eyebrow threading has little to no contact with the skin, it does not irritate the skin for more than a few minutes. In contrast to that, waxing pulls the skin when the hair is removed. This can easily make the sensitive skin go pink and red with skin irritation.
While both these methods are quite
painful, the waxing method is easily the most painful one, as most of the waxes used are warm and can end up burning or scorching the skin at times. Another reason is that the molten wax around your eyes can be a cause for concern.
The chemicals present in the wax might irritate the sensitive, thin skin around the eyes. The resins and the artificial ingredients in the wax can trigger off an allergic reaction and rashes as well. In addition to this the top layers of the skin that are traumatized by waxing can develop redness and pigmentation. On the long run
eyebrow waxing can result in skin loosening and the appearance of wrinkles between the brows.
Threading gives you the
perfect and the most accurate eyebrow shape with cleaner, straighter lines. It is also a quicker method of hair removal as compared to eyebrow waxing and ensures that the hair is removed from the follicle. Moreover, once the hair grows back you do not have to deal with the thick dark hair that is usually observed a few days after an eyebrow waxing session.
Eyebrow threading is a slightly expensive option as compared to waxing. While eyebrow threading can set you back by $12, waxing your brows can cost somewhere around $7, so it does not pinch your pocket too much.
In addition to these comparisons between eyebrow threading vs waxing, it is also observed that threading eyebrows has long lasting results than any other hair removal techniques. Whatever method you choose, it is best to get it done by an experienced professional as wrong usage of any of the above methods can lead to uneven brows, hair breakage, ingrown hair and a whole lot unnecessary pain.
