What is Sugaring?

Sugaring hair removal, also known as Sugarwax, is a traditional method that has been used for centuries. The technique involves a skilled application of sugar paste directly to the skin, which is then expertly molded and quickly flicked off, removing unwanted hair in the process. This method uses sugar paste that is 100% natural and organic, making it a gentle alternative for hair removal.

What are the terms that are used for Sugaring?

Sugaring is a form of hair removal that is often confused with waxing due to similar functions, leading to terms like sugar wax, sugaring, sugar, or wax being used interchangeably. Despite their similarities in purpose, sugaring and waxing are distinctly different methods. Sugaring uses a natural, paste-like substance made primarily from sugar, which adheres to hair without sticking to the skin, whereas waxing typically involves resins and can adhere to both skin and hair.

How does Sugaring work?

The sugaring paste I use is designed to be used at room temperature, gently warming up with the heat of the body. This thick, warm mixture is applied against the direction of hair growth and then smoothed along the direction of growth using just the hands. It is then quickly flicked off in the direction the hair grows, effectively extracting hairs right from the follicle. This method ensures a thorough removal while being gentle on the skin.

Is there anything I should do to prepare for my Sugaring session?

Absolutely! For optimal results, it’s best to exfoliate the area 2-3 times a week. We offer a specially formulated soap and a mitt that provides superior exfoliation compared to conventional store-bought loofahs. Additionally, it’s important to moisturize the treated area between sessions. Proper hydration helps the hair to grow in a manner that allows the sugaring paste to grip and remove it more effectively, enhancing your sugaring experience.

Sugaring paste can be applied over missed hairs

The sugaring paste I use is exceptionally gentle, allowing for reapplication over areas that may have missed some hairs with minimal irritation. Surprisingly, while the hair removal results are initially temporary, they can become permanent over time with consistent sugaring treatments every 3-4 weeks.

Sugaring hair length should be 1/16th of an inch or the length of a grain of rice when Sugaring

When considering the “ouch factor,” many find sugaring to be less painful than traditional waxing. This is because sugaring doesn’t adhere to live skin cells like wax does, resulting in less irritation. However, areas such as the upper lip, chest, bikini, and genital regions are generally more sensitive. With Alissa’s advanced techniques, you can expect a minimally painful experience, ensuring your comfort throughout the treatment.

Why choose Sugaring hair removal?

Someone experienced can do sugaring quickly with the paste. Large amounts of hair can be removed at once with a fast finish.  It is an easy cleanup without a waxy residue.  Finally, the paste is water-soluble, meaning you can clean off any residue left on the skin with plain water, unlike regular wax.

Should I moisturize the day of my Sugaring Treatment?

No.  Please cleanse and gently exfoliate the treatment area on the day of your appointment.  Do no use lotion or oils on the skin as the sugar can not adhere to the hair follicle for proper hair removal. 


About Brazilian Sugaring

Brazilians top the list as the most popular treatment we offer, and here’s why. Professionalism and a skilled approach make all the difference. If you’re wondering about the pricing, the initial session is priced higher because it includes a comprehensive educational segment. I take extra time to conduct a thorough intake and guide you meticulously through your first treatment. Often, first sessions require more time due to the detailed techniques involved. I’m committed to ensuring you feel comfortable and unhurried.

For ongoing maintenance, I encourage visits every 3-4 weeks at a reduced rate, applicable only for full Brazilian treatments. Keeping the hair at about 1/4th of an inch allows for a quicker and more comfortable session for both of us, creating a smoother experience all around. This approach not only enhances efficiency but also your comfort, making it a beneficial arrangement for everyone.
