    Lisette Meuse-Manuel, owner of Dermak Studio in Moncton, N.B., tells Best Health magazine, “getting a Brazilian can result in burns, ripped skin, infection and, more rarely, if the salon’s hygiene practices are poor, transmission of STDs.”  The Brazilian wax first started cropping up in North America in the ‘90s when the J Sisters opened their salon in midtown Manhattan. One of the first places to offer the beauty treatment, the Brazilian differs from a standard bikini wax by not only removing the hair just outside of the bikini line but by taking everything off below the belly button including any hairs found between the cheeks–also referred to as the “butt strip.”  The need for such an extreme wax was created by the introduction of the string bikini in Brazil.
