These Brazilian waxing tips will help you prepare your skin, take the pain factor down, get an idea of what to expect and minimize bumps and irritation afterwards. A lot of women and men opt for this service because they like the feeling of the entire bikini area being totally, or almost hair-free. While you need to be cautious any time you remove hair, because of its specialty nature, it should be treated with extra care.

Make sure you have enough hair to be waxed. The length should be ¼ of a inch, which is about the length of a grain of rice. So about 10-14 days of no shaving. If the hair is too long it will hurt more even if the Aesthetician trims.

You may take a pain killer like Tylenol 30-45 min before. You can take Ibuprofen/Asprin but it is a blood thinner.

*Know exactly what you want. This service removes hair from the behind and between your legs. Sometimes a strip of hair or triangle is left in the front. Don't be afraid to communicate exactly how much hair you want gone.

A little pain. Everyone is different in their pain tolerance, but some discomfort is generally expected.

The hair will remain gone for about 2 weeks then grow for 1-2 weeks. So Maintenance is to wax every 3-4 weeks with no shaving/tweezing in-between


Post treatment

Watch your fashion choices. Don't wear tight pants or panties for the next few days.

avoid working out/sweating after service for 24 hours to help keep bacteria down.

Too hot. No tanning beds, saunas or steam rooms for the next 24 hours.

Exfoliate. Two full days later, if there isn't any redness use a mild exfoliator. This helps prevent ingrown hair.  Use a bath Poof to gently exfoliate skin. Can use dry brush or exfoliating glove to gently slough off the dead skin every few days.

Fight the bumps.  If you get any ingrown hairs try Tend Skin, a huge favorite for getting rid of pesky ingrowns. I have some in stock so just ask.

Maintain waxing every 3-4 weeks. It will help reduce unwanted hair growth as well as the discomfort you may have experienced the first appointment.  The more you wax regularly the thinner the hair will be, so it will be easier to wax.
