At-home Vs. In-Office Waxing: 3 Considerations to Make

Facial and Body Waxing Plano, TXThere are some things that are better left to the professionals, and there are some things that are worth trying at least once or twice. As one of those things, depending on who you talk to, some people prefer to give themselves a wax and others prefer to have it done directly at Dr. Fiona Wright’s office. So, how can you decide which option is better for you? Read on to learn more about the considerations you should make.

  1. The Area Being Targeted

If you are waxing someplace like your legs or upper-lip, you are likely okay to do it on your own. If, however, you are trying to wax your bikini or Brazilian area, you should never do this on your own because you could get serious burns or even an infection. Remember that the more sensitive the area is, the better it is to come into Dr. Fiona Wright to get waxed.

  1. Your Skin Type

Do you have sensitive skin? Is your skin tone fair? Do you burn easily? If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, you should consider always getting professionally waxed. Waxing is an art and depending on your skin type; it may not take well if you do it on your own. However, by coming into our office and getting waxed by a professional with experience, you can ensure that no matter what type of skin you have, that you get waxed like a pro.

  1. The Results

Yes, it is true that you can buy similar wax and strips that professionals use from your local beauty supply. However, because you don’t have the extensive training that our aestheticians do, you probably won’t be able to get the same results. Specifically, you will likely have to repeat the process over and over. If you want flawless results every time, come into our office.

There are somethings that are worth trying out on your own, like waxing your legs once or twice. However, there are some parts of your body that should only be waxed by a professional. If you would like to learn more about waxing, contact Dr. Fiona Wright today to schedule an appointment!
