Frequently Asked Questions
I have never epilated before – how should I go about it?
Braun’s Silk-épil epilators are the perfect choice for first-time users. Their High Frequency Massage system softly stimulates your skin with micro-pulsations before removing the hair, leaving your skin more relaxed. Moreover, epilating on wet skin with the Silk-épil 7 epilators is especially gentle. Still, if you are inexperienced, you may feel a little discomfort during your first epilation sessions. This will decrease with each session, as the skin adjusts to the process and the individual hairs grow back at different speeds, so that there will be less hair to remove after the first session.
Does 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.
Is epilation painful?
Silk-épil 7 epilators have been developed especially to minimize any discomfort and irritation. Being able to use the product in water also reduces discomfort and irritation as the warmth of the water releases endorphins – the body’s natural pain reliever.
How can I avoid ingrown hair?
Here’s a mini science lesson, ladies: an ingrown hair has curled backwards growing towards the follicle, often creating a small bump. This phenomenon is commonly the result of too-close shaving. To avoid ingrown hairs, exfoliate regularly to remove dead skin cells and “clear the path” so hair grows in the direction it’s supposed to! However, avoid exfoliating directly before or after epilating as this could put too much strain on your skin.
How long will the results last?
With epilation, enjoy smooth skin that lasts up to 4 weeks. Unlike surface methods like shaving creams, because epilation removes hair from the root, it takes 4-6 weeks to regenerate. And over time, your hair grows back softer and finer, with a semi-permanent effect. So say goodbye to stubble that’s rough and hard and hello to 4-week smoothness.
