Having your bikini area waxed for the first time can be a little distressing, so let me try to ease your mind a bit and walk you though it. When you make the appointment you should be really clear on what type of bikini waxing service you would like.
There are three types:
- Bikini – waxing around the panty line and inner thigh area.
- French bikini – waxing approximately two inches inside the panty line, working around the inner part of the thigh.
- Brazilian – waxing inside the panty line and inner thigh. Removing hair on the labia and on the buttocks. Removing hair from the pelvic area is optional; most women like it completely bare but some prefer to leave a small strip of hair.
To prepare – for the appointment, please cleanse thoroughly. You should wear loose-fitting pants and a pair of loose-fitting panties. This is important since the area will be very sensitive and tight-fitting clothing will not allow your skin to breathe and return to its normal pH level.
If you are very sensitive in that area take an Advil 30 minutes before coming in for your waxing services. That is if you are not allergic to Advil.
Do exfoliate – after a Brazilian Bikini Wax or Bikini Wax and if you are prone to ingrown hair then you will need to exfoliate your waxed area/s two days after you get waxed. Keep exfoliating two to three times a week using a sugar scrub and a washcloth or a loofah brush. This will prevent your pores from clogging up with bacteria, allowing hair to grow back freely and avoiding those pesky ingrowns. It also keeps your skin clean, soft and radiant.
Do go prepared – if it’s your first wax, or you haven’t been recently, you should trim your hairs to about 1/4″ (one-quarter of an inch).
Do relax – yes, because getting a Brazilian Bikini Wax or Bikini Wax done is easier then you think. Take a deep breath and then lie back and think of how sexy you will look without any hair for at least four weeks.
Do give it a go – if you don’t like the look it will all grow back but, like Gwyneth Paltrow was quoted as saying a Brazilian Wax could change your life for the better!
Please always remember to shower before coming in for a Brazilian or Bikini Wax, If you are not able to shower before coming in then please let us know and we will provide you with wipes.
When Not to Wax
Big Day? Special Occasion? I suggest you wax at least 3-4 days in advance before any BIG DAY. This will ensure that no redness appears in the area, especially if you are not used to waxing every month. As for re-growth, it depends on the hair texture and where you are being waxed. Facial waxing should be done every 12 to 14 days, and body waxing should be done every three to four weeks. However, if you’re in a warm climate for your BIG DAY, you may notice some hair re-growth.
I suggest you schedule waxing one week after the start of your period and avoid waxing one week before your period. This is recommended if you are waxing large areas such as legs and bikini/brazilian. These areas will be much more sensitive around that time of the month.
We will not be able to perform your waxing service or any other kind of waxing services under these conditions:
- If you are using any Retinol products i.e. Retin A, Renova etc. on your bikini line or brow area.
- If you are using Accutane.
- If you have any kind of sun burn or laser burn on the area to be waxed.
- If you have any kind of STD whatsoever.
