Service Description

Sugaring is a gentle form of hair removal that is safe for all from teens to adults. The Sugar paste extracts hair in the natural hair growth pattern leaving the skin smooth without irritation, ingrown hairs, and eliminates hair breakage. Sugar paste is made with natural ingredients with no chemical additives or animal testing all natural you can actually EAT it! The paste is water soluble and live skin cells are wet so the paste only adheres to dead skin cells and hair to not cause skin damage or irritation. Sugar paste is hypoallergenic and does not clog pores. No cross contamination as new clean gloves are used for taking out the sugar plus no bacteria growth as the sugar concentration is so high that bacteria cannot breed in the jar. To make sure that your appointment runs smoothly, there are a few things you can do in preparation: -Make sure your hair is at least ¼-inch long — above the size of grain of rice. If it isn’t, you won’t be able to get sugared and you’ll have to reschedule. If it’s on the longer side — 3/4 inch or more — you might consider trimming it shorter, though your technician can also do this. -A few days before your appointment, lightly exfoliate with a buffing mitt or washcloth to get some dead skin cells out of the way. This will help prevent stray hairs from getting left behind. -Avoid tanning or applying retinoid creams for at least 24 to 48 hours before your appointment. -The day of, minimize your caffeine and alcohol intake to prevent your pores from tightening. -Prior to the appointment, dress in loose, cotton clothing for maximum comfort. To minimize pain, take an over-the-counter pain reliever about 30 minutes before your appointment. When Can You Not Be Sugared? You CANNOT be sugared if you are taking Prescribed Retin-A, Retinol, Accutane. Also recommended to wait one week after your mensural period as well as being on antibiotics and or any vaccinations before booking your appointment Areas to avoid also are Sunburns, Inflamed veins, Open sores, and warts.
