Ancient Hair Removal Process - 21st Century Style!

The hair removal industry has been booming over the last decade - clients are spending more and more money on removing unwanted hair - in fact, according to Lucy Peters, hair removal is the 4th most popular minimally-invasive procedure performed!

We have heard from many clients recently about sugaring - the age-old hair removal process that dates back to the times of Cleopatra or before. Many of our clients are interested, some swear by it, and it has piqued our interest too!

This ancient sugar hair removal technique has been used for centuries in the Orient to remove body hair. Made of all-natural products without preservatives or additives gives this formulation the advantage of being water soluble and suitable for all hair removal areas, including facial hair.

Body sugaring is a natural exfoliant that removes dead cells and is worked in the same direction as natural hair growth. This results in a significant reduction of ingrown hairs right from first application until their complete elimination. This is a technique that is different than waxing; it doesn’t require cotton strips and a small amount of sugar can cover a large body area. This hair removal technique is perfect to prevent the risks of cross-contamination, in part because there is no repetitive dipping into the container during the same treatment. The use of gloves is recommended and easy to use making it a pleasant and hygienic service.

Epillyss, the world-renowned wax manufacturer, has now released a line of Sugar Paste to their product lineup! A gentle treatment with a water soluble product, all formulations offered are made of sugar, lemon juice and water, and do not contain chemical additives.


The Épillyss sugar is applied at body temperature; it only adheres to the hair and not to the skin and ensures a comfortable application and gentle removal. We must spread the paste on the area of hair removal in a back and forth movement and remove with a dry and quick flick of the hand to remove the hair follicle.  You must choose the formulation that will suit you; your choice will be done largely depending on the temperature of your hand. Indeed, as the application is done with the fingertips, this will have a great influence on the texture of the sugar paste during application. A cold hand will require a more flexible paste, hot hands will require a harder paste.

DETAILS:
  • Available in Soft, Supple, or Regular formulations
  • 35 oz. microwavable container
  • Excellent for sensitive skin and all hair types (ideally 1/8" - 1/4" hair length)
  • 100% natural - no additives, colors, preservatives, or fragrance
  • Water soluble - easy cleanup
  • Extremely gentle to skin - applies at room temperature

100% NATURAL INGREDIENTS:
Sugar, lemon juice, and water

AVAILABLE FORMULAS (in order of hardness):

Waxing with Sugar?

Allow me to introduce Sugar Pro Professional Nourishing Hair Removal from the Makers of Moom. Although it needs no introduction as it was flying off the warehouse shelves last week. I doubt much waxing is going on in the NY area as it is freezing cold. I envy the warmer parts of the country where waxing is still popular this time of year... why? I have no idea... I'm just a shipping guy! See our great Sugar Pro Hair Removal selection HERE!

Increase Profits With An IPL Laser

I just read an article in Skin Inc, cleverly titled "Did You Know Cosmetic Lasers Can Double Your Income?" - kudos to the author for making it impossible for me to not read it!

If you aren't familiar with IPL lasers (intense pulse light), they are a great device for treating spider veins, age spots and even hair removal. The IPL laser sends high intensity light to penetrate the skin's surface, resulting in damage to the melanin that makes up age spots. The skin then repairs the damage, increasing collagen production which results in younger, plumper looking skin to make your facials really stand out!

Since this is a specialized service that is most effective when done in multiple sessions, you are able to price these facials up to double what your regular ones are, without adding extra time or materials!

As the article explains, IPL is like an amped up facial, it has the benefits of a regular facial but allows the technician to address deeper issues under the skin - resulting in healthier skin and happier clients!

Take a few minutes to check out the article, maybe it's time to bring in a fresh new treatment option for the summer!

Don't forget, Pure Spa now offers financing with instant approval on equipment and furniture!

Happy Waxing!

We just added a fun new wax warmer to the site. Now, I'm sure you're thinking I'm crazy for being excited about a wax warmer....but I am!

Waxing can be a stressful situation for some people. Whether they have had a previous bad experience at a different business or like anyone else, Brazilians don't make them smile. Well, Cirepil has a wax warmer that will make them smile. The Happy Heater holds 14oz tins and it's smiling face will garner a second glance from your clients. Whether they mention it or not, I'm sure they will notice!

Even if you keep this in the room as your back up since it's super cost effective, anything you can do to help ease client stress is well worth it. I know I smile every time I look at this warmer!

P.S. Prefer wax beads? No tin is included with the heater but empty tins are available if you use waxing beads.

Be Pleasantly Surprised by Epillyss Sensitive Skin Wax

After seeing an unusual snow storm in October, and millions of people in the Northeast out of power for nearly a week after, I didn't think that anything could surprise me anymore. Boy was I mistaken!

On a whim, after an awesome conversation with a client the other day, I bought a can of Epillyss Sensitive Skin Wax to try. I wax because it is convenient to not have to touch a razor for a couple of weeks, but waxes don't usually blow me away. I'm of the "waxing is a form of inhumane torture" mindset, but the Epillyss Sensitive Skin wax is AHHHH-MAZING!

Formulated with natural pine resin, beeswax, and accented with Marine Collagen and Citronella, this milky, butterscotch-colored wax leaves the skin silky smooth and hair free - with little to no discomfort! Your clients will ADORE your waxing services performed with this wax! Perfect for all skin and hair types, but specially formulated to be gentle on the most sensitive skin, this wax should be a staple for any waxer!
