Hair removal is one of the most popular requested services at our skin care clinic in Columbia, MO. More affordable than laser hair removal, waxing can leave your skin free of hair for several weeks. Waxing ensures removal of fine, coarse, light, dark and vellus (peach fuzz) hair. Whether you want to shape your eyebrows, clean up your bikini line, or kill curiosity with a first-time Brazilian wax, you’ll find Dermistique Face & Body the most experienced at waxing in mid Missouri.
With regular waxing appointments, hair growth becomes softer, finer, and sparse. Exfoliation may be necessary on waxed areas to prevent ingrown hairs. If this is your first experience with waxing, allow seven to ten days of hair growth to ensure a clean and smooth result. Ask us about exfoliation methods for prevention of ingrown hairs. Before you schedule an appointment, please take note of precautions listed below prior to waxing.
Hair removal by waxing is a form of exfoliation and can leave your skin with temporary redness and/or bumps depending upon your skin’s sensitivity level. For best results, you should refrain from UVA/UVB tanning or sun exposure 24-48 hours before or after your service. Also, certain topical or oral medications, as well as certain product ingredients can interfere with results of some waxing services and should be avoided 5-7 days before or after the treatment. Feel free to consult with our esthetician prior to receiving a wax treatment.
