What is Eyebrow threading?
Epilation, commonly known as threading, uses a twisted cotton or polyester thread to extract unwanted facial hairs at the root. Originating thousands of years ago in India and the Middle East, this method of hair removal is a popular alternative to tweezing, waxing, and shaving.
Threading, as opposed to shaving, slows hair regrowth by removing hairs at the follicle level. Instead of tweezing individual hairs, epilation allows a technician to remove lines of hair at once to create a smooth, natural finish. Waxing reddens the eyebrow area, and in some cases, may cause a skin burn. Many individuals with sensitive skin prefer threading for its gentle treatment on the skin. Epilation also allows for precise hair removal control, making the technique ideal for shaping eyebrows.
