I had laser hair removal on my armpits, among other areas, and I just love it.  Wish I had had the opportunity to do it a long time ago!  I will pay for my daughter to have laser hair removal in her 20’s, if I have the money, lol.

Never waxed my armpits before so I can’t speak to how painful it is or isn’t, but I can say that I wax my bikini line now and it’s THE BEST. I always used to get razor bumps before and it would be itchy and painful for weeks. With waxing, I don’t have any bumps and I get totally smooth skin. It hurts, but not bad enough to not do it! I do it myself at home.

Hi, It depends completley on the kind of wax that your using. Hard wax is what i would suggest. I just got my arm pits waxed for thr first time a few hours ago (I am 13 years old) and it was nothing. HUrt less than getting my brows done. I bled quite a bit but its normal and i wouldn’t have even noticed if i haden’t looked. Overall, Do it. Doesn’t hurt and the outcome is worth it even if it did.

I get my legs and armpits sugared, and it does sting a bit, not too bad, as long as the person doing it knows what the hell they’re doing. The first time I had them sugared hurt terribly (and the follicles bled a bit), but I think that had more to do with the person doing it being inexperienced. My current aesthetician is much more skilled, and it hurts a lot less.

My pits tend to be a bit red for a day or so afterwards, so that’s something I need to keep in mind.

Yeah, no….tried it once.  I let them do one underarm…..then, I was outta there.  It was the worst pain ever, I would never, ever, do it again.  Ugh……I’m getting flashbacks.

My armpits use to get SO irritated and sensitive every single time I shaved, I hated it. I was getting surgery about 5 years ago and my incisions were in my armpits, so knowing I wouldn’t be able to shave for a while, I waxed them that one time. I do recall it hurting, but not something I couldn’t deal with. And the result was much nicer than shaving for sure. But I ended up getting laser hair removal about 3 years ago and I am OBSESSED with it. My armpits are smooth, hair free, no bumps, no irritation, no black dots. It’s awesome. I did my bikini also. I’d do my whole body below my neck if i had the money to :p
