Hair Removal

/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/Brows6.jpg” width=”170″ height=”134″ />Devine Serenity offers both hot and strip waxing techniques. Both are effective at hair removal, however the hot waxing technique is gentler on the skin with less skin irritation than that of strip waxing.

Hot waxing is recommended over strip waxing for anyone with reactive or sensitive skins, Delicate areas, or first time waxers. It is a more time consuming wax technique and this is reflected in the pricing.

Every hair follicle will be in varying (3) stages of the Hair growth cycle. It is of highest importance that you understand your homecare responsibilities to achieve the smoothest result possible.  We will require your assistance in achieving waxing perfection.
