Printer Friendly, PDF & Email

Waxing can draw blood and body fluid from the skin. If this occurs, there is a potential to transmit viral, bacterial, and fungal infections
between the technician and the client, as well as between clients.

Folliculitis (infection of the hair follicle), irritant dermatitis, contact dermatitis, and general skin irritation can also occur.

These health risks can be minimized by using proper infection control techniques and hygiene procedures.
