Brazilian Wax: How long does it last before hair starts to grow? It takes between 4-6 weeks to grow back but it grows back much softer and not as thick its different for everyone though so this can vary.
What exactly gets covered in a brazilian wax? It includes the bikini line. A brazilian will get rid of all the hair apart from a trimmed landing strip at the top. You can even ask them to take everything off. So yes, the brazilian will do the lot and it would be the one you want. Plus they look really sexy.
What is the best way to do a Brazilian wax without going to a spa? There is a product called Micro Tweeze I believe it to be the best wax product of all time, it is simple, clean and inexpensive. Do not use a depilatory as that region is sensitive and likely to result in chemical burns that are far from sexy.
Can someone please explain the process of a Brazilian wax to me? Ok...so im not a shy person but I decided to do this myself about 6 months ago and definately was a bit hesitant. Its not bad at all. The give you a litle paper thong..and when i say little, I mean t wouldnt sufficiently cover a 5 year old lol...but you get to keep that on. Its kinda like saying im going to give you this little shard of fabric in hopes you will be able to keep a shard of self respect. Haha, im just kidding. My waxer made me very comfortable and talked the whole time so it wasnt as ackward. The remove every single bit of hair, from the top of your bikini line to the top of your bum crack. It feels great afterwards! As far as pain goes, it various depending on how course your hair is. For instance, a friend of mine did it before me and it was extremely painful for her because she had course curly hair. As for me, I have thin, fine hair and it barely even fazed me. Take about 3 ibuprofen about an hour before you go to help with the pain.
What can I expect during my brazilian wax? Just make sure you shower before appointment! That's the only thing us professional expect. We know its strange to be naked in front of someone with your body in a fashion you never thought possible! You are going to find ways to position your body you never thought possible, seriously! It will hurt a bit. But your waxer will walk you through it. Trust me, she is used to nervous women during this service. The price is between $50-$65. Tip 18% as that is customary in NY. Once you get over the first appointment you will feel much better. Just relax don't tense your body. If you tense it hurts more. And some women ever pass gas during this service, don't feel embarrassed, like i said as a professional we are used to this.
How long after a brazilian wax before you can tan?
I would wait a day or two...and make sure you put tanning lotion around...the area...so it doesnt get as irritated from the UV rays. o, and moisturize like crazy!
How long after shaving do I need to wait for Brazilian wax? Wait until you can grip the hair with your fingers and pull. The appropriate length is at LEAST a half an inch, otherwise the wax won't be able to grip the hair, and you have to go through painful plucking! The longer the better. Good luck!
How often to get a Brazilian wax? I have been getting a Brazilian for 11 years now. I am also licensed to wax. You will go back in 3-4 weeks. I recommend 4 weeks for the first 3 waxes. As you continue to go you will see more even growth pattern. If you go back now you will have longer hairs next week. It is well worth the money!! I started paying $60 now 11 years later I only pay $25. Your esthetician will probably lower your price. Don`t be afraid to ask her. You will thin out with every wax. Just be patient:o)
OH!! and the pain get less painful. probably by your fith wax.
Can you get chlamydia from getting a brazilian wax? OK, S.T.D. Sexually Transmitted....hints the S and the T...your doctor was right. Although some cases are through mouth, skin to skin...but NOT double dipping your wax stick. No it is not possible.
How much should I tip the lady that does my Brazilian wax?
if she did a great job and you were happy with it then $15 is perfect. If she did an okay job and you were still fairly happy with it then $10. $5 if she made you feel uncomfortable or any other minor problem.
Is there any way to avoid the pain involved in a Brazilian wax?
not unless you supply your own topical numbing agent, or ask if they have one. and that won't even work very well. beauty is pain, hun! lol
Can I have Brazilian Wax if I've almost lost consciousness while they plucked my eyebrows once? Ummm you probably shouldnt since its in and even more sensitive area than your face, maybe you could do an at home one and if you can endure that then you can try going to a pro. Good Luck!
Brazilian Wax - How to prevent ingrown hairs?
