Threading Q & A

Solaris Laser & Skin Care

What is Eyebrow Threading?

Eyebrow threading is a quick and efficient method for removing unwanted hair from the eyebrows. Originally practiced in Asia and the Middle East, this alternative to waxing and plucking is gentler on sensitive skin. It removes only your hair, leaving your skin intact, unlike some waxing treatments.

Threading results in clean, well-defined brows that frame your eyes. In addition to your eyebrows, you can have your sideburns, lip, chin, neck, and even your fingers threaded.

How Does Threading Work?

During threading, the beautician twists a thin cotton thread into a double strand and then sweeps it across your skin in a smooth movement. Unwanted hairs get caught in the twisted thread and swiftly and gently lift free from the follicle. Most clients find threading less painful than waxing, and since threading targets individual hairs, you have less redness and skin irritation.

Eyebrow threading sessions usually take about five minutes, while the upper lip may need about three minutes. If you have your whole face threaded, the treatment may take up to 20 minutes.

The benefits of threading last for two to six weeks, depending on your body’s natural hair growth cycles. Every client has different needs. You can have touch-ups as often as you like because hair can be removed soon after it emerges from the follicle.

Why Should I Choose Threading Over Another Hair Removal Technique?

One of the main benefits of eyebrow threading is that the eyebrow is shaped from above and below the brow line. It is also extraordinarily precise. For example, if you tweeze your brows at home, you may accidentally pluck the wrong hairs and leave gaps or holes in your brow or create an odd shape to your arch. Other benefits to threading include:

  • Less skin irritation than waxing
  • Less messy and time-consuming
  • No need for chemical or artificial waxes
  • Slower regrowth
  • No need for hair to be long
  • Removes fine hairs
  • Doesn’t cause breakouts
  • Suitable for clients who use Accutane or Retin-A
