Eyebrow threading is a depilation technique which originated in India, although it is also widely practiced in the Middle East. Salons in Western nations offered the service to Middle Eastern clients for decades before European and American women became interested and the popularity of eyebrow threading skyrocketed. The hair removal technique is not just for the eyebrows: threading can be used to remove other facial and body hair as well.
Eyebrow threading involves twisting a piece of thread, usually cotton, into a double strand. This double stranded thread is used to pick up a line of hair and then remove it, creating a very clean, precise hairline. Eyebrow threading is the technique preferred by Indian movie stars, who are often distinguished by their crisp brow lines.
Eyebrow threading can be used to eliminate a unibrow, raise the arch of the eyebrow, or add shape and definition to the brow. Because it removes hair by the follicle, it is a reasonably long lasting hair removal technique as well. Repeat visits after three to four weeks are standard. The technique is also not terribly expensive because it is easy to do quickly and does not require costly chemical ingredients. For women who would like to pursue a more natural beauty regimen, eyebrow threading is a good choice, since it does not use harmful products.
Eyebrow threading is a preferred hair removal technique for a number of reasons. Unlike tweezing or plucking, eyebrow threading removes one clean line of hair all at once, making it much quicker and easier to shape the brows. Eyebrow threading also will not harm the skin like wax and some depilatory creams can. If done correctly, the skin should not be red or irritated for more than a few minutes after the eyebrow threading session. Some aestheticians also find it easier to shape eyebrows using this technique than other methods available.
Threading requires a lot of practice and precision in making the hair removal as painless as possible for the receiver. The person dispensing the beauty treatment for hair removing via threading is required to gently and precisely twist a certain length of cotton thread around both hands and twist and catch each hair strand that is to be removed. This twisting action of the thread traps the hair and lifts it out of the follicle.
One of the greatest benefits of threading is that is less messier and faster as compared to waxing and tweezing for hair removal, especially hair on the upper lip and eyebrows and also a lot more effective and less painful.

The treatment takes approximately 60 minutes for your first treatment (which includes consultation) and approximately 45 minutes on subsequent treatments.
In most cases, taking only one treatment is not worth your while and is a waste of your investment. We highly recommend people to take up a series of 6 treatments, spaced 7 to 10 days apart to prolong the results and maximize your investment.
After your treatment, you risk getting sunburnt quite easily. We highly recommend using the Dermalogica SPF 30+ products immediately after your treatment to prevent getting sunburnt.
