The Science of Waxing


Understanding Hair Growth Cycles

The secret to maximizing your waxing benefits starts with a good grasp of how hair grows. Unlike other hair removal methods, waxing pulls hair from the root, affecting the hair in its growth cycles. Hair grows in three main stages: anagen, catagen, and telogen. Consistent waxing can, over time, cause your hair to grow back weaker, slower, and finer, as it targets hair follicles during these varied stages.

The Benefits of Targeting Hair at the Root

When waxing removes hair directly from the root, it ensures a smoother result for a longer amount of time compared to shaving, which merely cuts the hair at the skin’s surface. Removing hair from the root also means you’re directly affecting the hair follicles, potentially leading to less hair growth over time and fewer worries about unsightly stubble just days after hair removal.

Say Goodbye to Ingrown Hairs

Ingrown hairs occur when hair grows back into the skin instead of up and out. Unlike shaving, which can often cause ingrown hairs due to the blunt tips of hair that can grow sideways or curl back, consistent waxing can reduce their occurrence significantly. The type of wax used and the expertise of your Vagician can also make a world of difference in preventing these pesky problems.

So, How Long Does Waxing Last?

Back to the burning question: how long does waxing last? Generally, your silky-smooth results will last from three to six weeks. While some might start noticing regrowth as soon as three weeks, others may see results lasts for up to six weeks. To maintain your newfound smoothness, we usually recommend sticking to a waxing schedule of every 3 – 5 weeks. This rhythm ensures optimal results, making each session quicker and easier.

Brazilian Waxes: The Ultimate Smooth

Brazilian waxes are among the most popular options for those seeking a completely hair-free look and feel. Offering a thorough removal of hair in the bikini area, Brazilian waxes can transform your hair removal routine, leaving skin silky smooth for weeks. By consistent waxing appointments, especially for areas as sensitive as this, you ensure less hair growth and smoother results every time.

How long does a Brazilian wax last?

Typically, a Brazilian wax can last between 3 to 6 weeks depending on your hair growth cycle. Regular sessions can help extend the duration of smoothness as the hair tends to grow back finer and sparser.

The Art of Leg Waxing

Leg waxing is another fan favourite for long-lasting smoothness over extensive areas of the body. The right type of wax can gently yet effectively remove legs’ hair, leaving your skin feeling luxuriously soft and hair-free for weeks. Plus, over time, consistent waxing appointments can lead to finer and less dense hair growth, making each session easier and quicker.

How long does leg waxing last?

The results of leg waxing can typically last about 4 to 6 weeks. Much like Brazilian waxing, the more frequently you schedule waxing appointments, the finer and sparser the hair will grow back, potentially increasing the duration between sessions.

But that’s just the beginning! At Foxy Box, our skilled Vagicians are experts in crafting the perfect smooth for every part of your body. From the gentle curves of your face to the delicate skin of your underarms, and even those tricky spots like the nose and ears, we’ve got you covered. Our wide array of waxing services ensures there’s something for everyone.

Waxing vs. Laser


Exploring Hair Removal Options: Waxing vs. Laser

While waxing stands out for its effectiveness in removing hair from the root and slowing down hair growth over time, laser hair removal offers a more permanent solution by targeting hair follicles with light energy. Both are viable hair removal options depending on your needs, preferences, and the areas of the body you’re looking to treat. We recommend considering factors like the amount of time you’re willing to commit and your hair type when choosing between waxing and laser treatments.
