What is Eyebrow Threading – Mystery Solved
hey told me that Threading wasn’t painful — NONSENSE!!
I had heard about threading to remove hair, but truly didn’t understand the process until I ventured out and gave it a try.
The process was very painful. This may have been due to the fact that my brows looked like two giant caterpillars. No kidding!
I was so tense during the hair removal that I am certain my fingernails are still in the arms of that chair!
What is Threading you ask?
It involves an ancient hair removal technique originating in China that spread to India. Basically, a technician utilizes 100% cotton thread to remove the hair directly from the root. She uses a quick motion of twisting and pulling the thread to remove all of the unwanted hair.
The process is safe, chemical free, and can be done on any part of the face.
Since I use Retin A on my skin, this type of hair removal offers up a safe alternative to traditional waxing. As a Retin user, warm wax product poses an issue of removing a layer of fresh soft skin resulting in scabbing, bleeding and changes in pigmentation.
Beauty is painful.
The technician will have you hold the skin taut and this does help to alleviate some pain from the process. However, the pain experienced becomes less noticeable with each treatment thereafter.
Would I do it again? You bet I would!
Here are the advantages of Threading:
- The service offers a safe chemical free hair removal.
- The process doesn’t break down the skins collagen…leading to more wrinkles.
- The redness quickly fades compared to waxing.
- Threading removes the hair from the follicle, which results in not needing it done for three to six weeks. If you compare that to the usual every two weeks waxing regime, you save time and money.
