Nowadays, many men are including hair removal in their grooming routine. Waxing is an effective and convenient hair removal procedure that offers many benefits to both male and female clients.

With the rise of male clientele, more salons are offering various male waxing services. At SOS Wax in Las Vegas, our licensed estheticians specialize in male full-body waxing. With its many benefits, it’s no wonder why more and more men are getting drawn to waxing services.

Benefits of Male Waxing

There are many benefits to male waxing services. While some of them are purely aesthetic, such as  muscle definition or smoother complexion, other benefits include:

  • Prevents ingrown hair
  • Exfoliates dead skin cells
  • Lowers risk of razor cuts or burns
  • Promotes slower hair growth
  • Stimulates finer hair growth

In addition to these amazing benefits, waxing can also be a cost-effective hair removal procedure in the long run. Before you book your first appointment, here’s everything you need about male waxing.

Assessing Skin Type and Hair Growth Before Waxing

It is important to understand the types of hair growth and skin before conducting a waxing session. Generally, male clients often have coarser and denser hair growth, requiring different techniques.

Assessing the client’s body hair growth and skin type allows estheticians and waxers to develop a beneficial method and waxing routine.

Conducting a Skin Test

The most important step to take before waxing is assessing the skin type. If the client has an irritable or sensitive skin type, it is best not to move forward with the waxing process. The best way to do this is by conducting a small test with the product on the skin to see how the skin reacts or by simply asking the customer about their skin history. 

When the skin type has been identified, the aesthetician will inform the client on how to prepare the skin before the session. Usually, pre-care tips are done two days before the process.

This gives the skin ample time to negate any negative side effects that may occur during waxing. It also ensures that the skin is completely ready for waxing.

Observing Hair Growth and Type

Knowing the hair type is an imperative step in providing a good waxing service. Hair growth varies from person to person, affected by factors such as ethnicity and temperature. For example, hair grows faster in warmer climates. Asian hair also tends to grow faster and more densely across the body. 

The length of the hair is also important. Only wax the hair when it is at a length of one-quarter of an inch. If the hair is longer, this could make the process more painful. When hair is longer, the wax becomes a muddled mess and may not effectively remove the hair follicles.

When the hair is shorter, the wax is easier to spread and remove from the area. Ensuring that the client’s hair is at the perfect length makes the process easier, more efficient, and less painful.

Different Waxing Services for Men

Male waxing has many different services to choose from. Since waxing has become a very popular choice in hair removal for men, choosing the right service can help you achieve your desired looks.

From male full-body waxing to male Brazilian waxing, you can count on the gentle and precise hands of our professional waxers at SOS Wax. Some of the more common waxing services include:

  • Face and eyebrows
  • Chest
  • Legs
  • Arms
  • Back and shoulders
  • Bikini line
  • Upper thigh

How to Choose the Right Service For You

The best way to choose one of these services is to assess your hair type and pain threshold. One of the benefits of body waxing is that it slows the regrowth time of hair. For male clients, this could be a great benefit for the face and chest, as these are often the hairiest area in their body.

In hotter months, thick body hair can be quite uncomfortable. With waxing, you no longer have to shave regularly. It also promotes healthier skin in these areas and helps you achieve more confidence.

A popular option for male waxing services is a full-body wax, often referred to as a manzilian waxing service. This removes the hair from your entire body while leaving you with a cleaner, healthier, and smoother complexion.

How to Prepare Before a Male Waxing Appointment

Before undergoing a wax, there are a few steps that you can take to experience a high-quality service. By following the proper pre-care and aftercare advice, you can reduce discomfort and ensure that you’ll get your desired results.

Here are some great tips that you could follow before your waxing appointment.

  • Avoid retinoids for the two days before the wax.
  • Avoid waxing if you have sensitive skin.
  • Take a pain reliever before the session.
  • Exfoliate your skin at least two days before the waxing is scheduled.
