Hair growth is a natural occurrence to the body. It usually grows on the head, arms, underarms, legs and pubic area, but it can grow virtually anywhere. The removal of hair on the body is a common practice with a long history that spans across many cultures. There are various reasons why hair removal is so popular. At Madonna OBGYN and Medical Spa, we offer waxing for hair removal to help make your life easier.
In ancient times, the removal of body hair was to help ensure proper hygiene. For instance, if there was a lice infestation, the hair would be removed from the body to contain the problem and eradicate the lice. In modern times, the removal of body hair is done so for aesthetic reasons. Having bare, smooth skin is desirable and attractive to many people.
There are several ways to remove hair from the body. One popular way to do so is waxing. Waxing is the process of using wax-based products to get rid of the hair follicle in its entirety (which is from its root). There are many waxing options to choose from.
There are many benefits to choosing waxing as the method of removing hair from the body. The first benefit is that this treatment is a fast and convenient process. The second benefit is that waxing helps the hair grow back slower and finer. It can take multiple weeks for the hair to grow back. There has even been some reports that after waxing for a long period of time, the hair in the treated area stops going altogether.
Another benefit of this treatment is that there will be less chances of getting ingrown hairs and cuts. Hair removal by this method will leave the skin feeling and looking very smooth. An added benefit of waxing is the wide range of areas that you can choose from to have treated. Another benefit of waxing is that it causes minimal damage to the skin as compared to other methods of hair removal. The wax is natural and less likely to contain any chemicals that would cause adverse skin reactions.
