When you make your appointment, we will discuss what areas you would like treated. The hair should be grown out at least three weeks after a shave, and it needs to be at least an inch long but no longer than 1.5 inches or you will need to trim it at home before your appointment.
Upon arrival for your appointment, you will be shown to a private room to remove your clothing. Your esthetician will knock before entering the room. You can then discuss the process and exactly how much hair you would like removed. Soft wax is used in addition to a fabric called “pellon” which then sticks to the wax and hair removing an 1.5 inch wide by 4 inch strip of hair. Pressure is applied after each strip to dissipate the tingling as this is just the blood flow to the skin. This process is repeated until you are hair-free. With Brazilian waxing, you have the option to wax the anal area as well, which is done by lying flat on your stomach, using the same technique.
Men’s hair is often thicker and coarser than women’s, and the initial hair removal session can sting, but overall, waxing is not as painful as expected. The momentary sensation when the esthetician removes the wax strip is the worst of it. After your treatment, we apply coconut oil, which is anti-inflammatory, and will leave you with instructions for aftercare to avoid the skin irritation that sometimes occurs.
Subsequent removal within a 4-6 week time period is much easier, and the hair becomes softer, less coarse, and easier to remove over time with repeated waxing.
