Short answer.. it can. The more you do it, the less hair there is to grab thus the easier it gets! Our Estheticians do our best to ease any nerves you may have and distract you during the service.

Day of: Avoid direct sun exposure or forms of tanning for 24 hours after waxing. Wear cotton fabrics to avoid further irritation.
