Body Sugaring is an ancient art of hair removal using a completely natural paste made from lemon, sugar and water. It looks like honey, but thicker. The paste is molded onto your skin against the direction of the hair growth, then quickly flicked off—removing the sugar paste, extracting your unwanted hair and collecting dead skin cells.  This ancient hand technique that allows for the hair to be extracted in the direction of its growth means less breakage and discomfort for you. 

 

Why we prefer sugaring over regular waxing:

  • Hair can be removed at 1/8″ — which normally only takes about 7-10 days of growing (half the length needed for waxing)
  • All natural ingredients and safe for sensitive skin types
  • Doesn’t stick to live cells, eliminating the pain and discomfort that comes with regular waxing
  • Gently exfoliates dead skin cells for smooth skin
  • Regular extraction at an  1/8″ (the Anagen Phase of hair growth)  leads to permanent hair loss. When hair is extracted at this length it pulls some of the follicle wall out with it each time, eventually causing it to weaken and collapse. 
  • Done at body temperature, no need for heat means no burning your skin
  • Hair is removed in the natural direction of growth which eliminates breakage, unnecessary discomfort, irritation and ingrown hairs
  • Eco-friendly and biodegradable
  • Sanitary and individually portioned—no double dipping sticks!
  • Exfoliate at least 3 times a week
  • Let your aesthetician know if you are taking any blood thinners, Retin-A, Accutane, or any similar products
  • Stop taking any topical acne or skin lightening products one week prior to your sugaring appointment
  • Take ibuprofen (Advil) 30 minutes prior to your appointment
  • Wear breathable clothing
  • Relax during your service, tense muscles will make the area more sensitive
  • DO NOT take extremely hot showers after sugaring
  • DO NOT shave between sessions—this will make your hair harder to pull at your next appointment and will result in breakage
  • DO NOT exfoliate for 24 hours after sugaring
  • DO NOT work out for 24 hours after sugaring
  • DO NOT tan for 24 hours after sugaring
  • DO NOT wear tight clothing after sugaring
