Hot Waxing

Hot wax depilation has been available over many years but more recently is not as common as warm wax.

Hot wax consists of beeswax and a resin. Hot wax is melted to a thicker consistency than warm wax. When the wax is applied to the skin with a spatula, it coats the hair with a thick layer. As the wax cools it becomes firmer contracting around the hair and gripping them tightly. The wax remains on the skin until it becomes opaque in colour-drying to form a slight tacky consistency. It is then pulled off the skin with a fast movement.

Some therapists prefer to use hot wax particularly if that is the method they were trained to use.
