Can’t do Waxing? Try Threading!


Hair today gone tomorrow!? For many people with sensitive skin, hair removal can be quite a challenge, and some of us have to go through a lot of effort to remove their unwanted hair. As some of the older  options like waxing, sugaring and shaving can aggravate skin, Threading has become more popular for those with more delicate skin. Originating in the Middle East and South Asia, threading is an art form and finding a skilled threader can be challenging. But fear not! At Skin MD and Beyond, we have one of the best.

Find out why you should consider Threading!

Dr. Fiona Wright’s Tip:

Although we provide the traditional hair removal services of waxing, I usually recommend threading for those with sensitive skin -especially around the brow area. Waxing can be quite effective for the body, but waxing eyebrows can eventually scar the skin and lead to pigmentation problems, especially for women over 40.


Threading is done with a cotton thread that is pulled along unwanted hair in a twisting motion, to trap hair in a mini lasso, and lifts hair right out of the follicle. It is extremely sanitary since the thread is thrown away after use. If you use Retin-A, glycolic, salicylic, or any chemical peel treatments, threading is perfect since it does not conflict with treatments like waxing.

The expertise of the threading technique is very important because you want the hair removed quickly and without irritating your skin or hair follicles. Under the direction and design of my protocols, our skilled aesthetician (with 20+ years’ experience in threading) is engaged in a rigorous program of continuous training and testing, which provides you with one of the most proficient Threaders in the MetroPlex!
