To wax or not to wax? Obviously, at Beach Beauty Health Spa, we love waxing — but why? What makes waxing the superior hair removal method?

Today, our beauty spa hair removal experts will be giving you four great reasons to toss the rusty old razors and schedule your next waxing appointment at our Miami Beach location today!

1. Waxing is Longer Lasting

Shaving severs hair at the surface of the skin, so depending on how quickly your hair grows, you could feel stubble mere hours later as the hair grows up past the skin’s surface again. To maintain smooth skin, most people have to shave at least a few times a week.

Waxing, in contrast, pulls hair out at the root. Because it removes each individual strand of hair from the source, your hair will take much longer to grow back in, and you can enjoy smooth, stubble-free skin for two to three weeks at a time.

2. Waxing Does Not Cause Nicks

Who among us hasn’t accidentally unleashed a flood of blood in the shower after nicking their leg with their razor? The truth is, it’s quite challenging to get a perfect shave, especially if you have sensitive skin. Razor blades carry the risk of inflicting small cuts, nicks, or gouges, which can all cause long-term scarring or skin discoloration. Razors can also cause uncomfortable rashes, bumps, and razor burn.

Waxing is a great alternative because there are no blades involved, and hard wax is generally much gentler on your skin than a blade. Some people believe waxing causes more irritation, but for a properly-done wax, any redness or irritation should subside within the hour! Additionally, there are specialized options for sensitive skin waxes.

3. Waxing Cuts Down on Bathroom Time

Shaving takes a long time, and if you’re trying to maintain completely smooth skin, you’ll have to do it several times a week. All that time in the bathroom adds up!

Waxing, on the other hand, is an easy, convenient, come-and-go process that can free up hours in your monthly schedule. Simply arrange a thirty-minute waxing appointment once or twice a month and you are good to go! Now, instead of taking up hours of your time in the bathroom, your monthly hair removal process will be done in one quick appointment.

4. Waxing is More Cost-Effective

Although on the surface, waxing appointments carry a higher price tag than a cheap pack of razors, when you begin to look at the extra costs associated with shaving, it’s easy to see that waxing is much more cost-effective. Shaving requires purchasing new razors any time the old ones get dull or rusty, along with shaving cream and band-aids for those nicks that never stop bleeding. Not to mention the utility cost of all that shower water, or the value of multiple hours of your free time every month. When you look at the big picture, waxing is the more economical choice.
