Frequently asked questions
What is waxing?
Hair removal is often done with wax in order to remove the entire hair from the hair follicle. Warm wax is used on the skin so that it will adhere to your hair. When the wax is removed, your hairs are pulled from their roots.
Does it hurt?
Everyone has different tolerance levels for pain, but when waxing strips are pulled off, the action may produce a short, stinging sensation. If you are worried about the pain, we recommend taking an aspirin or ibuprofen 20-30 minutes before your appointment. If you wax frequently enough, each time will be more tolerable, since you will have less hair and the remaining hairs will be finer.
What kind of wax is used?
For the face and more sensitive areas of the body, a hard wax is used that wraps and hardens around the hair. Hairs are lifted from the skin and it makes for a less painful removal process. A traditional, soft wax is used for larger areas of the body, and is removed using a cloth strip.
How long will my results last?
Results will vary, but you can expect to be hair-free for a minimum of 1-2 weeks following your appointment.
Will my hair grow back thicker and darker?
No. The hair that is removed will grow in finer and softer over time. Waxing removes hair at the roots.
Permanent Hair Removal
Schedule permanent hair removal in Dover, New Hampshire
At Skin Health Medi-Spa, we provide permanent hair removal services with IPL technology (along with the ProWave hand piece). Now men and women alike are making facial and body hair a thing of the past! With this technology, we can reduce and remove hair rapidly, and treat large areas of the body. IPL is safe, effective and works on a wide range of skin types. When you come into our medspa in Dover, we can determine how many treatments you’ll need. A series of 6-8 treatments is usually recommended. If you’re tired of the constant shaving and waxing, permanent hair removal is the faster, more effective option. Treatment pricing is available upon request. Give us a call at (603) 742-1980 or fill out the appointment request form on our site to request your appointment.
Frequently asked questions
How does permanent hair removal work?
IPL uses light to reduce hair growth. Light from the ProWave hand piece travels harmlessly through the skin until it hits the hair follicle, where most of the melanin (or color) is. The light is converted into heat energy, which destroys the follicle and most of the hair shaft. The dead hair is then pushed to the surface of the skin and eventually falls out after 1-3 weeks.
What can I expect during my appointment?
During your appointment, you will be lying down comfortably as we apply a thin layer of conductive lotion in the areas you want treated. When the treatment begins, you will see flashes of light. Most patients say they occasionally feel a mild snapping sensation, especially in extremely sensitive sections or over a bony area. After we are done, you will have an opportunity to wipe away any excess lotion and apply a rich, soothing moisturizer or calming hydrocortisone cream. The procedure time will depend on the size of the removal area.
What kind of results can I expect?
Results may vary, depending on what areas we are treating and how many sessions you have already completed. In the first few sessions, hairs usually take 3-4 weeks before starting a new growth cycle. The more treatments you have already had, the longer the time between sessions will be.
It is important to come in every 4-8 weeks, depending on the area being treated. This will ensure the most effective, long-lasting results. Patients need at least 6-8 treatments to see a significant reduction in hair. Once-a-year touch-ups are necessary for maintenance.
