Having to endure the regular maintenance of removing unwanted body hair from the face and other areas of the body using shaving or tweezing can be frustrating, but at OM Medispa we offer more convenient, longer-lasting solutions such as body waxing.
Serving Elgin and surrounding areas in Illinois, OM Medispa is led by Dr. Savitha Susarla. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out how waxing can help you maintain smooth, silky skin without having to worry to worry about razor burn or ingrown hairs.
What is Waxing?
One of the most common ways to quickly remove body hair, this treatment uses hot wax to completely remove hairs from the follicles. At OM Medispa, we use two different kinds of wax:
- Hard wax is used in smaller areas where the skin needs to be pulled taut, such as the face, underarms, and bikini areas.
- Soft wax is utilized in larger treatment areas such as the arms, legs, chest, and back.
After the wax is comfortably applied to the area and left to set for a few moments, our trained technicians will quickly remove the wax using strips of material, creating a brief moment of intense exfoliation that leaves your skin open and hair-free.
Am I a Good Candidate for Body Waxing?
Men and women who are ready for a long-lasting solution to unwanted body hair and who either do not want or do not qualify for laser or light-based treatments may be good candidates for safe and effective waxing. Our medical team will assess the areas of your body that you would like treated, and we will develop a treatment plan for you so you know what to expect and how often to come back for follow up treatment in order to keep your skin silky and smooth for long-lasting results.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Waxing may result in slight post-treatment redness, which will quickly fade. This treatment is safe and does not carry the healing time and potential risks that lasers and other hair removal remedies do. While conventional methods such as shaving and tweezing can result in skin irritation such as ingrown hairs and razor burn, waxing quickly and efficiently removes hairs from follicles so you can fully enjoy your smooth skin after treatment.
