WE ARE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE
Beginning July 1, Caroline R. Price, M.D., P.A., will offer Waxing in the office. Call 864-331-2505 to set-up your appointment.
Waxing is a popular hair removal solution among women and men who are seeking longer lasting results than shaving. Whereas shaving trims each hair at surface level, waxing removes the entire hair including the bulbous base. The results can last for several weeks.
The advantages of waxing as compared to shaving are many. Daily use of a razor can result in frequent nicks, cuts and skin irritation. Shaving is also inconvenient, time consuming, and result in stubble within hours.
Regular waxing of a specific area may lessen future hair growth, but it is not a permanent solution. If you wish to eliminate or permanently reduce hair in a given area, ask us about laser hair removal. However, if you are not ready to commit to a permanent solution or are not a candidate for laser treatment, waxing is an excellent alternative.
The first step is a consultation to ensure your candidacy. Our esthetician will ask you about medications and medical conditions that would affect waxing results. Safety is a top priority in our office, and we take extensive measures to ensure that a procedure is appropriate for the patient before proceeding with any treatment.
The waxing process is quite simple. The waxing procedure begins with defining the treatment area and applying a warmed wax mixture. As the wax hardens, hairs become trapped. The wax is then lifted from the skin in a swift and precise movement. If you have any questions about the process, feel free to contact our office.
