When you hear the word facial you immediately think of your face right? Well think again, because the latest in pampering treatments takes the facial from your face to your bikini area. It may sound quite strange in theory but in reality it actually makes a lot of sense; our bikini area is just as (if not more) sensitive as the skin on our face so why not spend the time to treat it just as carefully? These treatments may have started out as a novelty or trend, but due to their results, more and more women are getting them done lately.
Much like regular facials, a bikini facial (sometimes called a “vajacial”) is meant to prevent or get rid of issues you may have on the area like ingrown hairs, bumps, hyper-pigmentation, razor burns, clogged pores and even acne; and it consists firstly of a proper cleansing of the area followed by a treatment that differs depending on the concern you wish to treat.
There’s a calming facial for irritated skin that uses a cooling mask to ease the inflammation and redness, there’s the glycolic facial which uses a peel to get rid of bacteria followed by removal of ingrown hairs and a mask and serum treatment to relieve the area, and lastly there’s the microderm facial that focuses on deeply exfoliating the skin to treats almost every issue all at once.
So if you’ve ever had a wax gone wrong at a not-so-great spa or simply have very sensitive or irritable skin, yet you still want to be hairless in your bikini area, these facials are the perfect solution for you because you can get them done right after your wax and leave with your desired look without the awful and long lasting “side-effects”.
