Sugaring versus Waxing

Sugaring FAQ

What is the difference between sugar wax and traditional wax?

Sugaring paste is an all-natural soft wax made out of sugar, water, & lemon juice. It’s even edible! Sugar wax is stable at room temperature and never has to be heated, so there are no burn risks.


On the other hand, traditional wax is a hard wax full of chemical ingredients, including resins & preservatives. It must be heated for use and is applied warm to the skin, risking burns if handled improperly.

Is your sugar paste organic?

Yes, all of our waxing products are certified 100% organic and natural. In fact, every batch of SugarBare sugar paste is made daily by employee Trista Carter.


We also carry a variety of hand-made, organic, natural products for you to use between treatments. View our Products.

Does sugaring hurt?

Unlike traditional wax, sugar paste cannot adhere to live skin cells. Live skin cells are wet, and because sugar paste is water soluble, it will not adhere to live skin cells. This means less discomfort for you and little to no irritation.


Alternatively, wax is not water soluble, meaning it adheres to both live skin cells and hair. This makes waxing more painful & irritating overall.

What are the benefits of sugaring?

An added benefit of sugaring is that it removes dead (as opposed to living) skin cells – so not only is your skin left smooth and fuzz free, but it also leaves you soft and silky from the exfoliation. Like we often say: sugaring is the sweet side of hair removal!


Sugar paste is also gentle enough to go over the same area multiple times, so it’s good at targeting stubborn stray hairs without causing damage or irritation.


Finally, because the paste is water soluble, no oils or removers are needed to clean the skin post-treatment. The bottom line is that sugaring is less messy, less painful, and better for you than waxing!

How long to the results of sugaring last?

Skin stays smoother longer than alternative methods of hair removal.


After your first sugaring treatment, the hair follicle begins to deplete. The hair grows in more refined each time. Because sugar can extract such short hair – it is possible to extract the hair in the early growth phase, which can lead to permanency. Also, because the hair is removed in the direction of hair growth (unlike traditional wax), the sugar paste is able to remove much shorter hairs without the risk of breaking hairs in the process.

Is sugaring safe for the whole body?

Because sugaring is less painful, less abrasive, and less irritating than traditional waxing – even hair removal from your most intimate areas doesn’t have to be a scary situation. It’s safe and natural for the whole body!


From brows to Brazilians and everything in between, we offer of a variety of hair removal services for both women and men. View our full service menu here.

Are your estheticians licensed?

Yes, all of SugarBare’s estheticians are fully licensed by the Georgia State Board of Cosmetology.

Is the sugar paste reused?

No! Our process is 100% sanitary. A single ball of sugar is used throughout the treatment. The sugar paste is then disposed of. This eliminates the possible threat of double dipping which has been associated with waxing.


We also pride ourselves on our sanitation standards. A clean, comfortable, safe environment for every client is our promise to you.
