Does waxing cause ingrown hairs?
Generally speaking, ingrown hairs appear on women with high levels of male hormones, with extremely dry hair, or with very tight pores that make it difficult for the hair to break through the outermost layer of skin. Here’s a tip: One week after waxing, begin exfoliating the skin two or three times per week, and use moisturizing body oils.
Does waxing cause varicose veins?
No, it doesn’t. Varicose veins are enlarged, clogged veins that are unable to return blood to the heart. This has nothing to do with the application of wax to the skin’s surface.
Waxing makes my face turn red. Is this normal?
Yes, this is normal. Facial skin turns red after waxing because it’s a highly sensitive and vascular area, and hair removal triggers the circulation of blood. It’s a good idea to avoid sun exposure for 24 hours after removing hair from the face.
Can a person with skin allergies get a waxing?
It’s best to ask a dermatologist whether an area affected by allergy can be waxed.
Can waxing cause spots or darken the skin?
Dark spots may appear if the skin is exposed to the sun without sunscreen, especially after waxing. Sun exposure should be avoided for the first 24 hours after waxing, and sunscreen should be used thereafter.
Should the wax be disposable?
Yes. The same wax should not be used on more than one client. Also, the applicator used for a Brazilian wax should be dipped in the wax container only once, and should always be discarded after use.
How long should I wait between waxings?
Three weeks is a good rule of thumb. Waxing more frequently may cause ingrown hairs.
Is it okay to get a waxing during pregnancy?
It depends. Ask your doctor before scheduling a waxing.
I’m getting a facial treatment. Can I also get a waxing?
It’s best to use thread to remove the hair 3 or 4 days before your next visit to the aesthetician.
Can I get a waxing immediately after sun exposure?
No. It’s best to leave a 24-hour cushion. Hair removal and sun exposure both make the skin very sensitive.
What does Brazilian Beeswax recommend to its clients for optimal results?
Avoid sun exposure, and do not use lotions or deodorants containing alcohol, for 24 hours after waxing to prevent the appearance of spots. Avoid wearing tight pants or jeans for seven days after waxing the bikini area or legs, as this can irritate the waxed area. After waxing any part of the body, always use sunscreen, even on rainy days. For best results, exfoliate the area to be waxed two days before your appointment.Type your paragraph here.
