How do Epilators work?

They work by scraping hair all the way down to the follicle, causing permanent and long-term hair loss. An electronic device that removes hairs from the follicle in a tweezer-like motion, normally driven by a charged battery pack. Hair may be removed from any part of the body, including the thighs, armpits, bikini line, and arms. There are particular models especially used for facial hair removal also.

Do Epilators Hurt?

Of course, every pleasure comes with a price! And you’ll have to put up with a certain amount of discomfort before you get used to it. Having said that, women all over the world obviously believe the suffering is well worth it and that it is quickly forgotten.

Let’s root out the best ones!

10 Best Epilators for Men and Women

  1. Braun Silk-épil 9

What we think:

When compared to the Silk-épil 7, the Silk-épil 9 has a 40 percent wider epilation head, which means you can cover a greater region in less time. One of the key reasons and for price rise is because of this.

The tweezer device uses microgrip technology to hold the hairs firmly and remove them completely.It also has a very low reach, pulling hairs that are often missed in shaving or waxing treatments. Unlike the Satinelle this model can be used in the wet and dry alike. Although newer Phillips models also carry this capability.

What you think:

My first made me sweat and even sob, but the three weeks of hairlessness that followed were well worth it. I have coarse, dense hair that I’ve waxed on and off for the past 25 years. But I’ve changed my mind, and I now adore the inane torture system. It really does catch tiny hairs; after two days of development, I was able to epilate on hairs. Be cautious! Your first session can make you feel ecstatic, but each subsequent session gets easier and easier. It’s as though the hairs sense what’s about to happen and give up. If you’re a waxer, you should have this little friend instead.

Key Features

  • Wider Epilating Head than the Silk 7
  • Microgrip Tweezers 
  • Wet and Dry Capability 


  1. Panasonic Epilator ES-ED90

What we think:

It costs a little more than normal, but it comes with a lot of extras. It has a wide number of attachments and can be used wet or dry. There are six in all, including a pedicure buffer, razor, and various epilating heads of various sizes. The hypo-allergenic blades are ideal for extracting hairs from sensitive areas and are a nice feature for those with sensitive skin. The pop-up tray collects any longer length hairs that are removed, saving a clear up job.

What you think:

This epilator is fantastic! Years earlier, I tried epilating before switching to waxing and laser hair removal. However, waxing was costly, as were lasers. I did some research and decided to give this Panasonic a try, and I really like it. You can use it everywhere, and I do, even to keep my Brazilian. I like how it has a larger epilating head and a smaller one for when you’re in a tight spot, haha.I love that it’s easily cleaned by putting a drop of liquid soap and turning it on under the faucet, it causes it to foam and cleans the heads. Great product!


Key Features

  • 6 Attachments
  • Pedicure Buffer
  • Suitable for Sensitive Skin


  1. Emjoi Ap-18 Epilator


What we think:

Emjoi’s best-selling item is a brilliant choice that has won the Amazon Choice award. Due to a high number of transactions combined with an almost high level of positive user response. It has a staggered head system that helps to prevent ingrowing hairs and can extract hairs as short as 0.5mm.

The head has 72 tweezers built into it, which can remove more hair in the target area than most other brands. Silver Ion technology is one of our favorite features. This essentially means that there is a protective property in place to avoid infection, which can occur on delicate skin if it is not properly cared for during treatment.

What you think:

“Is it painful?” Yes, but each time you use it, the pain diminishes. Electrolysis, on the other hand, was the most painful. It’s well worth the money, and my skin has never looked better. I like that there are no batteries to charge and that I can go two weeks without having to do a session, and that the hairs are staying away longer. I’d tell all of my friends and family about

Key Features

  • Anti-Infection Technology
  • 72 Tweezer Epilating Head
  • Corded Power


  1. Emjoi eRase e60

What we think:

A corded epilator with a lot of cool features and a stunning build. The dual heads are positioned opposite each other to automatically tauten the skin during your session, saving you time and effort with your hands. The head contains 60 tweezers divided into two compartments with a smooth lining that glides over the skin without causing discomfort.

Of course, this is more difficult to do on delicate skin, but it does help to keep the movements smoother during the treatments. It can be used on both the face and the body, but I think a small target zone for contoured areas of the face would be preferable..


What you think:

“I liked the way it looked (pink and mint) when it arrived, but I also liked how it performed. The small and lightweight nature makes it simple to use and clean. Things were a lot smoother and quicker with the dual head. I have sensitive skin and tend not to use the revolving head for detailed areas. I use it regularly on my underarm area and my arms and after months of use I can confidently give it a 5 stars!”

Key Features

  • Stable Corded Power
  • Dual Epilating Heads
  • Cuts Down to 0.3mm
  1. Braun Silk-épil 7

What we think:

As shown by the low number of ratings, the Brauns 7 model is one of the newer epilators on the market. However, you’ll note the extremely high score, indicating that it’s been well received so far. It can be used on both wet and dry skin, and it comes with a ton of extras.

This value kit includes up to 7 attachments and bonuses, including a shaver and a storage bag. A trimmer, as well as facial and skin contact caps, are included in the kit. The hair removal on this newer model is better than on previous models.

What you think:

“It’s fairly comfortable to use for extended periods of time, which is necessary because epilating requires a great deal of patience. It’s important to move slowly over the skin. It’s not possible to simply whizz over with a razor or electric shaver. To capture all, you must go slowly, take your time, and go over an area many times. While it is a time-consuming task, it has its advantages.For me, I like the results on my underarms and bikini area the most. Those areas get the smoothest and stay hair free for the longest.”

