Surgi-wax is a Brazilian wax that removes leg and body hair. Surgi-wax can be used on the arms, legs, face, bikini line, back and stomach. One of the differences between Surgi-wax and traditional hair wax, is that it does not require fabric strips to remove the hair. Surgi-wax cannot be reused. Some kits come with a roller that spreads the wax for you.

Step 1

Remove the lid on the Surgi-wax container, and place the container into the microwave. Heat the wax according to package directions. The desired temperature depends on the body part being waxed.

Step 2

Place the application stick directly into the hot wax and stir. Gently touch the wax with the tip of your finger to make sure that is not too hot. If the wax is too cold, place it back into the microwave and heat for a few seconds. Stir each time and test on your fingertip before using. If the Surgi-wax is too hot, allow it to cool for a few minutes and then test on the fingertip.

Step 3

Apply wax directly to the skin using the application stick. Work in the direction of the hair growth. Apply the wax in small 3 inch by 1 inch sections. Allow the wax to cool and harden.

Step 4

Hold the skin taut with one hand, while grabbing the end of the wax with the other hand. Grab the end of the wax that is closest to the ankle.

Step 5

Pull the wax back quickly using a fluid motion, lifting in the opposite direction of hair growth. Repeat on the remainder of the area that you wish to be hair free.
