Clients often ask, what is a vajacial? This subject may be uncomfortable, but we are in the business of hair removal so “vajajay” talk is just another work day. In fact, we decided to share our vajacial knowledge on Facebook live—go listen. The estheticians at Sugar and Skin Spa are in the business of helping women love and accept their bodies, including the intimate skin below the waistline. We are all unique, our lives are unique, and our skin is unique.
IS A VAJACIAL A SPA TREATMENT FOR THE VAGINA. YES & NO, LET’S TALK ANATOMY!
Yes, a vajacial is a spa treatment but not for your vagina. A vajacial is a spa treatment for the intimate skin below the waistline, above and around the vagina. Let’s travel back to middle school sex education class and discuss the anatomy involved during a vajacial treatment. During a vajacial, your esthetician will focus on the skin of the vulva and labia—labia majora to be exact. The vulva is the outer part of the female genitalia which “houses” all the lady parts. The labia majora are the outer skin folds of the vagina, often referred to as the “lips.” Long story short, we do nothing with the vagina, this is an area of the body that should be cared for by your gynecologist. We treat the intimate skin around the vagina.
IS A VAJACIAL THE VAGINA FACIAL?
We apply specialized skincare products on the intimate skin of the vulva and labia. Just like a facial, we discuss skin concerns before starting any spa treatment. Most of our vajacials are booked as a $21 add-on to a sugaring hair removal treatment. We often recommend a vajacial to those who complain of ingrown hairs, dark spots or sensitive skin.
HOW IS A VAJACIAL PERFORMED AT SUGAR AND SKIN SPA?
Here at Sugar and Skin Spa our estheticians use skincare products to cleanse the skin of the vulva and the labia, next we apply an enzyme that acts as a mild exfoliator, usually coconut papaya or a raspberry peach. These enzymes are mild, so mild that they are even safe for pregnant women and they won’t leave the skin tingly or irritated. The purpose of the enzyme is to remove dead skin cells so that blackheads and ingrown hairs can be extracted. Last, we apply a gentle mask. We often formulate a mask to target individual skin conditions (i.e. anti-aging, brightening or soothing/calming mask). Any mask we formulate for the face we often can apply to the intimate skin. Again, during a client’s appointment we discuss skin concerns and then specialize a mask to target those concerns. Any mask we use on the intimate skin is always calming and soothes the skin.
