Hair Removal Treatments Can Lead to Breakouts

Hair Removal Treatments Can Lead to Breakouts

Posted in Uncategorized by Clear Clinic. | Leave a Comment
We have heard many complaints from patients that facial hair removal treatments, such as threading, plucking and waxing, can lead to acne breakouts afterwards. The most common sort of breakout is little white bumps in the area that the hair was removed. The breakouts usually occur as a result of irritation from the hair removal process. This is very common and sometimes the breakouts subside after your skin gets used to the treatment. But nonetheless, there are ways that these breakouts can be lessened or even avoided. Here, our tips on how to leave your pimple-free post hair removal treatment:
  • Wash your face immediately following the hair removal treatment. The esthetician or whoever performed the treatment may have had bacteria on their hands.
  • Apply a cortisone treatment immediately following the treatment to soothe any irritation.
  • Say no if the esthetician offers to apply a cream after the treatment, as you don't know what ingredients are inside of it.
  • Do not try to pop the little whiteheads, as more damage can be done than good. Instead, pat them with a warm compress and use an acne-fighting cleanser after your treatment.
