Waxing Q & A

What is waxing?

Waxing is a hair-removal process involving the application of wax and strips of fabric. The process removes hair from the root, and it’s an excellent hair-removal alternative to plucking, daily shaving, laser treatments, electrolysis, or depilatory creams.

What can you expect during a waxing session?

Your aesthetician takes you into a treatment room and has you lie down comfortably on a treatment bed. They have you lift any clothes that cover the treatment area.

Next, your aesthetician applies warmed wax to the treatment area and lays a strip of cloth over the wax. When the wax dries, your practitioner stretches the skin and quickly tears the cloth strips off the treatment area, pulling your hair up with it.

This process continues until the entire treatment area is complete. Then, your practitioner applies a soothing cream to help calm the skin and help prevent redness, irritation, and bumps.

The waxing process can be painful and produce uncomfortable side effects. Dr. Singleton can provide coping strategies to make the process more comfortable.

It may help to take an anti-inflammatory pain reliever an hour or so before the treatment and wear soft clothing. Ask your provider for tips to help prepare for and recover from your treatment.

What areas can you treat with waxing?

The providers at The Ageless Institute can wax any hair on the body, but the most commonly treated areas for women include:

  • Armpits
  • Legs
  • Bikini line
  • Upper lip
  • Chin
  • Feet

Men typically visit the clinic to wax their:

  • Back
  • Chest
  • Abdomen

What are the benefits of a professional waxing?

The aestheticians at The Ageless Institute use professional-grade materials and techniques to wax. This is one of the safest, most effective waxing methods available.

When a professional performs a wax, you get more consistent results. They can access more hard-to-reach sections of skin than you can.

Another benefit of waxing is that it’s a great middle ground for hair removal. It’s not as costly as laser hair removal, but it’s much more effective than daily shaving.

Since wax removes hair from the roots, the results last up to a month. It’s a great way to prepare for bikini season or big events like weddings and photo shoots.
