Which is Better?
In a constant battle to attain the status quo of the best hair removal method, eyebrow threading wins hands down! Other hair removal techniques like tweezing and waxing come with a huge list of downsides. To start with, tweezing removes the wrong hairs and creates gaping holes or divots that simply spoil the shape of your brows. Waxing is no good either. It tugs and pulls at your brow and has enough potential to peel off a skin layer. Such harsh treatments only quicken the onset of wrinkles.
So let’s take a look at the benefits of brow threading:
-Brow threading is less time consuming as well as less messy than waxing.
-It’s also completely natural and involves nil use of artificial waxes, invasive techniques and harsh chemicals.
-Hair takes time to grow after a threading session. Hair growth is not as fast as after tweezing.
-Threading targets individual hairs and preserves the natural shape of your brows. Thus, over time, hair growth becomes more sparse and fine.
-It is an inexpensive alternative to waxing and laser treatment.
-It is a dermatologist recommended option for women with extra sensitive skin that’s prone to acne and excessive breakouts.
How is threading done?
When you visit iBrow Threads, the threading expert first takes a thin thread of cotton and twists it to a double strand. This double thread is then swept along the skin in a rhythmic motion to uproot unwanted hair from its follicles carefully. While the threader does put the thread between her lips to maintain it in the taught position, you can be sure that the part of the thread that touches her mouth will never touch your face. The entire process is done with precision and finesse, and the end result is highly satisfactory.
Can anyone get threading done?
Eyebrow threading is a risk free, non-invasive and effective technique that suits all skin types. In fact, the dermatologists heartily recommend threading to people with super sensitive skin. However, if your skin is extra sensitive, please ask that we don’t use the aftercare aloe vera gel that your threader will apply after threading. If needed at home, you could simply rub ice cubes over the brow area to reduce the pinkness and pain at the site.
Does threading hurt?
Most people who choose threading (over waxing) will admit that it causes only a slight degree of discomfort, which is in fact, nothing compared to the pain and injury that can be caused by brow waxing. Because threading targets individual hairs, it keeps skin irritation to a bare minimum. Care is taken to refrain from pulling the sensitive skin around the eyes. For those sensitive to depilatory products and waxing, there is nil exposure to irritants.
How long will it take?
A simple session of brow threading takes around 15 minutes. During the session, you can just lean back and relax and let our brow technicians perfectly sculpt our brows 😊
How long does it last for?
Depending on your genetics, lifestyle choices, the area of face and hair type, a full regrowth may take around 4 -6 weeks. With repeated threading, the hair that grows back is sparser and finer. This is because eyebrow threading applies pressure on the hair roots, that get weakened during this process.
Can I specify what shape I want to achieve?
You can definitely specify how you want your eyebrows to be shaped through threading. To begin with, discuss with your threading expert on the brow shape you want as well as how thin or thick you would like them. Threading is so marvellous that it can create wonderfully shaped eyebrows even out of sparse hair. Even if your brows lack a natural arch, you can still opt to get them shaped that way through threading! However, remember, that to get the arched shape, your expert would have to remove more hair and create thinner eyebrows. So, if you desire a thicker eyebrow shaped according to your natural contours, don’t opt for a natural arch.
To sum up, eyebrow threading is a potent hair removal technique that’s specifically designed for the fast paced and comfort loving women (and men!!) of today’s society.
So, give your brows a little extra fleek, we promise you won’t be disappointed!!
