Not nearly as much a regular waxing! Unlike bikini waxing that pulls hair against the natural growth, the sugar Paste lubricates the follicles and gently slides the hair out in the natural direction of growth, so there is no pulling on the skin and hair breakage. That means no more ingrown hairs with proper post skin care. Regular advanced body sugaring treatments reduce the hair growth rate and that means less hair, fewer treatments and decrease in any discomfort.
What is a bikini treatment for a man?
Most men do not refer to their pubic region as bikini, so the current term is manscaping. The treatment uses the sugaring paste to remove excess hair the areas not covered by a speedo swimmsuit. Like women, some men experience excessive hair growth and, for aesthetic or medical reasons, prefer the hair to be removed or nicely groomed.
I am a woman interested in removing facial hair, Can it be used on the face?
Is sun tanning an issue following Advanced Body Sugaring?
Regular sugaring treatments can actually enhance and brighten your tan. Your skin may sunburn more easily immediately after a sugaring treatment due to dead skin cell exfoliation. We recommend you wait 24 hours before exposing your skin to sun, infra red lamps or solarium. Please do not come to a treatment with the area sunburned or freshly spray tanned.
Is it true sugaring hurts more when you have your menstrual cycle?
We suggest you do not schedule your appointments to coincide with your menstrual cycle. Some women are just more sensitive at their time of the month, but individual results vary. Many women have no issues with sugaring during menstruation.
Also avoid taking caffeine right before a treatment as it can make you more sensitive and cause discomfort.
Can you sugar someone who uses Accutane, Retin-A or AHA peels?
Typically, after 4 weeks after stopping usage it is a safe time frame, but a patch test is always done to ensure skin is not too thin or fragile.
How often do I need a treatment?
Your practitioner will be able to help you schedule your appointments best based on your individual hair growth patterns and body part(s) treatment. It is optimal that hair growth should not exceed 1/8”. In the beginning it is common to need a treatment within 3 to 5 weeks of your service.
There are four phases to hair growth and we want to remove the hair at the second phase (Catagen) in order to get longer lasting results, and to weaken the follicle the most. It may take a few treatments to get most of your hair growing at the catagen phase at the same time.
How should I prepare my skin for my treatment?
We ask that you arrive to your appointment with clean skin without lotions, deodorants or oils. Never use a razor, depilatory creams or tweezers between your treatments, as this will interfere with your goal to refine and diminish your hair growth and to have smooth and healthy skin. Regularly hydrating and exfoliating your between sugaring treatments is just as important as receiving the treatment. You will achieve the best results if your skin is in a healthy condition. Your practitioner will consult with you on how to maximize your results.
How young can I start my child sugaring?
The best age to start the Advanced Body Sugaring treatments is at puberty. We encourage you to start Body Sugaring treatments instead of shaving when your child is ready to begin the hair removal process. We are always available for a consultation and demonstration, so that the process is comfortable. Many of our clients share the experience with their children and you can book a mother daughter or father son treatment together.
