The pain you may experience when the wax strip is removed varies between women. The pain can range from slight to severe and from several seconds to minutes. The most painful area is usually the top part of the genitals whereas the least painful is underneath the genitals and around the anus.The first brazilian wax session is usually the most painful one. If the pain is unbearable, you only need to tell your beautician that you need a little rest. You need not be embarrassed as your beautician will be understanding. Usually, the pain you experience during a brazilian wax feels less the more you have treatments as the hair can be pulled out easier. If you wish, you can apply topical anesthetics to lessen the pain.
The best time to have a brazilian wax is a week after menstruation as the genital area is least sensitive during this time. In contrast, the pain is likely to be greatest immediately before and during menstruation when the area is most sensitive.
To make you feel less sensitive during your brazilian wax session, try to avoid caffeine, stress and nicotine. Be sure to have lots of sleep so that you can relax on the day.
