Brazilian waxing is ideal for women and men who want to completely remove hair from their entire bikini area. When done properly, this procedure has long lasting results (compared to shaving), but there are some things you can do to prepare your skin for the procedure and minimize the pain and potential irritations that may appear afterwards.
What to expect from brazilian waxing
The most important thing to consider when making an appointment for brazilian wax services in Gold Coast is to find a licensed, experienced technician to perform this job. The best way to find one is to go to professional salons or spas and ask any questions you need in order to feel comfortable. Most salons will ask you to fill out a questionnaire if you are a new client and never had this service done before, simply to ensure that you are a good candidate for waxing. You will then go to a private room and lie on a bed. Before the actual waxing starts, the technician will explain everything you need to know about the process and what to expect from it. Depending on your skin type, the technician will then clean the area and apply oils or powder to protect the skin. Make sure that your hair has the required length, because if it is too short, the wax won’t be able to grab it, and if it is too long, it may break instead of being plucked, and it may also result in a more painful procedure.
However, you won’t be able to benefit from brazilian wax services when you are on your period. Moreover, it is recommended to wait for a couple of days before and after, as during that time your skin becomes more sensitive and waxing can be more painful. You should also take a warm shower and gently exfoliate the bikini area before going to the appointment, but don’t use any lotions. Even if this type of waxing is well tolerated in general, you should expect some discomfort or mild pain. If you are worried about the pain, you can take a painkiller half an hour before the waxing begins.
As far as care after the procedure is done is concerned, make sure you take a quick shower instead of a hot bath until the next day, don’t wear tight clothing items, don’t touch the skin to prevent irritations, and don’t go swimming or spend time in a sauna for the next two days. After two days time, you can use a gentle exfoliating lotion to prevent and get rid of ingrown hairs.
