Tweezers, step aside! Threading, a hair removal procedure, has grown popular in North American spas in recent years. Continue reading to learn more about threading and whether it's good for you.
What exactly is threading?
Threading is a hair removal technique that has its origins in India, Iran, and Central Asia. Threading practitioners remove many hairs at a time with a twisted cotton thread. It is mostly used to remove hair from the eyebrows, upper lip, chin, and cheeks. Though threading is effective on bigger regions, it isn't a popular hair removal method for the arms, legs, and bikini line since it takes too long. Threading, on the other hand, can be used to tidy up a tiny portion of the bikini line.
Threading takes a lot more skill than tweezing or waxing, so it's not something you can do at home. Threading is usually done at a spa or salon by a qualified esthetician who has been trained in this technique.
When threading isn't a good idea
Threading is a low-risk beauty procedure, but it isn't appropriate in all circumstances. If you have acne, you should avoid threading that region since it may cause more harm. Folliculitis—inflammation of the hair follicles—is also a possibility, but not as much as with other hair removal methods including shaving, waxing, and tweezing.
We advise you to try threading if it appeals to you because there are little hazards. This old beauty tip has various modern-day benefits, as you'll see next.
Threading has the following advantages:
Eyebrow threading produces more exact outcomes than brow waxing.
Quick visits - Most brow treatments are completed in 15 minutes or less.
No ingrown hairs — It's not only kinder than waxing, but it also prevents ingrown hairs.
Easy on delicate skin — A chemical-free, all-natural treatment.
Threading is suitable for people of all skin types and hair colors, unlike some other hair removal methods.
Built-in spa time — Unless you're an expert threader, this treatment will require a quick spa retreat, which comes with built-in relaxation.
After threading, take care of your skin.
While there are minimal hazards, threading might cause minor skin irritation, so it's crucial to treat your skin gently afterward. If you're feeling uneasy, apply a cold compress to the affected region to minimize redness and then moisturize. Exfoliation should be avoided for a few days after your treatment if you have sensitive skin.
