Do you have male waxers?

Do you have wax Teen males?
Yes, waxing is available to teens ages 10 - 17 with parental consent and presence. We do not shave or clipper teens.
How is professional hair removal different than shaving or Nair? Waxing or Sugaring removes hair from the root. Shaving or Nair cuts or burns the hair off at the top of the skin which often leaves the shadow of the hair under the skin, and has the hair growing back in a few days feeling thicker and coarser. Shaving can also results in ingrown hairs, bumps and ongoing skin irritation. Waxing removes hair from under the skin, by the root. The hair grows back slower, softer and without stubble. When appropriate post treatment home care is followed, professional hair removal leaves virtually no ingrown hairs, bumps or ongoing skin irritation. Waxing or Sugaring will, over time, make hair growth finer, and if you're lucky you'll get less of it.
Will my hair grow in thicker or thinner?
Thinner! the longer you wax or sugar the lighter and thinner your hair will grow. And if you keep your hair removal on cycle (every 3-4 weeks), then you'll start permanently damaging the follicle which often stops the hair from growing forever
Can I shave or tweeze between waxes?
Well you can...but it’s not recommended. Your hair needs 3-4 weeks of growth for a successful professional hair removal. As soon as you shave or tweeze, you reset the growth cycle for those hairs. This means you will end up shaving or tweezing those hairs around the same time after you've seen me. So leave those hairs alone, and know that after a few more treatment sessions you won't need to shave or tweeze in between.
I'm prone to in grown hairs and razor bumps. Will this help?
Yes. With proper post care those should go away. We also offer special treatments for ingrown hairs and razor bumps
What do I wear to my treatment?
Wear something loose and cottony. The key is comfort.
If I shave, how long do I have to wait for my first wax?
If you shave, I ask that you wait a minimum of 10 days to two weeks before you wax.
Will it stay red for long?
No. Redness resulting from waxing goes within a couple of hours. If it doesn't, see your physician.
How often do I have to wax?
Every 3-6 weeks. Your therapist needs at least 5mm of hair for the wax to adhere to. Some men go every
3 weeks for a back wax. Others every 2 months. The more regular the better.
Can't I have laser treatment?
Of course you can... REALLY expensive and you have to go more than a
couple of times, paying every time... AND it also hurts... AND it does not work
on blond or grey hair.... Ditto for guys with dark hair and dark skins (or so we
are told and we always believe our clients!).
Does it hurt?
Yes it hurts but briefly
Is the sex better after waxing?
What type of men wax and why?
I have Male clients that range from 18 to 70 years
old. Some are truck drivers, students, professionals, athletes….you name
it. Men usually wax because their partners like the look and feel.
Body parts not covered in hair are much more sensitive to the touch. It
makes personal hygiene easier; you feel cleaner
Do I have to take my clothes off?
It's advisable, unless you want wax all over your clothes. But you don't HAVE to if you are only doing your
eyebrows... You can keep your T on if you only do your shaft and crack...
really! If you don't care, drop it all...
What are the advantages of waxing?
When hair is removed via waxing, the full hair is pulled out at the root. When it grows
back, it is softer. When you shave, the hair is cut off at the level of
the skin, so as it grows out, it is thicker and stiff. You are more
likely to have in-grown hair with shaving. If you wax on a regular
basis (every 4 to 5 weeks), the hair will start growing back on the same
growth cycle, so after about 3 months, you will have longer periods of
The one question that is on the mind of most men is
"What if I get an erection during the waxing service?" Just so you
know, it happens to about 50% of male clientele. This is usually an adrenal
response from the waxing service that most people have absolutely no control
over. Some men have this happen while at their doctor's office having a
physical. It's really not a problem, as long as you treat us with respect and
understand that we are professional estheticians, just removing hair,
and nothing more.
NEVER get waxed after you've been in the sun
too long! Your therapist will throw you out!
A therapist will never wax over moles,
varicose veins or any funny-looking 'things' on your skin.
I'm getting this done for a special occasion, when should I come in?
Be sure to come in 3-4 weeks before the event, and then come in a second time 3-4 days before the big day. This keeps the area healthy, and will give you a much nicer experience. If you REALLY can only come in one time, then come in at least 5 days early just to be on the safe side.
My friend got a Brazilian and it took skin off his scrotum. Is that to be expected?
ABSOLUTELY NOT! 99.9% of the time, that can be traced back to an inexperienced (or cheap) waxer who uses the soft, sticky wax on the scrotum. I am a very experienced waxer and I use only the highest quality hard wax on the genitals.
What kind of men get wax?
All sorts of men. I have male clients ranging in age from 18 to 70. Some are married, some are partnered up, some are recently divorced. Some are athletes (body builders, cyclists, swimmers). Some are couch potatoes. I have male Brazilian clients who are firefighters, construction workers, doctors, accountants, salesmen, insurance agents, teachers, computer geeks…..you name it.

HOW SHOULD I TAKE CARE OF MY SKIN AFTER WAXING?
After waxing, avoid tanning and extended sun exposure
for 48 hours. You will want to avoid hot showers or baths, sauna and steam room
use immediately following the service. Scented lotions, perfumes, or colognes
should be avoided for 48 hours.
Don’t allow direct heat on the skin for
at least 24hrs after waxing: sunbathing, solarium, hot shower, sauna or steam
room use. This can traumatize & burn new skin, as the dead skin layer has
been removed with the hairs during waxing.
We also want the pores to close, not open. Use a tea-tree based oil on the waxed area – it is a natural
antiseptic and will help reduce the likelihood of getting ingrown hairs &
small pimples (follictilitus). Exfoliate with a pumice stone with organic scrub,
but only when the skin has calmed down after waxing and the new growth begins to
penetrate. This could take from 4 to 7 days. Don’t use deodorant, perfumes or
alcohol-based products for at least 24 hours after waxing. It is recommended to
use sun protection lotion for the 1st day after the waxing, to avoid hyper-pigmentation.
If you have questions I haven’t answered on this site, then just pick up the phone or shoot me an email.
*To aid in preventing ingrown hairs, exfoliate beginning 2 days after your waxing session. For continued at home care I recommend exfoliation every other shower or bath.
To soothe and protect the skin, apply antiseptic cream to the waxed area regularly for 3 days following your treatment.
Moisturize the area every day. This will keep the skin supple and help new hairs grow through normally. You may notice a small amount of regrowth after about a week. It can take 2 to 3 treatments for your hair to get on a growth cycle that gives the best results.
Please note - Some slight soreness, small bumps and redness are common and perfectly normal temporary reactions, particularly if this is your first wax. These symptoms should subside over the next few hours and should completely clear within 24 to 48 hours. If you experience persistent redness or irritation, or if you have any questions, please contact me.
Hair must be at least 1/4 inch before it can be successfully removed by waxing; please do not shave between your appointments.
To maintain your new smooth appearance, I recommend regular waxing every 3 to 6 weeks.
