Waxing

Waxing is a method of semi-permanent hair removal that removes the hair from the root. New hairs will not grow back in the previously waxed area for 2 to 8 weeks. Kaufman Plastic Surgery offers waxing services for men and women who would like a low-maintenance method for removing unwanted facial hair. We also offer laser hair removal for those interested in an even longer-lasting solution for areas of the body.

Please call us at 916-983-9895 to schedule an appointment and visit our Folsom, CA plastic surgery office in person.

Why Choose Us

  • At Kaufman Plastic Surgery, we’re experienced in a variety of aesthetic treatments for face and body, and perform many nonsurgical med spa procedures every year.
  • In addition to fostering a long-term relationship with our customers, we have also enjoyed many years with the same professional team. Most of our staff members have been with us for several years or more.
  • We understand that any cosmetic treatment feels like a very personal one. That’s why we take special care to understand and address each patient’s unique goals and concerns.

What to Expect

Waxing is accomplished by spreading Cirepil Blue or NuFree wax directly to the skin. The wax hardens as it cools, and a paper strip is pressed on top and ripped off with a quick movement against the direction of hair growth. This removes the wax along with hair and dead skin cells, leaving the skin smooth and hair-free.

Waxing is not recommended if you are using Retin A or Tretinoin products, but can deliver beautiful results even for those with sensitive skin.

Both men and women can benefit from waxing in several areas:

  • Brows (Maureen specializes in brow design)
  • Face
  • Upper lip
  • Chin

Your Treatment Appointment

Prior to your waxing appointment, you’ll have a brief consultation with one of our registered nurses to review your hair removal needs. We make sure to offer flexible appointment times so that you can fit your waxing treatment into even the busiest daily schedule.

This meeting is also a good time to bring up any additional questions you may have or ask about the range of med spa services we offer.

Recovery & Results

Waxing services at our med spa require no downtime. The treatment area may be slightly red immediately following your appointment, but this should fade quickly. New hair growth in the waxed areas comes back soft and fine, not sharp and coarse like shaved hair. After repeated waxing over time, hair regrowth is usually thinner and becomes increasingly easy to remove.
