Getting a Brazilian Wax and What You Must Know

beachYou’ll undoubtedly have heard of Brazilian waxes. They involve getting rid of nearly all the unwanted hair from your genital area.

It differs from a bikini wax because more hair is removed. A bikini wax just removes hair which is visible when you’re wearing a bikini.

This particular type of waxing is most popular with women. However men are starting to get something similar done on their genital areas too. Salons are starting to offer the service for both sexes.

Brazilian waxing was started around 1987 and it slowly started to take root in places like the United States. Over the years, the same method is still used all over the world and is more popular than ever. It was an idea that was developed by seven Brazilian sisters who moved to New York. The sisters were known popularly in Brazil as the J. sisters. Their legacy since then has grown and their service is now being used internationally.

Epilator vs Wax – The Best Approach

legsTreatment using an epilator and waxing treatments are quite similar. They both involve the same method of removing hair – pulling it out. But which one is best? As with everything they both have their advantages and disadvantages. So neither is best overall. But they both excel in certain areas. Yes we know that’s a bit of a cop out answer but it’s the truth!

An Overview of Epilators

We’ve looked at waxing quite a bit on this site, but not epilators. Epilators are a hand held device which on first glance look like a normal shaver. However they don’t cut the hair, they pull it. They grasp several hairs at once and pull them up from the roots. This is better than shaving because the hair will take longer to regrow if it has to grow from the root, rather than the surface of the skin.

How Safe Is Laser Hair Removal?

questionThe short answer is yes. It is safe under the right conditions. Although as with everything there can be some risk involved. Whether the treatment is safe or not mostly comes down to who is performing the procedure, rather than the technology itself being safe.

The Only Permanent Form

Technically the only form of permanent hair removal, would be a treatment which completely stops the follicle from producing any hair.

Electrolysis can do this. However the problem with electrolysis is that it takes a while to complete a treatment and can be very painful.
