Waxing is just one of the many hair removal options, but it is one of the most popular. With a trained professional, warm wax, and cloth strips, hair can be removed from just about any part of the human body. A favorite among our wax center visitors is the Brazilian bikini wax. It was introduced nearly 30 years ago in New York, by seven Brazilian-born sisters. It differs from a regular bikini wax in that all of the hair is removed. Read on to learn more about what to expect during a Brazilian wax at a med spa.

First of all, you will need enough hair in the area to get a good Brazilian wax at a med spa. Fine hair should be about one-quarter of an inch long, while course hair needs to be half of an inch. If it’s too short, the wax can’t properly grab on to it. Alternatively, if your hair is too long, you may trim it before your appointment, or your technician may do it for you.

Skin Med Spa’s Brazilian wax Santa Monica procedure will take place in a private room. Once you arrive at the spa, you will be shown to your room where you will be asked to remove your clothing from the waist down. A paper thong may be provided, but if not, and you want one, don’t hesitate to ask.

During the waxing process, you will lay on a sterile table while the hair is removed. Quite often, the waxer will apply talcum powder to your skin. This works to keep wax from sticking to the skin. Then, the med spa staff member will apply the wax in the direction of hair growth, using a wooden waxing stick. The process typically begins in the front, moving to the back. After that, a cloth strip will be placed over the warm wax and pressed firmly. The hair and wax stick to each other. As the wax cools, the strip will be pulled off, pulling hairs out, root and all. Once a majority of the hair has been removed, the waxing professional will remove any stray hairs by tweezing. To finish, a soothing lotion may be spread over the area that was just waxed.

The waxing process can be painful, but there are a few things you can do to cut down on the pain. One thing you can do is get a Brazilian wax at a med spa every few weeks. The more you get waxed, the less pain it will cause. Another option is to apply a numbing cream to the area an hour or so before your appointment. You can also try to take acetaminophen or ibuprofen to ward off pain.

Getting a Brazilian wax at a med spa is a great choice for removing hair. When you choose this option, you can be hair-free for a several weeks at a time. If you are looking for a Brazilian wax, or waxing of any other area, don’t hesitate to contact your local med spa.
