Body Waxing

Body Waxing


Smooth away unwanted facial or body hair that cannot be treated by Laser Hair Reduction with waxing. We offer waxing to almost any area of the body. While facial waxing is most common on the eyebrows, upper lip or chin; body waxing can be done on any area.


Common body waxing areas:

  • armpits
  • legs
  • arms
  • back

Waxing treatment is a popular choice in removing unwanted hair and is used most commonly as an alternative to shaving or laser hair removal.


Wax On, Wax Off

The treatment begins with a cleaning of the surface area of the skin. Then, hot wax is applied to the area and subsequently removed with small strips of paper or muslin for soft wax. Hard wax is applied and removed without any strips. Small areas of hair are stripped away, one at a time, and a soothing cream is applied after treatment.

It can cause mild discomfort as the hair is being removed from the under layer of the skin, but the pain only lasts while the wax is being removed. In most cases, discomfort does not linger after the treatment is complete, and no down time is required. However, it is important for individuals who choose body waxing to refrain from using harsh scrubs for a few days after treatment.

Body waxing is a temporary solution for hair removal on all parts of the body. Although results may vary from individual to individual, most results last for a period of three to six weeks before another treatment is necessary.
