Featured Image

Sugar waxing (or sugaring) is an increasingly popular method of removing body hair. At Body Werks Chicago, one of the South Loop's hottest sugar wax bars, our team has expertise in treating all areas of the body to give you the smoothest experience possible. We even offer a Brazilian Sugar Wax.

Below, we'll look at how sugar waxing works and how it can be used to remove body hair safely from just about anywhere.

What is sugar waxing, and how is it different from regular waxing?

Sugar waxing is different from regular waxing in a few key ways. The primary difference is the ingredients. Sugar wax is made from sugar, lemon, and water. Regular waxing involves beeswax, resin, oils, and other additives, which can sometimes irritate sensitive skin.

The major difference between these two waxing techniques is the method in which the product is applied. Sugar wax is applied against the hair growth and removed in the direction of the growth. Regular waxing does the opposite. This is important because regular waxing procedures can be extremely painful for some clients.

Fortunately, sugaring's ingredients and application make it less painful and leave minimal bumps behind. Sugaring is also far less likely to lead to ingrown hairs. In other words, it's ideal for those with sensitive skin who want to avoid the pain of regular waxes. In both cases, waxing results typically last 3 – 4 weeks.

Can sugar waxing be used on the bikini area?

Sugaring can be done just about anywhere on the body, including all the same places where you would get a regular wax. At Body Werks Chicago, our team offers Brazilian Sugar Wax for your most sensitive areas.

Sugaring the pubic region is a much less painful option than regular waxing. It also removes the whole hair, including the bulb, for results that can last up to a month.

Even better, the more you get sugared, the longer the results tend to last. They also tend to get more comfortable over time. So, if you're a regular customer, you may start to see the results of your Brazilian Sugar Wax last a month or longer.

Why a Brazilian Sugar Wax is the best way to stay smooth

If you're looking for a more natural and less painful way to remove body hair, including pubic hair, give sugaring a try. You can avoid additives that might irritate sensitive skin and reduce your chances of getting stubborn ingrown hairs that can be painful and lead to scarring.

Sugaring paste is also great because it's a cool solution and doesn't need to be warmed like regular wax. This can also decrease your chances of discomfort or accidental burns. The paste is designed to stick to hair and not to skin. So, while sugaring may exfoliate your top layer of skin, it does so gently and can be reapplied in the same place repeatedly without causing irritation. This helps you get the smoothest possible skin without having to worry about stray hairs.
