Whether it’s beach time or not, Brazilian waxing has just become a thing… no matter how painful it looks and sounds like. However, this doesn’t mean that everyone’s having it. Some are still either scared or too shy to try this hair removal method and no one can blame them. After all, your hair is ripped off completely by a stranger… but I don’t want to make it sound more terrifying as it already is.
I mean, a Brazilian wax is surprisingly tolerable as how most people would describe it. Yes, there might be a bit of discomfort but that could be relieved by a painkiller. Also, it doesn’t last and you can go back to your normal routine in an instant. Also, you’ll be handled by a professional who’s done this more than once. On top of that, there are a few aftercare tips you can use to make it last longer and to avoid irritation and inflammation, so there’s really nothing to worry about. I know I got your attention already so if you want to know more about this grooming trend, just keep on reading.
What Is A Brazilian Wax?
Brazilian wax is a kind of wax service that removes the hair in and around the vagina and the anus. The esthetician may use hot wax, soft wax, wax strip, or a sugaring or a combination of these methods. Some people may want to leave a few areas bare and a mini landing strip but originally, this method is supposed to take all the hair off completely, the true Brazilian way.
The Brazilian wax has become a beauty trend that some women just can’t live without. It comes with a number of benefits, after all, that cannot be neglected. But despite its popularity, there are still who have little to no knowledge about it so to answer a few concerns, here are some questions that you guys frequently ask.
Brazilian Wax Frequently Asked Questions
What Is The Difference Between Bikini Wax And Brazilian Wax
As the name suggests, bikini waxing only takes away the hair around the bikini area. It doesn’t remove the entire fuzz in your Lady Garden. Brazilian waxing, on the other hand, is a hair removal method that rips all of the hair in the vagina, perineum, and anus.
Some of our clients are confused about this but we are always here to talk about what you want. When in doubt simply tell your esthetician what you want off and what you want to keep. You can call us for inquiries or head over to our website to book an appointment.
How Long Should The Hair Be For Brazilian Waxing?
If it’s too long, it will be too painful but if it’s too short, it will be a little tricky to pull it out. I recommend that you grow it for at least ¼ inch or 3 weeks minimum. If it’s your first time, you may visit us three weeks after shaving. Nonetheless, we have to use the right technique and a combination of waxes (soft wax, hard wax, and sugar wax) to ensure that all the hair will be removed.
To achieve smoother skin and finer hair, it’s ideal to have at least three waxing sessions first. Also, avoid using a razor to remove pubic hair as this will only encourage hair growth again — and we all know what happens after shaving the hair. It grows back thicker!
How Long Does A Brazilian Wax Last?
Typically, it lasts for about 3 to 6 weeks after the first Brazilian wax but then again, it depends on the person’s hair growth cycle. For some people, the hair may slowly grow back again after a week or two and may become more visible after three to four weeks.
The temperature also affects hair growth. During hot weather or summer, the hair grows faster compared to winter.
Like other beauty treatments, it requires regular sessions to achieve optimal results. Therefore, if you want a finer hair — or even a lesser hair growth — all you need to do is book an appointment with us now!
How Long Does Brazilian Waxing Take?
For first-timers, waxing may take a little longer, about 30 minutes; it also depends on the density of the hair growth. After a few sessions, it will only take around 30 minutes or less. Some places will rush you and do your Brazilian wax in 15 minutes or less. That is not really how we do things here. We take our time to get every single last hair and then we usually tweeze too. A Brazilian wax price is not usually cheap and to left with hair is unacceptable. Our Brazilian wax service is different since we do use a combination of soft wax, hard wax, and sugar wax to ensure you leave hairless. You might see some waxing spas that only use soft wax or hard wax, but in reality, all three types of wax have its pros and cons. We take advantage of their pros of each wax to get you the best Brazilian wax possible and our Brazilian wax reviews reflect the appreciate from our clients.
Is Brazilian Wax Painful?
We cannot deny the fact that waxing provides discomfort; however, it’s not as painful as what it seems — and most clients can attest to that. If you’re having doubts or if it’s your first, what you can do is take a painkiller before the session or go for bikini wax first just to know what it feels like. Bikini waxing will only remove a few hairs so it’s quicker and less painful. Someone who has experience will also know the proper technique to help reduce pain. Someone new will usually not have the experience to do the Brazilian effect and efficient. Another thing to consider the wax. We use a sugar wax for the majority part of the service since it sticks more the hair than your skin.
At Waxing By Celeste, every esthetician has been fully trained, experienced, and knowledgeable. They’ve learned the right waxing techniques to come out with fast and effective results. But to give you a heads up, the most painful area would be the pubic bone area while the least painful one is the area around the anus.
If you have more questions, feel free to give us a call and we’re more than willing to attend to your concerns.
Will Waxing Result To A Thicker, Darker Hair?
Nope. Absolutely, no. Unlike shaving, waxing removes the root of the hair follicles and over time, you may even notice that the fuzz in your vagina is not coarse or dark. After your first or second waxing session, you can easily notice that the hair is finer and quite sparse. However, the result may be affected by several factors such as hormones, hair growth cycle, temperature, or if you forgot and shaved it again.
When Is The Best Time To Have A Brazilian Wax?
The best time to have a Brazilian wax is after a week or so of your menstrual cycle when the skin is less sensitive. Also, be sure to have enough sleep and avoid nicotine, caffeine, and even stress as this can make your skin more sensitive, thus making it more painful during waxing.
Can You Have A Brazilian Wax On A Period?
In line with the statement above, you can still book for an appointment during your menstruation. It’s fine and safe; just be sure to wear a tampon for hygiene purposes. There’s really no problem when it comes to Brazilian waxing and period — in fact, the “pain” level is almost the same as when you don’t have your monthly visitor. You can even have a Brazilian wax even when you’re pregnant.
