Our waxing services in Hickory help you achieve smoother, healthier skin with minimal irritation and discomfort.
Waxing eliminates the hassle of shaving and keeps unwanted hair at bay longer. At WAXmd, we provide waxing services for both men and women in the Hickory, North Carolina area, including bikini/Brazilian waxing, body waxing, and face waxing. With our waxing services, you get:
- Improved skin health
- Smoother skin
- Longer-lasting results
- Thinner and finer hair
- Minimal irritation
- Pre-Wax Cleanser: Our pre-wax cleanser, with anti-bacterial and calming properties, is applied before depilatory waxing. It is designed to cleanse, condition, and prepare the skin.
- Waxing Time!: We use hard wax, which encapsulates the hairs but does not adhere to the skin, allowing for a less painful waxing experience. Our wax is enriched with cotton oil and beeswax, providing a moisturizing and smoothing effect. It is specially formulated to provide a delicate, yet deeply effective, hair removal.
- After-Wax Treatment: Following your waxing treatment, , we apply an after-wax lotion to the area, a blend of pure tea tree oil and lubricating emollients that naturally cools and calms the skin – relieves redness, itching and irritation and helps prevent ingrown hairs.
Bikini waxing is one of our popular services. Once you start, you won’t want to stop. Year-round waxing is always the best approach to maintain healthy skin, and each treatment gets easier and easier. There are three main types of bikini waxes:
- Bikini Line: Just to keep things neat around the sides and top of your panty line
- Bikini Full: This includes the bikini line plus the area in front. You can choose to go bare or leave a strip/triangle
- Brazilian: For those who dare to bare it all, this one includes the bikini full plus the undercarriage and butt strip.

WAXING DOS & DON’TS
- Exfoliate regularly in the areas being waxed. Crystal Peel Soap and exfoliating sponges are great options for this.
- Wear cotton panties when waxing in the bikini region. This helps prevent moisture trapping.
- Avoid waxing when menstruating. This may increase sensitivity to waxing.
- Let your hair grow to ~1/4 inch prior to waxing. If you can pinch the hair, you can wax it.
- Use Amber After Wax Quench for irritated regions after a wax treatment.
- Avoid abrasives/exfoliation for 24 hours after waxing.
- Avoid hot baths, saunas, and hot tubs for 24 hours after waxing.
- Tan or spray tan prior to waxing. It is best to wait 24 hours after waxing to tan.
- Drink alcohol prior to waxing. This may dehydrate your skin and increase sensitivity to waxing.
- Use deodorant for 24 hours after an underarm wax.
- Pick at ingrown hairs. This will lead to infection and further problems. WAXmd offers a great ingrown hair serum that can be used between waxing treatments.
