Men’s Waxing in NJ – Post Wax Care

You’ve just had your body waxed, now what?  Men, like women, are turning to waxing to remove unwanted body hair. But whether it’s your back, chest, arms, or shoulders…what happens during the wax appointment is just as important as what happens after.

Many men in NJ are finally discovering why women wax…hair-free, smooth skin for weeks!  It’s one of the many benefits of male body waxing and NJ spas have been busier than ever catering to the growing clientele of men.

What’s important for men to realize is that waxing requires a little bit of care on their part too.  At the spa, it’s up to your wax professional to safely and carefully perform your male body waxing services.  When you leave, it’s up to you to keep the area clean to ensure the best results possible.

Side Effects of Male Body Waxing

Waxing can sometimes produce serious side effects, especially on sensitive skins and in certain medical conditions.  This is why it is crucial that you ONLY visit a reputable, licensed facility with highly trained wax experts.

In highly sensitive skin types, waxing can cause irritation, minor bleeding and development of pustules.  Less serious side effects of waxing include minor inflammation that goes away within a few hours and ingrown hairs.

More serious side effects can occur at the hand of an untrained professional.  Skin burns may occur if the wax is overly heated.  Individuals with very sensitive skin, or those who are on certain medications that cause skin sensitivity (Retin-A) can experience serious tearing of the skin during waxing. It’s important that your wax professional asks detailed questions about your past and current medical history and prescription medications.

Folliculitis is another side effect of waxing, which is characterized by the inflammation and infection of the hair follicles and may require medical treatment. Using anti-septic to clean the area after waxing can help prevent infections like these from happening.

Waxing is especially not recommended for patients of diabetes or people afflicted by varicose veins, as it can cause serious infections. A trained wax professional will ask these questions or have you complete a thorough intake form before your appointment to ensure your safety.

Waxing cannot be performed on chapped or broken skin, or areas with pimples, moles or rashes. People on certain medications like Retin-A, Renova, Differin or Isotretinoin, should also avoid waxing.

The moral of the story; find a highly trained, highly recommended wax professional that works in a clean, professional and licensed facility.

Men’s Post Wax Care

If you want to ensure the best results from your waxing experience, keep the area clean and free of oils, sweat and dirt for at least 24 hours.  Also stay out of the sun for 24 hours as the skin is very sensitive after waxing and could burn easier.

Wash the area with a gentle soap and pat dry after showering.  If you are susceptible to white heads after waxing, you can use an astringent or cleanser with salicylic acid to treat the area.

If you find your skin is a bit sensitive from the waxing, aloe vera gel works great to sooth redness.

But most importantly, stay out of the sun and only entrust a licensed waxing professional to perform any body or face waxing procedures for you.
