Had to share this story about a lovely young lady who rang for some advice.
She had gone to a beauty salon for her Brazilian wax. A life long dedicated waxer she knew what she liked. She specifically asked for hot wax not strip wax . But the therapist proceeded to use strip wax and was insistent it was fine. Weeks later she was horrified but not surprized when she developed horrendous ingrowns. The therapist should have listened to the client especially if had a history of ingrown after strip waxing.
If that wasn't bad enough she was then told by another salon to use sudocream on the unhealed areas.
She came to CHANGES. On examination she had copious ingrown hairs, not helped by the sticking and moisturizing of the cream. Skin/ follicle will not heal if it has a hair still trapped inside.
We hygienically removed the ingrown hairs and gave her a product called follisan which helps exfoliate around the follicle so the hair can escape when regrows. Following up a few days later skin much improved and healing well. We also recommend IPL perfect solution.
