Brazilian Bikini Wax with finest wax from Europe

  • No strips required for wax application.
  • Not considered to be hot wax — but warm, comfortable,  skin-friendly.            
  • Safer due to a lower temperature that is close to natural skin temperature.
  • Technologically surpassing other waxes on the market.
  • Used by more than 68% of the huge and varied wax market in  France.
  • Less sticky and messy than traditional waxes, increasing efficiency.
  • Quick clean up with accessory products.
  • Anti-irritant ingredients in the wax help to soothe the skin.

Ingrown Hair Concerns

  • Genetics – Some clients are prone to ingrown hairs due to their genetic make up.  The esthetician/technician should be consulted in regards to the best follow-up care for their client.  This may include some type of exfoliation treatment.
  • Esthetician/Technician – The esthetician/technician must be careful to remove the wax in the opposite direction of the hair growth while pulling the strip very close to the skin surface. If the strip is removed in an incorrect direction, or is pulled up instead of close to the skin, the client’s hair may be more prone to ingrown problems. This is not an issue with B.B. Wax treatments as we use a more up-to-date technique that does not require strips. The new method is gentler on the skin, more effective at hair removal and less prone to causing ingrown hair.
  • Client Error – The client must avoid tight clothing after waxing, especially in the waxed areas.  Tight clothing may result in irritation and ingrown hairs.  The client should, after 24-48 hours, use some type of exfoliating product to keep dead skin build up from accumulating in the areas that tend to become ingrown, i.e. bikini, upper thighs, underarms, back of neck, calves, etc.
  • Weakened Hair – As the client continues with waxing, the hair will begin to weaken and thin.  This may produce a temporary tendency to ingrown hairs.  The client should continue to use their exfoliating products and procedures as recommended by their esthetician/technician.
