Underarm Waxing Services

At Wax Pink in Long Beach, California, we turn underarm waxing into more than just a grooming routine; it's a pampering experience that leaves your skin feeling smooth and refreshed. Say goodbye to daily shaving and the irritation that comes with it, and hello to long-lasting smoothness.

What is Underarm Waxing and What are the Benefits?

Underarm waxing at Wax Pink involves removing the hair from the root, ensuring your underarms stay smooth for weeks. This method offers several benefits over traditional shaving: it reduces the risk of ingrown hairs, minimizes irritation, and lessens stubble appearance as hair regrows finer and softer. Plus, waxing exfoliates the skin, removing dead skin cells for a healthier look and feel.

How to Prepare Yourself for Underarm Waxing

Preparing for underarm waxing is straightforward. Let your hair grow to at least a quarter-inch so the wax can effectively grip the hair. It's important to exfoliate the underarm area gently to reduce the chance of ingrown hairs. On the day of your appointment, avoid using deodorant or antiperspirant to ensure the wax adheres properly. Drinking plenty of water can also help hydrate your skin, making the waxing process smoother.

What To Expect During Underarm Waxing

Your underarm waxing experience at Wax Pink is designed to be as comfortable and effective as possible. Our skilled estheticians use high-quality wax that's suitable for sensitive skin, minimizing discomfort and ensuring a thorough hair removal process. The waxing session is quick, and we apply a soothing aloe vera gel afterwards to calm the skin and reduce any redness or irritation.

How Often Should You Get Underarm Waxing?

The smooth results of underarm waxing can last up to six weeks, depending on your hair growth cycle. We recommend scheduling your next session at Wax Pink when you notice regrowth, typically every four to six weeks. Regular waxing can lead to finer hair over time, making each session easier and more comfortable.


Underarm waxing not only leaves your skin smooth but also helps in maintaining hygiene. With less hair, there's less area for bacteria to breed, reducing body odor. Plus, the confidence boost that comes with having beautifully smooth underarms is unmatched. Enjoy wearing sleeveless outfits without worrying about stubble or shadows.


After your underarm waxing session, it's important to take care of the waxed area. Avoid applying deodorant or antiperspirant for at least 24 hours to prevent irritation. Wear loose-fitting clothing to allow your skin to breathe, and apply a fragrance-free moisturizer to soothe and hydrate the skin. Exfoliating a few days after waxing can help prevent ingrown hairs, keeping your underarms smooth and clear.
