There is a common misconception that waxing is only for women – however, that is far from the truth. In reality, men can benefit from the same health advantages by getting regular Brazilian waxes just as women can. Similarly, the waxed look is becoming more preferred by men lately as well. Because of these reasons, it is becoming more and more popular for men to make the switch from shaving to waxing as their preferred method of hair removal!
There are a number of benefits of male waxing that you might not be aware of. If you’re a man who’s curious about the options for waxing for men to get rid of unwanted body hair, read on- we’ve got the top three reasons to ditch the razor.
1. Health Benefits of Male Brazilian Waxing
A major benefit of waxing instead of shaving are the health benefits. Waxing is, in essence, an exfoliation of the skin- which in turn helps collagen production. Collagen production is thought to slow down the aging process and boost skin regeneration and gives your skin a healthier and youthful glow. If you’re getting worried about fine lines and age spots, switching to waxing as a hair removal method can have a beneficial side effect of improving your skin.
In addition, waxing technicians remove the hair straight from the root, unlike with shaving (which removes hair from the surface of the skin). This helps reduce the chance of developing painful ingrown hairs- which are common with shaving. In addition to being painful and irritating, ingrown hairs can sometimes even become infected and can result in a need for minor surgery. Risk of infection comes with shaving- every time you shave, you create dozens of micro tears on your skin- regardless of how careful you are or how clean your razor is. If you have particularly sensitive skin, this can be made even worse with regular shaving. Ingrown hairs can be experienced on any area of the body you shave, but as the skin in the bikini/genital area has a tendency to be very sensitive, ingrown hairs may be more prevalent there. This can also cause redness and unattractive bumps.
2. Cost of Brazilian Waxing for Men
Though the health benefits might be your main reason for making the switch, there’s another benefit to waxing that you might not be aware of: saving money. Given the frequency men have to shave, and how often razors need to be replaced to make sure they’re still effective (due to the coarseness of male hair), it can become an expensive routine. A huge benefit of waxing is that it can slow down hair growth, too. Instead of having to shave every other day, waxing can slow down hair growth by up to thirty days, giving you more time to focus on things other than your hair removal routine.
In addition, you can say goodbye to some of the more annoying aspects of shaving- razor burn and the amount of time you have to devote to keeping your hair growth maintained. If you also factor in the cost of other shaving-related accessories (shaving cream, for example) you might find it’s actually a better idea to say goodbye to shaving and make the switch to waxing.
3. Comfort and Style for Men Who Wax
Our male clients tell us that there’s a big reason they prefer waxing to shaving- a waxing procedure leaves you with much smoother and clean skin than shaving. An annoying aspect of shaving is the tiny red bumps that it leaves- even if done with precision, they can be hard to avoid. Post-wax you might feel a bit of tenderness, but overall, waxing reduces inflammation of the skin and leaves it looking much healthier and more youthful. Additionally, the male Brazilian wax will leave your skin smooth and the hair that does grow back will be much less thick.
In addition, it can be nice to have a professional who knows great ways to style and shape your hair. Whether on your chest, pubic hair, nether regions or any other sensitive areas you want waxed, our waxing salon specialists have decades of experience and can style your hair any way you wish. Don’t think of waxing as painful hot wax getting poured on your body either- our specialists make it as painless as possible. Take the time to treat yourself and treat your skin well.
