Why Men in Manhattan, NY Choose Body Waxing for Hair Removal

Male body waxing in Manhattan NYC.Men Hair Removal New York

Why do more and more men in Manhattan, New York choose body waxing for hair removal? In the past, men who got body waxed were either gay, models, or athletes (swimmers, muscle builders, etc.) Now, straight and mainstream men are flocking to salons to remove hair from their back, legs, arms, chest, bikini area, buttocks, eyebrows, stomach, and other areas. Many come to our spa for our specialty, Brazilian waxing.

What are the reasons men choose body waxing?

Here are some of reasons why men are turning to body waxing for hair removal:

  • Shaving never quite gets close enough to the skin because it cuts the hair at the hair shaft. This results in stubbles that become visible the same day or the next. In addition, shaving strengthens the hair follicle, making it even harder to get a close shave.
  • Many men simply like a hairless look as part of their self-image, and waxing is the simplest and most effective form of hair removal.
  • Once a waxing regimen is begun, hair grows back finer and more slowly – the exact opposite effect from shaving.
  • There is a much lower incidence of ingrown hairs from waxing.
  • Waxing is a long lasting method of hair removal, as it removes hair from the root. A waxing treatment lasts from two to eight weeks.
  • Waxing makes the skin feel soft and smooth.
  • Many spouses and significant others find their mates’ hairless look extremely sexy and appealing.

What does the waxing treatment entail?

At our Manhattan, NY day spa, we use one of two methods: one method requires paper strips, and the other does not.

For most waxing treatments, we use Azulene wax applied with a wood spatula to the area where the hair is to be removed. Our esthetician then places the paper strips over the waxed areas and quickly and expertly pulls the strip off.

To ensure your health, we strictly adhere to a “no double dipping” policy.  We never dip the wax application spatula into the wax more than once. Our NYC beauty salon and day spa always operates with your health and safety in mind.

There are some skin types and some areas of the body that are more sensitive than others are. In these instances, Dyanna Spa uses Cirepil Blue Hard Wax. When hardened, our esthetician simply peels off the wax.

Although neither hair removal process is pain-free, the more often you wax, the more painless it becomes as the hair becomes finer and sparser with each application.

Thousands of men in New York love their hairless look. If you’ve never experienced hair-free, smooth skin on your own body, schedule an appointment now and give it a try. We think you’ll like it.

ATTN: Men! It’s Time to Shed That Winter Coat!Dyanna Spa NYC for All Your Waxing Needs

For years, men’s grooming has been neglected by the media and let’s face it, a majority of men. But now in 2010, the masses have finally caught up with the importance of manscaping.

With spring around the corner, it’s time for some good old fashioned spring cleaning as well as putting away your winter coats. For men, that’s not as simple as throwing your coats in the attic for the summer, it often means waxing off what you’ve been hiding under your shirt.

Waxing - This year, don’t bother your girlfriend or roommate with the odious task waxing your back, just come into NYC’s Dyanna Body & Nail Salon, which is renowned for its waxing.  And for all you non-believers, here are a few reasons why waxing is better than the alternative:

  1. Hair grows back after 8 weeks, soft and smooth.
  2. No stubble.
  3. And, of course you can also get some hairy designs on your body customized – the upcoming trend after tattoos. (You know you want to).

Mani/Pedi -  No, I’m not suggesting you paint your nails a tropical pink, you don’t have to paint them at all. Manicures and pedicures are more for maintaining the skin and the health of the nails so nasty fungi don’t flourish during those hot summer months. Added bonus: you don’t have to dig your toes into the sand while laying out at the beach!

Electrolysis – Although above I mentioning waxing but for some more sensitive areas (i.e. the Uni-brow) you may want to consider something more permanent for hair removal. Electrolysis is the process in which a very fine probe is inserted into the hair follicle at the surface of the skin and the hair is then removed harmlessly with forceps. It only takes a few minutes and depending on how your hair grows you may not need that many treatments at all. Plus, it really doesn’t hurt so stop worrying!

Waxing 101: What to Expect from Your First Wax from the Experts at NYC’s Top Waxing Salon

One of Dyanna’s most popular beauty services, which has helped it become one of Citysearch’s most recommended salons in New York City is waxing hair removal. Dyanna Spa is best know for the painless, safe face and body techniques performed for Brazilian bikini , back & chest, arms and leg waxing. 

Our NO DOUBLE DIPPING policy ensures that our clients are always getting the most sterile and safe service for the sensitve procedure.

Waxing hair removal is one of the most popular methods of getting rid of body and facial hair. Its’ quite popular because it is:
1) Inexpensive
2) Lasts for several weeks because it starts to slow the regrowth of hair

 

How does waxing hair removal work?

 Wax is spread into a very thin layer over the skin.

Next, a cloth strip is pressed and smoothed over the fresh hot wax. The skin is then pulled back tautly with one hand while the other hand pulls the cloth strip off in the direction opposite to that of which the hair grows. In this process the hair and dead skin cells have been removed with the wax and you are left with smooth hairless skin.
What body areas can be waxed?

It is advisable to test a small area of skin to wax to test the skin’s reaction to the removal but generally any area of the body can be waxed.  The real exceptions are the male genitals, nipples, inside the ears and nose and eyelashes.

 

 How long will it take for hair to reappear?

Often it takes between 3-8 weeks for hair to regrow.  The hair should grow back with a finer appearance and less of it.  Over a period of time, the hair may stop growing back altogether.

Most popular waxing services at Dyanna Spa include:

  • Bikini
  • Brazilian Bikini For Men and Women
  • Leg
  • Arm
  • Underarm
  • Back (men)
  • Chest (men)
  • Above Lip
  • Chin

Why Trust Dyanna Over Other Salons for This Procedure?

Dyanna has very strict policies when it comes to waxing hair removal.  If waxing is not done correctly, it can be extremely painful and leave irritation, ingrown hairs, and in some extreme cases even scars. For this reason, Dyanna’s waxing professionals are experts in the field, each staff member having at least 10 years experience with waxing.

  • We have a firm NO DOUBLE DIPPING wax policy, meaning that all equipment used on an individual is used ONLY on that individual and then discarded. This ensures cleanliness and prevents infection from occurring in freshly waxed areas.
  • We take disinfecting pre and after care precautions by applying antiseptics such as Seabreeze, to cool sensitive areas and help you heal quickly and painlessly. Astringents are applied prior to hair removal as well to ease pain, making your experience at Dyanna as pleasant as can be.
  • We recommend daily exfoliation of the area to help prevent ingrown hairs after the first 48 hours.
  • Hydrocortisone cream may be used after any hair removal treatments to help reduce irritation & inflammation, as long as you have no medical reasons prohibiting its use. feel free to ask your specialist to apply some hydrocortisone cream before you leave. you may also reapply the cream at home that evening if you feel any further irritation. hydrocortisone cream can be found at your local drug store.

Please note: Before scheduling your first waxing appointment, you need to be aware of some health precautions.
Health precautions with waxing hair removal:

  •  Some doctors do not recommend hair waxing for people that have diabetes, varicose veins or poor circulation since they may be more susceptible to infection.
  • Also people who take some medications such as: Renova, Differin or Accutane are advised to steer clear of hair waxing on the face since these medications tend to weaken the skin and may cause tearing of the skin as the wax is removed.
  • If your you have warts, pimples, moles, rashes, sunburn, chapped skin or skin irritation, you should avoid waxing those areas.

Please feel free to call us to see if waxing is right for you at (212) 995-2355 or book your appointment right online at   http://dyannaspa.com!
