Is it safe to have a Brazilian wax?

Dionne wants to know if it's safe to get a Brazilian wax, which is a bikini wax that takes "all the hair off from the front, the back, the bottom," Dr. Oz says.

Dr. Oz says it is "absolutely safe" to get a Brazilian wax, although your skin is fragile and prone to pimples for a short time afterward. There are some products you can put on your skin to prevent the pimples, he says.

If you are going to go Brazilian, Dr. Oz says to make sure the wax is clean—don't use wax that has been used on someone else. Also, check the wax to make sure it's not too hot.
