What kind of wax does La Tira Wax Studio use for the bikini area?
La Tira Wax Studio uses only hard, strip-less wax for the bikini/brazilian area. Hard wax is much more comfortable and painless, and is better for sensitive skin and those prone to ingrown hairs.
I am pregnant, can I still get waxed in my bikini area?
Yes absolutely! Whether you are in early stages of pregnancy or right at your due date, it is safe to wax during pregnancy. If you are in the first or second trimester of your pregnancy, please let your esthetician know so she can use products that do not contain any acids (glycolic, salicylic, etc.). Please also be aware that waxing during pregnancy can be more uncomfortable and painful. Taking a pregnancy-safe pain reliever one hour before waxing can help significantly. We also offer additional pillows for your comfort upon request.
I am on my period, can I still get waxed in my bikini area?
Yes absolutely! If you are on your menstrual cycle, please use a tampon when coming in for your appointment. During your period and the days leading up to your period, waxing may feel more painful. If you are very sensitive to pain, please be sure to schedule your appointment accordingly.
What reaction will I have to brazilian waxing?
Everyone reacts differently to brazilian waxing. It is common for the area to be pink, tender, and bumpy for a couple hours after your waxing appointment. For those who have sensitive skin, it can take up to 24-hours for the redness and tenderness to subside.
Will waxing make my hair grow back thicker and darker?
Contrary to popular waxing myth, hair does not grow back thicker and darker after being waxed. Waxing actually weakens hair follicles making hair grow back thinner and slower. In fact, many clients will notice that after years of consistent waxing, hair in certain areas does not grow back at all.
How long will a brazilian wax last?
Every person experiences different hair growth rate, but a brazilian wax typically lasts 3-4 weeks. You should experience 1-1.5 weeks of no growth, and 2-3 weeks of very little growth after that. Hair grows back very thin and sparse after waxing, unlike after shaving.
How often should I come in to get my bikini/brazilian wax?
For best hair removal results, we suggest regular waxing. For each person, the time in between waxes may vary. Typically, scheduling your appointment for every 4-6 weeks is best.
