The Benefits of Body Sugaring


The ancient art of sugaring has been revived to the forefront of the esthetics world in an ever-growing trend to use all natural products on clients’ precious skin. Sugaring uses only sugar, water and lemon to create the water-soluble paste that removes hair. The hair is not only gone from the surface, but it is also removed from the root, which increases hair softness, and over time reduces hair growth. Sugaring only adheres to dead keratin cells and hair so there is no chance of skin damage, leaving the skin not only hairless, but also exfoliated and smooth.  The sugaring process has the technician apply the sugar paste in the opposite direction of the hair growth by molding it gently onto the skin, allowing the paste to seep into the hair follicle.  It is then removed by flicking it off with the fingers in the same direction of the hair growth, allowing for the root to be extracted.  There is no need for strips and sticks—just a small amount of sugar paste will complete an entire treatment.


Each consecutive sugaring treatment results in an easier removal of the root, as the newly growing hair begins higher in the follicle— closer to the surface of the skin. Since the hair is actively growing, the client will immediately see results —thinner, finer hair growth and eventually, lack of the production of new hair growth.  With the proper sugaring technique, the root is removed in the direction of the growth, which will allow for no breakage and fewer in-grown hairs.  Clients who consistently sugar the same area every 28 days will notice a definite softer, finer re-growth after three months.  The follicle will eventually stop producing new hair growth which will lead to permanent hair loss.  This also leaves the hair shaft less attached to the root, and thereby easier to remove.  Estheticians love the process because it allows for a more efficient use of product.  Less than a palm full of good-quality paste can remove hair from a large area of the body without ever having to go back for more.  Once the paste does finally become saturated with hair and dead skin cells, the professional simply removes the glove with the paste tosses it all away.
