I got my eyebrow waxed on sunday and woke up with little red bumps on the spots where i got waxed so it looks really weird. Anyone get these and have any suggestions on getting rid of the fast...because im really hoping they just go away.

That also happened to me the first few times I had my brows waxed. I think it was just because my skin wasn't used to it. I put a little aloe vera gel on them and they were gone in a couple days.

Hi, Once your brow has been waxed, and the residue has been removed, the specialist should apply a cooling gel to the area to help with the redness and bumps.

It just happens the first couple of times you wax. It happened to me..and the worst was waxing my upper lip...that one looked even more horrible. But it doesn't happen anymore. Just maybe the first 2 times.

Confidence - wear it like makeup!

If you are using a retinoid product like Retin A or are on Accutane, waxing can burn the skin and leave it red and raw (with bumps maybe). Kaville's advice is good about applying aloe vera gel.

it's because they put on some cream over where they waxed after just ripping hair out of the pores. it cloggs and causes the bumps, i dont mean to worry you but mine too months to completely go away..they died down alot obviously buyt to completely go away..took a while

You could crush up an aspirin and carefully apply it to the area and wipe it away with damp fingers before the little grains fall anywhere near your eye. It works on razor bumps and ingrown hairs.

Hi,

Regarding the use of Retin A, Accutane or their generic substitutes, here's some additional info:

Accutance or its generic substitute: No waxing for at least 9 mths to a year after you have stopped taking the product.

Retin A or its generic substitute: No waxing for at least 2 weeks after you have stopped taking the product.

Witch hazel! The lady who does my eyebrows uses it on me all the time, and I've never had to worry about breaking out after an appointment. (I have acne-prone skin.)

hydrocortisone. A tiny tiny little bit after waxing and the area should be smooth and bump free

Lavender oil helps. Sometimes I mix it with aloe gel, other times I just put it on neat.

Try aloe vera gel or hydrocortisone. Witch Hazel if you have oily skin.

I had that when I had my eyebrows waxed but also swollen eyebrows and really dry skin (the wax was too hot) but I found a wipe of TCP (either diluted if you haven't used it before or neat if you know what to expect!), although painful when applied, it really helps especially as it fights infection, is good for spots and numbs the area. Once applied the area will go redder for a short time (usually a few minutes) and then disappears leaving only a slight 'TCP' smell. Use it before bed for a few nights and it should really help

It's good to put Desitine, like baby diaper rash cream, on it because it calms the skins since it's soo agitated.
