New Jersey seeks to ban bikini waxes

(NBC) -- State regulators in New Jersey are trying to ban bikini waxes after two women were hospitalized for infections.

The board of cosmetology is planning to prohibit hair removal from the genital area, usually called a "Brazilian" bikini wax.

Some skin care experts say it's dangerous, because the hot wax can irritate or tear delicate skin in the area, and lead to infections and other complications.

But many salon owners say the ban could mean a significant drop in business.

The board of cosmetology will meet April 14-th to decide whether to pass the ban.
