What is Body Waxing?
Body waxing is a cosmetic treatment for unwanted hair. Waxing is considered a better alternative to shaving because the entire hair is removed from the root. Body waxing is a long-lasting hair removal method that some patients prefer more than laser hair removal.
Benefits of Body Waxing
Body waxing offers the following benefits:
- Removes the entire hair follicle
- Offers long-lasting results
- Can be performed in delicate areas
- Waxes are chosen based on the location and type of hair
- Allows for precise hair removal and shaping
How Does Body Waxing Work?
Body waxing works by applying warm wax to the area. As the wax cools, it hardens to trap the hair.
Am I a Candidate for Body Waxing?
Body waxing is considered safe and effective for most patients. You may not be a good candidate if you have a sunburn or other skin condition.
What to Expect During a Body Waxing Treatment
Your aesthetician chooses a wax based on the area of the body that is being treated. This ensures that the hair is removed with the first application and helps protect the skin. A thin layer of wax is applied and allowed to set. A piece of cloth or gauze may be placed over the wax to help with removal. The aesthetician then removes the wax with a quick and firm motion that is parallel to the skin.
What to Expect After a Body Waxing Treatment
After the aesthetician removes the wax, you may experience a slight stinging sensation that lasts only a few seconds. You should not experience irritation or ingrown hairs that commonly occur when you shave the area. On average, new hair growth occurs after three to six weeks.
