Located a mere 10-minute walk from the shores of Lake Simcoe and Heritage Park, The Downtown Regiment brings an array of advanced beauty services to Barrie. They range from hair removal to facials to mani-pedis, but the true gem is cold wax paste hair removal. During which, a paste is applied by hand and molded into the hair follicle. Then, with a quick flick of the wrist, the paste and hair is removed in the direction of growth. This way of elimination of unwanted hair is said to be less painful and irritating than ordinary waxing, since the paste attaches only to the hair, not the skin. What's more, it allows for removal of shorter hairs than waxing, even as short as 1/8 of an inch.
