Body Sugaring Hair Removal
It is NOT Hot
Our sugar paste is applied at body temperature making it safe for all areas of the body. It is even safe to use over spider veins and non-painful varicose veins. It will NEVER burn you as the sugar paste is barely lukewarm.
It will NOT stick to the Skin
Sugar cannot adhere to live skin. Live skin cells are wet and because sugar is water soluble, it will not adhere to the live skin cells. This means it will only stick to the hair, not the skin, significantly reducing the discomfort of hair removal.
It is also safe
It is also safe to perform sugaring on dry itchy eczema and psoriasis. It is safe enough to go over the same area several times when necessary to extract the shortest and most coarse hairs without causing skin damage and irritation.
It will NOT break hairs like wax can
With our sugaring technique, the sugar paste wraps around the hair shaft making it pliable, while seeping below the mouth of the follicle, lubricating the hair. This makes extraction more complete and gentle. The hair is eased out of the follicle only in the direction of the natural hair growth which helps to keep the hair intact. Because of the direction of extraction the client feels little discomfort.
It is sanitary
The sugar paste is hypoallergenic and non comedogenic. Sugar is antimicrobial and in fact was used in the civil war to treat open wounds to prevent infection and promote healing. One ball of sugar can be used on the entire body. It CAN extract very short hairs – The technique we use only requires 1.5mm or hair growth, this is about 4-7 days after shaving and in some instances practitioners have successfully removed hairs only 2 days after shaving.
Leads to Permanency
After a few treatments, the hair follicle begins to deplete and the hair growth is more refined each time. Because sugar can extract the shortest hair, it is possible to extract hair in the Anagen phase of growth which leads to permanency. With a full circle of care and correct treatment timing you can see superior results after just a few treatments.
It will extract and exfoliate
It will extract and exfoliate the dead skin cells, helping to free ingrown hairs.
Sugaring hair removal or Sugar Waxing is an antique method of hair removal dating back to 1900BC.
It involves the use of a sugar paste (made of sugar, lemon and water) that is applied to the area with the hand. The paste is spread against the hair growth and pulled in the direction of the hair growth.
The sugar paste seeps into the follicle lubricating the hair. This helps remove the hair from the root with less breakage than with traditional waxing. Because the hair is pulled it the same direction of the hair growth, it is less painful than waxing and there are less in growns. The Body Sugaring technique also debilitates the hair growth and overtime it results in finer, sparser regrowth.
Because Sugar paste only sticks to the hair and not the skin, it is a perfect hair removal method for people with sensitive skin as it is far less likely to cause irritation. The Sugar paste is applied at body temperature, it is not hot like wax, and therefore you will never be burnt by Sugar. This factor alone provides for a much more comfortable treatment as the skin is not heated prior to ripping out hair.
Sugar paste is completely natural. It is made from sugar, lemon juice and water. It is applied by hand in the opposite direction of the hair growth. This application ensures that the sugar is able to seep into the follicle, therefore lubricating it prior to removal and providing a much more gentle extraction. After the Sugar is moulded onto the desired area, it is quickly flicked off in the opposite direction, taking with it the hair and the dead skin. You are left with silky smooth skin.
