Benefits of a Paraffin Wax Pedicure

October 26, 2022

The fall and winter seasons are officially upon us, and we are just as excited as you about the reemergence of Pumpkin Spice lattes and cozy knit sweaters! However, one thing all beauty lovers are dreading is the dry skin that comes with the colder months, especially on our feet. Lucky for us, we have our Bellacures Deep Hydration paraffin wax pedicure service that utilizes paraffin to help rehydrate and trap in moisture. We love this service all year round, but paraffin wax is truly our saving grace when it comes to seasonal dry and flaky skin. You may or may not have heard about paraffin wax before, but we are here to teach you all the benefits whether it be therapeutic or cosmetic, that you can experience during a Bellacures Deep Hydration pedi!

What is Paraffin Wax? 

Paraffin is a colorless, natural wax substance made up of resins, and oils. While paraffin is very versatile in the way it is used, it has made a name for itself in the cosmetics industry. It is commonly used in salon, and spa treatments to soften, and moisturize your hands, feet, and cuticles, making it perfect for our clients here at Bellacures!

Benefits of Paraffin Wax:

Cosmetic Benefits:

Paraffin treatments are perfect for your skin all year round. Not only does paraffin assist in keeping your hands and feet hydrated in the colder months, it also helps them to retain moisture during the dryer summer season. It is particularly effective for those who often get calluses to help in removing dead skin, and healing dry patches. 

Therapeutic Benefits:

On top of its intrinsic cosmetic benefits, it is also known to have therapeutic benefits that help in providing pain relief to sore joints, and muscles. It is especially beneficial for individuals who suffer from osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, and other joint mobility issues. It acts like a form of heat therapy and can help increase blood flow, relax muscles, and decrease joint stiffness. Paraffin wax can also minimize spasms and inflammation as well as treat sprains.

What to expect in our Deep Hydration pedicure:

The service will begin by completing a softening soak in one of our single-use pedicure tubs, followed by filing, shaping, and cuticle care. Next we will begin by placing our clients feet in disposable bags filled with our deeply hydrating paraffin soak with heated booties. This is the best part of a paraffin wax pedicure is that the soak hydrates, moisturizes, and removes dead skin, while the heated booties assist in helping the wax retain its heat to relax muscles, reduce inflammation, and decrease joint stiffness. While we allow the paraffin to work its magic, we begin our moisturizing hot towel wrap with our Bellacures butter cream and grapeseed oil. After having undergone both hydrating treatments on your feet, we will finish off this portion of the service with a 10 minute massage and some cuticle oil. Lastly, top it off with your favorite polish, and top coat for maximum shine!

We at Bellacures love to go above and beyond for our clients, and this paraffin wax pedicure is no exception! We are confident that when you leave our salon, you and your feet will be in Deep Hydration heaven!

Our Deep Hydration Treatment is also available in a manicure service. Our luxurious Signature Service also includes a paraffin wax treatment, or consider adding it on to any treatment for just $15! Book your next appointment here at Bellacures to give it a try.
