Hair removal is an issue with which both men and women struggle, particularly when it comes to wanting to remove the most hair possible from the pubic area. Brazilian waxing achieves the goal of complete pubic hair removal, and the results are cleaner and last longer than shaving because the hair is lifted out at the root.
When scheduling a Brazilian waxing, pain may be the primary concern. While most people experience some pain during the course of a waxing session, there are ways to minimize discomfort. Taking two ibuprofen pills 30 minutes to an hour before going to a waxing appointment can greatly minimize pain. This is especially recommended for people who have never had a Brazilian wax. Applying a topical numbing agent can also desensitize the area. During the appointment, relaxing and exhaling as the hair is removed can help with further pain management. It is important to remember that the pain is temporary and will subside noticeably with subsequent waxing sessions.
Irritation is another concern when it comes to hair removal. Although waxing removes hair cleanly, some clients may experience irritation within a day or two of having their appointment. Applying post-waxing ointments or Vitamin E oil or cream can soothe the skin before irritation can occur. Swimming and soaking in hot tubs should be avoided for 24 hours following a Brazilian wax.
After the first Brazilian waxing session, hair should grow back finer. Clients typically find that they should avoid shaving in between waxes and return for appointments at three to six week intervals. People who wax regularly generally find that they wait to go longer and longer before needing to have regrowth removed
