4 Reasons Your First Wax Shouldn’t Scare You

(Because with Depil Brazil's Wax Pros, it's not nearly as uncomfortable as you'd imagine!)

Having healthy, glowing, soft skin is at the top of everyone’s wish list. The problem is, those tired at-home wax kits, and shower razors are doing nothing to help you achieve that perfect, smooth, stubble-free skin that you desire. The key to beautiful skin is having a professional wax for optimal results and efficient hair removal.

While the very idea of waxing “down there” or anywhere, for that matter, can be frightening, the reality is, that body waxing is safe, convenient, and not nearly as uncomfortable as you’ve been led to believe. Just thinking about your first waxing experience can be nerve-wracking. You’ve heard the stories and you’re just not sure what to expect or what you should do before you bare it all on the waxing table.

The good news is that you have a team of dedicated waxfessionals who are ready to have you feeling the silky smooth. Because there’s a first time for everything and being a waxing virgin can be terrifying, we’re sharing the NOT so scary truths about body waxing.

You’ll have time to prep

Something that you may not be aware of, is that the steps you take to prepare for your wax service are just as important as post-care to ensure great results and an enjoyable experience all around. Before you get waxed, make sure your hair is long enough. You want to be sure there is enough hair so that the wax can adhere and remove fully from the root. There’s no need to trim it if you think your hair is too long, your wax pro will trim it if needed.

You’ll also need to properly clean and exfoliate beforehand. Dry skin or skin that feels too oily and flaky can make it easier for the hair follicle to break when it is being removed. To get the best results, you need to make sure your hair is clean and exfoliated. Exfoliating the area removes dead skin cells, and lifts dirt, oil, and other debris that can get in the way of your smooth and long-lasting results.

Grumari Body Exfoliant is a good scrub product to keep in rotation. The body polish is made with natural ingredients that remove flaky, dry skin cells and enhance circulation, revealing soft, smooth, and radiant skin. As a rule, you should exfoliate 24 to 48 hours prior to getting waxed and again 24 to 48 hours after.

Proper after-care keeps you feeling smooth and protected

Waxing any area of the body is a game-changing experience, but bad after-care will leave you in more discomfort than the wax itself ever could! After your wax at Depil Brazil, your wax pro will provide you with instructions and recommendations on the best post-care to keep your skin happy, and your wax long-lasting. It’s best to be proactive against any potential side effects from waxing.

Similarly to the pre-care, we recommend using an exfoliant to gently scrub the areas and then apply lotion or moisturizer after your shower. This will help you avoid bumps, redness, or ingrown hairs. Because the skin will be raw and sensitive, you must be careful not to cause further irritation by scratching. Try to help soothe the area by using our Ipanema Ingrown Hair Serum to help soothe irritation, improve skin tone, and soften the skin between waxes.

If you’re a first-time or occasional waxer you will likely notice some new hair growth within 2-3 weeks due to the naturally staggered hair growth cycle. Soon after, the remaining hair will begin growing in. However, when you make waxing a part of a consistent routine, the areas will remain hair-free for 3 – 6 weeks. Over time, the density of hair in the waxed area may start to decrease as well.  The best thing you can do to make sure your wax is as painless as possible is to do it regularly. Set up a standing appointment and stick to it, and you’ll be much happier with the results.

Your wax pros are highly skilled and knowledgeable

Every wax professional at Depil Brazil is licensed and trained with the same techniques and expectations of quality. We are proud to say that our clients experience the same level of professionalism and satisfaction with every team member, and most of our clients end up booking at any one of our growing studio locations solely based on convenience.

You’ll be directed to a private wax room where you can ask your wax pro any last-minute questions or share any concerns about the process. When you are ready, you will be given privacy to remove everything around the desired wax area and lie on a clean table area with clean paper or sheets.  Although the thought of being totally exposed in front of a stranger may make you blush, much like your gynecologist, our wax pros have seen it all before.

Our wax pros will also provide a complimentary skin consultation to best treat and prevent any skin issues that are common on the face and body, so you can trust that you are in the absolute best care at Depil Brazil.

It’s not nearly as uncomfortable as you’ve been told

Let’s just get the embarrassing truth out there first, if you’re getting your wax for the first time, yes, you may experience some discomfort. Man or woman, there’s absolutely no shame in disclosing your discomfort tolerance level to your waxing professional. Although everyone’s threshold for discomfort is different, you may experience slight discomfort during your first waxing experience. Some feel slight discomfort, some feel none.

During the wax session the wax is applied directly to the skin and pulled with force removing the hair from the follicle, this process triggers your nerve endings and causes the instant shock of discomfort. The good news is that the discomfort subsides in a matter of seconds and the process gets much better with consistent treatments.

If you want to avoid the feeling of discomfort altogether, we recommend that you stop by your local Depil Brazil or visit our website for a gentle, natural skin exfoliant. Exfoliating the areas to be waxed prior to your scheduled appointment will make your first visit much easier and our products are formulated to work in tandem with our wax, so you can be confident that you are treating your skin to the absolute best all-around.
