Threading

Threading is a natural, fast, and precise technique for removing unwanted facial hair. A cotton thread is twisted and maneuvered over the skin to pull out a single or a group of hair follicles with high precision, leaving behind a beautiful smooth and soft skin.

Threading is fast, relatively inexpensive, and effective for facial hair removal

While we do offer other hair removal technologies such as laser hair removal, electrolysis, and waxing, our patients often choose threading because it is

  1. suitable and the most accurate technique for eyebrow shaping
  2. fast (5-10 minutes)
  3. relatively inexpensive
  4. an option for people who suffer from acne and are treated with Retin A.or accutane
  5. less abrasive and less painful than waxing

Threading is the safest and most effective method for removing facial hair for people who are on Retin A or Accutane.