Yes, begin exfoliating - gently - on a daily basis, but don't begin exfoliation until 24 hours have passed since you had your waxing done. Also, right after waxing, you can apply a skin lotion which contains salacylic acid to the area. It doesn't matter what kind, just look for one which has a high percentage of that ingredient. Use it right after waxing, and twice a day thereafter. That will help to prevent bumps and ingrown hairs. One other thing, try to not wear tight clothing for at least 24 hours after waxing. Tight clothing which rubs against your skin are almost certain to cause ingrowns and red bumps. Avoid this if you can.
How to properly shave without getting razor bumps and how to achieve the brazilian wax look by shaving? Dont use veet or nair or any of those stinky hair removal creams. There nasty, and when I use them its just as if i shaved and it still grows back spiky. When I shave I like make sure I have been taking a hot bath for a while so the skin is like way ready to shave and I use conditioner, it makes it really smooth and I dont get any cuts at all, also I kind of shave in every direction, like I go over it again going the other way. And when Im dont if their are any hairs left, like under the skin or something I just pluck them out with tweezers. This works good with me.
Would a brazilian wax cause me to go into labor? LOL, no it will not cause you to go into labor, but you may want to hold off on waxing "down there" until after the baby is born. Waxing may prove too uncomfortable for you since you're almost full term. They require you to get into some weird positions at times, and your belly may hinder you. Plus it HURTS for real, and you'll get enough of that when you go in to labor. :)
Just got a brazilian wax and already have stubble-y hairs?
There must be some of the hair that didnt get pulled out by the root, since its so unlikely for hair to be growing back already it it was done properly. Perhaps go to a salon next time? I'd keep getting it done though, they look really sexy.
Going to a gynecologist with a brazilian wax?
I am a nurse in an Emergency Department and I have seen it all (women with barrettes in their hair down there). And I am sure that a gynecologist has seen even more than that. I also shave everything. I think that is the trend these days and you definitely won't be the first person they would have seen. Not to mention the fact that they wouldn't say anything even if they did think it was weird.
Women - why is it hard to pee standing up with a brazilian wax done? Ok, I'll tackle this one honestly. Peeing standing up isn't impossible - not by a long shot (pun intended) - and it is the sanitary way to go in a filthy world. I've noticed my own aim can be way off after a night of wild sex, and since a brazilian wax can cause skin irritation, and some swelling of the labia which you might not notice but is still there, I assume the cause and effect are the same. It doesn't take much of a swelling to get in the way of your stream. My solution is to go back to hover peeing until 48 to 72 hours afterward when the irritation is gone and the swelling goes down - then all should be normal.
How to do brazilian wax at home? It hurts really, really bad the first time. You will have a hard time doing this to yourself, trust me. You will probably need somebody else to do this to you. There are two types of waxes to use. One type is a cold wax that you put on and then use strips of cloth to rip the hair off. You use this wax for the butt, area above the butt, and for pubic hair above your private region. There is a second type of wax which is green and is spread on warm. It dries and then you work your fingers under it and pull it off. With both types of wax you have to pull in the direction of the hair and do it fast to rip it out. Also, not sure how you will wax the areas you can't see like your butt, ana1 region, etc... I really recommend having someone else do this to you. Sorry I don't know the names of the waxes or where to get them. Beauty salons should know what they are called, and they should use both types for bikini waxes or other types of waxes. It is also good for only about a month, then you need to do it again. Do it when the hair is between 1/4" and 1/2". Also, before you wax the first time, trim down your hair to that length or it will hurt so bad you won't believe it.
How do I undergo my first brazilian bikini wax? Don't do it yourself, go to a salon and get it done by a professional. My girlfriend did it herself, but got much better results from a salon. Its worth it.
How to ease the pain of a Brazilian Bikini Wax? You could try a topical anesthetic. Here in Canada, there is an over the counter product called EMLA, which is a cream you can apply to the skin 20-30 minutes prior to waxing, then wipe off. It is similar to what the dentist brushes onto your gums to freeze it before using the freezing needle. It would work best if you also cover the area with plastic wrap to maximize absorption. It is short acting and will wear off fairly quickly, so it should last just long enough for you to finish.
