New to the Bikini Wax or Brazilian Wax?

Removing hair has come a long way since Ancient Egyptians made a practice of removing all of the hair on their bodies with sharp flints and pumice stones or since the Greeks removed pubic hair by tediously plucking each strand with tweezers made of seashells! Intimate waxing at one of our New York City-based medical spas is a specialty of ours and we put you at ease in a serene environment with professional, licensed aestheticians who have performed countless bikini waxes and Brazilian waxes on both men and women.

If you’re thinking about having a bikini wax or Brazilian for the first time or are looking to improve your experience, let us tell you about what to expect at one of our Aesthetic Artistry medical spas located in Manhattan and Staten Island. We will give you the experience you are looking for with a result that you will love so you can feel confident, sexy, and beautiful!


the advantage of our wax

Our licensed medical aestheticians use a hard wax called Cirepil to remove hair by the root. Softer waxes made of gum ivy, honey, sugar and strip wax are not as effective.

Using Cirepil has many advantages including:

  • Does not stick to skin
  • Less painful
  • More effective for sensitive areas

The Benefits of getting your bikini area waxed

  • Results Last Longer - Shaving, hair removal creams or other methods of at-home hair removal must be done frequently to keep up with the growth of the hair. Waxing removes hair by the root so hair takes much longer to grow back.
  • Healthier Skin - The Cirepil waxing process actually exfoliates the skin to remove dead skin cells. Usually hidden beneath clothing, the skin of the bikini area rarely has the opportunity to breathe and can develop pimples and ingrown hairs. Waxing is a safe and effective way to promote skin health.
  • Minimally Irritating - Although the waxing process may cause minor irritation initially depending on your skin’s sensitivity, compared to other methods of hair removal like hair removal creams or epilation, the irritation is short-lived.
  • check
    Smooth Skin - After a wax, the skin of the bikini area is extremely smooth because of the exfoliation effect of the wax. The hair is also completely removed and not just cut close to the skin as in shaving or other methods for hair removal.
  • check
    Finer Hair Grows Back - As hair does grow back, it’s finer and thinner than before. The reason is that the actual hair follicles weaken so hair grows back softer and less dense.
  • check
    After the first wax, it gets easier and easier! The skin is smoother and hair is finer with each waxing treatment, so make your appointment today at our Aesthetic Artistry Manhattan or Staten Island locations!

    Men, don’t think we’ve left you out! Intimate waxing for men is one of our specialities. We’ve created a page just for you on our website explaining all of our intimate waxing services for men if you are interested in our Men’s Bikini Wax or Brazilian Wax.

HOW DOES waxing WORK?

Strip-less hard wax is the #1 hair removal method used around the world and is one of the simplest ways to remove hair. There are no strips, just the wax. Strip-less Cirepil wax is applied at bath water temperature, which allows for the smooth lift away of hair, which leaves skin undisturbed. There is less breakage and trauma to the hair and its follicle because the wax grabs the hair straight from the root. Unlike razors or creams, no hair is left behind so your skin is smooth. No longer will you worry about those stubborn ingrown hairs!

Bikini Waxing Dos

  • DO let our aestheticians know if you are on any medications such as antibiotics, Accutane or Retin-A.
  • DO relax as much as you can and breathe. Know you are in good hands as our aestheticians have performed countless bikini waxes and Brazilian waxes.
  • check
    DO make sure hair is at least ¼ inch. (Note: If it’s too long, our aestheticians may opt to trim it because hair longer then ½ inch can be more painful.)

Bikini Waxing Don'ts

  • DON’T consume alcohol or large amounts of caffeine before treatment as it can cause the pores to tighten.
  • DON’T tan the day before your appointment.
  • check
    DON’T get a bikini wax if you have a sunburn. We are trained professionals and your skin health is our top priority, so we will advise you to wait until after the sunburn heals.
  • check
    DON’T have a bikini wax around your period. Although it is possible to wax your bikini area if you wear a tampon, your skin may be much more sensitive around that time.
  • check
    DON’T have sex for 24 hours after the waxing to prevent further irritation.

What do I need to do to prepare for a wax?

Decide what kind of waxing style you want.  

Bikini Waxing Styles - Our NYC aestheticians are skilled and inventive. They’ll help you decide the perfect style for you depending of your skin’s sensitivity and your preferences.

american

Only removes hair that is visible along the sides of the bikini or panty line as well as the upper part of the thigh and below the belly button. All remaining hair is trimmed. It’s designed to remove any hair that would show through a bikini.

French

Removes all hair from the upper thighs, the sides of the labia, and on the front of your intimate area except for a thin vertical strip of hair left on the front, usually called a landing strip. The French bikini wax will not remove hair from the buttocks.

Bermuda Triangle

Shapes hair into a wide triangle that covers the front of the mons pubis, or pubic mound.

Desert Island

Shapes hair into a small triangle of hair on the upper part of the pubic bone that looks like it is floating, so it covers less than the Bermuda Triangle.

Heart and other unique shapes

Our skilled aestheticians can help you be bold and beautiful. If you are prone to developing ingrown hairs, shapes may not be the right choice since the wax has to be applied in the opposite direction of your hair growth, but we’ll help you decide.

Brazilian

Thanks to popular TV shows like Sex and the City, the Brazilian bikini wax has become the most popular waxing style. Originally introduced to U.S. ladies by the J Sisters, seven Brazilian sisters whose names all started with the letter J, the Brazilian Wax entails complete hair removal from the entire pubic area, labia, inner thighs and buttocks.

bikini Wax Aftercare

To treat any redness and prevent ingrown hairs, our aestheticians at both of our NYC locations offer a wide variety of skin care products for purchase and will advise you on the perfect skin regime for your skin needs. With products rich in alpha hydroxy acids and serums, we will help you every step of the way.

What to expect after your first Bikini Wax

Hair Growth:
After your very first bikini wax or if it’s been a long time since you have had a wax, the majority of pubic hair will be removed. Because hair grows in cycles, you may notice hair growth within a week. However, waxing every 3-4 weeks will cause hair to grow on the same cycle, which results in smooth, long-lasting results. Consistency is the key! The hair will grow back finer and thinner, so your bikini waxing sessions will be easier and shorter. 

Possible Redness:
You may experience redness for a few minutes to a few days, but the effects are temporary and eventually the skin will clear revealing smooth, beautiful skin.

Free Time:
Without having to shave frequently or use other methods of hair removal at home, you’ll have some extra time to relax and enjoy how confident and beautiful you look!
