❔ Should I apply a topical anesthetic before getting my wax?
Yes, you may use a topical anesthetic before getting waxed. Although it's not common to do so (usually people do it before electrolysis or laser), the best method is to apply the anesthetic over the area to be waxed, cover it with plastic, and tape the edges.
For clients worried about waxing pain, we recommend that they take an Advil or Tylenol beforehand. The pain is not that bad, and it lasts for only one second.
