During the treatment program there will be times when the client wishes to remove hairs while waiting for the next appointment, especially if the skin healing time necessitates well-spaced bookings. The only permissible method is cutting. Any other methods will affect the bulb or the skin. It is possible to cut the hairs close to the skin using a small curved pair of nail scissors. If the client is doubtful about this method, explain the consequences of not following this advice.
