Why sugaring hair removal is better for your skin?

1. With strip wax the hair is removed against the natural direction of growth which may cause the hair to split causing the hair to grow back quicker. With sugaring the hair is always removed in the natural direction of growth causing less stress to the follicle, more ease of extraction of the hair thus a slower regrowth. There is a more thorough extraction of the hair with sugaring, resulting in a more effective and permanent after result compared to waxing.

2. Wax involves heat causing more pain. Sugaring contains no heat which is gentler on the skin and the hair follicle providing a more therapeutic experience causing less stress to you and your skin.

3. There is less risk of cross contamination with sugaring as you always have to wear individual glove during each treatment that is disposed of after each treatment.

4. Sugaring is a permanent reduction of hair removal where waxing isn't. The results are more permanent when the treatment is done every 2 to 3 weeks depending on the area, particularly on the face. The closer you have the treatments together the better the results.

5. Waxing adheres to fresh skin cells where as sugaring adheres to dead skin cells which makes it a natural exfoliating treatment . Sugaring helps to prevent and treat ingrown hairs where as waxing can sometimes cause ingrown hair which makes it harder to treat. There is less reaction like spots, rash, redness or inflammation after sugaring compared to waxing thus making it more suitable for pregnant women, women or men that are very sensitive and prone to reacting after treatments.

What areas of the body can sugaring hair removal be used on?

Sugaring can remove hair from all body parts including the face, underarms, arms, legs, back and intimate areas. The sugar paste gently exfoliates only dead skin cells resulting in a much gentler sugaring even on delicate skin tissue areas.

How do I take care of my skin before and after sugaring?

We will always give you professional advice on how to care for your skin before and after sugaring treatment. Pre-sugaring and after-sugaring care is essential to eliminate any skin irritation and any chance of skin reaction from the actual extraction of body hair. All Alexandria Professional products that we recommend you to use have been formulated, tried and tested, and proven extremely safe and effective. None of the products are tested on animals.
