Depending on density of the hair growth, some clients may experience a minor breakout due to the over abundance of oil being produced. Others may experience hives and itching, swelling or pustules. Remember, as the hair diminishes, the chance of these breakouts will diminish also.
Vellus hair ( peach fuzz) is a protective device used by the body to protect the skin. When this hair is extracted, every alarm in the nervous system is set off. The body produces histamines, which are responsible for itching, redness and swelling.
In addition, the body sends out white blood cells
to protect the follicle from infection, resulting in pustules.
It is important for you to realize that these break-outs are not product related or technique related. They are skin-related, and we have no control over how each individualís skin will react. You may want to take an antihistamine for allergic reaction. If you are unsure if you can take antihistamines, please contact your doctor.
AFTER TREATMENT ADVICE:
Due to excessive blood flow to the treated areas, some clientís skin will look pink and feel hot and/or itchy immediately after treatment. Others may take a longer time to react, or not react at all. These reactions are normal as long as the redness disappears with an hour.
Treatment Advice for Redness & Itchy Skin
Due to a build-up of dead skin cells formed over the mouth of the follicle, the new hair does not have the strength to push its way through the skinís surface. You may feel itchy and develop bumps. Clients with dry skin are more prone to this condition.
Treatment Advice for Ingrown Hairs:
DEPILAR SYSTEM: PERMANENT HAIR REMOVAL
In very rare cases a small local urticarial rash can result that will disappear within 48 hours. For clients sensitive to salicylic acid you should spot test before a full Depilar Systemô treatment.
