So You’re Going for A Brazilian Wax, Now What?

So You’re Going for A Brazilian Wax, Now What?

If you are embarking on your first visit to the spa for a Brazilian wax, you may have some questions.  How much will it hurt?  What do I do to prepare?  What if I feel embarrassed?  Don’t worry, you’re not alone.  Many women avoid getting a Brazilian wax, even though they would like to try it, for fear of the unknown.  ‘

Every woman has questions when it comes to her body and removing hair from the most delicate parts.  To help you prepare for your Brazilian wax experience, I’ve put together some helpful tips to help get you through the big day.

How to Prepare for A Brazilian Wax

•    Let your hair grow at least ¼ of an inch so the wax can grasp the hair.
•    Do not shave before your appointment.
•    Do not go tanning before getting waxed, this can lead to tears in the skin.
•    Tell your technician of any medications or even topical creams you are using that may make your skin sensitive.
•    Wash thoroughly before your appointment. If you are coming straight from work, use the restroom and clean thoroughly with a baby wipe before getting waxed.
•    Some people experience sensitive skin after waxing, you may take Advil an hour before your appointment to help.

It’s very important that the hair is long enough to be waxed. If not, the appointment will most likely have to be scheduled.  The hair should be at least ¼ of an inch in order for the wax to grip it firmly and remove it perfectly from the root.

There’s a fine line between hair that is too short and hair that is too long.  Hair that is too long can be hard to wax and a little messy.  If you feel that the hair is much longer than ¼ inch, I recommend you trim it yourself at home first.  As a technician, I never want to go near such a sensitive and delicate area with a sharp object.  No matter how professional you are, a mistake can happen.  If the client were to sneeze, cough, or move suddenly, that is enough to cause considerable damage with a scissor.  That is why I always recommend that for the client to trim the hairs on their own if you feel that they are too long.

Will it Hurt?

Yes, a Brazilian wax has some element of discomfort.  But, if you seek out a true professional, the procedure should take no longer than 15 minutes and discomfort will be kept to a bare minimum.  Those that are quick and precise can accurately remove hair without much pain for the client.

Where to go for a Brazilian Wax

This is a delicate procedure that requires a great deal of knowledge and hygiene. I ONLY recommend visiting reputable and state approved day spa’s that employ licensed technicians.  If you know a friend or family member that also has the service done, get recommendations.  You want to go to someone who is ‘known’ for the Brazilian wax.  Never let price be a determining factor.  If going to a clean and reputable establishment means paying an extra $10-$15, believe me, it is well worth it.  If a technician is not truly experienced in the Brazilian Bikini wax, you could be left with bruising, torn skin, and even worse, infection.  Research carefully.
