After Body Waxing, How Fast Does Hair Grow Back?

hair removal Most people go to a waxing studio to get hair removed for an event or for the summer beach season. When they walk out of the spa door, they leave feeling cleaner, lighter, and smoother. Unfortunately, no hair removal option is permanent (that’s right, not even laser hair removal). So, the question you might be asking yourself is, “how long does hair grow back after some body waxing?”

Finer, Sparser Regrowth 

Waxing off unwanted body hair is only temporary, but it has some great long-term benefits. Dark, thick, unwanted hair seems to only get worse shave after shave. At Wax Spa, we wax off body hair from the root of the follicle. Since the hair is removed from the root, it changes the way the hair grows back. Each time hair is waxed, the follicles become weaker, eventually encouraging diminished hair regrowth.

When body hair is waxed, it will eventually come back. Some, however, experience finer, sparser hair regrowth after a couple years of waxing. Thinning of hair after waxing services ranges from person to person and area to area, but it is much more affective than shaving with a razor.

Having hair grow back sparser is great, but how long does it take for it to grow back.

Time Between Waxes

Generally, people come back into Wax Spa within 3 to 6 weeks of the first waxing. The time varies drastically based on area, hair type, and individual skin type. Since the optimum length for waxing is one-eighth to one-quarter of an inch long, coming back in before hair grows to unsightly lengths is essential.

For some people and on some areas like the bikini, hair regrowth can take as much as 2 to 3 months. At Wax Spa, we help people get rid of unwanted hair anywhere on the body. Our services are centered around a spa atmosphere that is relaxed, calm, and inviting.
