Avatar f tn Yes you can get waxed although I've heard it hurts pretty bad especially with your sensitive skin during pregnancy.
Avatar f tn The reason for no is not to cause undue stress, and your skin will change during pregnancy which means you could be more sensitive then normal and react badly to the wax, plus you don't want to burn yourself possibly risk infection.
Avatar f tn I would do it! Lol After awhile shaving is no longer an option. My doc said hair growth (any or everywhere)doesn't bother them but that if it really bothers me, that she recommends waxing. A cold wax actually, with sugar beads or something like that. I'm dying to go buy one, I haven't gotten the chance.
Avatar f tn Hello I had to friends who wax there face at a salon , one had sensitive skin and the other normal skin .
Avatar f tn I suggest a different type of wax for sensitive skin. See what people don`t realize is that every individual has needs for different types of waxes... I sugest you to try www.belezawax.com they have a special line for sensitive skin... Check under facial wax Take care.

Avatar f tn Hello, If your skin is prone to folliculitis, then waxing will aggravate the condition. Folliculitis and ingrown hair are common even after waxing. If you still want to go in for Brazilian waxing ,then apply cold compresses(ice cubes wrapped in a towel) on the rash and take some antihistaminic like Benadryl or claritin. You can also apply calamine lotion on the rash.It will help in soothing the skin. A mild corticosteroid cream like dermacort will also help.
Avatar f tn Lol i know what I mean. I hate it so much I bought a fogless mirror from sallys just so I can see something my hubby is pointless bc hes too scared yet i shave his face and neck with a straight blade .
Avatar n tn I just recently got my face waxed two days ago. The girl who did my waxing burned some spots on my cheeks and now, for some reason, I woke up with red bumps on my cheeks. I was wondering if there's any way I can make these bumps and burn marks go away? And does anybody know how long these red bumps will stay on my face? Thank you.
121828 tn?1333468091 I am convinced that has to be the most sensitive place on the body, of course having someone do it may not be as bad, for all those that go for it, I say godspeed!!! its not for me!
Avatar n tn I think its likely I took some skin off, Il let the proffessionals do it next time! Thanks for the advice! I went to see my pharmacist and they gave me aloevera gel which has soothed it. I do have quite sensitive skin, but bleaching has always been fine for me in the past I am female and am quite young. I have been using a pescribed cream that contains peroxide too which may be something to do with it .
Avatar f tn Hi, Waxing is currently the most popular form of hair removal. It is observed that many people develop irritation and redness of skin soon after waxing. By keeping your skin cool with soothing lotion or aloe vera gel minimizes these effects. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar f tn Most of the red dots are smooth but very few have bumpy appearance.I do not have any ingrowns. My skin is sensitive and after waxing turns red for some hours. For the same condition my dermatologist prescribed Retino A 0.025% cream to be applied at night. I tried using this cream for few months with nill results. I want flawless skin please help. Thank you!

For these red dots my dermatologist prescribed Retino A 0.025% cream to be applied with equal amount of moisturiser at night. I tried using this cream for few months with nill results.

Avatar f tn I have really sensitive skin though. I ended up just shaving before my ob appt at 36w5d, I had him two days later so i ended up not needing to worry about it.
Avatar f tn (duration being 6 weeks apart from 1st to 3rd time as client comes every 3 weeks for waxing) any ideas as to what this could be? I have asked about medication/skin peels, or exfoliation creams, she is not using any of these. could it be hormonal?
228181 tn?1189949669 I'm sure by now your rash has gone but for the future use a hair removing cream for sensitive skin, the best ones come with a cream to apply afterwards to prevent irritation.

Avatar f tn Don't freak out the bumps will clear up. Waxing is harsh on the skin so try to use a cold compress and cool aloe Vera after it's done. When u rip the hair from the follicle it causes damage and stress to that area. Try the tweezing and the bleaching combo for unwanted hair because it sounds like u are sensitive like me. Ps if u are Mediterranean descent DO NOT USE A LAZER. It causes the hair to grow back worse unlike anyone will ever tell you. But it's true. Good luck I know the struggle.
Avatar f tn now i have some pimples but i have alot of brown spots? why did the waxing do this? is it because i have sensitive skin? it's been over 3 months and i still have them and im embrased of them and it is summer time .. so what should i do?
Avatar f tn I've done waxing all over on myself and my friends, never had that happen because I am careful not to pull 'up' on the strip but rather to the side so as not to irritate the skin. Who did the wax? It sounds like you had more than the first skin layer ripped off which would explain the coloration difference. I would put some light layer of vitamin E cream or even Vitamin E liquid (from actual vitamins) to speed healing cells.
Avatar n tn It could of also been that her skin was extra sensitive that day possobly from the way she washed her face and which products she used. You should have asked her what products she used that day or if she scrubbed her face. It's also quite possible that the wax clung on to a small piece of skin that when you went to pull off the strip it tore the skin with it.
Avatar f tn ) said that on some women it becomes more sensitive (read-- painful) when you're pregnant, but I don't think it would cause any harm to the baby.
Avatar n tn The wax went off too quickly. Using jel-formed wax made with health-providing results similar to Nair Shower Jel if wax still do that kind of situation.
Avatar f tn Got mine done today at 33+wks lol a tad uncomfy & sensitive but I can't see down there anymore & hubby won't do it as good lol If can will get done ONCE again at 37wks b4 baby due
Avatar f tn 38+1 and want to feel somewhat neat and tidy when I eventually go into labour. I've heard waxing during pregnancy is more painful. Does anyone have any first hand experience? I cant wait to be smooth.. I gave up trying to shave weeks ago haha (sorry tmi!
Avatar n tn If it is the client's responsibility to ensure the skin is tight, and the client lets loose of the skin, then the liability falls upon the client for any lacerations. We have well-trained and higly educated technicians at our spa who performs many spa duties. But, if it is done to a perfect art, it takes two to complete some services: the technician and the client.
Avatar m tn Using a new product may cause allergies in those with sensitive skin. You have already been taking treatment for your allergic rashes. These scars will eventually go away but scars can be unsightly and can affect a person’s level of self-confidence. With the use of specially designed treatments their appearance can be reduced. It is best to discuss it with your dermatologist. Only an examination can help in deciding what treatment is most suitable for you.
