Epilator Is Better Than Shaving – Here’s Why

Oct 10, 2015 by

painEvery time you have to remove hair, you sigh. Is it already that time again? Each method seems to come with its own consequences, messes, pain, suffering, and intervals between treatments.

The old shaver routine may require a few visits per week, especially if you have been at it for years. The more you do it, the darker and more frequently the hairs grow back.

A disposable razor only works so many times before becoming dull and tugging at hair. Laser hair treatments require you to look like you never bother with your hair because you have to grow it way long. The pain of lasers is real, and all people are not impressed with the results or the cost.

At home, lasers have gained in popularity, but if you have thick and dark hair or have gone gray, it may not work for you. It’s a lot of effort and money to buy a few hundred dollars “miracle laser” that makes you return to shaving in a couple of years. Besides, you have to shave before the biweekly laser routine, so the extra work may not be worth it.

The electric shaver is a buzz kill. It leaves behind dead skin, and it requires more frequent shearing. Some do not do a great job and cause more than their fair share of razor burn and bumps.

Benefits Of The Epilator

You are putting all of the pieces together and realizing one truth. You will have to do hair removal for your entire life. Making the smooth, hairless portion of the removal last as long as possible is the goal. Being able to do the removal at home without time-wasting appointments, and added cost are another benefit you would like to realize.

Enter the epilator. Epilators are a fairly inexpensive device, costing anywhere from $45 to $100 or more. Here is the part where you will want to sit down after taking a few aspirin. Epilators pull the hair out with a set of multiple tweezers. Read more on how epilators work so that you can see how they can improve your life.

The payoff is great. Enjoy a longer time between epilation. Even after up to three weeks, you may not have to do any hair removal. The skin will have a nice, smooth appearance and feel as well. Plus you have the added benefit of not doing too much hair removal too often, which would encourage darker hair re-growth at a faster rate. We all know that’s not what you want.

Weaker And Weaker

Time and again, as you go through the epilation process, the hairs become thinner and weaker. Some hairs may not even grow back after a period of time. If you are still wondering about the pain, it is not much worse than shaving.

timeIt will require more of a time commitment. It is best to think of it as an investment of your time, because, after many treatments, your hair will weaken possibly to the point of never needing hair removal again.

The main idea of buying an epilator is to find one that is high quality. The higher quality varieties pull the hair out from the root and are more efficient. Cheaper epilators will leave stubble because they only clip the hair, like a lawn mower or shaver.

Epilation is low maintenance because you do not have to do it often. When you do need to do it, you do not have to do any special preparation. Even shaving requires you to wet your legs to soften the hairs, etc. With epilation, you just go for it.

You might notice some bumps showing up from the process though they generally disappear within 12-24 hours. You may want to use a balm or lotion after the treatment, but it is not necessary.

Epilators are money and time well spent. What other hair removal method is this inexpensive and lowers your time investment the longer you use it? None.
