But how safe is waxing?
If you are like some of the women, you may also itching to finally kick the routine task of shaving your armpits to death just to get rid of the hair. You may also think for other options to pick and there are many though, such as: laser removal, electrolysis, cold wax, hot wax, various creams and sugaring. Along with this different options and variety of devices seen on late-night infomercials being exercised or performed by women who has smooth and perfect skin.
Unlike of these mentioned options, waxing has been around since the start. It will really be easy for you to find a salon that offers a waxing service and there are also many brands of DIY products at the drugstore that you can include to your choices. Above all of this, you may wonder if waxing is even safe—after all, you are pulling and ripping off the unwanted hairs out of your sensitive (or not) underarm skin.
If there are good points in waxing, it also have a downsides, it includes minor bleeding, bruising. When you are ripping the hair out of your skin (specifically your underarm), is just the same as removing a thin layer of your skin. And with this, there is a possibility that the skin will be very vulnerable to infection and irritation.
There is also a possibility that you can get and experience minor burns if the wax is just too hot for your skin, and most of the people finds that overtime, but if keeps on waxing it every time, it can cause your skin to lose its elasticity and it may darken your skin.
Careful for the salons that are using reused wax cause it can cause some risks of infections. There are some of them that often use reheat wax and apply it multiple times to different clients, and if a piece of skin gets into the wax, the wax can harbor germs and pass it to the next client. If you want to be extra safe, ask the salon owner for a fresh and unused batch of wax.
But overall, underarm waxing is the more accurate and most relatively safe method of hair removal among all that is also suggestion by most of the people.
