  • I wouldn't think so. To the best of my knowledge it is an STD.

  • you can get hpv from anywhere... planters warts are a form of HPV..
    however, to get the more serious kinds of HPV it's highly unlikely to get the sexually transmitted forms of it through waxing. why? because for one.. we swap out application sticks and/or sanitize them. the strips are only used on you.. and typically the wax is too hot to allow the virus to remain alive. Basically unless you go to a really disgusting place that doesn't follow the laws about cleanliness, you should have no issues. Even then, the chances of contracting are extremely low.

  • however.. if they are that dirty, and don't even wash their hands, and say use the same hand right after giving someone else a wax.. regardless of what you get done.. brows or bikini, you do have a chance of it getting into any area you bleed from. (although like I said, the chances of it are sooo low it's really highly unlikely. )

  • They say DOUBLE DIPPING of the wax is what gives women herpes and HPV.
