• Does waxing cause the skin to sag?

    No. There is no scientific data which supports that using wax causes sagging on human skin. The main causes of sagging skin are external elements such as smoking too much, vitamin deficiency, directly and long term exposure to sunlight, malnutrition and genetic reasons.

    • If I use wax on an area which I have never waxed, does hair become stronger?

    No, wax doesn't have such an effect. Applying wax or hair removal cream on an area which hasn't been waxed before, does not strengthen the hair or make it denser.

    • Does using antesthetic creams before waxing decrease the pain during waxing?

    Yes, it does. These kind of products have local anesthetics effect, they anaesthetize skin surface, diminish or eliminate pain and burning. However, they should be used under doctor control as they are medical products. They are very risky products which may have serious adverse effects such as paraplegia when used out of their main purpose or over daily dose.

    Instead of taking such a risk, we advise you to use pre-wax preparation wipes so that you can have the same effect with natural ingredients.

    • Does using liposoluble wax regularly cause the hair to disappear after a while?

    No, it is not possible to permanently get rid of unwanted hair with regular wax use. However, liposoluble wax doesn't include hair nurturing elements and sugar, so in regular use, hair growth rate decreases and you need to wax less frequently.

    • What is the reason of bruising and reddness after waxing?

    This is experienced by everyone who uses wax, however this problem is easily avoided by using it consciously.

    Firstly, we would like to mention that the reason for bruising and redness is the irritation wax makes on hair root.

    In case that wax is not used in a right and conscious way, you may experience bruises and redness and also feel much more pain during waxing. There are two important things you need to consider for waxing without irritating hair root:

    Spread the wax on the skin in the direction of hair growth.

    Pull wax or wax strip in the opposite direction of hair growth in a single and fast move.

    If you are not careful about spreading and pulling directions, the veins on the hair roots tear apart and bleeds, this may cause bruises and redness on the skin.

    Applying in the wrong direction as well as applying twice on the same area may cause bruises and redness, so you should avoid them. Also, waxes with high acidic values and produced of raw materials not suitable for depilation may cause bruises and redness.

    • Why do we feel pain during waxing?

    Here is the most important problem we face in waxing... Pain... Shortly, you can see the reasons below: Waxing is the process of gripping the hair with the wax adhered to the hair and taking it out of the skin. As you could see below, human hair is directly connected to circulating system with veins and to central nervous system with small nerve ending. When the hair is pulled from hair tips, nerve ending connected to hair root separates from the root and sends a pain signal to the brain, that causes us to feel pain.

    Razor blades, hair removal creams and foams and similar methods do not remove the hair from its roots, thus they don't cause pain. However, they don't have long lasting and effective results as waxing.

    • Liposoluble wax or warm wax?

    The main difference between liposoluble wax and warm wax is their content. Warm wax is made of sugar, whereas liposoluble wax is made of resin. As liposoluble wax doesn't contain materials which nourishes hair root, so after regular use, the growth rate of the hair gets much slower and the time interval between waxing sessions extends. Also, resin has a tackiness stronger and sugar, so liposoluble wax has a better performance than sugar wax and can remove more hair at once. Besides, liposoluble wax doesn't leave an unpleasant feeling as it doesn't feel sticky like sugar wax.

    • Doesn't your wax remove all the hair at once?

    Again, this widely faced problem stems from the wrong use of wax. When you follow the steps in our tips to use the wax correctly, you will easily see that it removes the hair in one move.

    Make sure that your skin is clean and dry.
    Keep the wax on liquid consistency and optimum temperature.
    Spread the wax in the direction of hair growth and without leaving any space between them.
    Make sure that wax firmly sticks to your skin.
    Pull the wax in the opposite direction of hair growth in one fast move.

    If you don't care about spreading and pulling directions, you may not be able to remove all the hair. Also, when hair root is leaving the skin, the veins on the hair roots may tear apart and cause harm. This would end with bruises and redness on the skin.

    • What is liposoluble wax?

    Wax is technically a glue that sticks to your hair. It helps you to pull out (mechanically) the hair that it holds as it freezes by itself or via a strip and to remove the hair on your skin by the root.

    Liposoluble wax is the name for the waxes produced of resin, rather than sugar and other chemicals These waxes are natural as they are produced by using the resins secreted by the trees and they do not nurture the hair roots as they don't include sugar.

    • Does waxing cause ingrown hair and pricks?

    If you don't use properly, you may face these problems. You should spread the wax and stick the strip in the direction of the hair growth; you should pull out the strip in the opposite direction of the hair growth. If you don't pay attention to these details, the hair may grow in the wrong way and cause pricking and ingrown hair.

    • I had bruises on my skin after waxing, why?

    The reason of the bruising in your skin is the bleeding occurring around your hair roots, under the skin in application area during waxing. The bleeding may be because of sensitive skin or wrong application. If you were not careful about spreading and pulling directions during application or you applied wax on the same area more than once, this may cause bruises.

    We recommend you to avoid wrong applications like that and use Painless Pre-Wax Wipes which include natural oils preventing bruises by crinkling your veins, so that you can minimize sensitivity related bruises.

    • In which parts should I definitely not use the wax?

    Never use the wax on nipples, anal, perinatal area (around anus), on wounded, worn, scratched skin areas, on skin areas with moles, eczema and acne, on reproductive organs, penis and testicles, also on burned and rushed skin, on inflammatory skin or on areas with any kind of skin problems.

    • How is liposoluble wax cleaned?

    The raw material of liposoluble wax, resin is not a water-soluble material, so it can't be cleaned with water. As resin is oil-soluble, you can easily clean it with oil from your skin or anywhere it was accidentally spilt. If you will clean it from your skin, ensure that the related oil is not harmful for your skin and it does not nurture hair roots.

    • Can I have a sunbath after waxing?

    After the application your skin will be more sensitive and the pores will be open, so the UV rays may be more harmful. Thus, we recommend you to stay away sun light at least for 24 hours, also no to use skin care products which include alcohol and abrasive ingredients.

    • Am I allergic to wax?

    Although rare, some people are allergic to resin which is the natural raw material of wax and the extracts used in the product and for allergic people, using wax may cause reactions such as acne, redness etc. To avoid this, 1 day before usage, make an allergy test on a small part of your body as recommended in the user instructions you could find in product packages.