How long does a brazilian wax job last? Any waxing lasts as long as it takes a new hair to grow. That means that the ones that were pulled out won't be back for a while, but any baby hairs that were just under the surface will show up in a couple of days. The good news is that all the hair will be new hair (soft & pointed) and not cut hair (stubbly & blunt). You shouldn't be red or broken out afterwards - your waxer should have a product for ingrown hairs like TendSkin. Really, you should buy it (you can always share with your new hubbie and save him from razor burn)
What are the benefits of getting a brazilian wax? I used to shave and despite bumps I was content with doing this until my friend talked me into getting a brazilian. It did hurt, but feels great afterwards. I have gone at least 5 more times since. It lasts a long time and eventually the hair grows in more sparce and softer and thinner. Basically it lasts longer than shaving and then over time you can wax less often as well. Using products like Pre-kini which I got from the drugstore helps a LOT. (directions on bottle) Also Use Ibuprofen before you go and after and then you wont have the inflammation and redness you might have otherwise. All my experiences have been fabulous and it really leaves you smooth. I get everything removed, so my waxer used the hard wax first and then the soft wax to get any strays. Hope this helps! :)
How can I get rid of bumps after having brazilian wax done?
You should use Azulene Finishing oil...It helps remoisturize your legs and makes them look really nice. It got rid of my bumps really fast and it smelled really good to. :D hope this helped
What are the advantages of a Brazilian wax over shaving? Believe it or not, most women don't shave or wax. Pubic hair on a woman is as natural as it is on a man. This is just a fashion thing, and it will pass like the others. But to answer your question, waxing is quicker, lasts a lot longer, and doesn't cause razor burn or the risk of cuts in sensitive areas.
Should I schedule a Brazilian wax 1 week after 1st day or last day of my period? I think it's actually one week after the start of your period. Your hormones are calmer and your sensitivity is reduced. It depends on your pain tolerance and whether or not you've had this done before. You should be fine if you do it a week after the start.
When getting a brazilian wax, do they remove hair from your labia?
If you can do the bikini area, you can do the brazilian =o) My first time getting waxed was brazilian, though I get the "strip tease" which they just leave a little thin strip of hair. First time i didn't know what to expect, but it's not as bad as everyone makes it out to be. Just be sure to go to someone that is recommended to you. If you go to just anyone they might not be great and you can get bruising and red bumps. I go to the same lady...and each time it gets easier, plus it's friggin sexy! You'll love it! You may be a little sore for that first day, but that's normal, after that you'll be doin bathroom breaks all the time to check out how sexy you look!
What's the difference between a Brazilian Wax and a Brazilian Tidy? You will need a Brazilian wax. This is referring to the fact that you are going to have a lot more hair then someone who gets them all the time and just needs to go in to 'tidy' things up.
When you get a brazilian wax, do they wax EVERYTHING? Brazilian waxing refers to a removal of almost everything, front to back except for a thin strip of hair on the pubis. An extreme form of bikini waxing, it involves a complete removal of hair from the buttocks and adjacent to the anus. Waxes that completely remove the pubic hair are known as a full Brazilian wax, full Bikini wax, Hollywood wax, the Sphinx or the full monty.
Can you catch any diseases by having a brazilian wax done? How sanitary is that?
No I wouldn't imagine something would be passed on. Besides the wax is warm so it would inhibit some growth of bacteria. But yeah I'm sure there are some cases of people getting sick. But I doubt its anything like hepatitis.
Whats the best way to care for a Brazilian wax? grapeseed oil and camphor. you can get grapeseed oil at a healthfood store and camphor oil too...just put a few drops of the camphor in the grapeseed oil. it's important to keep moisturized with a noncomedogenic moisturizer to avoid bumps rashes and ingrown hairs. the exfoliating is good, just be sure you are using something really mild on that sensitive area! the other thing is not wearing tight clothing as it tends to irritate the skin and ingrown hairs often happen where clothing is rubbing. wearing undies that don't have tight elastic is good...v.s. makes good ones that are lace down thar and aren't tight or abrasive to the freshly de-haired area. enjoy that wax job.
