Reducing Ingrown Hairs with Azelaic Acid
Ingrown hairs are an issue for a lot of people. Not only can they be uncomfortable, but when picked at, they can leave spots of hyperpigmentation.
I want to introduce all of the waxing estheticians to after-wax protocol that will help reduce both ingrowns, and hyperpigmentation.
Zena's 20% Azelaic Peel is a gentle exfoliating treatment, that is similar to an active toner. It can be applied after waxing to areas that are prone to ingrown hairs.
How it works
Azelaic Acid is a naturally occurring acid found in grains. It is a chemical exfoliant that is highly anti-inflammatory, and has antibacterial properties. It does a great job at removing follicle-blocking substances while accelerating cell turn over, leading to less ingrown hairs.
Zena's Azelaic is a pH 4, making it super gentle to use on all areas of the body.
How to use it
Zena's Azelaic should be applied in one layer after waxing and should be left on the skin. It can also be used at the end of a facial, as a toner, to reduce inflammation due to acne and rosacea.
If you're not very familiar with chemical peels, we have a Zena certification course that can be taken online, anytime! This will introduce you to peels such as Azelaic, Mandelic, Glycolic, Salicylic Acid, Lactic, TCA and Jessner!
