Bodybuilders Shave vs. Mukilteo Waxing

June 14, 2011  

Body Waxing In MukilteoIn many sports, it is advantageous to decrease or even eliminate body hair. For men, those sports include:

  • Swimming
  • Running
  • Bodybuilding

Swimmers and runners can increase their speed with the decreased friction provided by smoother skin. In today’s competitive environment, any edge is a definite plus! With body building, the advantages of a clean body are numerous.

SHAVING VS. WAXING

While a newcomer to the hairless look may prefer to shave, it is important to recognize that not only is the process difficult, the results are short-lived. If you want to clear your back, the procedure becomes even more tricky. Mukilteo Waxing is done by professionals in a private room to allay any fears of exposure. For body builders, the fact that your hard work is best seen on a ‘blank canvas’, the complete hair removal achieved with waxing definitely makes it the process of choice. Considering that waxing can keep your body clear of hair for up to 6 weeks, if you are doing several shows over a period of time, this could eliminate the need for touch-ups. Additionally, each time you wax, the hair becomes finer and thinner, so that each visit is easier. While some athletes do complain of ingrown hairs following waxing, this is an uncommon side effect. Ask any woman that has the choice between waxing and shaving her bikini area. Furthermore, as the hair begins to grow back, the blunt cut edges of shaved areas cause great discomfort and itching (baby powder, anyone?). Since waxed hair is pulled out by the root, there are no blunt cut edges to cause discomfort as the hair regrows.

WAXING FOR BODYBUILDERS

Full body hair removal is mandatory for competitive bodybuilders. Every bodybuilder, professional or amateur, understands that their hard work cannot be seen if obscured by hair. The certified technicians at Mukilteo Waxing are especially mindful of the need to eliminate bumps or redness from the process.
