What is body sugaring?
Body sugaring is and ancient Egyptian form of hair removal using a 100% natural paste of sugar, lemon, and water. Our freehand method is safe and hygienic for all skin types as the sugar paste is never re-used.
Your technician will apply the sugar paste by hand against your hair growth so that when the hair is removed in a flicking motion it's pulled out by the follicle in the direction of hair growth. This drastically reduces the occurrence of hair breakage, painful ingrown hairs, and also allows us to remove smaller, harder to grab hairs.
Pre and post sugar care
Sugar paste is safe for all skin types, even the most sensitive! Since the sugar never adheres to live skin cells only the dead
cells will be removed, acting as a gentle exfoliation. Which is why we ask that you not exfoliate your skin the day before your service. You should also avoid using any creams or lotions on the day of your appointment.
Between sugaring appointments it is important to keep the sugared areas exfoliated and moisturized. Ask your technician what exfoliation and moisturizing system would be best for you.
How long does it last? Rate of hair growth depends on the individual person. Expect to be ready for another sugaring withing three-six weeks. Hair can be extracted as short as 1/16th inch. For a quicker diminished hair growth, do not allow it to get any longer then 1/8th inch.
What should I do before my appointment? No sun-tanning prior to a treatment. Keeping your skin exfoliated and hydrated is very important; however, do not exfoliate the day before or after a treatment.
What should I do after my appointment? You may feel a little sensitive. Avoid any creams, lotions, or deodorants with artificial fragrances. Do not use any products with hydroxyl acids for at least 24-48 hrs. This could cause more sensitivity.
