Today's advice: Don't let a trainee perform your Brazilian wax

    Or, thank goodness I'm a guy.


    A sexy Brazilian-style bikini wax almost cost a 20-year-old Melbourne woman her life.

    The woman suffered a near-fatal infection after she was left bleeding by the hot-wax hair removal procedure, performed by a trainee waxer. :-\ :-[ :-X

    Less than a fortnight later, possibly because of a lowered immune system arising from diabetes, she came down with extreme pain and a fever. She had also broken out in a rash stretching from her groin to her chest, arms and neck.
    Professor Grayson said it was one of the most extreme of 90 cases of hot-wax burns resulting from Brazilian hair-removal procedures seen by Victorian hospital emergency departments last year.

    Great..just great! Now not only do I cringe at the idea of having this done, I want to just go ahead and faint.

    Sounds like she didn't shave down before getting a Brazillian. You can't go in with full bush. It just doesn't work right.

    I could be wrong as my computer wouldn't open the links (not you're fault Perry, but computer just sucks).

    SC it didnt' say one way or another. But it did say that later after she healed she tried to shave and it came back.
