What is Brazilian Waxing?
Brazilian Waxing has been around for many years and is a method that many therapists claim to specialize in although unfortunately have not mastered – this can cause unnecessary pain, broken hairs and an inefficient and time consuming service. Brazilian Waxing is a complex method of waxing and requires adjustment to the process to suit each and every client’s body and hair type. Wax Lounge has mastered the technique.

What are the different types of waxes used?
Having worked with many different products over the years, at Wax Lounge we make sure we use the finest wax available.
The 2 types of wax used are known as hot wax and stript wax. Depending on the area of the body that you are waxing, one will be more appropriate than the other.
Hot waxes are made from natural beeswax and a resin. The hot wax is applied to the skin and is left to cool and has a rich creamy consistency.
Strip waxing is the more common type of wax used for larger areas. Strip wax is applied to the skin; a cloth is then pressed into the solution and then pulled sharply back against the direction of the hair growth. The hairs are then removed with the cloth as they have bonded with the wax. Strip waxes are made from ingredients such as resin, paraffin, glucose syrup and honey.
Why should I wax instead of shave?
When hair is shaved, within a few days, the hair can be seen at the surface of the skin. Shaving commonly results in ingrown hairs, bumps and ongoing skin irritation. When waxed, hair grows back slower, softer and without stubble. Waxing will, over time, make hair growth finer, and hair will become less in volume.
What happens if I shave between waxing?
Shaving is not a good idea for many reasons including the possibility of ingrown hair and irritation to the skin. Shaving strengthens the hair follicle creating coarser and thicker hair, while waxing weakens the follicle for less hair as you wax along the way. If you shave between waxing, you will completely reverse the healthy progress you have had with waxing.

What are the benefits of waxing vs. laser hair removal?
Laser can also easily burn those with darker skin because the laser targets the darker pigment of the hair (or dark color).
When it comes to all natural, safe and affordable hair removal, Wax Lounge is the smartest option as our wax and technique works with every type of skin (even the most sensitive) and any type of hair. Waxing with us also reduces the amount, color and thickness of your hair overtime. Our prices are also very affordable to everyone.
We have treated many clients who have spent considerable money on laser services and will not return to laser as they have not achieved the desired results. In some instances clients have had to commence shaving their facial hair to make the laser treatment more effective only to leave them with permanent changes to their facial hair type.
There are a number of benefits to wax treatments, such as:
- Waxing lasts quite a long time for such a quick treatment. Expect the new hair growth to take between 3 to 6 weeks to develop.
- New hair growth will become thinner, softer and lighter as the follicle becomes weaker with prolonged treatment.
It is fast compared to some other hair removal methods.
- It is suitable for all types of hairs.
- The skin is also exfoliated when the hairs are removed, leaving a fresh glow to the skin.
Why do I need to fill out a questionnaire before a waxing?
