To Sugar or Not to Sugar:
  • Sugaring is an old truth: as old as the oldest of civilizations. Once an ancient ritual, Body Sugaring is considered an art in North America
  • Sugaring leads to permanency. Clients will notice a decelerated growth and treatments become less frequent as it takes longer for the hair to grow. Eventually, the follicle wall is degraded, and the hair growth ceases
  • Sugaring can remove short, coarse and even the most stubborn of hairs
  • Sugaring also eliminates ingrown hair. By thoroughly easing the hair out by the root, ingrown hair is virtually eliminated
  • Sugar is never applied hot. Rather, it is applied warm and acclimates to the body's own temperature, resulting in a much less painful method of hair removal
  • Sugar is a natural preservative, as well as an anti-bacterial
  • Sugar is 100% natural, and is not tested on animals. It is safe, gentle and effective
  • Sugaring actually improves the skin. By gently exfoliating dulled, dead skin while removing the hair, the skin is left incredibly smooth between treatments



What is sugaring?

 

Using a technique which originated in Egypt, a paste made primarily of sugar is applied to the surface of the skin. The sugaring paste is then removed taking the hair along with it.

 

  
How does sugaring work?

 

The sugaring paste is warmed and then applied thinly to the skin in the direction of the hair growth. Reusable cotton strips are then pressed firmly onto the paste and then sharply pulled back thus removing the hair with the sugaring paste.

 


On what areas of the body can sugaring be used?

 

Practically all areas including eyebrows, upper lip, underarms, legs, arms, stomach, and the bikini line. Men have one exception - they cannot use sugaring on the beard due to a different hair root system.

 
How long before hair regrows after sugaring?

Generally sugaring hair removal lasts between 4 and 6 weeks depending on the level of hair growth. The hair is removed from the root. Repeated sugaring treatments can tend to weaken the hair so it becomes easier over time.

Is sugaring painful?

Some report a slight sting comparable to ripping a sticky tape from the skin. The skin may be red for a while after sugaring but this usually disappears within 24 hours.

Is sugaring safe?

Yes, the ingredients are all natural. Sugaring even has healing properties. Paste solutions which are purchased can also contain other ingredients such as citric acid and gum Arabic.

The citric acid is an astringent which can tighten the skin making hair removal easier and the gum Arabic gives a proper consistency to the paste making it easier to remove.
