Q: Is waxing safe for the face?
While shaving facial hair makes the hair that grows back thicker, waxing uproots the shaft of the hair. That means the hair will grow back smooth. 

Q: How long is waxing good for?
A: Waxing can last for about 2-6 weeks depending on your natural hair, if you are taking any vitamins or medication. 

Q: Can you wax your beard?
A: Stop shaving your facial hair for one to two weeks and let it grow about 1/4 inch in length before waxing.

Q: Will I get red after waxing?
A: When you remove hair from under skin, there is a chance you will wind up with some skin irritation. Some may get red for a few minutes and others may get red for 12 hours. If you have never been waxed before, please give some time to recuperate.  

Q: How can I tell if I'm having a bad reaction?
A: A little redness and irritation is normal but if you are noticing little pimples or pus-filled bumps around the waxed area, you could be experiencing folliculitis (inflammation of the hair follicles). Folliculitis can occur simply from the trauma of waxing.

If you see a significant amount of redness, swelling and pain - this is a good indicator that you may be allergic to the wax. If it doesn't go away on its own, you may need topical medication or even oral meds. Go and see a doctor as soon as you can.
