The process of waxing and its benefits

Waxing is one of the most requested services at Cher-Mere spas on a daily basis, so it's only natural that we dedicate a blog to highlight the process of waxing and its benefits.

Waxing is the process of removing hair from the root, by using a covering of a sticky substance, such as wax, to adhere to body hair, before peeling it off and pulling out the hair from the follicle.   It usually takes about four to six weeks for any new hair to grow in the previously waxed area, although some people may start to see regrowth in just a week, due to some of their hair being on a different human hair growth cycle.  At Cher-Mere, we use both strip and hard waxes in our services.

Waxing has many benefits, some of which are as follows:

It is effective to remove large amounts of hair at one time; and 

It is long-lasting, as hair will not grow back for two to eight weeks, because the hair is removed from the root instead of the just the surface.

There are also some drawbacks:

It can be painful when the strip is removed from the skin

It can be expensive, because of the frequency with which it must be done; and

Some people experience ingrown hairs, red bumps and minor bleeding.

Now that you know the process, benefits and drawbacks of waxing, do call any Cher-Mere spa at 285-9053 to make an appointment.  Walk-ins are also facilitated once space is available.
