Brazilian Wax...First Time Tomorrow!!! Yikes

Recommended Posts

So i'm going in for my first Brazilian wax tomorrow and i'm bracing myself for the pain. If anyone has had this done or has some tips for me it would be greatly appreciated.

 

I'll keep you posted on how it goes

It's actually not as bad as you would think. The lady who does mine is pretty fast so that helps. It also depends on the type of wax they use. I prefer them to use the wax with strips instead of the type where they don't have to use the strips and have to pick at the corner to pull up. That hurts. Don't worry, it's totally worth it and gets easier every time :)

Not to scare you, but I'd recommend trying to get emla or another numbing cream (with lidocaine) - a lot of waxing places have it or I think you can get it at a drug store also.. I have a very low pain tolerance, but I find it so much easier if I use a numbing cream.

drink alot of water during the day. I drink a little bit of coffee about an hour before to make sure im not retaining water. Then I take an ib praufen (SP). I also bought some cream that numbs it....... but if you cant do all its not a big deal! It does not hurt that bad and its so worth it!!

Best Tip Ever: right after the "removal" of the strip/wax, apply PRESSURE! My first waxer did this and it worked so well. My new waxer (because I moved) doesnt really do it, so I do it myself and it still work wonders!

 

Oh, and know that you will be in odd positions and its a little odd...but they are professionals and do it all day long :) Good luck...you will love it!
