The Ultimate Guide To Making The Bikini Wax Less Painful

The Ultimate Guide To Making The Bikini Wax Less Painful

The bikini wax is probably one of the most intimidating beauty treatments out there. It also can be deemed as  uncomfortable,  unnecessary, or unwanted. We are here to change your mind about that. If you were thinking about planning for a bikini wax but never took that step forward, keep reading! Here are some tips and tricks on how to prepare for it and make sure it’s a lot more comfortable.

Types Of Bikini Waxing

1. The Extension Of The Bikini Line

This bikini wax leaves you feeling extremely attractive, and almost G-string ready. I’m quite sure you can picture yourself already. This one leaves no hair poking out since a small triangle is waxed out, leaving a smaller triangle. I would give this one a pain rating of 2 out of 5 because it is not half as painful as what is yet to come.

2. Let’s Talk Hollywood

This one’s not for the faint of heart! It’s like the ultimate bikini wax. And it removes all the hair that exists between your legs. The procedure takes about 20-30 minutes, and it rates about 5/5 on the pain scale (whoa!).

Once you’ve gone through it, you’ll forget about the pain and how clean and fresh it makes you feel. It’s worth it. Just leave your fears behind when you go for this one.

3. The Brazilian Wax

Now we’re talking! With this wax, you’ll get a strip of hair left on your landing strip. But otherwise, you’ll be hairless. You can let your imagination run wild!

This is a four on the pain scale, but the hair removal process takes about 20 minutes. It’s worth it in the end!

4. The Standard

If you pull the hair off all the way to the edge of your panties, it is called a Brazilian wax. Most salons do this when you decide to get a full leg wax. It leaves a clean triangle that you can trim off whenever you want, and it is quick and easy. It scores 2 out of 5 on the pain scale, which I would say is bearable.

How To Plan For A Bikini Wax Comfortably

1. Embarrassment

The first time you get a bikini wax, it might feel weird to be lying on a table with your legs spread wide open while someone is looking closely at your most private parts (no matter how many people you’ve slept with). It’s possible that the beautician has seen it all before, but if this is new territory for you, it will be a little uncomfortable. However, once the waxing process begins, you’ll be too busy thinking about the strange feeling of hot wax being applied to your nether regions to worry about what the beautician thinks. She’ll probably forget every part of what she sees by the end of her day. And if she does happen to mention it to someone else, she won’t gossip about it (at least not where you could hear her).

2. Pain

The treatment will be uncomfortable, but your therapist will try to make you as comfortable as possible. If you prepare yourself and go for the treatment, it will get a lot easier. You need to remember that if there is no pain, there is no gain.

Keep It Clean and Keep It Safe

It’s very important to make sure that the technician performing your Brazilian wax is clean, as well as the room in which she’s working. The wax should be fresh, and she shouldn’t double-dip her spatula into the wax pot.

After your wax, it’s important to take all the necessary precautions for up to 24 hours.

After The Treatment

A soothing lotion is usually recommended after treatment. You should use one. Your skin may feel a little stinging and tingling, but it will pass quickly.

How Long Does It Last?

It usually takes about three to six weeks for your bikini wax to grow back. Remember that coarse hair grows more quickly than fine, light hair. If you want a smooth bikini area, it’s recommended that you get waxed every three to four weeks. Not letting the hair grow out fully before it is pulled out again will make it finer.

Tips To Reduce The Pain Of Getting A Tattoo And Precautions To Be Taken Afterwards

I don’t promise that this will eliminate the pain, but it will definitely reduce the discomfort. Here are some tips to make waxing less of a hassle.

1. To ease the pain of your waxing treatment, you can take an aspirin or a mild painkiller about 30 minutes before your appointment. It will also help reduce the chances of swelling or irritation.

2. When you are a week before and after your period, your threshold of pain is very low. So, make sure you schedule your waxing appointment in the two weeks when your body is not so sensitive. And another quick tip: Your body is most pain-ready between 3pm and 5 pm, so now you know when in the day to schedule your waxing appointment.

3. Prepare for waxing by exfoliating a day before. This will remove dead skin cells and loosen out ingrown hairs.

4. Always remember that hard wax is gentler than soft wax.

5. If you are uncomfortable, speak up. Let your beautician know and she can help you feel more relaxed.

6. Take a deep breath! It helps to reduce the pain.

7. Some technicians suggest that you turn your head to the side and cough when wax is being ripped off. It may sound funny, but it helps distract you from the pain.

8. Try to be aware of the parts that hurt more. Being prepared for pain makes it easier to deal with.

9. Remember to wear loose clothing post-treatment. Tight clothes increase friction, which makes the areas more susceptible to bacterial infections.

10. After waxing, avoid swimming or going into the beach or shower with hot water for about 24 hours.

11. For the first 24 hours after receiving a massage, avoid strenuous or exhausting physical activity.

Advantages Of Bikini Waxing

Now that you know what to expect, let’s take a look at the advantages of getting a bikini wax.

1. It works to keep your pubic hair soft and easy to remove.

2. It is a quick and easy way to get rid of unwanted pubic hair.

3. You’ll feel clean, fresh, and confident after using it.

4. You can wear and carry off anything without looking like a fool.

5. As you wax more regularly, the hair on your body will become finer.

6. It helps reduce dark spots and razor bumps in private areas.

Alternatives To Bikini Waxing

1. Sugar Lemon Water

This wax is easy to use and can be used both as hard and soft wax. If you are using it at home to do the bikini wax by yourself, it can be hard, time taking, and uncomfortable.

2. Shaving

Waxing, unlike shaving, will give you smooth skin that lasts longer. While shaving is easier and faster than waxing, getting all the hair off can be difficult.

3. Hair Removal Creams

Despite these creams’ effectiveness in removing hair, there is always a risk of chemical burns. You need to be extremely careful when using them.


Hopefully, this guide has given you a better idea of what to expect going into your first bikini wax. It’s important to do plenty of research before going in for your appointment and to feel as comfortable as possible. Although the pain of waxing can’t be completely avoided, there are some things you can do beforehand to make the process more bearable. Take these tips into consideration!
