What is Sugaring?
Sugaring is a unique and innovative process for the removal of unwanted facial and body hair. At New Image Day Spa, we use Alexandria Sugar Paste. Our estheticians are also Certified Alexandria Professionals, trained by the only sugar epilating company to be approved by a National Accrediting Company NACCAS (National Accrediting Commission of Cosmetology Arts & Sciences).
The sugaring method of hair removal is a safe, virtually pain-free and effective solution for both women and men. It works by extracting hair in its natural direction of growth and does so when the hair is still in the early growth stage, eliminating breakage, unnecessary discomfort, irritation and ingrown hairs, while exfoliating dry skin cells. The result is smooth, beautiful skin, without the discomforts of other hair removal techniques.
Keep in mind that when our technicians use the Sugaring method of hair removal, they have received specialized education, and it often takes longer and is physically more strenuous for them to perform this service. This is why the sugaring method has a slightly higher service price.
Sugaring will help:
- eliminate ingrown hairs
- prevent new ingrown hairs
- extract all hair colors and textures
- successfully treat all skin types and colors
- improve the skin tone and texture
Sugaring from Alexandria Professional has a lot of benefits over body waxing…
Here are the top reasons why!
Our Sugaring Formulas are 100% natural.
Alexandria sugar paste is 100% natural with no chemical additives, no wax resins and no essential oils, Also, we could not endorse that our sugar pastes are deliciously edible if there were additives that could cause adverse reactions to some individuals.
Our Sugar Pastes do not stick to live skin cells.
The Alexandria Technique gently exfoliates dead skin cells away and is gentle enough to go over the same area of skin, ensuring that you get a perfect finish every time, even on delicate skin tissue areas like underarms and bikini areas.
Sugaring Treatments are economical as compared to Laser.
Most clients see an immediate improvement, after the first or second sugaring, in body hair refinement and in many cases diminishment while improving the condition of their skin without the big price tag associated with other body hair removal alternatives.
Our Sugar Pastes are 100% water-soluble.
There is no risk of damage or staining to client’s clothes, and more importantly, no damage to your skin. The Alexandria sugar paste is easily washed away after sugaring with lukewarm water. You will leave your sugaring treatments feeling clean and smooth… one less thing for you to worry or think about
The Alexandria Sugar Pastes are 100% hygienic.
We never re-use the sugar paste; it is always discarded after each client is treated. Another great benefit to the Alexandria Sugar Paste is that bacteria do not breed in high concentrates of sugar eliminating the possibility of contamination.
Sugaring is applied onto the skin by hand at lukewarm temperature.
No risk of burning your skin! This is where the sugaring magic begins to happen with our clients. When the sugar paste is massaged onto the skin, it allows the paste to seep into the follicles which in turn allows the body hair to “slide” out more comfortably for a complete extraction without body hair breakage. Side effect… some clients actually fall asleep during sugaring. Now that’s smoooooth…!!
Our success is demonstrated on both genders of all ages, all skin colors and all body hair textures.
From fair skin and fine hair types to the toughest skin and hair type, and from 6 years of age to 87 years of age, we have extracted every body hair type with incredible results using our Alexandria Professional™ technique.
No need to shave between sugaring treatments and no need to let your hair grow, grow, grow.
The Alexandria technique requires at least 1/4 inch of hair growth for body treatments, eliminating the long wait between hair removal visits and customer frustration. It is recommended to pre-trim the hair with trimmers or scissors down to 1/4 inch, prior to the service.

It is our challenge to you to try sugaring once and you will never wax again!
Is there really a difference between traditional hot waxing and sugaring?
Quite a bit actually…
Body wax products are very different from sugaring products. Sugaring legs and bodies requires an entirely different mind-set and approach from waxing legs and bodies. For instance, did you know…
Waxing products for legs, faces and bodies adhere to skin cells…
This is one of the major differences between sugaring and waxing legs and other more sensitive areas. Wax products are made of resins which adhere to skin cells on legs and bodies. Because wax sticks to any surface it is applied to, pulling it away causes unwarranted discomfort.
Alexandria Professional sugaring products never adhere to live skin cells on bodies, faces, or legs. Therefore, when it is removed, it only gently exfoliates dead skin cells, leaving behind freshened skin on legs, bodies, and faces.
Additionally, because sugaring paste is all natural and water soluble, it can be easily rinsed away if it is accidentally flicked on a client’s clothes or on the massage table.
When waxing legs and bodies, you remove the hair against the natural direction of growth causing undue levels of pain.
With Alexandria Professional’s sugaring method, you only remove the hair in the natural direction of the hair growth. Plus, through the Alexandria Pro sugaring application technique, the sugar paste seeps into the hair follicle. This helps lubricate the hair root regardless of whether it’s on the legs or anywhere else on your client.
These two facts alone can make a world of difference in comfort for your clients. This is especially important for clients who have suffered in the past with waxing in sensitive areas.
The healthy difference between all natural sugaring versus chemicals for waxing legs and bodies…
Alexandria Professional Sugaring Paste is all natural. In fact, the only ingredients are pure sugar, water and lemon. That’s it. It’s even edible and delicious, and it’s a wonderful treatment for the skin.
Most products used for waxing legs and full bodies are made from petroleum based resins and chemicals making them prone to contamination or cross-contamination.
No risk of burning sensitive skin areas with sugaring…
Waxing the legs or any area of your client that uses or requires hot wax risks burning sensitive skin. There’s just no way around that. While women are used to this risk, men are often intimidated by the idea of hot wax on their chest, legs, face, back and other areas. With sugaring, the risk of burning is completely eliminated.
