What is waxing?

Waxing is a method of hair removal where warm wax is applied to your skin and hair and removed quickly to remove hair. Waxing removes the entire hair, from the root or follicle.

What is shaving?

Shaving is a method of hair removal in which you use a blade, usually in the form of a razor, to cut the hair shaft to where it exits the skin. Shaving does not remove the whole hair from the root, but cuts very close to the skin’s surface.

Which hurts more – Waxing or Shaving?

Since shaving only cuts the hair at the skin’s surface, the actual shaving is not very painful. If you’re clumsy, you might end up nicking or cutting yourself in areas that are awkward to shave.

Waxing rips out your hairs from the root or follicle, and it definitely hurts more than shaving. How much more? That depends on your pain tolerance. Also depends on the act how you do the waxing and also the products.

How Long the Results Last?

The more consistently you wax, the longer you’ll be able to stretch out your appointments, but on average, a wax can last up to two weeks before regrowth appears.

As far as shaving goes, doing so every day or every other day is necessary for completely stubble-free skin. Women with lighter or thinner hair might be able to squeeze in another day or two before shaving again, but typically a couple of days is the max.

So which is more convenient – Shaving or waxing?

Shaving is easier and doesn’t hurt at all, BUT waxing saves so much more time and lasts longer than shaving.  There are certainly waxes specially formulated for sensitive skin or skin that is prone to acne breakouts. VS Beauty Parlour surely use the best product safe for every kind of skin, so no need to worry.
