We Offer Body Waxing Services in Guelph

Looking for a simple method for hair removal? Try body waxing from Guelph’s Bare Skin Body Works. Waxing is a method of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root. The effects last for between 2-6 weeks – depending on the individual’s rate of hair growth, the time of year and how long you have been having the area waxed. We also offer a paraffin waxing method that has other benefits as well. Contact us today to book your waxing appointment.

Warm wax is applied to the skin in a thin layer. The hair becomes embedded in the wax and a strip is applied and then pulled off quickly, in the opposite direction of the hair growth, taking the hair with it.

Pre-Treatment Advice

  • Regular exfoliation prevents ingrown hairs and keeps skin looking healthy.
  • Regular waxing helps the skin get accustomed to the procedure and may minimise irritation.
  • Ideally hair should be between 1/4 inch and 1/2 inch in order for the wax to be able to remove them effectively.

Post-Treatment Advice

  • Avoid heat treatments for at least 24 hours following waxing.
  • Avoid the sun immediately after waxing.
  • Do not use exfoliating products and loofahs for at least 24 hours after waxing as they may further irritate your skin.
  • Avoid tight clothing after waxing as it may result in irritation and ingrown hairs.

Paraffin Wax Treatment

1.

What Is Paraffin Treatment?

A paraffin treatment uses warm oil-based wax to provide pain relief to hands, feet and sore joints and muscles. This treatment has skin-softening benefits as well. You can do a warm paraffin treatment at home with a small appliance and special paraffin designed for this purpose, or you can have it done at a spa or salon.

2.

Benefits

A paraffin treatment soothes chronic joint pain and relaxes stiff muscles, and improves blood flow to the treated area, as noted by Therabath, a manufacturer of paraffin treatment products. It increases range of motion for people with arthritis, bursitis and other chronic conditions that cause pain and stiffness. Paraffin treatments also smooth and soften dry, chapped, rough and scaly skin. It can be helpful for chronic skin disorders such as eczema and psoriasis.

3.

how it works?

Paraffin treatment is a form of deep heat therapy. Liquified paraffin wax is very efficient at absorbing and retaining heat. When you dip your hand or foot, for example, into the paraffin bath, heat transfers from the wax into the affected area as the wax solidifies. The heat increases circulation and relieves pain and stiffness. To aid in skin softening, paraffin increases blood supply to the skin, while also opening pores and trapping moisture from underlying layers of skin.
