Want to know how to prepare for a blush-free Brazilian? This rather private treatment is one of the most popular among both women and men, and Australian Skin Clinics offer laser hair removal from the face to the toes, and all body areas in between, so we asked the experts. Here’s what you need to do to be prepared (down there) for a fast, comfortable and effective treatment.
Shave 12 hours ahead of your appointment
To ensure your treatment is effective, the root of the hair needs to be present in the follicle without any hair above the skin. This means you should shave the area 12 hours before your appointment. Avoid waxing, epilating or the use of depilatory creams for at least two weeks prior.
Shower that morning
Good hygiene is a must. A morning shower will ensure you are ready for a blush-free hair removal session. At Australian Skin Clinics, wet wipes are also available for a quick freshen-up!
Avoid sun exposure and fake tan
Sunburned, or even tanned areas are unsuitable for laser treatments. Avoid sun exposure and fake tan in that area two weeks prior. If you simply must go to the beach that weekend, throw on a sarong or a pair of boardshorts to cover the area and keep your skin safe for treatment.
Wear comfortable clothes
If you’re a first timer, opt for a skirt or loose pants. A snug pair of jeans will potentially irritate the area post treatment – especially if you are planning on running errands afterwards!
Ask questions and… breathe!
It’s important that you feel comfortable and understand each step of the process. Ask any questions you have during your consultation, and don’t feel shy to speak up if something pops into your head!
