Waxing

Save the time and hassle of shaving with semipermanent wax hair removal.

Waxing at Skin on Forty-Five is performed by our highly trained Beauty Therapists. Our team is also trained in alternative forms of hair removal and can design a management plan designed specifically to suit your needs. 

Waxing is a method of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the follicle. New hairs will not grow back in the previously waxed area for two to six weeks. 

Almost any area of the body can be waxed including eyebrows, face, bikini area, legs, arms, back, abdomen and feet. If waxing is done regularly for several years, permanent hair reduction may be achieved.

This is more likely to occur with men who are waxing areas with thick hair, especially the first few times when follicles are strongest. While usually impossible to eliminate, this can be reduced by regularly exfoliating and applying an astringent or a solution of both astringent and oil (typically baby or azulene oil).
