Facials were created as a soothing and rejuvenating experience that restores the skin on the face, leaving you with a healthy glow. While this doesn’t sound too out of the norm, estheticians have taken this popular treatment and adapted it to benefit your lady parts! The vajacial is exactly what it sounds like – a facial for your bikini area.
What is a Vajacial / What is a Bikini Facial?
A vajacial uses a lot of the same techniques as a regular facial but applied to the bikini/gluteal area. Much like a facial, it addresses various skin issues that can occur from a recent wax, sensitive skin, genetics etc. It is a non-invasive procedure that is completely topical – many clients have described it as a soothing and rejuvenating experience!
The treatment can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour and is not painful whatsoever.
What Can a Vajacial Help With?
A vajacial has become a post-wax staple for many women and men. Although waxing is one of the best ways to avoid ingrown hairs in the long-term, this unique treatment to the bikini area resurfaces and eliminates those pesky hairs as well. In addition to ingrown hairs, a vajacial can help eliminate or significantly reduce the following skin issues:
- Hyperpigmentation/Dark Spots
- Scarring/Stretch Marks
At most reputable salons that offer a vajacial, you will be provided with different options to treat specific skin issues. For those who are looking for a vajacial in Houston, Bare Necessities offers the following vajacial packages:
- “Bare Bottom Bikini Facial” – treating problematic skin issues on the gluteal area

Can I Do a DIY Vajacial?
While there are certainly products out there you can use to help soothe irritated skin in your bikini area, you will get the best and most long-lasting results from visiting a vajacial spa near you that offers this type of treatment regularly for clients. They will be able to assess your skin type and provide the best custom bikini facial for you!
How Do I Find a Vajacial Near Me?
A simple Google search for “find a vajacial near me” should be the first step to finding a spa near you that offers this unique procedure. You should visit their website or look at their menu of services to determine whether what they are advertising meets the proper description of a vajacial.
Additionally, It is so important to do your due diligence before deciding on a salon/spa to perform your beauty treatments, and even more sore when it comes to your bikini area. This is an extremely sensitive part of your body, and if not performed correctly or with proper sanitizing techniques, you could find yourself with very irritated skin. In the worst cases
Can You Get a Vajacial While Pregnant?
Yes! There is nothing invasive that occurs during a vajacial, and much like waxing, the topical products used are totally safe for a pregnant woman. For those with extremely sensitive skin, or skin that is not reacting well to pregnancy, we advise you to contact your doctor or esthetician to discuss your options.
Bikini facials while pregnant is a great way to relax and feel confident in your bikini area, especially before giving birth! It is recommended not to get a bikini facial too close to your due date, however, so plan to get one around a month before you are to give birth for the best results.
How Long Should I Wait After Waxing to Get a Bikini Facial?
Ideally, you should wait about 10 days after a bikini or Brazilian wax to receive a bikini facial. This amount of time allows the hair growth to form just beneath the skin so that any treatments received that target ingrown hairs can be most effective.
It is certainly a possibility to get a vajacial immediately post-wax, and you should always consult with your esthetician to see what they would recommend. Vajacials that target inflammation and redness are great to get right after a wax to soothe and calm the irritated skin. However, not all types of vajacials are best suited for recently-waxed skin, such as a Salicylic bikini facial. The harsher chemical can react poorly with the sensitive skin and result in further redness and/or inflammation.
