What’s A Manzilian?
A Manzilian is similar to a female Brazilian and involves the removal of hair from a man’s pubic area and backside. Like a female Brazilian, the estheticians at Bare Elegance Waxing, located in the Costa Verde Center UTC San Diego, are expertly trained to give you the customized look you want.
Why do Men Get Manzilians?
Men get waxed for a number of reasons, including self-image and because their partners prefer a smooth look. Other benefits of waxing are that it lasts much longer than shaving, there is no second-day stubble, and you don’t get razor burn.
How Do You Do a Manzilian?
The hair is trimmed if necessary. Ideally, the hair should be at least ¼” long. Leave the trimming to us! Then wax is applied to a section of the skin where hair removal is desired. At Bare Elegance Waxing, we use a combination of waxes—both hard and soft. The wax used depends on skin type, hair growth, and sensitivity of the area being waxed.
How Long Does A Manzilian Take?
Depending upon the length of hair and the amount of hair removal desired, the average Manzilian takes about 30 to 45 minutes. Be assured, that we walk first-timers through the process before we start so that you are as comfortable with the process as we are.
Does a Manzilian Hurt?
All waxing involves a bit of pain. We recommend taking a pain reliever such as Ibuprofen or Tylenol 30 minutes prior to your waxing if not contra-indicated by your doctor. As mentioned above, we use several types of wax which help minimize the pain. We also apply a customized topical solution afterwards to help soothe the skin and minimize redness and irritation.
What are the side effects of a Manzilian?
Slight redness and irritation may follow your Manzilian wax. As with all waxing treatments, we recommend the following after-care tips:
- Avoid exposure to the sun for 24-48 hours after waxing
- Avoid sweating and heavy exercise for 24 hours after waxing
- Do not use exfoliating products for at least 24 hours
What do I do to make the Manzilian results last as long as possible?
We specialize in men’s waxing and have both pre-wax and after-wax skin care products that are formulated for male hair which is generally more coarse and male skin which is more prone to ingrown hairs. These products are great for maintaining a smooth look for as long as possible and are available for sale in our boutique. Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate (after 24 hours) is key to remaining smooth for as long as possible.
Do you offer trimming services?
Depending upon your hair growth patterns, trimming is often recommended to blend the cleanly waxed areas with adjoining areas that have not been waxed. Our estheticians have been trained in male trimming to complement our male waxing services. We also offer full-body waxing services to go along with the Manzilian including legs, stomach, chest, and back.
