If you’re like most people, you’ve probably tried many different methods of hair removal in the hope of getting rid of unwanted body hair for good. Unfortunately, there very few permanent hair removal products and treatments available today, and the best hair removal options tend to be incredibly expensive (like laser hair removal), complicated (ever tried electrolysis?), or painful (two words: razor burn). However, there is one quick and affordable way to remove body hair that is tried and true, and we offer it right here at our Chicago waxing studio! From all of us at Celebrity Skin Couture Air Tan in Wilmette and Chicago, IL, here are a few reasons why body waxing is better than shaving.

Softer Skin & Less Irritation

Tired of shaving your legs, underarms, or bikini line, only to feel prickles on your skin just a day or two later? One of the great things about waxing is that it removes the entire hair from the root (or the hair follicle), rather than cutting it from the top, which results in smoother skin and a better outcome. Plus, you won’t have to deal with razor burn or itchy skin after visiting your local waxing studio — in fact, any skin irritation you experience from body waxing typically goes away after a few hours, and your waxing specialist can provide you with an aftercare kit to soothe the skin. But what about the pain of having all those hairs pulled out at once? Sure, waxing might be a little painful the first time around, but your skin gets used to it with each additional waxing appointment, and it’s quick enough that you’ll hardly have time to feel it.

Hairs Grow Back Thinner

Another great thing about leg waxing, underarm waxing, and even eyebrow waxing is that the hairs tend to grow back thinner and more subtle than they were before. This is because the hair follicle is weakened with each waxing service (and might not even grow back), rather than strengthening each time you shave it, which actually stimulates thicker, faster hair growth. Trust us when we say the last thing you want is to make those unwanted hairs even thicker, so if your goal is to reduce the appearance and roughness of pubic hair, underarm hair, or even back hair in men, waxing is the way to go!

Long-Lasting Results

Often, what keeps people from investing in professional waxing services is the upfront cost, but it’s worth it when you consider the fact that you only have to visit the waxing salon once every month or so. This is because waxing gets to the root of the problem (literally), meaning that the hair has to completely regrow before it becomes visible once again — and, as we mentioned already, it will likely show up softer and thinner than before, if at all. Plus, there are many affordable waxing services available today, especially if you sign up for a monthly package at a discounted rate!
