Penelope and the Beauty Bar is proud to be a front runner in bringing the Ancient Egyptian method of Sugaring to the Seattle area.
Sugaring is an all natural, nearly painless method of removing unwanted hair. Consisting of only sugar, water and lemon, it is hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, and gentle on even the most sensitive skin. The sugaring method is safe and effective for every hair and skin type, leaves skin feeling smooth and clean, increases hair softness, and reduces hair growth.
Our sugar paste is warmed to just above body temperature, ensuring there is no risk of burning or swelling. Sugar grabs the hairs by the root, and extracts them in the same direction of hair growth, meaning no hair breakage, leaving you smoother for longer. It removes dead skin cells, and does not adhere to your live skin, which greatly reduces the pain, redness and irritation. Since it’s water-soluble, there is virtually no mess after your service, as it dissolves immediately when water is applied.
HAIR REMOVAL PREPARATION
Get the most out of your hair removal services with the following tips:
HAIR LENGTH: It is important to come into your hair removal service with at least 1/4 inch of growth, in order to effectively remove your hair. If your hair growth is not sufficient for removal, you will have to be rescheduled.
COMFORT: Our highly-trained Estheticians work hard to give our guests the most gentle and painless service possible. Because each of our guests have different levels of tolerance and sensitivity, we offer numbing gel available for purchase. Other precautions you can take to reduce discomfort:
Avoid caffeine/alcohol the day of your service, as it increases blood flow and sensitivity. Avoid applying makeup to freshly-sugared skin, which can cause infection or irritation. Ibuprofen or Aspirin before your service can help reduce pain and prevent swelling.
SHAVING: However tempting it may be to get rid of the stubble that grows in between appointments, shaving is counterproductive to sugaring and waxing. Because hair grows on separate cycles, shaving ensures a more uneven result. Shaving causes the texture of your hair to feel more thick, sharp and coarse, negating some of the major benefits of sugaring. Shaving can cause irritation and ingrown hairs. Lastly, shaving will make your next sugaring appointment more painful.
EXFOLIATION: Use an exfoliating scrub or ointment regularly between your treatments, and on the day of to help prevent ingrown hairs, and to keep your skin and hair follicles soft and smooth.
LOTIONS/OILS: Keep your skin free of any lotions/oils on the day of your service. Oils/lotions can act as a lubricant on hair follicles, making it difficult for the sugar to adhere properly. After your service, only apply gentle, perfume and chemical free lotion as needed.
TANNING: Tanning (in the sun or in a bed) the day of your appointment leaves your skin extra sensitive, which can lead to more pain and irritation. If the hair removal area will be exposed to sun the following day, make sure to use high SPF sunscreen.
Alternatively, getting sugared right after spray tanning will remove your tan anywhere that the sugar is applied. Always get your spray tan at least 24 hours after having hair removed.
EXERCISE: Sweating, chaffing, and high body temperature can cause a freshly sugared area to become irritated, swollen, sensitive, and cause ingrown hairs. Wait at least 24 hours before working out.
MAINTENANCE: Sugaring reduces hair growth over time. Book your hair removal appointments on a regular maintenance schedule (every 4-6 weeks) to ensure the smoothest result and most painless service possible.
