Waxing Hair Removal in The Hamptons

Unwanted face and body hair can be a persistent nuisance, disrupting the smooth, polished look many desire and often leading to time-consuming and frequent maintenance. Waxing offers a convenient solution, making life significantly easier by providing longer-lasting results compared to shaving or other hair removal methods.

At Blue Water Spa, we use only top-quality materials designed to be gentle on sensitive skin. Our cream-based strip wax is perfect for delicate skin types. Additionally, our all-natural wax acts as a natural antioxidant and excellent emollient, suitable for all skin types. After the waxing procedure, we apply an after-waxing oil to relax and soothe the skin while removing any wax residue. Prior to waxing, we prepare the skin with oil to provide a protective barrier.

How Waxing Makes Hair Removal Easy

Waxing offers numerous advantages over other hair removal methods. It is a practical way to remove a significant amount of hair at once. Plus, the results last longer since hair won’t grow back in waxed areas for two to eight weeks.

Unlike shaving or using depilatory lotions, which cut hair off at the surface and result in regrowth within a few days, waxing removes hair from the root. This not only delays regrowth but also prevents the coarse stubble that often follows other methods. Over time, frequent waxing can lead to softer, finer hair regrowth. Let us provide you with smooth, hair-free skin!

Ditch the Razor: It’s Time for Soft, Smooth Skin

By removing hair from the root, waxing ensures smoother skin for weeks, reducing the frequency of upkeep. Some of the main benefits of waxing include:

  • Eliminating ingrown hairs – Ingrown hairs can be a major nuisance, but laser removal effectively treats them by targeting the hair bulbs. By removing hair from the roots, laser treatment helps you achieve smoother skin.
  • Gentle exfoliation – While waxing removes hair, it also takes off the topmost layer of dead skin cells, leaving your skin feeling softer and more radiant. This gentle exfoliation is an added benefit, distinct from traditional exfoliating methods.
  • No more cuts and itching – Say goodbye to razors and the risk of accidental cuts. Shaving with overly sharp blades or lack of attention can lead to serious injuries. Opt for professional waxing for a safer and more convenient hair removal experience.

This method not only saves time but also leaves the skin feeling softer and more refined, allowing individuals to enjoy their day-to-day activities with confidence and ease.

Prepping for a Waxing Treatment

It’s natural to wonder about discomfort if this is your first time getting waxed. Some clients find that taking a pain reliever before their treatment helps. Also, letting the hair grow slightly longer than the required amount can help reduce the number of times we need to go over the area. Once you start waxing, the best way to minimize discomfort is to stay on schedule with your appointments.

How Long Does Hair Need to Be For Waxing?

The hair needs to be at least ¼ inch long, roughly the length of a grain of rice. Typically, this takes about 2 weeks of not shaving the bikini area to achieve. Hair shorter than this is not long enough to adhere to the wax for effective removal. If you’re unsure about the length, we can always perform a test strip, as some people can be waxed with slightly shorter hair.

How Long Does Waxing Last?

Initially, you may notice more hair growth and random hairs appearing within 1-2 weeks after your appointment. With a few months of consistency, this regrowth reduces significantly. After 3-6 months of regular waxing, you can expect about 2 weeks of hair-free skin, followed by 1-2 weeks of some random hairs emerging and growing to the required ¼ inch length (for the bikini area).

Generally, most people are ready to wax again at around:

  • Bikini – 4 weeks
  • Back – 5 weeks
  • Lower legs & underarms – 3 weeks
  • Upper legs – 4-6 weeks
  • Facial hair – 2-5 weeks

These are general estimates and can vary based on how long you’ve been waxing, the number of active hair follicles, your aftercare routine, whether you shave in between sessions, the texture and growth rate of your hair, and other factors.

Maximize Your Waxing Aftercare

There are certain guidelines after completing a waxing procedure to prevent any adverse effects. To ensure the best results and maintain the health of your skin, avoid the following activities for at least 24 hours after waxing:

1

Engaging in intense physical activities or exercises that cause excessive sweating.

2

Taking hot showers, baths, or using hot tubs and saunas.

3

Exposing the waxed area to direct sunlight or tanning beds.

4

Applying heavy lotions, perfumes, or any products containing alcohol to the waxed area.

5

Wearing tight clothing that may irritate the freshly waxed skin.

Does Body Waxing Cause Hair to Grow Back Thicker?

No, this is a complete myth. In fact, waxing is known to actually reduce or even stop hair growth altogether in some cases. However, it’s important to remember that waxing should be considered a temporary hair removal method, as it takes many years of consistent waxing to significantly slow down or stop hair growth.

Laser And Waxing FAQs

How long does the hair need to be in order to wax?

In the area where you intend to wax, your hair needs to be at least ¼ inch. That’s about the length of a grain of rice. Generally, it takes about 2 weeks of not shaving (bikini area) for hair to grow to this length. Hair that is shorter is not long enough to get “stuck” in the wax and be pulled out. If there’s any question, we can always try a test strip as some people can be waxed at less than ¼ inch.

Is there anything I can do to make waxing hurt less?

Some clients find that taking an ibuprofen before their treatment helps a little. Also, allowing the hair to grow a little longer than the required ¼ inch can help a little by reducing the amount of times we need to go over the area. Once you’ve begun waxing, the one thing you can do to reduce the pain is to STAY ON SCHEDULE with your appointments.

How long does waxing last?

In the beginning, you may experience more growth and random hairs popping up in the 1-2 weeks after your appointment than you would after waxing for a few months. Once you have been waxing for 3-6 months, you experience around 2 weeks free of hair with 1-2 weeks of some random hairs beginning to pop up and then proceeding to reach ¼ inch (bikini area). Most people are ready to wax again at about 4 weeks for bikini, 5 for backs, around 3 for legs (lower) and underarms, 2-5 for facial hair, upper legs 4-6 weeks. These are generalizations/estimates. It depends how long you have been waxing, how many active hair follicles you have, your after care, whether or not you’re shaving in between, the texture of your hair and how fast it grows, etc.

Does body waxing cause hair to re-grow thicker?

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.

TESTIMONIALS

“Bringing my teenage son who is experiencing severe acne. The spa is incredibly inviting and the esthetician Tatiana who is working with him is super attentive. The fact that my son, who was resistant to even using a toner at home, is now asking to go back for follow up facials says it all. Wonderful place.”
