THERE’S A FIRST TIME FOR EVERYTHING: A Girl’s Guide To Waxing For The First Time!(Brazilian Waxing)

Brazilian Waxing NYC.First Time Brazilian Waxing

Summer is approaching, and you want your skin to be silky smooth and hairless for the season. You have already tried all types of depilation (shaving, depilatory cream, etc.) and now you may be wondering if it’s time you finally found the courage for waxing. Here is a little guide on how to get started.

What is waxing?

Waxing is a method of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root. New hairs will not grow back in the previously waxed area for four to eight weeks. Using wax to remove body hair can be an easy way to keep you neat and trim, while looking and feeling beautiful. Men and women alike have been using the process of waxing to achieve their own state of personal beauty for years. Wax can be used on virtually any part of your body where you wish to remove hair, such as the upper lip and face, arms and under arms, legs, and your bikini area. Many have never waxed out of fear of the pain it could cause them, but actually a lot of people who regularly wax say the pain is not that bad after couple treatments. You may find that waxing will actually keep the hair from growing back thicker and darker as it does when you shave.

How waxing is done?

So you finally found courage within yourself and decided to go for waxing. Now what to expect? First, if the hair is too long the specialist will trim it. Then wax is heated to allow it to be spread easily and evenly over the skin in the direction of hair growth, warm wax is applied to the waxing area with a wooden stick. The hair becomes embedded in the wax, which cools and firms up holding the hair. Next, cotton strips are placed over the wax. The wax is then quickly pulled off in the opposite direction of the hair growth, pulling the hairs out of the follicles along with dead skin cells. New hair growth in waxed areas is soft and fine. After repeated waxing, hair re-growth is less and less.
Typically, the process is all be over with pretty quickly – within 5 to 20 minutes (depending on the area waxed). As for the pain, it is very individual and depends on your personal threshold of sensitivity. You should, however, know that reports range from uncomfortable to very painful. The good news is that you’ll be given some soothing cream or lotion after, which should help.

Benefits:

  • Hair in the waxed areas does not grow back in four to eight weeks and when it does, it is soft and thin.
  • Hair is removed from the root rather than from surface, which does not create stubbles.
  • There are no chemicals involved and thus no reaction with waxing. At the most you will have a swollen area that is red for a few hours, but there’s little or no danger that you’ll be left with scars, sores or some other reaction.
  • Cost of waxing is minimal as compared to any of the permanent hair removal methods (e.g. laser hair removal or electrolysis).
  • And, of course you can also get some hairy designs on your body customized – the upcoming trend after tattoos.

Preparation Tips:

For those looking to wax for the very first time, there are a few body waxing tips that you should follow to help make your experience less traumatic. How your body reacts to waxing is entirely different than your neighbor, but these tips will help to minimize the pain and take care of your skin afterwards. By taking care of your skin before and after waxing you are sure to have a pleasant experience rather than dealing with pain and negative after effects.

  • Your hair length should have grown slightly longer than normal to allow the wax to bond to the hair for removal. Many women find it hard to let their hair grow in order to allow it the proper length to wax, but it should not take an extremely long amount of time for your hair to get slightly longer.
  • Be clean before your waxing treatment .Skin that has natural oils on it or even dirt will be harder to wax. By taking a hot shower or applying a warm cloth to the area that is to be waxed will help your skin’s pores open up and make it easier for the hair to be removed.
  • Using a body or face scrub in the shower will help remove any dead skin cells in the desired area as they may cause more pain when it comes time to waxing the hair.
  • There are many different types of numbing sprays to help with the discomfort of the waxing process. Some may find that taking a Tylenol or acetaminophen anywhere from 30-45 minutes before waxing also helps deal with any pain caused.
  • Some women may find that the skin is more sensitive around the time of their menstrual cycle. If this is the case, waxing should be scheduled earlier or later to avoid any unnecessary pain.
  • If acne is a problem, wait until the skin has healed before hair waxing to avoid further irritation.
  • If you choose a bikini wax, make sure it’s not a last-minute decision. Last-minute holidays might be spontaneous and fun but a last minute bikini wax will make you red and sore for the beach. Bikini waxing should be done at least 24 hours before you wear a bikini. Do not expose waxed area to sun for 24 hours to avoid darkening.

After the procedure:

  • Avoid wearing tight clothing over freshly waxed areas to minimize the risk of irritation and ingrown hairs.
  • After 24-48 hours, exfoliate the skin with a Loofah sponge to prevent the dead skin from accumulating.
  • You will not want to exercise the next day to avoid getting sweaty and having your pores become clogged with dirt and oils.
  • Do not try to pop the pimples you may see from waxing as this can spread bacteria on your skin and create more unwanted pimples.

