Eyebrow threading is a centuries-old method of removing unwanted hair from the brow area. Beauticians precisely pull extra hair with the help of a thin cotton thread. While hair regrowth may diminish over time, the effects are not initially permanent.
Thus, the eyebrow threading effect usually lasts 2-3 weeks, although every individual’s hair grows back at a different pace. Full regrowth might take two to six weeks depending on the hair type and growth rate. Moreover, touch-up sessions that are less intrusive than an entire brow shaping will help prolong the effect.
Your eyebrows can be re-threaded as soon as the hairs are at least 1/16 of an inch long, or slightly above the skin. Repeating the threading procedure will eventually result in finer hair. Since hairs are pulled out with the root, there are no sharp edges, as with shaving, and the regrowth becomes softer over time.
Instead of trimming the hair, eyebrow threading eliminates it all, right down to the root. To ensure the area is sterile and the hairs are visible, the skin around the eyebrows is properly cleaned with a light cleaner or an alcohol wipe prior to starting.
The hair removal instrument used in threading is simply thread twisted into a figure eight and held between a beautician’s hands and occasionally their teeth. The thread moves back and forth across the skin as the beautician manipulates the shape to grip hair by the base and pull it free.
The entire threading process takes approximately ten to fifteen minutes for both eyebrows.
In the delicate regions surrounding the eye, eyebrow threading is one of the most accurate and precise ways to remove the hair. Professionals have better control over selective hair removal thanks to brow threading procedures as compared to less exact methods.
Ingrown hairs are less likely with eyebrow threading and that may benefit all skin types. If done by qualified professionals, it is a quick and relatively painless experience.
