The idea of a bikini wax is fascinating, right? If you’re a bikini wax virgin and are very curious about it, you should know that your thoughts and fears are not weird. Firstly, there are some waxing myths that we all have believed at some point. Now we know they’re not true. Regarding bikini waxing, here is a low-down of what every woman experiences before she gets it done for the first time.
- Hot wax in those areas!?
It sounds ridiculous when you think about it. Why would a rational woman pay money to have hot wax spread over her pubic region with the intent of uprooting the hair from its very roots? It sounds so painful. It would surprise you to know that it’s actually a very normal thought. At the end of the day, it boils down to personal choice. Many women take monthly appointments to get bikini-waxed without a second thought!
- How uncomfortable will it be to drop my panties in front of the beautician?
It’s actually not as awkward as you would think. These beauticians have seen everything- yes, everything! They probably perform one bikini wax every day. Of course, everyone feels a little uncomfortable the first few times. But with trusted beauticians, the comfort comes easily.
- What if I don’t want to get all of it waxed?
If this is one of the doubts in your mind, you’re in luck. Bikini waxing comes in different forms. Some women prefer to get the hair removed only up till the panty line. This is perfect in case of a beach holiday. On the other hand, others choose a G-string wax which removes all the hair from the front as well as the rear. It is important to understand your needs and to choose what you want to be done in tandem with the same.
- Will it bleed? How much will it hurt?
These are the real questions. The answer depends on one’s own skin sensitivity and endurance capacity. For some, even underarm waxing leads to bleeding pores but it heals in under a minute. Also, the aesthetician ensures that your individual skincare needs are considered before proceeding with the application. Thus, you don’t really need to worry about it being detrimental to your skin. The pain felt is different for different people and different regions of the body. Some sections get over in a painless flash while others leave a stinging sensation long enough to bring tears to your eyes.
- For how long will the redness remain? Will it feel different?
Again, this is pretty subjective. But what you can be assured of is that it is going to feel different. Suddenly, the area will be absolutely clean and hairless, and it might take a little while to get accustomed to it. The redness will subside soon enough on its own. Application of creams and other products to reduce the redness needs to be done with care because waxing leaves the skin exposed and pores open. A natural coolant like aloe vera is a good option. But in general, one should just wait it out. If the skin becomes very sore, going to a doctor is the best option.
It’s important to understand that inhibitions are natural, and you should not be afraid to ask all the questions in your mind before undergoing the procedure. What you need to think about is whether it is worth it for you or not.
