For years women and men have been subject to the torture of facial waxing, tweezing, shaving and other painful hair removal techniques in the name of being modern and attractive.
These outdated techniques are the only options we have and each one has more cons than pros. Waxing is painful, removes a thin layer of skin and it is inaccurate. You could end up with a badly shaped and thin eyebrow. You also leave the salon with a bright red face covered in shiny skin ointment.
Tweezing is another ineffective option. It is more accurate but you have to pull each individual hair out and this can take a long time. It is mainly meant for touch ups and not an efficient solution to facial hair removal. Shaving is another option but this has its obvious drawbacks. The hair grows back quickly which can leave you with ingrown hairs and red irritated skin.
The need to remove facial hair will always exist and it seems that people are willing to suffer through painful, unsuccessful methods of temporary hair removal to get the results they are looking for.
What if this was the end of ineffective hair removal and there was another option that was painless, accurate, didn’t use any chemicals or ointments and doesn’t traumatize your skin. It’s true and it’s called facial threading.
Facial threading is not a new way to remove hair, in fact it’s ancient. It has been practiced in places like China, the Middle East and India for centuries and for good reason.
The benefits far outweigh the risks and once you try it yourself you will see why threading is becoming popular and mainstream with Americans all over the country.
The process of facial threading is very simple and only requires the use of cotton threads that the technician twists together to gently pull the hairs out by their root. This means that the hair will take longer to grow back and it won’t leave your face red and irritated as it is not a violent action like waxing.
Threading is a great option for people with sensitive skin or people who prefer to not use chemicals on their skin. You really have to try this for yourself to see just how simple and effective this method is in removing unwanted facial hair.
To try it right here in beautiful Valencia, California visit the Elegant Shapes Brow Shaping Loft located right across the street from the Valencia Mall next to KOHLS. Once you try facial threading for yourself it will be your preference for hair removal too.
