Side Effects of Waxing
Cosmetic dermatology procedures such as waxing can be done quickly and safely in a medical spa. Most areas of the body can be waxed, revealing smooth, silky skin underneath hair. Many women choose to wax their legs, bikini area, arms, underarms, upper neck, chin, eyebrows and upper lip. More men are opting for waxing procedures as well. Male waxing may include removing hair from his chest, back and even groin area.
Like many other cosmetic dermatology procedures, waxing can have side effects. Waxing side effects may include but are not limited to:
- Redness, irritation
- Skin darkening
- Ingrown Hairs or Pseudofolliculitis
Long-term waxing may lead to increased wrinkles in the area that has been repeatedly waxed. Waxing can help eliminate excessive hair problems. The waxing procedure removes hair by the root and typically leaves the area hair-free for six to eight weeks.
Laser Cliniqúe is the San Diego area choice for quality waxing. Waxing is the epilation or removing of hair. At a full-service med spa such as Laser Cliniqúe, you can treat yourself to a variety of waxing procedures. At home, you might choose to wax above the upper lip or sculpt your eyebrows with a home-waxing kit. However, choosing to have your waxing performed by a professional in a dermatologist office can be the better and safer option.
