So you have decided to brave the waxing experience. For whatever reason, probably a hot date or your girlfriend or wife is making you do it, you have decided to endure the pain and shame of having your unwanted hair ripped from the follicles of your skin. You break out in a cold sweat at the mere thought of hot wax being smeared on your back, chest and wherever you have unwanted hair. You fear it might be worse than the infamous scene from The 40-Year-Old Virgin.
And you just might be right about that.
If you are a guy and the idea of going to a spa for a wax job can be frightening. The truth is that there are many reasons you should avoid this. A better, safer, less painful solution to your hair problem is laser hair removal at Northern Colorado Laser and Skin in Greeley. And if you cannot convince your girlfriend or wife otherwise, give her these reasons waxing is not the best option.
Having hot wax dripped on your sensitive areas and then your hair yanked out by the roots isn’t anybody’s idea of an ideal spa experience. Think about when you were a kid and your dad ripped that Band-Aid off your arm on the count of two when he promised to pull it off on the count of three. Whatever pain you imagine it will be like, multiply that by five.
You think the scars on your body are cool, but that is because they are basically badges of honor. Just know that waxing often results in bumps, ingrown hairs, pimples and rashes. These are nothing you will want to show off to the guys.
When you wax, there is the possibility that you could get an infection.
Waxing isn’t a permanent solution for your unwanted hair. You have to keep going back and having it done over and over. In addition to the great expense of maintaining your smooth, hairless skin, it is mighty inconvenient having to set aside a few hours every couple of months to get waxed.
Now, maybe you are a bit wary about this whole hair removal thing. There is this misconception that hair removal treatments are only for women. But the truth is that men can benefit from laser hair removal as well.
You’re Not the Only One
You have probably looked in the mirror and wondered if you would look better without the patch of hair on your back or on your shoulders. Besides, you want to look good for your spouse or lady friend, and there is nothing wrong with that.
Other men feel the same way, and many of them have chosen laser hair removal. So don’t go into this thinking you are the only dude getting this type of treatment.
Laser hair removal won’t take up your whole day. And after a few short sessions, you will enjoy permanent hair removal.
Waxing can be especially problematic for men who have sensitive skin. You should know that lasers target hair follicles without damaging or irritating the skin.
No More Shaving
Maybe you have gotten into the habit of shaving certain parts of your body. That’s fine, but it does take time out of your day when you could be doing anything else other than shaving your back.
We cannot back this up with scientific research, but our best guess is that the majority of women probably aren’t too terribly attracted to back hair. It is kind of gross, after all. And don’t you think you would feel better if that hair on your back was gone?
Also, there are other areas in which hair can be quite unattractive. And the best way to rid yourself of this hair is not with wax or a razor, but with laser hair removal treatments.
Unwanted body hair is a common problem that can be a source of distress, even for men. Have that unwanted hair safely and permanently removed with minimal pain and discomfort with laser hair removal at Northern Colorado Laser and Skin. Contact us today for details.
