  • Waxing bikini area

    I really want this done but I'm so nervous. It seems like it is so awkward! Like what do I need to do to prepare for it ? How painful is it ? How long does it last?

  • Waxing is a common method.But you can think of laser hair treatment also.It is more faster,time efficient,has lesser side effects.
    Thanks.

    • Waxing is the best way to go. It's not a big deal. You may want to take some Motrin before you go and my wax lady said to exfoliate the skin before you go in because it opens up the cuticles (not sure if that's really true).

      Good luck!

      • I think waxing has many disadvantages compared to laser.It is time consuming and does not give a long term solution.
        Thanks

              • My sister talked me into getting a bikini wax when I was 16. The lady prepped one side and asked me if I was ready, then she let it rip. It hurt so much I kicked her across the room and threatened to deck her if she came near me again. Needless to say, I left there with only one side waxed.

                Never again, just call me beaver for life.

                  Thanks.
