Having a hairless face contributes to a youthful appearance, ensures a clear field of vision, and helps a person score dates with hard-to-impress department-store mannequins. Get smooth and suave with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a full-face threading with eyebrow shaping (a $50 value) at Star Image Facial Threading in San Mateo.
For centuries, facial threading has served as a safe and effective method of hair removal, utilizing twisted threads of pure cotton to pluck unwanted fluff from especially piliferous punims. The technique is natural, shuns chemicals, and doesn't stretch sensitive skin, ensuring that hair removal doesn't result in irritation or premature pelt crinkles. To polish off your full-face grooming, one of Star Image's experienced whisker wizards will hone in on your forehead, spinning caterpillars into majestic, sharp-lined cocoons with clean and tailored arches. Façades emerge from threading treatments looking fresh and defined, ready to sit proudly for portraits painted with brushes made of retired human stubble.
Hair removal can be a painful process—skin is left raw from harsh waxes and brows can be left almost bare after over-plucking. But at Paris Studio, clients can rest assured that a perfect arch won't come at the expense of their skin. An ancient Eastern depilation technique, threading offers tight control over target areas, eschews the use of chemicals, and won't stretch or peel the skin the way waxing does. Using a pure cotton string, the technicians loop around numerous hairs at once to quickly sweep unwanted strands before they have a chance to cry out and warn the others. Besides streamlining bulky brows, the technique can also be used to smooth larger areas including the upper lips, sideburns, and hairline.
