waxing treatments

Hot wax and warm wax both remove the hair from the root, but there are differences in how they are applied, the results they provide and the types of hair. Find out below what those differences are and how you can benefit from the right choice of wax for you.

warm wax
application
With warm wax, the wax is spread over the area and a paper strip is pressed over it. This allows the wax to adhere firmly to the hair. Lastly, the paper strips are pulled off, removing the hairs in that area from the root.
areas
Because it is applied and removed straight away, the warm wax can be used quickly and efficiently over large areas such as the legs, arms, etc.
hair types
Warm wax is spread over the hair adhering both to the hairs and skin, so often this method of waxing will wax off the very top layer of the skin too. It provides an exfoliating effect to the skin along with the extra smooth results due to hair removal.
hot wax
application
Warmed to a slightly higher temperature, hot wax is a much thicker wax made up of plastics that allows it to set hard. It is applied to the skin, allowed to cool and set, and then pulled off directly without the use of a paper strip.
areas
As it takes a moment for hot wax to cool and set, this kind of wax is usually used over smaller areas for efficient hair removal. Areas on the face like the upper lip as well as the pubic area are most commonly treated with hot wax.
hair types
Because hot wax sets around each of the hairs, it makes for a better grip and removal of thicker hairs that may be too stubborn to remove by warm wax. Hairs on the pubic area and underarms which grow thicker than other body hair are best removed with hot wax for a cleaner and smoother result. The hot wax is also more effective at removing shorter hairs for the same reason of being able to adhere to the hair more for a better grip.
The benefits of having wax treatments
Shaving vs. Waxing: What’s Better for Your Skin?

Shaving rash is the inflammation on the skin caused by irritation. If you’re prone to shaving rashes, then hot wax is best for your skin. With shaving, you’ll be exposing the area to friction every few days, which only makes inflammation worse. With waxing, you can avoid this for over a month at a time giving your skin a chance to calm down.

The best-known benefit of waxing is that the hair doesn’t grow back very quickly. Waxing removes the hair from the root. With shaving, the hairs are cut off close to skin level. Even with a very close shave, there still remains a considerable amount of the hair just below the surface ready to grow back in a day or two. This is really important to understand if you are considering whether waxing is better than shaving.
