WHAT IS BRAZILIAN WAXING?

Brazilian waxing involves the removal of all pubic hair (leaving a “landing strip” is called a Hollywood), including the hair from the bottom.

HOW LONG DOES A BRAZILIAN WAX TAKE?

Between 15-30 mins depending on if it is your first time.

SHOULD I TRIM THE HAIR BEFORE A BRAZILIAN WAX?

No, more often than not, people trim too much. If your hair is too short, the wax may not remove the hair completely.

CAN I BE WAXED DURING MY MENSTRUAL CYCLE?

Yes, however please ensure that you are wearing a tampon. Just keep in mind you will be more sensitive at this time of the month

WHAT DO I WEAR DURING THIS WAX?

Underwear is not worn with a Brazilian wax. Our Therapist will make sure you feel comfortable during the process with our discrete and private treatment rooms. This is our profession; we have seen the Brazilian area many times before. How often do I wax? This depends on the area being waxed and how fast your hair grows. On average for the Brazilian area, 3-4 weeks is recommended.

HOW LONG DOES THE HAIR NEED TO BE BEFORE I GET WAXED?

The ideal length for the hair to be removed is 2-3mm in length. Am I likely to suffer from any skin reactions? You may suffer minor red or blotchy skin after any type of waxing. This normally lasts for around 2 hours although there have been some cases on more sensitive skin which might last up to 24 hours. You can take an anti-histamine tablet 1-2 hours before waxing to minimise redness and hives.

WHAT DO I DO BEFORE AND AFTER A WAX?

Before a wax
Make sure your skin is free from moisturisers and deodorants. Advise your therapist if you are taking any medication that may affect your skin during the wax such as Roaccutane, AHA, Renova, Retin-A or Corticosteroids such as Hydrocortisone, Prednisone, Kenalog and Elocon

Avoid sun exposure on the area to be treated and make sure you haven’t waxed or shaved 3 weeks prior to your appointment.

After a wax

  • Avoid sun exposure to treated area
  • Have a cool/warm shower stay away from hot water
  • Avoid chlorinated pools
  • Avoid sex on the day/night of the Brazilian wax

We recommend you wear light loose dark clothing until your shower.

WHAT DO I NEED TO BE CAREFUL ABOUT?

Please ensure your body is free from deodorant and moisturiser before your spray tan. After your spray tan avoid activities that will make you perspire. Perspiration prior to showering will affect your tan. So no gym or sports until you shower. Be mindful of washing your hands, try using a hand sanitiser or baby wipes instead.

CAN I GET A SPRAY TAN WHILE PREGNANT?

There are no tests showing that spray tanning is harmful during pregnancy. Check with your doctor.

WILL MY TAN WASH OFF?

When you first shower after your spray tan it will seem that your tan has washed off, this is just the bronzer agent that aids the spray tanner in applying the tan.

I CAN’T SEE ANY COLOUR CHANGE AFTER SHOWING 2 HOURS AFTER APPLYING ‘SUPER NATURAL 2 HOUR TAN’?

Super Natural 2 hour tan can be washed off after 2 hours, but you still need to wait the 6-8 hours for the colour to develop.

CAN I EXTEND THE SPRAY TAN TO LAST LONGER IF I HAVE A FEW EVENTS ON?

Yes, you can apply a tan X-tend to your tan which will help your tan last that little bit extra or it can double up as a gradual tan if you don’t have a spray tan on.
