How often should I sugar?

  • As often as every 3 weeks. Sugaring can remove hairs as short as 1/8 of an inch in what's called the antigen stage. Frequent visits help deplete the hair follicle over time, which results in treatments becoming less frequent. (Results will vary from person to person.)

  • You must have at least two weeks of hair growth after shaving.

Can I sugar if i'm pregnant?

  • Absolutely. SugaringLA uses only biodegradable, hypoallergenic products. Free of chemicals, resins and toxins.

  • For sure. Some clients, however, can occasionally be a bit more sensitive this time of the month…feel free to inform your Sugarist.

Can I sugar if I’m using retin-a or renova?

  • These products cause thinning and shedding of the skin. It’s suggested to wait, 25 days after the initial shedding process has ended.
