How long should my hair be before getting sugaring treatment?

For optimal results, we recommend allowing at least two weeks of hair growth in the area you plan to have treated. The ideal hair length for sugaring is between 1/8 to 1/4 of an inch. This allows the sugar paste to effectively adhere to the hair and ensure a thorough removal.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any guidelines regarding sun exposure before and after sugaring?

To ensure the best outcome and minimize potential skin sensitivity, we advise against tanning 24 hours before and after your sugaring appointments. Additionally, it is recommended to avoid extended periods in the sun for 24 hours after treatment. Applying sunscreen to the treated area is highly encouraged to protect your skin.

What should I do if I plan to work out before my appointment?

If you intend to work out prior to your appointment, we kindly request that you shower beforehand. This helps to remove any sweat, oils, or lotions on your skin, which can interfere with the sugaring process and affect the results.

Is there a recommended time in my menstrual cycle to schedule appointments?

To help minimize sensitivity during your sugaring session, we suggest scheduling your appointments after your menstrual cycle. Hormonal fluctuations can make your skin more sensitive, so booking your appointment outside of this period can enhance your overall experience.

Can I receive treatment if I have a sunburn?

If you have a sunburn, we regretfully cannot perform sugaring treatment on the affected area. It is important to allow your skin to heal fully before undergoing any hair removal services. We prioritize your safety and well-being, and it is essential to protect and care for your sunburned skin properly.

Should I moisturize before my sugaring treatment?

To ensure optimal hair removal results, we recommend refraining from moisturizing the area 24 hours prior to your treatment. Lotions can clog hair follicles, making the hair removal process more challenging. Keeping the skin free from moisturizers allows for better adhesion of the sugar paste and more effective hair removal.

Can I soak in a tub with Epsom salts before my appointment?

We advise against soaking in a tub with Epsom salts before your sugaring treatment. Epsom salts have a dehydrating effect that can constrict the skin around the hair follicles, potentially leading to ingrown hairs. For the best results and to avoid any complications, it's recommended to avoid Epsom salt baths prior to your appointment.

Can I use perfumed soaps or moisturizers after my treatment?

For the first 24 hours following your sugaring treatment, we recommend avoiding the use of perfumed soaps or moisturizers. Fragranced products may contain ingredients that can potentially irritate freshly sugared skin. It's best to allow your skin to breathe and settle before reintroducing scented products.

How can I prevent ingrown hairs between treatments?

Regular exfoliation is key to reducing the occurrence of ingrown hairs. We encourage you to exfoliate your skin often between treatments or incorporate dry brushing into your skincare routine. This helps to remove dead skin cells that can block hair follicles, reducing the likelihood of ingrown hairs.

How long should I anticipate for my appointment?

The duration of your appointment will vary depending on the area being treated. Please anticipate approximately 15-45 minutes for your sugaring session. Our experienced estheticians take the time to ensure thorough and precise hair removal, ensuring your satisfaction with the results.

Can you tweeze stubborn hairs during the sugaring treatment?

We do not tweeze stubborn hairs during the sugaring treatment. Our sugaring technique is designed to effectively remove hair from the root using the sugar paste. If certain hairs prove more resistant, we can safely treat the same areas multiple times to ensure complete hair removal.

What can I expect from the professionalism of your staff?

Whether you are having a small area or a discreet area treated, we want you to feel confident and calm knowing that our staff is certified in sugaring and highly professional. We understand that feeling nervous or embarrassed is natural, especially during your first visit. Rest assured that you are in the hands of experts who will explain the procedure in detail and guide you through the entire treatment process.

How often should I schedule sugaring treatments?

For optimal results, we recommend scheduling sugaring treatments every 4-8 weeks between sessions. This timeframe allows for proper hair regrowth and ensures that the sugar paste effectively adheres to the hair for efficient removal. It's important to adhere to this recommended interval for the best long-term outcomes.

Should I apply lotion to the area being treated before my appointment?

We kindly request that you refrain from applying lotion to the area being treated prior to your appointment. Lotions can create a barrier on the skin, making it more difficult for the sugar paste to adhere properly. By avoiding lotions, we can ensure a smooth and successful sugaring session, providing you with the best hair removal results.
