What can I expect during waxing?

Usually, a preconditioning lotion for waxing is first applied to the area to be waxed. Then hot wax is poured onto the skin and strips of cloth are pressed into it. When the wax dries, the cloth is quickly removed. You may feel some discomfort when the wax is pulled off, but relaxing will help alleviate the sensation. The more you experience waxing, the less it hurts. Some suggest taking a couple ibuprofen before treatment to reduce pain and swelling.
