What Are Your Options If You Have Low Pain Tolerance?
"Waxing can be uncomfortable, especially for those with low pain tolerance," said Petak. "However, since waxing removes the hair from the root, it makes it grow in softer and finer, resulting in each wax becoming less painful and more comfortable." Everyone is different, but waxing your legs is by no means unbearable. Think of it this way: once you make it through your first appointment, it only gets easier.
"Additionally, a high-quality wax can help make the experience more comfortable," Petak said. Talk to your salon before your appointment if you want to know what type of wax they use and discuss your options.
