An epilator works by plucking the hair out of its follicle - it's similar to tweezing although much faster. Epilators will remove hair relatively quickly because they have a row of rotating tweezers, although a few use virbrating wire coils. As you run the epilator over your skin, make sure you pull the skin tight as this prevents snagging and makes the hair removal treatment more comfortable. You may also find it works best after you've had a hot bath or shower and then dried off.
Many models come with different attachments making all over hair removal simple. Some models are also wet/dry and can be used in the shower. If you like the long lasting results of epilation hair removal, but without the discomfort that some people feel, then you make also like Long Term Hair Removal.
