Will depilation cream have side effects

Hair removal cream is easy to cause allergy

As a temporary hair removal method, the simplicity of hair removal cream has been recognized by many people. When in use, just squeeze some on the needed part and scrape it with a hard object in the opposite direction after a while, and the body hair will fall off.

However, although the depilation cream is convenient and painless, it can’t uproot the hair, so the effect can only last for about a week.

Depilatory creams are mostly alkaline preparations, while human skin is weakly acidic. Therefore, under the stimulation of depilatory creams, the skin may appear redness, pain, dryness and even peeling. However, not everyone will use hair removal cream. Once you feel unwell, stop using hair removal cream immediately.

Experts remind that before using depilatory cream, local tests must be done to prevent allergies. In addition, women should not use hair removal cream in physiological period.

Depilatory wax can cause folliculitis

The chemically synthesized depilatory wax is easy to cause irritation to the skin. When torn down, the body hair is easy to stay in a part of the pores, and half of the broken hair ends are very easy to penetrate into the hair follicles, causing folliculitis. Therefore, special attention should be paid to cleaning and care after hair removal.

Electric hair remover will inevitably feel pain

Now there are many brands of electric hair removers available on the market. This hair remover is generally a wheel clamping electric device, which is fast and long-lasting, and the effect can generally last for 2 to 3 weeks.

However, compared with painless depilatory cream, the depilator still hurts a little. In addition, Su Mingshan pointed out that the use of electric hair remover can also cause folliculitis.

Permanent hair removal is not done at one time

In order to achieve the goal of once and for all, now many people will choose permanent hair removal. At present, laser hair removal or photon hair removal is to achieve the purpose of permanent hair removal by destroying hair follicles.

When choosing permanent hair removal, some people think that one time can achieve satisfactory results. In fact, this is not the case.

Experts point out that one treatment cannot be permanent. Because there are three periods of hair growth: growth, quiescence and degeneration. Only when the hair follicle is in the growth stage can there be a large number of pigment particles in the hair follicle and absorb a large amount of laser energy. Therefore, the laser has an obvious therapeutic effect on the hair in the growth stage, while there are relatively few hair pigments in the degenerative and quiescent stages, and the laser effect is relatively weak, For this part of hair, it is necessary to wait until they slowly change to the growth period before laser removal. Therefore, laser hair removal treatment can not be successful at one time. It usually requires multiple continuous irradiation (the interval between two treatments is about 6-8 weeks) to achieve the desired effect.
