Waxing Before and After care
Although we can not predict or guarantee who may react, most clients do not experience
reactions beyond redness and minor irritation. Hair may break at the root during waxing, if
hair is thin or weak, causing some hairs to grow out faster. Please follow these guidelines to
minimize irritation and possible break outs.
•Avoid the sun immediately after waxing and wear sun screen; recently waxed areas are prone
to hyperpigmentation (permanent darkening of the skin) if exposed to the sun or solarium.
•Avoid saunas, steam rooms, whirlpools and other heated sources for at least 48 hours.
•Do not have any heat treatments on the areas being waxed within 48hrs ie sunbeds, hot stone
•Avoid heavy exercise for at least 24 hours after waxing.
•Do not use exfoliating products (AHAs, scrubs, etc) and loofas for at least 24 hours after
waxing as they might further irritate your skin.
•Avoid tight clothing after waxing, especially in the waxed areas. Tight clothing may result in
irritation and ingrown hairs.
•Regular twice to three times per week exfoliation is helpful to remove dead skin so your hairs
can get out above the surface of the pores and not become ingrown.
•No hot baths, hot showers or sexual activity for 10 hours after a Brazilian. While your pores
are open, they are vulnerable to irritation by the extreme temperatures and infection by
•Moisturise with a tee tree or lavender lotion after every shower, this has a soothing healing
and antibacterial effect. If using an ingrown solution, use this alone until the redness is
minimised, then return to the lotion for maintaining your bikini area.
•Routine waxing helps the skin get accustomed to the procedure and may minimize irritation.

Q. What is a Hot Waxing?
Hot waxing is the hair removal in and around the perineum vagina and anus. Some people it
can mean the removal of all the hair from the bikini area commonly known now as a
Hollywood, and to others it might be just a strip, shape or triangle left on the front. Brazilian
Q. How long will the results last?
After a client's first waxing, the results can last 3 to 6 weeks depending on the individual's hair
re-growth rate. In most cases, hair growth is minimal during the first week or two and
noticeably increases in the third and fourth week. Heat stimulates the hair, therefore hair
grows quicker in the summer months than in the winter. With regular waxing the length of
time between treatments will increase. Continued regular waxing results in sparse hair re-
growth over time.
Q. How long does Hot bikini waxing take?
Depending on the density of the hair growth, your waxing appointment will take between 30-
50 minutes, for first timers allow 50 minutes. A little painful, yes, but with swift strong hands
and an efficient therapist by your side, it will be over very quickly, the results are well worth it.
Many clients say the top part of their genitalis is the most painful, the underneath and around
the anus is one of the least painful part for both men and women.

comfort and consult with you to find out how bare you want to go, and I will work within
those guidelines. Not everyone goes "all the way" the first time.
