questions and concerns
After-Wax care list
Q: Does a Brazilian wax hurt?
A: There is a level of discomfort during a Brazilian, especially if it’s your first time. But not to fear, we do everything in our power to make your experience more comfortable including super sensitive waxes and excellent, highly-trained, wax expert. You can always take Advil or Ibuprofen up to 800mg prior to your scheduled wax. Keep in mind, ibuprofen results in some bruising.
Q: What if I get my period before my appointment?
A: It’s always best to avoid scheduling your Brazilian waxes for while you are menstruating due to the sensitivity during the appointment, but if you absolutely need a wax now, we will be happy to accommodate you. Make sure to wear a tampon.
PRE-WAX CARE LIST
Don’t sunbathe for 24 hours before or after your. treatment. (Tanning after your treatment can cause irritation and even burns.)
Hair should be at least 1/4-1/2 inch long. Longer the hair, better the results.
Q: Should I shower right before my appointment?
A: It’s always nice to feel clean when you come in for an appointment, but we offer individual wipes with every bikini, French and Brazilian wax so you don’t have to obsess over it.
Q: Is there anything I should NOT do before your appointment?
A: We recommend you not drink caffeine making you sensitive, smoke cigarettes, and drink alcohol before your wax, causing your pores to shrink- all resulting in discomfort.
Q: Is there anything I should tell my wax expert?
A:Because we care about your health and the integrity of your skin, The Waxing Boutique will not perform waxing treatments if you are currently using Retina-A, Differin, or Accutane, unless you sign our consent form.
Q: Is there anything I can do to prepare for a brazilian/bikini wax?
A: Make sure your hair is at least a 1/2 of an inch long. If you normally shave, stop at about 3 weeks before coming in for a wax-the longer the better. Also, it is important to exfoliate the area prior to wax, making your wax easier.
