What is Threading?
What is “Threading?” Threading is an ancient method of hair removal dating back to over 6,000 years, originating in South Asia and the Middle East. It is a very delicate procedure, making it suitable for even the most sensitive skin. The art of threading can be seen through the gentle and precise twisting of a length of cotton thread along the undesirable area of hair growth. The twisting action of the thread itself is a technique that specializes in trapping the unwanted hair, and lifting it out of the follicle. Threading is far more effective and considerably less painful option than other methods such as tweezing or waxing. Hair removal by waxing and tweezing often results in irritated or damaged skin while threading provides minimal damage of both the hair follicle and skin. Hair re-growth with threading also becomes finer and more sparse through regular treatments. Unlike waxing, threading does not cause breakouts, redness, discoloration, or pigmentation. Threading’s precision allows for the most accurate fine lines, which is ideal for shaping eyebrows. This method of hair removal is highly recommended and an excellent option for those who use products such as Retin-A and Accutane for treating skin conditions. It is highly advised to schedule a threading treatment every 2-3 weeks for optimal results.
As popularity for threading arises in western society it has established itself as the ideal solution to a longstanding problem. Threading has also transcended all ages, genders, and ethnicities over the years. The procedure has expanded both nationally and culturally throughout the World and has proved to be the number one hair removal technique in today’s modern society.
