Have you been Sugared Yet?

FAQ's - Body Sugaring


Do I need to grow my hair long like I do with waxing?

      NO!  Advanced technique Body Sugaring extracts hair at 1/8 of an inch or less.  If you typically shave, wax or use other hair removal methods, book your sugaring appointment when you hair growth is 1/8 of an inch and feel the difference sugaring can make for you!


Does sugaring cause in grown hair?

      NO! Dead skin growing over the mouth of the follicle causes ingrown hairs. Improper technique, lack of exfoliation and improper knowledge of skin care are  the main causes of ingrowns. Alexandria Professional Practitioners are trained to use the proper pre and post extraction care. As well we educate our clients to use the necessary pre and post care to avoid ingrown hairs.


Many clients continue their Body Sugaring treatments long after the hair has stopped growing as an exfoliation treatment. They simply love the way it makes their skin feel.


How does sugaring differ from waxing?

     Alexandria Professional sugar paste is moulded on the skin against the direction of hair growth. It is then extracted with the direction of hair growth causing  less breakage, less pain, less ingrown hair, less skin irritation and exfoliation of the skin. Wax is heated to a very high degree. This causes swelling of the tissue and pain to the skin. The Advanced Technique paste is applied at room temperature, so the Practitioner never runs the risk of burning the clients skin. 


Is sugaring unsanitary?

     No. Alexandria Professional paste has a high concentration of sugar which means that bacteria cannot breed in the jar. Practitioners are trained to use gloves while extracting hair. Cross contamination with waxing is always a risk especially since bacteria will breed inside of a wax jar.


How often do I need to book an appointment?

     Extraction of the hair in the growing stage (1/8 of an inch or less) on a regular basis can lead to permanency. Appointments should be booked with your Practitioner on a regular basis and when your hair length is 1/8 inch long.


I have sensitive skin and cannot use any product with harsh chemicals or perfumes in them. Are your products safe for me to use?

     Absolutely!! Alexandria Professional sugar paste is all natural. Alexandria Professional uses skin conscious products, with no Ureas, Parabens or Petro Ingredients!
