Eyebrow threading is a depilation technique which originated in India. Threading is a hair removal technique that uses 100% cotton thread. The cotton thread is twisted and rolled along the surface of the skin entwining the hairs in the thread, which are then lifted quickly from the follicle. It is more precise than waxing and allows for better lines. Eyebrow threading can be used to eliminate a uni-brow, raise the arch of the eyebrow, or add shape and definition to the brow. Because it removes hair by the follicle, it is a reasonably long lasting hair removal technique as well. Repeat visits after three to four weeks are standard. The technique is also not terribly expensive because it is easy to do quickly and does not require costly chemical ingredients. For women who would like to pursue a more natural beauty regimen, eyebrow threading is a good choice, since it does not use harmful products. As opposed to waxing, the top layers of skin are not peeled or traumatized in the process making threading gentler on the skin. Threading is highly recommended and an excellent option for those who use Retin-A, Accutane, or similar products.
How does it work?
By knotting the thread and creating a trap, hairs are caught and forced out by the root. The rapid back and forth movement removes hair very efficiently. Depending upon the client’s needs, hair can be removed individually or a few at a time.
How long does it last?
Threading on the brows and lips lasts anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks. Facial hair on the sides lasts from 4 to 8 weeks.
Why Threading is better than Waxing?
Threading does not peel off the top layer of skin. Threading just grabs the hair and pulls it out without irritating the skin. Most people find it much less painful than waxing.
Hair does not grow back as fast. Because threading gets the finest hairs out it tends to last much longer. Therefore, after each sitting the regrowth of hair is slow and scant.
Skin does not get as red and irritated. Threading practically eliminates any redness or swelling of the skin.
It is anti-acne. Most people who break out from waxing do not experience this after threading. Threading is completely safe and even recommended by dermatologists.
Hair does not need to be long, but just above the skin. The hairs have to be only above the skin to get threaded.
Regrowth of hair is fine and smooth.
The perfect arch. Threading is very precise, the result is a perfect brow with a tailored arch.
Leaves skin smooth. The result of threading is a clean, silky no-mess look.
Threading is an art form creating clean lines with precision, while refining the appearance of the face. Threading is the answer for those who are looking for a natural, hygenic and relatively painless technique for removal of unwanted facial hairs.
