What are the main differences between body sugaring and waxing?

1. Alexandria Professional Sugaring products do not adhere to live skin cells.

This is one of the major differences between body sugaring and waxing. Wax is made from resins, which adhere to skin cells and any surface it is applied to, and pulling it away causes unwarranted pain. Alexandria Professional® sugaring products never adhere to live skin cells, therefore, when it is removed, it only gently exfoliates dead skin cells, leaving behind silky smooth skin. It is water-soluble and can be easily rinsed away if needed.

2. The Alexandria Professional Sugaring Technique extracts hair in its natural direction of growth.

When waxing, you remove the hair against the natural direction of growth causing unnecessary pain. With sugaring, you only remove the hair in the natural direction of the hair growth. Plus, through the Alexandria body sugaring application technique, the sugar paste seeps into the hair follicle, helping to lubricate the hair root for ease of removal.

3. Alexandria Professional Body Sugaring is performed at body temperature.

Alexandria Professional® advanced sugar pastes adhere to the hair, not the skin, and lubricate the root for easier extraction from the follicle. Combined with the hair removal in the natural direction of growth, Alexandria Professional sugaring means a much more comfortable experience for everyone.
