What is Threading?


By using a piece of thread, hair can be removed swiftly yet meticulously from the most delicate areas of the face. Facial threading is the best alternative to waxing and tweezing, especially for sensitive skin. Unlike waxing, threading does not remove a layer of skin, which may cause sun damage. Threading is by far the least invasive method of facial hair removal, leaving the skin clean and smooth.


Originating in the Middle East, threading has been practiced for centuries. Only a handful of salons and spas offer this exclusive service. Due to the lack of training programs available, many skin care professionals either do not know about threading or are unfamiliar with the process of threading. The traditional method of threading is taken a step further by combining it with aromatherapy skin preparations for optimum results.


How does it work?


By knotting the thread and creating a trap, hairs are caught and forced out by the root. The rapid back and forth movement removes the hair in an efficient manner. Depending upon the client’s needs, hair can be removed individually or a few at a time.

Benefits of threading versus Waxing


  • Does not peel off a layer of skin
  • Hair does not grow back as fast
  • Skin does not get as red and irritated
  • Can pull out individual hairs
  • Hair does not need to be long, but just above the skin
  • Will not produce more hairs or make hairs stronger
  • Will pick up the finest hairs from the skin
  • Leaves the skin smooth
  • Does not stretch the skin like waxing thus preventing premature fine lines and wrinkles
