Depilatory Methods for Diabetics
Waxing for people with diabetes can be tricky. This is mainly because diabetics have sensitive skin and are usually prone to injury and infection, which requires them to be more careful with the waxing method they choose.
Below you will find information about the several hair removal methods each with their pros and cons.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL
The laser is undoubtedly the new trend of hair removal, but there are some significant side effects that diabetics should pay attention before deciding to opt for this method.
This hair removal method involves the removal of the entire hair from the root, but the swollen and empty follicles may be more prone to infections.
The razor cuts the hair at the skin level. As expected, there is an increased risk of injury and a higher risk of infection.
HAIR REMOVAL CREAM
According to research people with diabetes have an increased skin sensitivity to harsh chemicals contained in the depilatory cream. Please consult with your dermatologist if it is safe to use.
HAIR REMOVAL WITH WARM WAX
The depilation method with hot wax is not suitable for people suffering from diabetes.
READY TO USE WAX STRIPS
The application of cold strips is considered the safest method of hair removal, as there is no risk of burning, injury, and contains natural ingredients. Specifically, Karaver Velvet Sensitive Strips are easy to use, cause less pain and are suitable for sensitive skin. They contain natural extracts of Chamomile, natural grapeseed oil, natural beeswax and Vitamin E. They are made of special non-woven hypo-allergenic fabric and are accompanied by three after waxing Azulene Oil tissues.
TO SUM UP
People with diabetes need to be more careful as to which depilation method they choose. The sensitivity of their skin makes them more vulnerable to injury and infection. For this reason, Karaver proposes Velvet Sensitive as a safer way to wax.
Before using any of the waxing methods above, we advise you to consult a dermatologist and discuss your options.
