Brazilian Waxing

We at Palasa use top of the line wax for our Brazilian waxing sessions for maximum level of comfort.

What is a brazilian wax?
A Brazilian wax is a type of bikini wax. With a brazilian wax, the hair from the vulva (outer and inner labia), perineum, anus and buttocks is completely removed. A strip of pubic hair (in the shape of a strip or triangle) may be left on the front.

What types of brazilian waxes are there?
The most common types of brazilian waxes are the standard brazilian (or G-wax) and full brazilian (Hollywood). With a standard brazilian wax or G-wax, a small line or vertical strip of pubic hair is left above the vulva. This small line or vertical strip of pubic hair is commonly known as the ‘landing strip’. With a full brazilian wax or Hollywood wax (also known as ’sphynx’), the pubic hair is completely removed.

Hot tips on preparing for your brazilian wax session:
*Before your brazilian wax session, you should take a shower and wash your pubic area. This will allow you to be more comfortable during the brazilian wax session as your beautician will become very intimate with your pubic area.
*Try to schedule your brazilian wax session for a week after menstruation as the genital area is least sensitive.
*To make you feel less sensitive during your brazilian wax session, try to avoid caffeine, stress and nicotine. Be sure to have lots of sleep so that you can relax.

Hot tips after your brazilian wax session:

*Apply a hair inhibitor to slow the regrowth of hair. Hair inhibitors can last up to two months.
*Apply soothing lotion on your genital areas. Soothing lotion is usually contains aloe vera and chamomile.

*To avoid irritation of the skin, avoid for at least 24 hours after your brazilian wax session:

-heat sources, such as saunas, steam rooms, sun and heavy exercise
-exfoliating products such as AHAs and scrubs and loofas
-tight clothing

*Try to avoid hot baths/showers or sexual activity for 10 hours after a brazilian wax session as your powers are open and vulnerable to irritation and infection.
*Regular exfoliation (twice to three times per week) helps to remove dead skin and avoid ingrown hairs.
*Moisturize your genital areas with tea tree or lavender lotion after ever shower as this has a soothing healing and antibacterial effect.

The pain during a brazilian wax
The pain you may experience when the wax strip is removed varies between women. The pain can range from slight to severe and from several seconds to minutes. The most painful area is usually the top part of the genitals whereas the least painful is underneath the genitals and around the anus.The first brazilian wax session is usually the most painful one. If the pain is unbearable, you only need to tell your beautician that you need a little rest. You need not be embarrassed as your beautician will be understanding. Usually, the pain you experience during a brazilian wax feels less the more you have treatments as the hair can be pulled out easier. If you wish, you can apply topical anesthetics to lessen the pain.

The best time to have a brazilian wax is a week after menstruation as the genital area is least sensitive during this time. In contrast, the pain is likely to be greatest immediately before and during menstruation when the area is most sensitive.

To make you feel less sensitive during your brazilian wax session, try to avoid caffeine, stress and nicotine. Be sure to have lots of sleep so that you can relax on the day.
