The Dangers of DIY Hair Removal

FYBC 7:11.jpg

Maintaining your bikini line is just part of life. Not only is it annoying but it can be painful and tough to do. Although shaving or waxing in the comfort of your own home is cost effective, do you want to be taking the cheap route when it comes to your body?There are always ways to cut corners financially when it comes to beauty services, like giving yourself a manicure or highlighting a few strands yourself…but at home waxing can go horribly wrong if done incorrectly. If you are considering waxing your bikini area yourself this summer,  here are some reasons why you should leave it strictly to us.

Scarring – If you wax goes terribly wrong, for example, you tear the skin, you could scar. This is worst case scenario, but it happens more than you may think. Hot wax and tender skin are nothing to mess with.

Burns – Although you may have read up on the procedure and are being extra careful, waxing yourself is never a good idea. First of all, you are unable to see the entire area you are waxing…even with the help of a mirror. That means your placement of the wax is not going to be spot on. Because you don’t have the same vantage point as a professional would, there is room for error and burns.

Irritation & Infections – No matter how clean your home is, it will not be as sterile as our waxing studio. If you are waxing yourself in your bathroom or anywhere in your home for that matter, you are unintentionally exposing yourself to bacteria which can cause skin irritation and serious infection.

Leaving the waxing to our professionals is the best and safest bet. Our staff is professional and trained to help you feel confident and beautiful! If you are ready to get rid of unwanted hair in a quick and painless manner, book your next waxing session with Forever Young Body Clinic.
