Intimate waxing is the removal of pubic hair from the pubic region. This can be anything from the basic bikini line (the hair just outside of the knicker line) to a Hollywood wax (the hair from the entire pubic triangle, labia, perenium and anus) Whatever your preference, Celestial Star Therapies can cater for your waxing needs.
Pubic hair has been removed for thousands of years for various reasons, whether it be for religion, hygiene, partner preference and even comfort! Since the 1980’s The Brazilian wax has become increasingly popular and lots more styles and techniques have been developed to suit everybody!
What to expect
Each intimate waxing treatment is tailored to the individual and I aim to deliver comfort, minimal pain and an excellent result.
Intimate waxing treatments are carried out without underwear on to ensure a precise wax. I won’t ask you to put your legs behind your head or up on my shoulder etc. Absolute discression is paramount and I’ve seen it all before!
Depending on your pain threshold, there may be an element of shock during your first wax but as you continue with your waxing routine this pain reduces as the hair gets thinner.
Please bring loose fitting clothing and arrive fresh and clean! I do provide freshening wipes too.
When can I have an intimate wax?
Ideally, the hair needs to be around 1cm long and this is usually 2 – 3 weeks from shaving or 4 weeks from waxing.
I’m on my period, can I still be waxed?
Yes of course, as long as you are wearing a tampon that can be tucked away and you maintain good levels of hygiene, there is no reason you cannot have a wax. However, you may prefer to wait until you have finished menstruating as it can increase sensitivity and you may experience a little more pain.
After my wax
After your first wax, you may experience some regrowth and a stubbly finish until the hair cycle is in “sync”. You will start to notice a more regular hair growth cycle after 3 to 4 waxes and the hair will grow back thinner and less coarse.
What about a reaction?
Everybody’s skin behaves differently after intimate waxing. You may experience irritation or redness as the skin can be distressed after the first couple of waxing treatments, but we offer clear after care advice and products that help soothe the skin. The wax is designed to be gentle but effective and discomfort after a wax should be minimal.
You may also experience some itching as the hair breaks through, but following our aftercare will alleviate any discomfort.
Will I suffer with ingrown hairs?
If you follow the aftercare advice we provide, the risk of ingrown hairs does reduce but are unfortunately inevitable in some cases. A hair follicle is never empty and contains a gland that produces sebum. When the follicle is free of hair, sebum may be produced meaning that the new hair grows within it forming what looks like a blackhead.
The other cause of ingrown hairs is when the skin heals over the follicle before the new hair has grown causing the hair to grow sideways. Regular exfoliation and moisturisation will help to reduce this.
