Cosmetic Services and Waxing Q & A

What are cosmetic services?

Cosmetic services describe an extensive list of noninvasive aesthetic procedures that help you look and feel your best without an incision. Your skin, hair, and body are refreshed with little to no downtime needed.


 

How can cosmetic services help me look my best?

The experienced aestheticians at MediSpa At Choto offer a wide range of cosmetic services to help you feel good in your skin without invasive cosmetic surgery, including:

Special event makeup application

Get ready for a wedding, the prom, or just a night on the town with professionally applied makeup. If you’re in need of a new look, try a cosmetic makeover.

Lash extensions

The licensed technicians at MediSpa At Choto apply fake lashes one by one to create a dramatic, natural look. Lash extensions last as long as the full growth cycle of your natural eyelashes, which is usually between six and eight weeks. You may need a touchup or maintenance application every three to four weeks.

Sunless or airbrush tanning

To give yourself the look of suntanned skin without the harmful effects of the sun, visit MediSpa At Choto for sunless or airbrush tanning. A sunless tanner contains an ingredient that reacts with the surface layer of your skin, turning it a brown or tan color, just like a suntan.  Sunless tanning lasts until your skin cells shed during your body’s normal exfoliation cycle. Airbrush tanning is similar to sunless tanning, except the technician applies it to your skin with a compressor and airbrush.

Improving your appearance doesn’t have to come from invasive surgery or major changes. The compassionate and talented aesthetic team at MediSpa At Choto can give your appearance a boost for your daily routine or a special occasion through a variety of noninvasive techniques.

What is waxing?

Waxing is the process of removing hair from your body at the root using wax. Wax is a sticky substance that works like glue on body hair. As you pull the wax off your skin, it pulls the hair from the follicle. 

Shaving removes hair from the surface of the skin, leaving the follicle underneath to regrow quicker than when you remove the hair with the follicle. Waxing also removes dead skin cells, giving you softer skin than shaving.


Does hair grow in lighter after waxing?

With a consistent waxing schedule, your hair will grow in softer, lighter, and thinner. The longer you wax, the less hair will regrow.


What’s the difference in waxing for men and women?

Both men and women can remove unwanted body hair through waxing. The primary difference in waxing men and women is that men tend to have more body hair than women and the hair they have is often thicker. As a result, it can take longer to wax hair for men, and wax for sensitive skin should be used to limit rashes and discomfort.


What are the most common waxing treatments for men?

Men most commonly have chest hair, back hair, arm hair, and ear hair removed with waxing. Some men also receive a male bikini or Brazilian wax (the bikini line).


What body hair can women remove with waxing?

Women can have most body hair removed with waxing, including:

  • Underarm hair
  • Upper lip hair
  • Eyebrows
  • Chin hair
  • Leg hair
  • Bikini line
  • Brazilian 
  • Back hair
  • Chest hair
  • Arm hair

 

Hair waxing results last somewhere between three and six weeks, depending on your hair regrowth rate.


How often can I get waxing?

Most people schedule waxing appointments every three to eight weeks. Your hair must be at least a quarter-inch long before it can be removed with waxing. 

After your first waxing, you might see hair regrowth in just a few days as there could be hair that wasn’t long enough for wax to grasp and remove at the initial appointment. 

Facial hair and underarm hair regrow faster than your leg hair and bikini area, so you may need more frequent waxing for those areas.
