Brazilian Wax Santee
At Waxing and Skincare by Celeste in Santee, we specialize in Brazilian waxing. Our spa has a unique way of doing our intimate waxing services. Our specialists use a combination of 100% bees hard wax, eucalyptus oil infused soft wax, and our popular made by us, 100% natural sugar wax (sugar paste) to perform our style of Brazilian waxing in Santee. With our experience and feedback from our clients, we have narrowed down which types of wax are best suited for each specific part of the body. Taking into account pain factor and efficiency, we do our depilation a little different from other spas. There is no such thing as painless depilation, but the pain can be minimized with the proper technique from our depilation experts and also using the right kind of wax. Our sugar paste is what helps our clients minimize the pain. We don’t use imported wax and believe in buying local, supporting local business, purchasing from U.S. based business, and we only use 100% made in the USA products! Our sugar paste is 100% natural and completely safe for any type of skin, especially for sensitive skin. Intimate depilation is more and more popular each year and our spa is dedicated to allowing everyone to try it at least once.
WHAT IS A BRAZILIAN WAX?
There are many clients who call or visit us for hair removal services and many times they don’t know exactly what they are asking for. This intimate hair removal service should not be confused with a bikini wax. This type of service removes all hair in the pubic area all the way back to your anus. Complete hair removal just like you came into the world. This procedure has many different names such as full bush, Hollywood, kitty, European, playboy, full, sphinx, California or “landing strip” versions. Are all these names confusing yet? The different names can be very confusing indeed. When you visit us simply tell us what you want to be removed and what you want to keep and our estheticians will take care of you. When you are finished, you can give your service its own custom name!
HOW TO PREPARE FOR THE BEST BRAZILIAN WAXING
WHAT DO TO BEFORE YOUR FIRST SANTEE BRAZILIAN WAX EXPERIENCE
If you really want to see a smooth, clean pubic region, then there is no better option than the full Brazilian. Introduced in the late ’80s, it’s become the “go to” solution for women everywhere who want to get rid of unwanted hair on the front, back, and areas in between. If you have recently scheduled your first appointment, then you might be a little nervous. Here are some things you can do to ensure you are prepared for what is to come.
PREPARING YOUR SKIN AND HAIR FOR A BRAZILIAN WAX
In order to reduce pain, there are two important things that need to be done. First, you must exfoliate the skin when coming in. This will help reduce the chance of pain and also ingrown hairs. Secondly, having long hair will be more painful. The perfect hair length should be between 4-6 weeks long. We DO NOT trim hair and we simply wax regardless or hair length. The only time we will not provide hair removal is if the hair is too short. We recommend having at a minimum of 3 weeks of hair growth when coming to our salon. If your hair is too short, you will not get the results you want and will also be more painful. We recommend you come in every 4-6 weeks for optimum results.
HOW TO REDUCE PAIN BEFORE A BRAZILIAN WAX
Most people are worried about the pain that comes from hair removal. There is no denying that the first time will hurt more than any other. Your following sessions will hurt less and less with time. It’s always a good idea to take some form of pain medication 1 hour before your appointment.
One of the most important things you can do before your first hair removal session is to prepare yourself mentally. This particular hair removal service involves removing all hair in the pubic region, anus, and buttocks. We understand it can feel a little uncomfortable. We are professionals so we make sure we provide some coverage to make you feel comfortable.
Many people choose to shower just before they go in for their appointment. It’s not mandatory, but it makes some people feel more comfortable. Can you wax during your period? Yes, and we recommend being clean when you come to see us. We do advise not to come in during heavy days. We do provide baby wipes for anyone who needs them also. When in doubt give us a call. The golden rule is always cleanliness.
Hair Removal Aftercare
How you care for yourself afterward is just as important as what you do beforehand. We recommend avoiding sexual intercourse, sun, exposure, sauna, hot tubs, swimming pools, beaches, lakes, rivers and to do with water. for 48 hours. This might be difficult with your new, smooth body, but friction, sweat, and bacteria can lead to irritation, discomfort, and infection and we suggest to follow our recommendations. If you are planning on going on vacation, we recommend NOT to get waxed the day before leaving just to make sure you have not reaction. This is mainly for a first time client.
Wax While Pregnant
Can it be done? Yes, of course, we get women from the 1st trimester, 2nd trimester, and 3rd trimester come and get their Brazilian wax. Some even come days before delivering. During this time women do tend to be more sensitive, but many do continue doing hair removal. With our hormones doing crazy during our pregnancy many women to tend to grow even more hair during this period and many choose to wax. Don’t worry, we do get many women doing waxing while pregnant.
So how old do you have to be to get a Brazilian wax? If you are 18 or older you are good. If you are a minor you will need one of your parents to sign our consent form in order to get your hair removal done. This includes any hair removal service.
Can You Get A Wax During Your Period?
Listen we are all women here so we know how it goes. So can you get a Brazilian wax during your period? The answer is yes, yes of course. We recommend to wear a tampon, and cleanliness is a priority. Just be advised that you will feel a little more pain than normal. Take pain medication and if possible try to avoid any heavy days, but if you absolutely need your hair removal service (we know the feeling), just follow the rules above and our estheticians will love you for it!
How Long Will The Service Last?
You should expect to be at our spa for about 30 minutes.
How Does It Last?
That really depends on how fast your hair grows, but usually, it takes about 3 weeks.
I’m Gong On Vacation, When Should I Wax?
If you are going on vacation or need your wax for a special occasion (wedding, returning service members, date, etc) we recommend to wax 5-7 days before your special occasion. That way you are 100% back to normal, smooth, and looking your best.
Can I Get A Wax If I Have A Sun Burn?
The answer is no. We won’t wax you if you do. Let’s keep your skin on please.

“Definitely not going anywhere else. This place is the best. From the service itself to the front desk
“This place is amazing! I got my first Brazilian wax ever done by Kristine who was so nice and talked me through everything. And then just recently had my second wax by Marcela and she was incredibly sweet. Both were very detailed and took their time to make sure everything was perfect. I will definitely be returning here for future waxes.“
“I went there for the first time to get my second Brazilian ever and I loved it! Their staff is very friendly and they definitely know what they’re doing. I can confirm they use good quality products as my skin felt smooth and perfect afterward. I’ll be a regular and would totally recommend!“
“Hands down one of the best skincare and waxing spas. I was able to make my appointment within an hour of my call and the staff was professional and polite. My esthetician, Marcela, was awesome. She made sure I was comfortable and she was very particular. You can tell she is a perfectionist and loves her job“
“Celeste is so sweet. I had only gotten waxed a couple of times before meeting her and was always uncomfortable with it. Once I started going here so made me feel at ease and I go every 4-5 weeks now (that’s huge for me!). Her location is super cute and in a convenient location. She is quick and gets the job done in less than 30 minutes. Highly recommend going there for any facials or waxing needs.“
“My first time going in for a Brazilian! I was very nervous and worried about how much it was going to hurt! The staff was extremely helpful and Celeste made the process go as smoothly as possible. Very knowledgeable and kept my mind off the waxing 🙂 Of course it hurt, but was tolerable. I will definitely be going in again to see Celeste. I definitely recommend checking them out.“
