Waxing & Threading
Waxing is a very popular alternative to shaving or tweezing for the removal of unwanted hair. At our medical spa, our licensed aestheticians offer gentle, effective techniques for facial and body waxing for Calgary residents. Waxing, when performed by a qualified professional, can be very effective for addressing both small and large areas of hair growth, with results that last for weeks or even months. At our clinic, our aestheticians are skilled, attentive, and discreet, and will help to make your waxing experience a comfortable one.

The Benefits of Waxing
Hair removal through waxing is a very effective, straightforward, and cost effective means of hair reduction. For those who are not ready for laser hair removal in Calgary, waxing may be the next best option. Unlike razors and depilatory creams, which remove the hair at the skin's surface, waxing removes hair at the root which offers many advantages, including:
- Results that can last from 2 to 6 weeks
- Regrowth that tends to be softer and finer
- No rough stubble or razor bumps
For women, waxing is a popular treatment for the eyebrows, upper lip, chin, cheeks, legs, underarms and bikini area. For men, common treatment areas include the back, neck, chest and arms. Many of our patients make waxing a part of their regular beauty regimen, and often combine it with other medical spa services such as a facial or a pedicure.
During the treatment, your aesthetician will spread a warm wax formulation onto the treatment area. Then a cloth or paper strip is gently pressed onto the wax, which immediately binds to it. With one quick movement, the cloth strip and the wax are whisked away from the skin, taking the unwanted hair with them. This process is repeated as necessary until the desired results are achieved.
Threading is an ancient Eastern hair removal technique which can be used to eliminate hair from the brows, upper lip, cheeks or hairline. This very specialized technique involves rolling a fine thread over unwanted hair, which plucks it at the follicle level. This method is highly efficient, sanitary, and precise, and no chemicals are used on the skin. Our aestheticians are among a small number of professionals in the area offering this increasingly popular treatment.
