Answers to your questions

How often do I need to sugar?

The simplest answer is, extracting the hair at 1/8” or less will lead to permanency.  This is due to the hair being in the anagen (growing) stage. Depending on the location and the function of the hair this active growing can last from months to years.

Guideline for approximate frequency of treatments:

  • eyebrows & chin: 2 to 4 weeks
  • lip: 3 to 4 weeks
  • side of face & neck: 4 weeks
  • underarms: 3 to 5 weeks
  • arms and hands: 8 to 10 weeks
  • breasts: 4 to 6 weeks
  • chest and back: 4 to 6 weeks
  • bikini and abdomen: 3 to 5 weeks
  • thighs: 6 to 8 weeks
  • lower legs and knees: 3 to 6 weeks
  • feet: 6 to 8 weeks

I have an event or trip upcoming. When do you recommend getting sugared?

It is recommended to have at least 2 – 3 sugaring treatments before your event or trip.  To ensure your hair is all growing at the same rate, or in the same stage.  Example; you are a regular shaver and you are going on a two week vacation.  If you came in for legs within a week prior to your trip, you will likely see hair growth on your trip.  The reason is hair grows in different stages and it is not possible to catch all the hairs with 1 sugaring treatment.  Which is why 2 – 3 appointments is ideal.

I have psoriasis. Can I be sugared?

Yes, persons with psoriasis can be sugared as long as the areas are dry and not cracking or leaking.  The sugar will help remove the dead skin build-up.
