About your Hair
Your hair should be between 3 and 5mm in length if you are new to sugar waxing. Once practiced in a regular cycle you can sugar wax hair even shorter than 2mm.
It is possible to become permanently hairless if being sugar wax correctly and regularly. How long this will take depends on several factors. As every human being is an individual there are individual hair types and growth pattern. It could be the case that you have hairless patches already after a few treatments whereas others may need many more. Hormones and many other factors can influence hair growth. Depending on the body area the number of treatments leading to permanency will vary.
Generally, after sugarwaxed, it can last between 4-6 weeks. Depending on the level of hair growth and how regular you sugarwaxed. This varies from one person to another and is also depending on the body area. Hair growth will not necessarily be equally distributed and hair grows at different rates.
Other factors play a role in hair growth as well, for example, your genetics, your hormones and your lifestyle. However, repeated sugar wax treatments ever weaken the hair system so re-growth gets sparser with time and can even lead to permanency.
Properly extracting hair does not make it grow back thicker or darker. A hair that becomes darker and heavier – as seen on women’s facial hair generally in the upper lip and chin area, is predetermined to do so or has been prompted to change into a terminal hair by one of several factors such as, but not limited to, hormones.

Sugarwaxed caters to many pregnant clients but one non-negotiable requirement is that you check with your gynaecologist before your session, so please do so before requesting an appointment.
Remember to mention your pregnancy when you book in so we can better prepare your treatment. By making an appointment, Sugarwaxed will consider that you’ve taken note of all the necessary requirements and precautions.
We generally recommend waiting 1 to 3 months (natural) or 3 to 6 months (caesarean) after giving birth before popping in for a session. It is, however, entirely dependent on the method of childbirth and on your and your gynaecologist’s opinions. In most cases, once Mothers are up for it and have their doctor’s approval (written for <1 month post-natural and <3 months post-caesarean), they’re welcome to book in. Contact us for more information.
We’d recommend that you consult your physician before making an appointment if you’re under any medication. Certain ingredients can alter your skin’s condition, making it more susceptible to tearing and irritation, so it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
As these topical products can make skin more susceptible to tearing and irritation, we refrain from sugar waxing treated areas and ask that you wait at least three months after discontinuation before having them sugar wax.
Unfortunately, we don’t perform any sugar waxing services for clients on accutane or similar medication. Because their ingredients are known to cause drying and thinning of the skin, there is a high risk of permanent skin damage associated with epilation. We strongly advise that you wait 3 to 6 months after discontinuation Accutane before getting sugar waxed. We would highly recommend a patch test before proceeding.
