Facial waxing. Would you do it? Should you do it?

After working for over 20 years in the health and beauty industry, and specialising in hair removal and skin health from the start, we know a thing or two about skin, hair and where you should, and shouldn’t be waxing.

If you’ve been struggling with facial hair and wondering how you should tackle it, then please read on. We’re about to bust some of the myths, give some advice and provide you with the information you need to understand more about waxing and female facial hair.

Eyebrows first

So first things first, other than waxing eyebrows, which by the way is a very effective method of shaping and defining brows, we don’t recommend any other area of the face is waxed. The face and the skin barrier is just too delicate for wax, and over time it can even lead to the hair growing back thicker and courser.

Waxing the face can also cause redness which lasts far longer than it would if you were to wax any other areas of the body. The face is sensitive and exposed all the time, it means the waxing treatment can be too harsh leading to spots, rashes and of course redness.

Peach Fuzz

It can be tempting to try and find a quick fix for peach fuzz on the lower part of the face, a way to reduce it quickly so that your make-up feels smoother and goes on better. Waxing isn’t the best solution and over the years we have had to deal with many situations where soft, downy hair has become courser due to being waxed.

Often the appearance of peach fuzz or downy hair looks far more visible close up in a mirror especially if it has a light or magnifying glass. We can be our own worst enemy where hair is concerned so our job at Tej & Co is not only to look and assess hair before removing it, but also to get to know our clients too.

We have to gain an understanding on their perspective and reasons for hair removal. A magnifying mirror might be your friend when it comes to make up and contouring the face, but for hair it can sometimes become the exact opposite.

Nobody has a totally bare face. It might look that way from a distance but we can promise you that soft hair grows on everybody and varying levels of light will mean it’s noticed more. Rarely do you see peach fuzz on others so this is what leads to some clients believing they’re the only people who have it. You’re not, we promise.

Epil Pro Treatment

If you are concerned about facial hair the treatment we recommend is called Epil Pro which is a needle-free, heat free and pain free hair removal system. Epil Pro delivers sound waves to the root of each individual hair destroying cells and removing follicles safely and quickly. 

It can be used across the entire face including the upper lip, chin, cheeks, eyebrows, ears, nose and above the shave line in males. It’s a highly effective hair removal treatment which is gentle enough for the delicate skin on the face.

But come and see us in the clinic first so we can assess your situation and make proper recommendation based upon your hair and skin consultation.
