Waxing Vs. Shaving Which Is Better?


Well, maybe it is time to wax with us! These benefits of waxing over shaving will give you an overview of why many of our clients converted to waxing as a method of hair removal.

Improved skin texture. In addition to removing excess, unwanted hair, waxing also removes the top layer of dry, dead skin cells. The result is skin that is far more smooth and even, something that cannot be achieved through hair removal creams or shaving. Some waxes even contain aloe or butter in order to moisturize the skin and further improve its tone and texture.


No skin irritation or allergies. Unlike hair removal creams and shaving gels, the wax that is normally used for body waxing procedures does not contain extra ingredients that can cause skin irritation or allergies. Properly done by a trained and experienced professional, the waxing procedure can result in no or very little redness.


No cuts and minimal bruising. It can be frustrating to try and improve your skin’s appearance through a method that results in things that adversely affect its appearance, such as cuts and bruises. Even when these things are temporary, they can be annoying to have to deal with. Waxing does not produce cuts as shaving sometimes does but very rarely can produce bruises.


Stubble-free skin. Unlike shaving, which simply cuts hair off at the point where it emerges from the skin, waxing removes all hair completely by the root. Shaving can result in skin that feels rough and stubbly, whereas waxing can result in skin that feels soft.

In addition to these wonderful skin benefits, waxing can also cause hair to regrow at a much slower rate, which is not true of other hair removal procedures.

The length of time it takes for hair to regrow after waxing can vary, but with repeated waxing, over time it is usually anywhere between four to six weeks, sometimes longer, before hair begins to grow back. When hair does finally grow back, it is soft and fine, unlike the rough, stubbly hair regrowth that occurs after shaving.
