Romero “Jacare” Cavalcanti Seminar

What an amazing weekend. It was an honour and a privilege to have this group at the club this weekend. There isn’t a man in this picture that I don’t have great respect for. The seminar was huge success. Thanks to everyone that was able to make it out. It’s amazing to be part of such an amazing team of great people. If you were on the mats this weekend I truly consider you my friend.
Congratulations to Dragan Konjevic and Jeff Joslin on receiving your third degree, so many people look up to, and to see you progress even further is truly inspirational. The loyalty and mutual respect I see between you and Master Jacare is really special and something you don’t see every day.

Congratulations to Ryan Michalowsky that purple belt definitely deserves to be around your waist. Stephen Robert, Brendan Lalonde, Zach Junkin and Mike, great job on earning your blue belts. I know that this is the first promotion of many for all of you.

See everyone on the mats!

-Bryan Pilon

Advantages of Sugaring vs. Waxing

Waxing is a popular & easily accessible method for body hair removal……but how does it compare to Sugaring?
Sugaring paste is simply made out of sugar, water, & lemon juice. It’s even edible!
Wax has many chemical ingredients, mostly resins & preservatives.

Sugaring paste is applied at body temperature & will not burn your skin.
Hot wax must be heated to a high degree in order to become liquified. The heat causes swelling in the tissues which makes hair difficult to remove. Using this amount of heat has the potential to cause burning & scarring.

Sugar paste can be cleaned up easily with water. You will never leave a Sugaring treatment feeling sticky.
Since wax contains resins, chemical solvents are required to remove it’s residues.

Sugar cannot adhere to live skin cells. Live skin cells are wet & because Sugar Paste is water soluble, it will not adhere to live skin cells. This means less discomfort for you & less trauma to your skin. Sugaring does remove dead skin cells – so as the hair is removed your skin is also getting exfoliated! It is gentle enough to go over the same area several times to extract stubborn hairs without causing skin damage or irritation. No tweezers needed.
Wax has been known to remove more than just the hair, since it can adhere directly to live skin cells, which makes waxing more painful & irritating. Wax cannot be applied to an area more than twice at the most. Tweezers are commonly used to get the leftover hairs the wax missed.

A single glob of Sugar Paste can be used over & over on different parts of your body then discarded after your treatment. It is never used on any other person.
When using a hot wax pot, the practitioner must use a clean & unused stick each time to dip into the wax for each strip applied. This creates more waste and more chance for contamination.

Sugaring Paste is hypoallergenic & non-comedogenic. Sugar naturally helps control cross contamination & bacteria cannot breed in the tub of sugar.
Cross contamination in a waxing room is always a danger, especially since bacteria will breed inside a tub of wax.

Using the Advanced Sugaring Technique the paste wraps around the hair making it pliable, while seeping into the hair follicle lubricating the hair to make the extraction more complete & gentle. The hair is removed out of the follicle only in the natural direction of growth, which helps to extract the hair intact.
One of the most common problems waxers face is early regrowth due to broken hairs. Waxing can leave 15% – 30% breakage behind. This problem is usually caused not by the esthetitian, but by the wax used. Since wax hardens on the hair, it has the tendency to break it off at the surface, rather than pull it out.

The Advanced Sugaring Technique requires less than 1/16 inch of hair (or 4 – 7 days growth after shaving) for successful extraction.
Wax products require that you grow the hair out at least 1/4 inch before your next waxing. (or 2 – 3 weeks growth after shaving).

After a number of Sugaring treatments the hair follicle begins to deplete. The hair grows in more refined each time. Because Sugar can extract such short hair, it is possible to extract the hair in the early growth phase, which can lead to permanency. You will see superior results in just a few treatments.
