8 Beginner’s Guide to a Male Brazilian Waxing06 August 2019
Well, if you like sexy smooth skin on ladies then guess what, we would like the same smoothness as well. If you like to watch certain “educational” videos online, then no doubt the idea of getting rid of the forest down there has wandered into your mind—promptly followed by “nope” at the thought of searing pain and someone intimately handling your junk. Girls seem to be all over waxing, so does it really hurt that bad anyway?
To manscape or not to manscape that is the question. Is manscaping really becoming more and more popular, you think? Most men call it torture while others call it an adventure. Don’t let the famous scene in that “40-year-old virgin movie” scare you away. A smooth finish will make you feel confident and 10 years younger. We are a unisex salon, so there is no reason to feel uncomfortable or nervous. We do this all the time.
1. DO A LOT OF MEN GET WAXED? WHAT KIND OF MEN DO YOU USUALLY SEE?
YES! and ALL types. Waxing is becoming more and more popular these days and we see men in every walk of life. From college students wanting to get rid of some back hair before heading to the beach, to the newlywed – getting a full Brazilian for his wife. We see athletes who say it makes them more comfortable (such as swimmers, bikers, or even bodybuilders). Young, old, married, single, athletic, you name it!
2.HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
Going to a professional for intimate waxing is obviously more advisable than trying it yourself at home. It would usually take an average of 45 minutes, but give yourself some time to relax and prepare beforehand by arriving 10-15 mins early.
3. HOW DO I PREPARE?
Clean and exfoliate the skin of the areas you will be waxing. Do not moisturise within 24 hours of your planned wax, as dry skin will help allow for a better quality wax experience.
Don’t worry! At Pink Parlour, we invest in your hygiene and ours. For your comfort and confidence, our pre-shower facilities are available to clients before each intimate wax treatment.
Make sure not to shave for at least 3 weeks prior to your appointment as the hairs need to be at least 5mm for the wax to stick. BOOK HERE!
4. DOES IT HURT?
Is the Pope Catholic? Of course, it hurts! But the most important thing to take away here is that it won’t hurt as much as you think it will. The level of pain that you experience depends on the skill of the therapist. An experienced therapist will know how big a portion to wax, where to place the wax, the best pull and how to stretch the skin giving you minimal pain with every rip. Hot wax grips only the hair without tugging the skin. Pain is also reduced as you only feel the pain from the hair roots and not the pain of the skin being pulled as is the case with strip waxes. There have been claims that taking a pain killer or aspirin an hour before helps to reduce the pain, but so far, there has not been any testimonials to prove this works. But it is definitely worth a try if you are fearful. Numbing sprays tend to work only on the surface of the skin.
5. DOES THE HAIR GROW BACK?
The hair will grow back, but you should remain smooth for about three weeks (though everyone is slightly different). The regrowth should be softer and less coarse than if you were to shave, and the more often you wax the longer the results will last. Do not wait too long in between waxing sessions. We recommend waxing every 4 to 6 weeks for minimal pain. Use products like Pink Parlour Boudoir Smooth Bump Lotion, this light cream retards the hair growth, reduces ingrown hair and makes new hair growth finer. The finer hair roots will mean faster and less painful waxing by the next waxing session.
6. ANYTHING I NEED TO KEEP IN MIND WHEN DOING MY BOYFRIEND’S BRAZILIAN?
During the procedure, the therapist will provide you with instructional feedback on how to hold yourself. At no time will the therapist hold you so we will require your assistance.
7. DO YOU HAVE MALE THERAPISTS AVAILABLE?
All our services are strictly performed by professional caring female therapists.
8. WHAT DO I HAVE TO TAKE NOTE AFTER WAXING?
As your pore will be opened after waxing, we discourage swimming, steam bath, sauna and jacuzzi for 24hrs thereafter. By exposing yourself to public water, you may be exposing yourself to bacteria that may lead to infection of the hair roots. Wear boxers and loose-fitting pants. Loose, soft clothing will feel much better on freshly waxed skin than tight-fitting clothing. For proper aftercare, we recommend our Soothing lotion which will help to heal open pores, prevents infection and stops itching.
9. WILL I BE SORE AND UNABLE TO WALK NORMALLY AFTERWARDS
No, you will be walking as per normal. Boyfriend’s Brazilian waxing causes only instantaneous pain the moment the wax is being pulled. The pain will not linger on especially if hot wax is used. You should not experience any soar or discomfort thereafter. Some redness may occur with people with sensitivity or very thick hair, but this should go away after a few hours.