How to act during a brazilian wax?
Just tell her - I am really nervous, or say thats too hot, or that really hurts, we don't know if you don't say it. Don't be dramatic or playful just say what you mean.
What is the difference between a Hollywood wax and a Brazilian wax?
Brazilian - All the hair is removed apart from a trimmed landing strip at the top. Hollywood - ALL the hair is removed. either of them look really sexy.
Where should I go to get a brazilian wax done?
a professional salon is your best bet it does hurt quite a bit but taking an ibuprofen an hour before going lessens the pain it can cost anywhere from 25 to 100 depends on place
Does anyone know if there is an age limit for getting a Brazilian wax at a salon?
usually there is no age limit, in fact the women who do my brazillian actually tell me that it is the best thing to happen to women of th etwenty first century. Plus the women who does mine has a ballet daughter and waxes hers for her daughter so shes totally confortable doing brazillians. By the way I had my first brazillian when I was 15, I never regretted it although you will have to worry about in groun hairs. They look like pimiple and feel weird!
What should I do to prepare for a brazilian wax? my mom is an aesthetician (sp?)... make up, massages, waxing, and facials. but she tells me some stories. but just be relaxed, make sure you go after your time of the month. your skin is most sensitive before you're expecting it. and shower. no one wants to wax someone smelly. no offense... but it doesn't hurt. and ask to relieve pain or redness by putting tea tree oil on it afterwards. when my mom waxes my brows, they're hardcore sensitive, she puts oil over the waxed are and applies pressure. it will sooth your skin so it doesn't itch or get red. but just be relaxed and calm! it'll be over with in no time. just think of the benefits.
About how much does it cost to get a Brazilian wax?
I believe it costs anywhere from $40 and up(I get mine for $45). If your thinking of getting it done, make sure you go to a clean place. A bad experience may discourage you from having a Brazilian wax in the future and cause you problems from skin infections and ingrown hairs. I think It is best to choose a beauty salon from a word of mouth recommendation or a salon with a good reputation. As far as the pain goes, its not way too bad, but its not the best feeling in the world. Some areas are a lot more sensitive than others because the skin is thinner.Try to engage in conversation with your beautician during a brazilian wax session as this will help you relax and keep your mind off the waxing. Some places actually sell a numbing cream that you can use before you come in. I'm not too sure if it works, but guess i its worth a shot if you can't really take the pain of waxing well. The results from a Brazilian wax may last between 3 to 6 weeks depending on your hair regrowth rate. The more often you go, less hair grows back.
Can you get big spots like boils after having brazilian wax sebaceous cyst is actually the term you are looking for - it is an ingrown hair caught inside a a hard ball of sebum in a hair follicle. They tend to happen along the panty line where the elastic rubs against the skin. Get a doctor to lance it. he will then put you on antibiotics
When you get a brazilian wax, do they wax your
When you get a brazilian wax, do they wax your rear, too?
Yes they do wax the rear. But to be honest, it doesn't hurt that bad! They will probably lift your legs up and do it that way. I've heard that some places even make u turn around bent over. I would be wayy too uncomfortable with that.
My best friend has asked me to give her a Brazilian wax?
That's totally excellent. You should definitely do this and have her reciprocate. Leave a landing strip though! Having no body hair is great. Just remember to shave after the wax so you get rid of the dead outer layer of skin so you stay smooth
Is it safe to do a Brazilian wax on yourself with Veet Bikini Strips? yes so nooooo.... you just cant pull it the way it needs to be done so get a friend to do it or go to the beauticians,wear a thong and they will take all the hair that is showing and also a thong got nice guideline shape to use and have it done they do it really fast so you hardly feel it,and doesnt cost much...i had to get in a bath to melt the wax and pull of the strips lol!
What is a good product to remove the hair down there. I dont really like the brazilian wax idea? I just use Veet waxing strips to do mine cut them in to little strips warm them up in your hands peel apart rub down on your area hold skin tight and pull in the opposite direction of hair growth to get the best result! 1st time I done it I was sore but after the 3rd 4th and 5th etc time you get used to it like plucking your eyebrows.. just wax it all of your bf will love it.... nothing gets in the way lol good luck misses
Do you need to be 18 to get a Brazilian wax?
