woman getting wax epilationWith summer right around the corner, it’s time to get ready for swimsuit season! For a fresh and smooth look that can recapture your confidence, consider waxing. Get rid of unwanted hair quickly, using melted wax and removal strips.

At Catherine & Company, we offer complete body waxing services, including the face, underarms, legs and bikini area for women, as well as the back, chest, arms, legs and eyebrows for men. Unsure about tossing the razor? Here are a few benefits of switching to waxing.

1. Reduced Regrowth Rate

Tired of having to shave several times a week? Wax can help reduce your hair’s growth rate. When waxing an area, you pull each hair from the root. The more often you do this, the more damage you cause to the bulb and the hair grows back slower, finer and softer.

Another benefit of pulling hair directly from the root is the prevention of ingrown hairs. An ingrown hair occurs when a shaved or tweezed hair ends up growing back into the skin, which can be very painful. By waxing the area instead, you take the hair away entirely.

2. It’s Good For Your Skin

Although the act of waxing may sting at first, it can be worth it in the long run. Waxing not only removes hair but the top layer of skin. Getting rid of this often dry layer can exfoliate your skin, leaving it feeling softer and smoother.

Waxing does not leave your skin feeling irritated and itchy like shaving can. Using a razor may leave your hair follicles inflamed and make you feel uncomfortable.

3. Less Time than Shaving

Shaving can be a hassle. Each time, you have to worry about razor bumps or a dull blade nicking your skin. On top of this, results only last a few days. With waxing, you can expect results to last between 3 and 4 weeks!
