Threading is a hair removal technique that has been practiced for centuries. Facial hair is removed swiftly yet meticulously from the most delicate areas of the face by knotting off thread and creating a trap that forces out hair by the root. It is the best alternative to waxing and tweezing, especially for sensitive skin. Unlike waxing, threading does not remove a layer of skin, which can leave the skin on your face susceptible to sun damage. By far the least invasive method of facial hair removal, threading can target individual hairs to get the precise shape and smooth finish you want.
Threading is comparable to tweezing or waxing. You may feel a pinching or light scraping sensation, but most customers agree that threading is no more uncomfortable than other hair removal methods.
A simple eyebrow threading can take just 5-10 minutes. The upper lip takes about 5 minutes; a full face thread takes about 20-30 minutes.
It is design for sensitive skin. Most commonly it is used for facial hair removal like Eyebrows, Sideburns, Lip, chin, Full face. People having skin issues like Eczema, Rosacea or using Retin-A, Accutane (which is blood thinner). They do arm, leg or underarm threading where they cannot do waxing.

Slightly. However, depending on your sensitivity level, you may experience redness or minor bumps at site, but it should subside in 10-15 minutes. In rare cases, the area may remain red for an hour or two. We recommend them using ice for couple of min and use aloe after that. Refrain from using makeup products for a few hours until the area is less sensitive. If you develop a rash that does not subside, call your dermatologist.
Yes! Before you begin, let your threader know how you want your brows shaped and how thick or thin you’d like them.
Although hair can be removed once it’s grown above the surface of the skin, we recommend waiting for about three to four weeks to give your eyebrows a chance to grow back in so your threader can give you the shape you want. You can come in anytime for a “clean up.”
