Waxing is a very safe and effective, instantaneous, temporary hair removal treatment.
Waxing will NOT make the hair grow faster or become thicker. Regular waxing treatments can both reduce the density and diameter of the hair growth over time. For waxing to be effective, the hair must be at least 1/4 inch long. The entire body can be waxed safely with exception of the beard and head area. Laser hair removal is recommended for the beard area. The most common side effects from waxing include; slight redness of the skin up to an hour after treatment, ingrown hairs and bumps.
Aftercare is essential following waxing treatments. Specific products and care will be highly recommended by our expert staff for best treatment results and to prevent unwanted side effects as mentioned above.
It is becoming a very popular trend for men to undergo hair removal treatments, at Man Calgary, on their entire bodies. Yes, from the neck down…Smooth Skin Is In!
The most popular areas are: brows, back, chest, genitals (including anal area). Deciding what areas to treat, is a very personal decision and there is no right or wrong answer. Our practitioners will be happy to advise you if you are not sure what areas to treat. Whatever your decision, waxing treatments are temporary and the hair will grow back in no time if you don't like the hairless look.
The method is very simple. First warm therapeutic wax is spread onto the area to be treated, in the direction of the hair growth. Then, a cotton wax strip is placed over the wax and is swiftly removed in the opposite direction. This leaves the skin unharmed and safely and temporarily extracts the hair follicles. Waxing treatments may cause minor discomfort while being preformed. Immediately following the treatment, there should be no discomfort whatsoever.
Firstly, DO NOT SHAVE OR TRIM THE AREA(S) TO BE TREATED. Approximately 3 weeks of hair growth is necessary for best results. Make sure the areas are clean and dry. Do not apply lotions or oils to the skin immediately prior to treatment. You can apply lotions the night before your treatment.
