bookworld:  I have had 2 Brazilians in my life, and one modified bikini… which is in between a Brazilian and a bikini.

I got one before my wedding, which was my first ever. I won’t lie and say it didn’t hurt, cos it did in certain spots… mainly around the pubic bone. I wasn’t afraid to ask questions, and my Cerologist (went to Waxing the City) advised that it’s cos the hair is thicker so it takes more work to get it out. Made sense. She also said that it is more common than people think to get one done. Take that tylenol before!

At this place, they use a special wax versus wax and a strip to remove, so it actually wasn’t that bad. I went back and got another one before our honeymoon, and then last summer went and got the modified bikini (just doesn’t do the labia area or inner backside), which wasn’t horrible.

I’m PG right now, and once I get a bump that I won’t be able to trim up that pubic hair… I may go invest in getting a modified one done again. It’s also nice, as it lasts and the hair growth is slower to come back in the more times you do it.

Go for it!

bookworld:  I’ve tried it twice. It hurt so much, even with ibuprofen. I’m also prone to in-grown hairs (even with exfoliation). Waxing isn’t worth it to me (i.e. pain, in-grown hairs, price, no reduction in hair after regrowth).

I prefer getting laser hair removal. And in terms of price, I found a place where each session was equivalent in price to getting a wax. The laser also hurt less for me. The hair grows back less and less with each session. I also get less in-growns (i.e. barely any) with laser.

I go every four weeks. The first time was awful. Took almost an hour. Now it only takes 20 minutes and it’s much easier (although still quite painful). The bum actually doesn’t hurt much at all.

Oh, and this is coming from someone who has had two kids, one without an epidural.

bookworld:  Keep the area clear of any unnecessary heat, friction, or sweat. That includes exercise and sex for the next 24 hours or so. If you have clearasil pads, you can use those to prevent whiteheads on your pubic mound (clearly stay away from your labia). Don’t sleep with underwear on.

If you’re committed to the hair removal, laser is fantastic alternative to waxing. It is a bit pricier and requires multiple appointments over 6-12 months depending on your individual hair growth, but it is much less painful and the results are fantastic. 

As for aftercare, any soothing lotion would be okay, like a non-scented moisturiser. Like anything though, it’s important to try it on a small patch of skin first just in case it irritates you. When I was going through my laser process I would wear loose pants and go commando for the rest of the day to prevent any chafing.
