Everything you wanted to know about a Bikini Wax but were embarrassed to ask

Bikini Waxing is one of Uni K Wax’s best selling services for both women and men- yep for both! This is why during the month of Halloween we want to TREAT ALL our existing and new customers with a special promotion for a Bikini Wax.

We get lots of questions regarding a bikini wax…here are the most frequent Q & A’s:

Q: What is the difference among all the Bikini Wax services?

A: It might be overwhelming, but it’s actually quite simple. We, at Uni K Wax, are the pioneers of the Brazilian and Full Bikini Wax. We named our Bikini Wax services as follows:

  • Bikini line: The name is self-explanatory. Removes a strip of hair along the front area outside the panty line.
  • Deep Bikini: As the name suggests, it is like a Bikini line but goes further down adding extra comfort.
  • Brazilian Bikini: Removes almost all hair, leaving only a landing strip of hair in the middle, it can be a rectangular strip (most popular) or triangular shape.
  • Full Bikini: Removes all hair in the front area leaving it completely hair free.
  • Bikini Top: Removes a straight line of hair at the top and may be added to any of our Bikini services or can be done by itself.

Q: Does a Bikini Wax hurt?

A: This is by far the most popular question. It sounds more intense than it actually is. Our elastic wax stretches to remove hair without strips and combined with our fast technique translates into a more comfortable hair removal experience for you.  In fact, Shape Magazine calls Uni K Wax the “ouch-less wax.” Our wax is always applied at body temperature making it a relaxing experience.

Q: Why would men want a Bikini Wax?

A: For the same reason women do. They don’t like hair in the area, also for hygienic and aesthetic purposes, the skin is more sensitive to the touch, they feel cleaner and neater, and gives the perception of being longer.

Q: How long does my hair need to be in order to be waxed?

A: The ideal length for hair to be removed is 1/8” to ¼”.

Q: How is Bikini Waxing more effective than shaving?

A: Uni K Wax is the smart choice to switch from shaving to waxing. Our technique weakens the hair follicle as a result your hair will start growing back slower, lighter, thinner, and sparser. On the contrary shaving will make your hair grow faster, thicker, coarser, and fuller with more than one hair growing from each pore.  Also, waxing is safer avoiding the daily nicks, cuts and in-grown hairs that come with shaving.

Q: How can I transition from shaving to waxing?

A: We offer a unique service called “Touch up,” that allows you to have the same Bikini Wax service within 12 days of your last appointment at any Uni K Wax Center. This service will help you even out the regrowth of your hair and get you to a normal hair cycle.

Q: How often should I get waxed?

A:  It depends on the hair regrowth, mostly between 4 to 6 weeks. During the summer and in some humid places it could be a little less.

Q: What can I do to feel more comfortable about getting a Bikini Wax?

A: At Uni K Wax, we specialize in the Bikini Wax and we pride ourselves on having the most professionally trained waxers that make you feel comfortable with our fast Bikini Waxing technique.

Q: How long does a Bikini Wax service take?

A: An appointment for a Bikini Wax can last 10 to 20 minutes depending on the type of service.

Q: How far in advance should I get a Bikini Wax before wearing a swimsuit?

A: 1 or 2 days is fine. If your skin is sensitive, don’t forget to apply sunscreen in the exposed area.

Q: When is the ideal time to wax?

A: Anytime is a good time to get waxed, but if you have your period and are very sensitive, refrain during those days.

Q: How should I take care of my skin in between waxing services?

A: You need to keep your skin healthy and hydrated in order to have a good waxing experience. Make sure to drink lots of water to hydrate from the inside out and use skin products to take care of your skin. Uni K Wax Centers has developed a complete collection of skin care products including: Citrus Body Polish to exfoliate dead skin cells, Body Perfect Dry Oil which should be used daily and Ultimate Balm to seal in the moisture.  See Uni K Wax complete Body Collection.
