This one may be new to you. An epilator is a tool designed to remove hair from the root. While, in general, hair removal may be painful, using an epiliator is similar to or may be even less painful than waxing. The smooth and sexy results from using an epilator may also last up to six weeks and regular use of an epilator commonly results in finer regrowth.
