To anesthetize or not?

As a rule, the Brazilian epilation is carried out without anesthesia though many clients in responses note existence of pain as the main minus of a method.

Performance technique

Procedure doesn't suit the constraining. At its carrying out it is necessary to sit in a chair couch with widely moved apart feet (so-called "a frog pose"). Leather of an intimate zone is processed the special degreasing lotion and powdered talc or the special powder intended for wax depilation. Use of these means helps to take better hairs and protects an integument from grazes and burns.

! Depilation can be carried out in two ways: with use of hot wax or special ready wax strips which put to skin and tear off together with hairs. Professionals prefer hot wax as influence of heat promotes relaxation of muscles and expansion of a time. As a result hair are easier taken from follicles, skin is less injured, and pain is reduced.

Wax is warmed previously in a voskoplava up to the necessary temperature. The structure has to envelop well hairs and thus not burn gentle skin of a crotch. The warmed-up structure is applied on the processed surface in the direction of growth of hair so that edges of wax were quite thick: in it a case will easier delete the stiffened mix. Other way: from above on wax weight impose a strip of fabric or special dense paper and smooth

The wax structure is broken the sharp movement in the direction against growth of hair. At the correct warming up and drawing means he manages to be removed together with hairs at one time. On a depilirovanny site emergence of "bloody dew" — the droplets of blood which are allocated from hair follicles is possible. It is quite normal as the sharp vyryvaniye of hair with a root injures the vessel feeding a bulb that is followed by release of blood on a skin surface.

The remained single hairs delete with tweezers. After procedure apply special gel with the cooling, calming and healing properties on the processed area. It promotes removal of pain and irritation.

Generally all procedure lasts of 30 minutes till 2 o'clock. Duration of a session depends on the type of hair, their density chosen like design. Again appearing hairs happen softer and thin. The following epilation is done approximately in a month.

Bikini design

Modern cosmetology salons offer a set of options of the Brazilian epilation. It is possible to make the deep bikini assuming full removal of hair, or classical Brazilian design with preservation of a narrow strip.

The increasing popularity creation of various intimate hairstyles in the form of a butterfly finds, crowns, fir-trees, etc. The master does previously a drawing contour according to the sketch or a cliche then hot wax depilates superfluous and corrects a drawing form cuticle scissors and tweezers. After procedure leather is processed the calming structure. Bikini design remains till 15-20 days, then procedure should be repeated.

Independent carrying out epilation

Saloon procedure suits not all. Usual shyness becomes the most frequent cause of failure from intimate depilation. The optimum decision for such cases is carrying out the Brazilian epilation in house conditions. Of course, intimate hairstyles won't manage to be created, but independent removal of hair – the purpose quite achievable.

Brazilian epilation The Brazilian epilation can be conducted independently

Due to the lack of experience in the sphere of depilation emergence of pain is possible. Therefore it is previously possible to take an anesthetic medicine.

Wax is warmed in china and accurately applied on hairs in a bikini zone. After hardening the wax strip is deleted with the sharp movement together with hairs. The moment of breaking of wax shouldn't be extended: it will strengthen pain, besides the part of hair will remain. After depilation apply the cooling or calming gel on the processed zone. With reddening and irritation cosmetics perfectly cope with a camomile or a calendula.

Once a month is also enough to carry out house procedure. In intervals between sessions the growing hairs can be deleted with hair removal cream.

I decided to look on the Internet other ways and I found reviews of the Brazilian epilation. That it will be necessary to delete all vegetation, at first frightened a little, but I was solved. Hardly I endured the first session. Mentally I swore to myself not to come back to salon any more. But when reddening and irritation took place and I saw result, decided to continue. By the way, painfully only for the first time. The following sessions can quite be suffered, But result excellent: the whole month skin smooth and pure" — Elena, 32.
