Is there any easy homemade oils that I can make for hair removal?

Best to discuss w/Dr: Home remedies are not always the best solution for hair removal, if you have sensitive skin, you may break out, have localized inflammatory response & depends where the hair is that you want removed.That will determine the best treatment.Face?Underarms?Legs? Bikini line? Need more info.There are creams, waxing, threading, electrolysis, laser options. Depends on thickness, budget, outcome desired. ...Read more

Folliculitis tx: It's helpful if shaving is done 3-4 days before laser hair removal. If pustules appear, acne medications may be helpful, such as a benzoyl peroxide wash. There should not be a lot of scrubbing as it may irritate hair follicles further. All benzoyl peroxide must be washed off the skin completely. There are also acne lotions that your doctor can prescribe to help. ...Read more

Not related: Your laser hair removal ; eye operation should have nothing to do (neither positive nor negative) about your ability to conceive. Now if you have abundant hair in wrong places (hirutism) which can be caused by systemic diseases(eg pcod, cushings, androgen secreting tumor, etc), you may have problems conceiving. If you had cataract removed, could have been caused by too much circulating cortisol. ...Read more

How did you...: remove the hair? Did you use a hair removing chemical? These are not to be used on the face, this my be why your face is red and swollen. If you had hair removal by a doctor, sometimes you will have redness and swelling for a few days. You should NOT be using fluocinolone on your face. Try cool compresses to reduce swelling, and a moisturizing lotion. See a doctor if no better in few days. ...Read more
