Preparing for Brazilian, Bikini, & Body Waxing
Waxing for special occasions
We recommend getting waxed at least twice before a special occasion (wedding, vacation, etc) if you have never been waxed before or when trying a new wax. We use the safest and highest quality depilatories available - reactions are rare but still a risk. Allow at least 28 days/4 weeks between the two waxing visits. On the visit right before the event, it is best to schedule the appointment at least 48 hours prior to the event (i.e. if you are getting married Saturday, get waxed no later than Thursday).
Allow at least 2 weeks of no shaving, tweezing, etc. It is ok to have makeup on when getting waxed at Bare Bear. Do not exfoliate, scrub, or use chemical exfoliatiants (like glycolic acid) the area(s) to be waxed within 7 days of your appointment. For best results, keep a regular waxing schedule every 2-3 weeks and do not shave, trim, or tweeze between appointments.
Can I get waxed while on my period?
Yes! If you are on your period, it's not a problem as we are accustomed to waxing ladies who are menstruating when a tampon, cup, disc, etc is worn during your service.
Can I get waxed while I'm pregnant?
Yes! We are accustomed to waxing ladies all the way through their pregnancies with their doctor's approval.
Can I wear underwear during a bikini wax?
For a Classic Bikini wax you can go commando, wear your own undies, or you may elect for disposables that we provide complimentary upon request. Brazilian Waxing and most Modified Brazilian waxes are performed without undies and a disposable towel is provided for your comfort and is removed during the waxing procedure.
Can I use numbing cream?
We do not recommend using a numbing cream. If you choose to do so, be sure to 1. follow the instructions on the package and 2. let your Waxing Specialist know.
Other ways to decrease pain sensitivity is to limit stimulants like coffee/caffeine and being hydrated by drinking plenty of water.
