How to make Waxing Less Painful

On Staten Island, one of the most popular methods of removing body hair is waxing. No matter if you are man or woman, you are likely to experience some discomfort during any waxing procedure, but there are techniques to mitigate the pain. Many people are under the false assumption that Brazilian waxing is incredibly uncomfortable, but if you follow these simple methods, you are guaranteed to have a more pleasant experience.

Male Brazilian waxing is done in a highly sensitive area, and it is easier for a waxer to work if you are limber.  In essence, the more flexible you are, the better waxing experience you will have.  Some professionals suggest taking a yoga class or stretching before you come in for a procedure.

There are many over-the-counter pain numbing creams and sprays that can be applied to the region, prior to a Brazilian wax. These topical, analgesic creams and sprays temporarily relieve pain. Apply the cream or spray, about thirty minutes before wax, and you will notice a substantial reduction of discomfort. In addition to creams and sprays, it is advised to take an over the counter pain pill prior to your procedure.

Another suggestion is to trim hair in the region to about a quarter of an inch in length. At this length the hair can still stick to the waxing strip, but will pull less.  After you trim the hair, use an exfoliating scrub on the region to get rid of layers of dead skin.  By removing this layer, your hair can be pulled from the root, on the first try.

The night before your waxing procedure put a soothing, moisturizing lotion in your fridge. Apply the cool lotion to your skin after your Brazilian wax to reduce an inflammation or irritation. Make sure that the lotion is fragrance and alcohol free. If you apply lotion with either agent, it will most likely burn and dry out your skin.

It is also recommended to avoid tight clothes and sun exposure for 24 hours after your procedure. Freshly waxed skin is very sensitive, especially in the bikini area.

If you are interested in learning more about waxing, it is best to contact a specialist in male Brazilian waxing on Staten Island. A professional male Brazilian waxing salon on Staten Island will walk you through the procedure and advise you on what to do before and after the wax.
