There are certain techniques that the therapist will use to ensure that your mens waxing session is as pain free as possible. Firstly the qaulity of the wax can make a difference. At Genco we use Lycon strip wax which is recognised as the best wax available. Secondly, our therapists pay attention to the details when conducting a male back or body wax. Our therapists ensure that the skin around the area where the wax strip is placed, is stretched (by the therapists free hand). This ensures that the strip pulls on the hair and not the skin itself, which is the main cause of pain. Thirdly, our therapists are trained to pull the strip carefully always keeping the wax strip at the right angle to the skin all the way till the whole strip has been pulled away. Again, this ensures that hair is being pulled out by the wax and not the skin. We also try and use simple distraction to keep your mind off the pain you may feel, for example reading a magazine or newspaper during your back waxing session can work wonders.
