Brazilian Wax

Brazilian waxing has so many different definitions and it’s important to get specific with your esthetician about the type of Brazilian you’re seeking, making sure you’re both on the same page before the session starts.

Many ask “does it hurt” and the answer is “it depends.” Skin type, hair type, your own preparation and your esthetician’s experience level are all factors.

Here are a few preparations we recommend before you arrive for your Brazilian wax appointment. If this is your first time getting a Brazilian wax, don’t be afraid to ask questions and follow the recommendations below to make your waxing experience more comfortable and relaxing.

  • Hair must be at least 1/4” - 1/2" in length.
  • Avoid alcohol and caffeine prior to your appointment as both can cause pore tightening and lead to discomfort.
  • Numbing creams are also a no-no, while suggested by some the truth is they aren’t effective for waxing.
  • Avoid tanning immediately before or after waxing, skin will be too sensitive and lead to a bad experience.
  • Be upfront about any medications you’re taking such as antibiotics, Accutane or topical creams.
  • Avoid making an appointment the week before and of your period, you will experience heightened sensitivity.
  • Take two ibuprofen an hour before arriving.

    After your Brazilian wax minimize any discomfort by using a moisturizer and avoiding intense workouts with lots of friction. Take the advice of your waxing professional and always feel free to call us with any questions.
