Epilar description

Share this

Hair today, gone tomorrow. The Epilar removal system consists of two gels designed for application after waxing or electrolysis. The gels are massaged in to the skin, targeting hair follicles and reducing regrowth. This means that your skin will stay smooth and fuzz free for longer – sounds good to us…

How does it work?

The Epilar Inhibitor and Activator gels are simply massaged in to the skin for one minute each directly following waxing or electrolysis. Any residue is removed with a paper cloth. The gels decrease pain levels and inhibit hair regrowth so that you can leave a longer length of time between waxes.

Wonder exactly how it works? It’s time to get all scientific. The active ingredient in the Epilar gels is called Trypsin and it targets the protein in the hair follicles. The cells which produce hair cannot survive without protein and are destroyed, preventing hair regrowth. After an Epilar treatment, hair takes double the amount of time to grow back and the number of hairs that grow are said to be reduced by at least 20%.

It only takes two to three treatments to achieve a significant reduction in hair removal – so you can enjoy being super smooth without having to worry about your next wax appointment.

Is it for me?

Unlike laser hair removal and IPL, which tend not to work on darker skin and on blonde or red hair, Epilar hair removal is suitable for all skin and hair colours. It is appropriate for use by both male and female clients.

Epilar gives similar results to laser hair removal but is much cheaper – which means more money to spend on tanning your silky pins.

Good to know

The gels can be used in conjunction with waxing on most parts of the body, including the upper lip, eyebrows, underarms, bikini line, stomach and legs. So there really is no excuse to go around looking like a yeti, now, is there?
