About Waxing

For patients who aren't ready to make the financial commitment to laser hair removal, but want something that lasts longer than shaving, waxing is the best choice. Using special wax and cloth strips, waxing removes hair follicles from the root for a smoother result than shaving that can last up to 6 weeks. At Bella Lago Aesthetics, the Tahoe/Truckee area MedSpa of Charles P. Virden, MD, wax hair removal is used to treat many areas of the face and the body, including the eyebrows and bikini area. The treatment areas and estimated times for treatments are:

  • Arm and Hand: 30 Minutes 
  • Abdomen: 15 Minutes 
  • Back: 30 Minutes
  • Brow Sculpt: 15 Minutes
  • Full Leg: 45 Minutes 
  • Brow and Lip: 15 Minutes
  • Bikini: 15 Minutes 
  • Brow, Lip & Chin: 15 Minutes
  • Lip or Chin: 10 Minutes 
  • Underarms: 15 Minutes 
  • Brazilian Bikini: 30 Minutes 
  • Brazilian Bikini Extended: 30 Minutes 

Best Candidates

Waxing is best for anyone who wants a hair removal method that lasts longer than shaving, but with a lower cost per session than laser hair removal. Waxing does require the patient to grow hair in the treated area between appointments, but the results typically last 3 – 6 weeks.

What to Expect

Patients should arrive for their appointment with hair in the chosen area at least ¼ inch longer and untrimmed. Once the area is cleaned and disinfected to remove excess oil that may prevent the wax from sticking, the wax is applied and then covered with cloth strips. When ready, the technician will remove the wax strip in the direction opposite of the natural hair growth. After all strips are removed, the technician will clean off any residue and tweeze any stray hairs.

Other Considerations

Before waxing appointments, patients should allow hair in the treated area to grow to at least ¼ inch so the wax and strip have enough to hold onto. Waxing can be painful for some people, especially the first time, so it's advised to take a pain reliever before an appointment. After waxing, patients should wait at least 2 days before exfoliating the waxed area. While waxing does not permanently remove hair follicles, most patients will find that with regular treatments, waxing will make hair in the treated area lighter and finer.
