Waxing Q & A

What is waxing?

Waxing is a well-established method of removing unwanted hair. Your practitioner at The Spa at Mount Dora spreads an application of special wax over the treatment area and lays strips over the surface of the wax, which then hardens. When your practitioner pulls the strips away, the unwanted hairs come out in the wax.

Waxing is an effective way to keep skin smooth and hair free for longer than shaving, and it’s been a popular method of dealing with unwanted hair for thousands of years.

Why would I want to consider waxing?

Waxing is an effective, easy way to remove unwanted hair. For many people, hair that grows where they don’t want it, or that’s too coarse, is a constant irritation, affecting their self-confidence in social situations and causing considerable distress. Both men and women have hair growth where they don’t want it, typically on the:

  • Legs
  • Upper lip
  • Chin
  • Cheeks
  • Back
  • Fingers
  • Feet
  • Toes
  • Bikini line

Excess hair growth can sometimes be due to hormonal influences; for example, women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) can suffer from excess hair growth. In other cases, medications may be to blame, or it’s simply a case of genetic influence.

Is waxing better than other methods of hair removal?

All methods of hair removal have their pros and cons. Shaving is quick and easy, but hair regrowth starts straight away, so you have to shave again within a few days. Using depilatory cream can be messy at times, and some people are sensitive to the active ingredients.

Epilating is a similar process to waxing, but instead of pulling hairs away in wax, the epilator device pulls them out mechanically. The main problem with epilating is that many people find it uncomfortable, even after using topical numbing cream or ice packs.

Waxing is very effective when carried out by an experienced professional like those on staff at The Spa at Mount Dora. In the comfortable, luxurious surroundings, you can relax and let your practitioner expertly apply the wax.

When it’s ready for removal, having someone who has the right skills makes a significant difference to the level of discomfort you feel. Your practitioner at The Spa at Mount Dora knows precisely how to remove the wax strips to minimize your discomfort, and if you’ve ever tried waxing at home, you’ll feel the difference when you receive a waxing session from a professional aesthetician.

In addition to waxing, The Spa at Mount Dora offers a permanent hair removal option using state-of-the-art Icon™ laser technology.
