Body Sugaring is the oldest form of hair removal in the world. Its
origins based in the ancient civilizations of the Middle East and even Ancient Egypt. Sugar Paste Recipes have even been found in the hieroglyphics.
Sugar is a 98°F paste that I make myself. The 98°F paste is molded on the body and the hair and the root and the follicle removed. So right away the human body is 98°F, and the paste works at the same temperature and you can never be burned. Sugar removes dead skin patches and exfoliates the skin in each session. What makes sugar superior to wax is that it's all natural. And wax is resin. Wax being resin can make the skin break out immediately. And the Sugaring process lasts longer. As sugar removes the bulb and the hair the return growth is baby soft. As shaving and wax can have the hair regrow with a blunt, bristle like edge. The skin does not recognize wax as being natural therefor even before hair is removed you may breakout, sugar is all natural....no break out due to sugar!
Sugaring does not have the same "risk" factors as wax. No cross contamination can take place, as bacteria can not survive in sugar. From a health and safety prospective, sugar again surpasses wax. Sugaring requires 1/8" of hair growth, (10-14 days).
And the suggested timeline for return is 3-4 weeks. All hair goes through the greatest stage of growth at the 3 and 4 week mark. This growth spurt in all hair is called Anagenisis. By returning at the 3 and 4 week mark, we head the hair off at the pass. And you begin to see the hair "stunt" in growth. It returns softer, in patches, the not at all.
I lived with The Royal Family of Turkey in London. The matriarchal grandmother, raised in the Dalmache palace in Istanbul, shared her recipe for sugar with me. I used to watch the her and her daughter boil sugar and practice on their legs. Decades later having retired from work as a pastry chef, I took my knowledge in Sugar to the Spa industry.
In the last 12 years I have mastered my own technique and train all my employees.
You can sugar any part of the human body from the waist down and up to the neck. Sugaring is the least painful of all hair removal methods. And the water soluble paste requires no recovery time. You are left with no product on the body.
What is not sugared is addressed in body grooming. A 75 minute session for initial visits is suggested. As hair quality and thickness is different on everyone.
The success of sugaring is dictated on the health of the skin, the more exfoliated and moisturized you are the better the results.
If you're considering body grooming, you probably both care about how you look and appreciate the sensuous qualities of your skin. If you really want to pamper yourself - and look and feel great - we recommend the following:
One to two days before your first sugaring treatment, come in for any body treatment. We get rid of any flaky, sun damaged or dehydrated skin. We also soothe and care for sensitive skin and areas where you might have eczema or psoriasis. And the way we do it will make you glow:
Thorough body polishing as a prerequisite for perfect hair removal is accomplished with a dry brushing and organic sugar scrub. A further step in conditioning skin for preparation is a head to toe wrap in Hungarian treatment mud or seaweed. Balancing the body with an application of Argan oil or Shea Butter has left the body a perfect canvas for Body Sugaring!
Take care of your skin. We offer a number of top-quality products not readily available elsewhere (or on TV) to help you do this:
Supracore Honey Comb Loofah - to help you exfoliate on a daily basis (be gentle). Made from the surgical plastic as heart valves, will not grow bacteria.
Prince Reigns, an aloe-based gel product - to help keep dead skin cells from accumulating and to train body hair to grow out straight (so it comes off easier next time).
Come back for a second treatment in about 3 - 4 weeks (about the same interval you have between regular haircuts; but don't wait longer, or we have to start all over again). Most men find the results are permanent in about 4 months (6 sugaring treatments).
Sound like a lot of work? Well, looking good takes some time and effort. At least you're not doing most of the work. Seem expensive? As the old hair color commercial used to say, you're worth it!
Commit to looking good today (and tomorrow, and the day after that, and the day after that…)!
