Hair removal

I have a problem with hair removal.... Whenever I get my back and stomach waxed for one week the skin feels good but after one week I start getting pimples there and it takes months to get cured.... And using a razor gives me itchy skin.... What should I do or use??

Thanks for the query. This is a common phenomenon and is called Wax folliculitis. The best option is to consider laser hair reduction. Laser hair removal is a good option and is relatively painless. You must understand it requires multiple sessions,may he 6 or more to achieve a desired result. Each session can be performed at gap of 1-2 months depending on rate of hair growth. Maintenance laser session like once every year may then be needed. Charges vary depending on laser machine used and should be around Rs 5000- 6000 for a single session . Hope it helps
