Does waxing cause skin ageing?

I recently read an article which said that waxing the upper lip can cause the skin to lose its elasticity and age prematurely. Does anyone know if this is true?

well have you heard about lunatips. it’s waxing as well as skin care calender solution. apparently you just remove hair and incase of skin care apply cream on particular days and it works wonder.i havnt tried but that’s because their website does not have my country on their credit card payment list which is not fair

I am not sure how true that is, but I have heard my aunts tell me the same when I started waxing my upper lip after high school [17]. I thought they said that so that I do not get into all the looks business!!! I am 30 now, and I have not noticed any changes in my upper lip skin!

I would`nt recommend waxing any area of your face as your skin on this area is very sensitive.

Waxing on your face can cause the skin to sag and wrinkle as it removes a layer of skin. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ooo.gif" alt="" />
