It all depends: your first time receiving a body waxing can be uncomfortable because after shaving for years, the hair grows extremely coarse. The more frequently you receive body waxes the more the hair will begin to grow thinner. Removing hair directly from the follicle is never comfortable. If you are especially sensitive to pain or you are first-time waxing client, you may want to take an anti-inflammatory (such as Ibuprofen) 1 hour before your appointment, or you can apply numbing cream 45 minutes prior to service. With continuous waxing, hair becomes finer and sparser, and waxing becomes more comfortable. I think the anticipation is the worst. I always try to talk with my customers, keeping their minds busy with fun conversation. That way, they don’t concentrate on the pain.
