Preparing For Your Sugaring Appointment

Gently exfoliate the areas being sugared 48 hours before your appointment.

Do not shave the area 10-14 days prior.  A minimum of 1/4" of hair is required for sugaring.

Please arrive showered and clean.  Your skin should be clean and dry. Avoid using any makeup, powders, sprays, deodorant, oils or lotions prior to your sugaring treatment.

Men should bring a clean, dark colored shirt to change into after for chest or back sugaring.

Please do not sunbathe or use a tanning bed for 48 hours prior to any sugaring treatment.

After Care Instructions

Please refrain from wearing tight clothing around the areas that have been sugared. 

After 48 hours, it is very important to exfoliate and hydrate your skin every two to three days to remove dead skin cells and to avoid ingrown hairs. Do not forget to moisturize your skin and hair follicles and keep them hydrated.

Please plan to avoid activities that may lead to excessive perspiration for at least eight hours. Remember, your follicles and pores are open, and for this reason, we want to prevent bacteria in the form of sweat, from entering.

It is recommended you DO NOT have sex for at least 24 hours after a brazilian/bikini treatment to avoid the risk of an infection of the hair follicules!

Avoid hot tubs and swimming pools for two days following treatment. Your skin is still sensitive and your hair follicles may still be open. There is an increased risk of developing a bacterial infection.

Take care not to use perfume soaps, scented moisturizers or products with chemical irritants within 24 hours of your treatment.

Do not sunbathe or use a tanning bed for 48 hours prior to or after any sugaring or waxing treatment.

Clients that are premenstrual experience more skin sensitivity. For sensitive skin, apply ice cold compresses 2 to 3 times for about 20 minutes at a time to take away the sting and reduce redness.

Clean all makeup brushes and makeup supplies used on the face before re-applying any makeup.

Avoid shaving in between appointments and don't forget to book your next appointment in 3-4 weeks for optimal results!


How long should my hair be prior to sugaring?

Generally speaking, three to four weeks of hair growth is perfect but about two to three weeks of growth would be acceptable depending on how quick your hair grows.  If your hair is excessively long, there may be more discomfort.  I recommend trimming the hair prior to your appointment. 

How long do I wait between appointments?

The optimal amount of time between sugaring will be between three and four weeks, depending on the body part. The goal is to remove the hair from the root ball to discourage it from growing back.

Can I get my Brazilian or bikini sugared if I have my cycle?

It is completely up to you. Generally, skin is more sensitive during this time and you may opt to reschedule but if you are comfortable, it is fine to get sugared while on your period. If this is the case, we ask that you wear a tampon or cup.

Can the hair removal by sugaring last forever? 

While there are no guarantees to this, in many cases, sugaring may lead to permanency.

Can I sugar while using Accutane, Retin-A? 

It is not recommended.  Please consult with your physician.  A doctor's note is recommended.

How long does sugaring last?

It varies from person to person and here's why:

There are three separate growth cycles for your hair. On your first sugaring visit, we get the first, second, and part of the third growth cycles of your hair. Once returning to get sugared two or three times, we start getting all three hair cycled out at the same time. As you continue to get sugared regularly, you will be able to go longer periods of time between your sugaring.

Will the hair grow back darker and coarser?

With sugaring, your hair will grow back thinner and many clients report a noticeable reduction of hair growth.

When choosing body sugaring as your hair removal choice, your first three appointments are the most important. It is important that your first three sugaring sessions are booked fairly close together. If you are planning to use sugaring to soften and reduce hair growth, regular sugaring treatments result in slower growth of hair and is thorough.  Many find that sugaring is less painful and in most cases lead to permanency.

Using razors or depilatory cream between appointments will interfere with the goal of diminishing your hair growth. Please exfoliate and hydrate your skin regularly between sugaring visits. Proper aftercare is important for optimal results. You will receive the best results if your skin is happy and healthy.

What makes sugaring different than waxing?

Sugaring is longer-lasting, exfoliates while removing the first layer of dead skin cells, and is 100% pure and organic. It is more sanitary because there is no double dipping. Additionally, shorter hair can be extracted. Sugaring is water-soluble and easy to remove from clothing.

Is sugaring safe? 

Yes! Sugaring is all natural and generally consists of sugar, lemon juice, and water.
•    Our sugar is warm and never hot so there’s no need to be concerned about being burned.
•    Sugaring wraps itself around the hair shaft making it pliable and gently encourages the extraction of hair deep inside the follicles.
•    Sugar is bacteria resistant.
•    You will notice how clean and soft your skin feels after sugaring.
