As part of the educational series, tips and advice is afforded to the public in order to make their waxing experiences more rewarding. The series is available by clicking Waxing Tips. Part one of the educational series approaches the differences between Brazilian waxing and bikini waxing, and is discussed below:

As summer approaches, people’s thoughts tend to turn to the upcoming beach season. If the thought of excess hair peeking out from under your bikini line makes you want to pull your beach towel over your head, it is time to consider hair removal options. We are always looking for a better way to rid ourselves of that embarrassing hair for as long as possible. Temporary hair removal solutions such as shaving and depilatory creams require the most frequent re-occurring maintenance and continued use. For something that lasts longer, waxing may be the best choice.

Once you have decided to opt for waxing, the next thing to consider is how much hair you want removed. The main difference between bikini waxes and Brazilian waxes is the amount of hair that is eliminated. You should choose whatever look you are most comfortable with, whether it is a natural look, a more bare look, or something in the middle. It is also important to consider your own level of comfort when it comes to baring it all in front of your aesthetician.
The degree of hair removal will depend upon your preference, which may also include trimming the length of any remaining hair. A natural bikini wax involves the removal of any hair that could be seen while you are wearing a bikini bottom, and also from the upper thigh and buttocks. A simple bikini wax only removes hair that grows outside of the line of your bikini bottoms, and can often be done with your panties on.

For the brave who want a more hairless appearance, the Brazilian wax is a perfect choice. A full Brazilian wax removes the hair from south of the belly button and north of the thighs, and everything to and from the front and back. Ordinarily, a strip of hair is left in the front (aka “the landing strip”), but some prefer to have everything removed. This type of bikini wax is also known as a “Hollywood” wax or “Sphynx” bare wax, named after the hairless breed of cat. You will need to be naked from the waist down and move into various positions during a full Brazilian wax service. This is so the aesthetician can access all the hair in all the target areas. If the idea of this is uncomfortable to you, it may be better to instead opt for a more natural bikini wax. However, our aestheticians have seen more naked bodies than most doctors and are trained to make everyone feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible in any stage of undress and position.

Once you have decided to make your first waxing appointment, you will want to prepare in advance to minimize the sting and end up with the best results. To prepare for your first waxing experience, we recommend taking half an Aspirin to dull any first time sting. You will also want to be stone cold sober when getting waxed, as alcohol brings blood to the surface of the skin (flushed look); which increases the sensitivity of the area. Other than that, you are ready to go. After care is always outlined with your aesthetician after your service. We recommend you follow all after care recommendations in order to get the best results.
The benefits of waxing outweigh the discomfort for most people, or the practice would not have endured the test of time. First, it can last 3 to 6 weeks for hair to return, which is much longer than any other temporary hair removal method. Also, the hair that does grow back will grow in more fine and lighter over time than originally and that’s if it comes back at all. One theory on why this happens is that the process of pulling the hair out weakens the follicle root system, making it difficult for the hair to grow back. Continued regular waxing means that there will be fewer hairs to remove over time.
