As beauty therapists we do a lot of XXX waxing on women, in fact it’s in our top 10 services, so it’s fair to say we are quite the experts in it with over 30 years combined experience in doing this service. We find clients for their first time have a lot of questions to ask in regards to this particular waxing and here I will endeavor to clear up any misconceptions.
What is a Brazilian wax? Is it the same as a XXX?
In our salon yes it is the same thing, it simply means a full bikini wax, taking the whole lot, all of it, front and back. Gone! Ouch!! We also do a XX which we interpret as leaving a small strip on top at the pubic bone but taking everything else. It always pays to discuss with your therapist what your expectation is of your waxing and what you would like to keep and what you’d like gone.
What do I wear?
It is more comfortable to wear a G-string, one of your own or we do supply disposable ones if you prefer.
What does the treatment involve?
We leave you in the room alone to begin with to get yourself ready for the waxing, we supply you with a personal wipe and disposable underwear to place on and a modesty towel to place over you. You lay on your back as if you were to receive a regular bikini wax and you are placed in the least confrontational position.
Does it hurt?
Waxing will always incur some pain, after all we are ripping hair out of the follicle of your private areas but it does get easier after the first time and if you keep up with regular 3 to 4 weekly appointments, this way the hair may become more sparse and easier to come out.
Can I have it done if I’m pregnant?
If you have been waxing before your pregnancy and if it is OK with your doctor then there is no reason why you can’t continue. Just be aware that being pregnant will leave you more sensitive during your wax.
Can I have it done if I have my period?
This is up to you, but please arrive for your appointment squeaky clean and with a fresh tampon in. Just also be aware that waxing at this time may be more painful.
How often should I get it done?
Most of our clients find having a wax about every 4 weeks is the perfect timing for the hair to again be at a length that is perfect for waxing. Of course this depends on each individual.
Do we do male XXX waxing?
Unfortunately we don’t, at the moment we just do females only.
Can I bring my partner or friend with me?
To be honest we prefer if you don’t, it can be quite distracting for the esthetician and yourself, we also find a friend can make an already nervous first timer even more nervous.
