Threading is an ancient Middle Eastern technique that is becoming common in the United States. An aesthetician uses a doubled-up strand of cotton thread to twist around individual hairs, and then pulls them out from the roots.
The procedure is used mainly for facial hair including brows, forehead, upper lips, cheeks, sides, chin and neck. With threading you can never go wrong as compare to waxing, there are so many contraindication such as tanning, chemical peel, microdermabrasion and using topical acne medications for example:
- Adapalene (Acne medication)
- Alustra (Retin A)
- Avage (See Tazorac - Acne medication)
- Retin A (Acne and Anti-aging medication)
- Avita (See Retin A)
- Differin (Acne medication)
- Isotretinoin (See Accutane)
- Renova (See Retin A)
- Tazarac (Acne medication)
Threading is the only alternative for waxing and the client is not worried about getting burnt or have uneven eyebrows.
