Here’s Why Body Waxing Treatments Beat Shaving
For most adults, unwanted hair growth is a lifelong personal grooming issue that generally boils down to single simple yet deceptively tough question: wax or shave?
It's a question that goes back untold generations. Shaving dates back longer than recorded human history, while the first waxing concepts were applied back when ancient Rome was a budding empire. And in most cases, the most recent technology wins.
While quadruple blade safety razors have gone a long way towards making shaving a gentler process, when it comes to body hair removal, waxing proves consistently better.
Here’s why body waxing treatments beat shaving...
The first reason should be convincing enough to most — waxing just works better. At best, the world's closest shave can only remove the part of the hair growing outside the skin. Depending on how quickly your hair grows, you might experience prickly stubble within days or even hours of a shave. Basically, apply the concept of a five o'clock shadow to the rest of your body — no thanks! Conversely, a wax strip rips out hair by the roots, meaning there's not even hair left beneath the skin's surface to create stubble, leaving nothing but smooth, touchable skin.
Yes, it's true that pulling out hair by the roots can be a more painful process than shaving. However, that brief moment of pain results in an extended period of stubble-free skin. While the hair will start growing back almost immediately, it would reach the skin's surface for at least a couple weeks.
Every day shavers take it for granted that nicks and cuts are the price you pay for beauty. But waxers know better. It doesn't matter how hard to reach a hair follicle is — if you're not using a blade to cut it, you won't knick your skin. No unsightly cuts means no potential scarring.
No razor burn
For many, scraping a blade across sensitive skin — and let's face it, most unwanted hair grows in sensitive places — irritates and inflames the skin. Not exactly what you're going for when you want to be smooth and touchable. While it's true that waxing may similarly irritate hair follicles for some people, waxing regularly mitigates this issue, as can proper preparation by a grooming professional.
May slow growth and thin hairs
Another benefit of maintaining a regular waxing regimen (every four weeks on average) is that, over time, waxing may slow hair growth. For some, the hairs have also been known to grow back thinner and finer. In essence, routine body waxing becomes easier and more effective the longer you do it.
