Benefits of Getting a Brazilian Wax
A traditional Brazilian wax removes all of your pubic hair from your nether-region. There are also modifications of Brazilian waxes that leave various amounts and shapes of hair depending on your personal preference, such as a straight “landing strip” down the front. Another option or variation is a Bikini wax, in which just the hair that is right around the bikini line and onto the legs is removed. A bikini wax is an excellent place to start if a full Brazilian seems a bit intimidating for your first try.
Immediate, Lasting and Amazing Results
Once you’ve received your Brazilian wax, you will immediately notice the nice smooth and soft feel that shaving does not offer. Waxing also minimizes ingrown hairs, and of course completely eliminates razor burn and bumps. When a Brazilian wax is done properly by a skilled professional, it will last for 4 weeks. At about the 3 week mark after your wax, you will start to notice minimal hair growth, and at 4-5 weeks you will be ready for your next wax. Until then, enjoy the no-maintenance smoothness of your Brazilian wax.
Reduced Hair Growth
After your first wax, your hair re-growth will be significantly minimized. Hair grows back much softer and finer than when shaving. You will be amazed at how much less hair has come back after you’ve started waxing. The longer you keep receiving regular Brazilian waxes, the less hair you will have each and every time.
The Pain…it’s not as bad as you think!
Ok, so yeah it’s not the most comfortable experience in the world. You are still getting your hair pulled out. But the pain is fleeting, once you’re done you feel great. It can also be minimized by choosing your waxing technician with care. Definitely go to a licensed aesthetician who has plenty of experience performing Brazilian waxes. She will know the techniques to keep the pain level down, as well as be able to work quickly to get you done fast, which (trust me) is far preferable. The type of wax used can also play a factor in your comfort level. A soy based soft wax called Nu-Free is my favorite. It adheres only to the hair, not the skin as some waxes do, allowing the entire hair to be removed completely from the follicle and eliminating any additional pulling or tugging, which will greatly reduce your discomfort. Finally, always know the first wax is the worst. Once you come in for your second wax, you will have less hair to remove, and your hair follicles will have relaxed some, allowing the hair to come out with ease. The immediate and long lasting results will definitely have you feeling that short amount of discomfort was well worth it.
How to prepare for a Brazilian Wax
The most important factor is the length of the hair. Ideally hair should be ¼ to ½ inch long. Any shorter and the wax will not be able to grab it and it will be left behind. When hair is much longer than ½ inch, it becomes more difficult to remove, which in turn causes more discomfort. If you’ve been shaving, stop shaving and let it grow in for at least 2 weeks for optimal results. If it has been growing for awhile take scissors or trimmers and cut it down to about ½ inch, especially along the curve of the upper lip. If you are within a few days of starting your period, or on it, you may be more sensitive. I would recommend waiting until a few days after it stops to receive your wax. If you are using any products that sensitize the skin in that area (such as retinols), discontinue use 5-7 days prior to the wax. Consult your aesthetician about exact time frame while scheduling your appointment. Some skin conditions present in the area to be waxed that would be contraindications include, but are not limited to… sunburn, extremely dry skin, eczema, psoriasis, open or unhealed sores.
Hopefully this has been informative and answers any questions you have about receiving a Brazilian wax. Please feel free to call me with any others, or to schedule an appointment. I have over 10 years of experience performing Brazilians and understand how personal and intimidating it can be. I always do my very best to make sure you are comfortable and that your experience is a breeze!
