Threading is an ancient method of hair removal commonly practiced in Eastern countries like Egypt and India. This method of hair removal is becoming increasingly popular here in the west due to its many benefits.
This very neat and precise form of hair removal is most commonly used to shape eyebrows and remove unwanted facial hair. However, because of its versatility, threading can also be used to remove hair from other parts of the body provided they are flat. The area from the belly button to pubic bone or even toes can be treated using threading, but areas such as the bikini line are not suitable.
Another excellent benefit of threading is that over time frequent threading can cause a hair follicle to become damaged or disabled, this in turn makes the hair growth slowdown thus preventing future hair growth. This can mean that results gained from threading, could, overtime become permanent.
To perform the treatment a piece of 100% cotton is twisted and pulled along the area of unwanted hair, this traps the hair in a mini lasso, which when twisted, catches the hairs and lifts each hair directly out of its follicle. Threading can remove entire rows of hairs which results in straighter lines than those achieved through waxing or tweezing. At Holistic Eyes we use special cotton that is antibacterial.
In most cases the sensation experienced during the procedure is similar to that of waxing, tinting or plucking and will depend on the pain tolerance of the client concerned. The hairs usually show re-growth within 2 to 4 weeks (depending on a client’s individual hair growth cycle). Most clients find that the results achieved from threading last longer than those of other methods of hair removal.
Threading has several other advantages over other methods of hair removal: As well as being faster than many other options, it is extremely safe and hygienic. No chemicals or substances are used in the process. Nothing but the thread comes into contact with the skin, thus making the risk of an irritation or reaction highly unlikely. In fact, people who have skin which is too sensitive for other methods or hair removal, or people who have experienced reactions to waxing, sugaring, creams or lasers find that they CAN experience threading without any problems. The reason for this is, unlike other methods of hair removal the top layer of skin is not stripped away during the process of threading.
In addition, people who are on medication which conflicts with sugaring, waxing etc find that they are able to have threading done.
Because of our commitment to the continued Health and Safety of our clients, as with all our treatments at Holistic Eyes, clients will be required to complete our Health and Safety form in advance of this treatment and bring it with them to their appointment.
Because Holistic Eyes is a home based business our insurance only covers us for each client being treated. Because of this we respectfully ask you not to bring children or dependents with you when you come for your treatment.
