Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of epilation vs. other methods? 

With epilation, you can enjoy smooth skin that lasts up to 4 weeks. Unlike other hair removal methods, such as razors and shaving creams, epilation removes even the finest, shortest hairs from the root which then take 4-6 weeks to grow back. Additionally, with epilators you can remove hair 4x shorter than wax so you don’t have to wait for the hair to be completely visible. 

Moreover, you can use epilators across all of your body parts – underarms, bikini line, face, arms and legs all in the comfort of your own home.

I have never epilated before – is epilation painful?

Silk-epil epilators have been especially developed to minimize any discomfort and irritation, making them the perfect choice for first-time users. Their active massage rollers softly stimulate the skin with micro-pulsations before and after removing the hair, leaving your skin more relaxed. 

Being able to use the product in water and on wet skin is especially gentle as the warm water improves your micro-circulation, stimulates the production of pain-reducing substances and reduces skin sensitivity helping to relax and sooth the skin, reducing any slight discomfort and skin irritation. This was confirmed by a study conducted by the German dermatologist Dr. med. Petra Staubach at the University of Mainz, where the majority of participants felt no or only a slight tugging sensation when using the epilator in wet conditions.

If you are inexperienced, you may still feel a little discomfort during your first epilating sessions. With regular use, epilation will become virtually painless as the skin adjusts to the process and the individual hairs grow back at different speeds, so that there is less hair to remove after the first epilation.

Will more hair grow back if I epilate?

No, this has been proven in dermatological tests. In fact, studies show that ongoing epilation reduces the amount of hair re-growth, making them lighter, softer and fine, with a semi-permanent effect. Say goodbye to stubble that’s rough and hard and hello to 4 weeks of smoothness.
