Sugaring hair removal, an ancient middle-eastern practice uses an all-natural paste or gel made from food-derived ingredients like sugar, water, and lemon juice to remove the hair follicle from the root. The results can last up to six weeks. While there are many recipes, only natural ingredients are used in real recipe. Visible Changes use organic ingredients. So you will experience all natural and organic ingredients when receiving your sugaring treatment.
Large amounts of hair can be taken out at once. And finished faster than even waxing. With most waxes, you have to apply them to a limited area- remove, go to your next area- remove and so forth. With sugaring you can speed things up by applying the paste to a very large area, and it won’t dry out, even if you take it off in smaller sections.
Easy clean up. Both the paste and gel are water soluble, meaning you can clean off any residue left on the skin with plain water, unlike regular wax.
Sugar paste can be applied over missed hairs. The paste is very gentle and can be put right over an area that was just sugared but missed some hairs, without fear of much irritation.
Temporary results can turn into permanent. Over time, frequent sugaring can cause the hair follicle to become damaged, and stop growing hair.
The two types of sugaring, using the paste and gel are performed differently. Here’s how:
The paste. Considered the traditional technique, a warmed thick mixture is applied first in the opposite direction of hair growth and then in the direction of hair growth using the hands. It’s then flicked off in the in the direction of hair growth.
The gel. Performed similarly to waxing, the gel is applied in the direction of hair growth and removed in the opposite direction
The ShowOffs staff are highly experienced and trained in both methods of sugaring – and it will depend on your specific needs as to what method will be used.
