Famously, epilation and waxing are two of the most effective forms of hair removal, but is an epilator better than waxing? First, let’s compare methods.
For traditional waxing, you won’t need any kind of electrical device. Hair is pulled out using soft or hard wax, which is applied to the skin. If soft wax is used, strips of cloth are placed on top of the wax, adhering to the hair underneath. In a quick motion, the strips of cloth are ripped away from the skin, pulling out the hairs in the process. Hard wax is pulled away from the skin just as quickly, but without the need for strips of cloth.
The main difference between epilation and waxing is that you need to wait longer between waxing sessions than you do between the times when you epilate, as the hair needs to grow to a longer length before it can be pulled out effectively with wax. This is one of the significant benefits of epilating; epilating uses mechanical tweezers to extract even the shortest of hairs from the root. The device is moved slowly at a 90-degree angle against the direction of hair growth. The Satinelle Advanced Wet & Dry epilator gathers hair by firmly grabbing and pulling hairs from the root. Its unique ceramic head grips even the finest of hairs, epilating closer to the skin for a gentler experience. Unlike waxing, the epilator protects surface-level skin cells.
