Trying to keep unwanted body hair at bay can be a frustrating and difficult task. While shaving is a temporary, at home solution to this excess hair, keeping up with the sharp stubble that develops after only a few days can be discouraging. For those tired of the hassle of shaving, there’s waxing. This treatment is a simpler, long-lasting way to deal with unwanted hair on nearly any area of the body.

What is Waxing?
Waxing is a hair removal method that eliminates body hair by taking it from its roots. This is done by applying a professional wax solution to the treatment area, allowing it to cool, and then quickly removing it so that the hair comes up with it.
Because waxing removes hair from deep within the follicle, the results of this treatment last for weeks. This is far more effective than shaving, which only removes hair from the very surface of the skin and lasts for a few days.
This method can be used to remove hair from nearly any area of the body, including the:
- Upper lip
- Bikini line
What are the Benefits?
When compared to shaving, body waxing has a wide variety of unique benefits. While many people are prone to nicking or cutting themselves while shaving, there is no chance of these injuries while undergoing a professional waxing treatment. Surprisingly, this method is also better suited to sensitive skin, as it doesn’t leave razor burn or require prolonged irritation.
One of the primary benefits of waxing is how long the results of each treatment last. While shaving often results in fast, stubbly hair growth, the results of a waxing treatment can last persist for 3-6 weeks.
If you’re interested in undergoing a hair removal method that gives you long-lasting results, waxing may be exactly what you’ve been looking for. At Aesthetics by RidgeView Dermatology, all of our waxing procedures are administered by trained medical professionals.
