How long will the area be smooth and hair free after a treatment?
Typically 3-6 weeks. Every person has three stages of hair growth. Anagen, Catagen, and Telogen. With the sugaring process, all of the hair won’t be in the same growth stage.
We recommend coming every 3-4 weeks for the first few months. This will help the hair grow finer and thinner.
Should I discontinue shaving after my first treatment?
Yes! Shaving will continue to make the hair course and thick.
Why are the first appointments the most IMPORTANT in attaining your end result? "???"
The first three (3) appointments are the most important for your long term results! If you are one that is planning to use body sugaring to soften & reduce your hair growth, it's vital that your first sessions be booked a bit more closely together. This will drastically reduce the overall amount of hair growth. Regular sugaring results in a much less painful but more thorough removal of hair. It has actually led to permanent loss for some clients over time.
How long should my hair be before I schedule my first appointment?
Hair needs to b a at least 1/4 inch long (about the length of a grain of rice) or about 7-10 days of growth depending on how fast your hair grows. If its too long, we will trim it before applying the treatment.
Is sugaring painful?
I don’t know of any hair removal method that is completely painless! Sugaring does tend to be considerably less painful than waxing. The sugar paste will not adhere to living skin and is removed in the direction of the hair growth, to reduce the occurrence of ingrown hairs. This simple trick has another advantage in that there is little to no breakage, giving longer lasting results.
What if I have my period on the day of my appointment?
There is no need to reschedule your appointment unless you feel the need. Simply use a tampon during the appointment. Do keep in mind, that women are much more sensitive to pain during this week.
Can I get sugared while I am pregnant?
Yes, you can! There are absolutely NO toxic chemicals or additives in any of our products. Our sugaring paste contains just three ingredients: sugar, water and lemon juice. It's so natural, you can eat it!
What about people with skin conditions like Psoriasis, Eczema or some form of dermatitis?
These conditions are not an issue for the sugaring process. In fact, the sugar paste has antimicrobial properties that help heal & soothe even the most sensitive skin!
Can I make an appointment if I have been using ACCUTANE?
Unfortunately, you cannot. Accutane is known to cause severe dryness & dehydration which will then cause the sugar to lift or remove skin. It is recommended that you wait 6 months before treatment can be scheduled or resumed.
What about using Retin A or Renova?
It is advised that you wait a minimum of 30 days before scheduling or returning to your sugaring treatments if you are using these products. These products cause a shedding, thinning reaction to your skin, making the sugaring process much like waxing, in that it removes live skin cells.
Are there any restrictions on minor children getting treatments?
There are not any specific laws or ordinances regarding minor children or teens. We do require parental permission and/or accompaniment when treating under age children,
- Run an ice cube over skin to close pores
- No pools, hot tubs, or saunas
- No exercising
- No lotions, creams, oils, or deodorants on the area
- No tanning beds
- No sex, as friction can cause irritation
Exfoliation is recommended 3-5 days after your appointment.
Then again every 2-3 days after.
This helps reduce the risk of ingrown hair.
Stop using AHA products, topical retinol on the area to be sugared one week before.
No lotions or creams on the area to be sugared.
Hair must be grown in at least 1/4 of an inch or about 3-5 weeks of growth.
No sun exposure tanning beds 24 hours before the appointment.
