Manscaping: What Men Need to Know About Waxing

Over the years, manscaping has increased in popularity. An estimated 50-70% of men are trimming, shaving, tweezing, plucking, and waxing hair off their bodies.

At Natural Body® Spa & Shop, we’re expert estheticians who can manscape your body from head to toe so you can look and feel your best. Although we can take multiple approaches to remove and manage hair on your body, waxing might be the right choice for you if you don’t want your hair to grow back for a while.

What to know about waxing

When compared with other manscaping options, waxing helps you achieve the most smoothness for the longest period of time.

For men, the most popular areas for waxing as part of strategic grooming include:

Our services also include serums that help you avoid ingrown hairs and soothe your skin.

How waxing works

When you come in to see us at Natural Body® Spa & Shop, we consult with you to design the perfect treatment for you. We’re highly trained professionals who offer you the most gentle and expert care. 

Because waxing removes your hair at the root and also the top layer of your dead skin cells, you want to prepare beforehand. 

Ways to prepare include:

To begin the process, we apply warm wax to the targeted area, put pretreated wipes on top of the wax, and then pull it off quickly. You might feel some discomfort, but it leaves quickly.

With waxing, removing hair by the root can invite germs down into your open hair follicles. That’s why after your procedure, you need to apply a bacteria-fighting, soothing product.

To avoid ingrown hairs, exfoliate your skin daily, but wait at least 24 hours after your treatment.

As your hair starts to grow back, you should have less itching with waxing than you do with shaving. Waxing also gets easier with each time you come in to see us because your skin acclimates to the procedure and becomes softer and smoother. 

If you’re ready to get rid of unwanted hair, or create a new look with manscaping, we can help you achieve your esthetic goals.

To schedule manscaping services with our team, schedule an appointment at one of our 10 spas in Georgia and Tennessee. You can also send us a message, and visit our online store, too.
