Before & After Care

Before wax:
  • If you are worried about the pain, take a pain reliever about 30 mins before
  • Please come showered and loose comfortable clothing
  • Exfoliate the area 2-3 days before waxing
  • Make sure you have 2-3 weeks of hair growth before appointment
  • No tanning (outside, bed, or spray) for 24 hours
Immediately after wax:
It is normal immediately after your wax for a little bit of redness and a prickly heat type rash to appear. This should disappear after a few hours and is normally due to a histamine reaction. Because waxing removes the at the root, it’s important that you keep the area clean and bacteria free. This means:
  • No sunbathing for at least 24 hours
  • No swimming, spas or saunas for 24 hours
  • Avoid applying any topical for at least 12 hours
  • Also, avoid touching the waxed area to ensure it remains bacteria free
  • No tanning (outside, bed, or spray) for 24 hours
3-5 Days after waxing:
As your skin closes over the follicles, the next consideration is to ensure you prevent ingrown hairs. This is when new, often softer hair can get trapped under the skin. A few simple measures can easily avoid this situation.
  • Use a soft brush or exfoliating glove to gently buff the are every 2-3 days
  • Use an exfoliating product, I have two to choose from

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between a bikini and Brazilian?

Simply put, a Brazilian is the removal of all hair in pubic area, front and back. You can choose to leave a patch of hair.

How long does my hair have to be?

Your hair needs to be about 1/2 inch long in the area you wish to be waxed. If your hair is too short, I will have to reschedule your appointment.

How long will the wax last?

This depends on a few factors including but not limited to hair texture, ethnicity, and frequency of waxing appointments. Following your initial appointment, you will have 1-2 weeks before you see regrowth. However, you may not be completely smooth after just one wax. After 3-4 consistent waxes there will be less stray hairs and more time before you see new growth.

Should I trim before my appointment?

Absolutely not! The longer the hair is, the better (and easier) your wax will be.

Can I get waxed on my period?

Yes, you may be more sensitive than normal. Please be sure to shower and wear a clean tampon.

Can I get waxed while pregnant?
