FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is a Brazilian Wax? You may choose to have everything taken off, which is described on our menu as “the nude,” or leave a shape in front, usually a strip or a triangle, which we describe as “the Brazilian.”
What is a Bikini Wax? The bikini wax removes only the hair in the bikini line area.
Does the Brazilian or Bikini Wax hurt? Our experienced and trained estheticians use the bare-able method, which minimizes the discomfort associated with this process. Your esthetician may ask for your assistance in holding the skin taut. You might not want to wax four days before or four days after your menstrual cycle, and some find it is a little more painful on those days. Being overly tired, feeling under the weather, or taking antibiotics can also increase discomfort. Regardless of your level of sensitivity, a trained and experienced esthetician makes a world of difference!
How Long will the Results of a Brazilian or Bikini Wax last? Hair grows at different rates for everyone, but you will notice that after a few brazilian and bikini waxes, the hair will start to grow back much slower and will be much finer.
Can I get a Brazilian or Bikini Wax if I am pregnant? Yes, but please make sure to clear this with your doctor. Just like waxing when you are menstruating, being pregnant can cause increased sensitivity during and after your wax.
When Not to Wax: We cannot perform a Brazilian wax or any other kind of waxing service under the following conditions:
1. If you are using any Retinol products i.e., Retin A or Renova, on your bikini line or brow area.
2. If you have used Accutane within the last 6 months.
3. If you have any kind of sunburn or laser burn on an area to be waxed.
4. If you have been diagnosed with any type of STD.
5. If you are diabetic, we will need a doctor’s note approving your waxing service.
Bikini Line Care After a brazilian or bikini wax, it is important to take care of the treated area. You should be as careful with your bikini line as you are with your face. It is a delicate area and should not be ignored.
Ingrown hairs Certain people have a tendency to develop ingrown hairs. Exfoliation helps. Using Waxing Gurus products for pre- and post-waxing can help lessen the occurrence of ingrown hairs, and is highly recommended for taking care of the bikini line area in general.
How to Prepare for Your Brazilian / Bikini Wax
For a Brazilian / Bikini Wax to be successful, the hair needs to be approximately a quarter of an inch long (14 days’ growth). This guideline applies especially to first time clients who have been shaving. Stubble is difficult to remove if it is too short.
It also helps to exfoliate your bikini line very gently with a loofah the night before your Brazilian / Bikini Wax. This will make the hair removal more successful.
Come to your appointment relaxed. Being anxious about the Brazilian / Bikini Wax can contribute to increased discomfort. If at any time you are too uncomfortable to continue with the waxing procedure, let your esthetician know immediately. We understand that everyone tolerates discomfort differently, but our clients definitely feel that the results outweigh any discomfort. Remember that best results are achieved if you arrive freshly showered. We do, however, offer sanitary wipes for your convenience. We maintain the highest hygienic standards, and pride ourselves in offering the finest personal care available.
