Wright & McGurk, a personal injury law firm based in Irvine, California, is warning at-home waxers that these kits are dangerous.
Users have reported that the wax “explodes” and scatters across their skin. Victims alleged that despite following the packaged instructions closely, the wax was too hot, and exploded on them. A ring formed around the top of the microwavable wax. After taking the wax out of the microwave, waxers would have to prod the wax in order to use it. When they did this, however, the outcome was dangerous and potentially scarring.
Some consumers have experienced severe burns on their arms, face, and body.
Have you used these wax kits? What was your experience? If you experienced scarring, it might be best to contact an attorney.
