So what can I expect during my first Brazilian wax? Does it hurt? Will I be embarrassed? How long will it last? These are all questions frequently asked by clients who have never experienced a Brazilian wax. Yes, while stripping down naked in front of a stranger and putting your legs in vulnerable positions while having your genital hair removed may initially seem somewhat awkward, remember you are with a highly trained and experienced professional. She is not judging you and has actually seen people hairier than you! The experience is quick and professional and you will be surprised at just how fast you become comfortable with the situation.
Now about the pain. So your first Brazilian will be the most uncomfortable one, especially if you have been shaving for a long period of time. The good news is the more you wax the less it hurts. Even your second wax will be significantly less painful. Waxing every 4 to 6 weeks ensures the hair grows back slower, finer and sparser making it easier and less painful to remove. Exfoliating between waxes not only helps prevent ingrown hairs but will also make your waxing more comfortable. If you’re getting waxed with dead skin wrapped around the hairs it’s like pulling the hair out of a scab…OUCH! No dead skin and the hair glides out easily with minimal pain. So exfoliate! Exfoliate! Exfoliate!
You made it through your wax with your pride and your privates intact, now how long will this smoothness last? Everyone’s hair grows at a different speed, so how long your wax lasts will depend on your own personal rate of hair growth. The hair grows in three cycles so generally it willl take at least three waxes 4 to 6 weeks apart for the hair to all be on the same cycle leaving you hair free for a longer period of time, usually 2 to 6 weeks. Waxing is definitely the most effective and lasting method of hair removal for those hard to reach places not meant for a razor, making it an excellent option for keeping your bikini area smooth and hairless!
