A Beginners guide To Intimate Waxing
Waxing is one of our most popular treatments in the salon and during any one month we will perform a lot of intimate waxes for ladies and gentlemen looking to shape or groom their lady gardens or lawns.
Intimate waxing involves hair removal from the pubic region, If you've never had it done before, you may well have some questions, so here is our beginners guide.
What should I expect at my first waxing treatment?
Firstly, we use quality wax from outback organics, which has been developed by top waxing specialists who are always looking at ways to improve the wax itself. our therapists have intense intimate waxing training and will explain the procedure up-front, talking you through every step along the way.
In terms of reaction, every ones skin behaves differently to intimate waxing. you may end up with some irritation or redness as the skin can be distressed after the first couple of waxing treatments, but we offer after care advice and apply products that help soothe the skin.
You may also experience some itching as the hair breaks through, but effective aftercare will alleviate any discomfort.
How old do you have to be to have intimate waxing
Salons may differ, but we say eighteen years old. you can have it done at sixteen, but we would need parental consent and that person in the salon at the same time as your wax as you are technically a minor.
Does intimate waxing hurt?
Pain thresholds are different for each person but our therapists are trained in techniques that offer minimum discomfort when performing intimate waxing treatments. If you are new to waxing there may be an element of shock, but it gets easier with every treatment as the hair thins. After all many men and women keep coming back :-)
How often will you need intimate waxing?
Everyone is different, but 95% of our clients come in every 4-6wks. Regular waxing sessions ensure that your hair grows back finer and thinner as the hair follicle has less grip on the hair.
Can I shave in between sessions?
You can shave but this will knock out your waxing cycle because you will need at least 4 weeks growth for an intimate wax.
How long should the hair be?
The hair needs to have a certain length (5-10mm) to be waxed and for your first few sessions the longer the hair, the easier the wax.
What if I have coarse hair?
If you have coarse hair, the hair should be grown longer (around 10mm) for the first few intimate waxes but the hair will become finer over time.
What is the difference Between Warm wax and Hot wax?
The warm wax technique involves spreading wax onto the relevant areas a small section at a time. A waxing strip is pressed down onto the wax, Which is then pulled off removing the hair from the root.
Working at a slightly higher temperature, hot wax is thicker wax applied to the skin, then allowed to cool and contract. it is then peeled from the skin without any strip removing unwanted hairs.
Hot waxing tends to be better for shorter, more stubborn hairs making it more comfortable for intimate waxing.
Why get waxed?
Men and women from all professions and of all ages get waxed... more than you would ever dream of. The reasons range from it being cleaner, to it improving their love life as it heightens sensitivity.
What to wear?
If your having intimate waxing done., you will need to ideally be naked from the waist down to get a perfect wax, so you need to leave your modesty at the door.
"The Erection Section"
I very often get asked, "what happens if i get an erection?"
The answer is always,"we just carry on"
Erections are common during an intimate waxing treatment and the waxing service will continue as long as your behaviour is not inappropriate. I am here to carry out an exceptionally professional and high quality service, nothing more, nothing less."Please note i will report any incidences to the police"
For 24 hrs after you've been waxed, Avoid sun, deodorant, really hot showers/baths, swimming, gym/exercise, solariums, spas and saunas as these will irritate the skin. Use a dry body brush to exfoliate after two days, then two or three times a week after, but don't go mad as this actually causes ingrown hairs if your too rough. Dry brushing is when take one of those wooden and bristle brushes that you can buy from boots, superdrug etc. As you're about to step into the bath or shower and when your skin is dry and the brush is dry, you gently but firmly brush all over the area you get waxed. in fact it's great to do your whole body. Then when you step out of the bath/shower and your skin is dripping wet, apply a small amount of baby oil all over the waxed area. then dry yourself with a towel. You won't feel all greasy if you do it this way,you should moisturize everyday so the hairs can break through the skin easier. Even after all that aftercare some people are just prone to them but prevention is better than cure.
