For men and women who are tired of shaving daily but aren't quite ready to make the jump to laser hair removal, waxing is a great alternative. Using special wax solutions and soft, linen cloths, waxing removes the hair in a targeted area along with the follicle from the root. The result is a smooth, clear, hairless outcome that can last up to six weeks. Houston, TX plastic surgeon Dr. Edward Lee has expanded his practice to include a full medical aesthetic spa offering a wide variety of spa services, including professional waxing. Hair removal by waxing is used to treat numerous areas of the face and the body such as the eyebrows and legs. We currently offer the following waxing services:
- Arm and Hand
- Back and/or Chest
- Brow Sculpt
- Full Leg
- Brow and Lip
- Facial and Chin
- Bikini Line
- Brazilian Bikini

Waxing is very popular among both women and men of all ages and skin types. It is a hair removal method that works well for anyone desiring a hairless surface that lasts longer than shaving, but with a lower cost per session than laser hair removal. Waxing does require the patient to grow hair in the treated area between appointments, but the results typically last 3 – 6 weeks. Our MedSpa also offers laser hair removal for patients who desire to have a hairless surface for years to come.
What to Expect
Patients should arrive for their appointment with hair in the chosen area at least ¼ inch long and untrimmed. Once the area is cleaned and disinfected to remove excess oil that may prevent the wax from sticking, the wax is applied and then covered with cloth strips. When ready, the technician will peel away the wax strip in the direction opposite of the natural hair growth. After all of the strips are removed, the aesthetician will clean off any residue, tweeze any stray hairs, and apply a soothing healing ointment.
Waxing can be painful for some people, especially the first time, so it's advised to take a pain reliever before an appointment. After waxing, patients should wait at least two days before exfoliating the waxed area. While waxing does not permanently remove hair follicles, most patients will find that with regular treatments, waxing will make hair in the treated area lighter and finer. In addition, the procedure often becomes less painful with each additional treatment.
