Brazilian Waxing – What to Expect
Does it hurt?
This hair removal type is A little painful, but the results are well worth it. You’ll eventually get used to the discomfort. Routine waxing helps to reduce the pain, and will minimize irritation. We recommend taking 2 ibuprofen an hour before your appointment. Better safe than sorry.
Do consult Mother Nature before booking your waxing appointment. Don’t attempt waxing the three days prior to, and the first three days of your menstrual cycle. Your skin is much more sensitive at that time and waxing will be much more painful.
How long should my hair be before I remove it with wax?
Hair growth should be at least 1/4″ but not longer than 1/2″ (about 2 week’s growth) for the most effective waxing.
How long should I wait to get waxed after I’ve shaved?
You need some growth for the wax to adhere to the hair. Hair should be at least 1/4″ (about 3-4 week’s growth) for the most effective waxing. Do not shave between appointments. This makes the hair more resistant to future waxing.
How long will waxing last?
The results will last anywhere from ten days to three weeks. We recommend booking appointments every 4 to 6 weeks. The hair eventually gets softer and thinner every time it grows back.
What can I expect afterwards?
Let your skin heal. After you get your Brazilian wax, it is likely that your skin may be slightly irritated and possibly red. If this happens it will usually clear in a few days. Do not exfoliate or spray tan and avoid sun and heat for the first 24hrs, these will inflame the skin.
