What is threading? An ancient method of hair removal with origins in Arabia and South Asia. It is a 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 lengths 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, and the top layers of skin are not peeled nor traumatized in the process. Threading is highly recommended and an excellent option for those who use Retin A, Accutane and similar products.
