Waxing is a form of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root.
Waxing completely removes the hair from the follicle; this leaves an active area of cells. Over a period of 4-6 weeks depending on the strength of the hair and new hair will grow. Over a period of time and regular waxing treatments the hair becomes weaker and will eventually stop growing. In some areas the hair growth is stronger than others and will therefore require longer periods of waxing treatments than others. The rate of re-growth varies amongst individuals.
Methods of hair removal such as shaving, cutting, abrasive gloves and depilatory creams only remove the hair from the surface of the skin so within a few days blunt re-growth is apparent-the hair grows back often thicker and more dense.
