Please, no caffeine before your wax…especially for Brazilians as it enhances your pain receptors. Take an Ibuprofen or Advil 30-45 minutes before your appointment if you are worried about pain.
The sensation of pain during waxing only lasts a couple of seconds and then immediately goes away. We are confident that you can make it through and your esthetician will be there to support you through the entire process.
Remember, the first time you are waxed will be the hardest but it DOES get easier. Everyone is different but the more you wax, eventually it becomes virtually painless. The first time a client comes in, typically, they are nervous, which causes tension, resulting in more intense emotions…even that of pain. There are several common reactions, like uncontrollable laughter, tears, even “Brazilian Tourette’s Syndrome”, as Paula likes to call it. But after the first visit is over, this uncomfortable feeling should lessen. You’ll see that we are on your side. Our staff does everything we can to help calm your nerves and walk you through the entire process.
