What a Difference L.A. Makes

We are all-too-familiar with the inconvenience of other hair removal methods: shaving irritates the skin and inflames hair follicles. Waxing is a painful cycle that requires more time for hair growth between treatments. To put an end to this cycle, we created the Savvy Girl Membership, which provides frequent treatments at an affordable price for those on the quickest, most effective path to permanent hair reduction without the maintenance and pain!

At L.A. Bikini, your comfort and satisfaction is important to us. We work hard to keep you informed and prepared so that you feel beautiful and confident throughout your entire visit.

Getting Acquainted

We’ll talk through what you want to get out of your sugaring experience, and we’ll make sure you know exactly what we can provide.

We’ll talk to you about:

  • The steps of the sugaring process
  • Your personal hair removal goals
  • Memberships and pricing packages that can help you reach those goals

Our Studios

At L.A. Bikini, our studios are always clean and calming. Our goal is to welcome you and help you feel comfortable and well taken care of throughout every step of your treatment. It’s important to us that you feel at home in each L.A. Bikini location.

Our Sugarists

We take training seriously at L.A. Bikini. Each of our staff members is a consummate professional, and we’ll make each and every L.A. Bikini experience safe. All of our sugarists are trained in identical processes, so you can be confident in the same exact standards each time you visit L.A. Bikini, regardless of which sugarist serves you.

Before Your Appointment

Please do not shave or do any other method of hair removal less than 5 days prior to your treatment. Please avoid sun tanning or exercising prior to your treatment as this can heat up your skin and cause irritation.

After Treatment Care

Proper at-home care will help to ensure a better experience for you. It is vital to exfoliate, hydrate and detox your skin on a regular basis in between treatments. When your skin is in the best condition possible, hair is extracted easier and can grow back properly without causing ingrown hairs. Your sugarist will discuss with you in detail our Full Circle Skin Conditioning Program to help achieve these results.

Sugaring 101

The New Smooth™

L.A. Bikini is at the forefront of a generational shift in the way beautiful skin is achieved. We’ve cast aside the methods of the past, namely hot wax, in favor of a more modern, more comfortable technique called “sugaring.” Simply put, it’s the removal of unwanted body hair by applying a proprietary sugar paste that goes on cool, comes off easily, and leaves skin unbelievably smooth. So smooth, in fact, we call it, “The New Smooth.”

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. So stop harming your skin with harsh wax and start pampering your skin with sugaring.

FAQs

  • What is a Brazilian (or as we call it, an 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.

  • Do you offer other types of sugaring for the bikini area?

    Yes! We have three different options that eliminate varying areas of hair: the Basic Bikini (outside bikini line), the Partial L.A. Bikini (2″ inside bikini line) and the L.A. Bikini (a full Brazilian, the L.A. way).

  • 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 and a special relief for 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 the 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 against the grain and removed in the natural direction of hair growth, sugaring removes hair with less pain.
