Hi beauties! You read that headline right, Vagacials are now a thing. It’s 2021 after all, nothing should surprise us at this point…

What is taboo and off-limits anymore? Trump was president 5 minutes ago, every millennial guy has a full sleeve, and women are starting to have a voice in the Whitehouse.

I know my conservative family is going to cringe at the headline of this article, but it’s not what you think. When Grace Skin and Wellness invited me to come and experience their Vagina Facial, my first reaction was ‘I’m OK thanks!’

I mean I’m open minded and I would love to bring you all the latest in beauty and skincare innovations, but I’m not that keen on being over exposed. I did some research on the topic and when I felt that I would not be over-exposed, I then booked my appointment.

It’s not what you think it is

This treatment is for women who suffer from ingrown hairs and have scars on their bikini line area. Up until now, women with ingrown hairs and vaginal scarring had to suffer in silence. Luckily this is 2021 ya’ll so suffering in silence is no longer a thing.

Grace Skin and Wellness in Parkmore is investing in alternative, more natural and homeopathic procedures, as well as procedures for all the problems us women have, but never want to talk about.

Their salon looks like a secret garden, nestled in the heart of Parkmore.

When you walk to what looks like a cottage, you’re greeted by a cotton-candy pink door, and a wall of beautiful succulents. When I walked in, one of the first things I noticed was the wallpaper on the ceilings of the different therapy rooms. This is something quite different from what other salons are offering at the moment.

Now you can stare at a beautiful, colourful and intricate ceiling while having your treatment, or sit up and look outside to a beautiful manicured lawn of succulents and indigenous plants.

I am happy to say this procedure is available able for any woman over the age of 18 who suffers from ingrown hairs. There’s no down time, so it can even be done in your lunch break.

I was a little nervous when I arrived for my treatment as I wasn’t quite sure what to expect

I was quickly put to ease by Lisa, the therapist who worked with me. She asked me to fill in some paperwork and then we went through to start the treatment. You’re guided to a private room, where you’re wrapped in a towel.

To be clear, this treatment is completely external. They do not go anywhere near your naughty bits, only your bikini line. What a relief!

They start off by applying a cleanser and then an exfoliator to the area, and then we spoke about all the other alternative treatments that they offer and what is in the pipeline and still to come! Stay tuned, some exciting developments are coming up.

Lisa is very knowledgeable about her field and her passion for beauty and alternative therapies is clear, which also tends to have a calming effect on clients. Please note that the towel is moved slightly, only to expose the area they are currently working on, which can include the pubic bone should you have ingrown hairs/scarring there too.

It’s best to wax a week before your treatment

A warm towel is used to remove the product from your skin and then the area is steamed to soften the hairs and open the pores of the skin.

Lisa then applied a numbing cream to the area. She uses a high-quality numbing cream which is the best I’ve used to date. She wraps the area in cling-wrap to assist with absorption and to help the cream act faster.

We then began with the micro needling. This is the part I was most nervous about as I know you can bleed and it can be extremely painful, and I have the lowest pain threshold.

I honestly did not feel a thing, no pain whatsoever and I didn’t bleed.

I am so happy!

Hygiene is their number one priority, so a disposable needling head and plastic barrier are used. The area is red after the procedure but it’s not painful or inflamed. You can literally carry on with your day.

You’ve heard of micro needling for your face, as an anti-aging means to treat wrinkles and fine lines.

Micro needling your pubic bone and bikini line assists with scar repair, removing ingrown hairs and it assist with rejuvenating the area. The next step was to apply a hydrating mask to the micro needled area.

To soothe the skin. While the mask was soothing the area, Lisa performs foot reflexology to help your body restore some balance. The mask is then removed and a healing balm is applied, and then you’re free to get dressed and carry on with your day. The whole process takes 1 – 1, 5 hours. And 2-4 treatments are recommended, depending on your concerns and level of scarring.

This treatment may not be mainstream yet, but its pain free and it works. This is a treatment that I would recommend and something I would definitely go back for. I felt completely comfortable throughout the entire process. The treatment costs about R650 a session.
