Intimate waxing is a pretty standard grooming habit for thousands of women (and men) who routinely book a session every month or so without batting an eyelid. But if you’re a waxing virgin you may be a little unsure as to what happens once you get over the basic embarrassment of showing your pants to a total stranger!
Here we tell you what to expect from your first intimate waxing appointment…
What should I expect at my first waxing treatment?
Don’t be self-conscious, remember, wax therapists have seen it all before, they carry out intimate waxes every day. There’s no need to worry about whether you’re too hairy, not hairy enough or are not wearing your best knickers.
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 women keep coming back.
How Often Will You Need Intimate Waxing?
Everyone is different, but most of our clients come in every 4-6 weeks. 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 3 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.
How Long Does An Intimate Waxing Treatment Take?
Depending on how much hair you have and which treatment you need, a waxing treatment can take anywhere from 10 minutes for a basic bikini wax to 30 minutes for a Hollywood wax.
In terms of reaction, every person’s 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 aftercare advice and products that help soothe the skin.
You may also experience some itching as the hair breaks through, but effective aftercare will alleviate any discomfort.
