Waxing is a quick, easy, and economical approach to get rid of unwanted body hair. However, there are so many different types of body wax that it can be difficult to know which one to apply on which portion of the body. Furthermore, if this is your first time waxing, hearing the salon jargon in Bugis or Tanjong Pagar at your first session can be intimidating. Aside from waxing services, there are other hair removal solutions that may be used at home for a quick fix. Is waxing, however, an effective and long-lasting method of hair removal?

Can I use hair removal wax if I have sensitive skin?
Waxing can be done on sensitive skin without any problems. The most important thing is to make sure that both the wax and the waxer are of good quality. If you had to choose one type of wax, chocolate wax is softer on sensitive skin and less likely to cause redness and itching. So, women with delicate or sensitive skin are told to use chocolate wax.
How can I get rid of the wax residue if I tried it at home?
Use a natural oil, alcohol, or petroleum jelly to remove wax residue from your skin. If you have dry skin or remove the strips off too slowly, you are more likely to have wax residue on your skin. To avoid wax residue, add powder to your skin before waxing.
What do I need to take care of after I tried New Beauty's IPL Hair Removal Treatment?
Apply a lot of moisturiser to the area where the hair removal was done. This makes the skin less red, which is a common side effect of laser hair removal. Don't rinse the area where the hair was removed with hot water. Do not wear clothes that are too tight because they put pressure on your skin and hair follicles. Also, don't shave the area where IPL Hair Removal was done for a week to keep the skin from getting hurt.
Should I clean the area with hair before the treatment?
Hair must be present in your follicles for laser hair removal to operate. Waxing completely removes the hair from the follicle. Laser treatment would be absolutely ineffective if you waxed and removed all of your hair. Before each treatment, excess hair on the skin's surface must be removed.
Is there anything bad that can happen from hair removal treatment?
It does not happen to most people but IPL/Laser can make hair grow back in hormonal areas like the chin, under the chin, sides of the face, neck, and breasts in some rare cases. After the first treatment, hair will grow less. IPL can also sometimes make hair grow faster, which is the opposite of what you would expect. It doesn't happen very often and is more likely to happen in people with hormonal problems like polycystic ovary syndrome.
