What is Sugaring?
Sugaring is a hair removal technique that has been practiced for thousands of years. An alternative to waxing, sugaring uses only natural ingredients and is gentler on sensitive skin.
Benefits of Sugaring:
- Cannot adhere to live skin - no more tearing
- Never heated past room temperature - no more burns
- Pulls with the direction of hair - more hair removal, less ingrown hairs
- Shorter hair growth necessary - shorter wait times in between appointments
- All natural ingredients - no chemical solvents as is typical with waxing
Those who have never experienced the benefits of sugaring will be surprised when they book their first appointment. While no hair removal process is ever "painless," sugaring is much gentler than waxing. If you suffer from ingrown hairs, burned skin or reactions when receiving a wax, try switching to sugaring! Your skin will thank you. Contact Hazelday Spa today to book a sugaring hair removal appointment.
How Long does Hair Need to be for Sugaring?
Sugaring wax can extract very short hairs. Typically, hot waxing requires you to have longer hair. With sugaring wax, your hair needs to be about 1/6 of an inch long. What that equates to is about 2 weeks of growth after your last shave. The first time is always the hardest, but sugaring can stunt the hair growth and it can thin your hair out. The second sugaring hair treatment will be half the time and half the hair. We apply the sugar paste and pull with the hair follicle instead of against it. This greatly reduces irritation and ensures the whole hair is extracted to provide you with a longer time in between waxing appointments. If you keep up with your appointments, about every 4-5 weeks, your hair will remain thin, soft and easy to remove. Avoid spray tans or self-tanning until after your waxing appointment.
Have You Been Sugared Yet?
Advanced Body Sugaring Epilation offers numerous unique and diverse benefits. The most important advantage is very fundamental: the Alexandria technique and sugar paste formulation extracts the hair in its natural direction of growth while the hair is still in the early growth stage (Anagen stage). This eliminates hair breakage, unnecessary discomfort, irritation and ingrown hairs while exfoliating dry skin cells.Book Online
