Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect during a sugar treatment?
I will conduct a consultation with you at the beginning of your first appointment.
This will address any contraindications, discover your hair removal goals and may include a treatment plan.
The area to be treated will first be prepared with the pre-sugaring products.
During your treatment, I will provide education on the process and after care requirements.
The aftercare products will then be applied and I will advise you of the optimal rebooking timeframe.
What you won’t experience is irritation, burning or any skin tearing, which is common with waxing. Sugaring is so gentle many people feel nothing once the treatment is over.
I have sensitive skin. Can I still be sugared?
For one, sugar paste is applied at body temperature.
It does not stick to the skin which means less trauma to the skin on removal.
Sugar paste is also hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic.
Sugar is a natural preservative and healer. The post and after care products are anti-microbial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and cell regenerating. These properties have a soothing and calming effect on the skin.
How does sugaring help with prevention of ingrown hairs?
Sugaring is a skin conditioning treatment. It not only removes the hair in the natural direction of growth (reducing the amount of breakage), it also removes any dead skin cells that may be causing follicle blockages. As sugar seeps into the skin, it has the ability to clear out the follicle of dead skin cells as well.
Can the hair removal by sugaring last forever?
While I cannot guarantee this, in many cases, sugaring can lead to permanency.
What makes sugaring different than waxing?
Sugaring is longer-lasting, exfoliates while removing the first layer of dead skin cells, and is 100% pure and organic. It is more sanitary because there is no double dipping. Additionally, shorter hair can be extracted. Sugaring is water-soluble and easy to remove from clothing.
What if I have special health considerations?
As your well-being & safety is of the utmost importance at Interlude Beauty, you will be asked to fill up a CONFIDENTIAL consultation form prior to your appointment ( via text message) – this is to provide you with the best possible experience and to assure your maximum safety and comfort.

What should I do after my treatment?
You will receive instructions during your appointment and you will receive an email with the aftercare tips
Do I need to do anything before my sugaring appointment?
The following recommendations will help you to achieve the best possible results from your sugaring treatments. BEFORE:
Please exfoliate the area 2 days prior.
Do not tan or exercise before your treatment.
Do not apply cream or lotions to the treatment area 24hrs prior to treatment.
Do not use razors or depilatory creams between treatments.
If you are on antibiotics, suspect you may have a virus or certain times in your menstrual cycle can make you more sensitive.
What if I want to return a product?
Please choose your product carefully. Interlude Beauty does not refund or swap any used products.
When goods are proven to be faulty, you may receive a refund or an exchange.
What should I wear?
Loose clothes is best after your treatment.
Disposable underwear is provided.
Can all areas be sugared?
Yes, with the exception of the inner ear and network beards.
Network beards are where the hair criss crosses under the skin and extracting the hair in one direction could cause tearing of the follicle, resulting in folliculitis.
Other contraindications to sugaring hair removal can include: Enlarged Varicose Veins, Phlebitis, New Scars, Sunburn, Warts, Bruises or Lesions and Skin Tags.
Does sugaring hurt?
If this is your first time sugaring and you have been previously using a razor, your first treatment will be the most uncomfortable.
Everyone’s pain tolerance is different but most people find that sugaring hurts less than waxing (especially on the face).
This is because sugaring does NOT adhere to live skin and it is removed in the direction of hair growth. You can feel discomfort during the application of the paste. But I will walk you through the whole process, so you'd knoiw what to expect!
Don’t give up! Sugaring weakens the hair root making it easier to remove the hair with each treatment. By your third sugaring treatment, you too will find it virtually pain free!
The great thing about sugaring is that the more you do it, the less it hurts because the hair grows back thinner and less dense. Less hair means less discomfort!
