Your Top Brazilian Wax Questions


Brazilian Wax

As summer rapidly approaches, I’m sure we’re all thinking about the 3 B words –  Bikinis, Beaches, and Bottomless Mimosas! 

But are you thinking about Brazilians? Getting a Brazilian Wax for the first time, or even if you’re an infrequent waxer looking to get back to your smoothest self – can be intimidating. Do you want to start taking care of yourself down there but don’t know where to start? 

You might have a million questions racing through your mind before your first Brazilian Wax. 

Like – Does Brazilian Waxing hurt? How often should you get a Brazilian? Should I trim before my Brazilian Wax? What am I supposed to do after I wax my vag? Can I get a Brazilian Wax while pregnant? 

The good news is – we’ve got you covered. We are going to answer all of your questions about Brazilian Waxing. From the first-time Brazilian Waxer to the seasoned Brazilian Babe looking to get back in the game we have all of the answers that you’re looking for about Brazilian Waxing. So, sit back and enjoy the ride. 

Does Brazilian Waxing hurt?

Yes – frankly we are pulling your hair out. We won’t lie to you. But, sugaring hurts WAY less than traditional waxing. 

At our Salmon Arm Spa location, we use Sugar Wax (a paste made up of three ingredients – sugar, water, and lemon) for the sensitive areas of your body (like your nether regions). 

Why does Sugaring hurt less during a Brazilian Wax? Sugar doesn’t attach to your skin, so you’ll feel much less irritated after the service, less red, and honestly feels like nothing even happened! You’re just smooth, soft, and ready for the beach! 

Can I get a Brazilian Wax while on my period? 

Look, we’re women too, and last time I checked, we don’t stop what we’re doing because we got our period. We could care less. Just put in a tampon, let us know when you arrive, and it’s no big deal! 

Will my Brazilian hurt more when I have my period? 

Yes and no. I find it hurts me more the week before my period. You know, that week you’re especially mean to your spouse or pretty much anyone who dares to come near you? 

What I try to do is get my Brazilian Waxing clients on a schedule that works around their cycle and work around the week that they’re most sensitive. I personally find that once my period has arrived, my Brazilian hurts no more or less than usual. 

How Long Does A  Brazilian Wax Take? 

I do Brazilian Waxing in less than 30 minutes. Usually, 15-20 Minutes is all I need. There’s no reason for your Brazilian Wax to take more than 30 minutes. 

How Long Does My Hair Need to be for a Brazilian Wax? 

We base our timing for length and the time to rebook your Brazilian Wax around the 4 Main Stages of Hair Growth. Ideally you’ll want your hair to be as long as four days post-shave or 4 weeks post-wax or sugar. 

Do you hate looking at my vagina? It’s my first time getting a Brazilian Wax and I’m a little nervous. 

No. I promise you. I LOVE doing Brazilians. I know it sounds weird. But, I could care less that I’m looking at your va jay jay. I think women’s bodies are beautiful and magical. 

Helping Women feel sexy, confident, and comfortable in their skin makes me happy. 

When you arrive, we give you a little wipe in case you need a refresh. After that, you get changed, climb up on the massage table and we give you a towel for privacy. Usually, after you get settled I’ll chat your ear off about anything and everything to try to distract you from the entire service. 

What if it’s been several months and looks like the Amazon forest down there?

AKA Should I trim before a Brazilian Wax? 

I recommend giving yourself a little trim before you come in. Also, let us know when you book your appointment that you’ve been rocking it 70’s style, so that I can take an extra 5-10 minutes and do smaller sections for you. Then we’ll rebook you to come in and see us in 4 weeks, so that the foliage in the forest isn’t as thick. 

Can I get Brazilian Wax while pregnant?

Yes absolutely! I sugar my Brazilian Mamas to be right up to their due date. We just make it work the bigger your belly gets, but it is perfectly safe for both you and the little one. 

Have questions about what to do after your first Brazilian Wax? Our experienced estheticians talk to each of our clients through the aftercare process including specialized product recommendations to address all of your needs for self-care down there. 

Why should you come and see us at Lake Life Day Spa for your Brazilian Wax?
