Q.) Why Sugar and not wax?
There many advantages for choosing this method over waxing or any other form of epilation.
- Advanced technique Body Sugaring extracts hair at 1/8 of an inch or less.
- Won't break as many hairs and is more hygienic
- Leads to permanency
- Lukewarm temperature, never hot so there is no risk to burning the skin
- Water soluble and does not stick to live skin cells
- Pure and natural ingredients
Q.) How does sugaring differ from waxing? Alexandria Professional sugar paste is molded on the skin against the direction of hair growth. It is then extracted with the direction of hair growth causing less breakage, less pain, less ingrown hair, less skin irritation and exfoliation of the skin. Wax is heated to a very high degree. This causes swelling of the tissue and pain to the skin. The Advanced Technique paste is applied at room temperature, so the Practitioner never runs the risk of burning the clients skin.
Q.) Do I need to grow my hair long like I do with waxing?
NO! Advanced technique Body Sugaring extracts hair at 1/8 of an inch or less. If you typically shave, wax or use other hair removal methods, book your sugaring appointment when you hair growth is 1/8 of an inch and feel the difference sugaring can make for you!
