Threading

What is Threading?

 In threading, a thin cotton thread is doubled, then twisted. It is then rolled over areas of unwanted hair, plucking the hair at the follicle level. Unlike tweezing, where single hairs are pulled out one at a time, threading can remove short rows of hair. 

Is it painful?

Threading is the gentlest hair removal treatment for your skin, and the pain is minimal, often being described as the feeling of tweezing a few hairs at once.
