Threading pulls hair out from the follicle root. When the hair is pulled out, the pore is opened. If the area is not clean, bacteria are able to enter into the pore, clogging it, and thereby causing a breakout.
'Breakouts' after eyebrow threading are usually one of two things – irritation or folliculitis. If you develop some minor redness and a few tiny little 'bumps', this may be a simple irritant reaction. For mild irritant reactions, a soothing aloe vera gel might be all you need (wash your hands before applying it!).
Tweezing, waxing and threading can cause breakouts on or between your brows. “You can get folliculitis, which is an infection of the hair follicle if it has been manipulated,” says Dr Sethi. Avoid it by using an antiseptic cleanser before and after, and cleanse with Betadine for a few days after.
Secondly, breakouts can happen after hair removal threading due to a condition called folliculitis, when bacteria enters the follicle. General irritation after hair threading will settle after a few days, however, if it persists it's best to check in with your GP.
Since threading involves removing hair from the root, it opens up the pores. So the first thing you should do post threading is to apply ice over the area in a circular motion. This constricts the blood vessels and closes pores, in turn reducing swelling and redness.
A gentle face wash a few hours after your treatment is recommended but ensure you don't exfoliate for at least 24 hours after your treatment.
Moisturize. Hydrate your skin as much as possible. As part of your daily and/or nightly beauty routine, apply a moisturizer that does not contain perfume or alcohol, since these can deter your healing process and cause more irritation.
Not only does it remove any unwanted facial hair, but it also includes an eyebrow thread! Facial threading has many other benefits as well, not just hair removal! It can reduce the appearance of dark spots and acne scars through the exfoliation that comes from threading. Looking for a glowing complexion?
Is threading good for face? Yes, threading is a very good facial hair removal method. Its effects last longer than waxing, tweezing or shaving and each time you get threaded, the hair grows thinner and finer, more bright and not so visible.
Threading offers more precision and is safer for those with sensitive, acne-prone skin, but many say waxing hurts less than threading and it is considered to be a more gentle approach to hair removal. It's also a surefire way to guarantee you're completely removing the hair from the follicle.
Cons - Like shaving, threading removes hair only from the surface which means it needs to be repeated regularly (usually monthly). Pain differs from person to person but it can sting quite a bit on sensitive skin. If done improperly (if the skin isn't stretched enough or threaded too harshly), it can leave minor cuts.
threading can cause skin irritations. On sensitive skins, there can be redness or a rash. Avoid threading on areas with eruptions, like pimples or acne. A zinc ointment or ice can be applied to soothe the skin.
Threading can open the pores on the surface of your skin, the working thread will run along the skin collecting the makeup/hairs thus distributing it around the open pores. This inevitably will contribute to irritation to the skin post threading. Prevention is better than cure.
Experiencing slight discomfort in the first two days after the procedure is normal, it will gradually reduce. Try keeping your head elevated for a week. Don't pull your facial skin, massage, scrub or exfoliate the skin for at least three weeks. You are also not supposed to wash or touch your face for at least 12 hours.
After threading, you can apply aloe vera lotion, extract or natural pulp to the affected areas, and it will significantly reduce the pain after threading.
Skip the Exfoliation and Makeup
On the day of your appointment, avoid using any exfoliating products on your facial skin. Freshly exfoliated skin is more sensitive, and threading hair from sensitive skin produces excess redness that can take time to fade. You should also refrain from wearing any facial makeup.
Exfoliates and Soothes the Skin
The cotton thread twists the hair out of the root, and while doing so, exfoliates the layer of skin to reveal soft and glowing skin. Exfoliating aids in speeding up your skin's process in order to allow it to behave younger and become rejuvenated.
Sometimes after threading, the hair follicles on your skin can get infected with bacteria, which can lead to breakouts. Pour some toner on a cotton ball and wipe your skin with it. Go for a toner that contains salicylic acid as it will not only break down the oil in the pore but also kill bacteria.
Why does threading and waxing last longer than plucking? It's because they remove the root along with the hair.