Natural Products Ensure Natural Beauty at New York’s Dyanna Spa

As a top New York spa, we know how important it is to keep up our reputation and continue to bring the best products and services for nail care, waxing, facials and massages to all of our clients. That’s why when we found out studies have shown that beauty products such as body oils, body waxes, face-wipes and the like frequently use chemicals and synthetic materials to add a pleasant fragrance to their products, we realized that’s something we won’t stand for at Dyanna.

More often than not, the exact chemical ingredients included in these non-natural beauty products are not listed in detail on the product casing.  Users thereby remain unaware of the harmful side-effects which these products could potentially have on their skin. The pores that make up every inch of our body need to have constant contact with clean air in order to breathe properly and thereby retain their natural glow.  However, the toxic materials added to supply odor to many non-organic substances can actually block our pores and obstruct that clean supply of air from entering our skin.

At Dyanna Spa, we recognize that natural products are of utmost importance when dealing with skin-care.  Our entire selection of creams, moisturizers, oils and the like are carefully chosen to ensure that any treatment which your body receives at Dyanna Spa will leave you feeling rejuvenated and cleansed in every way.  From face-masks to foot creams, your skin will encounter only top-of-the-line all-natural ingredients, including herb extracts, vitamins from plants and minerals and fragrances emanating from fruit peels – allowing you to experience maximum health benefits after each spa visit!

Do you ever wonder how flower and plant extracts are converted into essential oils safe to use on skin?  The process is a long and carefully crafted one in which the exact location in a plant which contains the most highly concentrated mineral content will be extracted and distilled, using advanced steam or water distillation techniques.  The raw healthy materials that remain are then inserted into the lotion or cleanser that you apply onto your skin – thus allowing you to nurture your skin with the same healthy ingredients you aim to give your body!

For more information about Dyanna Spa’s products and services, or to schedule your appointment, please visit http://dyannaspa.com or call us at 212-995-2355.

Brazilian Waxing vs. Bikini Wax: What Manhattan / New York Women are Choosing this Summer at the Best Manhattan, NYC Spa ‘s

The classic debate about what method of bikini hair removal to employ- brazilian wax or regular bikini wax – heats up this summer as bikini styles get tinier, and bodies leaner. Why opt for a bikini wax or go all the way with brazilian waxing?  Most people living in Manhattan or anywhere else in New York, NYC work hard all winter and spring long to get their body ready for bikini season, so when it comes to stripping off the top layers of clothes, you wouldn’t want all that hard work to go to waste due to unsightly ingrown hairs, razor burns and scars, and stubble coming through.

It’s 2010 and with the endless amounts of electrolysis, laser hair removal, and waxes to remove unsightly pubic hair, why on earth would you

still employ your shaving cream and razor to do your dirty work. With all the stubble and razor burn that gets left behind it’s time to consider waxing your nether region.

When coming into Dyanna Body & Nail Salon, one of NYC’s favorite and most trusted salons, for a wax “down under” it comes down to two choices, the Brazilian Wax or a Bikini Wax.  The difference between the two is really just a matter of preference but I’d like to go over the basics for these two essential summer time procedures.

Bikini – For all those shy and meek women out there, I’d suggest you start out with a bikini wax so you still have some sense of modesty when you leave.  Now what to expect? First, if the hair is too long the specialist will trim it. Then wax is heated to allow it to be spread easily and evenly over the skin in the direction of hair growth, warm wax is applied to the waxing area with a wooden stick. The hair becomes embedded in the wax, which cools and firms up holding the hair. Next, cotton strips are placed over the wax. The wax is then quickly pulled off in the opposite direction of the hair growth, pulling the hairs out of the follicles along with dead skin cells. New hair growth in waxed areas is soft and fine. After repeated waxing, hair re-growth is less and less. After the procedure is done feel free to strut down the beach with no sarong to hide your embarrassing stubble.

Brazilian – If you’re a bolder soul and don’t mind sharing your bits and goodies with the trained professionals at Dyanna Body & Nail Salon than I strongly suggest you go for the gold with the Brazilian Wax. The Brazilian wax takes away everything and when I say everything, I mean everything. Every last hair you want removed will be yesterday’s news.  Brazilian waxes are known to make women feel more confident, more sexy, and more bold.  Knowing that you can control your “situation” gives you the confidence to control any situation, so go ahead and let your man drool as you walk around with nothing to hide in the buff!

Dyanna Spa’s painless, safe and quick waxing hair removal services for men & women have helped us become a “Best Spa for Overall Waxing Spa in NYC,” “Best Spa for Bikini Wax in NYC,” and “Best Spa for Brazilian Wax in NYC,” by Citysearch.  Our expert technicians practice the safest techniques that guarantee our clients a very strict no double dipping policy. Our special azulen aloe wax formula works effectively to remove hair gently, safely and quickly. Have sensitive skin? No worries! Try our gentle Cirepil Hard Wax to ensure the best results.
