Sugaring, a gentle alternative to waxing  — Barnham • Chichester • Bognor

Have you ever found waxing unbearable on delicate area's such as Eye Brows, Bikini or Under Arms?  

Sugaring is much less painful, surprisingly so.

Sugaring Hair Removal

- the natural alternative to waxing

  • It takes approx 3 sessions of Sugaring or wax removal to see true results.  

  • Hairs grow back tapered therefore softer.

  • Sugaring weakens the hair so hairs become finer.

  • Sugar Paste is warm not hot so doesn't burn.

  • Sugar Paste is ideal for sensitive skin

  • You will need at least 4mm of growth for 1st treatment - especially if your hair is course from previously shaving or epilating.

What you need to know...

Whilst you have been epilating or shaving you have been creating a random growth pattern.  In your first sessions you will find that hairs you have previously shaved will come through randomly and possibly within days although the hairs we have ripped out by the root will take approx 3 weeks to re appear.  

 

If you cannot bare your legs with shadow growth then leave converting to the Autumn/Winter months.  

 

Waxing should be a regime so make a decision & stick with it either you - shave/epilate or Wax/Sugar.  

Your hairs will be stronger from shaving or epilating for your 1st treatment you will need aprox 4mm length of growth to 'grab' hold of the hair.

The benefits of waxing or sugaring: softer regrowth that eventually becomes very patchy as hair growth become weaker.

It is applied to legs using the traditional Hand Method - no strips required.  Underarms, Bikini & delicate areas are treated with strips purely for comfort.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The benefits of Sugaring over Waxing are plenty:

  • Sugar Paste sticks to the hair not the skin so does not have that 'ripping' sensation.  It has proven to be less painful than wax.

  • It is a flexible product so does not snap hairs as waxing can therefore regrowth is finer than before & less possibility of ingrown hairs. 

  • Sugar paste is only mildly warm you will not have unsightly red marks for days after as so ofen with waxing & no risk of scalding delicate skin.

Sugar Paste - History & Ingredients.

Ingredients:  Sucrose, Aqua & Lemon

 

Sugaring dates back to the ancient Egyptians. Inspired by Alexander the Great, the women of Alexandria considered a hairless body to be the standard of beauty, youth, and innocence. They would remove all of their body hair for their wedding night.

The method of body sugaring used today is very similar but has been modernized for use in today’s spas.

Sugaring is an all-natural form of hair removal that consists of only sugar, water, and lemon. It is very beneficial for the most sensitive skin as it only adheres to dead skin cells, and is safe for clients with varicose veins. Sugar is warmed to body temperature so it will never burn the skin. The sugar paste is applied against the direction of hair growth and removed in the natural direction of hair growth making it less painful.

 

Ouch Factor

Okay, it's still pulling out hair from the root, but most people find it less painful than waxing. Sugaring doesn't stick to the skin as much as waxing, which means less irritation. The upper lip, chest, bikini and genital areas rank as the highest pain offenders.
