If you are female, you’ve probably had your eyebrows done more than once. If you are male, and you have unruly eyebrows, you’ve probably had your eyebrows done as well. Having your eyebrows done entails waxing, laser hair removal, plucking, or eyebrow threading. Waxing and Eyebrow Threading effects last longer than others, and are the preferred methods. Is eyebrow waxing safer than eyebrow threading?
The Advantages and Disadvantages of Eyebrow Waxing
With eyebrow waxing, there are advantages and disadvantages. Some people believe that waxing causes more pain than threading, and because chemicals are not used, skin irritation isn’t as likely. There is also a danger of using hot wax on the skin, near the eye, and eyebrow waxing doesn’t give you the precision in shaping the eyebrow that threading does. When you have your eyebrows waxed, the skin on and around the brow remains red for several hours – and for some people, several days.
With that said, there are advantages. Waxing is typically faster and cheaper. Unfortunately, that is the only advantage, and if you must determine whether one method is safer than the other, eyebrow threading is actually safer than eyebrow waxing.
The Advantages and Disadvantages of Eyebrow Threading
In the disadvantages of eyebrow waxing, you will find the advantages of eyebrow threading. However, skin irritation is still possible, although unlikely. There is no danger of burning the skin, and you do not remove the top layer of skin with threading as you will with eyebrow waxing.
Threading is absolutely natural, because 100% cotton thread is used, and white thread is used so that the thread isn’t dyed in most cases. While waxing can cause acne breakouts, threading does not. Where wax being jerked off can cause the skin to wrinkle and sag, threading doesn’t cause this. There is also no redness that occurs with eyebrow threading.
Eyebrow Waxing vs. Eyebrow Threading – The Preferred Method
In the end, you have to determine which method of hair removal is right for you. If you want clearly defined brows, threading is the way to go. If you want less danger involved, threading is safer. If you want speed, and you are trying to save money as well, eyebrow waxing will most likely be your preferred method of brow hair removal despite the discomfort and danger involved. If you are unsure as to which method is the right method for you, go with eyebrow threading, since it is safer. If you still aren’t sure, give both a try, as the hair removal in either case is temporary.
