When to Consider Waxing at SVIA Medspa

Waxing is a great way to temporarily remove hair and can be performed for a number of different reasons. Many of our patients come to us seeking waxing services at the start of the summer, as removing extra body hair is a great way to prepare for “bikini season.”

This treatment is great for men and women alike, and can be performed on just about any part of the body that may be featuring excess hair. During your consultation, we’ll get to know your cosmetic goals, and let you know if waxing is right for you. It’s most commonly applied to the following areas:

  • Bikini line
  • Underarms
  • Chest
  • Stomach
  • Legs
  • Upper and lower arms

Will My Hair Grow Back?

The truth is that waxing is not a permanent hair removal solution. It is a temporary treatment, but you will enjoy a significant period of time before your hair begins to grow back. The hair that is removed typically takes up to eight weeks to grow back. Once the hair is waxed, the hair follicles are damaged, slowing down regrowth and producing softer, lighter hair. We’ll be happy to help you by setting up repeat appointments, to that you can maintain your excellent results for as long as possible.

Preparing for Your Waxing Appointment

Before you come in, one of our expert aesthetic practitioners will help you understand everything you need to know in order to adequately prepare for your waxing appointment. We’ll give you detailed instructions, and help you understand exactly what you can expect from your treatment. Prior to your waxing appointment, we typically recommend that the length of your hair in the treatment be between 1/4 to 1/2 inches. 

We’ll also ask you to avoid using products like Retin-A or Retinoids in the treatment area that is scheduled for waxing, for at least one week prior to your. We’ll also help you understand exactly how you can maintain your results after your treatment. Here at SVIA, our goal is to create your ideal look, so you can enjoy all the confidence and empowerment that comes with it. To learn more, reach out and set up your consultation at our San Mateo or Los Gatos locations today.
