While sugaring resembles body waxing, the two hair removal techniques are drastically different. Body sugaring is an ancient hair removal technique that uses all natural ingredients – namely sugar, lemon juice and water. Unlike waxing, sugar paste is applied against the growth of the hair and removed with the growth of the hair. Pulling with the direction of hair growth results in more even hair removal, less pain and minimal chance of ingrown hairs. Sugar wax can also be applied to shorter hair growth, meaning less wait time in between appointments here at Perpetuity Skin + Spa in Boise, Boise’s best day spa also offers hair removal. 

Hair Removal Method Taking Over Day Spas Everywhere

As sugar wax is made from natural ingredients, it is hypoallergenic! Unlike waxing, which can cause burns and severe skin irritationbody sugaring is a great option for those with sensitive skin. As a hair removal option, body sugaring is gentler and typically offers better results than waxing.

Sugaring can also extract very short hairs. Typically, hot waxing requires you to have longer hair. With sugaring wax, your hair needs to be about 1/6 of an inch long (about the size of a grain of rice). This equates to is about 2 weeks of growth. The first time is always the hardest, but sugaring can stunt the hair growth and it can thin your hair out. The second sugaring hair treatment will be half the time and half the hair, it’s an efficient and effective hair removal method. At Perpetuity Skin + Spa in Boise, we apply the sugar paste and pull with the hair follicle instead of against it.

This greatly reduces irritation and ensures the whole hair is extracted to provide you with a longer time in between waxing appointments. If you keep up with your appointments at Perpetuity, about every 4-5 weeks, your hair will remain thin, soft and easy to remove. Avoid spray tans or self-tanning until after your waxing appointment.
