Are you interested in trying an environmentally friendly and highly effective form of hair removal, called sugaring? Here at Abilene Plastic Surgery and MedSpa, we are thrilled to introduce this tried-and-true hair removal method which has been around for more than a century. Like waxing, sugaring removes hair quickly from its roots, but that’s where the similarities end. Here’s a list of the benefits of sugaring hair removal, and how it may be right for you:
Sugaring is more natural than waxing
Sugaring is made with lemon, water and sugar, heated until it forms a thick, candy-like consistency that can be applied to skin when it’s cool. This all-natural method is more eco-friendly and sustainable than waxing, which is made from synthetic substances.
Sugaring is more effective.
Unlike waxing, which applies wax in the same direction as hair growth and then removes hair in the opposite direction, resulting in frequent breakage, sugaring applies the sugar paste in the opposite direction of hair growth and then removes the hair in the same direction, resulting in less breakage and better results.
Sugaring is gentler on skin.
Unlike waxing, which adheres to both the skin and hair, sugaring only adheres to the hair, resulting in hair removal with less trauma to the surrounding skin. Sugaring also exfoliates the outermost layer of dead skin cells, resulting in a smoother appearance.
For your best results, we recommend scheduling your sugaring session during a time when you are not menstruating, as your skin may be more sensitive during your period. While sugaring is considered to be better tolerated with fewer side effects than waxing, every person responds differently to treatment. We will work hard to ensure your results are exceptional while minimizing any potential side effects.
