Description:

This extensive manual provides a modernized approach to hair removal and dispels the rumors, old wives tales, and half truths about hair growth, hair removal, and the techniques that are associated with the procedures. Deigned to act as a resource for students and practicing aestheticians, Advanced Waxing and Hair Removal discusses the must-know subjects of anatomy and physiology; patient interviewing; charting; techniques; and how to grow a hair removal business; and includes patient studies, photographs and recommendations for treatment. Illustrated are the processes of hair removal by following several candidates through different hair removal techniques and provides many illustrations to observe the results. Documentation of treatment plans, interviewing techniques, and patient recommendations are made available to the reader. In addition, the book discusses the use of lasers, who can perform this procedure, how it works, and why it may be the single prong in the hair removal plan for a patient. With its simple, non-intimidating approach, this handbook provides the reader with advanced, updated, and need-to-know information about the hair removal process.
