Say goodbye to tired and painful hair removal methods (like waxing) and try something a little bit sweeter — sugaring, the alternative to waxing that you’ve been looking for!

A Little Sugar Doesn’t Hurt

There are a lot of different ways to remove unwanted hair. However, many of these ways are painful, messy and temporary. Getting smooth, flawless skin doesn’t have to be a painful process. Remove the ouch from your beauty routine by saying goodbye to painful hair removal options like waxing.

Wax is an adhesive, so it actually adheres to your skin. When you remove the hair, you will feel a lot of pain and the process can actually damage, burn or scar your skin due to the hot wax. At Expressions we have a better way to smooth skin that not only removes unwanted hair, but leaves your skin feeling healthy and beautiful long after treatment.

Instead of dealing with hot wax, the sugaring process requires no heat and is performed at body temperature so it will not burn or damage delicate skin. When the sugar paste is removed, it gently exfoliates dead skin cells, leaving behind skin that’s beautiful and smooth instead of irritated and inflamed.

A Permanent Way To Hair Reduction

Unlike other hair removal methods that only work as a temporary fix, sugaring can help to  permanently reduce hair growth. Over time, you’ll not only get smooth skin like you’ve never had before, but you’ll notice that you’ll require fewer treatments to remove hair and keep it gone!