You should tell them you are under 18 and see what they tell you. Different states have different rules. They may ask one of your parents to come in with you.
Can they put you to sleep while you get a brazilian wax?
No they can't...but you take precautions and prepare for a less painful experience! Alot of things affect pain: if your hairs are too long, and going right before your period. Your highest pain tolerance is one week after your period. You can even take an anti-inflammatory like Advil beforehand. From personal experience, I've had mostly good experiences with brazilian, and only one bad one b/c my hairs were way too long. However, there are better places and methods than others. I discovered a waxing haven called European Wax Center. However, there are not too many locations (all in Florida). If you visit their website & get to know their method of applying "cold" and FLEXIBLE wax (or European wax), go somewhere where they do this. My results are super consistent, I am never red down there after wards. (Uni-K wax is alright, but their cold wax is not that flexible). Stay away from places that use hot wax and strips, this is so old-school and WAY too painful compared to cold wax where they just pull the wax off when it hardens. Using the "colder" wax results in the wax grabbing more hair at a time, compared to hot wax where they go over and over the same spot resulting in red skin. Good luck finding a place, you'll be fine, it is so worth it and I actually look forward to my appointments, I have one tomorrow! :)
Have any fat girls ever gotten a Brazilian wax, or esthetians ever give one?
It's got nothing to do with size. I was also reading in this month's Glamour that the average woman is 5'4" tall and 165 pounds, which qualifies as big. And that's the "average" woman, so you're not alone there. Look around you in the supermarket, at work and just around. *Most* women today are sized 12 and over! I have a good friend who is a sized 22 and proud of it - she's a big girl who comes from a family of big women and she doesn't see it as an issue. She tans regularly, gets waxed regularly and recently got a butterfly tattooed on her bikini line. I have friends that are estheticians, and they're just like doctors. They're concentrating on what they're doing (hair, wax, nails, whatever) as opposed to checking you out and/or judging.
Is it normal to bleed a little bit after a brazilian wax? yes it is OK as long is not to much bleeding.and the best thing to use after waxing try aloe Vera gel with ladocane if you have pain if not the aloe Vera will do it.
Is a Brazilian wax waxing your Private area, or a whole body wax?
removing all hair in the genital region, most places give you the option of keeping a small strip or skipping the buttock area. but its not a full body wax... a body wax is called a "full body wax" and usually runs a few hundred bucks, depending on the place and product used.
Is a second person needed to do a brazilian wax?
No, a second person is not needed when getting a brazilian wax. Just the beautician and yourself. Just close your eyes and pretend you're at your gyn. I've a very strong threhold on pain even i find it a little too painful for my comfort but then it is trully worth it. Smooth as a baby bottom. Cos you have to do it when it started to grow. But I like brazilian wax. It makes me feel very clean there you know. I'll have it done for a few months, grow them back for a few months then have it done again. Depends on my mood. Hope this help.
Is it general practise to have underwear on or off when getting a brazilian wax? You leave your underwear on and the therapist adjusts it as necessary to get into all ur nooks and crannies! In all honesty u'd be as well with it off as they must see pretty much everything anyway, but they think its more dignified if u have it on!
How is a Brazilian bikini wax done? They take it all off, all of the hair from the front to the back, beaning if you have hair in/on your rear they take that too. You are usually asked to remove your clothes from the waist down. Some women aren't comfortable with this so you can keep them on if you prefer. The fact is, underwear needs to be moved all the way over to do the job correctly, so you'll end up pretty exposed anyway. The Brazilian Bikini Wax usually requires your active participation positioning you body so the esthetician can remove your hair. The esthetician applies warm wax to a small section of your skin. A smooth fabric strip is placed over waxed area and rrrrrip. The hair is removed by a brisk tug. This procedure is continued until the shape you prefer is created or your pubic area is hair-free. Any remaining hair's are plucked with tweezer's prior to applying an ointment to the newly waxed area to smoothe any irritation. Does it hurt? This service is not as painful as one would expect, using a hard wax instead of a soft wax reduces the discomfort by 70%.
