More About Threading in Ottawa
Threading here in Ottawa is a process for hair removal that hails from Central Asia and India and allows for a more targeted level of removal than waxing or shaving and faster than using tweezers to pluck individual hair. Like the name implies, threading utilizes thread to remove hair from a target area. A cotton or polyester thread is doubled over then twisted to create a hair removal tool. Once the thread is prepared, it is then moved over areas of unwanted hair in a rolling motion that plucks hair at the level of the follicle.
One of the areas targeted the most for threading is the eyebrows because it is a small section of hair that needs specific targeting. Waxing your eyebrows runs the probability that you will remove more hair than you want to and using tweezers will take a long amount of time. Hair threading is also a healthy process for the body. Some waxing processes use chemicals that can burn or irritate the skin while the process of threading uses no chemicals.
Thread doesn’t cost a lot so each person receiving treatment gets a new piece of thread, making it extremely sanitary. In addition to receiving a new piece of thread in each treatment, nothing but the thread touches the skin ensuring that you aren’t having chemicals or oils exposed to the skin.
Threading hasn’t always been popular in the United States because it is an old art; this means that it may be hard to find a true professional. It also takes more than a couple of classes to learn how to thread hair properly; if not performed properly, you run the risk of breaking hair instead of removing them. Looking in nearby metropolitan hubs will be your best option for finding a threading professional.
It should be noted that there is a level of discomfort associated with threading. It is less than the level of pain experienced when waxing and compares to that of tweezing. The major difference is the pain experienced during threading is much shorter as the process is performed rather faster. Skilled technicians have methods for reducing the pain or discomfort felt during a treatment.
