Some people have more sensitivity than others after threading, but abiding by aftercare minimises this. Yana recommends applying "a light moisturiser to the area to keep the skin hydrated and soothe any redness that occurs during the treatment." In addition to this, avoid direct sunlight, swimming in chlorinated water, using saunas or applying make-up to the area as she says this will help to avoid further irritation. If you’re looking for a soft, natural-looking brow, threading isn’t going to be your jam. But if you want sharp, clean lines, it’s hard to do better. A skilled threader can remove hairs individually or in lines and may even use scissors to ensure the shape is just right. Time between procedures Tweezing your eyebrows at home can be time-consuming — and in some cases, painful — but it’s also affordable. As with waxing and other procedures performed by a specialist, threading costs money. The price can vary considerably based on where you live and how often you go. Side effects According to Dr. Ranasinghe, how often you get threaded is a question of your personal preference and your hair growth rate.

And at-home brow threading can have consequences more painful than potentially ruining your brow shape. “It can be slightly dangerous to your skin,” adds Kayla Weiss, cosmetologist and co-owner of Los Angeles’ Thread Eyebrows. “When threading is done properly, the skin must be properly stretched to keep the brow bone tight. This prevents cutting your skin.” Since only the hair is getting yanked—and skin isn't an incidental casualty—there's very little chance of irritation. "There's no pulling or straining your skin," says Feroz. Threading is also easier on sensitive and acne-prone skin, so if waxing tends to leave your brows raw or red for longer than you're comfortable with, you might find eyebrow threading to be less intensive. ...But It's Still Not a Spa Day Yana likes to recommend the Nouveau Lashes Lash & Brow Conditioning Serum post-treatment for conditioning to clients, as well as the HD Brows Brow Glue to set brows in place. Threading maintenance Just like every other form of facial hair removal, beforecare and aftercare is really important for minimizing pain and preventing (or managing) side effects. Before your threading appointment Yana explains that everyone is a great candidate for threading, especially those who struggle with waxing or post-wax breakouts. Many practitioners recommend threading over waxing for those with acne, too.

It's a Quick Process

Although threading doesn’t hurt, the sensation is a little odd (similar to using an elastic band on your skin), which some people might not particularly like.

It’s important to avoid retinoid and retinol-based products five to seven days before threading. These products are both vitamin A derivatives — retinoids are more potent than retinols — that makes the skin very sensitive,” Dr. Ranasinghe says. The most common side effects are skin bleeding or peeling.

Unlike traditional eyebrow waxing that uses warm wax and special fabric strips for removal, threading only requires a cotton thread. This may be favorable for those who are sensitive to certain chemicals used in wax, or the escalated friction that comes with ripping wax and hair off near the eyes. We don’t know how eyebrow threading originated — the best guess is present-day India or Iran. Wherever it started, the technique spread throughout Asia and the Middle East, where it’s been a dominant facial hair removal technique for thousands of years.

Although eyebrow threading is a popular and generally safe cosmetic procedure, it does have certain risks for the skin such as irritation, infection and hyperpigmentation. Weiss cautions that most YouTube tutorials you might watch “are being done by professionals,” and that threading is more difficult than it might look on screen—though online isn't a bad place to start. “Find a good quality tutorial video and practice on your upper thigh area before touching your face,” says the cosmetologist. “Practicing on your leg is a classic technique I have all my students try before moving to the face. This is the best way to get a feel for how you will be rolling the thread and removing hair.” Skin around the eyes is sensitive in nature, which is why complications such as irritation after a threading procedure are so common. However, more severe conditions such as infections and allergic reactions can occur in some people. Threading is one of the oldest forms of hair removal, and like many ancient techniques, it can take a ton of training and practice to get it right,” explains Bailey. “There are many ways to safely shape your brows at home without compromising your overall shape and long-term health of your brows… threading is not one of those ways.”Keep your operation above and around your brow. “Underneath your brow bone is so delicate, I wouldn't thread there on your own. You can potentially cut your skin, create a hole in the brow, or even worse, pull out an eyelash,” adds Weiss. Ouch.

Everyone’s pain tolerance is different. Some report that threading is unpleasant, while others don’t mind the hassle of the pulling and tugging that comes with it. Some reactions can develop due to sensitive skin, while others may be a result of unsanitary conditions during your eyebrow threading session. It’s important to take note of the cleanliness and professionalism of the environment where you plan to receive your service before sitting down (and if anything makes you uncomfortable, it’s OK to leave without going through with it). Like all cosmetic procedures, there are certain pros and cons of eyebrow threading. From cost to the upkeep of your eyebrows, here are some things to consider before scheduling an appointment.
