Things to know before a Bikini Wax | Clearfield | The Spa and Lash Studio
Thinking of having a bikini waxing to get rid of your unwanted pubic hair, here are important things you need to know:
Your bikini hair should be ¼ inches long or thereabout
When preparing for your bikini waxing, do not shave your pubic hair as this will make it difficult for the wax to pick the unwanted hair. To be on the safe side, you can leave your hair as it is and inform your aesthetician that you will need some trimming before the waxing process begins.
Do not book your waxing appointment when on your period or a few days to your period
During this time of your menstrual cycle, your body is very sensitive and the waxing hair removal at this time will be very painful. You should schedule your appointment for a day when your body will be less sensitive as the process will be more bearable.
Know the type of bikini waxing you want before confirming your appointment
To help you with this, here are the different types of bikini waxing you can choose from:
With all these options, you’ll definitely get one that will work best for you.
Shower before your appointment
When you are clean, you will be able to relax knowing that there are not bad odors coming from your bikini area. A warm shower will also help in opening your pores which will make the waxing process less painful.
You will expose your bikini area to the aesthetician
To enable the aesthetician to have a clear view of your bikini area, you will be required to remove your underwear. If you will not be having a full bikini waxing, the esthetician may issue disposable underpants to cover the parts that will not get waxed.
You should not worry about exposing your sensitive body parts to the aesthetician as this will be purely professional. He has carried out multiple Brazilian waxing procedures and will not find it strange that you will be exposing your body to him.
You will feel some pain
There are people who will lie to you that the process is painless but this is not true. You will feel some pain but to make it less, you can take some pain relievers before the treatment. Alternatively, you can apply numbing cream on the part that will get waxed to make it less painful.
If you will be having a bikini waxing for the first time, the process will be more painful as your hair is harder and denser.
Your experience will not be the same with anyone else
Your body is different from your friends and this means your experience will be unique. If the pain was too much for them, you may get shocked to discover that you will not feel as much pain.
If your hair is stubborn, you may feel more pain when the aesthetician is working on your bikini area.
If any hair remains after your bikini waxing, the waxer will tweeze it
At times, the esthetician may be unable to remove all the hair in your bikini area. In this case, he will use tweezers to remove the unwanted hair. He will inform you before he begins the process so that you can get ready for it.
After the waxing hair removal, your skin will be very sensitive due to the intense pulling. Some people may feel a lot of irritation and the skin around the bikini area may turn red. This is temporal and will disappear in a day or two.
To ease the irritation, you can apply a cream such as Hydrocortisone which will soothe your skin. It will also reduce the reddening on your skin and get rid of any itchy feeling.
Give your skin some time to recover
After the waxing hair removal process, you need to give your bikini area some time to recover before you wear a bikini. Wearing loosely fitting clothes will really help to give your body the time and space it needs to recover. In a few days, you will be ready to rock that bikini body at the beach!
