How to Minimize Waxing Side Effects from Bikini Waxing, XX and XXX

Posted on 18 July, 2015 at 22:10

Because people with weakened immune systems, such as those with diabetes, HIV/AIDS or other immuno-compromising diseases and people who have chronic kidney or liver disease, or skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis are more susceptible to complications, dermatologists recommend that they not get bikini and Brazilian waxes. This treatment can pull off tiny pieces of the skin's outermost layer, creating a portal through which bacteria can enter the body.What's more, the process could create inflammation, which can trap bacteria beneath the skin. For most others, the risk is minimal but while a serious infection is unlikely, you could develop less severe complications like a scarring, folliculitis or ingrown hairs. If you notice signs of skin irritation, monitor yourself and head to the doctor to check on anything that doesn't clear up quickly.

Now that you have the scoop on bikini and XXX waxing, it’s basically up to you to decide if the potential benefits outweigh the risks. Of course, many people regularly get Brazilian waxes and never have any negative experiences. It's up to you to understand the risks and decide if this approach is right for you.

Read on for much more information.

If a bikini wax or XXX is one of your essential skin care treatments, then you need to know what to you do before and after your treatment to greatly impact your results.

 

Choose a facility carefully.

Before you make an appointment, drop by to see how clean the place is, or ask a friend to recommend a salon she/he trusts. Be sure the Beauty Therapist or aesthetician you choose is licensed by your state and has received training in Brazilian waxing.

Ask about the wax.

Hard wax is best. It's gentler and adheres to the hair, not the skin. Look for products that are chemical-free, contains nothing but sugar, water, lemon juice, and glycerin.

Keep an eye on hygiene.

Before beginning the process, the practitioner should scrub up or (at least) apply hand sanitizer. Double dipping into the wax is taboo because it introduces bacteria into the pot. The waxer should have brand-new spatulas available for each swipe to your skin.To prevent burns, she/he should check the wax's temperature on the inside of her wrist before applying it to your skin. If you don't see the practitioner taking these steps, speak up!

 

The most common side effects in these treatments are:

- redness and inflammation of the waxed skin

- pain

- post-waxing bumps, pimples, and ingrown hairs

 

Anyone receiving this specific treatment is at risk of these side effects. You’re especially at risk if you’re new to waxing or don’t receive regular waxing, because you have denser hair growth in the treatment area. Plus, regular bikini waxing helps to condition your skin as well as the hair follicle, making the common side effects much less common.

Make your next treatment a more tolerable experience by following these easy steps. These are some of the most effective solutions:

Steps you can take to help prevent many of the uncomfortable side effects of bikini waxing:

• Gently exfoliate the area to remove dead skin cells that can block the skin pore and hair follicle.

• Apply warm compress to the area to help relax the skin pore and hair follicle, aiding in easier hair removal.

• Trim the hair in the area to ½ cm. The shorter the hair the less painful the removal, besides ½ cm. is the perfect waxing length.

• Avoid stimulants such as caffeine two hours prior to waxing, as this can make you and your skin more sensitive. Instead drink water to help hydrate your body.

• Most importantly - try to relax your body and mind as much as possible. Tensing up will only increase the pain you may feel.

 

Post treatment tips to help prevent the common side effects and help your skin heal quickly:

 

• Avoid touching the area for 24 hours and wear loose fitting clothing.

• Avoid Jacuzzis, swimming pools, saunas, or hot showers for 24 hours to reduce the chance of irritation or for bacteria to enter the area.

• Avoid exercising for 24 hours to minimize redness and irritation.

• Apply a cool compress and a few drops of lavender essential oil, witch hazel, or alcohol-free toner to reduce redness and inflammation and to help keep bacteria at bay.

• 24 hours after waxing gently exfoliate the area where the hair was removed. Do that every couple of days to help prevent ingrown hairs.

• Prevent irritation

For a few days following your wax, apply an over-the-counter topical antibiotic cream and an anti-inflammatory 1% hydrocortisone cream to the area. This will ease irritation and help ward off potential infection.

• Know the signs of infection

Check yourself with a hand mirror (look for inflamed ingrown hairs, rashes, or raw, open sores or cuts). See a doctor ASAP if you develop redness or swelling in the area, an itching or burning sensation, peeling of the skin, or a fever.
