Epilator Vs Other hair Removal Techniques –
Epilator is one hand-held device that has rotating tweezers attached to its head. When it moves on the skin, surface hairs are trapped either in a rotating head of its tiny tweezers or in the coiled spring. You can choose varying rotation speeds. It may have a separate electric razor to apply on sensitive body parts where tweezing is painful. Some also have a cool ice-pack that can be attached to avoid red skin after the epilating process. New models are available which are specially meant for face. This gadget is suitable for all body parts like legs, arms, underarms, bikini area and face. And the result is ultra smooth skin within half an hour. Let’s compare the other most common ways of hair removal.
Waxing is believed to be the oldest technique where hot or cold wax is directly applied on the skin. Once solidified, cotton strips are pressed against it and pulled out quick that snatches out all the hairs on that part. The method is a bit painful. Moreover, you need to wait till hairs are long enough to apply waxing again or you may miss the very short hairs. Doing it at home is inconvenient.
Threading is all about twining a fine cotton thread around the hairs to pull them out. Only single or a small bunch of hair can be removed at once. Hairs are taken out from the root, so re-growth becomes slow, but it’s a time-consuming process. Only well-trained professional can perform the threading method.
Depilatory Creams are available that chemically dissolves the unwanted hair. They are pain-free and inexpensive. But most of them come with an unpleasant smell. After long use it can lead to skin irritation or black patches.
