A woman who truly appreciates beautiful lingerie knows it has the power to do more than just impress. Although she may enjoy showing off her most beautiful silk, lace, and leather in the company of lovers, that’s not the only time or reason she wears it. She wears her favorite pieces on ordinary occasions as well, or when she just wants to inspire, embolden, or even amuse herself. She may wear her most beautiful delicates for the mere joy of sitting through a boring
business meeting with her sexy secret…if only they knew. Or she may wear it on a first date, empowered by the knowledge that while she plans to show restraint, she’s ready for anything.
A woman who appreciates lingerie is a woman who understands that there is exquisite power in the smallest details. If this sounds like you – either the woman you are or the woman you want to be – Brazilian waxing might be your new favorite thing in the whole world.
What is Brazilian waxing?
Brazilian waxing removes all or most of the hair in your pubic region. Imagine how elegant you’ll feel in your lingerie without a single hair peeking out anywhere! Not every Brazilian looks the same. You have the option to go completely bare from the top of your bikini line all the way down and around, including the inside and outside cheek area of your tush. You may also choose to leave a small patch up top, or leave the tush alone. How you go Brazilian is up to you.
How to prepare for your Brazilian waxing treatment
Although you may be tempted to shave or trim prior to your appointment, it’s actually best if you do neither. The longer the hair, the more the wax has to grab onto, and the easier it is to remove the hair. If you come in with 4 to 6 weeks worth of growth, your hair should be at the minimum ¼ inch length recommended for waxing.
We won’t lie. Waxing does hurt, especially at first, when your hair follicles are larger than the pores in your skin (it hurts less the more you do it, we promise). In preparation for your waxing treatment, you can help minimize the pain by taking a mild pain medication such as ibuprofen about 30 minutes before your appointment. We also sell Numb-It, a topical anesthetic that you can apply to the treatment area 30 minutes before your Brazilian waxing session.
Additionally, some of our clients carry wipes with them for a refreshing last minute touch-up that helps provide them with feelings of cleanliness and confidence on their way into the treatment room.
Your Brazilian waxing procedure
When you come to Bare Elegance for your Brazilian wax, you will receive a customized procedure based on your desires. If it is your first Brazilian waxing treatment, we will schedule some extra time so you can ask questions and discuss your needs and wants with your esthetician.
We offer several different types of waxes, and your esthetician will tailor the treatment according to your hair type, stages of growth, growth patterns, and skin sensitivity. Most Brazilian sessions will begin with the upper and outer regions of your bikini line, working in and down before moving on to the tush – if you are going all bare.
You may experience some slight redness after your waxing session. This should last less than an hour or two, and any other symptoms (soreness or tiny bumps in the treatment area) should subside within a day or so. Your esthetician will give you a prescription card for at-home skincare to keep you smooth and elegant for as long as possible.
We take pride in our thorough service, and we take our motto seriously: No strays left behind. The treatment may take upwards of 25 minutes. When you’re finished, we welcome you to a glass of champagne and the opportunity to browse our collection of fine European lingerie.
Leave your worries at home
We understand that the idea of baring it all in the company of a stranger can be anxiety producing, but at Bare Elegance, we maintain a professional atmosphere of luxury and comfort that will put you at ease. Our estheticians are highly trained not only in the art of waxing but also in the art of discretion. They will leave the room while you undress from the waist down and then again while you dress, as well as provide you with a towel to drape over yourself during the session. You may be surprised by how far these simple details can go in minimizing your feeling of exposure.
If you remember that waxing is our business and that the Brazilian is our most popular waxing service, this may also help alleviate your anxiety. We’re professionals who are great at what we do, and nothing we’ve seen has fazed us.
