During your treatment
Your wax expert is a total pro – they’ll bring everything they need to treat you.
They’ll start by putting you at ease, making sure you’re comfortable throughout, then they’ll prep your skin and apply hot wax in sections, removing it in quick, clean motions that minimise discomfort. They’ll cover the bikini area and back, leaving a neat strip of hair at the front.
The treatment is finished off with post-wax lotion, designed to soothe the skin and reduce inflammation.
Good to know
Some therapists carry a treatment table with them and they’ll need at least 2x2m of floor space to set it up. Others prefer to set up using the furniture in your home. Check your therapist's bio when booking to find a pro that matches your preferences.
Probably not the treatment for you if:
You have recent cuts, sunburn or bruising around your bikini line or an infection.
You prefer a little bit more hair left behind – check out our bikini wax option instead.
More info on Brazilian wax
Your first wax is likely to last about three weeks. But waxes do get more effective the more often you have them, and regular waxing can give results that last up to six weeks.
While a Hollywood wax removes all hair in the area, front and back, a Brazilian leaves a neat strip of hair at the front.
Right away is fine! As long as the water’s not too hot, it’ll help soothe your skin and wash away the sticky wax.
Make sure your hair’s at least a half-centimetre long (that’s at least three weeks’ growth) so the wax has something to grip. It’s also worth exfoliating to loosen any trapped hairs, just not on the day of your treatment.
Yes, this treatment is pregnancy-safe.
