Sugar Moon Salon's experienced aestheticians beautify bodyscapes with an array of services, including body-sugaring hair removal and Dermalogica facial therapies. An ancient Egyptian method of depilation, body sugaring applies a 100% biodegradable paste of sugar, lemon, and water by hand against the direction of hair growth, uprooting fuzz in a flicking motion similar to launching a fleet of a thousand paper ships. The paste adheres only to dead cells, making it safe for all skin types, and its naturally exfoliating action may help reduce instances of ingrown hairs. Slight irritation typically dissipates within 24 hours, and the Brazilian body sugaring comes with a soothing a Sweetspot wipette. Like an inchworm's boxer shorts, hair should ideally be 1/4-inch long, and clients should avoid exfoliation within 24 hours before and after treatment, as well as avoid creams, lotions, heat, and direct sunlight the day of treatment.
The one-hour Dermalogica CoreTreatment facial customizes a treatment for the face's 14 zones and two geographical poles, combating breakouts, oiliness, dryness, and aging. One of Sugar Moon Salon's epidermal experts performs a face mapping, then tailors a treatment regimen that may include double cleansing, exfoliation, extractions, mask, toner, moisturizer, solar defense, and a galvanic or high-frequency electrocurrent if needed, plus a hand, arm, and shoulder massage. The facial may be further enhanced with 15-minute touch therapies ($15 each), such as deep-tissue attention on the face and shoulders.
