BODY WAXING, FACIAL WAXING
Unwanted hair removal has been a desired service of women and men for thousands of years.
The reaction for every person to the actual service is going to be a little different. In summary the pain of having hair pulled out is relative to the area being treated, the product being used and the technician doing the work.
Mr. Henry has been doing this work for a wide variety of women and men from different lifestyles and different parts of the country. He has personally experienced the service performed on all the areas to which he conducts the hair removal service for other people. He performs this service with care toward being as painless as can be, even to the point of using skin numbing products to help dull the sensation.
Removing unwanted hair is a desire that people have been doing since earliest times in recorded history.
Personal hygiene has always been a reason for unwanted hair removal in those areas where daily cleanliness is of utmost importance. Having no hair there makes cleanup easy and effective. Having no hair there reduces the odor of daily and monthly bodily functions.
Personal appearance is an important reason for many people to remove unwanted hair. Having clean smooth skin is most attractive to the on-looker as well as the person that wears it. Many people would not go to public beaches and other such places where clothing coverage is minimal unless they feel presentable and comfortable.
Many people like the feel of certain fabrics on clean smooth hair-free skin.
It is known that during intimacy smooth hair-free skin is pleasurable.
The various methods of hair removal include shaving-(using a razor blade, electric shaver or electric clippers/trimmers), tweezing, cream depilatories, mechanical epilators that either pull the hair out a few at a time or rub the hair off with abrasives, laser light that attempts to damage the root so as to discourage regrowth, electrolysis that attempts to kill the root via electrocution, and waxing or sugaring which attempts to pull the hair out by means of a substance which sticks to the hair, and threading, which is a method developed in India thousands of years ago, uses twisted strands of thread to grab and remove hair.
Mr. Henry is a skilled professional in unwanted hair removal, using the safest and most up-to-date practices to ensure that clients leave feeling handsome and beautiful each time. Removal methods include electric clippers and trimmers, tweezing and waxing. While each of these practices could be done at home, Mr. Henry is highly-trained to ensure the health of the skin — and a perfect procedure — every time.
Electric clippers and trimmers:
For a quick, cost-efficient hair removal, Mr. Henry recommends an electric clipper or trimmer treatment. The client experiences no pain during the process. Hair regrowth is 100 percent, and does start immediately, which makes clipper or trimmer treatments perfect for a temporary cut or trying out a new style.
Tweezers and tweezing:
Tweezing is the perfect way to select and remove individual hairs to better sculpt an area of hair, such as an eyebrow. Tweezing may be one of the slowest ways to remove hair, but offers precision and a low-level of irritation to the skin.
While most people in the Moses Lake area may have a set of tweezers in the home, Mr. Henry uses only the highest-quality tools, which get the job done better and with most precise results. Often, people tweezing their own eyebrows will have difficulty seeing what they’re doing, and could end up damaging the skin or eyebrow line. Instead, let a professional take care of it, giving you a perfect brow every time.
Waxing — hard wax, honey wax and cream wax:
Waxing is one of the quickest ways to remove large amounts of hair, just second to shaving. It is also one of the most permanent methods; when performed by a professional on a regularly scheduled basis, 50 percent to 90 percent of the hair doesn’t return. Mr. Henry’s three methods of waxing reduce the number of hairs in the area, which grow back lighter in color and easier to remove as well.
While wax treatments can be done at home, the process can often damage the skin or hair follicles. Instead, visit a professional such as Mr. Henry to complete hard, honey or cream waxes.
- Hard waxes
A hard wax adheres to course, wiry hair other products cannot stick to. They often work well in hard-to-reach places, such as ear hair, nose hair or the bikini-area.
- Honey waxes
Honey waxes are similar to hard waxes, and can adhere to thicker or more course hair for an over-all job well done.
- Cream waxes
Cream waxes are to provide the skin with increased protection through the use of essential oils and other topical products like Aloe Vera and Zinc Oxide. These protect the skin from various stresses and trauma. All waxes are warmer than skin temperature, which helps to open the hair follicle, making it easier to remove.
While waxing can cause slight pain or irritation, such as bumping of treated area or redness or the skin, this generally decreases greatly after the first treatment. A numbing agent, usually a topical Lidocain rub, is available to desensitize the area as well.
Every now and then, a spot of blood may appear when an actively growing hair root is pulled. However, Mr. Henry’s procedure is sanitary and healthy, and any potential blood is immediately cleaned up.
Mr. Henry recommends most clients return every four to six weeks to repeat the process, and keep the area beautiful and free of hair!
Length of hair prior to waxing:
Hair to be waxed needs to be at least ¼ inch long. That is usually about two weeks of growth. Shorter hair is able to be pulled but not all kinds of short hair and not every time. The type of wax used makes a big difference in the hair being pulled or being missed.
Often times the wax used will pull most of the hairs but not all of the hairs. This is usually because some hair is deeper rooted, or growing at an angle opposite the other hair in that area, or is lying underneath other hair and fails to get wax on it. Or the wax used is not the type that adheres well to those hairs.
Another reason hair does not get pulled is that the hair is visible but not accessible. In other words the hair has emerged from the follicle but is lying underneath the top layer of skin known as the epidermis/stratum corneum. The transparent layer of keratin rich cells lay atop the newly grown hair emerging from the follicle. A good quality defoliant and applicator is useful to scrub away or exfoliate the dead skin cells. This practice performed at home helps to expose the hairs trapped beneath the skin.
A prudent waxing client will have the defoliating products at home and exfoliate regularly while bathing.
Exfoliating helps to prevent ingrown hairs and consequent irritation and infection.
Common astringent is another important product to use regularly on skin that has had hair removed. This tightens and tones the skin/pores. It controls and eliminates bacteria and other micro-organisms.
