For a woman with lots of pubic hair, a bikini wax will ensure she isn't embarrassed when showing a bikini line when wearing a thong, string bikini, or a revealing swimsuit. Also, many women and men believe that less hair in the pubic area looks and feels more comfortable. This has led to a trend not just for more women to have a bikini wax but to go for total hair removal from the area via a Brazilian wax.
If you are considering having a bikini wax, keep in mind that the pubic hair removal process can be a bit painful and it's a regular beauty treatment as hair will grow back in around 3 weeks.
Before you have your treatment, take a shower and clean your pubic area. Don't worry about the embarrassment factor—a waxer has seen it all before and, really, it’s no more embarrassing than getting undressed at the gym. In fact, it is less embarrassing because you're with a woman who does it as a full-time job. They don't feel uncomfortable and neither should you.
You will need to lie on a bed with your knees up or legs down. The therapist will use low-temperature wax which causes less pain. When the wax cools, the therapist will remove the pubic hair. This is where you will feel some pain or discomfort but it's not normally as bad as most people think it will be and the first time is always the most painful.
After the first session, it gets more comfortable and easier. The waxer will ask you to get into some odd positions for easy access so she can remove the hair. If you feel uncomfortable or nervous, just tell the therapist and she will pause, generally, it's the anticipation more than the pain most women fear. When the waxing is done, a soothing lotion will be applied to the waxed area. Your bikini area will stay hairless for around 3 weeks with no maintenance at all and then you will be due to another session with your waxer.
For 15–30 minutes of discomfort, it’s not as bad as most women think it will be, and most women are delighted with their new. It's clean, sensual, liberating, and that's something for all women to enjoy!
It can be painful but this is minimized by using a special wax (Brazilian hard wax) that does not adhere to the skin. Many clients say that it is not as bad as they imagined it would be.
Wear casual, comfortable clothing. Only the areas that need to be waxed need to be uncovered as and when they get worked on.
BSC stands for Back, Sac, and Crack. A mix of Brazilian and crème waxing to remove hair from these areas.
Don’t worry. This does happen on occasion and usually passes quite quickly—your therapist will just ignore it and get on with the job. Please note, however, that any inappropriate behavior or language will result in the therapist stopping the treatment and asking you to leave (even if the job is half done!).
Your waxing may be more comfortable if the hair is shaved down but remember there MUST be at least 5mm of hair for the waxing to be effective. To guarantee this, no shaving must be done within 3 weeks of your treatment. Check with your therapist before shaving.
Exfoliate the skin thoroughly to remove dead skin cells. Moisturize the skin every day. If the skin is supple new growth can break through more easily, reducing the risk of ingrowing hairs and infection.
*Note:* If you are thinking of booking a waxing please ensure that your hair length is at least 5mm.
