Sugaring

Sugaring

Sugaring is a gentle, effective and hygienic method of hair removal, which at the same time exfoliates the skin, making it silky smooth. By sugaring, skin hair can be removed from almost all areas and all types of skin. We use high-quality Alexandria Professionals products for sugaring. Sugaring is much more than hair removal. Sugaring removes dead skin cells from the skin and the skin becomes brighter and healthier looking. After sugaring, moisturizers are better absorbed and it is pleasant to apply them on soft, hairless skin.

 

  • Sugaring vs. waxing

    The wax is applied according to the direction of hair growth, after which a fiber cloth strip is placed on top of the wax, which is removed with a quick movement to the opposite hair growth direction. Applying wax to larger skin areas is bit faster than sugar, which is why waxing is often a slightly cheaper option than sugaring.

    The advantages of sugar are its naturalness (Alexandria’s sugar mass is completely natural) and skin friendliness. Sugar is applied to the skin with the fingers, after which the sugar mass and hairs are removed by gently waving the hand. Sugar only sticks to dead skin cells, which is why sugar does not irritate the skin as sensitively as wax, and the same skin area can also be treated many times with sugar. Sugar also adheres well to thin and short hairs, which is why it is also excellent for the face area. Sugar also has the best chance of getting rid of ingrown hairs.

     

  • Preparing for sugaring

    When you come to sugaring for the first time, it would be good for the hair to be 0.5-1 cm long so that it comes off easily. There should be 14 days from shaving before sugaring. When sugared regularly, even hairs shorter than this start to come off easily. Applying sugar paste to long hairs can feel more unpleasant, so long hairs can be shortened with scissors at home or at the salon if necessary. The sugaring professional cleans your skin before sugaring, so you don’t have to prepare for sugaring in any way (other than growing a little hair). It is not recommended to exfoliate the skin the day before sugaring, and it is not recommended to use oily/greasy products in the treated area right before coming to the treatment, as it can make it a little difficult for the sugar to stick to the hair.

     

  • Reduction / weakening of skin hair with the help of sugaring

    With sugaring, the hairs becomes thinner all the time and the end result is softer. Regular sugaring often weakens the hair follicle and with it leads to fewer hairs. The suitable sugaring interval for the beginning is usually 3-5 weeks, the need for sugaring depends on your own hair growth. When you go for sugaring regularly, you and your sugaring professional will find a sugaring rhythm that suits you. The first times of sugaring can feel a little uncomfortable, especially the bikini area or the Brazilian. This completely depends on your own pain tolerance, but with regular sugaring, when the hair becomes softer, the unpleasant sensations also decrease.

     

  • Sugaring mass

    The sugar paste is made from completely natural ingredients: sugar, water, arabic gum and lemon juice. It is so natural and pure that you can even eat it. Allergic reactions are very rare and no animal tests have been used in the development of the sugar paste. The sugar paste is also completely vegan. Sugar paste is used at skin temperature, so it is safe for all skin areas, including those with varicose veins. The sugar paste can be removed from the skin with warm water, and it does not leave the skin sticky, like traditional wax.

     

About hair removal

Ingrown hairs

Dead skin cells may block the surface of the skin and sometimes prevent the emergence of a new hair, i.e. the hair starts to grow inward. In this case, pimples may appear on the skin and the skin may itch. Dry skin is more susceptible to this, so regular exfoliation and moisturizing of the skin is important. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells and new hairs can grow without problems. If necessary, the sugaring professional can remove some of the ingrown hairs during sugaring.

Facial hair removal

Thanks to its gentleness, sugar is an excellent alternative for facial hair removal. With the help of sugar, the eyebrows can be cleaned from small fluff and sharp lines can be created even in thicker brows. In addition, sugar can easily remove e.g. unwanted hair on the upper lip and chin area. Hair in the facial area should never be cut off by shaving, for example, because in that case the cutted hair will very quickly become sharp and even more visible. Instead, you should always try to remove the hair in the upper lip and chin area completely, for example with tweezers, wax or sugar. Of these options, however, sugar has the best chance of getting the hair removed in its entirety, because sugar adheres well even to shorter skin hair, and does not over exfoliate the skin.

We do not perform hair removal on men’s beards and mustaches at all, because beards and mustaches are strong hair, and removing them with sugar can be too harsh for the skin.

