Sugaring Hair Removal


Downtown Smooth Esthetics is an Alexandria Professional Certified Sugaring Hair Removal spa. Alexandria Professional® is very proud to be the pioneers of professional body sugaring hair removal into the beauty industry worldwide! We have grown in popularity for more than twenty years as a safe and effective quality alternative form of epilation.


Professional Body Sugaring Skin Epilation is a safe, gentle and effective solution to hair extraction for women, men and children. Advanced Body Sugaring Epilation offers numerous unique and diverse benefits.

The most important advantage is very fundamental: the Alexandria technique and sugar paste formulation extracts the hair in its natural direction of growth while the hair is still in the early growth stage (Anagen stage). This eliminates hair breakage, unnecessary discomfort, irritation and ingrown hairs while exfoliating dry skin cells.


The results of Alexandria Professional® Body Sugaring Products? Smooth, beautiful skin, without the discomforts of other epilation techniques.


Body Sugar Vs. Wax

People often ask us, “Is there really a difference between waxing and sugaring?” The answer is yes, and quite a bit actually…

 

AP Sugaring Products are very different from waxing products.

Sugaring unwanted facial and body hair requires an entirely different mind-set and approach from waxing. For instance, did you know…


AP sugaring products do not adhere to live 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. Because wax sticks to any surface it is applied to, pulling it away can cause unwarranted pain. 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 silky smooth skin.


Additionally, because AP sugaring paste is all natural and water soluble, it can be easily rinsed away if needed.


AP sugaring technique extracts hair in its natural direction of growth…

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 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 make a world of difference in comfort for the client. This is especially important for clients who have suffered in the past with waxing in sensitive areas.


The healthy difference between AP’s natural sugar pastes versus chemicals for waxing legs and bodies…

Alexandria Professional® Sugaring Paste is all natural. It’s even edible and delicious. Our sugar pastes are very safe and skin friendly.


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 AP sugaring…


Waxing the legs or other areas on a client using hot wax runs the risk of 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, or back.


AP sugaring is performed at body temperature. Alexandria Professional® advanced sugar pastes adhere to the hair, not the skin, and lubricate the root for easier extraction from the follicle. Combined with the hair removal in the natural direction of growth, AP sugaring means a much more comfortable experience for everyone.

NuFree Hair Removal


Downtown Smooth Esthetics offers the Nufree and finipil Antibacterial, Antimicrobial NO-Wax Hair Removal System. Since Nufree is not a wax, it does not stick to the skin like traditional strip wax, reducing the pain, redness and swelling caused by other waxes.


When Nufree is used in conjunction with finipil, an antiseptic cream that kills 99.999% of bacteria, clients will see results that last for weeks. Finipil protects empty hair follicles and when used daily, actually slows hair growth. It has also been proven to shrink pore size and prevent ingrown hairs. Finipil is dermatologist researched, tested and approved.

Frequently Asked Questions:
1) If Nufree isn’t a wax, what is it?
Nufree is a natural, self-preserving antibacterial/antimicrobial, anhydrous botanical formula. It contains no wax, no sugar and no honey.
2) How long has Nufree been in existence?
Nufree has been used in thousands of salons for over 30 years.
3) How safe is Nufree?
Nufree was originally formulated for plastic surgeons who required hair removal for their patients prior to surgery. Nufree was scientifically tested for over 10 years.
4) Why is there less/no pain with Nufree?
Nufree never dries and doesn’t stick to the skin, so it doesn’t pull or cause painful irritation.
5) Why do I need finipil after my treatments?
Finipil helps shrink the empty follicle, keeps it clean and slows hair re-growth.
6) How long do the results last?
Results can be seen immediately. After your first two treatments, regrowth is lighter and softer. If finipil is applied, you will initially return in four to six weeks. With each additional treatment where finipil has been applied, you will experience one third less growth each time.
7) Why can’t I do it myself?
Deep hair removal is not a home treatment. Amazing long-term results are achieved because the process is performed by a trained professional. Finipil helps perpetuate the results achieved through your Nufree treatment.
