Facial hair how to's

I never had like a really bad case of facial hair, even though it's quite dark and therefore visible. Most of the time I'd get my brows and forehead threaded (above lips area on occasion). But once I tried threading my whole face it kinda change my life - both positively and negatively. My skin was another level of smoothness, my face looked cleaner and I loved that my esthetician cleaned up my sideburns too. Ont the other hand, boy, was my skin irritated! They put Aloe Vera soothing gel on my face right after threading but I still experienced hundreds of small bumps all over my face in parts I never had them before. By the time I managed to calm that down, the hair grew out again lol So my questions are: 1. Is face waxing a better option of facial hair removal? How about dermaplanning and depilatory creams? It was actually hard to find these small facial razors where I live. 2. Is there any way to completely avoid irritation and small bumps in case of threading? Like a to-do list for before and after the procedure. I tried searching on Picky app and on the internet but somehow most people are interested in dermaplanning and it looks like hardly anyone gets anything threaded anymore haha 😄 So I'd really appreciate it if you shared your tips and experience ❤️

I've had both full face threading & waxing done. As much as I liked how smooth my skin felt initially, I couldn't deal with the irritation my skin experienced. A few years ago, I got an IPL package & I've been happy with the results! It's important to maintain a soothing, moisturizing routine for a few days after threading/waxing/dermaplaning/IPL.
