Threading is an ancient Asian epilation technique where an aesthetician uses loops of fine thread to “lasso” unwanted hairs and pull them out from the follicle. Some clients choose threading instead of waxing for several reasons. First, if you have active outbreaks or skin issues, or have recently had retinol or other skin treatments, such as chemical peels, waxing may irritate your skin, so threading is a safer, more comfortable option. Secondly, threading allows the aesthetician to shape brows more precisely than can be achieved by waxing.

Waxing vs Threading

While neither method of hair removal is better than the other, waxing and threading have their own merits, pros and cons. Our aestheticians will consult with you and make recommendations, so you get the treatment that is right for you.

Waxing pros and cons

  • Waxing takes less time than threading
  • Waxing can result in smoother skin because the treatment also removes dead skin cells
  • Waxing can be used on any part of the body
  • Waxing can irritate skin a little after the treatment
  • Waxing is not as precise as threading

Threading pros and cons

  • Eyebrow threading is more precise than brow waxing
  • Threading results may last a little longer than waxing results
  • Threading is best if you have skin issues or have experienced irritation from wax
  • Threading takes longer than waxing
  • Threading is limited to the facial hair (brow, chin, upper lip, forehead, neck, cheeks, jawline)
