  • I go to the salon every 6 weeks or so for a brazilian. It stings a little, but to me it's much easier than shaving every day! And the lady I go to is really good at what she does.

  • I have done them for a living and I've seen people completley freak, and others don't even flinch. It really depends. It felt like a sunburn to me.

  • If you are concerned about the pain, there is lidocane spray made just for waxing that numbs you a little bit. It's not perfect, but it helps.

  • it hurts but going to a place that will ice and numb you down a bit helps. That and taking some tylenol previous to the waxing and having an icepack to take down the redness and any swelling.

  • No pain no gain,it's a stinger, a lot of it depends on what you are waxing

  • there are some pain relievers you can use topically to help numb the area so it doesn't hurt so much

  • I'm an esthetician and I wax... everything on my clients. If you go to someone who knows what's they're doing it's not going to be overly painful.

    Waxing damages the hair folicle, so the more often you get waxed the less and less it's going to hurt. If you're overly sensitive to pain, try taking tylenol about an hour before the service. there's also topical sprays that numb your skin.
