Threading is a form of temporary hair removal, an ancient manual technique similar to plucking and is a fast and effective way to remove unwanted hair.
It is suitable for removal of unwanted hair from:
- Upper lip
- Fingers and toes
Threading involves the use of a loop of twisted cotton thread which is passed across the skin’s surface, trapping the hairs and removing them from their follicles. Threading has been used for many centuries. It is believed that it was first used in Arabia, Turkey and India.
It removes many hairs at once, so it is a fast method of removing unwanted hair, with minimal pain and skin irritation. The results are neat with approximate re-growth 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.
Hairs can be removed individually or in ‘lines’ to create a perfect shape when threading eyebrows. Hair can be removed from both above and below the eyebrows, giving them a well- groomed appearance.
Short hairs can be removed, but they need to be long enough to be removed by the thread. Avoid heavy use of moisturisers prior to treatment
Treat the area with respect and avoid sun exposure, heat treatments and makeup. We recommend Sterex aloe gel if the area needs soothing or calming following threading.
