We use the best possible wax and methods to ensure the most effective treatment.
To begin, I will dip a waxing stick into a pot of warm wax and then spread it onto your skin and hair.
I use low heating wax for the least amount of discomfort.
Once the wax is placed, the hair is then pulled out from the root.
The procedure can definitely be painful the first time, but get less so with subsequent waxing.
I will remove stray hairs with a set of tweezers.
As I change spots , you’ll need to adjust your body position in order for me to reach your most intimate spots.
While waxing, it’s best to pull the skin tight, so you may be asked to help stabilize an area with your hand, especially towards the middle of the labia where there’s no firm bone or muscle underneath.
Waxing usually starts in the front and moves toward the back.
If you would prefer not to have certain regions waxed, just say “No, thank you”.
How closely you trim, shave or wax is a personal preference. Although, at this point, why not end up perfectly smooth?
Q & A
- You should arrived “freshened up” or is there isn’t time, I provide moistened “towelettes” for you convenience.
How long should my hair be?
- Hair growth should be at least 1/4″ but not longer than 1/2″ (about 2 week’s growth) for the most effective waxing. Hair should be carefully trimmed if necessary.
So how does it differ from a regular bikini wax?
- Basically, with the Brazilian, hair is removed in the front, back and everything in between. Most of the time a “landing strip” is left in the front, but some clients opt for everything removed. A bikini wax on the other hand, the hair is removed in the bikini line only.
What are the possible side effects of waxing and how can the be minimized?
- Although I can not predict or guarantee who may react, most clients do not experience reactions beyond redness and minor irritation. Hair may break at the root during waxing, causing some hairs to grow out faster. Please follow these guidelines to minimize irritation and possible break outs.
- Avoid the sun immediately after waxing and please wear sun screen. Recently waxed areas are prone to hyper-pigmentation (permanent darkening of the skin) if exposed to the sun.
- Avoid heavy exercise for at least 24hrs after waxing.
- Avoid saunas, steam rooms, whirlpools and other heated sources for at least 48hrs.
- Avoid tight clothing after waxing, especially in the waxed areas. Tight clothing may result in irritation and ingrown hairs.
- Regular exfoliation may be helpful to remove dead skin so your hairs can get out above the surface or the pores and not become ingrown.
- Routine waxing helps the skin get accustomed to the procedure and may minimize irritation.
- Some people will experience a rash after waxing. It is not a break out and will last under a week. If this happens, apply Polysporin (not Neosporin) at least once a day for 3 days.
- An annoying consequence of shaving and waxing occur when a hair curls into the skin and grows in the wrong direction, resulting in a red irritated bump that can become infected. To help avoid ingrown hairs, I recommend using the loofah 24hrs after waxing. It helps pop the hair out of your skin to keep the skin healthy. Also using BUMP a non-irritant skin product works the best.
What are the pros to Brazilian waxing?
- The results will last anywhere from ten days to three weeks, with no maintenance, and there’s no shave that can get you this smooth. In fact, that’s the biggest benefit, no more shaving! For me, a Brazilian wax is the way to go. A little painful, yes, but the results are well worth it. You eventually get use to the discomfort. You’ll be happy. If you feel worries about the wax hurting you can always purchase a small tube of EMILA from a pharmacy. It is a numbing cream that helps reduce and major discomfort.
What are the cons to Brazilian waxing?
- You may still experience red bumps and ingrown hairs, just like with shaving. However, regular use of a loofah sponge will eliminate dead skin that percents the now-weakened hair to get to the surface of the skin. Additionally, you have to go ten to 14 days between wax jobs, so you’ll have a period of time with stubble.
