If you want to bare it all ‘down there’ and go for a Brazilian wax, then you might be wondering if what does a Brazilian wax include. It is a very popular waxing procedure for the nether part that will leave your skin totally hairless and very smooth. If you are a beginner, it is recommended that you start with the regular bikini wax first, but we always recommend a Brazilan wax. It’s like dipping your toe in the water but if you think you can dive in and try the Brazilian, here are the things included in the treatment.
Things To Expect
Most of the Brazilian waxing treatments happen in a private room where you will be left alone to strip bare from your waist down. You will then lie on the table and be given a paper thong or towel with the purpose of making you feel more comfortable.
However, your integrity will be fully tested because the waxer will be going to see every nook and cranny of your most intimate part. But there is nothing to be so ashamed really because estheticians are also professionals who have seen it all before. You can think of a Brazilian waxing no more than your usual visit to your dentist or doctor.
Preparation You Can Do
If there is one thing that any kind of waxing requires a certain length of hair for the wax to get a stronghold. The general rule of thumb is to have your pubic hair to be at a fourth of an inch or about the length or a minimum of two weeks hair length. Any hair shorter than that will be too hard for the wax to take hold and pull out. So, if your hair is not long enough, your appointment will be cancelled and you’ll be sent back home.
Similarly, your hair should not be too long as it will be more painful to pull it out from the root. This is why the esthetician has to trim your pubic hair if they see that it’s too long enough and cut it down to the sufficient hair length.
What Does A Brazilian Wax Conver
Unlike a bikini wax which includes waxing your bikini line only, a Brazilian wax involves hair removal from your entire nether region. It will remove everything down from the pubic area, the labia, bikini line and anus, leaving your skin completely hair-free and smooth. So, yes, you can think of it as a very delicate procedure that involves the following steps:
The esthetician will wear gloves prior to touching the waxing tools and will use fresh sticks for every application and must never ever double-dip them into the melting wax. Your waxer will begin in your front part while moving its way towards your backside. Before any waxing starts, make sure to tell your esthetician if you prefer to have a landing strip or you want a complete bare.
If your waxer considers soft wax, you can expect the professional to apply some powder to your skin as a way to prevent the hot wax from sticking.
Next is for the waxer to dip the wooden stick into the pot where the hot wax is being melted. The wax will then be spread thinly over your skin in the same direction of your hair growth.
What comes next is for the waxer to place a cloth strip over the wax while pressing it firmly down for your hair to stick into. Once it cooled off, the strip will be pulled off in the opposite direction of your hair in a swift motion, removing your hairs by their roots. In case you can’t bear the pain or if you need some short breaks from the stinging sensation, you are free to tell your waxer.
Once all your hairs at the front are removed, with some left if you prefer a landing strip, the waxer will then go over to the in-between of your butt cheeks. In other words, in your anus where there are some stray hairs growing in there as well. In order for the professional to remove every strand of your hair from everywhere, you might be asked to make different positions where it will be accessible for the waxer to reach every area.
While you may feel a bit awkward or embarrassed, the good thing is that the anus is the least painful part for most clients. When the waxing on and off has been over, the esthetician will remove any stray hairs left or leave some for the design you want. And if you want, you can even try to have the landing strip dyed. To finally end the entire procedure, the waxer may use a soothing lotion over the treated area to help relieve any discomfort you may have felt.
Why You Need To Have Regular Brazilian Waxing
Now that you know what is included in a Brazilian waxing procedure, the next thing you should know is the importance of having it done on a regular basis. In general, pubic hair regrowth takes about 3 to 6 weeks, this is why you are expected to visit your waxer on the same timeframe regularly if you want to enjoy better and longer-lasting results.
Moreover, the pain becomes less and less each time you visit your esthetician and the time interval needed in between each of your Brazilian wax session becomes longer. Better yet, your hair regrowth becomes thinner and sparser.
The exact time you need to go for another waxing session depends on your hair type. The best time to go is when your hair reaches the required length. If your hair is coarser or if it does not grow that fast, it may take a bit longer than usual.
Finally, don’t forget to choose the best professional waxer whom you can trust to give you the best result every time you visit the salon or spa. In this way, you don’t have to show your most private part to another stranger.
