How to Prepare for a Body Waxing Session


How Should I Prepare?

  • Apply some heat by taking a warm (not hot) shower or bath, or apply a warm compress immediately before waxing to open the skin’s pores and soften the skin.  This will allow the hair follicles to come out easier (this is not always possible). This with help with discomfort and help prevent irritation from the waxing process.


  • Be clean. Come freshly showered.


  • Be dry. Cleanliness is appreciated, but please skip the lotion. You'll get better results if your skin is less oily.


  • Be hairy. Your hair should be at least ¼ of an inch in length (which makes it long enough to lay flat on your skin). Please don't shave for at least two weeks prior to your appointment to ensure that your hair is long enough! Also, if you've 'let it go' down there please trim any longer hairs to the proper length prior to your appointment.


  • Be comfortable. If possible, wear loose clothing to prevent irritation in the post-wax phase.


  • Be relaxed. Reportedly the more relaxed your muscles are, the better your hair removal results will be!

Pre-Brazilian Waxing Prep:

  • Women's skin is often more sensitive during the time near your period.  Waxing can be more painful than normal during this time. Please schedule your appointment two days before or after your period. If you are on your period at the time of your appointment, please tell your technician. 


  • Pain relievers: Take Ibuprofen 30- 45 minutes before your appointment. If you’re concerned about pain, limit caffeine for several hours prior to appointment. We may use a numbing spray prior to waxing to reduce discomfort. Taking antacids (Tums) prior to your appointment also prevents nausea.

Ibuprofen is available for your convenience at the front dest for a small fee or add it to your reservation by calling or desk at (415)626-8505 or booking online
