Transcript:Pros and Cons of Sugaring

Hi! I'm Michelle, a Licensed Aesthetician here to talk to you today about the pros and cons of sugaring.

Information About Sugaring for Hair Removal

Sugaring is a way to remove some unwanted hair just like waxing. The pros to sugaring are you can remove large areas of hair at once. As it does not dry and harden like wax does, you do not have to go over small areas, you can do large areas at a time, making it quicker and more efficient to waxing.

Pros of Sugaring

Also, sugaring has a water-soluble base unlike waxing. So it's easy to remove any leftover residue. Another pro to sugaring is that it can be redone over any missed hairs without causing skin irritation like waxing.

Also overtime, using sugaring can lead to a more permanent removal of hair, as it can cause damage to the hair follicle and prevent future hair grow.

Cons of Sugaring

A con to sugaring is even though most salons offer sugaring it is hard to find the real method. Another con is getting just the right consistency. This can be very tricky. And as doing it at home, getting just the right consistency is key, so that it will hold on to the hair in order to remove it. A major con to sugaring is lack of knowledge or cleanliness can lead to disaster such a skin infection.

Those are the pros and cons of sugaring.
