What is a Brazilian wax?

Brazilian waxing refers to hair removal around the anus, perineum and vagina. To some people it means removing all the hair from the bikini area, and to others it means leaving a strip or triangle at the top. 

This is a very intimate type of waxing and will only be performed after careful consultation. How closely you trim, shave or wax your pubic hair is a personal preference. You should do whatever makes you comfortable, whether it's a bare look, a more natural look, or something in between.

Why go to this extreme?

It allows women to comfortably wear revealing swimwear and lingerie. It also feels very clean and incredibly smooth. Shaving grows back prickly, itchy, and thick after a wax your hair grows in smooth and sparse. Once you try it, you will see why.

Can a man get a Brazilian bikini wax?

Many men are waxing rather than shaving to achieve a smooth genital region.  Yes, men can get either a standard bikini wax or a Brazilian and are taken on as clients only after a consultation.  Please call to book this service, do not book it on-line.

Will it hurt?

Yes a bit... we are ripping hair out of follicle.  We are experienced esthetician and help this process to be less painful. If your worried about pain sometimes you can be more sensative around your period so it is sugguest you donn't get waxed 4 or less days before your period.fortable for you. If you do decide to wax during your menstrual cycle, you must wear a tampon. The pain of a brazilian waz really isnt that bad and if you cant handle it we can stop at any time.

How long will the results last?

Results can last 2 to 4 weeks depending on your hair re-growth rate.  In most cases, hair growth is minimal during the first week or two and noticeably increases in the third and fourth week. Heat stimulates hair growth, therefore hair grows quicker in the summer than in the winter.  With regular waxing the length of time between treatments will increase, so don't be discouraged if you get a quick re-growth after your first wax.  Continued waxing results in fine, sparse hair re-growth.

What do I wear during this waxing?

A Brazilian wax will be done without any draping.  A towel is provided if you need it.

What is the procedure for Brazilian waxing?

If hair is more than  the service will start with trimming the hair, then wax is applied a little at a time.  The hair is removed and the procedure continues.  The wax used for this procedure is hard wax and does not require a muslin strip, meaning it is applied to the hair to be removed, it binds around the hairs, and is pulled off after it dries.  The wax is made for sensitive skin, so it's great for bikini/Brazilian waxing. While waxing, it's best to pull the skin tight, so you may be asked to help stabilize an area with your hand.   Stray hairs may also be tweezed.

What are the possible side effects of waxing and how can they be minimized?

Although we can not predict or guarantee who may react, most clients do not experience reactions beyond redness and minor irritation. Hair may break at the root during waxing, causing some hairs to grow out faster.  Please follow these guidelines to minimize irritation and possible break outs.

         Avoid the sun immediately after waxing and please wear sun screen; recently waxed areas are prone to hyperpigmentation (permanent darkening of the skin) if exposed to the sun.

         Avoid heavy exercise for at least 24 hours after waxing.

         Avoid saunas, steam rooms, whirlpools and other heated sources for at least 48 hours.

         Do not use exfoliating products (AHAs, scrubs, etc) and loofas for at least 24 hours after waxing as they might further irritate your skin.

         Avoid tight clothing after waxing, especially in the waxed areas. Tight clothing may result in irritation and ingrown hairs

         Regular exfoliation may be helpful to remove dead skin so your hairs can get out above the surface of the pores and not become ingrown.

         Routine waxing helps the skin get accustomed to the procedure and may minimize irritation

         Unfortunately, no hot bath, hot shower or oral sex for 10 hours after a Brazilian.  While your pores are open, they are vulnerable to irritation by the extreme temperatures and infection by bacteria.
