About Hair Waxing Service
Waxing is the longest-lasting temporary hair removal technique available. When
wax is warm, it enters the follicle, allowing the hair to be pulled out from
the root. Hair grows back in 3 to 6 weeks. The disadvantage to waxing is that
it can be painful for those with sensitive skin. And hair must grow back by
half inch before waxing again (up to six weeks).
The best antidote to the pain of waxing is to try to relax. According to many
beauty practitioners, when a client is tense, the follicle closes and the wax
doesn't reach the root of the hair. Immediately after waxing, apply gentle
pressure to the area with your hands; icing the area also can help ease the
pain. The more often you get a wax treatment, the more accustomed you'll grow
to the experience.
Ingrown Hair Tips
A strand of hair
is an outgrowth of dead cells and the protein keratin that grows up from the
hair follicle. Each hair shaft grows about 1/4 inch per month, depending on
what stage of growth -- active or resting -- the hair is in. Genetics
determine how many hair follicles we have since no new follicles are formed
after birth. A woman's legs and arms contain an average of 13,500 hair
Ingrown hairs --
an annoying consequence of shaving and waxing -- when there's a buildup of
dead, dry skin resulting in pore blockage, when a hair curls into the skin and
grows in the wrong direction, resulting in a red, irritated bump that can
become infected. Though relaxing the muscles during shaving and waxing is said
to help prevent ingrown hairs, they can still happen. Some people recommend
plucking the hair using sharp-pointed tweezers and then cleaning the area with
peroxide; others say it's best to leave ingrown hairs alone to heal
To help avoid
ingrown hairs, start to apply exfoliating scrub during a daily shower after 24
hours waxing, rub your skin vigorously with a towel or exfoliating sponge
every time you bathe, finally apply suitable amount moisturizer to void dry
and feel itchy. Generally speaking, you should exfoliate any area with
containing ingrown hairs daily. This mainly helps to remove pore blockage. You
will get less in-growths and your hair will grow back with ease. Also, try
going for steam baths regularly, scrub them gently with sponge. Continue
waxing regularly. Your hair growth will diminish.
What is a Brazilian bikini wax?
Brazilian waxing refers to hair removal around the anus, perineum and vagina. To some people it means removing all the hair from the bikini area, and to others it means removing everything but a strip in the front. The Brazilian technique has gained in popularity and involves removal of most hair from the bikini area, leaving only a small strip of hair.
This is a very intimate type of waxing and will only be performed after careful consultation. How closely you trim, shave or wax your pubic hair is a personal preference. You should do whatever makes you comfortable, whether it's a bare look, a more natural look, or something in between.
Why go to this extreme?
It allows women to comfortably wear revealing swimwear and lingerie.
Can a man get a Brazilian bikini wax?
Many men are waxing rather than shaving to achieve a smooth genital region.
Yes, men can get either a standard bikini wax or a Brazilian bikini wax at the body dynamic. For a man's perspective on waxing.
How long will the results last?
After a client’s first waxing, the results can last 3 to 6 weeks depending on the individual’s hair re-growth rate. In most cases, hair growth is minimal during the first week or two and noticeably increases in the third and fourth week. Heat stimulates hair growth, therefore hair grows quicker in the summer than in the winter. With regular waxing the length of time between treatments will increase. Continued waxing results in sparse hair re-growth.
What do I wear during this waxing?
If you are comfortable, the Brazilian wax will be done without any draping. A towel will be available for draping if you prefer.
What is the procedure for Brazilian bikini waxing?
To begin, the hair is snipped with scissors, if necessary, and then wax is applied a little at a time. The hair is removed and the procedure continues. The wax used for this procedure is a no-strip wax, meaning it is applied to the hair to be removed, it "shrink-wraps" around the hairs, and is pulled off after it dries. The wax is made for sensitive skin, so it's great for bikini/Brazilian waxing. While waxing, it's best to pull the skin tight, so you may be asked to help stabilize an area with your hand. Stray hairs may also be tweezed.
After the hairs are removed, a first-aid solution containing lavender is applied to help soothe the area. It is a botanical solution, so please advise your skin care therapist if you are allergic to any foods - because if you can't eat it, you shouldn't put the extracts on your skin.
What are the possible side effects of waxing and how can they be minimized?
Although we can not predict or guarantee who may react, most clients do not experience reactions beyond redness and minor irritation. Hair may break at the root during waxing, causing some hairs to grow out faster. Please follow these guidelines to minimize irritation and possible break outs.
Avoid the sun immediately after waxing and please wear sun screen; recently waxed areas are prone to hyperpigmentation (permanent darkening of the skin) if exposed to the sun.
Avoid heavy exercise for at least 24 hours after waxing.
Avoid saunas, steam rooms, whirlpools and other heated sources for at least 48 hours.
Do not use exfoliating products (AHAs, scrubs, etc) and loofas for at least 24 hours after waxing as they might further irritate your skin.
Avoid tight clothing after waxing, especially in the waxed areas. Tight clothing may result in irritation and ingrown hairs
Regular exfoliation may be helpful to remove dead skin so your hairs can get out above the surface of the pores and not become ingrown.
Routine waxing helps the skin get accustomed to the procedure and may minimize irritation
Unfortunately, no hot bath, hot shower or oral sex for 10 hours after a Brazilian. While your pores are open, they are vulnerable to irritation by the extreme temperatures and infection by bacteria.
How long does Brazilian bikini waxing take?
Depending on the density of the hair growth, your waxing appointment will take between thirty minutes and one hour for women, and 45 minutes to 90 minutes for men.
