What is waxing?
Waxing is the preferred choice for many men and women for the removal of unwanted hair. Waxing removes hair from the root, meaning that the results usually last longer than other methods of hair removal, such as shaving and plucking. Beauty Salons offer treatments ranging from leg and underarm waxing, to waxing of the face, bikini line and chest.
What is the procedure involved in being waxed?
There are several different ways for waxing to be carried out. There is a choice between hot wax and cold wax. Paper or cloth strips may be used to remove the wax, or a wax can be used that hardens on the skin and is removed by simply ‘pulling’ the wax away from the skin.
Whichever method is used, there is the possibility of injury if the procedure is not carried out correctly, or if a person suffers a reaction to the products used.
What are the risks of being waxed?
Problems which can arise include:-
- Allergic reactions to the wax or other chemicals used in the waxing process
- Burns to the skin if the wax applied is too hot
- Tearing of the skin, which can lead to infection
- Incompatibility with certain medications and conditions, causing an adverse reaction
If you are worried about any of these following a waxing treatment, the first thing you should do is visit your GP or hospital for advice and treatment. If you have suffered with any injury as a result of undergoing a waxing procedure, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
