Brazilian Risk Factors: What You Need to Know.

In 2009, the state of NJ considered banning the Brazilian wax after two women reported injuries associated with the procedure.  The statewide debate raised many questions on the safety of Brazilian waxing.  The truth of the matter is that like most delicate procedures, the Brazilian wax is very safe when performed by a licensed and highly experienced expert.  In the hands of the wrong person, the Brazilian wax, and any wax for that matter, can be very dangerous.

Side Effects of Waxing

Waxing can sometimes produce serious side effects, especially on sensitive skins and in certain medical conditions.  This is why it is crucial that you ONLY visit a reputable, licensed facility with highly trained wax experts.

In highly sensitive skin types, waxing can cause irritation, minor bleeding and development of pustules.  Less serious side effects of waxing include minor inflammation that goes away within a few hours and ingrown hairs.

More serious side effects can occur at the hand of an untrained professional.  Skin burns may occur if the wax is overly heated.  Individuals with very sensitive skin, or those who are on certain medications that cause skin sensitivity (Retin-A) can experience serious tearing of the skin during waxing. It’s important that your wax professional asks detailed questions about your past and current medical history and prescription medications.

Folliculitis is another side effect of waxing, which is characterized by the inflammation and infection of the hair follicles and may require medical treatment. Using anti-septic to clean the area after waxing can help prevent infections like these from happening.

Waxing is especially not recommended for patients of diabetes or people afflicted by varicose veins, as it can cause serious infections. A trained wax professional will ask these questions or have you complete a thorough intake form before your appointment to ensure your safety.

Waxing cannot be performed on chapped or broken skin, or areas with pimples, moles or rashes. People on certain medications like Retin-A, Renova, Differin or Isotretinoin, should also avoid waxing.

The moral of the story; find a highly trained, highly recommended wax professional that works in a clean, professional and licensed facility.  Sometimes we get caught up in the price of our grooming services.  Although price is important, no bargain is worth your safety, health and wellbeing.  Remember, in most cases, you get what you pay for.  Don’t just shop the best price, shop the best ‘expert’.

Finding the best Brazilian Wax Expert

You’ll want to perform a thorough ‘interview’ with your spa before you book your appointment. It’s important to ask questions such as how long has a particular technician been performing the Brazilian wax and is this one of their specialties.  You don’t want just anyone performing this delicate procedure. It can take years of practice to ace the Brazilian, and believe me; a well trained wax expert is definitely worth driving the few extra miles.

Another option is to go off of a referral from a friend or co-worker.  Chances are if this person is satisfied with a particular technician, you will be as well.  You can also perform a Google search for a particular spa or technician and see if any positive reviews were written online.
