FAQ: Sugaring Hair Removal

Why Sugaring?

 

"Its the sweet way to remove unwanted hair"

Exceptional for all skin types, hair textures and skin sensitivities. Using only 100% natural & biodegradable ingredients, Sugaring not only exfoliates the dead skin cells, it removes hair in it’s natural direction eliminating breakage and in-grown hairs making it possible to remove the hair as short as 1/16 inch. This process is never hot, completely sanitary and starts to eliminate the hair follicle with frequent treatments leaving you smooth and hair free ~ Naturally.

 How is the sugar paste applied? The true advanced hand method of Sugaring, uses a soft ball of sugar paste. Your esthetician uses a gloved hand at all times and the sugar is a little warmer than room temperature. The sugar paste is molded into the hair follicle, opposite the direction of hair growth. The sugar paste is then “flicked” in the natural direction of hair growth removing the entire hair from the follicle wall. The same ball of sugar is used for entire area to be sugared.

 

What are the advantages and benefits of Sugaring Hair Removal? Sugar paste contains no chemicals or resins, it is hypoallergenic and safe for all skin types. Diabetics, those with eczema, spider or varicose veins and those prone to breakouts and ingrown hairs after waxing, will benefit from Sugaring. Body Sugaring is sanitary. Sugar is naturally anti-bacterial and contains healing properties. Bacteria does not breed or thrive in sugar. Sugar paste is applied at room temperature so there is never a risk in burning the skin. With this being said, with a skilled and experienced wax technician, you should never be burned with wax either!

 

Body sugaring is water soluble, meaning you can easily clean any residue with plain water unlike regular wax. You will never have a leftover sticky or tacky residue. Again, a skilled and experienced wax technician will ensure you are cleaned properly of all wax residue. Hair can be removed at less than 1/8th of an inch (approximately 2-3 days of hair growth, depending on the person) as opposed to waxing which requires 1/4th inch re-growth. Over time, sugaring regularly during the beginning stage of hair growth (Anagen), the follicle wall will begin to weaken. This causes hair to grow back thinner and finer. Eventually the follicle wall will collapse and will stop producing noticeable hair.

 

According to the nurses at Aesthetics Plus, an esthetic medical training facility, Sugaring has the same success rate as laser, but at considerably less cost. The paste is very gentle and can be put right over an area that was just sugared but missed some hairs, without fear of much irritation. Sugaring does not attach to live skin cells. Sugaring will only take away dead skin cells. If your skin is not already over-exfoliated (using glycolic, Retin A or peels) you do not have to worry about the sugar accidentally removing skin.

 

 

 Aftercare + Maintenance

 

  • Avoid touching the freshly sugared area with your hands.

  • Don't exfoliate the area to be sugared the day before, day of, or day after your sugaring treatment.

  • Avoid sun tanning for 24 hours: The skin will be more sensitive to UV rays.

  • Come to your appointment with clean dry skin, no lotions or oils.

  • *It is very important to exfoliate & hydrate your skin!

  • Gently exfoliate the skin every 2-3 days to remove dead skin cells

  • Avoid loofah because they like to harbor lots of bacteria. Nylon gloves are a good alternative, (they can be cleaned in the washing machine).

  • Don't forget to moisturize to keep the skin and hair follicles hydrated! .
