December Blog Post: What is intimate waxing?


Intimate waxing can be an uncomfortable subject to talk about. It's not for every client. It's not for every Esthtieican to perform! Waxing as a form of hair removal was something that came very easy to me early in my career as an Esthetician. I had the privilege of being trained by some of the best in the business! I am forever grateful to Lori Nestore also known as The Wax Queen, CEO of Tuel Skin Care and Berins Wax. My fellow Esthetician sister, Kimyatta Brown, Owner of "Is Your Kitty Frisky". Most notably my Esthy Bestie, Stephanie Laynes, CEO and Creator of Se Brazil Wax. With friends like these, I have been exposed to the wax game at a high level!


Now that you know a little about the company I keep, let's chat about some Intimate Waxing FAQs and common misconceptions.


Q: What is Intimate Waxing?

Intimate waxing is hair removal from the body from any area the client determines to be intimate. This could include anywhere on the body however, it is usually defined as hair removal from the chest, breasts or genital areas.


Q: Is waxing a safe form of hair removal?

Waxing is generally a safe form of hair removal. There are some clients for whom it is not recommended. Those who have chronic medical conditions that require medications that can cause the skin to be more sensitive than normal. For others who are taking oral medications such as Accutane or other topical skincare treatments like Retinols, AHAs, BHAs just to name a few, the skin could also be compromised and not suitable to receive any waxing services.


Q: How should I prepare before getting waxed?

To prepare for an intimate waxing service, the skin should be free of any abrasions or irritation. The area should be clean and free of any lotions or oils. Avoid over-cleansing or stripping the skin before the waxing service.


Q: Does it hurt?

Intimate waxing should not hurt to the level of unbearable pain. It can be described as uncomfortable and may have moments of brief pain but not lingering. I offer post-care products to support skin healing and hydration to the area between services.


Q: How often should I get Intimate Waxing services?

For the best results, intimate waxing should be done every 4-6 weeks. The key is CONSISTENCY. Hair growth is on a three-part cycle. The consistency of waxing allows for a shift to the hair cycle and the removal of hair from the follicle sends a signal to the body to slow hair growth.
