Visiting an Ottawa Spa Is the Best Way to Tame That Manly Jungle
Unless you’re one of the lucky few men who can make a densely hair-covered body work, or who has a partner that loves the forest of fur from your chest to your toes, then chances are you get annoyed with your body hair. You’ve tried trimming it, shaving it, and maybe even that hair-removal cream that burns your nostrils and leaves the job half-done, and none of these is giving you lasting results. It’s time to man up, and start seeking out men’s waxing in Ottawa. A unisex Ottawa spa that specializes in hair removal can bring you all the benefits of wax without the hassle of doing it at home.
Does It Hurt?
Simple answer: yes. More accurate answer: how much depends on where you get it done on your body, and whether or not you get it done professionally. Popular places for men to wax include the chest, legs, arms, back, and groin, and each is understandably a very different experience, depending on the sensitivity of the skin, and the thickness of the hair. This is why visiting an Ottawa spa that specializes in this service is the best move. Experienced waxing specialists know how to remove the hair as quickly and painlessly as possible. If you are doing it at home, and it’s your first time, it may take longer—and hurt a whole lot more.
Benefits to Waxing
An Ottawa waxing specialist applies warm wax to your skin in the direction of hair growth, and then expertly removes it again by pulling it off using a muslin cloth, pulling against the grain. This removes the hair from the very follicle, unlike shaving, which cuts the hair off at the skin. This means the regrowth will be slower and more comfortable. Because the hair was removed all the way to the root, it can take anywhere from four to eight weeks for it to reappear, as opposed to the stubble that tends to appear within hours of shaving. Hair also naturally tapers—stubble has had its taper removed, making it appear coarser and feel rougher (leading to very itchy regrowth), while the fresh hair that grows in after waxing has its taper, making it much smoother.
Another benefit to waxing in Ottawa is that the wax often pulls away dead skin cells, exfoliating as it goes to provide smooth, hairless skin that you—and the special person in your life—will love the feel of. This smooth skin can also improve the appearance of muscle definition (why do you think bodybuilders go hairless?), make fitted clothes more comfortable, and makes it easier to get that nice, even tan you’ve always wanted. In other words, you’re one step closer to achieving that Adonis-like appearance you’re striving after.
