Paraffin waxing is a luxurious treatment that is intended to moisturise and soften the skin.
Paraffin wax is not like “warm” or “hot” wax that is used for hair removal on the face and body. That type of wax is much more viscous and bonds to the skin. Paraffin wax is a softer wax because of the paraffin oil component. As it’s a soft wax, it melts at a lower temperature, so this means that the skin can be treated with the wax without causing burning or blistering.
The hands or feet are then wrapped in plastic, or some other non-absorbent material and left to 'soak' in the layer of wax for up to 30 minutes.
Paraffin wax treatments are particular popular in the winter because they are warning and they provide a great deal of moisture to dry and cracked skin. During paraffin wax treatments, the skin is bathed in warmth, which helps the pores to open and the skin soften.
Once the skin has been allowed to soak in the wax and the layer has hardened, it can be pulled off in one solid piece. Because the wax is soft and contains oil, it does not become very stiff and does not adhere to the skin. After the paraffin wax treatment the skin is left slick and soft.
