Lip and Chin Waxing

Lip and chin waxing is a simple cosmetic procedure available at Brandon Essentials that uses body wax to remove unwanted facial hair. Hard wax is used during the removal process of lip and chin hair. Hard wax is a warm, thick wax applied to the area needing waxing. Hard wax is allowed to cool on the skin, which hardens the wax and traps the hairs. It is then manually removed without the use of a muslin strip.
For many women, the hair around their mouth and chin darkens as they age and after major hormonal changes, which can impact confidence and self-perception. Lip and chin waxing are typically chosen for cosmetic reasons; however, it is not the only reason for lip and chin waxing. We also have men who opt for this waxing to cut down on shaving and minimizing ingrown hairs.

Lip and chin waxing is performed in four simple steps:

  1. Wash and dry the skin thoroughly.
  2. Apply the wax and allow it to harden.
  3. Peel the wax away quickly in the opposite direction of the hair growth.
  4. Apply a soothing solution to the waxed area.
Lip and chin waxing is commonly combined with other waxing options such as eyebrow waxing or other Brandon Essentials salon services since the procedure is fairly quick.

Does Waxing the Chin or Upper Lip Hurt?

The reported pain can vary from individual to individual. Many people feel a slight discomfort while others may feel a brief pain, much like when ripping off a bandage. Hard wax is used to reduce discomfort and minimize the possibility of irritation because it attaches to the hair only, and not the skin.
