Waxing is a method of hair removal that has been used for hundreds of years. Over time, the techniques and the ingredients used to temporarily remove unwanted hair have improved. At Grossmont Dermatology Medical Clinic, patients can choose waxing service to achieve the longest lasting results of any temporary method of hair removal.

How waxing works

To remove unwanted hair, a gentle wax formula is warmed, and applied to the skin using a spatula-like instrument. The warm wax surrounds hairs that protrude from the follicles. As the wax cools, a strip of cloth is placed over it. The cooling wax grips hairs firmly, and the cooled, tacky texture eases hairs from the follicles as the cloth is lifted away from the skin. Our technicians use swift, upward motions to remove wax as quickly and precisely as possible. In the hands of an experienced waxing technician and with the right wax, the process is completely tolerable.

Advantages of waxing

  • Waxing may be performed on almost any part of the body.
  • This method may be ideal for individuals with lighter hair that cannot be removed with laser treatment. Waxing is equally effective on light hair, dark hair, and even baby-fine hair.
  • The results achieved in a single waxing session can last several weeks. The rate of re-growth is different for every person. However, the average length of time before stubble becomes noticeable is significantly longer than after shaving.
  • In many cases, repeated waxing may lead to a natural reduction in hair re-growth. This is because, over time, treated follicles may weaken and no longer produce hair at the same rate.

Common areas for waxing

Men and women may choose waxing services for a number of areas. These include:
  • Arms
  • Underarms
  • Legs
  • Bikini (Brazilian or other technique)
  • Chest
  • Back and shoulders
  • Lips
  • Eyebrows

Waxing is a preferred method of temporary hair removal for several reasons. If you are not yet ready for laser hair removal, or permanent hair reduction is just not for you, we can help. Schedule a visit with one of our trained estheticians to discuss your desire for silky smooth skin, and see how waxing may help you achieve that.

" All of us have skin! Sadly, it is ignored too often until something goes wrong. I recommend GROSSMONT DERMATOLOGY MEDICAL CLINIC and SKIN CANCER TREATMENT CENTER. The entire staff works together to assure an efficient and professional experience. I have been a patient of Doctors Dean, Bushman and Li; and have friends who are patients of Dr. Goskowicz.
