If you’re considering getting a Brazilian wax, chances are you’ve already done some research on the best places to get one, how much they cost, and what happens before and after your appointment. If you’re still feeling nervous about your upcoming appointment, though, these tips will help put your mind at ease. No matter what your experience level with waxing is, following these steps will make the whole process easier and more enjoyable for you.
Things to Consider Before Booking an Appointment: Length of hair.
Hair length is important for getting your best result possible from a Brazilian wax.
Generally speaking, longer hair can be removed more easily than shorter hair since it often sticks up in all directions and holds onto wax better. If you have longer or coarser hair, it’s also important to let your waxer know ahead of time so the waxer will help to trim the hair, and will choose the appropriate wax to help you remove the hair according to your situation.
Before Your Appointment
When you’re about to get your pubic hair waxed, it’s natural to feel anxiety. In fact, with a little preparation on your part, it can be an experience that makes you feel empowered and ready for any situation.You will need to do a little job before you step in for your Brazilian waxing.So, here some things you can do before your appointment:shower and exfoliate;keep the area dry;comfortable cloth;grab a pain killer and knowing what you want.
At The Salon
In addition to a nice manicure, pedicure, facial and massage, your professional waxing salon experience should be as relaxed and comfortable as possible. To ensure that you feel confident and ready before your first waxing appointment, do your research ahead of time. Check out YouTube videos or talk to friends who have already been through it. Both will give you an idea of what to expect during your wax session. If you’re feeling nervous about getting an intimate wax—whether it’s for bikini area or full-body—consider speaking with a professional in advance for advice and tips on how to relax. They can also help ease any concerns you might have about pain or discomfort associated with a professional bikini or body wax.
Following your wax, you will most likely experience some irritation of your skin. To minimize redness and itching, a soothing mixture of aloe vera and witch hazel is a perfect after-care remedy. The next day you should feel fine to return to normal activities, but it’s important to remember that it is possible for spot bleeding to occur. If you notice any abnormal bleeding or unexpected pain in those first few days, contact your aesthetician immediately. It’s also crucial that you avoid vigorous exercise for at least a few days following treatment due to an increased risk of infection.
Tips for Reducing Pain and Discomfort Afterward
One of your best options for reducing discomfort is to simply schedule your wax for a time when you’re not in pain. That said, if you are in pain (or if you’re coming off a menstrual cycle) and need to get waxed anyway, try taking ibuprofen or acetaminophen about an hour before your appointment. Also, drink plenty of water that day and eat foods that are rich in magnesium—nuts, beans, and leafy greens are all good options. Apply a warm washcloth to your bikini area right before going into treatment; it’ll help relax your skin. Finally, talk with one of our aestheticians beforehand and make sure they can provide breaks as needed.
