Warning & Disclaimer
There are some people –and some situations - when waxing should be avoided completely. These are:
*IF you have DIABETES. People with diabetes can be much more susceptible to infection than others. Ask your GP if you are concerned, and avoid waxing completely on the leg area if you have any diabetes-related foot or leg condition.
*IF you are taking certain acne medications. Taking acne medications such as TRETINOIN and ACCUTANEcan be dangerous if waxing, and good salons will not allow people on such medications to have any waxing treatments at all. Keep in mind that acne medication can stay in your system for three months to a year after you stop using it.
*IF you have a bad sunburn. Wait until it clears up completely, or you – and your skin – may regret having that wax.
*IF you have lots of moles. Ask your dermatologist or GP first and never wax over a mole that is raised.
*IF you are in between laser hair removal treatments. Waxing in between can interfere with laser hair removal.
*When you are menstruating. Many women are much more sensitive to pain when they are menstruating. It might be a good idea to wait about a week after your period ends before waxing.
