BRAZILIAN WAX

DO NOT FEAR

IF YOU HAVE NEVER GOTTEN A BRAZILIAN WAX BEFORE, AND YOU ARE CURIOUS ABOUT THE FIRST TIME, YOU'RE AT THE RIGHT PLACE.  WHAT IS A BRAZILIAN WAX?  BRAZILIAN WAXING INVOLVES THE REMOVAL OF HAIR RIGHT FROM THE BELLY BUTTON, DOWN TO THE FRONT, AND ALL THE WAY AROUND THE BACK.  KNOWN AS THE "BARE WAX", IT INCLUDES WAXING ON, AROUND, AND BEYOND THE BIKINI ZONE, LEAVING YOU HAIR FREE. 

BENEFITS OF A BRAZILIAN WAX

COMFORT YOU KNOW THE FEELING YOU GET RIGHT AFTER YOU SHAVE?  YOU AREN'T ITCHY YET, AND YOU FEEL CLEAN AND BARE.  IMAGINE MULTIPLYING THAT FEELING TIMES 10, BECAUSE THAT'S HOW GREAT A BRAZILIAN WAX LEAVES YOUR SKIN FEELING. 

IT BOOSTS CONFIDENCE IMAGINE WEARING MATCHING LACE UNDERWEAR.  YOU CAN'T HELP BUT FEEL SUPER SEXY AND CONFIDENT.  I CAN GUARANTEE YOU THAT A BRAZILIAN WAX WILL LEAVE YOU FEELING SO MUCH BETTER THAN EVEN YOUR SEXIEST LINGERIE. 

HAIR FREE LONGER  A SHAVE WILL GIVE YOU A MAXIMUM OF TWO DAYS, WHEREAS YOU CAN BE HAIR FREE FOR 3-4 WEEKS WITH A BRAZILIAN WAX.  IT WILL SAVE YOU SO MUCH GROOMING TIME. 

HAIR GROWTH BECOMES SPARSER AFTER A SHAVE HAIR GROWS OUT THICKER,  BECAUSE IT IS CUT AT SKIN LEVEL.  UNLIKE SHAVING, WAXING REMOVES HAIR FROM THE ROOT, ENSURING THAT THE HAIR REGROWTH IS THINNER AND SPARSER.

THERE IS NO NEED TO BE SHY.  ONE OF THE BIGGEST THINGS THAT BOTHER WOMEN BEFORE GETTING THEIR FIRST WAX IS THE IDEA OF SACRIFICING THEIR MODESTY IN FRONT OF A STRANGER.  BUT LET ME STATE THE OBVIOUS HERE...THE STRANGER IN QUESTION HAS SEEN IT ALL! 

HOW TO PREPARE FOR A BRAZILIAN WAX

LET YOUR HAIR GROW OUT TO THE RIGHT LENGTH  HAIR SHOULD BE ABOUT 1/4" LONG BEFORE WAXING.  DON'T WORRY IF IT IS LONGER, IT CAN BE TRIMMED AT YOUR APPOINTMENT. 

PICK THE RIGHT DATES  IT IS IMPORTANT TO PLAN AROUND YOUR MENSTRUAL CYCLE.  SKIN IS EXTRA SENSITIVE A COUPLE OF DAYS BEFORE/AFTER A PERIOD, SO IT IS BEST TO CHOOSE A DATE THAT IS BETWEEN 4 DAYS AFTER AND/OR A WEEK BEFORE YOUR PERIOD. 

DO NOT APPLY MOISTURIZER  APPLYING OILS OR LOTIONS WILL HAMPER THE WAX'S ABILITY TO ADHERE TO HAIR. 

INFORM SPECIALIST OF MEDICATIONS  ANY MEDICATIONS SUCH AS ANTIBIOTICS, ACCUTANE, OR TOPICAL CREAMS (RETIN-A) MAY NOT BE COMPATIBLE WITH WAX. 

WORKING OUT AFTER A BRAZILIAN WAX  NO, DO NOT WORKOUT AFTER WAXING.  WAIT AT LEAST 24 HOURS BEFORE USUAL WORKOUT ROUTINE. 

SHOWERING AFTER A BRAZILIAN WAX  YES, YOU CAN SHOWER WITH COOL WATER.  THIS IS DUE TO THE FACT HAIR FOLLICLES REMAIN OPEN AFTER A WAX.  IT IS IMPORTANT TO AVOID TOO MUCH MOISTURE.  COOL WATER HELPS SEAL HAIR FOLLICLES.

