Skin damage caused by repeated plucking and tweezing

For many people, tweezing and plucking are part of their beauty routine to control excess and unwanted facial hair. Long-term and repeated tweezing and plucking lead to faster regrowth of most hairs, as well as making them darker, coarser, and more firmly rooted. Tweezing and plucking stimulate the growth of additional blood capillaries around the hair follicles, increasing the thickness and strength of the regrowing hair. This can also darken the hair and raise the risk of follicle irritations and infections, which can result in pitting and scarring.

Plucking, tweezing, and waxing can cause breakouts on or between your eyebrows. Manipulating the hair follicles can lead to folliculitis, an infection of the hair follicle. In some cases, plucking and tweezing can cause acne to flare up as the skin surrounding the hair follicles becomes more inflamed.

Over time, regular and excessive plucking can scar and irritate the delicate skin of the face, affecting not only the skin surface but also the underlying layers and the follicles.

Therefore, tweezing actually exacerbates hair problems rather than solving them.
