ASKED QUESTIONS

DO I NEED TO GROW MY HAIR LONG LIKE I DO WITH WAXING?


NO! Advanced technique Body Sugaring extracts hair at 1/8 of an inch or less. If you typically shave, wax or use other hair removal methods, book your sugaring appointment when you hair growth is 1/8 of an inch and feel the difference sugaring can make for you!




DOES SUGARING CAUSE INGROWNS?


No. Dead skin growing over the mouth of the follicle causes ingrown hairs. Improper technique, lack of exfoliation and improper knowledge of skin care are the main causes of ingrowns. Alexandria Professional Practitioners are trained to use the proper pre and post extraction care. As well we educate our clients to use the necessary pre and post care to avoid ingrown hairs. Many clients continue their Body Sugaring treatments long after the hair has stopped growing as an exfoliation treatment. They simply love the way it makes their skin feel.




HOW DOES SUGARING DIFFER FROM WAXING?


Alexandria Professional sugar paste is moulded on the skin against the direction of hair growth. It is then extracted with the direction of hair growth causing less breakage, less pain, less ingrown hair, less skin irritation and exfoliation of the skin. Wax is heated to a very high degree. This causes swelling of the tissue and pain to the skin. The Advanced Technique paste is applied at room temperature, so the Practitioner never runs the risk of burning the clients skin.




IS SUGARING UNSANITARY?


No. Alexandria Professional paste has a high concentration of sugar which means that bacteria cannot breed in the jar. Practitioners are trained to use gloves while extracting hair. Cross contamination with waxing is always a risk especially since bacteria will breed inside of a wax jar.




HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO BOOK AN APPOINTMENT?


A Extraction of the hair in the growing stage (1/8 of an inch or less) on a regular basis can lead to permanency. Appointments should be booked at 1/8 inch on a regular basis.




I HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN AND CANNOT USE ANY PRODUCT WITH HARSH CHEMICALS OR PERFUMES IN THEM. ARE YOU PRODUCTS SAFE FOR ME TO USE?


Absolutely!! Alexandria Professional sugar paste is all natural. Alexandria Professional uses skin conscious products, with no Ureas, Parabens or Petro Ingredients!




ABOUT HAIR EXTRACTION


The hair follicle is part of the skins structure, therefore any treatment which affects the hair is also going to affect the skin. Once a hair has been removed, you may experience small bumps. These bumps are a natural skin condition. Blood flow will be sent straight to the area being treated to heal and protect the skin. This is a normal reaction of the skin and extra blood that has been sent to the treated area will be diverted within an hour after treatment. As the treated area of skin will have open follicles for approximately 24 hours after treatment, it is vital that a client adheres strictly to aftercare advice specified, as open follicles offer bacteria an easy entry into the body.
