For many women looking for effective hair removal in their bikini line and other hard-to-reach areas, the Brazilian wax is one of your top options available. If this is your first time obtaining such a wax, what kinds of basic preparations and themes should you be thinking about leading up to your appointment?

At His & Hers Waxing, we’re proud to offer the best Brazilian wax services in SLC and surrounding areas, including to clients looking into this program for the first time. What are some of the main areas we recommend when it comes to preparing for your first Brazilian, and what should you be thinking about through this entire process? This two-part blog series will cover all these areas and more.

Benefits of Brazilian Wax

Before we move further, those who have never had a Brazilian wax may be wondering what all the fuss is about in the first place. In short, Brazilian waxing provides a level of smoothness and hairlessness that other hair removal options simply can’t match. This is ideal for anyone who wears fitted clothing, swimsuits or anything else where they want to avoid any hair “stubble” poking out.

Here are some of the distinct benefits of this service:

  • Skin health: One of the main benefits of Brazilian waxes is that it helps improve your skin health. When you shave, you’re essentially taking a sharp object and scraping away at the top layer of your skin. This can cause irritation, redness and other side effects. With waxing, however, the hair is pulled out from the root, which helps to reduce the risk of any skin damage.
  • Less frequent hair removal: Many women find that they don’t need to shave or wax as often when they opt for a Brazilian wax. This is because the hair is being removed from the root, rather than just being trimmed at the surface.
  • Smoother skin: As we just mentioned, shaving can cause irritation, redness and other side effects. With waxing, however, you’re left with smooth skin that’s free of any razor bumps or other issues.

Pre-Brazilian Prep

One of the best parts of the Brazilian procedure is that it requires very little significant preparation. You don’t need to avoid eating or any other drastic measures. However, there are a few key tips we recommend following to ensure the best possible experience:

  • Schedule your appointment for the right time of month: Many women find that their skin is more sensitive during certain parts of their menstrual cycle. If you know when these times are, we recommend avoiding scheduling your waxing appointment during this week.
  • Prepare for disrobing: At the start of your appointment, you’ll be asked to disrobe so that our esthetician can access the treatment areas. We recommend wearing loose-fitting clothing to your appointment so that you’re comfortable during this process.
  • Trim before you come in: If you have longer hair, we recommend trimming it down to a few inches before your appointment.
