Threading is one of the oldest methods of hair removal practiced.
It is very popular in Indian and Middle Eastern cultures.
Practitioners use a pure, thin, twisted cotton thread which is rolled over untidy hairlines, face, lip or brow, plucking the hair at the follicle level. Unlike tweezing where a single hair is pulled out each time, threading can remove an entire row of hair, resulting in a straighter line.
Threading has several advantages over other methods the biggest being that it is suitable for every skin type, even skin that is too sensitive for laser hair removal or skin that is being treated with Retin-A.
