Ladies and gentlemen, a Brazilian wax is not a joke! Just imagine, a technician using soft wax on your private area and ripping off all the hair down there. Now, we bet most of you are contemplating whether or not to do it don’t worry. Beauty Insider Malaysia has put together all the information you need to know about getting Brazilian waxing in Malaysia. 

What Is Brazilian Waxing? 

Brazilian waxing is a waxing process which removes the hair along your bikini bottom using a wax. Unlike normal bikini waxing, Brazilian waxing removes more hair including the hair along the vagina lips, perineum and anus (TMI Alert!). Unlike shaving and sugaring, waxing gives a more clean finish. We would highly recommend you try it at least once in your life.

What Are The Differences Between Waxing & Shaving?

The main difference is that waxing removes hair from the root whereas shaving just trims the hair on the surface. Plus, unlike shaving, waxing offers more lasting results. With proper maintenance, a waxing result can last up to a month. Also, waxing is much more permanent than with regular treatment and over time it thins the hair so less grows back. And good wax exfoliates the skin as well, leaving the waxed area feeling silky smooth.

What Are The Processes of Brazilian Waxing?

  1. First, the esthetician will apply talcum powder to the skin to keep the hot wax from sticking to the skin.
  2. Then he/she will dip a wooden waxing stick into a hot pot of wax and evenly spread it onto your skin covering your hair. This is done in the direction of your hair growth.
  3. Then the esthetician will apply a strip of cloth over the still-warm wax and press it firmly in order for the cloth hair and wax to adhere to one another
  4. When the wax has cooled, the esthetician will pull the strip off in the opposite direction of your hair growth. If it’s too painful, inform your esthetician.
  5. Once the waxing is complete, the esthetician will tweeze off stray hairs.
  6. Finally, the esthetician may spread soothing lotion over the waxed areas for a calming effect.

** Do note: Process varies among different waxing salons

How Long Does the Brazilian Waxing Take?

Well, though the treatment only lasts for 15 – 30 minutes, it is gonna be the longest 15-30 minutes of your life. The duration of the waxing process also depends on the density of your hair growth. For first-timers, it would take around 30 – 35 minutes; give or take. The more cooperative you are, the faster you can get done with it!

Who Should Go For Brazilian Waxing?

Brazilian waxing is generally safe hence it is recommended for people of all ages and both genders. Anybody who feels uncomfortable with bushy hair down there can go for the treatment. Though some people say, bikini waxing is more suitable for younger people as their hair is finer and will be less painful to remove, anyone can get it done, regardless of age.

How Painful Is Brazilian Waxing? 

Beauty is pain, isn’t it? On that note, Brazilian waxing is painful but the pain level depends on the individual. While there are some who don’t experience pain as much when getting their VV waxed, some can feel like their skin is getting ripped off. The pain is there because waxing focuses on removing hair from the roots. But the pain only lasts for a while and stops immediately after the treatment is over.

Firstly, don’t worry about pain, in fact, don’t even think about it! Make sure to eat something an hour before your appointment. It is also good to exfoliate and scrub your skin the day before. But do not do anything on the day of your waxing appointment, don’t even wear lotion!!!

When Is The Best Time To Get Brazilian Waxing? 

Friends Reruns on Twitter: "PHOEBE: Was it not pain-free? MONICA: No, it  was painFUL! They should call it "Painzeen, now with a little wax."  http://t.co/SCkbqQcr16"

According to experts, waxing hurts more the week before your period, so it’s best to go in the week after your period. And if you’re pregnant, avoid waxing because your hormones are more sensitive so it will be more painful. Otherwise, it’s just about being comfortable. We know first-timers, would be very scared and shy (it’s part of the process) But once you manage to calm yourself, it will be a smooth process. 

How Often Should You Wax? 

If you’ve shaven recently, wait five days. And though the time does vary between waxes, depending on how quickly or coarsely the hair grows back. In general, it is best to wait around a month for your next wax job. Unless there is an emergency, like you got a new boyfriend or are about to go on vacation, then you can go for waxing ASAP!

What Are The Best Post-Wax Maintenance?

How to Stop Breakouts After Waxing

Although the pain subsides as soon as the waxing process is over, the area can remain sensitive and you need to be very gentle with it! Do not use any scrubs or harsh soaps on the waxed area for the next 48 hours and do not expose the area to direct sun for at least 24 hours. If you experience any redness or swelling, apply a small amount of cortisone cream from the drugstore. There will be bumps don’t squeeze or tweeze them. They will disappear in a few days.
