Everything You Need to Know About Body Waxing

Hey everyone! Whether you're a waxing newbie or a seasoned pro, understanding how body waxing works can make your experience smoother and more enjoyable. At BARE Body Waxing Studio, we offer full body waxing services for both men and women. Let’s break down everything you need to know about body waxing, so you can feel confident and prepared for your next appointment.

How Body Waxing Works

When you come to BARE Body Waxing Studio, we use high-quality wax to remove hair from the root, giving you smooth, hair-free skin. Here’s a quick rundown of the process:

  1. Preparation: Before your appointment, ensure your hair is at least 1/4 inch long (about the length of a grain of rice) to ensure the wax can grip the hair properly.

  2. Application: Our skilled estheticians apply a thin layer of warm wax to your skin in the direction of hair growth.

  3. Removal: We then use hard wax that solidifies on its own and quickly pull it off in the opposite direction of hair growth, removing the hair from the root.

  4. Aftercare: After waxing, we apply soothing products to calm the skin and reduce redness.

How Long Will Smoothness Last?

One of the biggest perks of waxing is long-lasting smoothness. Typically, you can expect to enjoy hair-free skin for about 3 to 6 weeks. This duration can vary depending on your individual hair growth cycle and how frequently you wax.

Potential Ingrown Hairs

Ingrown hairs can be a common side effect of waxing, but they’re preventable! When hair grows back, it sometimes curls back into the skin, causing red bumps. Our estheticians at BARE Body Waxing Studio have expert tips to help you minimize and manage ingrown hairs:

  • Exfoliate Regularly: Gently exfoliate your skin a couple of times a week to remove dead skin cells and help prevent ingrown hairs. We recommend using our Deck Scrub for sensitive areas like the Brazilian or underarms and our Ocean Road Body Scrub for larger areas like legs and full back.

  • Moisturize Daily: Keep your skin hydrated to reduce irritation and help prevent ingrown hairs. Use our Bump Eraiser Triple Action Lotion for smaller areas and our Ocean Road Body Lotion for larger areas of the body.

Expert Tips from our Professional Estheticians

  1. Schedule Regular Appointments: To maintain smooth skin, book your waxing appointments every 4 to 6 weeks. Consistent waxing can help weaken hair follicles over time, leading to finer and sparser hair regrowth.

  2. Avoid Shaving Between Waxes: Shaving between waxing appointments can disrupt your hair growth cycle and make your next waxing session more painful. Stick to your waxing routine for the best results.

  3. Wear Loose Clothing: After waxing, wear loose-fitting clothes to avoid irritation and allow your skin to breathe.

  4. Avoid Sun Exposure: Stay out of the sun and avoid tanning beds for at least 48 hours before and after waxing to prevent skin damage and irritation.
