Dark spots caused by waxing

Use sunscreens and also self tanners (to hide it until it looks better). This is an uncommon problem. Was the wax too hot? Maybe you should test a depilatory on a small area (Neet or Nair, etc) and use that method next time you want to remove your leg hair. Hope this helps!
