Waxing…. That one word that can strike fear in men, creating a vision of horror! Men envision the ripping off of flesh and pain.  However, it doesn’t have to be a Horror flick.  Wax grooming is something that most men could benefit from. Men have the option of waxing several areas.

 

Nose

Men tend to have larger nostrils and more of a propensity for hairy nostrils. As a result, they often benefit even more from nose hair waxing than women. Another benefit is to define a line between facial hair and nose hair, so you can prevent that unattractive blending of the two. Surprising it is virtually painless.

 

Beards

Men who have beards and like that crisp clean edge can achieve this with waxing.  In addition, waxing decreases ingrown hairs and razor bumps as well the ease the need to shave as frequently because it removes the hair from the root. 

 

Backs/Chests

Unable to reach your back or shoulders? Waxing these larger areas is clean and efficient.  We do the work for you. Shaving can leave your skin itchy and irritated. When waxing you will experience a minor sting and the skin may be red for a couple of hours however, the skin will be far less irritated and smooth.

 

One important point to make is there are many different kinds of wax. Not all wax is necessarily created equal. We predominantly use a high quality hard wax. It is more universal and has a propensity to effectively take off coarse dense hair with less discomfort. Soft wax tends to pull at the skin, making it more uncomfortable. This wax is better suited for soft, downy, peach fuzz like hair. We are experts in waxing and ensure our wax and technique are of the highest quality to make you as comfortable as possible.

 

Still nervous? Try waxing a small patch or do only a single area such as your nose. This approach is usually less intimidating and allows you to get a sense for just how a wax actually feels. Afterward, you’ll have to switch up your routine just for a day.  You will need to avoid working out/sweating. Heavy sweating immediately after a wax will irritate the pores which are still open due to the wax. Clogging these pores with sweat will cause you to breakout with acne. Better to take the day off then trade your hair for acne….

Men need pedicures too!

Today’s society is appearance driven for both men and women. Women are no longer the only people wanting to look younger and well maintained. Men are working later in life and are faced with a competitive workforce. The days of just a razor, hair gel and dumbbells are gone. Men are seeking the treatment room. The Top 5 minimally invasive procedures for men are Botox, Microdermabrasion, Laser Hair Removal, Chemical Peels and Laser Skin Resurfacing. Men are also seeking general grooming such as pedicures, manicures and waxing. Feet take a beating with standing on them all day long. They are a breeding ground for bacteria, dead skin and calluses. Your feet carry stress too.

Ask yourself: When was the last time you trimmed or really cleaned beneath your toenails? When did you last scrub the bottom of your feet to get rid of any dead skin or calluses? It is easy to think of pedicures as a fluffy spa indulgence—but most importantly they are relaxing and necessary for foot health! You should also take into consideration the hygienic benefits of actually paying close attention to your feet. Benefits of a pedicure include:

       Improves foot health

       Reduces bacteria

       Eliminates foot odor

       Prevents ingrown toenails

       Relieves stress

       Improves the look and feel of your feet

What separates Schenden’s Medical Day Spa from the standard nail salon is that we provide a private room for a relaxing treatment. Men are sometimes intimidated or embarrassed to go to a salon or spa that has rows of pedicure chairs filled with women. At Schenden’s Spa you are the only one in the room with your nail technician. Our unique pedicure bed will allow you to recline and place your feet in a footbath. We encourage you to disconnect from every day stress an technology and just relax. Stop neglecting your feet. Call today to schedule your pedicure. Your feet will thank you!
