How long does epilation last versus wax?
Which hair removal method fits best to you?

There are many methods to choose from when it comes to hair removal and every person is different. You simply have to decide which method fits into your lifestyle best. You also need to take into consideration how much time you have to dedicate to your hair removal routine.

Epilation is a root-hair removal, so like wax it gives you long-lasting results.

Both methods last up to 4 weeks, but epilation can be more convenient because you don’t need to wait for your hair to re-grow. If you wax, you have the wait for hair to grow long enough, which can means several days of hairy legs. With epilation, you can remove hair up to 4 times shorter than wax.

What are the pros
of epilating vs. waxing?

With an epilator you can remove hair as small as a grain of sand (0.5 mm) so therefore epilation works effectively, with minimal hair growth. Epilation also fits into a busy lifestyle more easily because it’s easy to use at home and the results last up to 4 weeks. It’s long-lasting, like wax, but without the hassle and inconvenience of trying to wax at home or waiting for the salon. The best thing is that you don’t have to wait around for results or wait for the hair to grow to keep your skin smooth and hair-free again.

How can I get smooth skin at home?

Getting smooth skin is easy at home with the full range of devices now available. The secret to smooth, glowing skin is regular exfoliation, and it’s recommended to exfoliate regularly both before and after epilation. Some epilators, like the Braun SkinSpa series, also come with exfoliation brushes and facial cleansing brushes for a complete at home beauty regimen.
