Paraffin wax is used to soften and soothe skin, most often on the hands and feet, and sometimes on arms and legs. The paraffin wax helps deep-moisturise and condition the skin on your hands, and your nails and cuticles.
Once the paraffin has been rubbed or peeled away, rough hands and dry cuticles are left soft and moisturised.
The heat from a wax spa also helps temporarily soothe aching joints and increase circulation, which gives hands a more youthful appearance. The spa's heat has a relaxing effect, helping calm and relieve stress in the same way a warm bath does. Some paraffin spas include scented oils, such as lavender and tea tree, for the additional benefit of aromatherapy.
The heat from the paraffin opens pores and increases circulation in the skin.
This is why paraffin is so beneficial to skin, leaving skin softened and more radiant.

Paraffin should not be applied to skin with fresh, deep or openly bleeding wounds. The wax could inadvertently lock in bacteria, resulting in infection.
Inflamed skin is not a good candidate for the treatment, either. It could increase pain associated with burns and inflammation and cause skin damage. Certain skin conditions, including neoplasm and tumours, should not be paraffin treated. A dermatologist should be consulted for the final decision.
Diabetic patients and those suffering from vascular disease or circulation problems should not use a paraffin treatment. Only a physician can decide if it is appropriate.
If paraffin use results in an allergic reaction or increased skin sensitivity, further treatments should not be repeated. To do so might result in skin damage. Treatments that appear hotter or colder than it should be could be an indication of an underlying health issue. They should be suspended until a physician has cleared the patient for reuse.
Children, the elderly and individuals with physical disabilities should not have paraffin bath treatments. Anyone who cannot read and understand treatment instructions should also be barred from use without assistance.
