What is Sugaring?
Sugaring is a 100% natural semi-permanent hair removal treatment. It is commonly preferred over waxing because the hair can be removed at a shorter length of growth, allowing for better long term results. Some clients even say that sugaring is less painful then waxing. The practitioner will remove the paste from the container with a clean, gloved hand. The paste is then spread against the natural direction of growth, and removed with the direction of growth in a swift flicking motion. This ensures little to no hair breakage. Body Sugaring is gentle, and will only adhere to dead skin cells and hair.
After the treatment both the paste, and the glove are discarded. It is warmed only to room temperature making it safe for Diabetics or those with varicose veins.
