Industry Insights: The Vajacial Treatment

What is a Vajacial? 

A vajacial is a term coined from the facial treatment. The main difference is location targeted. Instead of the face, the focus is on the vulva and inner thighs. Although the name comes from 'vagina' a vajacial is technically done on the bikini line/vulva, and not the vagina. 

What's the history of Vajacial's? 

The term vajacial has been used for many years by waxing professionals and esthetician's as the way to describe a facial for your bikini line. This type of service has been around for many years, but gained mass popularity and awareness in 2019. 

As you can see in the Google Trends report the Vajacial term has become widespread and is now offered in thousands of spas and salons across Canada and the USA.

The Most Common Steps in a Vajacial Treatment 

Getting a Vajacial can be different in many spas, but here are the most common steps we see with our spa professionals. 

Optional: Getting a Wax 

Many vajacial's start with a standard bikini wax. For some a wax can lead to redness and irritation. Because of this a vajacial service immediately following a wax can soften and soothe your bikini line. 

Step 1: Steam 

Most vajacial treatments then start with a steam. This will soften the area and open the pores. 

Step 2: Vajacial Mask 

Adding a vajacial mask, often a hydrogel mask, will soften the skin and relieve irritation and redness 

Step 3: Soothing Oil 

For additional soothing properties you'll want to add a soothing bikini oil, or post waxing oil

Step 4: LED Light Therapy 

As a final step many professionals will do LED light therapy to speed up the healing process.
