When can I start ?

One should start as young as possible when the hair is still fine. It makes it less painful to remove. Consequently, over time waxing thins the hair so less grows back.

Wax vs shaving.

What of shaving?

Well, shaving doesn’t remove the hair totally. It only cuts it, but be assured it will grow back. There are recommendations for the best razor for shaving vaginal area. The only problem is that, you will have to do this process over and over again. And each time you shave, there are many risks to it. One obvious one is that you can cut yourself. Not only that, but you are advised to use a new razor each time. It’s a lot of work right?

  • You can start young. Some people worry at what age they should start waxing. Well, as young as possible. The advantage of starting as young as young as possible is that the hair is still fine and soft. As hair grows, it becomes thicker and difficult to wax. Therefore, by starting as young as possible you make it easier to wax.
  • Post treatment leaves your skin smooth. We have after waxing recommendations to make sure that your skin becomes so smooth. You can feel the smoothness of the area that has been waxed using your fingers. After all, who doesn’t want smooth skin right?
  • You perform it periodically according to your hair growth. Everyone is different. As such, the rate at which our hair grows differs also. You can have a customized timetable of when to wax!

Another advantage is that, with every wax your body gets exfoliated. It adds to your skin feeling silky and smooth. As a recommendation, this treatment should be performed every 3 – 6 weeks, depending on your hair growth.

4 Recommendations prior or before

So you have decided to try this amazing hair removal treatment, what should you do? Below are some of the recommendations to try out before treatment.

Take notes.

  1. You need some hair growth (minimum 1cm) for the wax to hold onto. However, not too long. This is because it can make the treatment more painful (so trim hair down to just the right length before your appointment).
  2. Please exfoliate the day before. This is very important.
  3. If you’re worried about pain, take one or two pain killers an hour before your appointment. Or try a numbing cream like Emla about 30 minutes beforehand.
  4. For the ladies, your skin is often more sensitive nearer to your cycle or during pregnancy. Thus, waxing can be more painful during this time
