These options aren’t always available to those with sensitive skin. Waxing is a great way to get rid of hair for an extended period of time. As with any procedure, however, waxing has some side effects.
Waxing is one of the safest ways of going hairless. Redness, burning and irritation has been reported. Applying a cold compress or ice pack to the affected area can provide relief. Waxing can also cause wrinkles to appear sooner due to a loss of elasticity in the skin. Infections, ingrown hairs and allergic reactions are also known side effects.
To reduce or avoid waxing side effects, stay out of the sun for a full day beforehand. Make sure your skin is completely dry and free from sunburns, scrapes, wounds, or any other irritation
