Sugaring

To ensure a successful waxing experience, please read and follow these instructions.
WARNING: sugaring is never done on clients taking Accutane and is not recommended for clients taking Retin A, Renova, Differin or other types of skin thinning acne medications. Please read the label carefully and consult your dermatologist if you are taking any medication or using any topical cream that contains these medications. Individuals do react differently to these medications and sometimes waxing can be done if proper patch testing is completed.
  • Accutane (Acne medication) – You must be off this medication treatment course a minimum of 6 months prior to sugaring.
  • Adapalene (Acne medication)
  • Alustra (Retin A)

  • Tazarotene (See Tazorac)
  • Tretinoin (See Retin A)
CAUTION: If you are currently using any of the following, please inform your technician. These products can make the skin more sensitive. Thin, sensitive skin is more vulnerable to lifting and sensitivity during waxing.
  • Other Acne medications not listed above
  • Bleaching agents for hair (used mostly for upper lip)

  • You must wait a minimum of seven (7) days before sugaring after a light chemical peel or Microdermabrasion.
  • Sugaring cannot be performed if you have had laser skin resurfacing within the past 6 months.
  • If irritation should occur, recommend you use an antibiotic ointment such as Neosporin to keep the area continually moist to avoid infection and scabbing.
  • No hot baths for 24 hours following a body sugaring treatment.
  • No abrasives for 24 hours following a sugaring treatment.
  • No deodorants for 24 hours following an underarm sugaring  treatment.

I love sugaring, they do a great job, have a great facility, and it’s relatively painless and lasts long! I have sensitive skin and I’m not even red after my appointments! Will definitely be returning.

I went to this location and this may sound strange, but I’m excited to go back!. I had done sugaring before, just not a Brazilian. It was slightly painful since it was my first time and I was extra bushy  but my next session should be smoooooth.

Just moved to Chicago and luckily booked Brittany for my first time. She is very friendly and informative of the whole process. I am 8 months pregnant now so imagine the level of sensitivity she deals with for me and each time she’s so patient. She gives you a mirror to check if everything is up to par also and then will fix if she needs to! Great experience at this location !!

Very conveniently located by my office, so stopped in during my lunch break one day. Very fast service, super clean, and staff was very friendly and made me feel comfortable. Was my first time visiting, and will definitely not be my last.

Found this gem when I was looking for sugaring salons near me. They had a really good combo deal going and I wanted to try it. Booked a sugaring session with Cindy. It’s a beautiful salon with really amazing prices. The waiting room is super clean and spacious, Kaylee, the receptionist was super sweet as well & I was greeted with a new client welcome bag.

I went in as a walk in customer and I should’ve saved my time and money. I asked for a clean up on my brows. During the service I asked for additional hairs to be removed multiple times. The tweezers had seen better days.
