  3. Put the loops on the thumb and forefinger of each hand. Try simultaneously to bring the fingers of one hand and pry off the fingers of the other, so that the loops change size and the twisting section moves from one side to the other.
  4. Now lean the design against the treatment site so that the large loop is located above the excess hairs, right at the roots (against the growth line).
  5. Next, quickly move the fingers located in the larger loop, and move those that are located in the smaller loop. The flagellum will move, the hairs will fall into it, twist on a thread and quickly disappear.
