The Brazilian Waxing Method
Body waxing has become a basic grooming ritual for many people, while for others, it remains an expression of one's sensuality. The Brazilian method of waxing is no exception and attracts all ages of women and men from all walks of life. Brazilian waxing, in particular, is a very curious subject, so we thought that it deserved its own FAQ page. If you are interested in having a Brazilian wax but have concerns or trepidation due to the intimate nature of this type of wax, I hope that the information found here will ease your mind. If you have a question that has not been addressed here, please use the information found on the contact page to reach Bare Boutique directly.
What is a Brazilian wax?
A Brazilian wax is a style of waxing that removes all of the hair from the bikini area to the backside. A typical Brazilian wax leaves absolutely no hair in one's bikini area, however, some choose to leave a small amount on the pubic bone. It is entirely up to the individual and we are able to accommodate nearly any request.
What should I expect during my service?
When you arrive at Bare Boutique for your scheduled appointment you will be greeted and asked to fill out a short questionnaire, such is the case with any waxing service provided, you will then be shown to the treatment room and given instructions to disrobe from the waist down, to lie on the facial bed and you will be provided with a modesty towel to cover yourself. At that time, you will be given a moment of privacy to ready yourself. There is absolutely no awkward positioning and your wax will be provided in a professional manner by an experienced Esthetician.
What should I expect to experience after my service?
Aside from soft, smooth skin, you will likely notice the following: follicular edema, tenderness and redness. You may also experience itchiness as well as small bumps, which will subside on their own in roughly 3 days. This is all very normal and nothing to be alarmed over. Applying a small amount of over the counter cortizone cream will ease your symptoms. Following the pre and post-waxing guide will reduce the likelyhood of experiencing irritation as well.
Is a Brazilian wax painful?
There is always some pain associated with body waxing and the bikini area is quite sensitive, so yes, there will be some discomfort involved. This can be minimized by following the instructions given in the pre-waxing guide.
How much time should I allow?
A full Brazilian wax takes between 15 and 35 minutes to complete.
Who may receive a Brazilian wax?
Any person above the age of 18 may be provided a Brazilian waxing service. This is due to the intimate nature of this particular style of waxing. Persons under the age of 18 may be provided with a basic or extended bikini wax but, due to the intimate nature of such services, will be required to provide written parental consent.
May I wax while pregnant?
Although there is more discomfort associated with waxing while pregnant due to hormonal fluctuations, it is perfectly safe and even recommended. Maintaining your usual standard of grooming may be difficult during the later stages of pregnancy and receiving regular waxing services alleviates you of the bother. There are also health advantages to bikini waxing while pregnant due to the greater susceptibility to certain bacterial infections.
May I receive a waxing service while on my cycle?
Due to the sensitivity caused by hormonal changes beginning the week prior to the start of your cycle, it is not recommended. However, this is left up to the individual and it is no issue to accommodate.
