Tks Elizabeth for ur info!!! But if ur face already has outbreak, is it still ok to go for threading? Will it worsen the situation?



I am sorry, Trish I am not sure if you still can do threading if you have got outbreak?

Better not, you can cause an infection and the outbreak can just worsen. Always apply creams, masks, even threading only when your face is clear. :)

Yes, best is after threading apply some tone. I did not apply for the first time and i think that is why i got outbreak. But the next time I do it again, I will apply some tone after that.

Actually if you have sensitive skin and have a outbreak, its wise not to do facial threading,as it will aggravate the condition, some actually do facial threading and end up getting rashes.


Well, you may try it once to see if it suits your skin or not... however , if you have little facial hair,..might as well bleach it right ...

cheers

i only tried plucking before, and i only had once that outbreak occurs.

If i go for face threading, will the hair grow very quickly and more obvious or thicker that it initially was?

No, if you do threading, your facial hair won't grow thicker, as for how fast your facial hair grow got to depend as well as the outbreak..

For my case, i went with my friend i got outbreak but my friend dont at all.. But her facial hair seem to grow faster than mine.

Hi guys ! :) I've done eyebrow threading .. it's not that painful . upper lip threading is sooo painful :( Anywayz, in Little India, there's this saloon called Vanessa Beauty Saloon .. the ladies there are really nice and it's always not crowded .. look for the boss, Elizabeth , she will advise u on the correct shape for ur brows .. and stuff .. they charge normal $5 for eyebrows .. and she does it well .. :)

threading vs waxing

Postby cleopatra » Mon, 15 May 2006 5:15 pm

hi all..

when talking about facial threading u guys mean the whole face right? i tried it once.. hurts like hell.. but the result was so worth it :D

recently i went to get my face threaded again but the lady suggested waxing instead saying its better. apparently if u do threading, the areas that have been threaded would swell.. true or not? anyway i did try the waxing instead (except forehead n eyebrows have to be waxed otherwise if the wax gets to the brows, they'd be gone!) and yep it hurt soooooo much when the yanking was done. but i have to say the effect was much better than threading. my face feels smoother even. maybe my blackheads and all were pulled out to.. hahaha.. :lol:
