3-4 weeks of growth is recommended for optimal results. On average this is 1/4 inch of growth.
Since the hair is removed from the root there is some discomfort, but everyone says that it wasn’t as painful as they expected after their first wax with Joni. It is quite tolerable and well worth it for most people. A monthly waxing schedule also helps reduce any pain.
Joni is a waxing specialist and this is her most popular service. Your Brazilian bikini wax service rids you of all the hair in your entire pubic region and the strip of hair in back between your cheeks. Some women prefer to leave a decorative patch of hair at the top. It’s a personal preference that is equally popular and up to you. The Brazilian bikini wax provides a clean, smooth wax and the freedom to wear the most revealing swim wear.
Some skin types and hair textures are simply prone to ingrown hairs. Waxing will often reduce the amount of ingrowns. Excellent products are available to help prevent and reduce ingrown hairs. Just ask and Joni will recommend one for you.
Waxing must be avoided if you are using any medications that contribute to skin sensitivity, especially, Retin-A, Renova, Differin, Accutane, Cumadin and Warfarin. Sunburned or recently peeling skin cannot be waxed either. Additional contraindications include cancer treatments, active herpes simplex, warts, open lesions and inflamed or irritated skin .Having your period does not prevent you from waxing, but you may be more sensitive around this time.
Recently waxed skin is more susceptible to sun burn and hyperpigmentation (brown spots) so please apply a quality SPF and avoid exposing the waxed areas to direct sun and tanning beds.
