There are many treatments that can be used to remove unwanted hairs. From the most common, like shaving and waxing to pulse light technology. But there are some disadvantages from the manual procedures :
o Loss of Skin Suppleness and Elasticity: This one of the long term waxing side effect. It is observed that skin losses its elasticity and suppleness due to regular and prolonged use waxing. This generally occurs because of the ripping off the applied wax used during waxing.
o Wrinkle Formation: The second commonly observed long term waxing side effect. Regular waxing increases the risk of wrinkle formation. As the skin tends to loose its elasticity and suppleness gradually it develops wrinkles.
o Irritation and Redness: This is one of most commonly seen side effect associated with waxing and shaving.
o Skin Rashes, Reddish Bumps and Slight Subcutaneous Bleeding
o Skin Darkening and Burns: When waxing is done with overheated wax it may result in skin darkening and burns. Application of overheated wax may result in reddish brown spots. These spots appear as a result of post-inflammatory pigmentation. Mainly depending of the type of skin it might take a week to 1 year for pigmentation to fade out.
o Skin Infection: This waxing side effect mainly appears due to the application of infected or unclean products for the procedure.
o Allergic Reactions: Allergic reactions may include severe skin rash to folliculitis.
o The regrowth hair usually become more rough and thicker
