With four convenient locations serving Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra and St. Augustine, Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery, led by double board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Phillip Garcia, offers waxing. Our professional approach to waxing is discreet, relatively painless and provides a longer lasting result for North Florida patients interested in semi-permanent hair removal.
Our waxing services are designed to effectively remove hair from some of the most delicate areas of the body, including the face, legs, bikini area and underarms. We gently remove hair with precision, leaving the skin soft, smooth and irritation-free. Our aestheticians exercise control and extreme care when removing hair to protect the elasticity and overall health of the skin. Allowing a professional aesthetician to remove unwanted hair from your body can make waxing a much more comfortable experience and ensure a quality, long-lasting outcome.
Professional waxing not only removes unwanted hair, but it can simultaneously exfoliate dead skin cells. Once you experience our professional waxing services, you’ll notice a distinct difference in the texture and appearance of your skin and hair. You’ll no longer have to worry about rough skin and prickly stubble during those intimate moments because, with consistent waxing sessions, your hair will grow in finer and thinner, and your skin will become brighter and more radiant over time.
Unlike other temporary hair removal techniques, waxing removes excess hair from the body by manually extracting the hair strand at the root. Waxing is cheaper than shaving because results from professional services tend to last for up to four weeks, and you can save time and avoid nicks, scrapes, and skin irritation since you’ll no longer have to shave every day.
At Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery, our waxing services are gentle, yet effective enough to remove unwanted hair from practically any area of the body, including the:
- Upper lip
- Bikini line
How Is Waxing Performed?
The aesthetician spreads a thin layer of warm wax over the area of unwanted hair. A strip of waxing paper or cloth is applied and smoothed over the layer of wax and swiftly removed in the opposite direction of hair growth using a motion that’s parallel to the skin. This method of removal keeps pain and trauma to the skin to an absolute minimum and provides results that can last anywhere from four to six weeks.
More men and women are putting down their razors and turning to waxing as a quick, safe and semi-permanent alternative to the constant maintenance and skin imperfections that accompany shaving.
How Do I Know If Waxing Is Right for Me?
Waxing is a wonderful option for people who are not ideal candidates for permanent hair removal options, such as laser hair removal, and it’s a safe treatment for most men and women. When you schedule a consultation with Dr. Garcia, he’ll evaluate your hair removal needs, answer any questions or concerns, and along with our aesthetician, create a custom waxing treatment plan that addresses your hair growth cycle and patterns and desired outcome.
