Eyebrow Wax

What is waxing?

A Trust Beauty Bar trained specialist will begin by heating up the wax. Then using a knife or spatula, will start to spread it across the desired area for removal. The specialist then lays a fabric strip on top of the wax and presses it down. At this point, the wax sticks to the hairs and is ripped away from the follicles in the opposite direction to hair growth. This pulling motion removes the hair directly from the root, thereby delaying regrowth. And voila – it’s that simple! At Trust Beauty Bar we currently offer facial waxing only which includes the upper lip, chin, and eyebrows.

Does waxing hurt?

Everyone’s pain threshold is different so some may find that they are more sensitive to waxing than others, but a mild stinging sensation during the treatment is totally normal. The face is a lot more sensitive than the rest of the body, so a bit of discomfort is to be expected. You should also be aware that your pain tolerance is lower around the time of your period and during pregnancy. In this case, it may be best to book your treatment around this.

Before your wax treatment:

If you’ve plucked or shaved the area before your treatment, you’ll need to allow for enough growth for the waxing to work effectively. Experts suggest a hair length of between ¼ inch to a ½ inch for best results.It’s also advised that you stop using any acid products or skin peels around 3 to 4 days before your waxing appointment. This will help to prevent post-waxing skin irritation. With waxing treatments, the softer the skin, the better the result. For this reason, experts recommend that facial waxing clients moisturise well the night before. Generally, it’s preferred that your face is as free of cuts and blemishes as possible, but experts advise clients not to over exfoliate. This could aggravate the skin, actually making it more sensitive to a waxing treatment. Instead, just make sure you’re cleansing your skin properly in the build up to your appointment.

The day of your wax treatment:

Avoid exposure to the Sun or sunbeds since this will increase skin sensitivity. You should cleanse as normal in the morning but avoid applying any creams and wearing makeup over the area you are having waxed.
