Threading and Waxing Threading is a Mediterranean art of hair removal, which is used in many countries, particularly in India and Egypt. It ˇs basically removing hair at the root, predominantly on the face.

A 100% cotton thread is twisted and rolled along the surface of the skin entwining the hairs in the thread, which are then lifted out from the follicle. This ˇs a smooth and gentle processes , and far less painful as waxing. In fact, this technique gives your face clean lines and your eyebrows an incomparable stunning shape.

Threading is very hygienic, as a new thread is used every time. If you have your facial hair threaded consistently, the hair follicle will weaken and become less dense, so eventually there is less or no hair growth. Beauty therapist, Ravina Lodhia says, “Threading just pulls the hair from the follicles, whereas waxing can peel or burn the top layer of your facial skin, and overtime it can result in the skin loosening and developing wrinkles”.

Precautions

For sensitive skin waxing/threading may result in minor bumps, rashes, etc. More specifically, waxing/threading can result in temporary enlargement of the hair follicles that can allow bacteria, normally residing on the skin, to enter the follicles and cause superficial or deep skin infections. If an infection is noted, it should be evaluated and treated by a dermatologist as soon as possible.

If you have never waxed/threaded before, please request a complimentary patch test before you undergo waxing/threading treatment. We recommend waiting 24 - 48 hours after the patch test to see if any adverse reactions occur before a full treatment is performed.

Specialists will wear disposable gloves during treatments if they have any hand injuries and during all bikini treatments. You may also request that the Specialist wear gloves during any treatment.

After-Care

The area that was treated may be more sensitive than usual for the next 24 - 48 hours.

Please be kind to your skin, avoid harsh products, that may have adverse reactions, for the next 24 - 48 hours after your treatment.

a) Refrain from using skin care products, like cleansers and moisturizers, which contain acids (i.e. alpha-hydroxy, glycolic, salicylic, etc.)

b) Although these acidic ingredients help remove the dead outer layers of skin, they may cause an adverse reaction after hair removal, depending on the sensitivity of your skin.
