Raquel Souza is an Atlanta Institute of Aesthetics graduate and owner of Sweet Peach Wax & Sugaring Studio located in Virginia Highlands. She opened the doors to her attractive, modern and cozy studio in August 2012. Sweet Peach Studio is the first sugaring studio in Atlanta. Way to go Raquel!
Sugaring is an ancient middle-eastern practice and alternative to traditional wax hair removal. The treatment is 100% natural and gentler on the skin than wax.The sugaring paste is a combination of sugar, lemon juice and water. The sugar adheres to and extracts only the hair follicle , not the skin. See for yourself in the following video from Real Women/Real Sexy with Angel Maynard.
Sweet Peach also offers additional skin care treatments including body scrubs, facials, spray tanning, waxing and Brazilian Secret Service treatments. Her products are 100% natural with no chemicals or additives. Another plus, the services are reasonably priced. Facials include a deep pore cleansing, toning, skin analysis, exfoliation, facial mask AND massage to the neck, face and hands. All for $45!

Traci Daly, Atlanta Institute of Aesthetics Program Director, visited the studio recently. Here is what she had to say…
“Raquel Souza and her staff Alexis Wilson and Aaliyah Womack all AIA graduates provide a warm and relaxed environment for their clientele. The decor of Sweet Peach is like a breath of fresh air with a dollop of sunshine. The establishment is clean and organized and the exceptional therapists make you feel catered to from the time you meet them. The location is perfect with several local establishments to tour before or after your services. I loved it, and will be returning very soon. ”
