Organic Sugaring for Hair Removal
What Is Sugaring?
Sugaring, also known as Persian waxing, is an ancient alternative to waxing and shaving that originated way back in 1900 B.C. Sugaring is completely botanical and safe for the entire body. A typical sugaring session lasts 30 minutes, depending on where you are removing hair. The sugar is applied at body temperature to prevent burning. Unlike waxing, hair is removed in the direction of hair growth. The ideal amount of time between sugaring session is 3-4 weeks.
Our guests regularly ask us whether sugaring is sanitary since the main treatment ingredient is sugar. The good news is sugaring is completely sanitary. Contrary to our intuition, bacteria are unable to breed in a high sugar environment. Plus, there’s absolutely no double dipping during application. Sugaring is also completely safe for guests with diabetes, varicose veins or eczema.
Benefits of Sugaring
During a sugaring session, the sugar removes dead skin cells and leaves behind living cells, resulting in exfoliation of the skin a renewed glow. While sugaring removes hair from the root, many people claim it doesn’t hurt as much as waxing. Our guests have also noticed sugaring leaves fewer ingrown hairs than waxing or sugaring. For a sugaring session, your hair doesn’t need to be as long as it needs to be for a waxing session. In fact, sugaring can remove hair as short as 1/16 of an inch!
