Question

What is the difference between a Brazilian Wax, Playboy Bikini Wax, Extended Playboy Bikini Wax and the Sphinx wax?


Answers

Throughout the past few years people are trying to get fancy with their names.  Not everyone does the waxing the same.


Some salons offer a Brazilian Wax but only remove the hair from the outside like a deep Bikini Wax.  Others that perform Brazilians don’t wax the bum.  It’s hard to know what you are going to get when you go to a salon.

At Professional Skin we offer 1 type of Brazilian Wax.  The whole enchilada! Front to back, side to side and everything in-between. If you want to leave a little strip we can do that but for the most part everyone wants it all off!  That’s our Brazilian.  No worries when you come here.

Question Does getting a Brazilian Wax Hurt?
Answers The answer is NO!  You might have scanned the internet and found crazy stories about Brazilian waxing.  Not sure how many are true and how many are made up.

At Professional Skin I can tell you it does not hurt.  It is however a little uncomfortable the second the hair is removed.  That is it.  We specialize in Brazilians and we are as comfortable as it gets so relax!  You are in good hands.

All of our clients agree that the discomfort was not nearly as much as they thought.  Most agree it was not bad at all, and ALL agree it was worth it not to have to shave anymore.

Question What sanitary measures do you take at your salon?
Answers This is a great question!  Since we are educators in waxing (especially Brazilian waxing) we are meticulous when it comes to sanitation.  Here are some of the precautions we take and why:
  • We never use the same applicator twice.  Each and every time our waxing applicator touches your skin to apply the wax, it is thrown away.  This is to avoid cross contamination.
  • We ALWAYS WEAR GLOVES.
  • We always use sanitary bed coverings.
  • We use hospital grade sanitation for all our instruments like tweezers.

Question What can I do to make my waxing more comfortable?
Answers We have heard that clients receive a very comfortable service after they take 1 or 2 pain relievers 1 hour prior to their waxing service.  You are more then welcome to try this if you like.

You can purchase our “No Scream Cream”. It must be applied 1 hour prior to your appointment.  It will take the edge off your waxing. Click Here to order.

Question Does Brazilian waxing get easier?
Answers YES!  Each time you wax it becomes less & less uncomfortable.  Most people agree that their 2nd Brazilian wax was not uncomfortable at all.  Maintenance is the key.  If you maintain your waxing, you will never have pain again associated with waxing.

Question Do you take extra care with first time waxing customers?
Answers YES!  We understand that your first time getting waxed, especially a Brazilian, can be a little nerve racking.  We take extra time to explain what we are doing and why.  We also remove the hair is very small strips to maximize your comfort.

Question How old do I need to be to receive a Brazilian wax?
Answers We DO NOT perform Brazilian Waxing on  anyone under the age if 18.  Sorry.

Question Why are you the only one in the area to offer this service?
Answers Most salons do not specialize in waxing. Especially Brazilian services.  It is a very difficult service to perform due to the fact that the hair grows in many directions and it is a extremely technical procedure.  We are trainers for Brazilian waxing and perform about 25-40 per week in our salon. You will be very happy with our service.  Oh... and our price is right as well!

Question Can't I just get my Brazilian done at a spa or a salon?
Answers You can certainly get your Brazilian wax done anywhere that will provide it, HOWEVER, there are a few things you should know. Most places do not offer Brazilian waxing for a good reason.
  • It is much more difficult to perform then a simple leg or underarm.
  • The hair grows in many different directions and can be VERY uncomfortable if removed wrong.
  • Most estheticians are not formally trained in Brazilian waxing.
  • Most have picked it up from a video tape.
  • They use the wrong wax, incorrect removal method, unsanitary procedures and simply do not do enough of them to be good.
  • They are more expensive.
If you live to far and can't get here for your Brazilian wax, print this sheet.  It will help you locate a salon that will provide a good service.

Question Is it unhealthy to remove your pubic hair?
Answers A question I get once in a while.  The answer is NO!  We don’t know why we have pubic hair!  It does not keep us warm and it does not protect us.  It seems as though the prevailing theory relates to pheromones — scents that the body produces that can be sexually stimulating to others.  In prehistoric days this might have been useful but today serves no purpose at all!

Another theory is that it signals a person of the opposite sex that you are ready to take on a partner for reproduction.  Once again, not very useful in today’s day and age.  In short, all the research by the greatest minds in the world STILL cannot figure out why we have pubic hair.  To date, we have not found any factual evidence that removing your pubic hair is unhealthy in any way.

Question

Will a Brazilian Wax increase my sensitivity during sex?


Answers Yes, dramatically.  The difference is amazing.  When you remove the hair you have many more sensors on the skin exposed.  This greatly enhances the sensitivity of touch.  I have many clients that tell me they notice a huge difference just wearing their panties.  Not having any hair in the bikini area certainly has many advantages.

Question What do I wear during my waxing?
Answers Disposable g-string’s are always available for you to wear during your waxing. We do our best to preserve your modesty at all times and still give you a flawless waxing service!  If you come in for just a bikini wax and not a Brazilian, you will always be given a disposable g-string.

Question Do I have to get in all kinds of wacky positions during my Brazilian waxing?
Answers NO!  We have many different ways to remove all the hair during your Brazilian wax.  This will depend on your body type.  You can be certain that you will not have to get in any wacky positions.

NOTE:
  We never ask you to flip over and get on all 4's.  This is a practice done in most salons and we strongly disagree with this technique.   It is embarrassing and quite frankly humiliating to the client.

Question Is there a certain time of the month that is better for me to get waxed?
Answers YES! It is best to be in the center of your cycle.  A few days before or after will make it a bit more sensitive for some girls.  Most girls will not notice a difference.

Question I'm shy, will I be able to get a Brazilian wax?
Answers YES YOU CAN!  If you're embarrassed about getting waxed, try to remember, we are professionals. Please keep in mind that what might seem personal to you is a routine day at the office for us.  We do our best to maintain your privacy and make you as comfortable as possible.

Question I'm overweight.  Can I still get a Brazilian Wax?
Answers YES YOU CAN!  We are experienced in waxing overweight clients as well as small to medium framed clients.

Question Is Waxing Seasonal?

Answers No!  People who get Brazilian like the feeling of having ZERO hair with ZERO stubble, razor burn or irritation.  This is why almost all of our customers continue year round.  This also minimizes the discomfort associated with waxing.  It gets faster and more comfortable after each waxing.

Question Will I Get A Closer Wax At Professional Skin?
Answers At Professional Skin we use special waxes that get closer and are gentler on your skin.  This allows us to remove more hair with less discomfort.  The hair in your pubic area grows in many different directions (patterns).  Since the hair can only be removed in one direction at a time, this requires an area to be wax multiple times.  We use special waxes that adhere only to hair and do not stick to skin.  This is the reason why at Professional Skin you will receive a closer, more comfortable wax that lasts longer.
