wax at home service

Waxing at home in Dubai might sound like a convenient service for hair removal. Getting a wax at home service for any part of your body can make it feel soft and smooth but it can also be a somewhat painful process. So, people with a low pain threshold are always looking for less painful alternatives to waxing. Luckily, waxing at home isn’t your only choice and this article can be the perfect guide for people looking for other hair removal tools and techniques.Β 

Painless Alternatives for Wax At Home Service

If you’ve already tried waxing before, you probably already know how it works. Professional home service waxing is usually recommended as it includes proper pre and post care which helps ease the severity of any pain you may feel. Most people expect a certain amount of pain, but the reality can be much worse for those who have thicker hair and sensitive skin. 

So, here are some of the most convenient and painless alternatives to waxing.

1: Razor or Machine Shave

One of the cheapest, albeit temporary, hair removal tools is a razor or an electronic trimmer. They can be used on pretty much all body parts and are practically painless. However, you should be careful as blades may cause infections if they aren’t replaced after every use. Always use a moisturizer and shaving cream to avoid getting razor cuts. Moreover, you may need to shave every few days (at most after a week) because the process doesn’t pull out hair from the roots.

2: Depilatory CreamsΒ 

Also known as hair removal creams (or lotions), depilatory products are commonly available over the counter. They are painless and one of the fastest ways to get rid of unwanted hair. All you have to do is slather the cream on dry skin and follow the package instructions for wait time. The cream will dissolve all the hair strands above your skin and you can then wash it off. However, depilatory lotions are known to be harsh on the skin and can cause rashes. So, it is always better to do a patch test before applying the cream to sensitive areas.

3: Laser Hair RemovalΒ 

None of the different types of waxing can promise permanent hair removal. So, if you are looking for a more permanent fix, choose laser hair removal sessions. The high frequency and potency of the laser pulses can cause skin burns and irritation, though. So, make sure that you choose a professional esthetician who knows what they’re doing. 

Laser hair removal may be permanent but you may require several sessions for different body parts before your body is completely hairless. Laser usually costs per session which makes it one of the most expensive methods of hair removal.

4: At-Home IPL Devices

These days there are many variations of hand-held IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) hair removal machines that you can use at home. The machine looks like a small hair dryer and comes with different frequency settings. Ideally, you should start with a lower frequency and then build your way up from there. There is usually a button that flashes intense light on your skin. Make sure that you are looking away when you press the button because the light flash may hurt your eyes. 

They also offer a permanent fix for unwanted hair and are much more affordable than salon laser treatments. If you are consistent with the sessions, the results are promising for almost all body parts including the bikini area. However, it takes longer because you first have to shave the area you want to pulse and the results vary with skin tone.  

5: Natural Hair Removal Products

There are many natural products that can help remove unwanted hair. For example, the middle-eastern tradition of sugaring uses a natural sugar paste that is ideal for sensitive areas like the underarms and bikini line. Look for calming ingredients like tea tree oil, honey, oats, cane sugar, and chamomile in natural hair dissolving products to ease the pain. 

While not completely painless, natural products usually cause much less imminent pain than waxing and are bearable. They are ideal for people who are looking for an affordable and chemical-free alternative.


While these alternatives to wax at home services may look lucrative, almost all of them have cons that one cannot overlook. While some may be too expensive, others are too temporary and ineffective. Therefore, booking a wax at home in Dubai might be the most suitable option for most people. ServiceMarket can help you book waxing services from the best salons in Dubai at affordable rates.Β Β
