Many treatments at a medical spa are there to not only help you feel good about yourself, but also to help you feel relaxed and rejuvenated. For this reason, it can seem almost contradictory to offer services like bikini waxing! A lot of people are justifiably nervous about the process of a bikini waxing service, so our team here at Pure Refection Spa wanted to give you some tips to take the sting out of your next bikini waxing service.
What you do before your bikini waxing is often just as important as what choices you make during and after. Using a simple exfoliant on your bikini area for a few days in the shower will help immensely in terms of both comfort and cleanliness. If your hairs are longer than 1/4″, you might want to trim them a little beforehand. Some individuals choose to take a small, over-the-counter dose of pain reliever about half an hour before their appointment.
During your bikini wax, it’s okay to let your esthetician know if you are nervous. Practicing meditation, listening to your favorite music or even scrolling through your phone can help distract you during the process, which is usually over very quickly.
After bikini waxing, don’t go to the gym for at least 12 hours, since sweat and bacteria can lead to infections. Bring and wear some breathable cotton underwear for afterwards, and treat yourself to something nice for surviving your bikini waxing with no worries!
