Waxing Wonders: Debunking Common Myths About Hair Removal

Do you long for the confidence of silky-smooth skin that lasts? Waxing is definitely your answer! However, some common myths may be holding you back from booking an appointment.

We get the worry at Gilded Ritual Spa and Nail Salon in New York. That’s why we’ve taken all your concerns to heart and are here to make your waxing experience worry-free by debunking these waxing misconceptions:

Myth: Waxing Leads to Thicker Regrowth

Fact: Waxing targets the hair at its root (called the bulb), which takes weeks to rebuild and produce new hair. That’s why you experience smoother skin for longer compared to shaving.

Shaving simply cuts the hair shaft above the skin, leaving the root intact. The hair regrows quickly and maintains the same thickness. Consistent waxing will actually weaken the hair follicle itself, leading to finer, thinner hairs that are easier to remove in the future.

Myth: Waxing is Responsible for Wrinkles

Fact: While waxing is responsible for some minor discomfort, the good news is that it won’t age your skin. In fact, compared to other hair removal methods, waxing offers several skin benefits, such as smoother skin texture, reducing the chances of pesky in-grown hairs, and exfoliating dead skin cells.

The science is clear: Aging is a complex process influenced by sun exposure, genetics, diet and lifestyle choices—not waxing.

Myth: Waxing is Incredibly Painful

Fact: Pain tolerance varies, but waxing shouldn’t be an ordeal that scars you for life. When done correctly with high-quality wax and by the hands of professional estheticians, the pain is minimal and temporary.

Rest assured, they’ll treat even the most sensitive areas with care to ensure you have a positive and mostly pain-free experience.

Myth: Waxing During Pregnancy is a No-No

Fact: Waxing is completely safe for expectant mothers in all trimesters. What is true, however, is that pregnancy hormones can heighten your skin’s sensitivity.

So, to ensure a more comfortable waxing experience throughout your pregnancy, consider starting a waxing routine in the first trimester to give your hair time to thin out, making future waxing sessions easier to manage.
