Waxing is a fast and inexpensive way to temporarily remove unwanted hair. The Spa at Chelsea Park uses two methods of waxing, the hard wax or non-strip method and the hot wax or strip method. The hard wax method is used for delicate parts of the body where the skin can be thin and fragile, but the hair is coarse. The wax is applied to the skin in the same direction the hair grows, once hardened it is pulled off whole (no muslin Cloth) in the opposite direction. Hard wax is excellent for nose and bikini hair removal. Strip wax is applied to the hair the same as hard wax, the hair is then pulled out by the root with a muslin strip. Traditionally hot wax is the most popular and is great for legs, eyebrows, and backs. A soothing cream is applied to the area afterwards to relieve any sting or redness. The skin is left soft and smooth for 4 weeks.
