Brazilian Wax FAQ
Have a question about getting a Brazilian wax? If we haven’t answered it in the FAQ’s click the button to ask us something else. We will email you a private answer.
Please don’t ask for a “back, sack & crack” it’s just not that funny. We realise you might be a little shy asking however we do this every day. Just ask for a male Brazilian and it will be fine.
Although we don’t ask the sexual orientation of our clients it’s our understanding that there’s no particular predisposition. We probably get more male clients from recommendations by their female partners than anything else but it’s really down to whether you want one or not.
All our therapists are female.
No, sorry! We have a strict policy of no guests in the treatment room. Our clinic is a professional environment and not the place to stage your stag party.
We don’t allow guests in the treatment room so your partner needs to wait until later for the surprise.
We can supply a male G-string if you wish (just ask your therapist) but generally it’s much easier to do the wax if you wear nothing below the waist. You will be draped with a towel and much of your privacy will be preserved by the draping during the wax.
We get you to do all the skin stretching and holds required. The therapists will let you know what to do.
It sometimes happens involuntarily and so long as nothing inappropriate happens the therapist will normally ignore and carry on. However we have strict rules for the health & safety of our therapists and should anything happen that can be considered “not normal” they have been instructed to stop the wax and simply leave the room. Someone will probably knock on the door and you will be asked to leave the clinic.
The longer the better but if you shave the area wait at least 2 to 3 weeks before waxing. A minimum of 2mm is needed for the wax to “grip” the hair. If the hair is too short it can make the wax more painful and a higher risk of hair breakage.
We recommend no heavy exercise, where you will break out in a sweat, for at least 12 hours to give the follicles time to heal and close (reduces chances of infection). Swimming, spray tanning, and saunas are not recommended within 12 hours of waxing. Wait 2 to 4 weeks after waxing for any deep exfoliation of the waxed area such as microdermabrasion, peels or laser treatments.
No, although things may be a little irritated for an hour or two after the wax so comfortable underwear may be wise but certainly not essential.
Of course ripping hair out of follicles isn’t going to be a completely comfortable experience. However, one of the reasons we have specialised in Brazilian waxing for so many years, is because we have found ways and waxes that reduce the pain – a lot. Then we train our therapists how it’s done. So many of our first-time Brazilian clients tell us of their surprise at how little it hurt. If you are tired or nervous it can be more of a challenge so we suggest you pop a Panadol (but not ibuprofen because it’s a blood thinner) 20 minutes before your wax.
We would prefer you didn’t. Numbing creams can interfere with the application of the wax or, in certain situations, cause allergic reactions, which can look like a reaction to the wax.
Ingrown hairs are common after Brazilian waxing because of the “curly” nature of this type of hair (the new hair curls under the skin instead of growing out through the skin). We will recommend one of our ingrown hair prevention products and regular exfoliation with a quality mitt as the usual course of action.
No. Waxing pulls the hair from the follicle weakening the root. So, if anything it will grow back weaker, more sparse and easier to remove next time.
No, but it will become more sparse and have a finer texture if you wax on a regular basis.
Please don’t!! The hair will be shorter when you come in for your next visit and the wax won’t grab as well. Also, shaving creates ingrown hairs, redness and irritation. If you have an urge to de-clutter make your appointments every four weeks instead of five.
We do get asked this question all the time and the answer is ABSOLUTELY NOT! We have waxed clients in their early seventies. You are never too old, so get your wax on!
Hmmm there are arguments for both sides on this one. Alcohol is a stimulant and can make your skin more sensitive to waxing while others say they don’t notice this. If you are embarrassed about baring your “bits”, a glass of wine will may help you relax??
Yes it certainly can!! Certain medications such as Accutane thin out the skin making it more likely for you to be bruised or burned during your waxing session. If you are unsure about your medication please call us and speak to one of our therapists before you come in. We have quite good knowledge of which medicines are problematic because we need to know this to provide safe laser treatments.
Plan on waiting at least 24 hours after your treatment to tan. And do not come in right after a fresh spray tan because the wax will take it right off.
Double dipping is when a waxing therapist dips the waxing spatula back into the wax pot after using it on you (or someone else) – possibly allowing the spread of infection. We dip a spatula into the wax only once and then throw it in the trash, so the wax being applied is always sterile. We also use a fresh wax cartridge (strip wax) for each client and wipe surfaces with medi-wipes between clients. You can enjoy your clean, smooth skin without the worries from going to the scary waxing places.
We get a lot of “emergency” Brazilians for that “hot date” and while you might want to share your new look with a loved one right away, we always suggest waiting at least 24 hours. Friction and perspiration can aggravate the skin and your body is most susceptible to outside bacteria that might cause an infection of the hair follicle known as folliculitis. If you just can’t avoid any action make sure to use (a gentle) anti-bacterial wash as soon as possible afterwards.
If you bump up after a wax, call us! We will probably instruct you to apply a little cortisone or calendula cream on the area. In some cases, we’ll have you come into the clinic so we can treat the area. Again, we cannot emphasise how important it is to call us about this.
