The research didn’t find evidence that waxing causes STIs, just that small tears below the belt (whether brought on by WAXING, SHAVING, or even SEX), could make transmission of viruses easier to enter the body. So, if you are worried about your hair removal making you more vulnerable to infection, DON’T HAVE SEX if your skin is IRRITATED from having a wax. Doctors recommend waiting at least a day after waxing before you get JIGGY with it! This should be enough time for a typical irritation to calm down, and pores to close. But if you still notice any TEARS, BLEEDING, or REDNESS, Hold off.

Waxing is a popular hair removal method, but it’s not uncommon for people to have questions about its safety and potential side effects. Some of these questions and concerns may seem strange, and in fact, some are outright myths. Here are a few waxing myths to re-consider.
Myth 1: Waxing Causes Thrush
Thrush is a type of yeast infection that can affect various parts of the body, including the mouth and genital area. Some people believe that waxing can cause thrush in the genital area because it removes hair that acts as a barrier against bacteria and other microorganisms. However, this is a myth. While it’s true that pubic hair can help protect against certain infections, removing it does not cause thrush. Thrush is typically caused by an overgrowth of Candida, a type of yeast that naturally occurs in the body.
Myth 2: Waxing Causes Skin to Sag
Another myth about waxing is that it can cause the skin to sag over time. Some people believe that repeatedly pulling the skin during waxing can cause it to lose its elasticity, leading to sagging and wrinkles. However, this is not true. Waxing does not damage the skin or its underlying structures, and it does not cause the skin to sag. In fact, many people find that waxing actually helps improve the appearance of their skin by removing dead skin cells and promoting cell turnover.
Myth 3: Waxing Causes Hair to Grow Back Thicker and Darker
One of the most persistent waxing myths is that it causes hair to grow back thicker and darker over time. Some people believe that the repeated trauma of waxing stimulates hair follicles to produce thicker and darker hair. However, this is not true. Waxing only removes hair from the surface of the skin, and it does not affect the structure or colour of the hair or the hair follicle. Hair may appear thicker or darker after waxing simply because it is shorter and has a blunt end, but this is a temporary effect.
Myth 4: Waxing is Painful and Dangerous
While waxing may be uncomfortable, especially for those with sensitive skin, it is not dangerous. When done correctly, waxing is a safe and effective way to remove unwanted hair from the body. The pain associated with waxing is temporary and can be managed with over-the-counter pain relief medication, and many people find that the benefits of smooth, hair-free skin are worth the discomfort.
In conclusion, while waxing may not be everyone’s preferred hair removal method, it is generally safe and effective. Some of the myths surrounding waxing are simply that, myths. Waxing does not cause thrush, skin to sag, hair to grow back thicker and darker or pose any significant danger to the individual undergoing the procedure. It’s always best to consult with a trained Brazilian butterfly therapist before any waxing session, as they can offer advice and answer any questions or concerns about the procedure.
