American culture has always dictated a hairless body image for women and now the sleek look is gaining appeal with men. The look that was once macho and manly is now deemed unsightly resulting in many hair removal techniques aimed at the male market.
My name is Donna D. Risos. I’m a licensed and Board Certified Electrologist and owner of Jersey Shore Electrolysis in Toms River N.J. I specialize in permanent hair removal for men and women.
Recently highlighted on ABC’s Regis and Kelly (Mon. 8/28) was hair removal of a man’s back and shoulders. The spa specialist demonstrated the method of hair removal known as waxing. She showed how small patches of hair can be removed with moderate discomfort ultimately revealing a clear smooth back. The audience sighs and claps with approval.
However I couldn’t help but feel the ache of disappointment knowing that it would all grow back in no time and probably even coarser. What a tease. The skin no sooner looses its irritation than stubble appears.
With electrolysis the look would take longer to achieve but the results would be lasting-permanent. Now that would give an audience something to cheer about.
Earlier this summer on the Tyra Banks Show waxing was again the topic as nurse practitioner Jackie Snow of the Woman’s Medical Group in Calif.
talked about waxing and had the audience consider a not previously discussed possibility that STD’S can be transmitted at salons that offer these services.
Consider these facts. The wax is not changed between clients. All body parts are waxed including genital areas. Wax is kept warm facilitating bacterial growth.
In electrolysis extreme attention is paid to client safety. I use pre-sterilized gold disposable probes and instruments are autoclaved. If we can by pass the quick fix of temporary methods of hair removal men and women can truly have permanent freedom from unwanted hair and safety too.
