I think that threading is better is you are using topical acne med. Nothing actually touches your skin so it is less likely to be irritated. I had a friend who was using BP have a bunch of her skin peel off when she waxed.

I think that it is really hard to find a person who does threading. When I was in Chicago I just took it for granted, but now I live in MN and people looked at me like I was crazy when I asked about threading at the local salon.

whatever you do, do not wax your facial hair. that's one of the WORST things i have ever done in my life... broke out like crazy... not even worth it.

i had this same uncertainty but i decided against both methods because i heard that a loss of facial hair will cause pimples.

what i do is bleach my facial hair and it works amazing! i use the Jolen bleaching cream which is very easy to apply