I went for a brazilian wax today is it possible to have a burned labia When she applied the way it was too hot?
yep... You should contact the location and inform them of the incident. Maybe they need to re-evaluate the person's technique so this doesn't happen to anyone else. In the mean time, stick with cotton panties/avoid thongs, use gentle soaps cleanser like Cetaphil to clean the area without irritation. I don't recommend ice on the area, just a cold pack or compress. Take an Ibuprofen for pain and inflammation. Make sure you keep an eye out for possible sides of infection.
Can I get a spray on tan directly following a brazilian wax? Whooo ya not the best idea. Can you wait at least 48 hours? I would give the skin time to heal, spray can clog the pores and cause your sking to be very irritated. I would recommend coochie cream you can google it and get it its awesome for irratation. Use it once in the shower each time after the wax and your good to go.
Do people in Brazil do Brazilian wax?
Well, some do, but I believe we don't do it more than in other countries, and it's not called "Brazilian wax". I believe they chose that name because foreigners associate "Brazil" with sex and promiscuity.
Does it really matter who does your brazilian wax if u take the whole thing off? it's all in each persons technique. you want someone fast with the ripping, and soothing lavender oil after. less favorable would be the one that doesn't get a good grip and keeps slipping then with a rough washcloth rubs alcohol on your super sensitive snatch. it took me a few tries to find my grrl and she'll have to be cold and dead in the ground for me to stop seeing her. happy hunting!!
When spas say a brazilian wax costs $80 and up. what determines the and up?
The and up refers to the peri-anal area. The little spot that is between the ...... front and your rear? Yeah, no offense to any underagers.... It just means that you can have a basic brazilian that does all of the visible hair in the front, and on your labia (lips?). Or, you can go all the way and get everything taken off. Hope I helped!
Is it possible to get a brazilian wax when your hair is less than 1/2 inch long? Not likely. There has to be something there for the was to grab or it won't work. When you go, the person doing it will tell you if it's long enough or not. Good Luck.
What are the long term effects of a brazilian wax?
With all waxing, the regrowth is softer and finer than is achived with shaving (no stubble!) The skin is held taught while the wax is applied and removed but is not streched by the process. The only possible problem would be ingrown hairs- the same as on your underarm or leg, but unless you are prone to them they are unusual on the pubic area.
Where would i go to get a brazilian bikini wax? at a nail salon? or a hairdressing salon?
Most definitely go to a reputable, and upscale day spa if it is within your budget to do so. Most will have well trained, and experienced esthesticians who will perform the waxing services for you. Plus, its a great environment - quite relaxing, which helps when getting a Brazilian! Sure, you can go to a hair salon too. But at a nail salon? Such as a 'discount' salon (those strip mall places that charge like $25 or less for a full set. I don't know if this one does waxing or not, but Regal Nails in Walmart is a great example of a 'discount' nail salon). I would not suggest going to one of those places for anything - not for waxing, or for nails either, because the vast majority of the time the person performing these services is untrained, has little experience, and in many cases, they are unlicensed as well (Not all, but in many states, a license is required to perform any type of body waxing). Thus, they are typically not qualified to do the job. In addition to that, these salons are well known to be quite filthy in terms of bacteria, and germs which can be very harmful, even dangerous, to your health. This fact has been well documented over the past few years, and more and more are being heavily fined, and even shut down because of these things. Avoid this type of salon. They may be cheap, and save you a few bucks, but seriously, isn't your health and well-being much more important to you than the possibility of saving a few bucks? But hey, its your body, so where you choose to go is your choice. This is only my opinion.
My skin was torn during a brazilian bikini wax...what now? You'll likely be ok. Since the wound is in a moist area, it may take a little longer to heal than something else like a cut on your arm. I've never heard of people getting serious infections from a bikini wax place before so you should have nothing to worry about. Keep a close eye on it, take extra care cleaning it, and neosporin won't hurt it either. If you do that it shouldn't get infected.
