WHAT IS SUGARING?
Sugar paste, used for hair removal, was originally developed by the Egyptians many centuries ago. Modern day sugar paste is a water soluble product made of sugar, water, and lemon which is designed to gently and efficiently remove hair from all body parts and skin types.
Sugaring is the safest and most superior hair removal technique as it removes the hair from the root while exfoliating the skin. The sugaring process can extract shorter hairs than traditional waxing and with regular treatment by a certified sugarist, clients will ultimately notice less hair return to the treated area, offering permanent results.
Sugar paste is never heated so unlike wax, so it can never burn the skin. Additionally it is water soluble does not adhere to live skin cells so it is less painful and less abrasive than traditional waxing.
Sugaring is safe for sensitive skin, including eczema and psoriasis. Because a new ball of sugar paste is used for each individual client and there are no sticks or strips involved, sugaring is also much more sanitary than waxing.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Please arrive to your sugaring experience 5 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment and make sure to fill out the new client intake form online prior to your service.
It is recommended that you exfoliate the intended area more than 24 hours before the scheduled service, and come with the area clean and dry. Additionally, please do not apply deodorant, lotion, fragrances, or other products to the intended area before your service.
In order to have the most successful sugaring experience it is important to come to your appointment with hair that is long enough. In general, hair needs to be at least 1/4 inch in length, or at least long enough that you could pinch and pull it between two fingers. Typically this would be 4-6 weeks after your last sugaring or waxing OR at least 2 weeks since your last shaving.
The length of your appointment will vary depending on the selected service. Some services, such as an area of the face, takes as little as 15 minutes whereas other services, like a brazilian treatment, can take upwards of an hour. Additionally, an appointment may take more or less time depending on how difficult the hair is to remove. If it is your first appointment, it is recommended that you arrive a little early because it is likely that the service will take the full time that is allotted.
