Epilators are hair removal gadget that removes hair from the root. There are other forms of epilation, like tweezing, sugaring, waxing, and threading. You can also purchase epilator devices which use rotating, tweezer-like heads to remove hair.
Advantages of Using Epilators
No single hair removal technique is best for every person, or even for every type of hair, but there are a number of advantages to using an epilator.
Using an epilator device is not a messy process. Even though some epilators can be used in the shower, but most epilator device does not require water or shaving cream, and there is no residue left on the skin afterward.
Epilators are designed for household use and do not require a journey to the salon. Epilators are small enough to fit in a suitcase and take with you when traveling. Though some special epilators may produce better results on the underarms and bikini area.
Epilation Provides Lasting Smoothness
It has been proving that epilators remove hair from the root, giving lasting result than shaving. It takes between 14-18 days for significant hair regrowth to occur and require additional treatment. Plus epilators can generally remove shorter hairs than other epilating methods.
For example, in using wax, hair must reach a certain length before it can be removed. With continuous epilator use, the hair follicles become damaged, leading to regrowth that is finer. In some cases, it can cause the death of the hair follicle, with no hair regrowth at all.
Epilation is not Just for Your Legs
Most epilators are available with different attachments, depending on which model you choose. These attachments are specially designed to give you superior results for different body parts.
Epilation is Great for Sensitive Skin
Epilating in the bath is the current hair removal solution for modern women the world over. It is perfectly suited for sensitive skin and those new to epilating.
As the tweezers on an epilation head do not pull the skin directly when removing hair, there is a slight effect on the skin. Epilation is a great choice for cold or dry seasons, when daily hair removal may irritate your skin.
Epilation Helps Hair Grow Back Less Noticeably
In using an epilation, hairs are removed at the root, and these hairs grow back with softer, narrower tips than hairs removed with a razor, making the hair feel softer and finer to the touch.
Secondly, as hair grows back at different speeds depending on the phase of the hair growth cycle they are in, there is also less hair to be removed after the first few sessions.
Epilation is Gentle to the Skin
Braun Silk-épil Xpressive (a notable type of epilator) features different ways to help women minimize discomfort. Its wet usage system makes epilation extra kind to the skin. It has massaging rollers that stimulate the skin before and soothes it after epilation, and also pre-epilation wipes that reduce pain.
According to a research carried out by some dermatologists, it was proven that wet epilation provides considerable advantages, More than half of the women who tested the product in water experienced no pain or little pain.
Epilation can be More Efficient than Waxing
While both waxing and epilation remove hairs from the root, waxing can push hairs flat against the skin, making the hairs harder to lift and remove.
While some epilation devices (especially from Silk-épil Xpressive) features a patented ‘Hair-Lift’ system that lifts, loosens and gently removes hair (even short or flat-lying hairs.) In fact, the Silk-épil Xpressive removes up to 7 times more short hairs (0.5mm) than waxing.
