Remove hair instantaneously

In the world of hair removal, waxing and shaving are entirely different.

Wax swiftly pulls hair from the root through repetitive tugs. Shaving is more of a trim, only removing hair from the surface of the skin and leaving the root intact.

What is waxing?

Waxing involves a warm mixture that’s applied to the skin and removed quickly once it cools. There are two different types of wax: soft and hard wax.

Soft wax requires strips to remove and is made with rosin, oils, and other additives. The wax is applied, and the strip is placed on top to remove the hair against the direction of growth.

Hard waxes firm up on their own and are made from beeswax, resin, and oils. Unlike soft waxes, hard waxes remove hair without strips.

Benefits of waxing? 

There are a few benefits outside of aesthetic appearance to consider.

With waxing, there’s the added benefit of light exfoliation. Because the substance adheres to the top layer of skin, it can remove dead skin cells to reveal a softer underlying layer.

Is there anyone who shouldn’t do this?

Your skin might be more sensitive to waxing if you’re taking the following medications:

– antibiotics
– hormone replacement therapy
– hormonal birth control
– Accutane
– Retin-A or other retinol-based creams

If you think your skin might be too sensitive for waxing, shaving might be a better option.

How painful is it?

This definitely depends on your pain tolerance. However, because the hair is removed at the root, people tend to report more pain.


Waxing is a popular hair removal technique that uses wax to remove unwanted hair from the body. The wax is applied to the skin in the direction of hair growth and then quickly removed, along with the hair, in the opposite direction.

One of the key benefits of waxing is that it can provide long-lasting results. Unlike shaving, which only removes hair at the surface level, waxing removes the hair from the root. This means that the hair takes longer to grow back, and many people find that they can go several weeks between waxing sessions.

Waxing is typically performed by a professional in a salon or clinic setting, and it is safe for use on most areas of the body. The process can be slightly painful, but the discomfort is generally brief and most people find that it is manageable.

Overall, waxing is an effective and convenient way to remove unwanted hair from the body. If you’re interested in trying waxing for yourself, be sure to consult with a qualified professional who can help you determine the best approach for your individual needs.

As the hair is pulled from the roots, this reduces hair growth. It varies from person to person, but even though your hair will grow back less, it may not necessarily be thinner. You’ll just have less of it. 

Firstly, it depends on where you’re getting a wax done. If you’re getting an intimate wax done, then you will undoubtedly experience some pain, but even with this, some parts are less sensitive than others. Plus, the first time is the worst, so if you get it done every 3-6 weeks when the hair is waxable again, the pain lessens. You can read our blog post on tips to reduce the pain that you may experience from waxing. All in all, some areas of the body are more sensitive than others, and most importantly pain is subjective

Hot wax is for dealing with sensitive skin and thicker hair and will most likely be used for an intimate wax, whilst strip wax is for less sensitive skin and thinner hair and will most likely be used for areas such as the legs and arms. At Reimagine clinic we use both types of wax.

The simple, yet most effective way of calming down red skin is by moisturizing. Waxing removes the top layer of the epidermis revealing new, softer ones but simultaneously it strips away the skin’s natural oil and moisture. To restore the moisture and rejuvenate the skin, it is worth checking out some of these products that we recommend to complement your waxing experience.

It depends on how fast your hair is growing but on average we would recommend getting waxed every 4 weeks. This is usually the right amount of time to have the hair at the right length, and will also allow the skin to be less sensitive to treatments. For our female clients: we recommend avoiding treatment around that time of the month: your skin will be more sensitive 5 days before and after.

The ideal length for waxing is about 1/4 inch to 1/2 an inch (0.5 cm to 1.5 cm). If your hair is not long enough, our esthetician will let you know. If you decide to go ahead with the treatment, that’s not a problem at all. It is simply likely that we are not going to be able to get all the hair, as they’ll be too short to stick to the wax. 

Beware of the sun, as we advise that during the 24-hour window after a wax done to not go out into the sun. This is because the skin is more exposed and less protected. As for sunbeds, it’s usually advised that these are avoided for at least one week before and after your waxing appointment. The skin tends to contain heat from the UV light which can cause the skin to peel or lift. In turn, this can irritate the skin during or after the wax.

Meeting us actually covers 80% of this! It’s understandable that there will be a little embarrassment, especially for a first-timer as you may feel slightly uncomfortable being so exposed. Rest assured, our therapists have seen it all and, like a doctor or nurse, it’s their job. As part of the treatment, you are offered a pair of disposable panties which you can choose to wear or not. Just know that it’s of the norm and our esthetician won’t even bat an eyelid.

Resist the urge to pick up the razor! We strongly advise not shaving after having a wax done. Shaving promotes ingrown hairs and skin abrasions hence it counteracts all of the wonders that the wax does for your skin. Plus, shaving makes your skin more sensitive, which will only make your next wax more painful.
