Waxing is one process that women have to endure to get rid of unwanted hair growth from their body. Nowadays, waxing is almost considered as part of personal hygiene. Uprooting hair—as done in waxing, epilating, threading or sugaring– from their follicles damages the follicles themselves. As a side effect, new hair strands come out in a fine thread or in lighter shade. It also aids to slower hair re-growth, thus there’s no need to pull and twitch for a long time. Additionally, oftentimes the hairs never sprout back at all!
So does waxing really reduce hair growth—yes or no? As honestly as anyone can get, the answer is both a yes and a no. The chances are both as you can also experience if you try waxing yourself. However, you must bear in mind that when you would want to try waxing for the first time, just be prepared of some little things. You must brave up minor bleeding and that burning feeling after waxing. The advantage though is a much better hygiene and a time management. You can get that clean and hassle-free feeling within a long gauge of time.
One more thing… Does waxing have other side effects aside from the stinging feeling and minor bleeding? There are cases when there are hair ingrown, bumps and pimples. Having some of these side effects are just normal most especially for women (or even men) with sensitive skin. The good news is there are ways to help yourself get at ease with these occurring dilemmas. A quick talk with an expert like a dermatologist will answer your questions.
