Bikini Waxing Treatment
Bikini waxing is one of the most common waxing treatments out there. Most are eager to get this treatment just before a vacation, but all can benefit from a bikini wax remove hair from the bikini line anytime without the commitment of a full Brazilian wax.
It's important to note that a bikini wax and a Brazilian wax are not the same: A bikini wax is just a quick tidying of the hair around the bikini line. No hair is removed from the back, and just enough hair is removed so that it's not visible beyond the panty or bikini line. We offer a wide range of waxing and trimming services so if you're considering this or another waxing procedure, a full menu of our services can be found here.
Considering a bikini wax, but don't know what to expect? Here's some info about this waxing procedure.
What's the process?
The technician will ask you to remove all clothes from the waist down. Sometimes, underwear is revealing enough that it can stay on for a bikini wax, but it's recommended that you take it off to get the best result.
Hot wax is spread on the skin in the direction of hair growth, then a strip of fabric is pressed on and allowed to cool and solidify around the hairs. After cooling, the strip of cloth is quickly pulled off in the direction opposite to hair growth.
How should I prepare for a bikini wax?
It's vital that the hair is long enough so that the wax can grip it. Hair should be at least a quarter inch in length before a wax. Shaving should be avoided for at least 2 weeks prior to having a bikini wax procedure fine.
For those with a low pain tolerance or those who have never gotten waxed "down there", take ibuprofen or acetaminophen to minimize pain. By nature, waxing is a painful procedure but is less painful each time if maintained by coming back every 4-6 weeks.
A bikini wax commonly lasts about 4 weeks, but it can be shorter or longer depending on how long it takes the hair to grow back.
How can I take care of my bikini wax?
The technician will answer any specific questions about aftercare post-wax, so come ready with questions. Here are some general tips:
- Showering in hot water is not advised after a bikini waxing—bathe in lukewarm or even cold water for one to two days after the procedure to avoid irritating the skin.
- Avoid any other skin irritants for a few days after the procedure. This includes tight clothing, fragrances or irritating lotions, and excessive sweating from exercises.
- Exfoliate every other day to keep skin smooth. Dead skin can get into hair follicles and cause ingrown hairs, and exfoliating can prevent this from happening.
- Bumps and ingrown hairs can happen, but don't worry. A gentle shower scrub and cleansers that contain alpha hydroxy acid can cleanse and rejuvenate skin.
