Facial Waxing Side Effects

  • Redness & Irritation: Facial waxing can cause mild redness, sensitivity, and irritation around the applied area for up to 24 hours.

  • Temporary Bumps: Bumps can develop on top of the pores where the hair was removed for up to a few hours.

  • Ingrown Hairs: While you have a lower risk of ingrown hairs with waxing, the chances are still possible if the hairs aren’t fully removed from their follicles.

  • Allergic Reactions: Depending on the individual, it’s possible to have an allergic reaction to some waxing products used by salons. 

  • Rashes: Redness and irritation is common with any kind of waxing, but if the symptoms develop into a rash within a couple of days, care for it accordingly immediately.

  • Sun Sensitivity: Applying fresh wax before or after a sunburn is not advised. A layer of your skin is lifted with waxing, which can lead to even more irritation if you’re experiencing sunburn.  

  • Bleeding: Waxing may cause mild bleeding because of the extra layer of skin getting pulled. There should only be small amounts of bleeding and it shouldn’t last long.


Facial Waxing Aftercare



  • Gently exfoliate the skin a few days after getting a wax,

  • Keep your face moisturized,

  • Apply any facial products on soft applicators, sponges, and cotton pads.




  • No UV exposure over the waxed area for at least 48 hours!

  • To avoid infection, no touching the waxed area with your fingers,

  • No exercise for 48 hours after your treatment because sweating can cause infection,
