Hi, got 2nd section on Wednesday
Immac'd / veeted before the first, but now it's a scar... immac will be ok won't it?
scar is a well healed 5 yr old grin
but no way could I shave it, ouch.

If it needs doing then yes veet will be fine (don't leave it on too long tho obv!) any things is better than skin prep with a bic! X

Hi, I've had just the one section and I have sensitivity on my almoat 2yo scar.

Maybe cut the hair on the scar very short with scissors, then apply the Immac? Gives the Immac less work to do wink grin

Hope everything goes well.

I couldn't have asked dh either! He would have, but for me, there was something about it (that last bath whilst pg the night before; shaving) that mentally prepared me for the birth.

yep, agree, it's a last meal type thing. also dh <engineer> would take far too long and spd not conducive to that seating posture!
