Unwanted hair can appear on many body parts. This might include the chest, back, shoulders, underarms, and bikini area. Many people embarrassed by the presence of excess hair in these areas will attempt shaving to remove or to sculpt the hair.

Unfortunately, shaving only cleaves the hair at the level of the dermis. The follicle itself will still continue to grow new hair in the area in less than a single day. This often requires daily shaving or allowing the hair to grow back to a more significant length.

One alternative to shaving is to have unwanted hair waxed at the Dermatology Center in Orem, Utah. This treatment involves applying a special dermatological wax to the area of unwanted hair. Once the wax bonds with the strand of hair, it will be carefully peeled away.

This waxing treatment will release the core off the hair strand from the follicle. While the hair will eventually grow back, the waxed area will inevitably take longer to experience significant regrowth.

Some people will also choose waxing to remove unwanted body hair before taking a vacation to a sunny location. They might then opt to maintain the area by shaving occasionally.

If you live in the Orem, Utah area and you have unwanted body hair in need of waxing, you should call 801.224.5200 at the Dermatology Center’s clinic.
