More details about Threading
What is threading?
Threading is an ancient hair removal technique originating from Central Asia and India. Using a thin cotton thread twisted into a loop, skilled aestheticians roll the thread 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 lines of hair, ensuring precise and even hair removal.
How long does threading last?
The longevity of threading results can vary based on individual hair growth cycles, but typically, the smooth, hair-free results from threading last anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks. Regular threading sessions can potentially lead to finer and less dense hair regrowth over time.
Is threading painful?
The sensation of threading is often described as a series of rapid, pinching feelings. While it’s not entirely pain-free, many find it less painful than waxing. The level of discomfort can vary depending on one’s pain threshold and the area being threaded, but the process is relatively quick, and the results are worth it.
What areas of the face can be threaded?
Threading is exceptionally versatile. While eyebrows are the most popular area for threading, other facial areas include the upper lip, chin, sides of the face, forehead, and neck. Its precision makes it especially suitable for small areas in need of detailed shaping.
Is threading suitable for all skin types?
Yes, threading is suitable for all skin types. It’s especially recommended for those with sensitive skin, as it doesn’t involve any chemicals or heat. Since threading only targets the hair and not the skin, there’s minimal risk of irritation, making it a gentler option compared to other hair removal methods.
How is threading different from waxing or tweezing?
Threading is a more precise method of hair removal compared to waxing and can achieve sharper shapes, especially for eyebrows. Unlike waxing, threading doesn’t remove a layer of skin, leading to less irritation. Compared to tweezing, threading can remove lines of hair at once, which is faster and ensures even results. Plus, threading doesn’t require any chemicals, making it a natural choice.
What should I do to prepare for a threading appointment?
Preparation is straightforward. Ensure the hair you want to be threaded is at least 1/16th of an inch long, which typically means refraining from tweezing or waxing the area for about two weeks prior. Cleanse your skin to remove any makeup or creams, and avoid applying any strong topical products on the area to be threaded a day before the appointment.
Will my hair grow back thicker after threading?
No, threading won’t cause hair to grow back thicker or coarser. In fact, consistent threading sessions might lead to the hair growing back finer and sparser over time. This is because the process can cause minor damage to the hair follicle, leading to less dense regrowth.
