What is threading
Threading uses knotted thread to swiftly grab and pull hair by the root from the eyebrows, upper lip, chin and sideburns. Unlike waxing, threading can isolate and extract individual hairs.
What does threading feel like?
You may feel a pinching or light scraping sensation. Most customers agree that it’s no more uncomfortable than tweezing or waxing.
How long does threading take?
The upper lip takes just a few minutes, and a simple eyebrow threading takes 5-10 minutes. A full-face threading session lasts for 20-30 minutes.
What areas of the body can be threaded?
All areas of the face—eyebrows, lip, chin, sideburns—can be threaded, as well as the back of the hands, fingers, top of the feet and toes.
What are the benefits of threading vs. waxing
Threading is more precise because individual hairs, even fine hair, can be targeted and removed. Threading can be done as soon as hair grows just above the skin, whereas waxing requires the hair be at least 1/4” long. Unlike waxing, threading doesn’t pull at the skin during the hair removal process which can cause irritation.
How long does threading last?
Depending on your hair type and area of the face that was threaded, full regrowth can be anywhere from two to eight weeks.
If I get my full face threaded, will the hair grow back thicker?
No. After repeated threading, the hair actually tends to weaken and grow back finer.
Why does the aesthetician put part of the thread in her mouth?
The thread must be pulled taut in order to accurately and precisely remove each hair, however, the thread that touches the aesthetician’s mouth never touches your face. Each piece of thread comes from a clean spool and aestheticians use several fresh pieces during the session.
Is it okay to get threaded if you have sensitive skin?
Yes. Depending on your sensitivity level, you may experience redness or minor bumps at the site that should subside in 10-15 minutes. In rare cases, the area may remain red for an hour or two. We recommend declining the lotion or aloe gel aestheticians usually apply after a session and refrain from using other facial products until the area feels less sensitive.
Can I specify how I want my brows to look?
Yes! Before you begin, let your aesthetician know how you want your brows shaped and how thick or thin you’d like them. Before leaving the chair, check your brows to be sure you’re happy with the results. You aesthetician will be happy to make any adjustments you’d like.
. My brows don’t have a natural arch, is it possible to get them shaped that way?
Absolutely, but we’ll need to create a thinner brow to achieve the arch. If you want thicker eyebrows shaped to your natural contours, we don’t recommend the arched look.
. I over tweezed. How long should I wait before my next threading appointment?
Although hair can be threaded as soon as it grows just above the surface of the skin, we recommend waiting for about two weeks if you want a new or different shape to your brows. In the meantime, don’t tweeze your brows, even for a touch up.
Is it safe to get threaded after cosmetic surgery?
Check with your doctor to inquire how long you should wait to resume threading.
