Threading is an ancient hair removal method originating from Eastern countries such as Egypt and India, which is becoming increasingly popular here in the West. Threading removes the entire hair follicle, with greater speed and accuracy than tweezing.
The technique is performed by twisting a piece of cotton thread and using it as a ‘mini lasso’ to gently pull out unwanted hairs. When it comes to keeping necessary thread tension, our aestheticians each employ their own, unique technique, with some preferring to hold the loose thread in their teeth, and others in between their fingers. Whichever technique is adopted, threading is totally hygienic, with nothing but a sanitised length of thread coming in to contact with the skin during treatment.
Threading is most suitable for removing fine and ‘downy’ hair as is often on the face, including the lip, chin and cheeks. The technique is also extremely effective for shaping both ladies and gents eyebrows.
As with any epilation technique, the hair is pulled from the skin, with some clients experiencing more discomfort than others. The benefit of threading is undoubtedly the speed of the treatment, meaning any mild discomfort is incredibly short-lived. Many clients will experience a mild reddening of the skin after treatment, but this usually subsides within a few minutes.
