Does sugaring hurt?
Sugaring isn’t painless. If you have been shaving for a while, the first sugaring treatment hurts the most because the bulb at the base of the hair shaft is enlarged. However, on your second appointment pain is diminished considerably. As you receive more treatments, the root weakens and this makes it easier to remove the hair. While skin sensitivity varies, please remember that we are pulling hair from the skin. Most people experience a slight tingling sensation, not unlike pulling a bandage from the skin. On areas with dense hair distribution, the sensation will be stronger. With regular, repeated treatment, however, the tingling sensation is minimized.
How many treatments until the hair growth diminishes?
Depending on how dense the hair growth is on each individual, it ranges from 18 months for people with light hair growth to 3 years or more for people with heavy growth. Again, this varies from one person to another. The re-growth after a treatment can be removed with as little as 1/8” of growth. Expect to repeat the treatment, on an average every 4 to 6 weeks.
How do I avoid in-grown hairs?
To prevent in-grown hairs you should soak 3 times per week in lukewarm water with a ½ cup of Dead Sea salts for 10 minutes. Exfoliation is key to preventing and eliminating in-grown hairs. We recommend using a dry-brush or exfoliating gloves. Ask your practitioner for suggestions to suit your personal requirements.
How long does my hair have to be?
For best results, new clients should have 2-3 weeks of unshaven hair to see optimal results.
Can I be sugared on my period?
Yes! We’re comfortable with it if you are! Just remember you are more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.
