Every day I have women asking me two questions when I offer them my waxing services, the famous ” brazilian wax“: 1. Does it hurt? 2. How long should I let my hair grow before I can get waxed? So I’ve decided to write this blog and answer these two questions based my 20 years of experience in brazilian waxing that I have .
1. I won’t beat around the bush ;), it can be painful for some women on their first wax. Since you don’t know what to expect, the anxiety mixed with the fear of the experience may make the nerve endings more sensitive to pain, but I’ve also had first timers say the discomfort was minimal or it was a pain free experience. In conclusion, whether the 1st time experience is uncomfortable or not depends on each individual person, that is why I go to great lengths to make each person feel completely comfortable prior to beginning the session. If you are worried about the first time we do have an optional lidocaine based numbing gel. The good news is that the more you wax, the more comfortable it gets.
2. The perfect length for me to work with is one third of a inch or between ten days to two weeks after you last shaved. Don’t worry if your hair is longer than 1/3rd of an inch, I always have my trimmer ready in case I have to trim the area to the perfect waxing length. I also offer sugaring wax at Luxe Day Spa in Tampa. Sugaring wax is a particular technique used for sensitive skin or for people prone to ingrown hairs. Sugaring doesn’t require the hair to be long, the shorter the better actually, but no less than 1/8th of an inch. Give yourself (and that special someone) the gift of smooth, bare and sexy down there with a Brazilian wax and discover the many benefits of this widely talked about beauty procedure.
