Arm & Leg Waxing

Are you tired of the tedious act of shaving? You’ve come to the right spot. Arm and leg waxing is a convenient hair removal method that takes less time than shaving and even lasts longer, too! Luckily our esthetician and wax specialist is here to serve with a highly knowledgeable background on waxing. For the best results, experience the Aveda difference here at Salon Madeleine.

The Waxing Process

The waxing process removes the root of a hair follicle which is technically known as the depilatory process. Our esthetician provides excellent waxing services at Salon Madeleine. During the appointment, she will gently apply wax to targeted areas on the arms and legs. Once the warm wax has clung to the hair above the skin, she will remove it by pulling the wax strip. While the wax is heated, it is not hot enough to burn the skin.

Our High-Quality Wax

We take skin seriously. Our salon promise is to never put something in or on your skin and hair that could potentially harm you. This promise is why we ensure that our wax is made out of the highest-quality ingredients. The products we use in waxing are derived from natural waxes formulated out of resin, pure beeswax, and natural plant oils. We craft our waxing products this way to provide extra conditioning to the skin. We know that waxing can be a bit uncomfortable, which is the exact reason why we swear by our low-temperature all-natural wax at Salon Madeleine.

Arm Waxing

Individuals interested in getting their arms waxed have a few options to choose from at Salon Madeleine. We offer underarm waxing, full arm waxing, and half arm waxing. Based on the area(s) you choose, our waxing specialist will use our natural wax to apply against the hair growth. The result will be a clean, smooth wax with no hair in sight!

Leg Waxing

At Salon Madeleine, we offer full and half leg waxing for clients interested in this hair removal process. In our full wax option, hair typically is removed from the top of the thigh down to the ankle’s base. Our wax specialist will remove hair from the knee to the ankle in our half-leg wax. If requested, they can also remove the hair on the top of the thigh down to the knee.

Why Waxing is Best

There are many different reasons why waxing is superior to shaving. The lasting results of waxing speak for themselves. However, a few of the commonly claimed benefits are:

  • Smooth Skin: As soon as the waxing treatment is over, clients can both see and feel how soft and hairless their skin is. Because the wax removed the hair from the follicle, there will never be any razor bumps!
  • Healthier Skin: Waxing treatments are done for hair removal, but the process also exfoliates the waxed areas. Products can better absorb into the skin with the dead cells removed from the surface. 
  • Thinning Hair: The more the depilatory process is done, the thinner the hair that grows back will become. Some say that their leg and arm hair becomes softer as a result of the process.
  • Long-Term Results: Removing the follicle at the root will make the hair growth process on the arms and legs take up to a few weeks to show. Therefore, results will last better than other methods. No need to touch up your shave every day!

Preparation Suggestions

We’re always trying to give the client their best experience at our salon. Plain and simple, waxing isn’t the most pleasant of all of our offered treatments. To make the most out of the experience, arm and leg hair should be at least ¼ of an inch long. If the hair in the targeted areas is any shorter than that, it can become challenging to extract the follicle out of the skin. Our team also suggests that waxable areas not tanned for at least 48 hours in advance. Finally, if possible, try to avoid caffeine before the waxing appointment. Consuming caffeine can make the skin’s pores tighten and, in turn, can make the experience more uncomfortable.

Post-Wax Care

After a waxing appointment, we highly discourage sun exposure in the waxed areas. The treated areas tend to be more sensitive to light and can experience irritation or burning of the skin if exposed to too much sunlight. Clients should also avoid hot compresses after waxing. If needed, try a cold compress instead to prevent any irritation from heat.
