The Benefits of a Vajacial

Intimate skin is often overlooked in our daily skin care routine. It is also a delicate and intimate area of the body that is more susceptible to irritants and infections than other parts of the body. A vajacial is a treatment designed to pamper this special area of the body and to keep it feeling refreshed, ingrown hair free, and bright.

A vajacial is a spa-like experience that takes place in the comfort of an esthetician’s room. It is a carefully tailored facial for the vulva (bikini line, pubic area and outer labia) that helps to kill lingering bacteria, bring back moisture, solve common problems like blackheads, ingrown hairs and even skin hyper pigmentation and leave the client with supple, soft and smooth skin.

The treatment begins with a thorough cleaning website, and a gentle exfoliation of the outer labia and bikini area. If any ingrown hairs are present, they will be removed with sterilized extraction tools. A hydration mask is then applied and left to work for 15-20 minutes. It is then rinsed off and the client is encouraged to use a good moisturizer on the vulva after the treatment.

Ingrown hairs are a common problem for women that wax or shave their bodies, and are especially frustrating when they form in the pubic mound or the area around the labia. They can cause irritation and itching and, if not treated properly, they can grow into ingrown hairs that are difficult to get rid of. Vajacials can help to prevent ingrown hairs by exfoliating and removing dead skin cells, which allows the hair to grow out of the follicles freely.

Many women experience chronic irritated skin in the vulva, which can be caused by over-washing, harsh soaps and deodorants, and even certain hair products. This is called lichen simplex chronicus or LSC and can lead to itching, which then leads to more scratching and ultimately a vicious cycle of inflammation.

A regular vajacial can help to prevent LSC, and is also a great treatment for anyone experiencing itchy skin in the vulva or pubic area. It can also treat a condition known as hidradenitis suppurativa, which is an inflammatory skin disorder that causes recurrent itching, bumps and boils in the vulva.

Vajacials can also be an excellent treatment for women who are pregnant, although it is important to make sure the client is comfortable with having an esthetician examine their vulva during the treatment.

The hydration phase of a vajacial can sometimes cause slight swelling in the area, but this should subside after a few hours. If the client experiences any sensitivity, they are encouraged to apply a cold compress and seek advice from their practitioner. Regular vajacials are recommended to maintain the results of the treatment, and help to prevent ingrown hairs, itchiness and inflammation in this sensitive area. The treatment is also an excellent stress reliever and can help to boost self-esteem by bringing back confidence in the skin of the intimate area.
