Does Waxing Cause Wrinkles?

Many times competitors in the same field will say something long enough that people will begin to believe what they say is fact and repeat to others. Such is the case with hair removal. I don’t know where this came from or who began to say that waxing causes wrinkles but it is simply untrue and there is no scientific proof that it does.  Sources: Medical NewsWomen’s Health, Miss Humphrey’s Myths about waxing.

Plainly put, waxing does not cause wrinkles. When people claim that it does, the myth is that by pulling on the skin when the waxing strips are removed, it stretches out the skin and, eventually, it doesn’t bounce back. However, as is cited above, skin wrinkles when the cells break down. Stretching the skin does not destroy the integrity of the cells. Nor does the wax break down the skin cells. It is a completely safe procedure. If you have sensitive skin, waxing may cause a rash, but it will not cause wrinkles!
