Summer is finally here, and that means it’s bathing suit season. Thinking about hair removal for your bikini line, underarms, legs, or anywhere else?
If you live in Abbotsford, you’re in luck: there are several hair removal providers who specialize in diverse types of hair removal. Here are a few different methods that are available to you:
A very popular hair removal method right now, sugaring is a clean and kind procedure that rids one of unwanted body hair in an eco-friendly way. The product itself is made from just three ingredients: water, lemon juice, and sugar.
Aside from environmentally responsible ingredients, there is also the added benefit of having no applicators or strips to worry about–this means minimal waste!
To prepare for sugaring, hair growth must be at least ¼ of an inch in length, and it’s recommended to repeat the process every 4-5 weeks. Cost is fairly low (typically $30 for bikini).

Waxing is fairly similar to sugaring in terms of method, pain, and how long the procedure takes and lasts for, but that’s where the similarities end.
It produces way more waste and pulls the hair in the opposite direction of growth. It also must be heated, which can result in wax burns. Cost is low-mediocre (about $30-$40 for bikini).
If you currently get waxed, we totally recommend you try sugaring—you won’t regret it.
Threading is very quick and precise, which is fabulous for efficiency and accuracy. It’s highly recommended for hair removal of the brows and other types of facial hair, but not for bikini, legs, or back.
It’s also possible to simply walk into a threading bar instead of making an appointment (which you typically have to do for other types of hair removal), which suits some people better.
Cost is minimal (typically $6-$8 for brows).
Laser hair removal is a completely different ball game. While the other methods listed above offer only temporary solutions, laser hair removal will help you achieve more permanent results. In fact, if administered properly, it can result in an 80% reduction in hair growth.
But here’s the catch: the procedure involves attending several lengthy appointments over the course of a set time, and it’s not cheap. Cost is high (approximately $250-$650 for legs per session; there are typically several sessions required).
So dare to be bare this summer, and get that unwanted hair removed, stat! To book a sugaring appointment in Abbotsford, visit our website. To find out more about hair removal for men, read our blog post on the topic.
