Brazilian Wax Prep & Aftercare

Make your experience as comfortable as possible with these before and after waxing tips.

Before Your Appointment

  • Make sure that you have at least 14 days of regrowth at the time of your appointment.

  • Exfoliate 24 hours before using the dry brush technique before showering.

  • Avoid alcohol for 24 hours before your wax.

  • Avoid caffeine immediately before your wax.

  • If you have sensitive skin, take an antihistamine (like Claritin) to help prevent an allergic reaction. 

  • Schedule your spray tan for 48 hours after waxing to ensure even color.

After Waxing

  • You can feel free to shower same day, using a fragrance free product.

  • Use a product like Finipil Pro to help calm skin, close pores, and help prevent ingrown hairs.

  • Dry Exfoliate every 2-3 days before showering to help keep skin smooth.

  • Avoid hot tubs, chlorinated water or ocean water for 24 hours.

  • Do not work out immediately after waxing- pores are open and bacteria can cause a reaction.

  • Avoid tanning for 24 hours (if natural tanning, could result in a burn, and spray tanning too soon will result in darker area where you have been waxed).

Dry Brushing

You can purchase a dry brush either at the shop or online.  Your brush should be a medium firmness to give you sufficient exfoliation.  Before you shower simply use small circular motions to exfoliate the area and then shower as normal.  Dry brushing can be done all over the body and has many benefits other than just giving you the best exfoliation possible!
