Having hairy legs, underarms, an upper lip, and a bikini area are not things that any woman wants to have. However, if you have been putting off getting professionally waxed for fear of things like the health of your skin and the prospect of your hair growing back faster, you may be more gullible than you realized. This article will debunk four common myths associated with waxing. Read on to learn more.
Your Hair Will Grow Back Thicker
One thing that prevents many patients from coming into get professionally waxed is that they think that the more they wax their hair, the thicker and darker it will grow back. However, this simply is not true. In fact, your hair will start coming in a bit more finer the longer that you get waxed.
You Can’t Get Waxed While Menstruating
If you are getting a Brazilian or bikini wax, you may have heard that you can’t get it done while you are on your period, but that is so false. It is true that your skin will be more sensitive while you are on your period, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get waxed. In fact, our aestheticians will be happy to wax you just as long as you feel comfortable.
It’s Bad For Your Skin
You may have heard that if you get your skin waxed you can permanently damage it. However, when you’re waxed by the professionals at Twin City Plastic Surgery, you won’t have to worry about getting any skin damage. Although some patients may experience some skin irritation like redness afterward, it should subside after just a few hours.
You Can’t Exfoliate Before
If you have heard that you can’t exfoliate your skin before you get waxed, that is simply not the case. In fact, we encourage our patients to exfoliate before they come into get waxed to get rid of dead skin and ingrown hairs. When exfoliating, make sure to do it while in a hot shower or bath to help your pores open up.
Just like with anything regarding your skin, it’s good to know what things are real and what things are false. To learn more about waxing or to schedule your appointment, contact the team at Twin City Plastic Surgery Center.
