Clip your pubic hair down to 1/4 inch in length. This allows an easy removal and that will cause less discomfort. Don’t shave it down to nothing because at the shorter lengths the hair is very stiff and difficult to remove.
To reduce pain and/or redness take two anti-inflammatory caplets and antacids about one hour before appointment.

For dry skin, moisturizing before hair removal is recommended. However, breakout prone clients should use an antiseptic or antibiotic ointment.
