The most common method of hair removal is depilation, which removes the hair above the surface of the skin. The hair root in the skin remains untouched and thus the hair grows back again and again. This leads to the well-known and annoying stubble.
Depilation often involves the use of a razor. Whether disposable or gel razor, it is common for cuts to occur. These are not only painful, but often lead to inflammation. These cuts usually occur in places that are difficult to reach. Nevertheless, many people take this upon themselves every day, although the result lasts only for a very short time.
Another means of depilation is the depilatory cream. In this case, the hair is removed on a chemical basis. Although the result of 14 days lasts much longer than that of shaving, the hair does not remain completely removed.
Epilation, on the other hand, is a type of hair removal in which the hair root is also removed. Here, the hair with its root is torn from the skin and a longer lasting result can be achieved of up to 5 weeks. Popular are epilation by epilator, waxing or sugaring. However, with all these methods not inconsiderable pain occurs.
