Frequently asked questions
Sugaring Wax for Body and Face Hair Removal
WHAT IS SUGARING WAX? IS IT SAFE? WHY SUGARING IS BETTER THAN WAXING?
Our Sugaring wax is a Paste, is now even more unique, ancient, 100% Natural product made of sugar, lemon juice and water (that’s it). It’s Natural and non-toxic that you can even eat it like a candy. The paste is applied at a lukewarm temperature, warmed by hand and feels like a skin treatment. Sugar wax/Paste is very easy to remove from the skin, has sweet smell, and leaves absolutely no marks as its completely removable with warm water.
DOES SUGARING HURT? IS IT AS BAD AS WAXING?
All clients report their sugaring experiences to be less painful than waxing. Also skin redness disappears much faster. Sometimes in 2-3 minutes. Also if you start doing sugaring regularly your hair will become smaller, thinner and eventually, will be almost not visible, much alike to baby’s hair.
HOW LONG MY HAIR HAS TO BE?
I recommend your hair to be from 1/8″ to 1/4″ long. Sesen Spa 100% Natural Sugaring can work with any hair length and will keep you informed about everything that’s going on during your appointment, however it is best to let your hair grow as long as possible before your first treatment to enjoy best results possible.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET SUGARED?
With our new sugaring wax, the intervals are getting longer and longer, however, we recommend to get sugared every 7 - 10 weeks to start with, especially if you have been shaving, depending on your hair growth and type also. The general rule is, the more you do it, the thinner and more invisible your hair becomes. Ask your Sugaring Practitioner how often you should get sugared, they should be able to know once 2nd or 3rd treatment has taken place, the intervals may and will vary from the start of your Sugaring sessions, as you carry on the intervals between treatments will prolong even further, as more hairs disappear with no return.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO BEFORE AND AFTER MY SUGARING APPOINTMENT?
WHY DO WE RECOMMEND A DIFFERENT INTERVAL FOR EVERY CLIENT? AND WHY THE INTERVAL LENGTH IS CRUCIAL FOR MAKING THE HAIR GO AWAY WITH NO RETURN?
Each person has a different growth cycle, different body chemistry, therefore different hair growth, and of course different hair type based on our genetics as well as many other factors. When you start your sugaring treatments at first and after shaving, or waxing, and breaking the hair off for some number of years, your body hair will get tough and get into a habit of escaping to grow under the skin, and since it is never getting the chance to grow above it, creating ingrowns and other problems, to protect itself from being chopped off again, likely not all the hairs will get into this habit, but enough of them will do so causing women enough problems, especially in the underarms and genitil areas. Your professional waxing/sugaring practitioner should be the one to guide you correctly with a healthy interval between treatments, that is based on your hair type, it´s growth rate, your wishes and budget. I would like to stress that this interval is crucial for executing great results including, hairless healthy glowing silky soft skin, no stubbles, no ingrown hairs, lighter and brighter colour skin, finer hairs, no hair breakage, and no irritations. Going by my thirty four plus years experience with sugaring, cooking and applying it, especially the last few!, I would urge, stress and encourage practitioners, and clients to keep an eye on their body hair growth amongst the sugared areas in order to be able to book the coming treatment with the correct interval length to each client.
At Sesen Spa our sugaring intervals are as such: At 4 and 5 weeks only at client's request, we now recommend 7 to 12 weeks, it differs on different body parts, when you first start your sugaring treatments for the first 3 treatments, then 10 to 12 weeks thereafter, we are currently finding, in the last quarter of your first year of sugaring treatment, without interference, your appointment will be between 7 to 12 weeks and you will start to enjoy the wonderful results of our work, before one year has passed.
Note this, if you choose to leave the hair longer than 12 weeks, here is what is likely to happen at a lot of waxing practices/ treatments; more painful session, longer hair means that, for curly hair people the hair will curl back in, the hair is more likely to be broken off during treatment, hence, why women get ingrowns from European wax sold internationally, with the waxing/sugaring application technique widely used being more or less all the same in western countries, a sugaring practitioner will excel in a sugaring practice once they have mastered their taught technique and adapt it with what they have learnt from practicing for many years making it their own, this usually happens after a practitioner have been certified, and after the start of their career. So choose your practitioner with care, there are some great waxing and sugaring specialists out there, but I believe that the sugaring industry is growing and we are in need of more good passionate sugaring practitioners to spread this awesome ancient method forever and ever, it is certainly in a class of its own amongst other hair removal methods. I personally beleive that sugaring is an Art.
Sesen-Spa is a traditional certified Egyptian sugaring practice, we are not a commercial practice by any mean. Here you should be able to see your own roots at each pull. I use various techniques to deal with different clients, as well as different area covered, based on your comfort and what I see fit, everything is explained to the client during their first sugaring session. Here we take our clients comfort seriously and we will go by your pace, different techniques are applied/used to minimise pain upon our client´s request too, however, this will prolong your session duration, first appointment is always booked at double it´s possible time, as we have no idea what it is until your first appointment has taken place. Please discuss any worries you may have with us if you are a first timer with sugaring, we are happy to answer all your questions.
