Upper Lip Threading

Threading Process

Threading, an ancient hair removal method native to Asia, has been modernised to meet your upper lip hair removal needs here at Dream Nails. We employ a thin cotton or polyester thread that our skilled beauticians double, then twist. They roll this over the areas of unwanted hair, plucking the hair from the follicle level. Unlike tweezing where a single hair is pulled out each time, our threading technique can remove short rows of hair. This affords you a quick and precise upper lip threading treatment.

Threading is very delicate on your skin, and is ideally suited to people who have sensitive or acne-prone skin. The process doesn't involve any creams, wax or other treatment materials, making it perfect for those who prefer a natural approach. Despite being a quick process, we ensure every client receives a personalized, thorough treatment to ensure maximum comfort and effectiveness.

Result of Upper Lip Threading

Upper Lip Threading at Dream Nails leaves your skin looking smooth and hair-free. Apart from delivering immediate results, threading also can lead to a diminished hair growth over time, as it tends to damage the hair follicle, thereby inhibiting growth. The hair that does grow back will be finer and less noticeable.

While experiences differ for each individual, the results usually last for about 2-6 weeks, depending on your hair growth. The end result is a perfectly groomed, naturally smooth looking lip area. This all is achieved without the redness, irritation, or ingrown hairs that other hair removal methods can cause. With threading, you get precision and long-lasting results, with minimal discomfort or skin damage. Come to Dream Nails for a seamless upper lip threading experience.

Does upper lip threading suit sensitive skin?

Yes, definitely. Threading is a very gentle process, making it suitable for sensitive or acne-prone skin types. It doesn't involve any creams or wax and it's less likely to cause irritation or redness as compared to other hair removal methods.

Why might I choose threading rather than other hair removal methods?

Threading offers precision, it's quick and provides long-lasting results. It's a natural, chemical-free process ideally suited for those with sensitive skin. Over time, threading can even lead to diminished hair growth.

How long does the result of upper lip threading last?

It largely depends on your individual hair growth, but generally, the results of upper lip threading last for about 2-6 weeks. The hair that grows back is usually finer and less noticeable.

Will upper lip threading damage my skin?

No, upper lip threading is very gentle on the skin. Unlike other hair removal methods, threading doesn’t cause redness, irritation, or ingrown hairs. It’s perfect if you want smooth, hair-free skin without any skin damage.

How often should I get upper lip threading done?

That largely depends on your individual hair growth cycle. However, typically upper lip threading results can last from 2 to 6 weeks. Regular threading appointments help maintain a smooth, groomed look.

Can I wear makeup after threading?

We recommend waiting a few hours before applying makeup to let your skin calm down post-threading. However, if you wish to apply makeup immediately after, we suggest using products that are non-comedogenic and designed for sensitive skin.

Does threading make hair growth finer?

Yes, one of the benefits of threading is that the hair that grows back after threading is often less coarse and finer than before. Over time, regular threading might lead to slower hair re-growth as well.

How is threading more beneficial than waxing or tweezing?

Threading is more precise and faster than tweezing and it does not involve any chemicals or heat, unlike waxing. It's perfect for sensitive skin and reduces the chance of irritation and skin damage.
