Questions & Answers (or FAQ for those who don't know)

What do I do to prepare?
BE CLEAN! At least have the courtesy to wash the bits you are going to ask your therapist to wax. They can deal with skid marks, but not swamps. And wash under that foreskin because your therapist can only hold his breath for so long....

Don't exfoliate. It plays havoc with the wax and you'll be there all day and very uncomfortable. Your natural oils are a great protector.
What do I wear to my treatment?
Something not too-tight. You don't want to irritate your skin more than you have to. Wear something loose and cottony. Jeans are no good. Comfort is key.
Will it stay red for long?
No. Redness resulting from waxing goes within a couple of hours. If it doesn't, see your physician.
How often do I have to wax?
Every 4-6 weeks. Your therapist needs at least 5mm of hair for the wax to adhere to. Some men go every 3 weeks for a back wax. Others every 2 months. The more regular, the better. Young hairs come out easier.
Does the hair ever stop growing?
Yeah! After a few years of constant waxing you will notice a reduction in the hair growth, but this varies from person to person.

Seriously... As per the 'old people' who used Pumice stones to rub off the hair on their legs before razors became so cheap and safe, hair eventually stops growing.
Does it hurt?
Yeah, it hurts! But everyone'se pain threshhold is different, so maybe not you. Anyway, we've covered this under "Pain" on the What 2 Expect page. Go there... Cheers!
Can I wax my nose and ears?
Yep and it's much better than a tweezer and those one-hair-at-a-time tears.

Somewhere some person made a rule that read: "Never wax your ears or nose". Utter twaddle! We bet this person did not have long black hairs sprouting from the tops of their ears or fanning out from the earlobes to make them look like a hairy monster that glows with an orange halos when they stand against a sunset. You can (wax), and we do. Soft wax does a great job.

And noses... we are not talking about sticking Soft wax all the way up your nose to your sinus cavities. No, we're talking about Soft wax on those horrible hairs that stick out your nostrils. A dollop on a cosmetic paddle-pop stick does a great job of removing these unsightly passion killers. Ask your therapist if he/she KNOWS how to do it? Don't be a guinea pig... If they haven't, don't...

For the downey-type of hairs on the ears, rather use a commercial hair remover. Wipe it on and get in the shower... DONE!
Is the sex better after waxing?
Hell YES! Its skin on skin bud! .... Go figure!
Do I have to take my clothes off?
It's advisable, uless you want wax all over your clothes. Imagine trying to wax your scrotum and you're still wearing your designer tighty-whiteys?

But you don't HAVE to if you are only doing your eyebrows... You can keep your T on if you're only waxing your shaft and crack... If you don't care either, drop it all... Whatever you're comfortable with. Your therapist has seen it all.
What if I get a woody?
(Erection/Fat for those who don't know)
So what? It says nothing more about you other than it works. Unless it does....

Therapists are professionals. They are not there to play with it but to remove the hair from it.

It's actually better if you do (get a woody) because the skin is tighter and it hurts less with the the endorphins..... You get the picture?

Seriously... during the waxing procedure, therapists constantly pull the skin tight over the areas they are working on. This ensures the follicles are close to the surface of the skin making the procedure easier on you and for them.
Suntan/Sunbake?
NEVER get waxed after you've been in the sun too long! Your therapist will throw you out!
Contageousness?
NEVER perpetuate your problems on others. If you suspect you contracted something before your appointment that can be tranferred through touch, do the right bloody thing and cancel! Your therapist might spot something and then throw you out!
Skin conditions?
A therapist will never wax over moles, vericouse veins or any funny-looking 'things' on your skin. If there are too many of them they will throw you out!
WARNING! Anti-Acne Drugs

"I have been on an anti-acne drug called Doxycycline and cream called Epiduo. How long do I have to be OFF this medication before I can get waxed?"
A: 6 (Six) Months

WARNING!
You really need a PROFESSIONAL to do your sensitive areas. If you are not happy with the way they do things, stop them and walk away. You're the client and it's your body.
A really good back, butt and crack wax.
What's better, a Brazilian or a Hollywood wax?
There is no 'better'. It all depends what hair you want to be without. It is a personal preference.
What is a BSC?
Back, sac and crack.... This is what most men have waxed. It includes removing the hair from the tops of the shoulders, the back and a Brazilian.
What is a Brazilian?
The hair from your shaft, the scrotum and as much of your pubes as you want, are removed.
What is a Colombian?
Same as for the Brazilian, but all the pubic hair is removed as well. Some men remove their pubes up to their "speedo line" (where your top elastic of your budgy smugglers or tighty-whiteys go (speedo or brief for those who don't know) while others go to the naval. Still others go up to under the chest to get rid of the 'garden path', but now we're getting to the chest and tummy wax areas. Another story altogether....
NOTE: About names and terms
Terms mean different things in different countries and can vary from therapist to therapist. It is safest to explain what you want done and let the therapist put a name to it. Never assume therapists knows what you want done. Always tell them unless you want an opinion in which case you must ask them to suggest something.
A waxed stomach and chest.
Can't I have laser treatment?
Of course you can... Not so expensive these days and you have to go more than a few of times, paying every time... AND it also hurts... AND it does not work on blond or grey hair.... Ditto for guys with dark hair and dark skins (unless they use a broad spectrum laser)

If you're considering going that route, do it before you go grey!

Laser treatment IS very effective, and it IS permanent... VERY good on facial hair!
