The waxing process:
At Chantelle Esthetics the waxing process is quite simple. Chantelle starts by applying products to cleanse and soften the skin. The wax is applied in the direction of hair growth and removed with a swift pull in the opposite direction. After all hairs have been removed, a soothing aloe vera gel.
A proper waxing service will remove hair by the root, forcing the follicle to produce a new hair. The hair grows back slow and fine, usually two (2) weeks after waxing. Routine waxing usually occurs once every four (4) to six (6) weeks.
Products used for waxing:
- GiGi Brazilian Body Hard Wax: this honey-like wax is great for removing coarse hair in the bikini area.

Hard wax is applied in the direction of hair growth and removed after it cools, without the use of a cloth strip.
- GiGi Zinc Oxide Ultra Sensitive Soft Wax: this wax is strong enough to remove coarse hair, yet gentle enough to use on fine hair, making it great for many areas of the body. Soft wax is applied in the direction of hair growth and removed quickly with a cloth strip.
