Sugaring Contraindications

Sugaring Contraindications

Depilation has long gathered a large army of fans around the world. Sugar paste removal of unwanted hairs is a popular trend in beauty salons. However, any cosmetic procedure is not without contraindications.

First of all, any skin damage

Any Sugaring spa will refuse to treat if there is skin damage.

These include:

  •  abrasions
  •  small wounds
  •  ulcerative inflammation

As soon as the skin is completely healed, you can make an appointment.

Burns, Acute and Chronic Skin Diseases, Infections, Herpes Virus


Another type of skin damage, allocated in a separate category, is a burn. We are talking not only about thermal burns, but also about sunburns, or those obtained in a solarium. You will also have to refrain from t until full treatment until full recovery.

Acute and chronic skin diseases

They are also a contraindication. When the aggravation passes, you can go to the salon. Treatment should be performed by a dermatologist.


A similar type of contraindication, caused by the activity of viruses, bacteria, or fungi.

Herpes virus

Its presence in the body can play a role. Any acute manifestations of the disease lead to damage to the epidermis. Bubbles and sores can then be removed mechanically, which creates a risk of complications.


for Sugaring/Waxing


Diabetics are advised to not use this procedure. This is due to the fact that sugaring paste contains glucose. In theory, it is possible to absorb the substance from the surface layers of the epidermis or mucous membrane, which is important when processing the bikini zone. Therefore, experts in this case recommend using other methods of hair removal.

Varicose disease in the third - fourth stage

Any type of depilation associated with the removal of hair by sticky formulations is prohibited for people suffering from varicose veins. The third and fourth stages are characterized by the presence of constant swelling in the legs and feet. You do not need to be a doctor to notice dilated veins and pigmentation. Contraindication is absolute (no exceptions).

Increased thrombosis

The thrombosis observed in the lower extremities will also be a strict contraindication. This is due to the fact that sticky compounds when removing hairs act in some way on blood vessels. The presence of blood clots in them may cause rupture.


The procedure is not recommended for epileptics, as it is associated with pain. It may provoke an attack in the patient.

Benign neoplasms

There are many places where you can do sugaring in St. Petersburg. However, it is important to choose trusted masters who know how to handle benign neoplasms. It is about the presence of moles, warts or papillomas. This restriction is not directly considered a prohibition, since the use of sugar or wax during operation is permissible. However, it is important to avoid areas where the neoplasms are located.

Possible malignant neoplasms

If we are talking about neoplasms, the origin of which has not been established, then the procedure is prohibited for use. In this case, it is important to consult an oncologist or dermatologist.

Jaylene was absolutely amazing! She was able to see me the same day and remove my old lashes and do a full set. She made them appear cat eye and they are just gorgeous! This spa also sells some amazing jewelry and skin care products. I’ve tried a few already and am in love. This is my new permanent salon for any brow, lash, or facial needs.

I am so happy with my results! Can’t wait to go back for my Powder Ombre and my Brazilian Bikini Sugaring! Update: The sugaring was a relatively painless experience… will definitely do again as I am thrilled with the results. My powder brows look amazing for day two and I have gotten tons of compliments already!

I'm a regular here now and I LOVE IT. I go for the sugar waxing and I stay for the good vibes. They go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and welcome. And they're efficient! One moment you're chatting about yard work and the next moment you're bald as a newborn baby. Environment is clean and calming. Definitely recommend!
