    Default 7 minute Brazilian?

    Any info ladies? Does it still hurt like hell and they just get it done quicker or what?

    I'm a sook! I waxed my legs a few times and I usually can only do one leg! but I'm at "that" stage in my pregnancy where I can't see my vagina

    I can't maintain it and its getting really uncomfortable. DH said if I can have a baby I can handle 7 minutes of pain (he is saying it nicely because he knows how much I hate having hair, but personally doesn't care either way)

    So help!

    I haven't had a 7 minute brazilian but I've had a few normal ones. I can honestly say that I find leg waxing waaaaayyyy more painful than a Brazilian!

    I had one done ages ago - as far as i can tell the only benefit is that it gets done faster.

    If its done by using the wax by the 7min Brazillian wax company, the wax its self is 10 times better!
    I use this wax and its awesome, gets the job done much faster and a lot of clients say it hurts less!

    Also can't remember what/ if any panadol/nurofen etc is safe to take during pregnancy, but if you take some 1/2 hr before it will also help ease some discomfort. (I don't promote taking stuff for "no reason" but have clients who take a nurofen or panadol each time to help with the pain.)

    Oh thanks mumma. The company is a cosmetic medical clinic so I'm guessing it would be the proper wax. They advertised it as much less painful but I wasn't sure if it was just because it was quicker or what. I'm soo scared because I'm such a sook but REALLY want to get it done.

    I don't know about a 7 minute one but my beautician does it in less than 15. It's honestly not that painful. Yes it hurts but it's not so bad or I wouldn't keep going back.

    I'm a beauty therapist and cannot imagine being able to do a brazilian in 7 minutes... unless the client has very sparse hair and the tautest skin known to man.

    I definitely second taking a couple of panadol before your appointment, and when not pregnant, have a glass of wine too! It's my little self-indulgence.

    Go and get it done! Go on!

    For financial reasons, I'm an at home Brazilian waxer... And if I can wax myself (takes at least 30 mins, sometimes twice that) then you can handle a 7 min wax lol! Go for it!
