    So I'm getting my legs professionally waxed OUCH!! this afternoon for the first time. I've done it at home a couple of times with my cousin but I figured I should get them done by a professional.

    I decided only to go with the 1/2 leg for now as I don't have too much hair on the upper part of my leg. I've never had a bikini wax or a brazillian, but I'll definitely be discussing that with her today. I wanted to do a trial run before my actual wedding to see if everything goes well. I still have like 7 months till the wedding, but I figured it's summertime now, let's lose the hair! lol

    Anyway, I'm so super excited to get this done and was happy that I could get an appointment this afternoon when I called early today.

    Do any of you get your legs professionally waxed all the time? or just for the wedding?

      I haven't touched a razor in 5 years, all I do is wax. It's so worth it, but I have to admit, in the beginning when the hair is still thick and course, its pretty hard to let it grow out. Make sure you take a couple ibuprofen 30 minutes before your appointment!

        It hurts but in the end it is definately worth it.

        Kelly is right, make sure you take those ibuprofen!!

          Damn, I don't have any ibuprofen with me today. Oh well, I'll tough it out. It can't be any worse than getting tattoos!

          I'm not a huge shaver in the winter, it annoys me to shave lol so I don't mind the growth. That's why I'm doing it now before summer really starts and I have been able to let the hair grow (still wearing pants!)

          Megan - I'll definitely let you know how it goes and how long it lasts!!

            Do you do it on your own or by a professional? Do you find that your hair is less coarse now or that you have less than before you started waxing?

              Has anyone used a numbing cream beforehand? My daughter had a big wart removed on the side of her toe, and I had a presciption for some cream that I had to put on 1 hour beforehand. I guess it worked because she barely flinched.
              I had laser hair removal on the back of my neck....ouch ouch ouch!! Feels like electric shocks. I guess there is no painless way to get around hair!

                Both, I'm an aesthetician and I wax myself. It's way less course now than when I started. For a couple years, I would wax most of the time, and shave now and again. When I was doing that, I didn't really see a change in the way the hair grew. I started noticing it after about 6 months of only waxing.

                  I've tried 'No Scream Cream' and I didn't really notice that it helped with the smarting as much a popping a few pills. The prescription cream would probably be the best bet for a noticable difference.

                    So I've survived my first leg waxing!! lol It wasn't bad at all. After the first few shocks of pain, you get used to it. No big deal, so go for it Megan! I'll definitely be doing this again!

                      Let me know how it goes!! I would suggest doing a trial first, before the wedding!
