The vajacial is a spa offering that’s taken vulvas by storm over the past few years. After all, we devote time and money to our face and hair. Shouldn’t we do the same for the most intimate area of the body?
Vajacials are typically offered in conjunction with or after hair removal process like lasering, waxing, sugaring, or shaving. Ingrown hairs, inflammation, and blackheads are bound to happen. Many women are very aware of their vulva’s appearance, and these conditions can be bothersome and a vajacial treatment can help ease a lot of these concerns. Vajacials , aim to reduce ingrown hairs, clogged pores, acne, dry skin, or irritation in the vulvar area with processes like steaming, extractions, exfoliation, masking, moisturizing and sometimes adding a skin brightening treatment to lessen discoloration and hyperpigmentation.
When should you get a vajacial?
The ideal time is 10 days after a bikini or Brazilian wax, because your hair is just starting to appear beneath the surface of the skin. However, that doesn't mean that you have to get a vajacial after every wax. I think it's the perfect treatment to get 2-4 times per year, just as a way to maintain healthy skin and clean up your bikini line. If you never suffer from in-grown hairs or bumps, then you probably don't need this treatment at all.
What does it cost and how long does it take?
The cost for the vajacial will vary depending on how often one comes in. The initial cost is $50. That drops to $35 if doing more than one treatment a month or when booking with in between Brazilian services.
The service itself can take up to 45 minutes, depending on how many ingrowns are needing to be extracted.
