Does it work well on the face? Does it hurt? And how long are the results likely to last for? I normally have lip and chin wax done, but was thinking about doing something about hair on the sides of my face, which I hate, but don't really want to wax.

I'm just in the door from having my eyebrows and upper lip threaded. I love it! It is perfect for the face and not hard on your skin like waxing. I don't get the irritation I can get from waxing - haven't had a spot/irritation/ingrown hair as I would get occasionally from waxing. I don't find it uncomfortable but am used to it. Like waxing would depend on pain threshold and hairiness.

Waxing and threading both remove the hair from the root so should last the same amount of time.

You should defo give it a whirl.

Thanks! Sounds like it's worth a try.

Yes much better than waxing.. I have my eyebrows n upperlip threaded and my re growth takes about 3-4 weeks.
