What Is Sugaring You Ask?
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 half 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 hairgrowth 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!
Does It Hurt?
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.
How Long Does My Hair Need To Be?
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.
I Have Been Using Retin-A Or Accutane…Can I Still Get Sugared?
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.
Preparing Your Skin For Treatment
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.
Can I Get Sugared If I Am Under 18 Years Of Age?
Yes, you can. However you must have a parent/guardian with you to sign a waver and that parent/guardian must stay on the premises throughout the service.
Can I Get Sugared if I am pregnant?
Absolutely. Sugaring is 100% organic and non-toxic making it safe for expecting mamas.
