Facial threading

How Does it Work?
A cotton thread is pulled along unwanted hair in a twisting motion, to trap hair in a mini lasso, and lifts hair right out of the follicle.

The Pros
It's extremely sanitary. Nothing but the thread touches the skin, and it's thrown away after use.
Great for people with 'trouble' brows. Threading has this amazing ability to be so concise in the hair that it removes. It's sworn by people who say they can never get their eyebrows even, despite tweezing, waxing or sugaring.
No chemicals are applied on the skin. When people have certain circumstances, or are taking medicine that conflicts with waxing and sugaring, they can still get threading done.
It's very fast. Although every technician is different, it takes the person who has threaded my eyebrows two minutes flat, from start to finish.
Temporary results can turn into permanent. Over time, frequent threading can cause the hair follicle to become damaged, and stop growing hair.

The Cons
If done incorrectly, the hairs can break. If hair is broken from an inexperienced threading professional, hair re-growth will show up much quicker.
It can be hard to find someone experienced threading hair. It's a true art that has been passed down through the generations, and isn't something you can easily learn in a couple classes- especially to do brow shaping. Unless you live in a large metropolitan city, you probably won't find a salon or spa that does threading.
Some hair growth is necessary. 1/16 inch of hair is needed for thread to wrap around.
Not generally performed on the body, only the face.

Ouch Factor
The discomfort is similar to tweezing, but the process is much, much quicker. Some people say they have very little pain from threading, but it has a lot to do with the skill of the technician. Use a warm compress to relax the hair follicle for an easier exit, and apply a numbing spray prior to service if you have a low tolerance to any discomfort.

I went for a facial threading last two weeks. My firstime try buat benda ni. Ape rasanya? Serious sakit weh!!! Esp kat area mulut n mata. Memang superb sakit la. Berair mata ni, tp i tetap maintain kunun2 rilex xjerit. Akak yg buat tu siap ckp i among yg rilex n xjerit n mata pun xla berair sgt. Dlm hati ni, Tuhan jela yg tau rasa sakit tu kan. Rasa mcm xmo g buat lg dah. Tp mcm best gak kan. Mencabar =p Btw it cost me rm20 and took about an hour. 

cobaan maintain rilex yang separuh berjaya

senyuman dalam kesakitan. huhu
