A Brazilian wax is removing the hair from the labia and backside area. Some choose to go completely hairless; some choose to leave a hair little behind like a "landing strip" or a "small upside down triangle". Brazilian waxes differ from regular bikini waxes because hair is removed from the front, back, and everything in between.
The pain is minimal; most women find it very tolerable. The speed and technique will minimize the pain because the service is completed in ten minutes.
Prior to your appointment please wait for 3 to 4 weeks of hair growth to return; hair that is too short will increase the pain. Please refrain from any trimming or cutting hair for optimum results. Remember it takes time to grow out each of the 3 hair cycles. On the day of your appointment avoid caffeine up to 5 hours before getting waxed. This will help reduce sensitivity. Taking ibuprofen 30 minutes before will help in reducing sensitivity and inflammation.
Waxing works better in series. If you have been shaving there will be a transition period. It generally requires 4 to 5 visits to achieve hairlessness for 3 to 4 weeks, as well as softer hair and less hair growing back. If you haven't been shaving these results may be obtained quicker.
No shaving in between appointments. Shaving slows down and reduces growth; Uninterrupted growth makes it easier to remove and less painful when waxing. Shaving just once in between appointments will negate all that is gained from waxing. Shaving can further irritate follicles that can cause ingrown hairs.
The skin might be tender for 24 to 48 hrs. One ibuprofen is recommend to decrease inflammation and sensitivity.

Exfoliate: This will help obtain the maximum results of waxing and prevent in-grown hairs.
Use a natural bristle body brush with a hypoallergenic soap: Scrub in a small circular motion over the waxed area. This will help loosen any dirt, and cellular build-up that could cause the folical to clog.
On clean dry skin apply PFB Vanish, an after wax serum specifially formulated to prevent ingrown hair, and keep the folical clean. This allows the finer, softer hair to reach the skins surface blemish free and is part of achieving 3 to 4 weeks of no hair regrowth.
