Thanks for writing to us.
Doing epilation is likely to cause a lesser irritation as compared to waxing. The Kajoic acid cream that has been prescribed to you will help in lightening the spots. Avoid sun exposure to the area as much as possible.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
