With the increased interest in more holistic methods of caring for ourselves the need to provide a natural type of permanent hair removal system was necessary. Available now Body Sugaring USA Day Spa provides this much needed service. Women in Egypt call this type of hair removal method "Halawa". It is customary for the Egyptian women to remove all their body hair prior to marriage. These women make their own sugar paste and knead it on their kitchen tables. This service has not been known, much less available to American men and women until today. Our labratory in the US scientifically produces this product for us to use in a more Americanized and hygenic setting in the salon.
Body Sugaring is a safe and natural Egyptian method of permanent hair removal. Unlike waxing, it is applied at body temperature so there is no burning and it does not contain any irritating chemicals that might harm the skin. In addition, our body sugaring does not use a strip of paper or cloth to remove the paste and hair, we use the Advanced Method of Sugaring that is much gentler to your skin. Once you try it you'll agree it is absolutely the best and most effective alternative to not only waxing, but also electrolysis and laser. The sugar paste used in our salon is scientifically formulated without animal testing and hand crafted in the United States to insure that it is pure, safe, non-allergenic, and environmentally friendly. While individual results may vary, two to six weeks is the average return visit. We also provide a free follow up session within 7 to 10 days of your initial visit. Body Sugaring treatments are accompanied by a complete after treatment skin care program with natural products exclusively created to aid hair removal.
WHAT IS THE HISTORICAL BACKGROUND OF BODY SUGARING?
The earliest reference to hair removal came from the ancient civilizations of Mesopotamia, Egypt and Greece. Early writings out of Mesopotamia tell of kings asking that maidens be brought to them "clean and smooth", that is hairless. Egyptian writings describe how slave girls, serving the Paharaoh, were expected to remove body hair. Hairy arms and bodies were considered socially to be unclean. During the time of the Turkish (Ottoman) Empire, the harem was an important part of court life, and the removal of body hair was considered an art. The tradition has been handed down through the generations, and certain Arabic people still practice total body hair removal, especially prior to their wedding night. Body sugaring diminishes hair growth quite rapidly. Live skin is left healthy because the application of sugar does not involve excessive heat as found in waxing. The high temperature required in waxing can result in injury to live skin cells. Sugar only sticks to dead skin cells and hair. Usually it will take from 4-6 weeks for hair to grow back, depending on the client and the type of hair.
HOW DID BODY SUGARING COME TO BE USED FOR HAIR REMOVAL?
Body Sugaring is a successful modernization of the ancient Egyptian art of hair removal that has been used for thousands of years and is still part of the social and cultural customs of many Muslim people today. This is a gentle and natural process that can easily remove unwanted facial and body hair, utilizing a chemical free and water soluble sugar paste. It controls and diminishes hair growth cycles with the long term effect of creating ever decreasing growth that is progressively easier to remove.
WHY IS BODY SUGARING A MORE PROGRESSIVE TYPE OF HAIR REMOVAL SYSTEM?
Because we use the Advanced Method of Sugaring that is much gentler to the skin. Our method of Body Sugaring does not leave permanent scars that can occur with electrolysis and laser techniques. Also, our Sugaring is gentle to the skin leaving it smooth and silky. It is so gentle is can be applied to any body part or skin type. Hair grows finer, lighter and more sparse. There is only minor residual discomfort. And our sugar is environmentally safe and non-allergenic. Our sugar can be used on men, women and children. We also offer a complimentary consultation so a patch test can be performed. We'll remove the hair from a small area, preferably on the arm, and thus show you how the skin is prepared prior to treatment. Most importantly, you'll be able to see how, when and if the hair removed grew back.
WILL YOUR HAIR STOP GROWING?
Yes, however this is something that will take time depending on each individual. You will first notice your hair come in finer and lighter in color. Next you will notice patches of hair not growing back, and the frequency of growth slows down considerably. Eventually your hair will stop growing any, you will no longer need to worry about unwanted hair removal.
Body Sugaring has been a unique and refreshing experience for me. I always had reactions to shaving or creme removals in the bikini area with red bumps and soreness. The sugaring did not have this reaction and the hair took weeks to grow back. When it did grow, it was 25% lesshair. I could see dramatic results after my second treatment. For my first visit, my discomfort was on a level 8 (on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being highest discomfort). For my second visit, my discomfort level was a 3, and the third visit it was a 1-2. I will never shave again in my bikini area! S. W.
