Threading: Professional and Affordable Hair Removal
Threading is a natural approach in removing unwanted facial hair. A thread is systematically twisted and pulled along the surface of the skin with the unwanted hair.
As the thread rolls along, each hair follicle is lifted up and out from the root in that area, leaving smoother and softer skin behind. It’s fast, precise, and relatively painless as opposed to waxing or tweezing.
How is threading better than waxing or tweezing?
Threading normally lasts twice as long as waxing, and you avoid all chemicals. Threading is also fundamentally different from tweezing or plucking. In tweezing, the hair is pulled from the top leaving the possibility of breaking the hair mid-way resulting in ingrown hair. Threading on the other hand, allows for a far more cleaner and long-term approach since the hair is pulled straight from the root. This allows us to even remove ingrown hairs in most cases while preventing them to happen in the first place.
Is it painful?
Threading is relatively painless compared to waxing or tweezing. The first time you get it done, you do feel a slight tingling sensation but that’s only because all the rough hair is being removed from its natural or previously waxed/tweezed state. The hair that grows in after the threading is usually softer and the skin around it is smoother making your next visit a delight.
How long does it take?
Threading time varies from customer to customer and depends on the existing growth and type of arch needed. As a general rule of thumb, it takes almost the same amount of time as waxing.
How long will the results last?
Individual hair re-growth rates vary from person to person, but because threading removes each hair from the root, results usually last longer than waxing. Most clients, on average, prefer to come in every 2-3 weeks for a well-maintained and groomed look.
I observed that part of the thread is held in the mouth of the stylists, is this sanitary?
Yes-it is definitely sanitary. The part of the thread that is in stylist’s mouth is never used on anyone’s skin and it never makes contact with the face. It is only meant to keep the thread tightly stretched out for better precision and accuracy in shaping. After each threading session, that part of the thread goes straight to disposal and a new thread is used for the next client.
Is threading for eyebrows only?
Threading allows for hair removal on any part of the face in an effective and precise manner. Whether you have a “peach-fuzz” growth on your upper lip, ingrown stubble near your chin, or even just a few sprouting hairs in and around your neck, the specialists can do it all. We do offer Full Face specials where you pay less than the sum of each individual part. Full Face threading includes Forehead, Eyebrows, Lip area, Chin, Sides, and Cheeks. If you don’t want them to touch any specific area, they will be more than glad to keep your request in mind.
My skin is very sensitive, will I get red from threading?
If you have sensitive skin, you may experience some redness but it usually subsides within 5-10 minutues. If you feel you have extremely sensitive skin, redness may last for an hour, which is still considerable less than waxing which may bring on redness for days at a time. Regardless of your sensitivity, please rest assured our stylists will apply a natural Aloe Vera gel used to cool the area, close the pores, and to reduce any irritation or redness. Customers can feel free to apply topical creams like hydrocortisone.
