Want smooth, beautiful skin without the waxing side effects and painful waxing experience — with sugar paste hair removal? You’ve got it! With sugaring: the brilliant, natural alternative to waxing.
Sugaring vs. Waxing
Sugar paste goes on cool, comes off easily, and works to lubricate your hair follicles. The sugar paste hair removal process allows hair removal without the pain and trauma of waxing, leaving you feeling refreshed and ready to go.
Sugaring can eliminate and prevent ingrown hair, treat skin problems ranging from keratosis and eczema to psoriasis, and improve skin tone and texture. Because it’s natural and gentle, sugar paste hair removal works without burning your skin, damaging cells, scarring, or promoting cross-contamination. Looking for a way to get smooth skin naturally without the waxing side effects? Look no further than L.A. Bikini!
What is a Brazilian (L.A. Bikini?)
A Brazilian refers to removing the hair along the bikini area. At L.A. Bikini, we refer to Brazilian hair removal as an “L.A. Bikini,” and we have three different options that eliminate varying areas of hair.
Why sugaring instead of waxing?
Wax is an adhesive, so it actually adheres to your skin. As a result, when you remove the wax (and hair) from your skin, you will experience a lot of pain. Unlike waxing, sugaring doesn’t adhere to live skin cells. When it is removed, it only gently exfoliates dead skin cells, leaving behind silky smooth skin. So the hair removal process is much less painful than waxing. Sugar paste hair removal also removes hair in the natural direction of growth, revealing skin that’s beautiful and silky instead of irritated or inflamed.
Will sugaring damage my skin?
Absolutely not. Sugaring will not damage, burn or scar your skin.
Waxing is hot. Does sugaring feel hot like waxing?
Sugar hair removal isn’t hot — it isn’t even close. Sugaring is performed at body temperature, which means you don’t have to deal with hot, burning wax being applied to your skin. This is great news for anyone and is a special relief to those with sensitive skin.
Is the sugar paste safe?
Absolutely! The sugar paste that we use is completely natural and water-soluble. (In fact, our sugar paste is so safe that it’s actually edible!) When you choose to use sugar, you not only get beautiful skin; you also get to avoid the chemical-based waxing products that are typically used in the hair removal process.
How is sugar paste applied?
At L.A. Bikini, sugar paste is removed in the natural direction of growth of your hair. (That is in contrast to waxing, which removes hair against the grain, causing unnecessary pain and discomfort.) Because sugar paste is applied with the grain of hair growth, sugaring removes hair with less pain.
