Many people deal with hair growth in areas of the body that are less than ideal or may even be downright embarrassing. While shaving or commercial depilatories may work for some people, in order to keep up with rapid hair growth you have to shave often, which can leave you with irritation and painful ingrown hairs. For those looking for a semi-permanent way to remove hair, waxing can offer fast, effective results that last longer than regular at-home shaving. Both men and women can benefit from waxing services and just about any area of the body can be waxed.
- Bikini Area
- Hands and Feet
Waxing only takes a few minutes and our team of aestheticians makes it as easy and painless as possible. During your waxing session, we will first clean your skin and then apply warm wax to the area to be treated. A cloth strip is placed over the wax and pulled from the skin to remove unwanted hair from the roots and dead skin cells, which will leave your skin feeling smoother and softer.
Waxing can take anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes depending on the size of the area you want waxed. Hair will usually grow back several weeks after your last waxing session, but will often grow out thinner and lighter with each waxing. If you want to maintain these results, you’ll want to consider getting waxed every four to eight weeks.
Remember that before your waxing session you’ll want to refrain from shaving for at least two weeks beforehand in order to get the best results with the least irritation. Also, avoid tanning beds or sunbathing before your appointment and wait several hours before going into a hot tub or swimming pool to reduce your chance of developing an infection. Those with any allergies, skin sensitivities or skin conditions like rosacea should talk us before getting waxed to make sure that this cosmetic option is right for you.
