It can be a stressful time when you are going for your first Brazilian waxing or bikini waxing appointment. Even those who have had waxes before or are going to a new waxing spa for the first time can get nervous before the treatment. To help quell your anxieties we have provided a demonstration on wax application and removal.
Waxing is For Men & Women
Bikini and Brazilian waxing is one of the most popular procedures for both women and men. At Theresa’s face and Body waxing spa in Cape Coral our hard and soft waxes are very gentle to the skin and contain soothing ingredients such as aloe, lavender and azulene. These are formulated to remove all types of hair quickly and effectively from even the most sensitive skin types.
Your waxing session will begin with a thorough cleansing of the area to be waxed. We will then apply a tiny amount of oil to protect the skin. Next, the skin is held taught as we apply the wax in the direction of the hair growth. For each application, a new stick is used to apply the wax to ensure there is no double dipping. When the wax is applied, it may feel slightly warm on the skin but it cools quickly. The next step is removing the hair. The paper strip is applied to the intimate area and is pulled off in the opposite direction to remove the hair.
After your service, we use a gentle wax cleanser to remove the residue and apply a gel with ingredients including, vitamin E and calendula to soothe inflammation and calm the skin.
It is recommended to stay out of hot or salt water and not go into a pool for 24 hours after your Brazilian waxing treatment. You should also avoid soap and avoid rubbing the waxed are not rub the treated skin. It is also advised to not work out, and to apply ice or aloe to the area to reduce redness and inflammation.
Avoid The Sun
Also, avoid the sun 24 hours after a wax. After this time period, you can enjoy the sun just make sure to wear a sunscreen with at least a 40 SPF to keep the area protected. Make sure to reapply sun screen every two hours to avoid sunburn.
