Getting a Brazilian Wax - What You Need To Know

by Marcos Nacach on January 06, 2022

Waxing is one of the most popular methods of hair removal in the United States. It’s not just for women, Brazilian waxing for men is also popular. A bikini wax removes the hair along your bikini line, while Brazilian waxing, which became popular in the United States in the late 1980s, goes a step, or steps, further. For those who may be unfamiliar, A Brazilian wax removes all (or most) of your pubic hair.  For those who prefer a completely smooth and hairless look, this service has proven to be in high demand.

What You Need To Know About Getting a Brazilian Wax

If you are interested in an all-over smooth look, you may want to consider a Brazilian wax.  However, there are some things you should know.

First, let’s look at the benefits.  Waxing, in general, results in extremely smooth skin, particularly when compared to shaving.  And, it’s long-lasting. Because the process removes hair from the root (rather than skin level), the results can last up to a month. The added bonus is that when you wax regularly, the regrowth tends to be softer, making future waxing sessions easier to tolerate.

On the other hand, Brazilian waxing can be painful. Think about how sensitive the area being addressed is.  It is no surprise that the process can be less than pleasant. 

Preparing For Your Brazilian Wax

First and foremost, you want to work with an aesthetician who is experienced and has an excellent reputation. If your provider works in a salon or spa, visit before your appointment. Make sure everything looks clean and that appropriate health and sanitary precautions are taken. Personal recommendations are a great way to find a good person.

Also, talk to the aesthetician about the products used.  High-quality, reputable products are the best. You can research them online to ensure they are the right fit for you.

Brazilian waxing, like all waxing, is best if done on healthy skin. If you have a sunburn or any other irritation, it is best to postpone your waxing session.  Also, if you are on certain medications you may want to think twice about a Brazilian wax; you can talk to your doctor for more information.

Finally, there are some things you can do to prepare at home. Consider exfoliating the area to be waxed prior to the treatment.  This can help to prevent painful, ingrown hairs.  Also, trimming your pubic hair prior to your appointment can be helpful.  Make sure to wear loose-fitting, light clothes to your appointment - you will be much more comfortable on the way home. Finally, taking over-the-counter pain medication before waxing (about half an hour) can help lessen the pain both during and after the process.

Once at home you can apply a cool cloth to the area to help alleviate the pain.  And wash the area gently. In general, in the days immediately following a Brazilian wax, baths are better than showers.

A Brazilian Wax is Essential 

For many, Brazilian waxing is a must. The process, like all waxing, gets easier over time.  The combination of lighter hair and knowing what to expect can really make a difference.  If you are considering a Brazilian wax, do your research carefully, the combination of a skilled and reputable aesthetician and the best waxing products can make all the difference in the world.
