Waxing is a great way to remove unwanted body hair, especially from the bikini line and underarms, where hair grows in thick and coarse. Waxing pulls the hair out of the follicle, so it takes longer to grow back. It must grow back to the surface of the skin before it is noticeable again. Our dermatologists are pleased to provide waxing in Orem, Utah.

This hair removal technique removes large amounts of hair at once. Dr. Jenson and Dr. Edwards warm the wax and spread it over the skin in the direction of the hair growth. Thick paper or cloth is placed on the wax. The hair will become embedded in the wax, which cools and firms up. The wax is pulled off in the opposite direction of the hair growth, using the paper or cloth. This pulls the hair out of the follicles. Any wax left on the skin is removed using oil. Our dermatologists are skilled at heating wax to the right temperature so that it is effective but does not burn the skin.
