What Happens During Brazilian Hair Removal

Have you been wondering about how to get a flawless, smooth body? If so, then Brazilian Hair Removal may be the method for you, but we know it can take a bit of courage to decide to try it. It began as a trend among celebrities but has become one of the most exciting waxing options available for everyone. With Brazilian hair removal, you have the ability to keep as much or as little hair as you'd like. But, how exactly does it work? We'll explain the process and hopefully remove some of the mystery.

What is Brazilian Wax?

Brazilian Wax is a treatment that removes unwanted hair in the genital area. As discussed above, this can be done partially, in the form of a landing strip or triangle, or the hair in the area can be fully removed. This includes the top, sides, front, and even the hard-to-reach places in the back. A full Brazilian wax leaves you completely smooth and clean.

How is it done?

  1. During the session, you will need to lie down without your pants while bending your knees and separating your legs.
  2. Your beautician might apply a cleaning solution on the area before the hot wax.
  3. The hot wax is applied in the direction of growing hair and left for some time.
  4. When it’s time to remove the strip, the wax specialist will pull the piece swiftly to remove the hair.
  5. This is repeated until the desired appearance is achieved.

Does it hurt?

This is the question most of us worry about when considering a Brazilian wax. The hair in the genital area is often coarse and thick, and we worry about the pain that may come from removing it. Your first wax can be quite painful, but it is for a relatively short time, and the results are worth it. It may sting even for women who shave that hair regularly. However, the pain becomes less with each session.

Things to Remember After a Brazilian Wax Treatment

There are certain things you should remember after having a Brazilian wax:

  1. It's important to avoid taking baths immediately after the procedure. Contact with hot water on the sensitive area can cause severe rashes, itchiness and other issues, while cold water can encourage infection.
  2. Avoiding intense workouts after your session. Sweating can lead to infection in a freshly waxes area, and intense movement may cause friction and rashes.
  3. Intercourse and exfoliation of the skin should be avoided immediately after treatment, in order to prevent ingrown hairs. 
  4. Avoid artificial fragrances, colored soaps, and lotions, as these can irritate the skin. A mild baby soap can be used to clean the skin without causing any issues.


Although, Brazilian Hair Removal is one of the most rigorous and painful wax methods, following a proper aftercare routine can give you a boost of self-confidence and a positive outlook of your body.
