What is threading?
Threading is a minimally invasive form of hair removal that can be used for eyebrow, eyelash, and facial hair. Eyebrow threading can replace waxing or plucking with tweezers for brow-shaping. Threading can also be used to remove peach fuzz above the upper lip. Threading has little to no side effects, and produces immediate results.
What cosmetic concerns does threading treat?
- Eyebrow & Eyelash Hair: Threading can be used to individually remove hair follicles to define, refine, and contour the eyebrows and eyelashes.
- Unwanted Hair: Excessive or unwanted hair of the facial hair area can be removed precisely with a threading procedure.
Who is the ideal candidate for threading?
The ideal candidate for threading is looking for a minimally invasive hair removal method for unwanted facial hair. Threading is not recommended for individuals with certain skin types that may cause sensitive skin, cold sore, sunburns, conjunctivitis, psoriasis, or other skin infections as threading may exacerbate these conditions.
What is the average recovery associated with threading?
There is little to no recovery following a threading procedure. Skin may be mildly red and sensitive following the treatment, but this usually resolves within a few hours.
What are the potential side effects of threading?
Side effects from threading are usually minimal, but may include temporary redness and sensitivity. These side effects typically resolve within a few hours of treatment.
What can someone expect from the results of threading?
The results of threading are immediately noticeable following the procedure. Maintenance threading treatments will most likely be required every three weeks, although this varies by individual.
What is the average cost of threading?
The average cost of threading is $5 to $85. The actual cost of the threading will vary by procedure, location, provider, and individual candidate needs.
What to Expect
Threading removes individuals hairs from the hair follicle and is typically only performed on the face. Here is a quick guide for what to expect before, during, and after threading.
- Hair must be at least 1mm in length
- Exfoliate the areas to be threaded
There are two different techniques for threading: the hand method and the mouth method which describe where the thread is stabilized. Both methods will be completed as follows:
- Skin is cleansed
- A thin thread which is doubled over, twisted, and rolled unwanted hair
- Hairs are removed one by one
Immediately After Treatment
- Redness for several hours
Threading is a minimally invasive, non surgical hair removal procedure. Threading involves quickly, precisely, and efficiently removing individual hair follicles on the face, including the eyebrows, eyelashes, and facial hair areas.
