Side Effects of Waxing and Common Remedies

Waxing Staten Island is a great way to get rid of unwanted hair. Many people like how waxing lasts longer than shaving and provides a smoother finish. However, like most cosmetic procedures, there are some side effects to waxing.

Waxing Staten Island

Common side effects of waxing are:

  • Allergic Reaction - While not common, some people are allergic to the ingredients in the wax. It's a good idea to test a small portion of skin first to check for any reactions.
  • Skin Infection - A skin infection is not common either but may occur with excessive trauma or irritation. Be sure to clean the skin before waxing to avoid an infection.
  • Ingrown Hairs - Waxing disrupts the hair follicle. Sometimes when hair grows back, it will grow inward instead of outward. This is known as ingrown hairs. Exfoliating the skin before and after is a great way to avoid ingrown hairs from occurring.
  • Pimples - Waxing leaves your pores open, which often leads to breakouts. Tiny bumps, pimples, and whiteheads are quite common on freshly waxed skin. Use an exfoliator on the area before waxing to prevent pimples.
  • Redness and Irritation - The level of redness and irritation one suffers from depends on the sensitivity of their skin. This is one of the most common side effects. The best way to alleviate symptoms is by wearing loose-fitting clothing after your session.
