Caring for your body hair is a personal choice and if you’re determined to remove your back, chest, or body, the best way to ensure a silky, smooth finish is to have it removed professionally. At Premiere Aesthetics in Fort Myers, FL, our male body waxing services will help you to embrace your own self-care practices. Whether you’re in sports, prefer the aesthetic, or just like the clean feeling, we have a full range of waxing options to suit your grooming needs.
What Is Male Body Waxing?
Male body waxing is a temporary hair removal treatment for men that is safe, effective, and instantaneous. The treatment uses warm wax to extract hair follicles from the skin while leaving the skin unharmed. The results last longer than shaving or using depilatory creams and are less likely to cause itching, skin irritation, or ingrown hair. In fact, waxed hair grows back softer, and receiving regular waxing treatments has been shown to reduce the density of hair growth.
How It Works
When you arrive for your appointment, we will gently clean and powder the treatment area to ensure the wax sticks only to the hair. Then, warm wax will be spread onto the body in the direction of the hair growth. Once the wax has been spread on the body, we’ll place a cotton wax strip over top of the wax which will then be swiftly pulled away from the body in the opposite direction of the hair growth. This protects the skin while removing the hair follicles.
During your waxing treatments, you may experience minor discomfort. However, this should not extend beyond the completion of your treatment. For longer treatments, you may choose to take an over-the-counter pain medication an hour prior to your appointment to minimize your discomfort.
How Do I Prepare For My Appointment?
For waxing to be effective, the hair in the targeted area must be at least 1/4 inch long (approximately 3 weeks of hair growth). For this reason, we ask that you do not shave or trim your treatment area prior to your appointment. You’ll also want to avoid applying any lotions or oils to the treatment area prior to your appointment, as it is important that the treatment areas are clean and dry.
How Long Will It Take?
Appointment lengths may vary depending on what area(s) of the body are being treated. Facial waxing and our Men’s Grooming Package, for example, are shorter treatments that can typically take around 15 minutes to half an hour. Treatments such as half arms waxing, half legs waxing, back waxing, and chest waxing may take half an hour or longer, depending on the amount of hair growth. Full body waxing treatments (combinations of full legs waxing, full arms waxing, chest waxing, and back waxing) can take from 2 to 3 hours.
You can expect your results to last from 2 to 4 weeks, after which, follow-up appointments will be needed to maintain results. During this time, aftercare is essential to keep the treatment areas free of irritation. For best results, we recommend keeping the area clean and dry. This will prevent unwanted bacteria from entering the skin through your pores and open follicles. Bathing, swimming, hot tubs, and excessive sweating should be avoided during the first week following your treatment.
We also recommend exercising caution around what products you use on the treatment area in the first week following treatment, as certain lotions, oils, and soaps can be irritating to the skin during this time. You’ll want to skip out on exfoliating products during this time, as well. If you’re not sure what to use on your skin following treatment, our staff will be happy to advise you on what your best options are.
Managing Ingrown Hair
If you are prone to ingrown hair, we recommend applying diluted tea tree oil to the treatment area once or twice per day. This should only be necessary for up to a week following your treatment and is a proactive measure for preventing unwanted bumps or ingrown hairs.
