Bad Brazilian/bikini wax
I just got a brazilian wax. She waxed everything but my bum so I guess it wan't really a brazilian. The lady didn't use gloves and reused the sticks. I wanted to tell her stop but felt bad. She really hurt one side of my vagina. Can I get any diseases like hiv/aids. i bled in one spot. what if someone else bled and they were infected??? very nervous. I washed with antibacterial soap as soon as i came home and put natural aloe on it. How safe am I???

I am an esthetician who does brazilians all day. Always ask that your tech wears gloves, and does not double dip. Its always a debate if diseases can transfer and it certainly isn't worth the chance.The blood comes after the hair is yanked out of the follicle because there is a blood supply at the base of your hair follicle. This type of bleeding is called pin point bleeding, and if your tech did not go back over that spot, blood should not be on the reused stick. Most Techs will wipe the blood away with some type of anti=bac solution.Try Tea tree after  getting waxed, its antimicrobial and anti-inflammitory. you can expect soreness and redness especially if the paper strips were used. I would asked about gloves and double dip policies when you make the appoint. call, and keep searching till you find a policy you are comfortable with.

Oh no....
im a beauty therapist...
did she use a metal spatula?
or did she double dip at all?
thats illegal here in aus u have to use a new stick every dip
and gloves is a must

its unlikely that u would have gotten something but its possible
because say a lady has a colesore on her lip...
she gets a lip wax ...
beauty therapist double dips...
then u get a bikini wax down there...

get my drift?

DONT STRESS chances are if someone had aids they wouldnt be going to a place like that getting that sort of thing

but... its still best to make a complaint to the store because its serious

but hun DONT FREAK im sure u wouldnt have cought anything ok

becarefull where the blood spot was tho that u dont get an infection there from not keeping it clean now that its an open wound
