If you thought only women need delicate hair removal and pampering, then you absolutely were wrong.
Men also would want to look smooth and dashing and the best way to do this is to get expert and effective hair removal.
Male waxing is a general term for hair removal treatments using wax for the male body.
It is a fact that the male epidermis (the outermost layer of the skin) is 20% thicker than a woman’s, men feel less pain when waxed.
If this is your first time to get waxed then expect a slight sting; but as you regularly wax, you will feel less and less pain.
Male waxing could be done in any part of the body where there is hair.
Some men are naturally hairy than others and therefore treatments may vary.
The most common male waxing treatments are:
- full leg and half leg
- brazilian, hollywood (intimate area waxing is not available in Green Orchid)
- full arm, half arm,
- back (upper, lower or full, bottom shoulders)
- ears and neck
There are highly specialized waxing treatments for the entire body too.
Male waxing should be done by a professional to avoid burns and cuts.
A professional will first trim the area if hair is thick and then apply warm wax to a small area.
A strip of paper will be placed over the wax to allow it to adhere to hair.
After a few seconds, the paper is removed against the hair line and hair is removed from the roots.
Male waxing will keep the area free from hair for at least 4 to 6 weeks.
It is not a permanent hair removal solution. Afterwards, you may have another session to remove hair.
As mentioned there are so many areas of the male body where hair could be present.
Preparation is done according to the area to be waxed.
Typically a wax allergy testing will be done before waxing could be done.
This ensures that you are not allergic to the product that will be used.
Once it has been determined that you are not allergic, the area will be washed and hair will be trimmed.
Afterwards, warm wax is applied.
