Yes. I have done the exact same thing! The more you pluck, the less uncomfortable it is. The nerve at the base of the hair gets less and less sensitive over time. There are areas that I can pull out in clumps, and some that I do one by one. If the hair is long enough, I don’t even need the tweezers. I don’t try to do it all at once. The skin is baby smooth, and stays that way for quite awhile.
