Frequently Asked Questions
Question - What is eyebrow threading?
Answer - Threading is an ancient and eco-friendly form of hair removal practiced for centuries in the Middle East. A twisted cotton thread is rolled over the desired hairline, such as the eyebrow, extracting the hair at the follicle. Unlike tweezing, threading can remove an entire row of hair at once. Since the hair is removed at the follicle level regrowth is much slower and thinner.
Question - Does eyebrow theading hurt?
Answer - Eyebrow threading is less painful than waxing. The sensation is equivalent to that of tweezing several hairs at once. Unlike waxing, which actually removes a thin layer of skin during the process, threading only removes unwanted hair sparing delicate skin.
Question - What areas can be threaded?
Answer - Most areas on the body can be threaded. Aside from eyebrow threading, Prime Brows West Hollywood can also remove unwanted hair from a wide variety of areas such as neck, hands and feet. View our full list of threading services here.
Question - What is the down-time after threading?
Answer - There is little to no down-time after a threading procedure. If minor skin irritation does occur it usually dissipates within an hour.
Question - What are the benefits of eyebrow threading?
Answer - Precision is a major benefit of eyebrow threading. Our threading practitioners remove small segments of hair, even one hair at a time if desired, during the threading process. Eyebrow threading gives the practitioner more control and the ability to create a shape unique to each persons' facial structure. Eyebrow threading is great for people with sensitive skin or those using acne medication such as Retin A. Threading only removes hair and doesn't cause trauma to delicate facial tissue. Most threading services usually take less than 15 minutes to perform.
