Sugar FAQ

It is NOT Hot – Our sugar paste is applied at body temperature making it safe for all
areas of the body. It is even safe to use over spider veins and non-painful
varicose veins. It will NEVER burn you as the sugar paste is barely lukewarm.

How Long Does My Hair Need To Be?

Is it painful?

It will NOT stick to the SkinSugar cannot adhere to live skin. Live skin cells are wet and because sugar is water-soluble, it will not adhere to the live skin cells.
This means it will only stick to the hair, not the skin, significantly reducing the discomfort of hair removal.

What if I have ingrown hairs?

It is sanitary – The sugar paste is hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic. Sugar is antimicrobial and in fact, was used in the civil war to treat open wounds to prevent infection and promote healing. One ball of sugar can be used on the entire body.

What if I have eczema?

It is safe to perform sugaring on dry itchy eczema and psoriasis.
It is safe enough to go over the same area several times when necessary to extract the shortest and most coarse hairs without causing skin damage and irritation.

Will I Get Ingrowns?

It will NOT break hairs like wax can – With our sugaring technique, the sugar paste wraps around the hair shaft making it pliable, while seeping below the mouth of the follicle, lubricating the hair. This makes extraction more complete and gentler. The hair is eased out of the follicle only in the direction of the natural hair growth which helps to keep the hair intact. Because of the direction of extraction, the client feels little discomfort.

What are the long term results?

Leads to Permanency – After a few treatments, the hair follicle begins to deplete and the hair growth is more refined each time. Because sugar can extract the shortest hair, it is possible to extract hair in the Anagen phase of growth which leads to permanency. With at home care and correct treatment timing, you can see superior results after just a few treatments.
