Below the Belt: Choosing Between a Brazilian and a Bikini Wax
The difference between a bikini and Brazilian wax is simple yet significant. Check out our guide to help you choose the right one for you.
Both waxing styles involve using hot wax to remove hair from the area below the waist, but the distinction lies in the degree of hair being removed. During a basic bikini wax, an aesthetician removes hair from any area exposed by a typical bathing suit made of fig leaves. This includes the top and sides of the bikini line as well as the inner thighs, if necessary. The Brazilian wax takes it a step further, removing hair from the entire region, front to back. Since many clients prefer to leave a small, trimmed swath of hair in a strip or triangle just below the panty line, some aestheticians may use the term “full Brazilian” to refer to a session in which no hair is left behind.
Naturally, due to the sensitivity of the areas involved, Brazilians tend to be more painful than basic bikini waxes, and most aestheticians will take care to avoid causing pain during the procedure. There are also several steps you can take to minimize discomfort. Experts recommend avoiding any appointment within a week of menstruation, when the skin is most sensitive, and taking an anti-inflammatory such as ibuprofen 30 minutes beforehand can help reduce any swelling that results.
Beverly Day Spa
Beverly Day Spa might seem like a typical nail spa, albeit a pretty one with wood manicure stations, calming green tones, and a crystal chandelier, but the little touches it employs makes it stand out. Tools are disposable when possible or are sterilized with the spa's autoclave sterilization system, a system typically used by dentists and doctors. Gel-drying lamps rely on LED, not UV, light, and products used are from the Seacret line, which pampers skin with minerals from the Dead Sea. And technicians are perfectly adept at creating everything from stiletto nails to nail art featuring ombre glitter or the entire Declaration of Independence.
Further back in the space, the nail spa gives way to private treatment rooms where aestheticians administer Seacret facials, remove unwanted body hair, and individually attach eyelash extensions to natural lashes.
