Once the wax is applied, a cloth or paper strip is pressed firmly onto the wax and then quickly removed against the direction of hair growth. This pulls the hair, along with the wax, away from the skin, leaving a smooth and hair-free appearance. After waxing, a soothing lotion or oil can be applied to soften the skin and reduce any irritation.
Male body waxing can be slightly uncomfortable, especially the first time, as hair is removed from the root. However, the degree of discomfort varies depending on the person and the area to be treated. Regular waxing can slow down hair growth and thin the hair, making the procedure less painful over time.
Men often choose waxing because of its long-lasting results and the fact that the hair comes back softer and thinner compared to shaving.
