Threading is a method of hair removal which originated in Asia. In more recent times this treatment has gained popularity with a cosmetic application in removing and shaping eyebrows. It can also be used to remove unwanted hair from the upper lip or chin area, you can even thread your entire face! Threading allows for a more precise and defined shape and can create better definition for eyebrows. Threading is not recommended for removing hair on arms or legs, as the hair in those regions is too much to remove and at the same time typically quite coarse.
HOW IT ALL WORKS
In threading, a thin cotton or polyester thread is doubled, then twisted. It is then rolled over areas of unwanted hair, plucking the hair at the follicle level. Unlike tweezing, where single hairs are pulled out one at a time, threading can remove short rows of hair. The reason for threading being preferred above waxing is because it provides more precise control in shaping eyebrows and is much gentler on the skin. This treatment can be painful as several hairs are removed at once, but this pain can be minimized if the treatment is done correctly.
