Here at The Skin & Body Spa, we’re a beautiful spa and waxing salon in Nashua, NH where you can come and relax from life’s stresses. We hear a lot of myths surrounding waxing and while we understand that your first time waxed can be scary, we don’t want you to miss the opportunity because of false information! Today we’re going to give you some reassurance by debunking some of the biggest misconceptions surrounding waxing.

  • You must let your hair grow to a half inch before waxing. While you may have heard that you have to let your legs or arms turn into Bigfoot before seeing us, that’s simply not true! We can pull hair that’s 1/8 to 1/4 of an inch – we promise you’ll be the only person that will notice that length of hair growth!
  • If you wax your hair, it will come back thicker and coarser. This could not be any further from the truth. In fact, a good waxing regimen like ours can make your hair grow back more sparsely and even less coarsely. The idea of hair growing back thicker after removal is only true when it comes to shaving, because shaving only removes it to the skin, so it all comes growing back at once!
  • You can get burned from waxing. While this is definitely possible when getting waxed by someone who is not trained, you won’t find that here at The Skin & Body Spa. Our employees are highly trained and are always 100% sure that the wax they use is the appropriate temperature to remove hair without causing discomfort to the client.
