Contraindications

 
 

Sugaring is exfoliating. It is therefore extremely important to read these contraindications before getting a service.

  • Sunburned, irritated, or areas with open skin cannot be sugared.

  • You must wait a minimum of seven (7) days after a light chemical peel or microdermabrasion treatment before being sugared.

  • Sugaring cannot be performed if you have been in a tanning booth on the same day.

  • Sugaring cannot be performed if you have had laser skin resurfacing within the past year.

  • Sugaring cannot be performed if you have had a physician administered peel within the past two (2) years.

Please have a doctor clear you for sugaring if you are taking medications that thin the skin (such as Retin-A), blood thinners, or medications that cause you to be sun-sensitive.  Some of these include:
