How can waxing remove hair?

Waxing hair removal at New Leaf Adult & Women’s Health NP, PLLC, uses hot wax and fabric strips to remove hair follicles from your skin. However, you’ll need maintenance treatments to help ensure that treated hair doesn’t regrow. 

If you find it challenging to wax hair by yourself, Enjoli can help ensure you’re comfortable throughout the waxing process. 

What areas on my body can waxing treat?

Waxing removes unsightly hair on any area of your body, including your:

  • Upper lip
  • Neck
  • Face
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Buttocks
  • Bikini area

Waxing is a highly effective hair removal technique for most skin types. However, waxing may not be the best hair removal treatment option for sensitive skin as it can lead to peeling, redness, or scabbing.

Is waxing right for me?

To find out if waxing is the right treatment for you, Enjoli examines hair in the areas of concern and discusses your desired results, medical history, and aesthetic goals. Then, she lets you know what to expect during each procedure and tailors a treatment plan that best suits your needs. 

How should I prepare for waxing?

Before your waxing procedure at New Leaf Adult & Women’s Health NP, PLLC, Enjoli recommends you to protect your skin from the sun and avoid other hair removal treatments for several weeks. 

What happens during the waxing procedure?

During each treatment session, you rest in a reclining chair or exam table. Enjoli may numb the treatment area to reduce any discomfort and keep you comfortable throughout the waxing process.  

Then, she applies the heated wax strips to the predetermined areas. The procedure might last 30 minutes or less, depending on the size of the treatment area.

What should I expect after the waxing procedure?

After you undergo waxing hair removal, you may resume your usual routine and daily activities immediately. You can expect some tenderness, swelling, or redness at the treatment site, but these side effects are temporary and should fade.
