Unlike shaving, which removes hair just above the skin surface, Brazilian Waxing by Celeste strips it down to the root. This method can leave you with smooth skin for weeks, or even longer depending on your individual hair growth pattern.
This type of waxing typically takes place in a private area of the salon, where you’ll remove your underwear and lie on a table. Some estheticians will recommend taking an over-the-counter pain reliever like ibuprofen before your appointment to help minimize discomfort. It’s also a good idea to trim your pubic hair down to one-quarter to three-quarters of an inch beforehand, and gently exfoliate the area to prevent ingrown hairs.
Exploring Different Brazilian Waxing Styles and Shapes
It’s important to note that getting a full Brazilian wax the first time can be uncomfortable, but it should get significantly less painful after your second or third wax. That’s because your hair will grow back in a shorter and finer cycle after waxing, and it will become more accustomed to being stripped from the sensitive area.
The process is similar to other waxing techniques, and it may be done with hot or cold wax. Your esthetician will apply a thin layer of the wax to the area where you want hair removed, then press a strip of special waxing paper over it. It’s important to keep in mind that this can be a little embarrassing if you’re new to it, but most estheticians are well-versed in the intricacies of getting your hair removed down there, and they’ll do everything they can to make you comfortable.
