There are many medications that affect skin and skin integrity (glycolic acid, lactic acid, benzyl peroxide, salicylic acid, alpha hydroxyl acid, vitamin A, prescribed exfoliating scrubs, antibiotics, hormonal medications, radiation and/or chemotherapy drugs). Please consult with your physician in regards to any medications and how it may affect your waxing experience. Some brand names to be aware of: Adapalene, Avita, Tazorac Avage, Proactiv(e), Differin, Strivectin. These medications increase the rate at which your skin exfoliates so waxing could potentially remove skin as well as hair. Please let your Esthetician know immediately if you are on any of these medications. Also be aware that chemical peels, laser, and micro-dermabrasion can also affect skin integrity.
