Waxing is a safe, effective and non-invasive way to remove unwanted hair from virtually any part of the body. The most common treatment areas include the legs, bikini line, arms, abdomen and eyebrows. Waxing consists of the application of wax to the specified treatment area. The was is then removed quickly using cloth, and this results in the patient being rid of unwanted hair.
Waxing is a safe and effective treatment for healthy men and women. The optimal length of hair for wax removal is ¼ of an inch. Hair that is shorter than that is often difficult to remove, and longer hair may break or clump during waxing, making the session less effective.
Waxing is not recommended for patients who are using Accutane or have taken this medication in the past six months. Sunburned skin that is irritated or unhealthy also should be avoided. Take time to heal before scheduling your appointment.
During your initial consultation, one of our highly experienced medical aestheticians at Adam and Eve Medical Aesthetics Scottsdale will discuss your medical history, analyze your skin and ask about your concerns and goals. With this information, we can help you make the right decision and determine if waxing is the best choice for you.
Waxing is a semi-permanent hair removal procedure that causes little if any irritation when completed by the professionals at Adam and Eve Medical Aesthetics in Scottsdale. After one session, patients notice that unwanted hair above the skin is eliminated with results typically lasting for about 4 to 6 weeks before repeat waxing sessions are necessary. As the hair growth cycle varies, some patients need more than one session initially to reduce the appearance of all unwanted hair in a specific area. Over time with continued waxing, hair can become finer and the growth cycle slows.
Waxing is safe, effective and non-invasive. The procedure is also quick and requires no downtime after your appointment. Only minimal preparation is necessary prior to waxing. Your hair needs to be ¼” long to optimize the results of your waxing treatment. Therefore, we recommend that you stop shaving about 2 weeks prior to your appointment. Avoid tanning and exfoliating the area you plan to wax for a week prior to your appointment to prevent irritation. Utilize Adam and Eve Medical Aesthetics recommended line of products to optimize results. On the day of your appointment, eat and drink as normal and relax! The more relaxed you are, the easier the treatment is.
Arrive at our facility about 15 minutes prior to your appointment time to complete any last minute paperwork and allow time for questions. Once you are comfortable in our treatment room, your skin will be cleansed and prepared for treatment. Your waxing appointment will take anywhere from 15 minutes to one hour depending on the size of the area we are waxing.
After your appointment, you can return home or to work or to your normal activities. Redness, itching and bumps are normal and can last for a few days, depending on the individual. Avoid vigorous exercise, swimming in chlorinated water, tanning, and intercourse for at least 24-hours after your waxing session. After three days, begin to gently exfoliate your skin to prevent any ingrown hairs. If you have any questions or concerns, contact Adam and Eve Medical Aesthetics in Scottsdale.
