Is it pimples or a rash?

Until my skin got used to waxing, and it took about 2 years of “regular” waxing (about once per month), I would have to use hydrocortisone cream on it for a few days post-wax, due to the itchy rash (small) it would cause.

If yours is pimples can you wash your face immediately after the wax?  And if this isn’t feasible, carry a small bottle of toner and some facepads in your purse and kind of run it over the area.  It may not be due to the waxing/threading, but due to whatever they use on your skin before and/or after.  I’d also speak to them about using something for sensitive/oily skin if they have it.

I don’t know what threading is, but after waxing or plucking my eyebrows the same thing happens to me.  I found out that if I wash my face afterwards and apply my face lotion after drying my face, it helps a ton.

Yeah, after waxing you’re not supposed to apply anything to the skin right away. Try not to touch the area, nor apply make-up or lotions. Try dabbing the area with a cotton pad, soaked with witch hazel. It’s soothing and anti-bacterial. A life saver.

I have the same problem. The only thing that seems to work for me is right before they thread/wax remind them to always use baby powder on the area first!

Oh that used to happen to me too when I got my eyebrows threaded but now I wash my face before I go, have them use baby powder and then wash my face afterwards.
