It can’t run. It can’t hide. If you have any fuzz down below, the Brazilian is coming to get it. And we mean all of it.
From the front to the back and everywhere in between, this treatment will leave your bikini area wearing nothing but its birthday suit.
Expect a regular bikini wax, only with a little extra…zeal. The therapist will ask you to lie on a treatment bed in order to get better access to the area. The wax will be applied via a wooden waxing stick and spread onto your skin in small areas. Then a paper or cloth strip is smoothed on, allowed to cool for a moment, and ripped off in the opposite direction to your hair growth, taking the wax and your hair with it. This is repeated until all of the area has been covered (or should we say, uncovered). If you like to have a little something there, you can ask your therapist to leave a "landing strip."
Some women do it for aesthetic reasons and some do it for hygiene, but very few do it for fun. Waxing down there rates high on the ouch-meter, so if you have a low threshold for pain, pop an Advil or consider another hair-removal treatment.
That said, there are benefits. Because hair is pulled out from the root, it will only grow back after two to eight weeks. And the more you do it, the longer it takes for hair to grow back in.
