Threading

What is Threading?

Threading is a form of temporary hair removal, an ancient manual technique similar to plucking. It involves the use of a loop of twisted cotton thread which is passed across the skin to trap the hairs and so 'pluck' them from their follicles.

Where did  it originate?

Threading has been used for many centuries. Is origin is a little ambiguous but it is believed that it was first used in Arabia, Turkey and India.

What are the benefits of Threading?

Threading is a simple, cheap and an efficient way of removing unwanted hair with minimal pain and skin irritation.  The results are neat with approximate regrowth between 2-4 weeks. Very short hair can be removed and there is little irritation to the area making it possible to go over the area more than once. Hair can be removed individually or in 'lines' to create a perfect shape and can be removed from both above and below giving the threaded eyebrow its characteristic groomed appearance.  Threading is also good for individuals that have undergone strong acne treatments e.g. roaccutane , retin A.

 
What type of Thread is used for Threading ?

A 100% anti-bacterial cotton thread imported from India is used for Threading . This thread allows strength but resilience during the technique whilst reducing the risk of infection.

What areas can be 'Threaded'?

Threading is mainly performed on the face e.g. Eyebrows, upper lip, chin, sides of face, nose, ears, neck and forehead but can be used all over the body.
