Leg waxing. Wax and gauze being applied to a woman's leg during a treatment to remove body hair. A knife has been used to spread warm wax onto the leg in a long strip. Gauze, as seen here, is then placed over the wax and the wax left to cool and harden. Hairs on the leg become trapped in the wax. When the gauze is pulled away, hairs are pulled out with it. Other methods to remove body hair include shaving and the use of depilatory creams.
