It is a very delicate procedure, making it suitable for even the most sensitive skins.
The art of threading may be seen as a gentle and precise twist of a length of cotton thread, which is twisted along the hairs to be removed.
The twisting action of the thread traps the hair and lifts it out of the follicle.
Threading is more effective and less painful than tweezing; hair re-growth becomes finer and sparser after regular treatments; and the top layers of skin are not peeled or traumatized in the process.
