Contrary to the popular belief that threading or waxing causes rapid grow hair, threading in fact reduces the hair growth by damaging the hair follicles and disrupts the growth pattern of hair from these follicles. The use of anti-bacterial cotton thread makes the process of threading completely hygienic and 100% safe. The anti-bacterial cotton thread is twisted and rolled in a special manner so as to lift and trap the facial hair in between the two threads held between the fingers,and by slightly jerking the thread, the hair are pulled out from the follicles. The thread is discarded after every use so as to maintain cleanliness and hygiene. This technique is completely natural and causes no damage to the skin. Those who are on acne treatment and are told to refrain from waxing or any other chemical procedure can opt for threading after consulting a dermatologist.

A talc-free powder is applied to the area initially before threading so as to set all the hair in a direction which facilitates threading and aloe vera gel is applied afterwards to minimise the burning sensation. Aloe vera cream heals the skin rapidly and prevents the reddening of skin. The complete process of threading the face takes around 30-40 minutes only when done by an experienced and skilled professional. Threading should be done only in reputed salons who have trained and skilled experts since the skin of the face is extremely delicate and any mishap can leave the face turn red and intensify the burning sensation. Most experts advice their customers to wash their face with ice water after threading since cold water can cause the irritation to subside quickly.
