  • 1. Find a specialist mintspa.org /blog/tips-f irst-time-body-leg-waxers/ Body waxing has long been popular with women wanting to remove excess hair. Lately, men have discovered it also. An esthetician is a person who specializes in caring f or the outer skin of a person. It is the specialist you will likely be dealing with should you choose to have a body or leg waxing. It is important to prepare yourself in advance f or this endeavor, as there can be discomf ort involved, especially if the procedure is not gone about correctly. Here are a f ew tips to help both men and women prepare f or their f irst ever waxing treatment. You will want to f ind someone who is a licensed esthetician. While there is no law, as there is with things like medicine, that determines who can and can’t perf orm a waxing, you want to be sure the person you entrust your skin to has been properly trained. Ask about their training and if they have been licensed f or this particular procedure. Sanitation Look around to make sure that the area where the waxing is to be done is clean and that instruments are kept in disinf ectant when not in use. Disposable coverings should be on the tables and the esthetician should wear disposable gloves throughout the waxing. If you question the sanitation of a particular place, don’t hesitate to search out a dif f erent one. Don’t shave Telling someone who wants rid of excess hair not to shave seems counter-productive, but you will want to go three to f our weeks without shaving bef ore a waxing. The hair needs to be long enough f or the wax to adhere to and if it is too short, the results will not be as great. In addition, more skin irritation can occur if the hair is too short. Sensitive areas
  • 2. If a bikini or Brazilian waxing is part of your plan, women need to try and schedule it f or the week af ter their menstrual cycle. This is the time when the area in question will be less sensitive and there will be less discomf ort involved. Men may want to take a couple pain killers bef ore the event to help deal with the pain. Yes, there will be pain! This is a very sensitive area and the skin is more tender here. Wax types While the type of wax used may be determined by the esthetician, there is always the chance you can choose. Strip waxing is less expensive but sof t wax is gentler to the skin. It is almost certain you want to choose the sof t wax f or more sensitive areas. As f or the other areas, it will be more a matter of whether you want to spend less money or experience less discomf ort. Test first It may seem like the logical thing to go f or an all-out waxing once you make up your mind and get the courage. Don’t. Everyone responds dif f erently and you will do better if you “test wax” a f airly non-sensitive area f irst and see how you react to both the discomf ort and the wax. You will want to see how much, if any irritation is caused. It is better to have one small area irritated than a majority of your body red and sore. Medication warning Some medications cause the skin to be extra sensitive. Make sure the esthetician is aware of all medications you are taking so she can inf orm you if any are apt to make the waxing more painf ul or if it might be wise to avoid it completely. In most cases, the medication will not negatively inf luence the procedure.
