Many people confuse sugaring with waxing. While both methods remove hair from the root, sugaring is an all-natural, non-abrasive technique recommended for individuals with more sensitive skin. Newly announced services at Penelope and the Beauty Bar’s sugaring and waxing spa ensure men and women receive the ideal facial and body hair removal treatment for their needs.

“We offer the most advanced skincare and body treatments available,” says a spa spokesperson. “Our treatments include premier, results-driven facials, sugaring, waxing, nail services, and hair and makeup services.”

Sugaring is a technique that uses a mixture of sugar, lemon and water heated to just above body temperature to produce a paste that is applied in the opposite direction of hair growth. The paste is then removed in the same direction as hair growth using swift, small pulls. This method exfoliates the surface of the skin only and is therefore the gentler of the two techniques.

Waxing uses a mixture of beeswax, rosin oils, resin, and other ingredients to produce either a hard or soft material – depending on the treatment – which is applied in the direction hair grows and removed in the opposite direction.

Sugaring and waxing both offer exfoliating benefits that are superior to what chemical hair removal products produce because there is no threat of allergic reaction. Both will also result in smooth, hair-free, fully exfoliated skin, and both are preferable to shaving.

Sugaring and waxing treatments at Penelope and the Beauty Bar offer expert hair removal for the lip, chin, nose, jawline, brow, or full face. The spa also offers body hair removal services for the bikini area, abdomen, buttocks, arms, legs, back, and even sideburns. First-time and maintenance Brazilian treatments are also available.

A recent customer says, “A serene skincare oasis in the city that offers treatments that leave your skin feeling revitalized, refreshed, and rejuvenated. I highly recommend their body exfoliation, which is followed by a moisturizing balm that is completely calming and hydrating. Such friendly and professional service. Five stars.”
