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.
Day-Lux Mobile Spa
The aestheticians at Day-Lux Mobile Spa help folks look their best with a menu of waxing, facials, and massage. The staffers ensure their waxing treatments are as comfortable as possible by using both hard and soft wax. They use soft wax to remove unwanted fuzz from larger areas—such as the legs and back—pulling it off with muslin strips, whereas they use hard wax to treat more sensitive areas—such as the bikini line and underarms. The hard wax attaches to the hair rather than the skin, and the aestheticians can quickly remove it without muslin strips. They also cater their massages to clients needs and preferences, using gentle Swedish strokes to relieve tension or the more intense deep-tissue kneads, which target chronic pain. Moving on to the face, the aestheticians work to cleanse and moisturize skin or tackle specific issues including acne and the signs of aging, which might manifest as fine lines or a disdain for boy bands.
