Waxing can be used to remove hair from many parts of the body. Waxing removes hair from the root, and it can take 3-8 weeks for the hair to grow back. The hair that grows after waxing tends to be softer and finer. Waxing leaves the skin feeling softer due to the exfoliation of dead skin cells. Repeated sessions of waxing will cause hair to grow in much finer, sparser, and in some cases stop growing all together.
