Bathing suit season is upon us and you may be wondering if you need to step up your grooming game in your more sensitive areas. Along with underarm and leg waxing, a bikini wax or Brazilian wax will allow you to feel confidently hair free this summer.
So here are some of our most frequently asked questions when it comes to waxing below the belt:
- What is the difference between a Bikini Wax, a Full Bikini Wax and a Brazilian Wax?
–Removes the hair just to the pantie line. Imagine you are wearing a classic pair of underwear, a Bikini wax would remove the hair that comes outside of your panty line. This does not include any hair from the inner thigh area.
–Removes the hair just inside the panty line and inner thigh area. This would remove the same as a Bikini wax, plus about one inch just inside the pantie line, plus hair coming out from the inner thigh to pantie line.
–Anything more than a Full Bikini. Can include all hair being removed. A Brazilian wax does not necessarily mean that all the hair is removed, although you can go for it all. This allows the client to customize the amount of hair they want left.
- How long will my wax last? What is the maintenance like?
There are three stages of hair growth, so each time you get a waxing service you are never removing ALL the hair from that area. Meaning there are some hairs that are under the surface waiting to make their appearance, plus the hair that is already out and ready to be waxed. Once you have received 3-4 waxing services about 3 weeks apart you should, theoretically, have waxed all of the hair. After that, your waxes will last longer, closer to 4-6 weeks.
- Will it hurt?
Pain for waxing services can vary person to person. Again, though, the more often you get waxing done, the less hair that needs to be removed and thus it will hurt less. If you are concerned about pain, or know that these services are painful for you to receive, you can take a pain reliever such as Tylenol before your service.
- What do I or don’t I wear to my appointment?
For a bikini wax or a full bikini wax you can wear your own underwear for the appointment, preferably a thong type, or we can provide a disposable pair of underwear. Some clients like to wear the same pair from home for their waxes since sometimes wax residue can be left on the fabric.
For a Brazilian wax, your Esthetician will give you a towel to cover up with and will ask you to remove your bottoms completely.
If you have more questions about any of our waxing services you can schedule a complimentary consultation with one of our Estheticians.
