The Benefits of Hot Paraffin Wax

If you have yet to try a hot paraffin wax treatment, consider adding this to your manicure or pedicure on your next visit to the spa.

This luxury treatment is necessary, especially during the cold winter, as it provides both cosmetic and therapeutic benefits. It is not a new invention, as hot paraffin wax for better skincare and massage therapy dates back to the Roman Empire. Paraffin is a type of wax that is colourless and odourless and does not clog the pores.

Therapeutically, hot paraffin wax acts as a type of heat therapy called thermotherapy, commonly used in physio to relieve arthritis pain, stiffness, sore joints, and muscle aches. It can also reduce pain for people who have rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia.

The cold winter can further aggravate arthritic pain as the cold can slow blood flow and circulation, causing muscle spasms.

Paraffin wax treatment can also help rejuvenate and refresh your skin, leaving it smooth and soft as the heat locks in the moisture. It is an effective treatment to heal dry and cracked skin, and the wax acts as an exfoliator that sloughs off dead skin cells when removing the wax from the skin. This cosmetic skin maintenance will immediately leave you with soft and glowing skin. Paraffin wax is safe and hygienic for use on the body. Used at a low and comfortable temperature, it will not cause burns or blisters. However, if you have sensitive skin, diabetes, irritations, open soreness, or cuts, consult a health practitioner or doctor before going forward with this therapy.
