Waxing Q&A

What is waxing?

Waxing is a hair removal treatment that pulls the hair from the shaft and root. By removing the entire root, waxing provides longer-lasting results than temporary hair removal techniques, like shaving. Waxing is ideal for individuals who want smooth skin, but are tired of shaving several times a week.

What are the benefits of waxing?

Waxing offers many benefits when compared to traditional shaving, including:

Slower hair regrowth

With waxing, your skin remains smooth for several weeks. Even when you shave close to the skin, you can’t reach the hair beneath the surface. Waxing removes the entire hair, including the shaft and root, for slow regrowth.

Finer hair regrowth

Each time you shave, the razor cuts the hair at a blunt angle. This causes your hair to feel coarse and prickly when it starts growing back. Because waxing removes the entire hair from its root, your hair grows back finer and sparser.

Less razor burn

Running a razor over your skin can lead to an irritating rash that itches and burns. Waxing prevents this irritation, leaving your skin smooth and comfortable.

Fewer ingrown hairs

Ingrown hairs occur when shaven or tweezed hair grows back into the skin. By removing the hair shaft and the root, waxing allows your hair to regrow completely, reducing the risk of ingrown hairs.


Waxing doesn’t just remove unwanted hair. It also exfoliates the skin, eliminating dead skin cells and any dirt and grime.

Does waxing hurt?

Seeking treatment from a trained professional can substantially reduce pain from waxing. When performed quickly and efficiently, waxing should not feel overly uncomfortable. However, treatment from an untrained specialist or waxing at home can be dangerous and painful. 

How long do waxing results last?

Results from waxing can last for up to six weeks. Comparatively, regrowth from shaving can occur within just a couple of days. Waxing can help save time and money on hair removal treatments by reducing your need to shave or tweeze. Instead of shaving every few days, you can return for waxing treatments every few weeks.

The Med Aesthetics, LLC team has professional medical training that ensures your waxing treatments are as comfortable as possible.
