Brazilian Wax
Everything you need to know about
Luxe Spa

Summer is here with its amazing beach days, great pool parties, and long, warm nights. Of course,
this also means it’s pampering season, so in case you were wondering about Brazilian waxing here is
all the information you need directly from the best spa in Chicago.
Waxingis one of the most popular forms of hair removal for both men and women. It is easy, quick
and give longer lasting results than shaving or depilatory creams. It works by removing the hair from
the root, therefore new hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for up to four weeks.

What does Brazilian waxing mean?

As opposed to a bikini wax, Brazilian wax traditionally means that every single hair down there has
to go. From the front of the pubic area to the labia and between the cheeks, your waxing expert will
carefully remove the hair. This hair removal method which you can only have at a professional
waxing salon is the most thorough type of female waxing. Of course, if you’d rather have your
waxing technician leave a strip of hair, just tell them to do so.

Pre-waxing preparation

If you never had a Brazilian waxing before, read carefully because there is some preparation
involved. In order to have an effective depilation and to benefit from what the best hair removal
salon in Chicago has to offer, you mustn’t shave at least three weeks before your appointment. Just
to have an idea, your pubic hair needs to be at least a quarter-inch long so that the waxing
technician can remove it easily.
You also need to be mentally prepared for your Brazilian waxing because it is going to hurt a little
bit. Some women have a higher pain threshold than others, but you can’t know yours until you’ve
tried waxing. Ask your waxing technician all the questions that you may have about the procedure
and try to stay as relaxed as possible. The more relaxed you are, the less you will feel the pain. Talk
to your esthetician to distract yourself or, if you don’t feel comfortable talking, use your phone to
get a distraction.

Types of wax

Another important thing to take into consideration is the wax beauty salons use. Soft wax refers to a
type of hot wax applied to the skin and pulled off with a piece of fabric. While this type of wax is very
used in Chicago waxing salons, it is not necessarily the best. When compared to Brazilian Hard wax,
the soft one hurts more. Stripless, hard wax, on the other hand, adheres better to the hair and can
be less painful. Hard wax does not require a strip is not sticking to your skin only to the hair.

Post-waxing care

Many people believe that, after waxing, you get a month without hassle. And while it is true that
Brazilian waxing allows you to be free of hair for almost a month, you still need to pay attention to
the area after your waxing session. Wear comfortable cotton clothes to avoid irritation for 24 hours
after waxing and try to avoid exercising. Buy yourself a special product designed to prevent the
apparition of ingrown hairs and don’t forget to exfoliate and moisturize the area. Exfoliation plays an
important role in avoiding ingrown hairs, but you should do it 24 hours after you’ve had your
Brazilian waxing so that you don’t irritate the area. Brazilian waxing is one of the best hair-removal methods. If you haven’t tried it yet, schedule an
appointment with Luxe Spa, the best hair removal salon in Chicago. Enjoy your summer and your
pool parties feeling fresh and beautiful!
