Why Choose Sugaring?

If you haven’t heard about sugaring yet — sugar waxing as some call it — you’ll want to read on! 

For the longest time, the only options for removing stubborn hair were shaving, Brazilian waxing, and expensive lasers. But now, there’s an alternative option called “sugaring.” Sugaring consistently removes hair directly from the hair follicle leading to a cleaner, longer lasting extraction and is much less harsh on the skin.

What Is Sugaring?

Sugaring is a gentler alternative to the traditional Brazilian waxing procedures offered at most Philadelphia salons. During a sugaring service, patients have their skin cleaned and powdered before the esthetician grabs a glob of sugar paste to aid in the hair-removal process. The sugar paste made only of sugar, water, and lemon juice is applied evenly over the desired area, then the esthetician utilizes a flicking motion to remove hair.

How Is Sugaring Different From Waxing?

For so many reasons, clients prefer sugaring over waxing.  Just a few are listed here:


  • Wax is Hot & Sugar Paste is Not — It’s Applied at Body Temperature
  • Sugaring is Less Painful Because, Unlike Wax, Sugar Paste Does Not Adhere to Live Skin Cells
  • Sugar Paste is All Natural & is Technically Edible (we don’t recommend of course), Unlike Chemical-Based Wax Products
  • Sugaring Removes Hair in the Natural Direction of Growth — Not Against the Grain
