One question we are often asked at Beautique Newquay, is if you can still wax whilst pregnant. The short answer is yes! You absolutely can still wax whilst pregnant, however you may experience more discomfort during your treatments than usual.
Your skin is often more sensitive than usual when pregnant, due to all the hormonal changes you are experiencing. This also can affect your hair growth, with a lot of clients having their hair grow quicker than usual, and in areas they have never had hair before!
Whilst pregnant we always advise our clients to book their appointments 1 – 2 weeks earlier than they usually would. Not only is your skin more sensitive but often you will find your hair grows quicker than usual. By booking your appointments earlier there will be less hair to remove which will help with the discomfort you may experience during the treatment.
If you have never booked in for a wax before, that’s ok! You can still book in for one, but we recommend starting with a bikini wax and working up to the Brazilian. Due to the extra blood flow to the area we recommend you start slow, and build up to the Brazilian to minimise the pain.
You will also find that after care is even more important whilst being pregnant.
A waxing appointment will not harm your baby, but if you feel particularly uneasy or unsure of whether waxing whilst pregnant is right for you we recommend you speak with your health care professional, after all they will know what is best for you and your baby.
