Still swollen after getting eyebrows done??

Ill start off by saying my skin is SUPER sensitive and i havent got threaded in almost 3 years. I pretty much just trimmed or plucked here and there. Nothing much and nothing too rough. So friday i went to get my eyebrows and top lip threaded and it was so much more painful this time around because of how sensitive my skin has gotten from years of not doing it anymore. When i got out my top lip and eyebrows were so pink and puffy. Yesterday it went down a little but you could still see my eyebrows a little puffy and pink. Now today is sunday, its been two days now and its still a little puffy. I have some pink puffy blotches on my top lip and eyebrow area. Now i know my skin isnt used to it anymore so i knew it would be sensitive but how long before this puffiness goes down? It makes my eyebrows look awful.

Didn't your mother warn you that if you kept making a face it would get stuck like that? And you thought she was pulling your leg.

Why not just do it yourself??? Not the threading, but taking care of your eyebrows and lip yourself. Do-it-yourself wax strips are sooooo easy.

(but then again, I dont understand why people dont do their own brows, paint their own nails, etc)

Ibuprofen. Before getting it done.


Prevents my skin from swelling, hope it helps you.

Did they put antiseptic stuff on after? Maybe that's the cause and not the threading itself.

When I get it done it's usually swollen for 2 to 3 days then goes away.

I totally forgot how long the swelling can last since i havent done this in years. I think mine will last a couple of days as well. I just looked and they seem a little better compared to this morning but still a little puffy. It will probally go down completely as the week passes.

I would apply ice and an antibacterial oinment for the swelling.
