Frequently asked questions
What is the threading?
Threading is a hair removal technique that has been practiced for centuries. Facial hair is removed swiftly yet meticulously from the most delicate areas of the face by knotting off thread and creating a trap that forces out hair by the root. It is the best alternative to waxing and tweezing, especially for sensitive skin. Unlike waxing, threading does not remove a layer of skin, which can leave the skin on your face susceptible to sun damage. By far the least invasive method of facial hair removal, threading can target individual hairs to get the precise shape and smooth finish you want.
If I get my full face threaded, will the hair grow back thicker?
No. After repeated threading, the hair actually tends to weaken and grow back finer.
Is the threading painful?
Threading is comparable to tweezing or waxing. You may feel a pinching or light scraping sensation, but most customers agree that threading is no more uncomfortable than other hair removal methods.
How does threading help?

How long does threading take?
The upper lip takes just a few minutes, and a simple eyebrow threading takes 5-10 minutes. A full-face threading session lasts for 15-20 minutes.
How often should you get your brows threaded?
Hair regrowth can vary from person to person but I recommend between every two to five weeks. Since threading removes hair from the root like waxing, it lasts just as long.

What is a facial?
A basic facial is a skin treatment that cleanses pores exfoliates away dead skin cells, and treats common skin concerns with a custom mask. This multi-step process is meant to rejuvenate and nourish faces, making skin appear healthier and younger. It is also apopular spa treatment to pamper and relax, right up there with a massage.
What happens during a facial?
Each facial begins with a consultation that helps the aesthetician determine the right products for your skin type and concerns. Once that’s been determined, the relaxing part begins! Most basic facials include some version of the following five steps:
1 . Cleansing
Aestheticians massage a cleanser into the face,neck, and d6colletage to remove any traces of makeup and dirt. Using warm water paired with a facial sponge, cloth, or cotton pad, they remove the cleanser, dry faces, and evaluate skin. This step helps them determine what type of custom mask they will apply later.
Depending on the spa you’re visiting, your aesthetician may buff away dead skin cells with an exfoliating cream or scrub and/or open up pores with steam.
This process is done to clear individual pores that have become clogged with excess oil or dead skin cells, which can form blackheads and acne. Aestheticians will perform the extractions either by hand or with a special metal tool.
A facial typically also includes a massage of the face and often the upper body, too–that may be used to improve lymphatic drainage.
5. Masks and more
Aestheticians then apply a custom mask, perhaps a clay-based one to treat oiliness or a hydrating one to combat dryness. The facial concludes with a serum, moisturizer, and sunscreen if it’s daytime.
How long does a facial take?
Most basic facials last 60 minutes. Basic facial may temporarily improve skin but, but they can’t treat severe skin issues, including wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and anything more than very mild acne. Those skin concerns typically require more intensive solutions, such as chemical peels, microdermabrasions, or collagen-inducing laser treatments.
Is there a facial for men?
Men’s facials are a lot like women’s facials but are formulated to the unique needs of men’s skin. They usually deal with problems men commonly face, such as razor burn and ingrown hairs, dullness, and sensitivity.
