The quality of the body hair, the thickness and density,  can have an impact on how the physical sensation of the sugaring can feel individually.

First few sessions can also feel a bit more intense depending on individual pain tolerance, however over period of time, consistent sugaring will have an impact on hair quality making it thinner and therefore less painful.

To achieve the most pleasant experience and highest results, we sugar hairs between 2 – 5mm. We will prepare the required areas to this length prior to sugaring if needed in the session.

We recommend for you to scrub the treatment areas a day before your treatment to remove dead skin cells and to avoid ingrown hairs.

Please ensure you have showered and cleaned your treatment areas prior to treatment session.

 Why choose sugaring over waxing?

There are several methods to remove body hair. Two of the most popular options for long term hair removal and smooth skin are sugaring and waxing. In this article we will introduce you to the benefits of sugaring compared to the more traditional and commonly known waxing and how it can be a better option for all genders.

  • 1. How is sugaring different from waxing?
    • The products used in sugaring are 100% natural and will only attach to body hair, and not to skin. This makes sugaring a more gentle option for long term hair removal compared to traditional waxing.

  • 2. Less skin irritation and ingrown hairs
    • Sugaring reduces the risk of skin irritation and ingrown hairs significantly with the appropriate preparations for the treatment. In sugaring, the sugar attaches to body hair only and is removed to the natural direction of the hair growth removing the whole hair by the root. These two key elements combined make the procedure more gentle for your skin.

  • 3. Long term smoothness
    • Sugaring provides longer lasting results compared to waxing. In sugaring the hair is removed with the root intact, whereas waxing can result in hair breakage leaving the root in the skin and causing ingrown hairs. Sugaring enables you to enjoy silky smooth skins for longer.

  • 4. A versatile option
    • Sugaring is suitable for all areas of the body, except for male facial hair removal due to the quality of the hair. Treatment areas can include face, armpits, legs, feet, upper and lower back, arms, chest, stomach, and intimate areas.

  • 5. Gentle treatment for the sensitive skin types
    • Due to the gentle treatment processes, sugaring is a popular option for anyone with sensitive skin issues or a lower tolerance for discomfort.

  • 6. Try sugaring with confidence
    • Sugaring is not just for women – it works well for men too. Men can benefit from sugaring as a great way to manage their grooming to achieve and maintain clean and fresh results. Sugaring has been identified as a better option for waxing due to its many benefits for both women and men- natural ingredients, lower treatment discomfort, longer lasting results, and reduced risk of ingrown body hairs.

Try sugaring and enjoy smooth and soft skin for longer.
