Waxing is the longest-lasting temporary hair removal technique available. The warm wax used enters the follicle, allowing the hair to be pulled out from the root. Hair must be 1cm long to wax and will not grow back for up to 3 to 6 weeks.
This procedure uses heat to kill, or render inactive, the hair follicles. Electrolysis has the best results for isolated areas of unwanted hair on the face or body.
