Take Care of Varicose Veins Before Waxing your Legs

Updated on: August 18, 2014
Have you ever taken a close look at the instructions on your home leg waxing kit? Hopefully you only tried the home wax once anyway since it's much better to go to a professional for things like that. But when you did, if you read the details before applying the wax, you might have noticed that it tells you not to use the wax if you have varicose veins. Maybe at the time, you didn't think twice about it because you didn't have varicose veins. But as you start to get older, varicose veins may begin to appear in your legs. When women start to find themselves nearing menopause, they may notice numerous changes in the body which can include these unsightly veins. Don't worry. You don't have to put your feet up, throw in the towel and commit yourself to having un-sexy, un-waxed legs for the rest of your life. You simply need to take some measures to get rid of the varicose veins before you go ahead and continue waxing those babies. Make sure that you discuss waxing with the doctor that does your vein treatment. You should find out how long to wait before waxing again. The main reason that the warning is in place is because varicose veins make legs more prone to infection caused by waxing. You don't want to make the appearance of your legs worse so follow doctor's orders. photo link
