Brazilian Wax – what it is and what to expect

Brazilian wax
Brazilian wax also called LA bikini or XXX consists in removing the pubic hair from your genital areas. It can be all hair off or you can leave a landing strip at the front.

The UVB and UVA rays penetrate the layers of the skin damaging the collagen fibres. Collagen fibres make a criss-cross pattern that keeps our skin plump and flexible.
