Interview with Dr. Nina Roos, dermatologist and member of the French Society of Dermatology.
Can repeated hair removal cause particular skin problems?
Regarding the traditional hair removal (ripping or razor, therefore), the hair follicle can sometimes get infected (folliculitis), or the regrowth can sometimes be done under the skin (pili incarnati). These little worries, if they are not serious, can be annoying ...
What diseases can contraindicate some hair removal techniques?
Diseases where the skin is not intact contraindicate
hair removal: no question of attacking skin already damaged by eczema, psoriasis thrust ... It is better to wait until the end of the push.
Is pregnancy a contraindication to certain hair removal techniques?
Some dermatologists contraindicate laser hair removal during pregnancy. This is a pure precaution, because we have no evidence, nor scientific arguments that can make us fear of malformations to the baby ... But sometimes the precautionary principle prevails.
On the subject of depilatory creams, there is in principle no contraindication. However, it is recommended that you read the product manual carefully, and if in doubt, call the manufacturer.
Otherwise, no problem for other traditional hair removal.
