Background: Cosmetic procedures are on the rise and practiced by all age groups, especially by teenagers. These procedures enhance the individual appearance and confidence levels, but they are not without side effects. Aims and Objectives: The aim of this study was to evaluate the side effects occurring after various parlor procedures such as facials, threading, waxing, and laser hair reduction. Setting and Design: A prospective study for 12 months in a tertiary hospital. Materials and Methods: Patients attending the department of dermatology at a tertiary care hospital for 12 months (July 2018–June 2019) were evaluated for any skin lesions, developed after one of the above parlor procedures. Detailed history, clinical examination, and correlation with the parlor procedure were noted. Results: A total of 102 patients were found to have dermatoses after various parlor procedures during the 1-year study period (81 F and 21 M). Acneiform eruptions 26 (25.4%), followed by post-waxing folliculitis 17(16.7%), and hyperpigmentation of face 15 (14.7%) were the most common dermatoses. Molluscum contagiosum, verrucae plana, and tinea faciei were observed in 11, 6, and 3 patients, respectively. Conclusion: Side effects are not uncommon after parlor procedures. Awareness of these is necessary and educating the patients is extremely important to avoid these unwanted complications.