Key Features

  • Dry and Wet Choices
  • Free Cap Attachments 
  • Free Shaver and Pouch
  1. Philips Satinelle Epilator

What we think:

This lightweight epilator is a good option for at-home hair removal due to its high sales figures. This model will pull hairs down to 0.5mm at the lowest point, but it is best to take the hairs at 3-4mm. It’s simple to disassemble and clean when necessary, and it’s washable with tap water. Furthermore, with a corded power link, you will be able to enjoy unbroken sessions of torment, er, care! Two power settings can also assist you in attacking various areas of body thickness.

What you think:

I’m baby smooth all the time now, and it’s great for armpits, arms, and legs. It will get rid of pubic hair, but it will also cause a lot of pain. My S&M safe word is now “Satinelle” in honor of the pain it caused me.

Key Features

  • Best Seller
  • Corded Connection
  • Dual Power Settings
  1. Panasonic ES-ED70 

What we think:

This Panasonic epilator has a lot of attachments, which adds a lot of value. The 5 attachments are sized differently to deal with different parts of the body, such as bikini lines and sensitive or informative areas.

A travel pouch is included in the kit to hold all of the items together. A ‘gentle’ head attachment helps you to simply offer yourself a top-up without aggravating your skin, which is ideal for preserving smooth, hairless skin.

What you think:

“After doing some analysis, I decided to give the Panasonic a shot. I adore it and will apply it to every part of my body, including my brazilian. I use the larger epilating head for my legs and the smaller epilating head for tighter areas, haha. It’s easy to clean and can be left to air dry on the foot. It hurts a little in the sensitive places, but the gentle head helps to soften the blow.”

Key Features

  • Built-in LED Light
  • Wet and Dry Shaving Options
  • 100% Washable 
  1. Remington Smooth & Silky EP7030

What we think:

Remington offers a cordless and cost-effective alternative. This lightweight epilator has two speed settings for light and thick hair; beginners can start with the lower setting and work their way up to the higher as their pain tolerance improves.

The epilating head has over 40 tweezers, which ensures that the treatment zone is fully hair-free. It also comes with a few extra attachments, such as aloe vera and contoured skin massage and precision caps.

What you think:

“It’s not a bad commodity. I’ve used it both in the shower and on my dry skin. It was able to strip the majority of my incredibly dense, thick hair. It took me about 20 minutes to complete one leg, and the system was a little noisy, but I have no major complaints. It has a light on it, which is more useful than you would think. In general, you get what you pay for, and it works.”

Key Features

  • 40 Tweezer Head
  • Cordless and Compact 
  • Very Reasonably Priced
  1. Epilady Legend 

What we think:


This is a great choice with corded and cordless power options; the cordless has a charging time of 60 minutes, which is double that of the Panasonic above.

Given the charging time and the lightweight and compact construction, this allows the ideal travel epilator, with an ergonomic design and rubber side panels. It has compartments for each accessory and attachment and can be easily placed in the included carry case.

What you think:

“This system has totally transformed my grooming routine. There’s no sticky wax and no icky stubble right away. While it is somewhat fragile, do not drop it from a great height as the tweezer heads can be misplaced. The only drawback is that it can be very painful at first, particularly when used for the first time, but it does get better over time. It’s fantastic!”

Key Features

  • Ergonomic Design
  • Corded and Cordless Options
  • Free Travel Bag and Accessories 


Frequently Asked Questions

Let’s jump into some frequently asked questions often pondered before diving into the world of epilating.

Is it Painful to Use an Epilator?

Yes, indeed. Because of the process by which an epilator extracts hair, it may be painful. It draws the hair directly out of the follicle, similar to waxing.

As a result, determining how painful it is is dependent on the pain tolerance level. It can be a nerve-wracking experience for users with sensitive skin or others who are trying it out for the first time.

There are a few things you can do to make it easier for yourself, such as doing it after a hot bath, using a numbing cream, or taking pain relievers 30-60 minutes before your appointment.

Are Epilators Effective in Hair Removal?

They are extremely powerful, despite how frustrating they can be at times. The hairs can take a long time to regrow after the entire hair and root are removed from the follicle. After a decent session, you should be hair-free for at least a few weeks. They are also cost-effective, since they are much less expensive than IPL and Home Laser treatments.

Do Epilators Permanently Remove the Hair?

Although for most people they don’t result in a completely infinite bald area, what they can do is severely reduce the thickness of hairs after consistent use.

When the hairs eventually muster the nerve to grow back, only to face the wrath of the epilator’s tweezers once more, this makes it much easier to extract them. Another trick is to wax the hairs first, then epilate the regrowth; this is much less painful than steaming straight in with the epilator the first time.

Can You Use Epilators Underarms?

Absolutely, and you’ll notice a drop in dark areas under your armpits as a result of doing so. This is because it completely removes the hair rather than brushing it back, but the dark shadow will remain. To hold the shadow at bay, remain on top of it and epilate the regrowth as soon as it grows long enough.

Can You Use Epilators On The Face?

Yes, you can epilate facial hair the same way you can epilate every other part of your body. Only keep in mind that the skin on your face is more sensitive than the skin on your legs or back. For example, be on the lookout for potential redness or annoyance 24 hours later.

Most importantly, do not use this near your eyes; it is not intended for brows or furry areas high on your cheeks, especially if it has a broad epilating head. For this, you’ll either need a particular narrow head or another form.

Can You Use Epilators While Pregnant or Breastfeeding?

Epilating has no effect on the mother or the baby in any way. Physical movement, on the other hand, is challenging. In the later stages, reaching your legs or other places that need stretching becomes nearly impossible, but you are healthy. Furthermore, you are free to use when breastfeeding; hair removal will not interfere with this and can be done.


So that rounds off today’s list of modern torture devices, ahem excuse me I mean Epilators!
