Sugaring is a more natural form of hair removal that uses a combination of sugar, lemon juice, and water to create a paste that is used directly on the desired area. Sugaring is often considered less painful than waxing because it does not adhere to the skin, only the hair itself.
Our medical estheticians apply sugar paste directly to the treated area in the opposite direction of hair growth, let it sit for a few seconds to adhere to the hair, and then pull it off in the direction of hair growth.
After your first sugaring appointment, hair growth will not return for about 2-3 weeks. As you continue to sugar regularly, the hair removal will last 5-6 weeks. Sugaring leaves the affected area smooth and luscious with little to no irritation or ingrown hairs. Hair regrowth varies by patient.
