I’ve been holding off on getting a Brazilian wax for the longest time. I mean, why do I need to take it all off when a bikini wax would do, right?
But, well, I got invited to try the services of Wink Laser & Wax Studio at 3rd Level, C2 Bldg., 7th Ave. corner 28th St., Bonifacio High Street Central, Bonifacio Global City. I said I’ll go ahead and try their bikini and leg waxing.
When I was already on the treatment bed, the therapist said, “Ma’am, why don’t you just go all the wax Brazilian?” Right there, so vulnerable, yet feeling very bold, I decided I will. I might as well. It wouldn’t hurt…would it?
I have to admit, the therapists at Wink really know they’re stuff. The reason I’ve been holding off on doing Brazilian is all the horror stories I’ve heard from friends who tried it for the first time—how excruciatingly painful it was, how loud they screamed. Since I didn’t want to get hurt or embarrass myself screaming, I decided I won’t risk it. But, the rooms at Wink were private, and they were happy (with its vibrant color scheme and playful design) and relaxing at the same time. So, if I’m going to get hurt and scream, at least I wouldn’t be heard, especially since there’s soft happy music playing in the background.
But going back to the therapists, they managed my first time really well. Sure, it’s painful. I think even if your threshold of pain is quite high, there will still be some sort of discomfort (fine, pain) when pulling it all out, especially for the first time. Like with everything, it gets less painful the more you get used to it, but since it was my first and I didn’t know what to expect, I was expecting the worst. But, I was relieved that it wasn’t at all as painful as I thought, and I’d have to give credit to my therapist.
She knew what direction to pull and in what direction to do so. She was fast, precise, and very sure of what she was doing, so I was able to relax more—something that actually helps. She also kept me distracted by chatting with me a little, making me laugh, and even giving me words of encouragement (along the lines of “Ma’am, konti na lang, promise!” haha). Before I knew it, we were done!
She also answered all my questions, and even shared some after-care tips, which I will share with you guys in my next post, so watch for it!
