Bikini Waxing for men and women - Do's & Dont's

If you're in Downtown San Diego and seeking professional Brazilian waxing services for both men and women, look no further than Suki Day Spa salon and wellness center. Located in the heart of the city, Suki Day Spa offers exceptional bikini waxing services that cater to the needs of both genders from all over Downtown, East Village, Marina, Little Italy, Hillcrest and surrounding areas. Whether you're a man or a woman, their skilled estheticians are trained to provide expert care and ensure a comfortable experience with a commitment to hygiene, quality, and customer satisfaction.

There are certain dos and don'ts to keep in mind to ensure a more comfortable and effective experience. Here are some guidelines to follow:


Do exfoliate the area gently a day or two before your waxing appointment. This helps remove dead skin cells and allows the wax to adhere better.

Do trim your hair to about a quarter-inch length before your appointment. Hair that is too long can be more painful to remove.

Do take a shower before your appointment to ensure you're clean and fresh.

Do communicate with your esthetician about your preferences and any concerns you may have. They are professionals and can provide guidance based on your needs.

Do take an over-the-counter pain reliever, like ibuprofen, about 30 minutes before your waxing session to help minimize discomfort.

Do relax and try to breathe deeply during the waxing process. This can help reduce pain and tension.

Do wear loose-fitting clothing to your appointment. Tight clothing can cause irritation after the waxing session.


Don't shave the area between waxing appointments. Waxing is most effective when the hair is allowed to grow to the proper length.

Don't apply any creams, lotions, or oils to the area before your appointment. These can interfere with the wax adhering properly.

Don't schedule a waxing appointment right before or during your menstrual cycle. You may be more sensitive during this time, making the process more uncomfortable.

Don't expose the waxed area to direct sunlight immediately after your appointment. The skin may be more sensitive and prone to sunburn.

Don't use harsh exfoliants or scrubs on the waxed area for a few days after your appointment. This can irritate the skin.

Don't engage in activities that may cause excessive sweating, such as intense exercise or hot tub use, for at least 24 hours after your waxing session. Sweat can irritate the freshly waxed skin.

Don't wear tight underwear or clothing immediately after the waxing session. Opt for loose, breathable fabrics to avoid irritation.

Remember, everyone's pain tolerance and skin sensitivity can vary, so what works for one person may not work for another. Following these general guidelines can help you have a more positive and comfortable Brazilian waxing experience
