Let’s be real…hair removal can be pesky and a pain. MKP’s waxing services can solve these issues for most people. So what’s stopping you? Often times myths and misinformation can be the #1 reason people don’t get waxed. A few common myths about waxing that we’ve heard are: Waxing is for younger women only. Waxing will make your skin saggy and wrinkly. Waxing will make your hair grow back thicker. Waxing is just for women.

MKP is here to provide you with the best information possible about these common myths.

Myth 1: Waxing is For Younger Women Only

FALSE! MKP Waxing Salon’s services don’t discriminate against age! There is absolutely never an end date to waxing. Just because you get a bit older doesn’t mean you can’t continue to have silky smooth skin! In fact, it’s time to treat yourself, no matter what age you are, it’s never too late to continue, or start waxing! However, you must be 18 years old or have a parent accompany you on your waxing journey. There’s no age limit to feeling and looking beautiful!

Myth 2: Waxing Will Make Your Skin Saggy

FALSE! According to healthline.com, “The deterioration or reduction of collagen and elastin in the dermis are another cause of saggy skin.” Waxing does pull your hair from the root, however, this does not cause wrinkles. If waxing is an extremely painful procedure for you, it may actually be because of your waxing technician. We can guarantee that this will not happen here at MKP Waxing Salon, located in Columbus, Ga! We have the highest trained technicians in the industry and will guarantee you a great waxing experience. A few tips that we have for you to keep your skin happy and healthy are to hydrate all day every day and apply facial sunscreen, even on cloudy days!

Myth 3: Waxing Will Make Your Hair Grow Back Thicker

FALSE! The idea that waxing will make your hair grow back thicker is an old wives tale passed down and down. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. When you begin to come to MKP Waxing Salon and receive our waxing service, this myth will be debunked for itself. Waxing does NOT make your hair grow back thicker than before, it actually does just the opposite! 

After several waxing sessions with our top-notch wax technicians, your hair follicles will actually begin to weaken making your hair grow back THINNER! The biggest benefit to waxing is that your hair will actually grow back slower.

Myth 4: Waxing is Just for Women

FALSE! Waxing is just for women. Wait a minute says who!? Here at MKP Waxing Salon, we don’t discriminate because of your gender! Women and men alike are welcomed into our salon with open arms. We don’t care who you are, if you want to get waxed, you’re gonna get waxed! We’re not sure where this myth came from because plenty of both men and women remove hair from various parts of their bodies. If you already shave it, why not just wax it?
