FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

s u g a r i n g 101


 

+ q: What is body sugaring?

A: Body sugaring is an ancient hair removal practice using an all-natural paste made of sugar, water, and lemon. The consistency is similar to a thick honey. The sugar paste is applied to the skin against the direction of growth and is quickly “flicked” off in the direction of growth to remove the hair.

+ q: How long will the results last?

A: Everyone is different, but you will see minimal regrowth during the first 3 to 4 weeks, with a noticeable increase afterward. If you usually shave, it will take a few sessions to achieve long-lasting results. Regular, continued sugaring encourages slower, sparser regrowth and will eventually lead to permanent hair removal if appointments are correctly spaced.

+ q: What does a Brazilian include?

A: The Smooth Operator Brazilian removes everything from the pubic area, bikini area, labia, and between the cheeks.

+ q: How do I prepare for my appointment?

A: Ensure the area/areas you are getting sugared are clean and free from lotions, oils, and deodorants. If you’re getting a bikini or Brazilian, we recommend that you wear white cotton panties or bring them with you.

+ q: How often should I be sugared?

A: To maintain that clean, smooth, and sexy feeling, we recommend that you come in every 4 weeks. Your hair will become thinner and more sparse.

+ q: I’m on my period. Can I still get sugared?

A:Yes, although you may be more sensitive a few days before and during your period. Some clients find that it helps to take an anti-inflammatory painkiller about 30 minutes prior to their session. Just wear a fresh tampon and tuck in the string before we start and you will be just fine.

+ q: How long does the hair need to be?

A: Did you know that sugaring removes hair at a much shorter length than waxing?

We require that the hair be at least ⅛ of an inch long or have 1½ to 3 weeks of outgrowth to ensure successful removal. Waxing, on the other hand, requires at least ¼” of hair for wax to pick it up.

+ q: Can I get sugared while I am pregnant?

A: We often get asked this question and the answer is yes!... We have many pregnant women who come to us because sugaring is the gentler option as our sugar is 100% natural, consisting of just lemon, sugar, and water. You may want to double check with your doctor, as you are likely going through other hormonal changes, and can be a bit more sensitive. We would love to take care of you during your pregnancy, and if you still have any questions, just as us- we'd be happy to answer them for you!

+ q: My skin is sensitive can I still get sugared?

Sugaring is a wonderful option for those of us with sensitive skin. It’s made from all-natural ingredients and is much gentler on the skin, making it an overall more comfortable and gentler experience than other hair removal methods.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

l a s e r 101


 

+ q: Will it hurt?

A: No...it’s not painful but you will feel heat from time to time or the sensation of a snap against your skin depending on the area. Most areas feel like a misting of water on your skin, and it actually hurts less than waxing/sugaring.

+ q: How many sessions will I need?

A: It’s impossible to tell you an exact number of sessions because everyone is different and there are a few different factors to take into consideration ie. hormones, heredity ...but generally it’s 6-10 sessions (could be more and could be less)

+ q: Am I able to still sugar?

A: No, while getting laser hair removal the only thing you can do to remove the hair in between treatments is to shave. You would also shave right before your treatment.

+ q: I have a darker skin tone... will it work on me? Will I get burnt?

A: You can definitely have the service and it will definitely work. Our machine works on ALL skin tones ... the NDYAG:1064 is specifically for darker tones so you will not get burnt and you will have beautiful results.

+ q: My hair is blonde, will it work on me?

A: It honestly depends... dirty blonde to light brown will definitely work but white blonde will not. There has to be some pigment in the hair for the laser to detect it. Unsure? Come in and we can let you know if you would be a candidate. Generally light blonde, white and grey hairs cannot be treated.