TANNING  A RECOMMENDED 24-48 HOUR WAIT AFTER WAXING.  THE FRESHLY WAXED SKIN IS SUSCEPTIBLE TO SUN DAMAGE IF EXPOSED TOO SOON. 

SEX  A RECOMMENDED 24-48 HOUR  WAIT AFTER WAXING.  THIS WILL ALLOW SKIN TO HEAL AND FOLLICLES TO CLOSE PREVENTING ANY FURTHER SKIN IRRITATION.

SERVICE ~ $55

ANTIOXIDANT GOJI

 Rich in antioxidants to help eliminate free radicals and damage to the skin.

SPOT DIMINISHING ALA

Spot Diminishing ALA treats acne prone skin to shrink oil glands and minimize colonies  of bacteria responsible for acne. Blue LED light with ALA penetrates the dermis to kill the bacteria that causes acne breakouts (P. acnes). The P. acnes bacteria can grow in the hair follicies and cause inflammation, which then blocks pores and turns into inflamed pimples. Also, it shrinks the sebaceous (oil-producing) glands of the skin. This reduces
acne by decreasing the amount of oil in each pore (acne bacteria thrives on oil). This provides a natural antiseptic with antifungal, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial roperties making it highly effective in treating wounds, acne and skin infections.

INTENSIVE AFTERCARE

VAJACIAL

LET ME EXPLAIN WHAT VAJACIAL MEANS: A VAJACIAL IS PERFORMED ON YOUR VULVA, NOT YOUR VAGINA.  IT FOCUSES ON THE BIKINI LINE & PUBIC MOUND (THE V-SHAPED AREA WHERE MOST OF YOUR PUBIC HAIR GROWS).

BASICS & BENEFITS:

AS WOMEN, OUR VAGINAS ARE KEPT HIDDEN AND COVERED MOST OF THE TIME.  WE'RE INCREDIBLY BUSY IN OUR EVERYDAY LIVES AND TEND TO NEGLECT THIS AREA.  FOR EXAMPLE, MOST WOMEN ADMIT TO RARELY MOISTURIZING (THEIR VAGINAS).  PLUS, WE'RE SO RUSHED, IT'S EASY TO QUICKLY SHAVE THUS DEVELOPING RAZOR BUMPS OR INGROWN HAIRS. BEYOND THE CONSEQUENCES OF A HAPHAZARD SHAVE, WAXING THE SKIN AROUND THE VAGINA IS PRONE TO OTHER PROBLEMS TOO.  BLACKHEADS BUILD UP FROM SWEAT, IRRITATION OCCURS FROM PANTY LINES, AND HORMONAL CHANGES CAN EVEN CAUSE HYPER-PIGMENTATION. A VAJACIAL IS A WAY TO HELP ALLEVIATE ALL OF THESE ISSUES.  A VAJACIAL EXFOLIATES DEAD SKIN, CLEANS OUT PORES, AND KILLS BACTERIA - ALL WHILE REINTRODUCING MOISTURE BACK INTO THE SKIN.

WHAT TO EXPECT:

  • TEA TREE ESSENTIAL OIL STEAM IS USED TO LOOSEN ANY BLOCKAGES, BLACKHEADS, BUMPS, AND INGROWN HAIRS FROM THE UPPER LAYER OF SKIN
  • AN EXTRACTION OF THE BLOCKAGES, INGROWN BUMPS, AND BLACKHEADS
  • A SOOTHING AND DETOXIFYING MUD MASK THAT FURTHER RELIEVES THE SKIN OF DEEP, EMBEDDED ACNE AND CYSTS.  THE MUD MASK MAY ALSO RELIEVE ANY REDNESS CAUSED FROM THE EXTRACTIONS AND SOOTHES SKIN.
  • A HIGH-FREQUENCY GLASS PROBE (WHICH LOOKS LIKE A WAND) ZAPS REMAINING BACTERIA ON THE SKIN AND PREVENTS FUTURE INGROWN HAIRS.  THE TOOLS EMITS AN ELECTRICAL CURRENT THAT PRODUCES OXYGEN AND PUSHED IT DEEP INTO THE SKIN'S PORES KILLING BACTERIA

KEEP IN MIND THAT A VAJACIAL WILL ONLY BE PERFORMED ON BARE SKIN WHERE THE HAIR HAS BEEN REMOVED.
