Is there a pain killer that numbs you before getting waxed?


Answer by  PriscillaPresley (284)

You can take an over-the-counter painkiller one to two hours before your appointment. Also, exfoliating the area before the waxing can help with a smooth wax. Topical, or on-the-skin pain relief gels are sometimes used, but may not work for waxing. Ask your salon what they can and cannot use for your pain control.

No, but it is a good idea to take a pill such as ibuprofen before the procedure. Ibuprofen (or something similar) reduces the inflammation and swelling of the area, easing the pain.

The brief "pain" associated with waxing does not justify the use of any "pain killer." Pain medications are for serious pain caused by injury or disease.

Waxing, as everyone who has tried it, can be very painful and lead to severe skin irritation in people with sensitive skins. Certain areas, such as the upper lip, as well as the bikini region, but also legs elicit a strong ouch reaction to this procedure. An Aspirin taken before hand or a skin numbing gel might bring relief!

A topical spray such as solarcaine, that will help to take the sting away after waxing, but using it before could interfere with the wax. The short answer is no.

There are no such specific pain killers before waxing, but it is not advisory to have pain killers frequently as it will damage the whole digestive system. Even after this if you want to have a pain killer, you can have general pain killers like nimulid, anacin, multipain etc.

No pain killer numbs you before getting waxed but pain killer drugs can reduce the painfull condition when you are doing waxe. with the risk of addiction one can use opioid derivative drug but not advisable for this purpose
