Threading is an ancient technique originating from the Middle East and South Asia, for eyebrow shaping and other areas of hair removal for peach fuzz free skin leading to finer, softer and smoother regrowth. It provides precise control for shaping perfect eyebrows and is gentle on skin, giving you a smooth finish for up to five weeks. This technique has proven great results, alternative to waxing and plucking. However, there are still many people that do not know about threading and how it can improve their beauty regime.
Benefits of threading
Unlike other hair removal methods, threading does not use chemicals and is safe, therefore it minimises the risks of irritation. If you are prone to skin sensitivity, itchiness or redness this technique of hair removal is beneficial for you. This method of removal is accurate, individual hairs can be targeted but multiple hair can be targeted removing one clean line of hair at once. As threading weakens the hair follicle it causes the growth to be less dense over time providing longer lasting results.
How is threading done?
Threading is done using a great technique of using a special 100% sterile thread, which is double-twisted and glided along the skin to gently remove unwanted hair from the root.
Is there anything I need to do before my threading treatment? Threading Pre-care?
We recommend that you exfoliate the area to be threaded at least three days before your treatment, this allows any growth which is still visible but beneath the skins surface to be threaded for a clean finish. To achieve the best results avoid plucking and waxing, this allows us to catch hair growth at all stages in one go until your next visit! Try to avoid make up on the area, this makes the threading process easier and more precise.
How long does threading last?
Threading can generally last up to 3-4 weeks, depending on your hair type and area of the face treated. Full hair growth can be from 2-5 weeks.
Is threading painful?
Threading is gentle on the skin, but our pain tolerance varies. Most of our clients tell us they feel a slight discomfort during the process, and some tell us there is no discomfort at all!
How old must I be to have this done?
From age of 11+ you can receive this service with consent of parent or guardian.
Can I thread more than just my eyebrows?
Threading can be done on any part of the face, from upper lip, chin and side of face.
I am using Retin A/Accutane, is threading suitable for me?
Threading is your best choice of hair removal as taking these medications can cause your skin to become thin and sensitive. Dermatologists also approve of threading, as this does not break your skin, nor pull it like waxing methods. Threading is a great method for all skin types and a safe process to carry out.
Are there any possibilities of cross contamination with threading?
With this method we use special 100% sterile thread, which is glided over the area. Once your session has ended the thread used is disposed of straight away, therefore you never have to worry about passing bacteria from one person to another.
What should I be doing after my treatment, are there any restrictions? /Threading aftercare
We recommend washing your face with cold water after your threading, this minimises post treatment redness and apply Aloe Vera gel to soothe the area treated. If you experience irritation or red bumps on your skin at times this is normal as it’s our body’s natural way of protecting us, rub some ice cubes on the area for a couple of minutes.
For at least 24 hours after your treatment, avoid perfumed products, direct sunlight/fake tan, chlorinated water, and steam as the area will be highly sensitive. Exposure mentioned can cause irritation, sunburn and inflammation.
