Taking care of the skin where eyebrow threading took place is an important step in achieving the best results for your desired brow shape. An alternative to waxing and plucking, threading requires a simple string of twisted thread and skilled hands to remove unwanted facial hair. The piece of string is wrapped around a follicle of hair and then twisted until the hair is pulled out to remove the hair. In terms of brow threading specifically, this technique allows the artist to best control the thread to achieve precise shaping results.
Typically, a brow threading service lasts no more than 15 minutes. Full face threading, which usually includes the upper lip, sides, chin, and forehead, can take up to 45 minutes to complete.
Is Eyebrow Threading Bad for Your Skin?
As with any beauty treatment, there are minimal side effects after an eyebrow threading service. Although generally, the service isn’t painful, you can expect minor side effects which may include the following:
This is caused by the removal of the hair itself and is a temporary side effect that naturally fades within a few hours, if not minutes.
This is caused by the sensation of the thread removing hair and can be experienced in the form of watery eyes or a sneeze. This sensitivity is also temporary and naturally fades by the time the threading service is over.
Tips To Take Care of Eyebrows After Threading
Since threading can cause minimal redness and slight skin irritation, it’s recommended to take extra care of your skin immediately and in the days following your threading session. Here are some eyebrow threading aftercare tips you should consider to treat your skin after threading:
Use ice on the threaded area to soothe any puffiness or redness. You can apply ice or any other cold compress immediately after your threading service, and before any of the eyebrow threading aftercare advice below.
Rose Water Spritz
Spritz your face or treated area with rose water. Since rose water has anti-inflammatory properties, it can help reduce the redness of irritated skin. You can use the spritz throughout the day until your skin is no longer red or sensitive.
Aloe Vera Cream
A vital step in our Ziba Beauty threading service includes the application of cooling gel to the threaded skin. This gel includes aloe vera, which helps reduce inflammation and redness. At home, you can continue to apply an aloe vera cream to soothe your skin.
Tea Tree Oil
Part of our suggested skincare tips after threading also includes tea tree oil. If you prefer oils over creams or face spritz, this may be the better alternative for you since tea tree oil also reduces inflammation to encourage skin healing, but in an oil base.
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.
Proper exfoliation is necessary in a beauty routine in order to remove dead skin cells clogging the skin and uncover fresh new cells below. However, we highly suggest you not exfoliate at least 24 hours after your threading service, to avoid any unnecessary irritation.
Avoid the Sun
Many people experience sun rashes naturally, which results in a red, itchy rash when exposed to too much sunlight. Therefore, we suggest you not increase your chances of further irritating your skin by avoiding direct sunlight altogether.
If you do not typically use sunscreen as part of your daily beauty routine, we suggest you begin to incorporate one with least SPF 30– especially in the days post your threading service. This will add a layer of protection against harmful UV rays that could add irritation to your skin.
