When it comes to massage therapy centers, many Americans often think of massages for pain and stress relief. Considering up to 92% of Americans agree that massage is great for pain relief, many clients also choose to visit massage therapy centers for skin care.
Aside from facials, waxing is one of the most popular reasons why Americans choose to visit spas for professional skin care. In fact, the Brazilian wax has been and still is the most popular type of waxing in the United States. But what exactly is a Brazilian wax and what can you expect from the experience?
Brazilian Waxing: What Is It?
Many Americans are familiar with the traditional bikini wax, which consists of a removing a certain amount of hair from the mons pubis. However, at the end of the wax, a decent amount of hair is still present.
A Brazilian wax, on the other hand, completely removes all hair from the mons pubis. Known as extreme grooming by some, the client who receives a Brazilian wax will be completely bare.
Is Brazilian Waxing Painful?
The waxing process will never truly be a comfortable experience. However, there are ways you can help to improve the waxing process to make it go more smoothly.
Consider trimming the hair on your mons pubis to within a quarter of an inch, but no shorter. The longer the hair, the more painful the wax. But the shorter the hair, the more difficult it will be to remove it. Additionally, consider taking an over-the-counter pain reliever to reduce the pain.
What Happens During The Wax?
You can discuss with your aesthetician or waxer how you’d ultimately like your wax. However, it’s essential you have this discussion before the waxing begins so there’s no miscommunication.
Next, you’ll lay back with your legs apart. Your waxer will apply the wax with a wooden stick on a specific area. They will then hold the skin taut, smooth a cloth over the area, and then pull the cloth off quickly. The process will continue until all the hair you’d like removed is gone.
The waxing process may sting, but when it’s done by a professional you can be sure you’re in good hands. For more information on waxing, skin care, and massage, contact Deep Muscle Therapy Center today.
