Whether you’re getting ready for your first bikini or Brazilian wax, or are looking for tips and tricks to make your next bikini wax as luxurious of an experience as possible, we’ve got you covered! Most ladies find themselves more pleased with the results of waxing than other temporary hair removal options like shaving, epilation, and hair removal creams. The benefits of this service are as follows:
Skin Health: Not only does waxing remove hair, it’s a physical exfoliation that removes lifeless surface skin cells, which means you’re receiving hair removal and skincare all in one.
Smoother Skin: Because you are removing hair from the root and exfoliating the skin, after a wax, you’ll find you have much smoother skin with little to no irritation.
Longer-Lasting Results: Since your hair is being removed by the root, it will take much longer to grow back than with shaving.
Thinner And Finer Hair: When your hair does grow back after waxing, it will grow back weaker, making it finer, softer and sparser. Win-win!
Minimal Irritation: Many people find hair removal methods like epilation and hair removal creams irritating to the skin. However, waxing rarely causes this problem if it’s done by a licensed professional.
How Exactly Does Bikini Waxing Stack Up Against Shaving?
Waxing vs. Shaving
Waxing provides smoother and longer lasting results by removing the hair from the root, whereas shaving cuts the hair right below the skin’s surface, causing a prickly feel days after shaving. Waxing is also healthier because it provides a physical exfoliation, removing lifeless surface cells. In other words, waxing will give you the smoothest skin – and the smoothest experience.
In order to have a successful Brazilian waxing treatment:
Your hair should be at least a ¼ inch long (about the length of a grain of rice), to allow the wax to grip around the hair. If it is your first time waxing, then we recommend you refrain from shaving for at least two weeks before your reservation. After your first wax, it is recommended to wax every three to four weeks. And avoid sun exposure on the area to be waxed 48 hours prior to treatment.