WHAT IS DIFFERENT ABOUT OUR NEW SUGARING PASTE?
I have cooked and used sugaring most of my life, I never liked how hard it used to get, and how much hand work it took to knead by hand, some add water, wet their fingures whilst kneading it, however, for me this could cause the paste to go too soft too soon, if it is made too soft, i.e: made to suit cold climate, so you are able to easily spread it, it will simply keep on getting softer as more body hairs get into it, also to spread on the client it is tough unless you heat it, especially in western practices. This is why it is mostly heated, then handled with the finguers to cool it down maintaning it´s shape before it gets spread on the area treated as it cools further on your skin whilst the spreading is happening, this makes it easier and ready to pull away from the skin taking the hair with it.
WHAT ARE THE BENIFITS OF SUGARING AT SESEN-SPA?

Chakra Re balancing Therapy.
WHAT IS A CHAKRA?
The Sanskrit word Chakra translates to wheel or disk. In meditation, Ayurveda, and Yoga, this term refers to wheels of energy throughout the body. There are seven main chakras, which align the spine, starting from the spine base through to the crown of the head. To understand or visualize a chakra in the body, imagine a swirling wheel of energy where matter and consciousness meet. This invisible energy, called Prana, is vital life force, which keeps us vibrant, alive, and healthful.
WHY/HOW IMPORTANT OUR CHAKRAS ARE TO OUR BODIES?
WHAT ARE THE CHAKRAS OF MATTER?
The first three chakras, starting at the base of the spine are chakras of matter. They are more physical in nature.
WHAT IS THE FORTH CHAKRA RESPONSIBLE FOR?
WHAT ARE THE CHAKRAS OF SPIRIT?
WHAT ARE THE CLUES THAT OUR CHAKRAS ARE IN NEED OF ALIIGNING?
Our bodies are in constant flux between balance and imbalance. Unless you have an apparent problem in one area of the body, imbalances can be difficult to detect. That being said, it’s good to bring awareness to your body/mind and start to learn its signals and clues.
HOW CAN I BENIFIT FROM A CHAKRA BALANCING/RE BALANCING THERAPY?
Facials & Body Treatments
Body Wraps & Weight Loss
HOW DOES IT WORK?
To put it simply, this is a long process where your desired body parts are wrapped in a very thin plastic wraping material, Cling Film/Saran wrap, cotton sheets, hot blankets and more. We will have given you instructions on how to prepare your body, and what to bring with you prior to your appointment. During the above process your body is forced to lose some of it´s access weight, you will lose more, especially if your body tends to retain water, you will sweat more as your environment gets warmer and warmer. You are observed at all times, your sweat is dried, water or juice are given upon your request, we will not let you go to sleep, as many find it relaxing to start with, however we will talk to you if we notice you are dosing off as we need to know that you are OK and coping well with everything that is going on. You may chose to have the body wrap alone, or combined with the full package, containing 6 litres of 100% Natural Green drink, and 1.25 Litres of our Red drink 2 weeks worth of detox supply. After the wrap has taken place, we will ask you to keep us updated on your progress, or in the unlikely event of feeling unwell, however this has not happened yet. We need to remain updated however so are able to increase or decrease dosage of what you are taking based on what you will report to us, at least for the following two weeks after your wrap. We ask you not to weigh yourself everyday, but yes everyweek, we ask this of you so your mind does not panic if you are not losing as much as you thought you would, we only do not wish for anxiety to get in the middle of you and your weight loss success journey. we will also provide you with instructions prior to laying down.
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT LAST?
Well, this will totally depend on you, you will tell us when you want to stop. 90 minutes is what we recommend to remain under, again it will hinge on the amount you wish to lose, the greater it is, the more I have seen do longer and pushed themselves, but only because they could. Everyone is different. The rubbing and wraping will take anything from 40 to 90 minutes again it will depend on many factors. We will need 30 minutes to unwrap and another 20 for you to cool down and to adjust.
WILL I LOSE WEIGHT?, HOW FAST, HOW MUCH WILL I LOSE?
Yes, you will sure lose weight, some lose weight immidiatly after, some don´t, don´t panic, again everyone is different, regardless to whether you sweat lots or not, you still might not show this on the scale after, just remain positive, stick to your routine and in two days go on on the scales, or try an old pair of jeans that used to be too tight to see. I HAVE NOT HAD ANYONE WHO DID NOT LOSE WEIGHT. Having said all the above, it will all depend on what you do after your wrap, if you eat a big mac, your body will go potty and put on 4 to 5 pounds at once. We ask you and recommend that if you are truly serious about losing weight, then you have to be strict with yourself in order to acheive the goals you have already invested. PLEASE EAT CLEAN & KEEP ALCOHOL AT BAY. Remember mericales happen via a lot of hard work, dicipline, and committment.
