse eyebrows that have been over-plucked or waxed from the old fashion trends in the early 2000’s, where thinner was better.

Waxing Myths #3: Waxing Causes Wrinkles or Sagging

As we age, wrinkles or sagging often appear naturally around areas like the eyebrows and lips (which also happen to be common places for waxing). Fortunately, there’s no reason that waxing would accelerate this process. The main cause of skin losing elasticity is that body is simply producing less collagen than it used to. Plus, any good waxing technician knows to hold the skin taut while removing the wax so there’s very little stretching.
