Sugaring and Waxing

Waxing is a method of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for two to eight weeks. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, bikini area, legs, arms, back, abdomen and feet. There are many types of waxing suitable for removing unwanted hair.

Waxing is accomplished by spreading a wax combination thinly over the skin. A cloth or paper strip is then pressed on the top and ripped off with a quick movement against the direction of hair growth. This removes the wax along with the hair. Another method utilizes hard wax (as opposed to strip wax). In this case, the wax is applied somewhat thickly and with no cloth or paper strips. The wax then hardens when is cools, thus allowing the easy removal by a therapist without the aid of cloths. This waxing method is very beneficial to people who have sensitive skin.

Sugaring can be less painful than waxing, because the substrate sticks to the hair without attaching to the skin, may be applied at room temperature or heated to a lukewarm temperature, preventing burning. Nevertheless, there is some risk of skin irritation, sensitivity, and reaction.

About our treatment

Prior to the treatment the area is cleaned and then powder is applied to help adhere the sugar or wax to the skin. Afterwards a cloth is used to remove all excess wax or sugar and a soothing cream is applied. Some redness may occur and could last up to a few days. It is recommended that you stay out of the sun and tanning beds, also the hot tub for at least 24 hours. Excessive perspiring or working out is not recommended also for 24 hours. Depending on your hair growth you should expect hair free smooth skin for at least 2 weeks.
