For those of you who are getting a Brazilian Bikini Wax for the first time, I would say “probably.” Let’s put it this way, the coarser your hair and the more sensitive your skin, the more sensitivity you will feel during and after the wax. Some first-time clients are uncomfortable for an hour and others feel a little bit sore for 5 hours or so. Additionally, it is important not to wear tight jeans or pants if it is your first-time waxing. And don’t throw yourself into a spinning class or do anything else that involves a lot of friction right after a wax! Ouch! The best way to minimize the discomfort is to take an ibuprofen 20 minutes before you wax, then take a cold shower on the area .
I would rather you didn’t. Numbing creams can interfere with the application of the wax or, in certain situations, cause allergic reactions. For instance, somebody could be allergic to a benzocaine that contains an anti-itch formula without knowing it. They apply it before they wax, then become itchy. Thinking this is a reaction to the wax, they reapply the product, and therefore worsen the situation. Beyond this, I’m wary of using chemicals around such a sensitive area full of membranes and have heard horror stories of people not knowing a wax is too hot for their skin (our wax is kept at a steady warm temperature) because they are so numb. So, please avoid numbing creams or sprays.
Never, Double dipping a waxing stick is unacceptable . To keep the waxing experience safe and sanitary, each stick is dipped into the wax one time and then disposed of.
3 to 6 weeks depending on the individual's hair re-growth rate.
In most cases , hair growth is minimal during the first week or two and noticeable increases in the third and fourth week.
Continued waxing and exfoliate between will result in sparse hair re- growth.
Yes. However, please clear this with your doctor. Just like waxing when you are menstruating, being pregnant will leave you more sensitive during and after your wax.
A Brazilian wax is the complete removal of the hair on the pubic region, the labia, and the buttock center strip. You can remove everything or leave a small patch or strip.
Absolutely. Even though wax is naturally antibacterial, gloves are used to make sure that you and the waxing technician stay protected. My gloves are latex free and powder free.
Yes of course. Just know the facts you will be more sensitive, and you must wear a clean tampon. Pop an ibuprofen 20 minutes before. It may help.
I definitely recommend at least a 2-3-week hair growth like 1/4 inch. And for your first wax, the longer the better. This allows the wax to grab the hairs easily.
Every four weeks for the body and every 2 weeks for the face.
Between waxes you should moisturize and exfoliate, especially if you have ingrown hairs. We also offer a body scrub to help exfoliate and avoid ingrown hairs.
avoid for 24 hours the gym, sun, hot water , spray tan after your treatment to make sure you don t breakout by closing your pores.
It’s possible but not probable. Some clients are smooth as a baby’s bottom after their first experience. However, it is common that after the first 2 or 3 waxing’s you may feel a wee bit of stubble. This occurs most frequently with clients that have coarse, dark hair, and it is most common with legs waxing. The reason for stubble is that your hair grows on 3 different cycles, each lasting about 28 days. It takes a few services for your hairs to all grow out long enough to be grabbed entirely by the wax. When it does, it’s smooth sailing from there. Literally!
To make sure your skin stays healthy, you should avoid waxing if you have recently been exposed to the sun (naturally or in the tanning salon), will be exposed to the sun in the near future (24 – 36 hours), have just exercised (including swimming) or if you are using any medication internally or topically that increases the skin’s sensitivity—so, avoid waxing if you are using: Accutane, Retin-A, Alpha-Hydroxy-Acid, Resorcinol, Glycolic Acid or other kinds of chemical based peels.
Nope, if you become a regular client, you will notice that your hair will become finer and soften over time.
Of course,! Each client is different and we offer complimentary test patches so you can see how your skin reacts to the wax within a 24-hour period.
Nope. You can still schedule your waxing session, as long as you are wearing a tampon, and we will work around it. However, the best time to wax is mid-cycle—right around the time that ovulation occurs—to avoid discomfort.
Yes of course. We offer all services for men, from your eyebrows to toes.
- Two weeks prior to waxing stop shaving, tweezing or using cream hair removers to the area/areas you plan on having waxed as the hair needs to be AT Least 1/4inch to wax.
- 72 Hours before STOP ALL prescription Retin-a, Renova, Differin, Tazorac or over the counter retinols, alpha hydroxy or beta hydroxy products (please call or email if you have any questions regarding other medications or skin care that may not be listed)
Also NO Tanning both indoor or outdoor for Three days prior and Two days after waxing
- Evening/Morning before. If you have a morning waxing appointment I recommend Showering the night before and exfoliating with exfoliating gloves (these can be found at most drugstores/Target type stores) and a moisturizing body wash (really concentrate on the area to be waxed, this helps remove the dead skin layer that tends to cover a lot of hairs, this will insure a great wax) Moisturize!
If you have a late afternoon/evening appointment do this routine in the morning. Make sure the exfoliating gloves are washed on a regular basis to prevent transferring any bacteria or mold that may collect in them by sitting in the shower. Better yet buy a few pairs (they are less than $3 a pair) Use one glove and then toss it in the wash with your towels. You will always have a clean exfoliating glove that way.
- Clients who wear contacts please bring a contact lenses case with solution or wear glasses for All Facial Services.
- For those that spray tan/self-tan be aware that waxing will remove sunless tanner so I recommend waxing 48-24 hours prior to sunless tanning services
- Please don't drink alcohol before your waxing service. Alcohol dilates the blood vessels and leads to poor circulation and makes the skin more sensitive.
