Waxing is not the best DIY hobby, and at-home waxing kits may be more trouble than they’re worth. Sometimes, the convenience of a do-it-yourself waxing kit may lead to irritated skin, patchy results, and additional pain. So whether you are considering a Brazilian, or waxing other areas, consider visiting a spa for clearer skin and better results.
Here are 5 Reasons why you should trust a professional esthetician for your hair removal needs:
1. No broken hairs
When you use an at-home waxing kit, you will likely “break” your hairs instead of removing them. Broken hairs can lead to ingrown hairs, irritation, and poor results. This means that your hairs may grow back in different lengths, which will make waxing more difficult next time.
2. Safer, cleaner…just better.
A professional esthetician in a salon or spa knows what they are doing. And even more so, they know how important it is to keep a space clean and safe for waxing. When you wax, your pores open up, which can invite infection if you do not properly sanitize your space. Waxing at home can make it difficult to be clean and safe.
3. Save money in the long run.
At home waxing kits aren’t cheap, they’re messy and difficult to re-use, and the result will not be the same as if you went to a salon. Because of this, you will likely have to repeat at-home waxing more frequently, resulting in lost money in the long run.
4. Avoid shaving in between after a mistake
If you wax at home and have broken hairs, you may think to shave before you wax again. Shaving purposefully breaks your hairs and can lead to similar problems of ingrown hairs and poor results. If you shave after a bad wax, you will make it harder to wax all of the hairs next time.
5. Less irritation and ingrown hairs
Waxing may always cause redness, but it should not always cause irritation. If you are waxing with an at-home kit, it is not likely that you are able to remove the hairs in a way that a professional esthetician would. They are trained to remove hairs in a way that results in less irritation and gives you clearer skin faster.
