Threading is an ancient method of hair removal originating in Asia, and now it has become popular in the west amongst women and men alike. Threading delivers pint point accuracy with lasting results.
It is gentle to enough to remove facial hair and strong enough to remove tough hair on legs and hands. What makes threading so unique is that it restrains hair from growing back fast. It also reduces hair thickness and density so that it grows back fine and light. No other hair removal treatment can achieve this. What’s more, threading doesn’t pull the skin, preventing it from looking saggy and therefore keeping wrinkles at bay.
The benefit of threading that most sets it apart from other hair removal techniques is its precision. While waxing and plucking can often leave unwanted stray hairs around your eyebrows, a threading artist goes through your hair row by row, giving eyebrows a clean and defined shape. Threading only removes hair, not skin, and because it is so exact, it can remove hairs that are finer than those that can be removed by waxing or plucking.
Threading is also very fast -- sessions will only take about 15 minutes of your time, and sometimes even less. It's also relatively inexpensive. Different practitioners have varying rates, but threading generally costs about the same as plucking and waxing.
Threading is suitable for removing fine as well as coarse, long as well as very short hair, which definitely gives it an edge over many methods of hair removal.
Unlike tweezing, threading removes one clean line of hair all at once, making it much quicker and easier to shape the brows.
Irritation, skin rashes or excessive redness are avoided with threading, however the skin may get slightly reddish for a few minutes.
Threading lifts the hair from the follicle, therefore if it is done on a regular basis, it weakens the hair follicle so hair growth becomes less dense over time, and new hair will grow finer and sparser
