Threading hair is an ancient method commonly practiced in Eastern countries, like Egypt and India, but is now very popular here in the UK. Threading removes the entire hair follicle, lasting up to 6 weeks.
Threading is 100% natural; there are no artificial chemicals or invasive techniques used.
Beautiful Eyebrow definition is achieved with a smooth Finish.
Threading is kinder to your Skin than waxing which pulls on the skin which is delicate.
Hair is removed from the root, so even the short stubbly hairs can be removed.
Reduces Hair re-growth.
Takes on average 10 Minutes of your time.
For first timers there may be a very slight burning sensation, which will quickly subside. This sensation is the result of the hairs being removed by the root. The pain will become less noticeable with successive treatments. For those with sensitive skin, we will ensure you are looked after and any redness will disappear within 15-30 minutes, depending on the sensitivity of the skin.
Before: Do not apply make-up to the area to be treated. Avoid using tweezers a week before treatment. If you are aware of any skin conditions, allergies or any other problems, please inform the Threading Technician.
After: You may have some soreness and experience redness if you have sensitive skin. Applying rose water or calamine lotion (in more severe cases) to the affected area will help.
Step 1: Your Therapist will twist the thread and pull it along the area of chosen unwanted hair. The thread acts like a mini-lasso and lifts the hair follicles directly from the roots
Step 2: Lower area of the eyebrow is threaded first then the centre and upper section of the eyebrows are completed.
Step 3: After shaping the eyebrows, your face is wiped to remove any hair which has fallen on the skin. A cooling agent is applied to reduce any redness of the skin.
My favourite place to go for sunbeds and they always give good results. The bulbs are frequently changed and as they have the sun angel there is the option for people that have sensitive skin.Casey Gillett
