Brazilian Waxing Frequently Asked Questions

When it comes to Brazilian waxing in Ottawa everyone has questions, even men. This is rightfully so because for the longest time it was considered a secretive act. Today though, it is more acceptable to talk about one’s body and how they care for it. Here are the answers to some of the most common waxing in Ottawa questions.

How Long Before My Hair Starts To Grow Back?

Like many of the questions here the answer to this one depends on who you are. For the most part a Brazilian wax in Ottawa will last you from four to six weeks. Your hair will then start to grow back; however, it should grow back both softer and less thick.

What is The Brazilian Waxing Process?

When you arrive at a facility you are given a piece of cloth or paper to wear that is similar to a thong. Then they apply the wax and remove the hair from the top of your bikini line and move all the way to the top of your buttocks.

How Much Will It Hurt?

This is a question that gets asked by almost every new client and it is also another question that is answered with: it depends. For most people the process of
waxing will just feel like a minor pain. For people with low pain tolerance they find it extremely painful. You can reduce the pain if you have a topical numbing agent; some professionals provide it at their appointments. Taking deep breaths every time they pull your hair out will help to stop the process from hurting as much.

Can I Still Get Ingrown Hairs?

Yes, the process of waxing does not prevent ingrown hairs. To help prevent ingrown hairs, exfoliate your skin. You should wait until 48 hours after your appointment though so you don’t aggravate the skin. You can also get lotions that are meant to calm the skin.

Can I Do It At Home?

Yes, you can give yourself a Brazilian wax at home but most professionals wouldn’t recommend it. The kits for performing at home waxing do not have high quality supplies in them. You are also more likely to hurt yourself because you do not know what you are doing and it is harder to navigate your own body.

Are There Alternatives To Waxing?

Yes, as you probably know you can shave, trim, or any number of other procedures at home. But you can also go
through sugaring in Ottawa . Sugaring is similar to waxing but sugar mixes are used to remove the hair in much more comfortable way then wax.

Do not be afraid to go get a Brazilian wax in Ottawa. Many people go regularly to get these treatments because it makes it easier to manage their hair. It also takes longer for hair to grow back after a waxing session than it would if you were to shave. The only way to know if the process is right for you is to try it.
