There are many benefits to waxing versus other forms of hair removal. It is an effective method to remove large amounts of hair at one time. It is a long-lasting method. Hair in waxed areas will not grow back for two to eight weeks. When hair is waxed away, the hair is removed at the root. Within a few days, the hair can be seen at the surface. With other methods, hair tends to grow back in a rough stubble and can be incredibly uncomfortable. Areas that are repeatedly waxed over long periods of time often exhibit regrowth that is softer and grows back more slowly. Waxing can be painful when the strip is removed from the skin. Although the pain is not long-lasting, it can be intense, particularly in sensitive areas.
