For close to a year now I have gone for a Brazilian wax every four weeks, except for a break during December 2017 and January 2018. The first couple of treatments were painful, but my skin started getting used to it and the hair got less. Yes, they still hurt but definitely less than before.
Then I went for my August treatment.
The first place my beautician always applies wax is in my groin. This time was no different. She allowed the wax to cool and then, from bottom to top she pulled it off. God, it hurt. The other side too.
I literally moaned. She applied the next strips of wax.
In the meantime I was telling her that I had been I’ll and was still kot 100% better. That I first had some kind of virus on my vestibular, then I had a cold for two days and directly after that my eyes started feeling like I constantly had sand in them. It turned out that I had a eye inflammation that was caused by… the cold virus.
“Did you take meds for any of this?” she asked while she applied more wax. She had already pulled of more wax and I had apologized for my whimpering, telling her it seemed to hurt as much as it did in the beginning.
“Yes,” I said, “I had meds for 15 days to increase the blood flow to my inner ear.
“Don’t be startled,” she warned, “but your groin has bruised. We sometimes see this in people who use blood thinners and I think the meds you take have the same effect.”
She was mortified that I had bruises and I told her not to worry.
“When did you stop taking it?”
That was only four days earlier.
That night in bed I wanted to see how much I had bruised. I expected red spots in my groin, but was really surprised when I found proper bruises. On the right the bruise was much bigger than the left. I had never had this before.
The next day there was quite a bit of discomfort during daytime. I sat at my desk and as the day progressed, my groin hurt more and more. Thankfully the pain gradually got less, as did the bruising.
I searched for similar experiences online and saw the advice that you should immediately change salons, but this was definitely me, not her. She did nothing different than any of the previous times, so next month I will go back to her again.
And then I don’t only have a Brazilian scheduled, but also a facial and a shoulder massage. I can hardly wait!
