If you've never had a Brazilian bikini wax before (or it's been a while), you have probably heard horror stories and are super nervous. Well, this page is for you! My goal is to make the process as enjoyable as possible and encourage you to give waxing a try! For more information, check out my Instagram page!
I will take it from there!
You won't be sorry! Rest assured I will walk you through everything! You will be so glad you decided to get a Brazilian wax when you:
No problem! I suggest you start out with a Bikini Line New Client and go from there! You will be able to get a feel for my space and we can discuss any questions and/or trepidations you have regarding Brazilian waxing. If you decide then that you want to go for it, let's do it (for an additional charge)! If not, no worries! No need to feel pressured! You will still enjoy of the benefits of waxing the bikini line!
Well, yes - but it goes away in seconds! I prep the skin by cleansing and applying an organic oil to soften the skin. Next, I use high-quality hypoallergenic wax and advanced techniques to minimize pain. Lastly, I follow-up with a cooling gel to reduce any stinging and prevent breakouts. Get ready for excitement and relief that the service wasn't as bad as you thought!
Try to stay calm! I will engage you in conversation to distract you from what we're doing (and to get to know you, first and foremost). Deep breaths, chewing gum, and going to your "happy place" in your mind helps. You may take ibuprofen before but I suggest not drinking alcohol (it doesn't help, I promise).
Numbing cream can be applied but it's kind of a hassle because it typically needs to be applied 20-30 minutes prior to treatment. If you choose to use numbing cream, please arrive early to your appointment in order to remove it in the restroom. Any residue left over can make it more difficult for the wax to remove the hair.
Hair should be at least 1/4 inch long. That means no shaving for at least 3 weeks (which is the hardest part). Don't worry about it being too long - if it is I will trim!
At first, it is recommended that your treatments are done every 3 weeks for 3 sessions to get the hair on the same growth pattern. After that, every 4-6 weeks will be perfect to maintain your smooth skin.
Once the hair is on the same growth pattern, you can get up to 2 weeks with no hair! When it does start to grow back, it comes in soft and sparse. In another 2 weeks, those hairs are long enough to be waxed again.
I allow 30 minutes for first-time clients to get comfortable but the actual waxing time is around 15 minutes. Existing Brazilian clients are in-and-out in 15 minutes with around 10 minutes waxing time. I pride myself in being fast yet very thorough.
This question comes up a lot! Ideally, it's best to sustain from any physical activity for 24 hours that could cause you to sweat. Freshly exposed hair follicles are prone to irritation/infection if sweat gets in the pore. For first-time clients, the skin can be a bit sensitive for a day after the wax as well.
As a first-time Brazilian client, you will receive a "goodie" bag with a sample of PFB Ingrown Serum. This is to be used every day after the shower. You will also receive an exfoliating glove to use in the shower 2 to 3 times a week. It is important to use a body wash without coconut oil in it. Although it is great on other parts of the body, coconut oil is known to clog pores! I suggest using Vagisil PH Balance feminine wash for the pubic region. Having a consistent at-home exfoliation regimen will greatly reduce the occurrence of breakouts.
