the art of body sugaring
Sugaring is an alternative for waxing which is has better end results, making your skin smoother and silky and can last up to 3-4weeks depending on your hair follicle growth. We carry all natural and organic Sugar paste, which is a combination of sugar, water and lemon warmed only to body temperature to prevent any burning. Sugaring clients experience no post-treatment skin irritation, longer-lasting results, minimal pain and will eventually result in diminished hair growth.
CLIENT QUESTIONS/HOME CARE INSTRUCTIONS:
How does body sugaring work? The warmed sugar paste is molded onto the body area several times using a gloved hand, as this is being molded the sugar paste is able to melt into the hair follicle allowing an easier, gentle extraction from the root. With a flicking motion the hair is gently taken out of the follicle by the root.
Is it going to hurt? Sugaring is removing the hair by the root, so you will feel the extractions. Many clients think it feels like a "mini massage" as the sugar paste is being molded, and they find it very relaxing.
How long does it last? Rate of hair growth depends on the individual person. Expect to be ready for another sugaring within 3 to 4 weeks. Hair can be extracted as short as 1/16th inch. For quicker diminished hair growth, do not allow to get any longer than 1/8th inch.
What should I do before appointment: No sun tanning prior to treatment. Avoid stimulants like caffeine. Keeping skin exfoliated and hydrated is important. However, DO NOT EXFOLIATE the day before or the day of treatment.
What I should do after my appointment: You may feel a little sensitive. Avoid any creams, lotions, or deodorants with artificial fragrances. Do not use any products at least 24-48 hours prior to treatment, as this can cause more sensitivity.
