For Hair Removal: Sugaring vs. Waxing

Just One of the Services That Make Soul Spa Special
By Dr. Raj Gupta

When I was looking for the right people to help bring my vision for a Soul Focus Spa to fruition, I was fortunate enough to meet Massage and Body Work Therapist Giovana Castillo.  Her years of experience with the all-natural hair removal system of Sugaring, as well as her extensive knowledge of massage techniques and more, made me certain she was a perfect fit for our Soul Focus philosophy which strives to blend both traditional and alternative medicines and practices.

After seeing a demonstration of her Sugar hair remove technique, I did some research into this alternative to traditional waxing practices.  What I learned was that body Sugaring has been practiced in the Middle East for Centuries, and is extremely effective on all skin types and hair textures for both men and women.  It is particularly useful for people with sensitive skin and for use on delicate areas of the body.

To confirm what I learned, I spoke with many of her long-time clients and what I found is that Sugaring is indeed superior to waxing.  First off, Sugaring paste is a blend of natural ingredients and contains no chemical additives so there is no fear of harmful side effects.  This is something very important to me, as Soul Focus strives to utilize natural and healthier alternatives in all of our services.

The second important factor for our choice of using Sugar instead of wax is how well it works.  Giovana’s clients rave that a hair removal session with her products doesn’t hurt as much as with waxing.  In addition, Sugar removes dead skin cells as well as hair which leave the skin looking and feeling smoother.  They also say their skin stays smoother longer and over time, the hairs in the areas that have been Sugared grow in less thick.

I am so excited about this truly progressive method that is both gentler and safer than waxing.  It just is one of the new all-natural services we are proud to offer at Soul Spa.  There is also Microdermabrasion which uses pure flower grains to regenerate and revitalize the skin in a non-invasive manner. We also offer a wide range of specialized massaged treatments including Therapy Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Hot Stone Massage and Prenatal Massage and more.

Why Sugaring is Superior:

  • Sugaring Paste is a blend of all natural ingredients with no chemical additives
  • It is less painful than waxing and useful for sensitive skin and delicate areas
  • Removes dead skin cells as well as hair leaving the skin looking a feeling smother
  • Lasts longer than waxing and slows the growth of hair over time
