This is an ancient method of hair removal which originated in the Indian sub-continent. Threading is performed by using a piece of pure, twisted cotton thread which is rolled over the hair that is to be removed. It plucks the hair at the follicle level but unlike tweezing it pulls out an entire row of hairs at a time. This results in a straighter, cleaner line and a great shape which is completely smooth.

Threading is used for all areas of the face; such as eyebrows, upper lip, chin and sides of the face, as an alternative to waxing. The benefits of threading are the immediate results which leave the skin hair free. However unlike waxing, the treatment does not peel or traumatise the top layers of skin.

Threading, like all hair removal treatments which remove the whole hair from the follicle will last roughly 3-4 weeks, depending on your hair growth cycle. Like other methods of hair removal, threading can result in redness or soreness, but but is preferable to waxing for those who suffer with skin conditions or skin sensitivity. To help avoid irritation post treatment, it is advisable to not wear any make-up before threading.
