Body waxing is excellent in a short time, economical, and carefully removing hair from most areas of the body. We offer at-home waxing for the chest, stomach, back, underarms, arms as well as legs, pubic, and butt areas.
Body waxing lasts longer than body hair trimming and shaving, which is the usual alternative. Whilst you will be reaching for the razor and trimmer again within a week, with waxing you can be hair free for as long as approx. six weeks.
Body waxing removes the hairs from the root. With shaving and trimming the hairs are cut off close to skin level. Even with a very close shave and trim, this still leaves a considerable amount of the hair just below the surface ready to appear in a week. This is really important to understand if you are considering whether waxing is better than shaving and trimming.
Body hair trim or shaving is a beauty chore. Booking certain a wax, especially within the comfort of your own home or preferred location, may be a chance to be looked after and cared for by a certified professional beautician, and an opportunity to take some time out of your busy day to do something to make you feel good and handsome. There could also be the quick sting of the strips of wax being removed, but the soothing warmth of hot wax, and therefore the professional touch of the beautician, are definitely pampering.
One of the major benefits, why people choose to wax over shaving, is wax removes hair from roots not cut them off which results in multiple health benefits like hair doesn’t grow back so quickly and finer regrowth like hair doesn’t grow back stubbly as they come back from the root.
Another major reason is hygiene waxing is not just helping out in removing hair also removing dust and polluted particles that were being removed in a healthy way.
Waxing is a fast process as it takes lesser time than another process like a laser treatment. Although it depends on Wax to like using Rica and Brazilian Wax takes lesser time than usual.
When you choose to Wax your Body over Shave it’s not just the time period of regrowth it’s also about the quality of hair regrowth you experience. The difference is after shaving the hair regrowth feels stubbly as hairs aren’t naturally blunt. Whereas in the case of wax the hairs are removed from roots, so the hair growth is fine.
Professionals suggest not to exfoliate your skin neither before nor after 2 days of waxing. The reason behind this logic is all the dead skin cells are removed while the process of waxing which results in smooth, clean, and fresh skin.

It's a Better Way to Book At your Place, Time and Location
Ans. There are many benefits to maintaining a regular hair removal cycle. Waxing regularly will cause the hair to grow back finer, thinner, and more sparse. We have three different hair growth cycles, please take into consideration that you may not be 100% smooth for your first wax. We recommend trusting us for at least 4 waxing services to experience the full benefits.
Ans. Have no fear, at The Wax and Skin Lounge double dipping is a no-no. Waxing sticks are dipped into sterilized wax, applied to client once and then discarded.
Ans. Our Aestheticians use a combination of both hard and soft waxes to create a personalized experience to better meet your hair removal needs. We use Hard Wax on the Bikini Area, Underarms, and Facial Waxing. Soft Wax is used for all other services. You can request hard wax for a service that’s usually done with soft wax for an additional fee.
Ans. On average 3-6 weeks.
Ans. Hair must be at least 1/4 inch. We recommend 3-4 weeks growth.
Ans. We won’t lie to you, waxing can be uncomfortable. Everyone’s pain tolerance is different, but you can expect a short, stinging like sensation after strips are pulled. We recommend taking an ibuprofen about 30 minutes before your appointment. (Please consult your physician before taking any medication)
Ans. We suggest 3-4 weeks hair growth for the body and 2 weeks growth for facial hair. For better results use a gentle exfoliant between waxing appointments.
Ans. The Wax & Skin Lounge prides itself on the cleanliness and sanitation procedures we have in place. Our Aestheticians wear gloves. There is a “No Double Dipping Policy.” This ensures our Aestheticians are using a clean wax stick for each application of wax during your service, creating the ultimate level of sanitation. After using any tools/equipment, our staff is required to clean and sanitize to ensure no chance of cross-contamination. A fresh medical paper covering is used on the table for each guest. The table is also sanitized and disinfected after every guest.
Ans. Yes, all of our estheticians are licensed in the State of Illinois and have a strong background in skincare education. We require our staff to go through ongoing training and continually stay on top of the latest techniques and products.
Ans. Appointments are usually scheduled every 4 weeks. If this is your first waxing experience you can reasonably expect your results to last between 3 and 6 weeks with minimal growth in the days and weeks following your appointment, depending on how quickly your particular hair grows. Hair regrowth patterns are cyclical and you will notice an improvement in regard to the longevity of your results as you become regular with your waxing services.
Ans. No, This is a complete myth. Waxing, in fact, is know to actually stop hair growth all together in some cases. It is important to keep in mind though that waxing should be used as a temporary hair removal method as the slowing or stopping of hair growth takes many years of consistent waxing.
Ans. If done properly, waxing can be a great benefit to people with sensitive skin. It is much more gentle on the skin than many other methods of hair removal, IE. shaving and at home depilatories. It is impossible to predict who will have a reaction to the wax or any product used. If you have sensitive skin it is very important to follow the instructions in the pre-waxing guide as well as the post-waxing guide.
