What is Waxing?

Waxing is a method of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root.

How long will waxing last?

Any waxing hair removal will result in new hairs not growing back for two to eight weeks. If waxing is done regularly for several years, permanent hair reduction may be achieved.

How does waxing work?

First a wax combination is spread thinly over the skin. A paper strip is then pressed on the top and ripped off with a quick movement against the direction of hair growth. This removes the wax along with the hair.

Benefits of Wax Hair Removal

There are many benefits to waxing versus other forms of hair removal. It is an effective method to remove large amounts of hair at one time. It is a long-lasting method. Hair in waxed areas will not grow back for two to eight weeks. When hair is shaved or removed by depilatory cream, the hair is removed at the surface rather than the root. Within a few days, the hair can be seen at the surface. With these methods, hair tends to grow back in a rough stubble. Areas that are repeatedly waxed over long periods of time often exhibit re-growth that is softer.

When should you not use wax to remove unwanted hair?

Some physicians do not recommend using wax for persons suffering from diabetes or who have varicose veins or poor circulation as they are more susceptible to infection.

Users of Retin-A, Renova, Differin or Isotretinoin are advised not to have this method performed; these medications tend to weaken the skin and tearing of the skin may occur when the wax is removed.
Waxing should not be done on areas of skin affected by warts, pimples, moles or rashes or on skin that is irritated, chapped or suffering from sunburn.

Never apply wax to peeling, broken skin or varicose veins. Women’s tolerance to pain may vary at different points in their menstrual cycle. Women may experience greater sensitivity to pain during the week before menstruation. For this reason, we recommend that women schedule appointments for the week after menstruation, when pain tolerance is generally at its highest.
