Benefits of Threading


Threading eyebrows is becoming the method of choice for many over waxing, and a gift to those with sensitive skin and/or thin skin.

Threading uses a thread to remove hair, whereas a wax-based resin is placed on the skin and then taken off to rid hair with waxing.


Why are the sensitive-prone turning to threading at Afreen Fashions beauty salon in Edinburgh over waxing? 


Master Threader and owner of AfreenFashions.com; Nialla Latif has learnt the skill of threading over a period of 20 years and explains some of the reasons;


Less contact with the skin. Threading has little to no contact with the skin. Waxing, however tugs at skin when the hair is removed, and can really irritate sensitive skin making it turn pink to extremely red..

Stop seeing red. The skin mostly gets red because of the wax tugging at the skin, not the actual removal of the hair. If you do get pink from threading, it usually goes away within the hour.

Delicate skin. The skin around the eyes is thin, and can get easily irritated from waxing even if it doesn't bother other body zones. Threading eyebrows is a true life saver for hair removal in the eye area.

No Contradictions Threading eyebrows doesn’t remove the top layer of skin like waxing. So even people that use Retin-A or take other medications that conflict with waxing, can still get threading.

Burn-free method. Most waxes are used warm, but can be heated up too much and burn the skin resulting in extreme pain and scabby skin. There's no chance of getting scorched with threading.

No one's allergic to string (that I know of). Sometimes having an allergic reaction is mistaken as sensitivity. Waxes are often based on a certain ingredient like: lavender, tea tree, chocolate, acai berry and the list goes on and on. With threading eyebrows there’s no need to worry

No Chemicals. Threading solely uses a string to remove the hair, unlike waxing that contains resins and preservatives. Artificial fragrances and ingredients are a foe to many with sensitive skin.