In recent years, whole face sugaring has also become a popular form of treatment. Small and loose “fuzz-like” hair may grow on the face area. When the whole face is sugared, the surface of the skin becomes wonderfully smooth. Sugaring the face works as a kind of quick facial treatment. At the same time, sugar exfoliates dead skin cells from the skin, and in addition, sugar can stick to some blackheads, at the same time cleaning the skin. By sugaring the face, you can also create a perfect base for make-up.

Pst…In our Beauty Bar facial treatment selection, you can find the Sugar Me treatment, which includes facial sugaring and a soothing clay mask.

Body hair removal

There are several options for body area hair removal, such as shavers for home use, foams, wax strips and machines and epilators. Most of these options cut off all or part of the hair, which is why the end result is very short-lasting, and the procedure does not have an effect that weakens hair growth. Out of these options, an epilator is the best if you want to get, for example, a longer-lasting result than shaving. Many times, however, the epilator may cut some of the hairs, and cause ingrown hairs. Many people also find the epilator too uncomfortable for the most sensitive skin areas.

The most popular hair removal methods in the beauty salons are waxing and sugaring. Waxing is a faster technique than sugaring, especially in larger areas of the body. On the other hand, sugaring is gentler than waxing and is also suitable for customers who have sensitive skin or ingrown hairs. Ingrown hairs are easily formed especially in the bikini area and legs, which is why sugar is a very popular alternative for these skin areas. With the help of wax and sugar, the hairs are removed in their entirety, allowing them to grow back even thinner. Regular waxing and sugaring slows down and weakens hair growth, so with these methods it is possible to keep the skin effortlessly smooth.

Brazilian sugaring

In Brazilian sugaring, all hair is removed from the genital area if desired. In Brazilian sugaring, some of the hair can also be left if desired, but this is up to the customer to decide what kind of end result they want. Due to its gentleness, sugar is a popular method for Brazilian hair removal. There’s no need to worry about Brazilian sugaring! Our makers are experienced sugaring professionals, and making Brazilian hair removal is an everyday thing for them. If the treatment stresses you out a lot, you can tell our professional about this openly, and sugaring can be started in smaller portions if desired.

The thickness and density of the hairs has a lot to do with how sugaring feels. A finer and sparser hair comes off very easily, while the removal of a denser and thicker hair typically feels more. However, Brazilian sugaring is significantly easier at the following appointments, when sugaring is done regularly. In this case, there are fewer hairs and the hairs are softer, so they also come off easily. We do not recommend growing the hairs really long for sugaring, because then the application of the sugar mass can feel a bit unpleasant. A suitable hair length is about 0.5 cm. We recommend first shortening long hairs with scissors at home.

We make Brazilian sugaring in our beauty salons only for women.

Home care products – Pfb Vanish – Help with ingrown hairs

If exfoliation and moisturizing are not enough, Pfb vanish is a unique roll-on gel that prevents ingrown hairs. Pfb vanish gently exfoliates the skin and “lifts” ingrown hairs to the surface of the skin, so that skin irritation, swelling and redness disappear. After sugaring, start using the next day at the earliest. The product is also suitable after other hair removal methods, after shaving you can use the product immediately. If you use an epilator, use the product two days before epilation, and the product will remove dead and dry skin cells. If you see ingrown hairs on your skin, use the product in the morning and evening on dry skin until the hairs rise to the surface. Roll the product on the skin and let it dry before applying moisturizer. Results should be visible in less than 48 hours. The product is not recommended during pregnancy or breastfeeding.

The product is also suitable for men to treat ingrown beard hair. Double-edged and triple-edged blades cut the hair too short, so the hair easily sticks into the skin. A single-edged blade is better if you are prone to ingrown hairs. Let the product dry and then you can apply moisturizer or aftershave to the skin.

Frequently asked questions about sugaring

I have atopic skin, can I come for sugaring?

If there is atopic skin in the treated area and the skin is not badly irritated, sugaring can be done. It gently exfoliates the surface of the skin and may even be good for eczema. If the skin is in bad condition, it shouldn’t be sugared. In many cases the irritated areas can be avoided and the rest of the skin can be sugared.

How often should sugaring be done?

This depends on your hair growth and growth cycle. In the beginning, it may be that you need to be sugared a little more often, but the growth of the hair starts to slow down with regular sugaring and the treatment interval then becomes longer. Usually a good interval is 3-5 weeks, at least in the beginning. The sugar specialist will recommend a suitable interval for you when you come for treatment.

Does sugaring hurt?

Sugaring rarely hurts, but it may feel like a bit of a pinch. Brazilian sugaring may sometimes feel uncomfortable if you are menstruating or pregnant, in which case hormonal activity sensitizes your skin’s sense of touch.
