Over the years, we have heard every concern in the book, and we have an answer for all of them. Read on for some of the most common fears people have about waxing, and why you shouldn’t stress about them.

It’s going to hurt!

This is probably the fear that stops people from getting waxed the most often. When you haven’t been waxed before, it’s easy to buy into the idea that waxing is extremely painful because of the way it is presented in the media. We aren’t going to pretend like waxing doesn’t cause discomfort, because after all, you are ripping your hair out; there is no way that is going to be completely painless! However, at Brazils Waxing Center, we have done everything in our power to reduce the risk of our waxing services causing you extreme pain. First, we use a special vegan wax that we formulated ourselves to be minimally painful. Additionally, our trained technicians use a technique that reduces the amount of discomfort that comes with waxing. Also keep in mind that waxing is a highly efficient method of hair removal. Because it doesn’t take very long, you are only experiencing discomfort for a matter of seconds, while you get to enjoy weeks of smooth, hairless skin until your next appointment! While waxing may be uncomfortable, it simply isn’t as bad as you think, and in the end, it is worth it. Just ask our regulars!


I don’t want ingrown hairs.

This is a common scenario for us: a new customer describes how their friend got waxed and got a million ingrown hairs, which is why they have never come in for a wax before. Yes, ingrown hairs are possible when you get waxed; however, they are much less common if you use the right precautions. Chances are your friend failed to exfoliate before their waxing service, or wore tight clothing in their appointment, or chose to work out right after they got waxed. If you do not take the proper precautions, ingrown hairs are inevitable. Here at Brazils Waxing Center, we do everything in our power to set you up for success by educating you on proper aftercare. If you prevent ingrown hairs, you are unlikely to develop them.

Waxing is too expensive.

You know what is really expensive? Razors! People don’t think about it because they only have to pay 15 dollars or so for new razor heads, but this expense really adds up. Think about how often you shave, whether it is every day or every few days, and how many razors you really go through. Compared to the cost of getting waxed every few weeks, waxing is actually a less expensive option over time. That, coupled with how much more effective waxing is, makes it clear that the cost is worth it.


Waxing will damage my skin.

This couldn’t be further from the truth. First off, at Brazils Waxing Center, we use hard wax, which only adheres to the hair; you don’t have to worry about it damaging your skin. Additionally, an integral part of waxing is exfoliating and moisturizing, which are extremely beneficial to your skin. If you are concerned about damaging your skin by waxing, rest assured that this is not something you need to worry about.


Waxing is awkward.

We hear this most often about Brazilian waxes, though some people feel uncomfortable having someone perform any waxing service on them. We understand that some people feel awkward when strangers touch them, but we would like to reassure you that our staff at Brazils Waxing Center is extremely professional and friendly. We are “people people,” so we are great at putting you at ease during your waxing service.
