If you’re new to the whole waxing process, you might feel just a bit nervous before your appointment. Don’t worry! Our kind and helpful Aestheticians are here to help you every step of the way. If you’re wondering what to do before a Brazilian wax, we’ve got you covered with some easy-to-follow dos and don’ts.
DO shower before your Brazilian or Brozilian Wax appointment.
DO exfoliate the morning of your appointment. If you’re thinking about what to do before a Brazilian wax, exfoliation is a great option. Removing the dead skin will loosen and help the wax grab the hair easier. Just don’t scrub too hard––that can make the area more sensitive.
DO pop an Ibuprofen a half hour before your wax. IBUprofen is awesome when used correctly. It can take the edge off of pain, and it also reduces swelling, so you’ll thank yourself later!
Ladies: it should be high on your checklist of what to do before a Brazilian wax to figure out when your period is coming. If possible, avoid waxing the week of your period. The hormones involved will change the waxing experience. You definitely can get waxed before or during your period, just know you're more sensitive! We are happy to see our clients anytime that works for you. If it’s that time of the month, plan to wear a cup, or here at The Brazilianaire Studio we provide clean tampons for your convenience. Just please remember to tuck in your string!
So many of our clients ask what to do before a Brazilian wax to make it less painful. DO purchase our signature numbing cream ahead of time if you want MAX time for it to process. We always provide a complimentary numbing sample at the beginning of your Brazilian, Bikini or Brozilian Waxes!
DO check your medicine cabinet. You should NOT get waxed IF you're taking or applying: antibiotics, retinol, accutane, cancer medications or skin thinning products. If you are using any of the above, cancel your appointment immediately.
If you’d like to know what to do before a Brazilian wax to keep hair away for longer, DO add a Hair Inhibitor add-on! This luxury enzyme is created to "suffocate" the hair follicle so it WILL NOT grow back!
Now you know what to do before a Brazilian wax, but what do you do afterwards?
DO NOT wear restrictive clothing to your appointment. Bring clean undergarments, or consider leaving yourself bare under your clothing after your wax to let everything breathe and heal properly.
DO NOT have sex, go swimming, exercise, sauna or hot tub 24 hours after your wax.
