All methods suffer the disadvantage that they can be painful. With waxing and threading the whole hair including the root may be removed which can have the potential for infection. Hair regrowth after waxing and threading can also be very irritating.

And this site the same for waxing of which one of the main disadvantages seems to be ingrown hairs, red bumps, and minor bleeding.


And finally the same for threading.
