Sugaring is an ancient hair removal technique, originating in Persia. Sugar paste is all natural, even editable! Made with only (sugar + lemon + water), way better for your skin than the chemicals in waxing. Sugaring is not as painful as waxing, the sugar only adheres to your hair, not your skin (like waxing), this leaves your skin silky smooth without being damaged. During the service, the sugar is applied opposite of hair growth and removed in the same direction of growth. This also makes the technique less painful, avoids creating ingrown hairs and skin irritation. No risks in double dipping, infections or burning like waxing. Making it the BEST hair removal technique for sensitive skin!
Though not painless, Sugaring tends to be considerably less painful than waxing because the paste does not adhere to live skin and is removed in the direction of growth to reduce the occurrence of ingrown hairs. Removing the hair in the direction of growth has another advantage: there is little to no hair breakage resulting in longer-lasting results.
We recommend your hair being at least 1/4 of an inch for optimal hair removal. For most people this is usually around 2 weeks of growth.
Unfortunately no. If you are using Retin-A or any other topical cream for acne on your face we would not be able to sugar anywhere on your face. However ….It is still ok to get any other areas done. If you are on Accutane or have been on Accutane in the last six months we cannot sugar you at all. We are happy to quote you a price for tweezing your brows. It is not recommended to have any areas sugared or waxed when on Accutane as the drug shuts off all of your oil glands. This can cause SEVERE lifting of the skin that could damage and scar the skin.
Please do not use a razor or depilatory creams between appointments as this will interfere with your goal to refine and diminish your hair growth and to have smooth skin. Regularly hydrating and exfoliating your skin between sugaring treatments is just as important as receiving treatment. You will receive the best results if your skin is healthy. Your skin should be clean & dry. Avoid using sprays or lotions prior to sugaring or waxing treatments. Please do not wear any deodorant, oil, or any skincare products on the areas you intend to have sugared. We cannot wax or sugar hair from sunburned skin. Please refrain from wearing tight clothing around the areas that have been waxed or sugared.
Absolutely. Sugaring is 100% organic and non-toxic making it safe for expecting mamas.
It varies from person to person and here's why: There are three separate growth cycles for your hair. On your first sugaring visit, we get the first, second, and part of the third growth cycles of your hair. Once returning to get sugared two or three times, we start getting all three hair cycled out at the same time. As you continue to get sugared regularly, you will be able to go longer periods of time between your sugaring.
With sugaring, your hair will grow back thinner and many clients report a noticeable reduction of hair growth. When choosing body sugaring as your hair removal choice, your first three appointments are the most important. It is important that your first three sugaring sessions are booked fairly close together. If you are planning to use sugaring to soften and reduce hair growth, regular sugaring treatments result in slower growth of hair and is thorough. Many find that sugaring is less painful and in most cases lead to permanency.
Using razors or depilatory cream between appointments will interfere with the goal of diminishing your hair growth. Please exfoliate and hydrate your skin regularly between sugaring visits. Proper aftercare is important for optimal results. You will receive the best results if your skin is happy and healthy.
our first appointment can take between 30 and 45 minutes depending on how long your hair is and if you have been waxing or shaving. Generally speaking, your maintenance appointment will last only 30 minutes or less.
Yes! Sugaring is all natural and generally consists of sugar, lemon juice, and water.
• Our sugar is warm and never hot so there’s no need to be concerned about being burned.
• Sugar wraps itself around the hair shaft making it pliable & gently encourages the extraction of hair deep inside the follicles.
• Sugar is bacteria resistant.
• You will notice how clean and soft your skin feels after sugaring.
To prevent ingrown hairs, we recommend exfoliating daily (begining the day AFTER your appointment) and moisturizing. It is very important to exfoliate and hydrate your skin. If you cannot exfoliate daily, exfoliate your skin at least every 2-3 days to remove dead skin cells and avoid ingrown hairs. Moisturize your skin and hair follicles to keep them hydrated.
Please plan to avoid activities that may lead to excessive perspiration. We recommend avoiding those activities for at least 8 hours. You should not have sex for at least 24 hours. Avoid hot tubs and swimming pools for 2 days following treatment. Your skin is still sensitive. There is an increased risk of developing a bacterial infection with open pores.
