Epilation is a great way to remove hair from your body. It can be done with a variety of methods, including waxing, threading, and laser hair removal. However, there are many myths about epilation that still exist today. In this article, we will dispel some of those myths and give you the truth about epilation!

1. Myth: Epilation is Painful – Epilation treatments can be uncomfortable, but they should not cause pain. It is possible to reduce the level of discomfort with certain epilation methods such as threading or laser hair removal and by applying numbing creams prior to the treatment. However, it’s important to remember that everyone has a different pain threshold and what one person finds uncomfortable may be unbearable for another.

2. Myth: Epilation is Time Consuming – Epilation treatments can take time when done manually; however, newer technologies such as laser hair removal offer quick and efficient treatments that can often be completed in just minutes. This makes epilation a great option for those needing immediate results without having to dedicate hours of their day for regular waxing or threading appointments.

3. Myth: Epilation Makes Hair Grow Back Faster and Thicker – Contrary to popular belief, epilating does not cause hair follicles to grow back faster or thicker than before treatment. During the epilating process, only the outer layer of the hair follicle is removed from the skin surface while leaving behind all of the parts responsible for growth intact; this allows new hairs to grow back at a normal rate without any changes in thickness or texture.

4. Myth: Epilation Damages Your Skin – Properly administered epilation treatments do not cause any damage to your skin tissues nor cause scarring or discoloration when done correctly. It’s important that you make sure your technician follows all safety protocols during treatment in order to avoid any potential risks and ensure an effective session without any harm done to your skin surfaces.

5. Myth: You Must Let Your Hair Grow Out Before Epilating – Contrary to popular belief, it’s not necessary to let your hair grow out significantly before having an epilating session done on you; in fact, it’s better when you shave 1-3 days prior so your technician has enough time to work with freshly shorn stubble during epilating sessions as this makes it easier for them to grab onto short hairs during the process and pull them out more effectively without damaging surrounding skin tissues. 

6. Myth: Different Areas Of The Body Need Different Types Of Epilations – While there are many different types of epilations available depending on where on the body they are being applied (i.e., waxing versus threading), these different techniques are interchangeable across varying body parts; however, some areas may respond differently due to skin type or texture which should be taken into consideration when deciding which method is best for you personally based on your desired outcome.

7. Myth: All Hair Removal Treatments Are The Same – While waxing and threading may seem like similar methods of hair removal due to their similar levels of efficiency and cost-effectiveness, each form of epilation offers its own unique set of benefits that cannot be achieved through other means; for example, laser hair removal offers permanent results that cannot be matched by other types of treatments while waxing provides fast results in terms of both speed and duration per session compared to other methods such as threading or plucking which can take more time overall due its manual nature requiring more precision work per strand being treated than automated machinery such as lasers provide in a single pulse.

In conclusion, epilation is a great option for those looking to achieve longer-lasting results with minimal effort and cost; however, it’s important to understand the facts in order to make an informed decision and ensure you are getting the best possible treatment without unnecessary risks. Remember to always consult with a professional prior to your epilating session in order to take advantage of their expertise and get the most out of your next session.
