Waxing during pregnancy – is it safe?

pregnancyPregnancy excites you. With a new baby coming, you don’t mind experiencing a lot of different changes, both physically and emotionally. Due to hormonal changes, you may experience a lot of unusual things like growing extra hair in unwanted places. It can be very embarrassing (to say the least), and you are looking for ways on how to get rid of it.

Hair growth on pregnant women

When you are pregnant, your active growth cycle lasts longer. Have you noticed how your hair seems to grow thicker and your hair loss is less? A thicker hair may sound really nice, but you should remember that it’s not only your head that grows hair. Excessive hair growth may occur in places where you don’t want it such as your armpits, legs and bikini line! While this new pattern of hair growth doesn’t last long, you should find a way to get rid of it. If you are bothered with your hair growth, have you considered waxing?

Waxing

This process is done by a professional to get rid of unwanted hair through waxing. The wax is spread on the desired area and removes it off in the opposite direction that the hair grows. While this process seems very promising on removing unwanted hair, many women are wondering if they can still have waxing when they are pregnant.

Is waxing safe for pregnant women?

Getting waxed when you are pregnant is considered safe. However, there are certain precautions you should be aware of. Make sure you ask your doctor first because you might have little tolerance for pain. Make sure too that you choose an experienced and licensed professional. Waxing is safe for pregnant women but pregnant or not, skin with the following conditions should not be waxed:

  • Rashes
  • Open cuts
  • Pimples
  • Warts
  • Moles
  • Areas where skin medication is applied
