Having body hair may be uncomfortable and unhygienic, yet not everyone wants hair removed with the use of laser or electrolysis. These procedures can be too much of a hassle for some people, especially those with active and on-the-go lifestyles. But these individuals can still have their body hair removed without doing it themselves. Dr. Russo and his associates can quickly remove unwanted hair from different parts of the body through waxing.

After the procedure, your skin will need some extra care. Here are some useful tips on caring for your skin after waxing:

Cool off

Your skin could still be extra sensitive after waxing, so it is best to steer clear from saunas, whirlpools, steam rooms, and the beach as the heat can cause your skin to burn faster than usual.

Stay clean at all costs

You have to protect the freshly waxed area in any way that you can – even by keeping it as clean and dirt-free as possible. Also, you have to avoid applying lotions, deodorant, perfumes, and gels on the treated site until the next day after the procedure.

Use effective skin care products

To keep the skin smooth and bump-free, you can apply after-wax lotions and allow your skin to exfoliate. There are a lot of helpful products that your doctor may recommend to you.
