Bikini waxing is the removal of hair around the bikini line. This can be done using our soft mineral oil based wax or our blue hard wax. Product choice is determined based on clients allergies, as well as their hair type. This service provides minimal discomfort.
Pubic hair can be removed in a number of ways. At DreamLuxe we choosing waxing specifically for a number of reasons. One being, the hair is removed from the root, allowing it to grow back finer and more sparse. Our wax is tested on the forearm of your specialist before being applied to your skin to ensure proper temperature throughout your service. We apply an antiseptic cleaner to the area prior to waxing. Wax is applied with a disposable wooden spatula in the direction of hair growth. An epilating wax strip, about 2 inches (5.1 cm) wide and 4 inches (10 cm) long is applied to the top of the wax. The wax strips are pulled away against the direction of hair growth while keeping the skin taut. The strip is ideally pulled off as swiftly as possible.
If a person has never been waxed before, or has not been waxed for a long time, it may be necessary to trim the pubic hair using scissors or an electric razor prior to waxing. Please make sure this is done at home prior to your appointment. If the hair is too long to wax, we will need to send you home to trim it and reschedule your appointment accordingly. A patch test is recommended, usually on the upper thigh, to test for allergies or skin sensitivities to the ingredients in the wax.
The pubic area is one of the most sensitive areas in the body and during the procedure special attention must be paid to avoid irritation. Pain directly resulting from the procedure can be slight or severe and can continue from several seconds to several minutes. Some people experience less pain during subsequent treatments. It can be helpful to take a mild anti-inflammatory medication (such as ibuprofen) an hour or so before waxing to reduce potential pain from the waxing. An anti-septic cooling cream is applied at the end of your service to soothe your skin in just minutes. A bikini wax during pregnancy is generally more painful, due to increased sensitivity. The type of wax used for bikini lines at DreamLuxe is made from a mixture of soy and mineral oil. This allows us to provide you waxing services in the most sensitive areas with as minimal pain as possible.
Sometimes bumps or in-grown hairs can result from waxing. Discomfort following the procedure generally lasts two to five days or less. We recommend using a salt or sugar scrub to exfoliate the skin three times a week starting 48 hours after your wax services. Application of an anti-septic or soothing cream can help reduce inflammation. A gentle, unscented moisturizer is also recommended for use daily. Isolated hairs can be removed with tweezers. With repeated removal over time, pubic hair becomes weaker and grows more slowly, leading to easier removal with less pain and less frequent waxing.