I have been sugaring my face for approx. 2 years. There is a big difference in the hair growth. It has become very sparse thanks to Body Sugaring. C.A.
I am amazed at how simple a proces the sugaring is, but so very effective. I started washing/exfoliating with the sugar solution my technician suggested 2 days before my first session. People I work with noticed the difference immediately. My skin glows and has a much more youthful feel and appearance. I only wash/exfoliate now with the sugar solution, no soap. I recommend sugaring to everyone. My self confidence and self esteem have gone up considerably. L. C.
With my lifestyle of teaching aerobics, I needed help! Before Sugaring I would have to shave very high (because of the short work out pants) causing lots of razor/irritaion & ingrown hairs. After my first visit, the hair on my buttocks did not come back! It has been a plasure meeting & having Dora perform the body sugaring. Painless--fantastic results with a true professional! L.B.
After my third session I already saw results. The hair was coming back much thinner and sparse. S.G.
After the fourth visit I started seeing substantial sparseness in my bikini area. Also, the hair started coming out so much easier and painlessly. My ingrown hairs slide right out when I remove them. Getting my bikini area sugared is the second best thing I have ever done for myself after Lasik eye surgery. I always get a different lesson on taking care of my skin or other beauty hints while I am receiving the hair removal. I always feel pampered and well taken care of when I go. Thank you Body Sugaring USA Day Spa. M.T.
Hair returns much lighter/thinner. Eventually does not return. Painless with no irritation. Leaves skin very smooth. R.T.M.
Wonderful results, less hair in bikini area, used to be very hairy. Very pain free procedure also. Not to mention great technique performed by Body Sugaring USA. Would highly recommend to anyone! L.C.
I find body sugaring has helped my hair to come back finer, smoother and less hair. Also I used to get razor burn - which I love body sugaring I no longer get razor burn. It feels great when you see less and less hair return after your visits to get bodysugared. Body sugaring is painless - I used to get electrolysis and could not stand the pain I used to get. I look forward to my visits to body sugaring they are great. C.D.
Just a quick thank you for your wonderful service and professionalism. The experience of sugaring is new to me and you have done an outstanding job of educating me and making me feel very comfortable. Thank you very much. M.T. It's a good life!
Hair was thick and prickly, before I would pluck and shave (ear hair and nose hair). I would come about every 3 months, now it has been 9 months and the hair is lighter and not as thick. I would recommend sugaring for everyone. G.S.
Not only painless - but after the first session, I could see less hair coming back, and no rash, unlike shaving and waxing. Dora makes sure you are comfortable through the entire process. She is a wonder.
I was surprised with the results after one session of Body Sugaring. Not only did I notice less hair growing back, but it grew back thin and fine. Very happy with the results.
I have been Body Sugaring over two years. My treatments are full face, neck, legs, bikini line and glutes. There is some discomfort but when I exfoliate at home everyday prior to the treatment it makes the hair removal easier and less painful. I love the way I feel and look after, younger, prettier and so clean. I would never wax again due to the pain & damage it causes, there is no comparison to Body Sugaring. On a scale of 1 to 10 the pain level for me is around a 3. S.F.
I started Body Sugaring in June of 2002. I had been shaving my upper lip and chin for over 20 years. I really had a lot of facial hair. I can't get over how the facial hair is very light and soft. It is not thick like it used to be. Now I can go 10 days without seeing any hair growth. It is wonderful not to have to worry about shaving every morning like I used to. I know that soon I will be able to go weeks without having to get a treatment. A.B.
I've been to other hair removal salons, and they did not ask me at the end of the session if I was satisfied. Moreover, they denied to fix the hair that was left behind, making such excuses as they already put oil or lotion on. L.A.
After one treatment (with no follow up) 60 percent of the hair that was removed did not come back. E.L.
In the past years I have tried several things for the removal of facial hair but everything had the same results. the hair grew back fast and sometimes coarser than before. All the treatments were painful especially electrolysis. The treatment I have been receiving at Body Sugaring has minimal discomfort and very little regrowth. I highly recommend Body Sugaring. C.A.
I had been getting waxed for approx. 7 years and was always left with red, irritated skin on my lip, brow and chin for at least 2 hours after my session. I ws amazed that after my 1st sugaring session, my skin was barely pink and was back to normal in less than 1 hour. The sugaring process is also much gentler than waxing, much less painful. After 4 sessions, I have found the hair to be growing back sparser and more slowly. I'm a true convert! A.M.
