4 Key Questions To Ask Before Getting A Brazilian Wax

Mythology abounds on how scary it is to get a Brazilian. The topic even makes for some good raunchy comedy.

So, if you’re one of those women that just hates hair “down there,” you owe it to yourself to get accurate information before you schedule your appointment.

That’s where we come in.

Here’s our list of recommendations for a smooth, beautiful Brazilian.

Don’t be shy about asking for the technician’s qualifications. Where did she get her training. How long has she been doing Brazilians? Does she have any testimonials?

Ask about the type of wax used. You want a hard wax. This is best for Brazilians. Make sure the wax adheres only to the hair, not to the skin. Otherwise, your pain factor will be greatly magnified.

Ask about hygienic practices. What is used to prevent the spread of bacteria, fungi, and the like? How do they ensure your health safety and that of the technician? Is everything disposable?

Ask about topical pain relief. Do they have a topical to apply to reduce pain? Do they have recommendations for reducing pain before you get to your appointment?

Any reputable spa will welcome these questions and encourage more. We sure do!

We love to show, with enormous pride, our technique for Brazilian waxing, our hygiene practices, our experience, and the top-of-the-line wax we use to ensure a great experience for you!

5 Reasons You Should Not Let Your BFF Wax Your Eyebrows!

5 Reasons You Should Not Let Your BFF Wax Your Eyebrows!

You may not think about it much, but eyebrows can make or break your entire look! You can have gorgeous eye make-up, but it’s completely ruined if your brows look like a hairy beast!

Of course, there is the other end of the spectrum, waxing brows too thin. Today’s style is a full, natural-looking brow. Extremely thin brows are a stark contrast and look very unnatural.

Because eyebrows are so important to your face and your overall look, it’s really important to have a trained professional wax them.

Here’s what we look at before we ever touch your brows:

1. The natural shape of your brow—It’s best not to work against nature. Instead, we follow her lead.

2. Your face shape—The shape of your face is equally important to gorgeous brows. The wrong brow shape can make your face look more narrow, wider, or just plain flat!

3. The arch of your brow—Many people put the arch in the wrong place and that works against your whole look. We have a tried-and-true technique that always puts the arch exactly where it belongs.

4. Stopping point—It’s important to know just where to end your brow. You don’t want it too long or it will make your eye area look droopy. If they are too short, brows will look weirdly rectangular.

5. Plucking—We keep this to a bare minimum. Over plucking will eventually create a thin brow and you don’t want that. Only pluck once every 3 weeks.

Waxing that enhances your whole look takes skill, training, and experience, and that’s what we do best!

A trip to the beach comes with a lot of concerns before actually getting there. You worry about what sunscreen to use, which swimsuit to wear, and the number one cause for distress, do you have a smooth and hairless bikini area.

The only way to do that is to get a bikini wax. But because bikini waxing can be uncomfortable, and for some, embarrassing, we go the extra mile for our clients.

At Adore Skin & Body Therapy, you are draped at all times and we use a disposable G-string to add to your comfort. The G-string actually helps us to do a more precise job as you can show us the line of your swimsuit using the G-string as a guide. This allows us to style your wax to your needs.

Next is the wax itself. You won’t find this kind of wax in a convenience store. Our wax does not adhere to your skin, only the hair, which means less discomfort you. We also apply a pre-oil to soften your skin and reduce irritation.

As highly trained and experienced wax professionals, we know that women are more sensitive to pain around the time of their menstrual cycle. That’s why we encourage you to schedule your bikini wax a week before or after your period.

Lastly, you can rest assured that hygiene is our top priority. We use only disposable panties and we never, ever double dip wax spatulas!

A few quick minutes in our experienced care and you’re off to enjoy your flawless wax!

Sometimes our clients tell us they try to wax at home, often with disastrous results. Most people don’t realize that waxing is a skill. It’s not as easy as it looks!

If experience is one-half of a successful waxing experience, then the other half is the product. Store brands are not always as effective in removing hair, requiring several applications, and that causes unnecessary irritation.

What’s worse, convenience store waxes adhere to your skin taking off the top layer with the wax, exposing it to possible infection.

Our wax does no such thing. It adheres only to the hair. You can imagine the difference that makes in your overall waxing experience!

With our professional salon wax, you get the added benefit of soothing agents to prevent inflammation and irritation.

Because we have been professionally trained and have years of know-how, your waxing appointments are quick and as hygienic as humanly possible without unnecessary pain.

It’s experience that pays you back!

Got questions about getting a Brazilian? Great! We’ve got answers. Here’s our list of what to do before and after your Brazilian wax.

Before Your Brazilian:
DO let the hair grow ¼ to ½ an inch—no longer! This is the ideal length for less pain and a quicker wax session.

DO help prevent ingrown hairs by gently exfoliating the area several days before your appointment.

DO be very clean. Make sure you shower the day of your wax to help prevent infection. You’ll feel more comfortable and so will your wax technician.

DO take an anti-inflammatory such as ibuprofen a half-hour beforehand, if you’re very sensitive.

DON’T schedule your appointment for about a week before or during your period, you’ll be much more sensitive, causing more pain.

DON’T apply any creams or lotions before your wax. You’ll get better results if your skin is dry.

After your Brazilian:
DO soothe the area with cool compresses once you get home.

DO wash the area twice daily if you are prone to developing red bumps or ingrown hairs. Apply an over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream for a few days after your wax.

If you develop bumps, DON’T ever pick or squeeze them! This could lead to scarring. DO apply hydrocortisone and benzoyl peroxide gel, pads or wash (all available in your pharmacy without a prescription).

DON’T wear tight underwear or clothing in synthetic materials to prevent irritation. It’s best to stick to natural fabrics that breathe.
