Waxing is a form of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for around four to six weeks. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, bikini waxing, legs, arms, back, abdomen and feet.
Waxing is an effective method to remove large amounts of hair at one time and is a long-lasting method. When hair is shaved or removed by depilatory cream, the hair can be seen at the surface within a few days and hair tends to grow back in a rough stubble. Areas that are repeatedly waxed over long periods of time often exhibit regrowth that is softer.
