Threading is a hair removal technique that originated in South Asia and the Middle East. It involves using a twisted cotton thread to trap and remove unwanted hair from the follicle, in the facial area.
During threading, a skilled technician holds one end of the thread in their mouth (this part never touches you) and the other end in their hands. They twist and maneuver the thread, creating a loop that captures and pulls out the hair at the root. The process is repeated until the desired area is hair-free.
Threading is commonly used to shape and remove hair from the eyebrows, upper lip, chin, and cheeks. However, it can also be used on other areas of the face with fine hair.
This is subjective. Threading is considered less painful than waxing for many people. Some individuals, however, prefer wax hair removal. You will experience mild discomfort or a slight stinging sensation during the process, but it is typically well-tolerated. The level of discomfort varies depending on an individual's pain tolerance and sensitivity.
Threading provides relatively long-lasting results. The hair usually takes several weeks to grow back, similar to other hair removal methods such as waxing. However, the rate of hair regrowth may vary depending on factors like hair type, genetics, and hormonal influences. On average, guests return every four weeks.
Yes! Threading is generally well-suited for individuals with sensitive skin. Unlike waxing or depilatory creams, threading does not involve the use of chemicals or sticky waxes that can exfoliate and potentially irritate sensitive skin. However, it's always a good idea to inform your technician about any skin sensitivities beforehand.
Threading can be performed even if you have acne or certain skin conditions. However, it's important to inform your technician about your specific skin concerns. They can take appropriate precautions and work around the affected areas if necessary.
