Body wax professionals often ask us is there really a difference between waxing and sugaring?
Quite a bit actually…
- Sugaring will help:
- eliminate ingrown hairs
- prevent new ingrown hairs
- extract all hair colors and textures
- successfully treat all skin types and colors
- improve the skin tone and texture
- Sugaring will not:
- burn the skin
- damage the dermal cells
- “pit” the delicate facial skin cells
- scar the follicle mouth or surrounding area
- promote cross contamination
Body wax products are very different from sugaring products. Sugaring legs and bodies requires an entirely different mind-set and approach from waxing legs and bodies. For instance, did you know…
Waxing products for legs, faces and bodies adhere to skin cells…
This is one of the major differences between sugaring and waxing legs and other more sensitive areas. Wax products are made of resins which adhere to skin cells on legs and bodies. Because wax sticks to any surface it is applied to, pulling it away causes unwarranted discomfort.
Alexandria Professional sugaring products never adhere to live skin cells on bodies, faces, or legs. Therefore, when it is removed, it only gently exfoliates dead skin cells, leaving behind freshened skin on legs, bodies, and faces.
Waxing pulls hair against its natural direction of growth…
When waxing legs and bodies, you remove the hair against the natural direction of growth causing undue levels of pain.
With Alexandria Professional's sugaring method, you only remove the hair in the natural direction of the hair growth. Plus, through the Alexandria Pro sugaring application technique, the sugar paste seeps into the hair follicle. This helps lubricate the hair root regardless of whether it’s on the legs or anywhere else.
Most products used for waxing legs and full bodies are made from petroleum based resins and chemicals making them prone to contamination or cross contamination.
Alexandria Professional Sugaring Paste is all natural. In fact, the only ingredients are pure sugar, water and lemon. That’s it. It’s even edible and delicious, and it’s a wonderful treatment for the skin.
There's NO risk of burning sensitive skin areas with sugaring…
Waxing the legs or any area of your client that uses or requires hot wax risks burning sensitive skin.
There’s just no way around that. While women are used to this risk, men are often intimidated by the idea of hot wax on their chest, legs, face, or back..
Sugaring is done at body temperature. There’s no need for heat. Alexandria Professional advanced sugaring treatment adheres to the hair, not the skin, and lubricates the root for easier removal from the follicle. Combined with the hair removal in the natural direction of growth, sugaring means a much more comfortable experience for everyone.
