Sugaring Q & A

Perfect Smile Tulsa

What is sugaring? 

Sugaring is an ancient form of hair removal that involves pulling hair out of the roots using a mixture of sugar, hot water, and lemon. It is considered one of the first forms of epilation (the removal of hair by the roots.) Some sources have sugaring dating back to the Middle East around 1900 BC.  

How is sugaring different than waxing?

Waxing is the form of hair removal that you are probably most familiar with, (other than shaving or laser hair removal.) While waxing can remove hair, it also removes skin, which can cause serious irritation. Sugaring is a form of hair removal made up of natural materials which do not stick to the skin, only to the hair - leaving the skin less irritated, softer, and hair free.

The sugar paste is also removed from the hair in the same direction as the hair grows, which allows the mixture to grab the whole hair follicle without breaking it. Wax is removed in the opposite direction of the hair growth, causing the follicle to break and leave a part of the hair strand behind.

What are the benefits of sugaring?

Less painful than waxing

Less expensive than laser hair removal

Leaves skin less irritated

Leaves skin soft

Leaves skin hair free longer than traditional waxing, because removing hair in the same direction as the hair follicle results in total hair removal and less follicle breakage

Less chance for ingrown hairs

Great for sensitive skin or skin areas like around the face and lips

Sugar mixture is made up of natural materials

Easy clean up - just wash off with soap and water or a moist towelette.

Is sugaring safe? 

Yes! Sugaring at Perfect Smile Tulsa is a safe procedure. The components that make up the sugar are natural and there is typically less sensitivity and less pain than traditional waxing.