I'm about 35 weeks preggo and i'm trying to figure out if i should get a brazilian wax or not? First of all "your man" should not be complaining.....a husband should be more than willing to pleasure his wife. Second blood flow to the vaginal area has increased....it may making waxing even more painful. The drop in blood pressure do to the discomfort could trigger early labor. This can also lead to a drop in sugar level.s A nice and neat little trim will do just fine. Third the LAST thing he should be thinking about after having his baby is sex. You need to allow your vagina to heal. You will also be heaving a discharge on and off for the 4-6 weeks following the delivery. If you want to keep him "turned on and interested" DO not have oral sex during this time. I assure you a man will NOT be turned on by a vagina that has a bloody discharge.
Discharging during a brazilian wax?!?!?
I know how you feel because i discharge a lot also but its some thing we see all the time. (i wax people for a living) and its no big deal to me anyway. she will wear gloves and not think about it because so many things can cause you to discharge when getting waxed. the perisher, the feeling of pulling out the hair, etc... so don't worrier about it and try to have fun.
Is it safe to use Brazilian wax during pregnancy?
Yes! its completey safe! i reccomend it just because its hard to shave down there b/c our big bellies are in the way! just make sure you trim the hair b4 you go to reduce the pain.
When you get a Brazilian Bikini Wax do you have to get Doggy Style for it? What do they do?
Some salons do the "in the butt" waxing included in the brazilian. Also check with your salon their definition of brazilian since some of them consider leaving a "landing strip" a brazilian where other places do an "all off" waxing which is also called a playboy in other salons. If you do the "in the butt" waxing just so you know, since the skin in that area is to tight - it doesn't hurt. But the position is on all fours so the technician can get in there and get it the hair out. And you might also want to make sure that you're clean before you go in...some people have toilet paper still in there and not know it.
Why does waxing (brazilian wax) make you darker than your actual skin color?
When you wax, you are causing a trauma to the skin, If your waxer is very rough or you have very sensitive skin, or if you get waxed to often, the skin will darken because it is "hurt". Stop waxing for a bit, and see if your skin lightens, If you do this then make sure in a week or so use a scrub very gently in the area so that the darker skin will slough off.
What's the average amount of wax strips used in a bikini wax?
Kinda hard to say - it depends on how hard your hair is to remove, if there are any problems with temperature of the wax, how big the strips are cut, how much hair there is to remove, how big of an area the hair is being removed from. I'd say maybe 6 - 8 strips for bikini line, somewhere around 20 for a brazilian. Just all depends on the waxer and the person being waxed.
Genital herpes and brazilian wax?
Well, I have my bikini area waxed and I had never given it a second thought - and I have genital herpes. It doesn't cause outbreaks for me or anything. I don't see why you should inform them you have genital herpes before they wax you - I never would and never have. Obviously I would cancel if I had an outbreak, but that is for my own comfort. People who get cold sores (oral herpes) don't inform their dentists, and don't tell their beautician before she waxes their upper lip - they would never see a need, and neither do I. They aren't at risk of catching genital herpes from you by touching you, because their genitals are not making contact with your genitals. And one in four women they treat has genital herpes, just like 8 in 10 a dentist sees have oral herpes. That is just the way it is. It doesn't matter at all.
I had my first brazilian wax on Friday and now Im peeling, like a sunburn, is this normal? Yes its normal. Its a defense mechanism of your body. Try a soft scrub on the area. That way you wont get ingrowns.
Itchiness after a brazilian wax?
It is prolly your skin. It is prolly just irritated. I would find a cream that helps itch. Cortozone would be good prolly. Since it is your first time your skin isn't used to it and it just got irritated. It should go away after you have it done a few more times..
Why do they call it a Brazilian wax??- Why Brazilian?? Brazilian bathing suits are cut extremely small. They are a cross between bikini's and thongs. The Brazilian wax allows one to sport a Brazilian bikini.
How do you get used to a brazilian wax? Don't shave it makes the hair stronger, you can trim. The first time is always more painful because the hair is thicker from shaving. Just keep going for the waxing you will see great results. NO pain NO gain :)
