Lately, there has been a growing trend to wax facial hair in women. To achieve a cleaner and more beautiful appearance, women tend to have unwanted hair removed from their face, which usually grows near the eyebrows, fluffy areas of the cheeks and upper lip.
However, our face is one of the most sensitive parts of the body and waxing hair can have its drawbacks. According to cosmetologist Dr. Geetika Mittal Gupta, facial waxing is not the right method to remove hair. “If you’re waxing your face, stop now,” she wrote on Instagram, advising against the popular procedure. https://www.instagram.com/p/CcXlwCKAXMc/
The doctor shared a video of a facial waxing procedure, highlighting how painful it can be. “I don’t know why anyone would want to wax their face,” said Dr. geetika.
She has told that the procedure is not only painful but can also lead to side effects.
She also listed some problems that can be caused by facial waxing. Blisters, rashes and allergic reactions are some of them.
In addition, claimed Dr. Geetika that the process can also cause ingrown hairs and sometimes even bleeding.
In addition, according to Dr. Geetika, as the skin is excessively pulled during waxing, lead to premature aging.
In addition to the video, Dr. Geetika also three reasons why she proposes to abolish facial waxing.
dr. Geetika wrote that every time a person waxes, a layer of skin is torn off. While this may not be problematic, it can lead to sunburned and rough skin if done regularly, such as once every 15 days.
After the skin is removed during waxing, applying facial products can be painful for the individual.
For those with dry or sensitive skin, waxing their face can exacerbate the problems due to the abrasive nature of the wax.
Although Dr. Urging not to wax the face, Geetika also shared some alternatives to the procedure or safer hair removal treatments. She said people with fine hair like peach fuzz can go for dermaplaning which uses a fine razor blade to remove the hair.
People can also opt for laser bleaching where the hairs are not removed, but bleached.
