Although threading is a relatively new hair removal technique in the West, it has been used in Eastern countries for centuries by both men and women. There are many debates as to where threading originated, however it is generally accepted facial threading was being practiced in India and Central Asia over 6,000 years ago. It is primarily used for shaping and defining the eyebrows, but can also be used succesfully for removal of most facial hair. A long piece of 100% antibacterial cotton thread is twisted in a certain way and rolls along the skin to remove both thick and fine unwanted hairs.
It is considered to be gentler than waxing or tweezing, and is kinder to the skin because there are no chemicals or heat involved. Only the hair is pulled during threading, avoiding any trauma to the skin itself. This means it is suitable for those with sensitive skin and for users of Roaccutane (who cannot have waxing). It is a great hair removal alternative because it does not leave a sticky residue on the skin like waxing, and also encourages finer hair regrowth.
Because facial threading is gentler than other hair removal methods, it is suitable for those with sensitive skin and for users of Roaccutane (who cannot have waxing).
Whilst every care is taken, it is possible that if the skin is not pulled taut enough a slight skin graze can occur.
