Aside from wearing boldly lettered sandwich boards, the human body communicates most clearly and efficiently through its feelers and its eyebrows. Today's Groupon gives eyebrows the customization they seek: for $6, you get a session of eyebrow threading at Esthetics Center in Lenexa (a $12 value).
Equipped with cotton string twisted into a double strand, sculptresses at Esthetics Center use the ancient process of threading to fashion eyebrows to a stylish arch while removing unwanted and unsightly whiskers from the brow. Whereas traditional hair-removal methods such as plucking, tweezing, and blowtorching induce wince-worthy discomfort and the potential to damage skin, threading is a mostly pain-free, five-minute process that produces smooth results that can last from three to four weeks. Gossamer gurus manipulate cotton strands in the same direction as the root, harnessing the control to more accurately form filaments, sharply crafting curves and arches to better replicate adored Midwestern landmarks and ripe polish sausages.
Skin experts at Esthetics Center rely on noninvasive scientific advancements to cultivate smooth, youthful complexions but draw on an ancient Indian art to redesign unruly eyebrows. Skin analyses can lead to custom facials with Shahnaz Husain herbal creams, enzyme therapy gentle enough for those with rosacea, or the outing of secret identities with better skin. Advanced exfoliation procedures involving microcrystal sprays and chemical serums reveal fresh, healthy skin as well as the depth of the aestheticians' knowledge. Body and facial waxing is an exclusive privilege of women at Esthetics Center, but the team extends their skills in eyebrow threading—an age-old technique that uses thread to nab hair but not skin—to both sexes.
