What is threading?
Threading is an ancient method of hair removal which originated in parts of India, the Middle and Far East, and is now gaining popularity in Western countries. This technique is now gaining popularity in the USA.
Process of Threading
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.
This technique is prefered because it does not require any chemical ingredients. Messy waxes and creams are avoided altogether. For women who would like to pursue a more natural beauty regimen, hair 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.
Benefits of Threading
The ouch(less) factor: Threading is found by many women to be much less painful than waxing. Since threading only targets the individual hairs, skin irritation is kept to a minimum. This is unlike waxing, which often causes unnecessary stretching and removal of the skin's delicate top layers.
An art of perfection: Threading is very precise and allows specialists to have greater control than waxing—resulting in a better defined arched shape for you!
Au naturale: Threading is 100% natural, there are no artificial waxes, chemicals, or invasive techniques used.
Take it all off: Even those short stubbly hairs can be removed—which gives you the option of avoiding that yucky growing-out period that everyone hates.
The taming of the flame: Minimal redness occurs after threading, and any redness that does appear usually subsides within an hour. With so little skin irritation, threading lets your beauty secrets stay secret!
Anti-acne: The majority of people that break out from waxing tend to not break out from threading. Also, threading is completely safe and dermatologist-recommended for individuals who are currently using medications like Accutane and Retin-A.
Wrinkle prevention—Warning: Waxing can tug, pull, stretch, and even remove the delicate skin on your face, eventually facilitating in the development of wrinkles.
