What to Expect and How To Prepare for Your Brazilian Wax
There are many questions, concerns and misconceptions when it comes to the world’s sexiest hair removal procedure, the Brazilian Bikini wax! What to expect during your procedure, how to prepare for your Brazilian wax, will it hurt, Brazilian wax aftercare….all of these concerns are very common questions many of readers just like you ask every day.
Here are some of the most common questions asked, as well as my answer.
Do I Have To Remove My Underwear For A Brazilian Wax?
If you are having a full Brazilian bikini wax; removing it all from front to back—it is easier for the technician if you remove your under garments. There is absolutely nothing to feel uncomfortable about. Technicians who perform this procedure perform dozens each week. Believe me, there is nothing they have not seen before.
Should I Do Anything To Prepare for A Brazilian Bikini Wax?
To make hair removal easiest, hair should be at least 1/4″ long. So whatever you do—do NOT shave or trim your hair before you come for your appointment. You will also want to avoid extended sun exposure 48 hours prior to waxing.
Exfoliating your skin several days before waxing can also help ease hair removal by removing dead layers of skin that may be trapping hair underneath the surface. On the day of your waxing services, you will want to make sure you thoroughly cleanse the area being waxed and avoid using any oils or lotions.
Is It Ok To Be Waxed When I Have My Period?
Waxing during your menstrual cycle is not recommended because of comfort and hygiene considerations. During your menstrual cycle, your body is more sensitive due to the change of hormones, and this could cause the treatment to be much more painful and your skin more sensitive. Sensitive skin is more susceptible to tearing and bruising.
Do I Have To Do Anything In The Days Following A Brazilian Wax?
There are a few things you should do after your waxing, but most importantly, here are the things you SHOULD NOT DO:
1) Do not go tanning or expose the skin to the sun for 48 hours
2) Avoid hot showers, baths, saunas and steam rooms
3) Avoid scented lotions
4) Avoid sex for 24 hours if your skin is swollen and red
In the days following your Brazilian wax, be sure to gently cleanse the area with mild soap and water and you can also use an alcohol based antiseptic or cleanser to keep the area clean and free of whitehead breakouts.
