3. What is Sugaring?

Sugaring is the term for depilation with Sugaring paste. It is a highly effective hair removal method with its roots in the orient and was recently rediscovered as a silver bullet against unwanted hair. 

The Sugaring paste is applicated without any additional tools and the hair is removed in the hair growth direction in a gentle and yet highly effective way. Results are not only longlasting but will also lead to less hair growth in the long run. 

 

4. Who is Sugaring suitable for?

Basically Sugaring is suitable for anyone wanting to get rid of unwanted hair. Even the most sensitive skins with neurodermatitis, varicose veins or allergies will have no disadvantage from using Sugar paste. 

 

5. Does it hurt?

Sugaring is less painful than other comparable methods thanks to the fact that it sticks only to the hair, not to the skin. In addition to that hair is being removed in the growth direction which leads to less pain and thorough results. 

 

6. How long should my hair be for best results?

Ideally hair should be 3-5 mm. With hair shorter than that there is no guarantee for perfect results as the paste will most likely not catch each single hair. 

If hair is too long however there is no issue as we have a trimmer to cut it to perfect length. 

As a rule of thumb you can say hair will have the right length for Sugaring after approximately 2 weeks of shaving or Sugaring. 

 

7. How long can I enjoy the great effects and smooth skin?

Normally the intervals between 2 visits are 3-5 weeks depending on the area and hair consistency. However regular Sugaring treatments will strongly reduce hair growth in the long term. Especially after using our enzymes hair will effectively grow less fast and strong. Our employees will be pleased to provide you with more advice on that. 

 

8. Is there any circumstance under which Sugaring is not advisable?

Sugaring paste should not be applied to sun burned or wounded skin, on fresh scars or if the person suffers from fever. 

 

9. How long does the treatment take? 

We take our time to provide you with the perfect results you deserve. 

Depending on the area the treatment will take between 30 and 45 minutes. Of course some treatments, such as upper lip or finger will be done much quicker – 10 minutes max and you will be done!

Normally bikini zone sugaring will take around 20-30 minutes. Upper/Lower leg aroung 30-45 minutes.
