I was wondering if you can treat hair around the breast/nipple area? Also does this hurt? and will it affect the sensitivity around that area in the future?


Yes, we can successfully reduce hair in the breast or nipple area. There is only mild discomfort, that is usually not worse than doing other areas.  It works particularly well on dark and coarse nipple hairs. There is no effect on sensitivity of that area.
