How does epilating work?

Removing bodily hair is a very common process for the vast majority of the population. There are three main methods of removing hair: shaving, waxing and epilating. Shaving is a much less effective way of truly eliminating hair and in turn it is very difficult to really achieve that silky smooth feeling. Epilating and waxing, however, completely remove hairs from the body. Although, this can be very painful for the user which may put a person off of choosing these methods, missing their opportunity to obtain truly hairless skin in their desired area. Epilating involves using an epilator to fully remove hairs, at the root. An epilator doesn't use any form of wax and instead plucks hair straight out of the body as it glides across its surface. Furthermore, epilating provides a much longer lasting solution in hair removal, taking 3-6 weeks for hair to begin its regrowth.
