Epilation – the longer lasting removal
In contrast to depilation, with epilation the hair is removed by the root. There are also several ways of doing this. This can be done with cold wax strips, warm wax or electrically with the epilator. Unpleasant side effects can occur. The most common is probably reddened and irritated skin.
With sugaring, hair is removed with sugar paste and is more gentle than waxing or epilation. First, the skin is cleaned so that it is free of grease. Then the sugar paste is applied against the direction of hair growth. Then the paste has to take effect briefly and is then pulled off with the hair on it.
After that, hair growth stops for a certain period of time. When the hair is pulled out by the root, it takes time until it can recede and come back to the surface of the skin.
