Technically, it is possible to wax shorter hair, but it does not make much sense. In order to get optimal and long-lasting results, all hair needs to be at the surface of the skin which is not the case at a length of 2 mm. The hair that is still beneath the skin surface during the treatment would become visible only a few days later.
Usually, the results last for several weeks. The duration varies from customer to customer, depending on the individual hair growth rate and on methods of hair removal that have been used prior to waxing. All in all, the hair grows back slower with more regular waxing treatments.
Due to the fact that the full hair is removed from deep within the hair shaft, the treatment is not entirely painless. However, the experience of pain is different for everyone. For one person it will feel less painful than for another. Additionally, there are body parts which are more sensitive to pain than others. Regular hair removal treatments with warm wax will make the hair thinner and easier to remove, the body will “get used” to the treatment and the discomfort decreases over time.
There can be some irritation, particularly after the first waxing. There may be redness and small spots, in rare cases there also may be itching. This is totally normal. Usually, the irritation will subside within a few hours and disappear completely. A soothing gel, e.g. aloe vera, can help to reduce redness. The reaction is normal because the hair is removed from the matrix and the follicle expands. With regular treatments the hair will become thinner, red spots will shrink, pores will become smaller and the skin texture will be more refined, smooth and beautiful.
When the skin is injured or irritated, waxing is not advisable. You should also be careful with loose connective tissue, thread veins and varicose veins.
Generally, it is possible to do hair removal with warm wax during a pregnancy. However, some pregnant women tend to have loose connective tissue, thread veins or varicose veins. This is why we advise against the treatment of specific body parts.
Generally, waxing with a piercing is possible. We will decide individually depending on where and what kind of piercing it is.
With a Brazilian wax, the hair from the pubic area is groomed or removed completely with warm wax. At Waxme, women can choose between two styles of Brazilian: the Brazilian Hollywood Cut removes all the hair from the pubic area, the Brazilian Triangle leaves a small triangle in the front and the Brazilian Landing Strip leaves a small strip in the front. Unlike the Brazilian wax, the bikini wax only removes the hair at the bikini line so that no hair is visible when you wear one. On Wikipedia you can find an interesting article about Brazilian waxing.
We offer treatments for customers of 16 years and older. The age restriction for the Brazilian wax is 18 but it is available for younger customers who bring a signed parent consent form.
Waxme is located in the pedestrian zone of the Trier city centre, Jakobsspitälchen 1. Our street is branching off of Fleischstraße so you will find our salon not far from Kornmarkt and Trier Galerie. You can see the exact location on the map.
For hair removal with sugaring the hair can be very short, starting from 1-2 mm. For optimal results the hair should be 3-6 mm in length.
