I just got my eyebrows and upper lip threaded. If you have no idea what I'm talking about....this post is for you.
Threading is an ancient method of hair removal with origins in Arabia and South Asia. It is very delicate procedure, making it suitable for even the most sensitive skin. The art of threading may be seen in the gentle and precise twisting of a length of cotton thread which is twisted along the hairs which are to be removed. The twisting action of the thread traps the hair and lifts it out of the follicle. Threading is more effective and less painful than tweezing; hair re-growth becomes finer and more sparse after regular treatments; and the top layers of skin are not peeled or traumatized in the process. Threading is highly recommended and an excellent option for those who use Retin-A, Accutane, and similar products.
I have a lady here that is fabulous!!!! She really has a great talent for shaping the brow and not over-doing it. It is super fast and doesn't have the side-effects, so to speak, of waxing. I know when I have waxed before, it rips the top layer of skin off and causes breakouts. Not so with threading. It only removes the hair. I have very fair skin (that's a nice way of saying pasty), and it doesn't irritate my skin and the redness is very minimal. It's great for any facial hair removal. I have several friends who take their husbands to get threaded!
So try it out! Your brows will thank you!
Oh! And here is a video of it...
