Men have a multitude of issues about the genital region, and they may be persuaded to be waxed since their spouses have been doing it since the 1990s. Men are gaining ground rapidly for male waxing.
Male Brazilian waxing is the most common waxing service for men.
1. What is a Brazilian male wax?
A normal Male Brazilian covers the frontal pubic region (the mound), which is about 2 inches above the point where the upper thigh meets the pubic area; the shaft, scrotum, and the inside of the glutes. A landing strip (patch of hair) over the shaft, known as the male Hollywood wax, is optional.
2. Will my male Brazilian wax hurt?
Yes is the quick answer. It has its unpleasant moments, but they are not nearly as bad as you believe. Typically, the discomfort is brief and does not persist. The first wax is the most painful since you are a beginner and your hair and skin are not used to the operation.
I generally advise my customers to give it at least two tries before deciding whether to continue doing it on a regular basis; the second time is considerably better!
3. Is there anything I can do to alleviate the discomfort?
Some consumers have found that taking two Tylenol before to the treatment is beneficial.
4. What if I am unfamiliar with waxing?
This implies that sometimes, particularly during the first wax, you may encounter discomfort. This may include little bruises, a tiny drop of blood from the pores when the hair is initially taken out, which disappears immediately, and redness in the region.
Additionally, the scrotum is a sensitive place to wax for the first time. On the scrotum, we use a high-quality French hard wax, and I endeavour to remove each and every hair.
However, if your scrotum seems to be deteriorating, we shall cease. We would rather leave a few hairs than remove skin, and it is often not an issue after the second or third time.
5. What must I do before to my first appointment?
If you shave, a 1/4- to 1/2-inch regrowth is preferred. It takes the typical individual two to three weeks to reach a length of 1/4 to 1/2 inch.
If you’ve never shaved before, you may trim to a half-inch length, but avoid over trimming.
We prefer to trim the area ourselves, but we recognize that you may be a frequent trimmer. Please refrain from trimming the area before to your appointment, the longer the better!
6. How often must I have a male Brazilian wax to preserve its appearance and feel?
Your initial wax will grow quicker than subsequent waxes, and you may see regrowth within 10 days. By the third regular wax (performed every 4 to 6 weeks), your hair will be finer and less thick, and you will experience less pain. The regrowth will be hindered, and it may take between three and six weeks to return.
7. Why do some types of guys wax?
Our male Brazilian customers vary in age from 18 to 70 years old. Some of them are truck drivers, students, professionals, sports, etc. Typically, men wax because their spouses like the appearance and sensation. Unhaired body areas are much more responsive to touch. It is simpler; you feel and maybe even seem larger.
Men wax because it makes a significant difference in hygiene, particularly if they have thick hair. Waxing may really alter how you see yourself. Men visit us for every conceivable cause, including thick hair, excessive perspiration, ingrown hairs from shaving, surgeries, cleanliness, a new body image, or to simplify their grooming routine.
8. What happens if I get an erection while being waxed?
You are aware that this occurs; it is an adrenal reaction, not a sexual one. There is no reason to feel ashamed. As long as we respect one another, there will be no issue.
9. Pre-Wax Precautions:
- Hair length must be at least 14 inch long.
- No shaving for at least two to three weeks.
- It is suggested that you take a hot shower before to your waxing session.
- Do not apply any lotions or creams to the waxing area.
- You may take a pain reliever/anti-inflammatory 30 minutes before to your visit, but not aspirin.
- Do not use topical numbing gels, as they might compromise waxing outcomes.
- Inform us if you have taken any drugs for your skin that might impair your waxing treatment. These include Accutane, Alpha or Beta Hydroxy Acids, Antibiotics, Benzoyl Peroxide, Differin, Retin-A/Retinol, and any other medicine that thins the skin.
- Reduce your coffee consumption on the day of your waxing session, since it might stimulate the nervous system and make you more sensitive to the waxing process.
- Before or after waxing, avoid spray tanning, sunbathing, and tanning beds for 24 hours.
10. Aftercare Advice:
Following treatment, your skin may feel and seem a bit tender. If you are going on vacation, you should be waxed at least four days in advance. Sweating may result in diseased hair follicles (Folliculitus), hence you should avoid the following:
- 24-hours after waxing, avoid activity, hot baths/showers, sauna, steam, hot tubs, pools, and beaches. After waxing, perspiration may transport germs into the pores and irritate the skin.
- If required, use Aquafor, aloe vera gel, antibiotic ointment, antifungal, or hydrocortisone cream.
- After waxing, avoid wearing tight clothes, particularly in the waxed regions. Tight garments may cause discomfort and ingrown hairs.
- Daily exfoliation is advised for preventing ingrown hairs.
