No. Sugaring is epilation – hair removal by the root, whereas laser uses concentrated light to destroy the hair follicle.
The following conditions can not be sugared:
- Enlarged Varicose veins
- New scars
- Sunburned skin
- The inner ear
- Network beards
- Bruises or lesions
- Skin tags
- Raised moles
If you are using the following on your skin, you are ineligible for sugaring:
- Retin-A Treatments, including enzyme peels, glycolic peels, AHA’s and any similar products. Discontinue use for 5-7 days before sugaring – patch test required before sugaring
- Vitamin C – patch test required
Alexandria Professional has formulated a product called CC’Me (Calm and Cool Me) to calm and cool your skin before and after removing your hair. It is a pure and natural blend of Shea butter, Carapa Procera Oil (a fruit sourced in Africa whose oil has invigorating, emollient, nourishing and analgesic properties), sunflower seed oil and others. Apply CC’Me 15 minutes prior to your sugaring treatment to ease discomfort and calm potential reactions on all areas of the body. Apply post-treatment by massaging a small amount of CC’Me to the treatment area.
Tiny red spots may appear on the skin for a few hours. If this should happen, do not be alarmed. This is a natural reaction caused when hair is removed by the root. It will disappear quickly. The bigger the root, the bigger the spot. As your hair is refined, the spots will become smaller.
