Waxing and sugaring are two of the most commonly used hair removal techniques available. The two processes remove the hair from the follicle leaving the skin silky smooth. These two techniques however are quite different.

Waxing uses a heated wax that is applied attaching to hair and pulling the opposite direction of the follicle growth pattern popping the hair out of the follicle. We use two different wax types and each wax is specifically designed for sensitive skin. We use a hard wax on the more sensitive areas of the body like the bikini area and face. Hard wax is heated to a slightly lower temperature than our soft wax making it a much better option for those concerned about irritation from waxing. Soft wax is used for those larger body areas like legs where the skin is less sensitive achieving a much better result for those particular areas.

Sugaring is quite different. Sugaring uses an all natural sugar paste to remove the hair in the natural direction of the follicle’s growth thus causing fewer ingrown hairs. It is also warmed at room temperature unlike waxing which is heated much higher, making it less irritating to the skin surface after the hair is removed. Often sugaring is quoted to be less painful than waxing. In our experience this is true if you were to rate each pull side by side however sugaring is a much more artistic technique that smooths the paste through the hair in order to attach and pull that hair from the root. This can feel more painful than the traditional waxing which is simply applied and pulled. The benefits of sugaring are that the hair regrowth isn’t as rapid and thick and it is much softer on the skin. We highly recommend sugaring for those sensitive skin types.

    Waxing is typically less painful and great for most skin types. Sugaring is better for those with sensitive skin or a tendency to have ingrown hairs and irritation. Sugaring is also the preferred method for facial hair removal if you are using retinols.

    Both techniques take the same amount of time.

    Waxing and sugaring are some of the best ways to get rid of unwanted hair, they are both methods that are pulling hair from the root. This method of pulling out unwanted hair will alway hurt to some degree regardless of the process. That being said we recommend taking a Tylenol 30 minutes before your appointment to help lessen the ouch.it is painful. However, sugaring does not stick to live skin cells, which makes it much less painful than waxing.
