Brow Threading And Brow Waxing Aftercare
We’re all different and so is our skin!
Some of our brow areas may require a little more attention than others after our brow threading or brow waxing appointment. As important as it is to make sure your brows are properly cared for before you come and see us, it’s just as important to look after them afterwards. Following the correct procedures will result in you achieving the perfect look for your brows every time!
Neither brow threading or waxing usually results in any severe adverse reactions, however, if you do experience any swelling or redness along the brow area shortly afterwards, don’t worry — it’s completely normal. Probably more likely after waxing than threading, swelling or skin irritation is usually nothing to be concerned about. If you see slight reddening of the brow area or the appearance of little red raised spots, they’ll often just resolve themselves.
It can take anywhere from between 30 minutes to a few hours for these spots and swelling to settle. If you want to speed up the process, though, there are a few simple tricks you can try at home.
Ice Cubes on My Brows After Waxing
Lightly apply a clean ice cube or gel ice pack to the affected area for short periods at a time.
Any sort of cold material will encourage the blood vessels in the affected area to constrict, decreasing circulation. This will help with redness and swelling and can be used in conjunction with the other methods mentioned below.
Grapeseed Oil For Swollen Brows
Containing plenty of Vitamin E, beta-carotene and many other healing compounds, grapeseed oil is a byproduct of the winemaking process. Simply massage a very small amount of the oil into the swollen area, being careful not to put too much pressure on the bumps or aggravating the skin any further. The oil will act to hydrate the area and help with inflammation.
Tea Tree Oil On Red Eyebrows
While not everyone’s a fan of the strong scent, tea tree oil (also known as melaleuca oil) has a range of medicinal uses. Anti-bacterial, antifungal and antioxidant rich, this essential oil is made by steaming the leaves of the Australian tea tree. Much like the grapeseed oil, lightly apply a small amount of the tea tree oil to the affected area to encourage skin regeneration.
Aloe Vera To Soothe Brows
Either as a gel, cream or in its raw plant form, most of us are familiar with the soothing properties of this succulent species. The aloe vera plant naturally contains anti-inflammatory compounds called anthraquinones. When applied to your skin, they promote healing and can reduce the effects of swelling and skin irritation. It’s best to keep any aloe vera products in the fridge or a cold storage place in order to appreciate their full, cool, soothing effects on your skin.
Topical Moisturisers After Brow Threading
The secret to reducing redness and swelling is in hydration. There are a range of over-the-counter moisturising products that are suitable for this application. It’s important, however, not to use any products that contain any alcohols or strong chemical scenting components. These can actually cause more irritation to the area and will only delay the healing process.
