Brazilian and Bikini Waxing Techniques for DIY

Posted by editor On March - 22 - 2009

If you don’t feel comfortable to go to a beauty salon to get that private part of you wax then you can try to watch this demo and try to do it yourself:

The best wax I find very comfortable is cirepil wax, it’s a wax that doesn’t require linen strip because it will get hard and you can pull out the wax out and dismiss it, without having to cut strip of linen.here’s what I meant:

For the DIY:
1. This how-to video might help (almost the same technique with cirepil wax or non-cirepil/wax+linen):

2. Make sure you work from inside out pulling the hair in the reverse direction of hair growth
3. Make sure you pull the skin tight no bending so it will cause less pain and achieve cleaner and smoother result.
4. Of course you need to prepare all the things yourself, make sure the wax is warm at a correct temperature, prepare the linen/denim strip if it is require, have wooden spatula, have oil, powder and lotion as well as towel and disposable napkins.
5. Make sure you do powdering before wax to have avoid skin irritation.
6. Make sure you don’t take hot shower after waxing for 24 – 48 hours, no sun and no solar.

If you are not a DIY type here’s some tips:

1. Find a clean salon, this is important because sometimes waxing of private area may cause some bleeding (from pulling off the hair or skin is just too thin so abrasive wax can create skin irritation or bleeding)
2. Find a soothing room/waxing environment because you don’t want to be tense, believe me the experience itself is painful and enough tense already so you want to search for a room with a soothing music and ambiance (no bright light) and perhaps choose a lady to assist you (a lady would understand and I suppose will be gentler)
3. Make sure you wash yourself (clean thoroughly the area you’re about to get wax) before coming to the salon or spa place of your choice.
4. Don’t forget you need to have a good hair length so if you want to do this to further prepare yourself you can cut it to be a quarter of an inch long otherwise the esthetician can do this for you as well.
5. Relax your self.
6. don’t take hot shower after waxing for at least 24 – 48 hours and don’t do sun bathing and solar right after waxing.

You can make the wax yourself too if you preferred all you need is sugar, water and lemon juice.
With the sugar wax based it will have less skin irritation because it’s gentler for the skin. Try to watch this waxing video for those of you like to do sugaring wax technique.

Laser Hair Removal Consequences – Brazilian Waxing

Posted by editor On May - 18 - 2008
All women acknowledge good things when it come to “hairless fashion trend” that become more popular these days in our society, especially when spring/summer arrives. Brazilian wax is quite a regular, at least for me and among my female friends, but when you have to do it every so often sometimes kinda wonder of that laser option that promise to have it permanently remove (so don’t have to bother with regular waxing). As I researched more with the topic I came across this article (that really makes me stick with the regular waxing icon smile option):

Popularized in an episode of Sex in the City, it involves removing all body hair.

At Spa Radiance, the hairless look is growing in popularity. Angelina Umansky, owner, Spa Radiance: “This year has been the biggest year for Brazilian waxing ever at the Spa.”

Twenty-year-old Stella Chung is a regular client. Stella Chung, hair waxing client: “I want to make sure it’s clean there, and for hygiene issues, too.

” What about the pain? Angelina Umansky, owner, Spa Radiance: “We don’t use a lot of numbing creams because they take awhile to kick in. But we do small patches.”

Stella Chung, hair waxing client: “Initially, when I first got it done, of course it hurt. It’s more like a stinging feeling. But it’s really fast and quick. But when you get it done everything, three weeks or not, you get used to it.” And Stella says her partners prefer it, too.

Stella Chung, hair waxing client: “Usually, the partners that I’m with, they prefer the bare because I think it’s a whole trend thing.”

In fact, for an entire generation, hairless is becoming the new standard of beauty. For almost any female between 15 and 25, the message seems to be bare is better.

Male, name withheld: “It shows they just try to take care of their bodies. You know, like it portrays them more like femininity when it’s not so, when it’s hairy.”

Male, name withheld: “I’m just not attracted to hair, I guess. I don’t know. It’s not something that is appealing.”

Female, name withheld: “I know a lot of guys prefer it, and I know a lot of guys joke about women not being hairless in certain areas, and it is kind of weird. So I think there are social pressures to conform to being more hairless these days, for sure.Even in high school – that’s where it started, and it’s just getting to the point where most women are.”

There are real concerns here. First, this body hair has lots of functions, including providing protection and lubrication for tender tissues. And while shaving or waxing all your body hair is one thing, many women are turning to lasers for hair removal. But with any laser, there is the potential for burns and serious infections, like triggering a herpes outbreak.

For Berkeley physician Christine Brozowski, the demand for total laser hair removal is skyrocketing.

Christine Brozowski, M.D., physician and laser specialist: “It’s just a very popular thing.” She cautions in untrained hands, patients could be harmed.

Christine Brozowski, M.D., physician and laser specialist: “I think that laser procedures in general are very safe. However, when used not in the proper hands there is a greater chance of having a complication such as hyper, hypo pigmentation (those are changes in the skin color), or infection, or burning.”

She routinely pre-treats a lot of patients with an antiviral medication to prevent a herpes outbreak. Laser hair removal requires several treatments, six weeks apart to destroy the hair follicles during their growth cycle.

That leads to one more caution: Christine Brozowski, M.D., physician and laser specialist: “Your hair is not going to grow back. So you need to know that. It’s not a six-week thing. It’s that your hair is not going to grow back.”

Even more than tattoos or piercing, this is one fashion trend you may be stuck with for life.

Further complicating the problem is that many teens and young adults are getting treated at spas or salons – not at dermatologist’s office. So the risk of infection and burns is far greater.
