Bruising from Brazilian?

I received a very important question from one of my readers and I wanted to share it with you, as well as my response.

Here is her email:

Hi, I’ve had three waxes now – first two were fine and jus got a little bit red.

This third one I had today was by a professional at a salon.

I have what looks like bruising or blood that came to the surface of my skin in the crease of where my leg starts….also one side of the labia is really red. It didn’t feel like the wax was too hot…it felt like the last two times. I’m not sure why I reacted this way this time.

Could the bruising and bloody marks on one part by my crease be from tensing up when she pulled the sheet off or too thin of skin there to wax?

What Causes Bruising from Brazilian Wax?

The bikini area is highly sensitive and it is common for bruising to occur there from waxing.  That doesn’t, however, imply that it is ok to become bruised after a Brazilian wax.  The thinner you are, the more likely you are to bruise because your blood vessels are closer to the surface and there is less tissue between your skin and your vessels.

The primary reason bruising occurs after a Brazilian wax is because of the technique used by the technician. The technician needs to know how to handle that particular area given its sensitivity and tendency to bruise. A trained technician who knows the sensitivity of that area can use a special technique to reduce the chances of injury to the skin.

The skin in the bikini area needs to be pulled taught, and wax should be removed in very small strips, little areas at a time, instead of one full rip.

If you are taking any blood thinners like Coumadin, this can also cause bruising.   If you are on any medication, your technician should know about that.  But most likely your bruising is due to the technician’s technique.

The reason I know is because very early on in my career I also made that same mistake.  Expertise comes from experience, and from our experience we perfect our practice.  I analyzed the situation and used my knowledge to understand why this happened to ensure that it didn’t happen again.

Finding the best Brazilian Wax Expert

You’ll want to perform a thorough ‘interview’ with your spa before you book your appointment. It’s important to ask questions such as how long has a particular technician been performing the Brazilian wax and is this one of their specialties.  You don’t want just anyone performing this delicate procedure. It can take years of practice to ace the Brazilian, and believe me; a well trained wax expert is definitely worth driving the few extra miles.

Another option is to go off of a referral from a friend or co-worker.  Chances are if this person is satisfied with a particular technician, you will be as well.  You can also perform a Google search for a particular spa or technician and see if any positive reviews were written online.
