You may be unhappy with excess body hair, but you’re probably just as unhappy with your at-home hair removal routine. Shaving is a nuisance because you have to do it so often. Plus, it can be uncomfortable and lead to razor burns and ingrown hairs. On the other hand, plucking works, but it hurts and it takes forever to treat an area of any significant size. Waxing can save you from doing hair removal at home. Enjoy weeks of being completely hairless. Get a treatment that’s good for your skin, and can lead to finer hairs.

For many people, waxing is the best choice for removing hair. That’s because it:

  • Gives immediate results
  • Removes all hair in treated area
  • Achieves smooth results with no ingrown hairs or stubble
  • Causes no razor burn
  • Achieves long-lasting results
  • Takes less time
  • Can be used all over the body
  • Gives good definition to groomed areas

It’s no wonder that waxing is so popular!

People often choose waxing over shaving because the results last longer. Plus, there’s no razor burn, stubble, or ingrown hairs.

And people choose waxing over laser treatment because it gives immediate results, results in true hairlessness in the treated area–with laser treatment, some hairs can escape removal. Plus, will work on all skin and hair colors.

And while electrolysis can achieve good hair removal results, it’s painful and time consuming, not to mention expensive!

Waxing is a great value in hair removal, and it can be good for your skin, too!

Facial Waxing

Waxing can be used to address many common sites of unwanted hair in the face. This can include:

  • Upper lip
  • Lower lip
  • Eyebrows
  • Cheek and sideburns
  • Chin
  • Neck

One big benefit of waxing for facial hair removal is that it can precisely target the hairs you want to remove. This can help you achieve the exact style you‘re looking for with facial hair, including perfectly shaped brows. The lines between the hairy and hairless areas are clear, creating crisp, attractive lines, and the results are long-lasting.

Body Waxing

Many benefits for body hair removal. First, it’s a good way to remove hair from almost anywhere, including:

  • Bikini area
  • Chest
  • Stomach
  • Arm
  • Underarm
  • Shoulders
  • Back
  • Legs

The speed really helps here. Treating body hair with lasers or with electrolysis can take a long time. But with waxing, you can get the results you want from just one quick treatment.

You can even use it if you are looking to define precise areas of hair, such as in the bikini area, or a patch of chest hair.

How Long Do Results Last?

Waxing gives long-lasting results. It’s often about four weeks before hair starts to grow, and it’s likely you won’t see any hair until six weeks after treatment. Some people might see a few sparse hairs start to grow sooner because these dormant hairs weren’t affected.

Does Waxing Hurt?

Not as much as you might think. There is some discomfort, but it’s tolerable. Some people find it’s better to take an over-the-counter pain reliever before an appointment.

Are There Risks Related to Waxing?

Waxing is very safe, but no procedure is completely without risk. Rare complications include: infection, burns, or scarring.
If you want to have the safest procedure:

  • Don’t get sun exposure right away
  • Don’t work up a sweat for 10-12 hours
  • Avoid saunas, steam rooms, and baths for 48 hours
  • Don’t exfoliate waxed area for at least 24 hours.
  • Wear loose clothing for a few days

If you notice any problems or have concerns about the treated area after waxing, let us know. We can help you take care to avoid complications.

Most People Can Get Waxing

Almost everyone is a candidate, but a few people can’t. If you have a skin condition like rosacea, psoriasis, or eczema, it might not be right for you. You should avoid it shortly after suffering skin damage like a sunburn. This includes intentional skin damage like chemical peels, laser peels, and microdermabrasion.

Ask your doctor if medications you’re taking can interfere with waxing or increase risks.
