Known as an ancient Eastern beauty treatment, threading
has become a trendy phenomenon in the Western world. As a popular alternative to waxing, threading uses a cotton string,
or thread, to twist and remove hair from the root, resulting in smooth skin for up to sIx weeks or longer. This beauty treatment is quick and ideal for anyone with sensitive skin.
The process of threading is done by using a thin cotton thread that is doubled over, twisted then rolled over areas of unwanted hair, plucking the hair at the follicle level. Unlike tweezing, where single hairs are pulled out one at a time, threading can remove short lines of hair. Threading provides more precise control in shaping eyebrows and is gentler on the skin than waxing, which can cause uneven brow lines, extreme redness, skin irritations, and pain. In less than 10 minutes, your brows will be perfectly shaped without any redness.
Eyebrow Threading FAQ
What is eyebrow threading?
Eyebrow threading is an ancient form of hair removal, originating from the middle east. It is a 100% natural form of hair removal performed on the eyebrows and face.
How long does threading last?
Threading can last anywhere from 3-6 weeks depending on your personal hair growth. Since threading removes the hair from the root, it lasts longer than other forms of hair removal such as tweezing or shaving.
Can threading be performed on the whole face?
Yes, threading can be performed, and is the preferred method for hair removal on the face. It is a 100% natural, non-abrasive form of hair removal, so you’ll never have to worry about burning, pigmentation, or pulling on your skin!
Does threading have any side effects?
No, since eyebrow threading is 100% natural, there are little to no side effects. Those with ultra sensitive skin may experience redness. Those who are trying threading for the first time may experience minimal irritation. In this case, we recommend using a cold compress on the affected area, followed by a dab of hydrocortisone.
Why do people say that eyebrows are so important for beauty?
Eyebrows help frame the face, drawing attention not only to the eyes but to the bone structure as well. Eyebrows should be different sizes and shapes based on the shape and size of the persons face.
Why is threading more gentle on the skin than waxing?
Waxing removes one entire layer of skin WITH the hairs. Threading targets one hair at a time, leaving the surrounding skin untouched. Those using Retin-A, Acutane and other medications that make skin sensitive have no trouble with threading.
