When you shave your face, the facial hair is cut off at the surface of the skin, leaving it blunt-edged. When it begins to grow back, it grows in the form of stubble. While a five o'clock shadow is fine for most men, it is unsightly on a woman. Waxing removes the entire hair shaft, meaning it grows back naturally and without the stubbly look that shaving can cause.
As the entire hair is removed from your face, you are guaranteed much longer-lasting smooth skin, notes MyHairWorks.com. The root of the hair is removed completely, meaning that it needs to reform from the root before appearing on your face again. Most wax jobs, depending on how fast your hair grows, can last up to two weeks. Shaving your face or using depilatory only lasts up to five days.
The more you wax, the less hair you'll grow, notes OnlineSurgery.com. Waxing ultimately damages the hair follicle. After having it done repeatedly on your face, the follicle will stop producing hair and you'll become hair free. Of course, the reduction and essential cease of hair growth can take years to occur, but unlike shaving, you'll start to see less hair each time you wax. This is especially helpful when you're embarrassed about the hair on your face.

Q. How long does the Pravana Smoothout Treatment last?
A. The treatment initially lasts 8-12 weeks, however with each subsequent regular treatment during it’s life-cycle; the effects are cumulative thus making the treatment last longer. However, in order for these effects to be achieved proper care is required. We highly recommend using Pravana’s Sulfate-Free Salt-Free Perfection Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner after the treatment. While there are other sulfate-free shampoos on the market, we cannot endorse them because we do not know if they are salt-free. Also, Pravana’s Perfection Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner contain smoothing agents to help extend the life of the service. Regular hair care products with these chemicals significantly reduce the life-cycle of the treatment. Other factors that affect the life-cycle include: how frequently the hair is shampooed; perspiring heavily; and swimming. It is strongly recommended the hair is at least rinsed well after these activities. The type of water used on the hair also affects the treatment lifecycle. Well water and salt systems leave deposits on the hair that can strip it. If possible, a filter is recommended.

A. We recommend 12-48 hours before shampooing, however the hair may be water rinsed and restyled if necessary.
Q. Can the Pravana Smoothout Treatment be used on chemically or color treated hair?
A. Perfection Smoothout is so gentle to the hair it can be performed safely over hair previously treated with color or a thio, keratin/formaldehyde, sodium or calcium hydroxide relaxer or smoother.
Q. Can the hair be colored or highlighted before or after the Pravana Smoothout Treatment?
A. The treatment can be applied right after a chemical, color, and/or highlight application, but you do run the risk of color loss. However, there is no problem coloring the hair after the treatment has been applied. You can even do it in the same visit!
Q. What are some of the pros of getting Perfection SmoothOut done instead of a Keratin or Brazilian treatment?
A. There is absolutely NO formaldehyde or formaldehyde substitutes. You can color & shampoo your hair the same day, but recommended to shampoo the following day. Cost starts at half the price as the other services. You can wear your hair up right after service.
