At The Skin And Body Refinery, we offer a wide range of products and services that are designed to make you feel beautiful, inside and out. Body sugaring, sugar waxing, sugaring, or Persian waxing is the ancient art of hair removal that has been used by civilizations for centuries. The product itself is completely natural and made from a mixture of lemon, sugar, and water which is then combined to form a thick paste which resembles honey. At the Skin And Body Refinery, our knowledgeable technicians use a freehand method that is safe for all skin types. Your technician will apply the paste to your skin against the direction of the hair growth before removing it in a quick flicking motion to extract both the hair and any dead skin cells. Because the procedure is performed by hand, it allows the hair to be removed in the direction of hair growth which not only results in less hair breakage; it also allows your technician to remove finer hairs for a smoother finish. The procedure is completely sanitary using individually portioned products, and once your service is complete, you will experience the thrill of beautifully smooth, irresistibly soft skin.
How Long Does Body Sugaring Last?
For the best possible results, we recommend you book your appointment when the hair is approximately 1/8” long. This is the beginning stage of hair growth which is known as the Anagen Phase. Once the hair is extracted it will take much longer to grow back. Your skilled technician will recommend at least three regular appointments to allow the hair to be “trained” to grow at a consistent rate.
Regularly Recommended Sugaring Hair Removal Applications
Facial Sugaring: Upper Lip- 3 to 4 weeks, Eyebrows- 2 to 4 weeks, Underarm- 3 to 5 weeks, Chin- 2 to 4 weeks, Sides and Neck- 4 weeks
Upper Body Sugaring: Arms and Hands- 8 to 10 weeks, Stomach- 3 to 5 weeks, Back- 4 to 6 weeks
Lower Body Sugaring: Lower Leg- 3 to 6 weeks, Upper Leg- 6 to 8 weeks, Feet- 6 to 8 weeks, Bikini- 3 to 5 weeks

Pre and Post Body Sugaring Care
The sugar paste never adheres to the live skin cells so it is safe for all skin types, including the most sensitive, however the dead skin cells will be gently exfoliated as the hair is removed. We do ask that you refrain from exfoliating your skin the day before your appointment as this may cause skin irritation. We also recommend that you avoid using any beauty products including creams and lotions on the day of your appointment. Your Skin and Body Refinery technician will explain how to care for your skin between treatments and will also advise you on the correct exfoliation and moisturizing products for your skin type. We recommend avoiding the use of perfumes, scented creams & lotions, deodorant (for underarm aftercare), direct sunlight, and tanning beds directly after your body sugaring treatment.
