My Mission:

To exceed the expectations of traditional waxing salons by providing services built on personal relationships and performing stellar sugaring/waxing techniques in a sanitary and comfortable environment.

 I pride myself on being a knowledgeable service professional. And in being so, will do my best to make each appointment a memorable experience for every client.

A Little About Me:

Micky Richards, Licensed Esthetician and Owner/Operator

After receiving my BBA in Marketing and working a few years in the insurance industry, I decided to make a complete career change by enrolling in the esthetics program of the International School of Skin and Nails of Atlanta (2010-2011). Shortly after obtaining my esthetic license, I began working as a staff esthetician for 2 high volume waxing/sugaring salons; and in 2014, I established Sugar Lips Studio.

 

Throughout the years, I've received additional certifications in sugaring by Alexandria Professionals, eyebrow shaping through ACE Continuing Education and  BeautyBott Permanent Makeup.

BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT...

  • RELAX!  I am a  licensed skin care professional and I specialize in this type of hair removal.

  • Allow your hair to grow 1/8 (if sugaring) to 1/4 (if waxing) of an inch. The sugar/wax needs something to hold onto.

  • Gently exfoliate up until the day before your appointment.  This helps prepare the skin for hair removal. 

  • Shower the day of your appointment to help prevent infection.

  • Inform your esthetician of any changes to your skin care routine that may affect your service.

  • Do NOT apply any makeup, creams, oils, or lotions beforehand; you’ll get better results if your skin is clean and dry.

  • Some clients prefer to take an ibuprofen or use a numbing cream (Numb It by PFB) 30 minutes prior to their appointment.  It can help minimize pain felt during your service.

 

AFTER YOUR APPOINTMENT...

  • Once home, walk directly into your bathroom and THROW AWAY YOUR RAZOR!  You'll achieve better results if you avoid shaving between your appointments.

  • Schedule your next service 4-6 weeks out from today's service.  Routine sugaring/waxing helps the skin get accustomed to the procedure, minimizes irritation, and decreases hair re-growth.

  • Avoid the following activities to prevent additional irritation:

    • Using moisturizers, makeup, gels, deodorant and perfumes for at least 12 hours

    • Touching the serviced area with unclean hands for at least 12 hours

    • Exposing the serviced area to direct sunlight or tanning beds for at least 24-48 hours

    • Exercising for at least 12 hours

    • Using saunas, steam rooms, whirlpools and other heated sources for at least 48 hours

    • Wearing tight clothing for at least 24 hours

  • Begin an exfoliation routine 24 hours after your service.  I recommend an all-natural and coarse sugar scrub, like my Signature Pink Sugar Scrub; use in the shower 2-3 times per week.

  • For persistent issues with ingrown hair, I recommend using a serum like Vanish PFB with Chromabright.  Use daily to minimize the occurrence of ingrown hairs and to decrease discoloration caused by ingrown hair scars.

 

WHY SUGAR OR WAX IN THE FIRST PLACE?

Sugaring and Waxing is one of the best ways to temporarily remove unwanted hair.  It is more effective than shaving because it removes hair from the roots, not just from the skin’s surface.  Results are smoother and last longer than shaving. With regular maintenance, results can lead to permanency.

WHAT AREAS OF THE BODY CAN BE SUGARED OR WAXED?

Sugaring and waxing can be done on almost any part of the body.  The most popular areas for women are eyebrows, underarms, bikini/Brazilian, and legs; for men, chest and back are the most popular.  However, male grooming is becoming more prominent, and has increased the popularity of eyebrow waxing and ‘Man-zilians’.  The exception for men is facial and scalp hair.

HOW LONG SHOULD MY HAIR BE AFTER SHAVING BEFORE I COME IN FOR A SUGAR OR WAX SERVICE?

Your hair should be 1/4 inch long (about 2 weeks after shaving) for waxing and 1/8 of an inch long (about 1 week after shaving) for sugaring.

HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS LAST?

After a client’s first service, the results can last 3-4 weeks depending on the individual’s hair re-growth rate.  In most cases, hair growth is minimal during the first week or two and noticeably increases in the third and fourth week. With regular maintenance, results can last up to 6 weeks.

CAN I GO TANNING BEFORE OR AFTER MY APPOINTMENT?

It’s best not to be in the sun or use a tanning bed for 24-48 hours before AND after your service.  However, airbrush tanning is fine after waxing and sugaring.

WILL THE HAIR GROW BACK THICKER?

No.  Regular and continued waxing or sugaring usually results in sparser and finer hair re-growth.

CAN SOMEONE COME IN THE TREATMENT ROOM WITH ME?

To provide optimal services, only the client and esthetician are allowed in the treatment room during an appointment.  Except for clients under the age of 15, where we invite a parent or guardian to be on hand.

ARE THERE ANY HEALTH PRECAUTIONS TO KEEP IN MIND?

Avoid any waxing/sugaring while on Accutane and for a minimum of 6-12 months after coming off the medication or consult your dermatologist about when to proceed. 


Some physicians do not recommend waxing/sugaring for people suffering from diabetes or who have varicose veins or poor circulation, as they are more susceptible to infection. 


Facial waxing is not recommended for clients currently using Retin A, Renova, Differin or other types of skin thinning acne medications. Please read the label carefully and consult your dermatologist if you are taking any medication or using any topical cream that contains these medications or stop for 7 days prior to your appointment. 


Individuals do react differently to these medications and sometimes waxing or sugaring can be done if proper patch testing is completed.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE BIKINI, INBETWINI, AND BRAZILIAN SERVICES?

A Bikini is the most conservative of the 3 services.  It refers to hair removal from the visible bikini line, approximately 2-3 finger widths on either side of the crease between your bikini region and leg.  We also remove 1-2 finger widths of hair from the top of your bikini line. 


An Inbetwini is a “hybrid” between the bikini and Brazilian.  More hair, approximately 3-4 finger widths, is taken from the bikini line.  Hair is also removed from the inner buttocks. 


A Brazilian refers to hair removal from the entire pubic region, from front to back.  Most women prefer to take it all off, but you have the option to leave a patch of hair at the top of the pubic area.

CAN I GET A BRAZILIAN IF I'M ON MY PERIOD?

Yes of course; just know that you will be more sensitive, and you must wear a clean tampon.  Taking an ibuprofen 30 minutes before your appointment can help minimize pain.  

HOW LONG DOES THE BRAZILIAN SERVICE TAKE?

Your appointment will take approximately 20-30 minutes. Your first time will take the longest, but monthly upkeep is much faster.
