How to choose an epilator for business use and popular ranking recommendation

CurrentLy, there are many commerciaL hair removaL devices on the market in Japan.

EspeciaLLy for those who are opening a saLon for the first time, and those who start hair removaL as a side business, choosing a professionaL epi l ator is probably the most annoying thing.

Choosing an epilator for commercial use is a big point that separates the success or failure of the hair removal business.

If you purchase a hair removal device that is high in the rankings, you may find that the after-sales follow-up is not satisfactory or you cannot perform the desired treatment.

However, I think that there are many people who say, "I don't really understand the types of commercial epilators," "I don't know what criteria to choose," and "I don't know what to pay attention to when choosing a manufacturer."

So this time, for those who start hair removal business for the first time

  • Types of commercial epilators
  • How to choose a commercial hair removal machine
  • Popular recommended ranking of hair removal machines for business use
  • Considerations when choosing a hair removal machine for business
  • Manufacturer features to watch out for

I'd like to introduce_______

Part1. Types of commercial hair removal machines

Currently, there are three types of hair removal using machines in Japan: medical hair removal, laser hair removal, and needle hair removal .

  • Medical (laser) hair removal

Treatment using a laser epilator.

Permanent hair removal is possible because the laser destroys the hair-producing cells in the hair root and stops hair from growing.

Use is permitted only at medical institutions and cannot be introduced at general beauty salons.

  • needle hair removal

Permanent hair removal is possible by inserting a needle called a flop into the hair root and destroying the hair-producing tissue.

To use it, you need to be qualified as a "certified electric epilator", but it can also be introduced at beauty salons.

However, there are few stores that have introduced needle hair removal, and it can be said that the name recognition is low.

  • light (flash) hair removal

Treatment using a flash epilator.

The flash that reacts with the melanin pigment (black pigment of the hair) suppresses the action of the hair growth tissue and makes it difficult for hair to grow.

It can be used at general beauty salons as it does not require any special qualifications or permission to use.

In addition, there are three types of commercial hair removal devices used for light (flash) hair removal: “ IPL ”, “ SHR ”, and “ SSC ”.

  • IPL

An abbreviation for "Intense Pulse Light", it damages the hair-producing tissue with a flash that reacts with the melanin pigment (the black pigment in the hair), making it difficult for hair to grow.

  • SHR

An abbreviation for "super hair removal", it is a hair removal method (heat storage type hair removal) that promotes hair growth and approaches the hair follicles.

Instead of the melanin pigment, heat is continuously stored in the entire hair follicle, making it difficult for hair to grow.

  • SSC

Short for “smooth skin control,” this is a hair removal method developed by the Italian company DEKA.

By irradiating the skin coated with hair removal gel, the gel penetrates into the pores and makes it difficult for hair to grow.

The following table summarizes the respective irradiation intervals and advantages and disadvantages.

Part2. How to choose a commercial hair removal machine

現在日本では様々な業務脱毛器がリリースされており、どれを選ぶか迷う人が多いかと思います。

値段やTypes of commercial epilatorsだけで導入する業務用脱毛器を決めてしまうと、後に思わぬトラブルに繋がることも。

業務用脱毛器は

  • Safety and Warranty
  • Machine size and whether electrical work is required
  • Introduction support and after-sales follow-up
  • Manufacturer's track record
  • Menu contents
  • Treatment time
  • running cost
  • Is it possible to lease or rent

Let's choose with an emphasis on

(1) Safety and warranty details

The safety of commercial epilators is of paramount importance.

Check if there is a function to automatically stop irradiation when the machine gets hot, and if there have been any skin problems reported so far.

In addition, it can be said that a machine with a long warranty period is a commercial epilator that is less likely to break down.

Machine failures have a big impact on the business of the store, so be sure to check the details of the repair fee and money back guarantee as well.

(2) Is the size of the machine and whether electrical work is necessary?

The size of the machine is also an important point when choosing an epilator for business use.

If the machine is large, it may not be possible to pack it when sending it in for repairs, or it may feel oppressive because it does not fit the size of the room.

Also, since the voltage in Japan is 100V, electrical work is required when introducing a 200V commercial hair removal device.

When choosing a commercial hair removal device, check whether it is too large for the treatment room or whether electrical work is required.

③ Support at the time of introduction and after-sales follow-up

When introducing a hair removal device for business use, let's check whether they will give a lecture on how to use it and whether they will handle payment carefully.

In addition, it is also important to check whether there is a regular inspection, and whether the after-sales follow-up such as response in the event that the machine breaks down is substantial.

④ Manufacturer's track record

There is a reason why manufacturers with many achievements continue to be chosen by salons.

Manufacturers with a long track record often provide services that make use of their past achievements, such as smooth introduction support and careful periodic inspections.

When introducing a commercial hair removal device, check the number of contracted salons and reviews of the manufacturer.

⑤ Menu contents

Some commercial epilators have not only hair removal functions, but also menus other than hair removal, such as face care, bust care, and body makeup functions.

The more abundant the menu, the more suggestions you can make, and the easier it is to increase your earnings.

Also, if the menu is abundant, the repeat rate and the possibility of acquiring new customers will increase, so it will be easier for the store to get on track.

⑥ Treatment time

The time of treatment is a point related to the reputation of the store.

There are two types of epilators for commercial use: single-shot type and continuous-shot type.

However, if the power of one shot is weak even with the continuous shooting type, it will take time and cost, and the hair removal effect will be difficult to obtain.

If you choose a rapid-fire commercial hair remover, check the power of one shot.

⑦ Running cost

The running cost of commercial epilators is determined by the lamp replacement cost and the cost per shot.

The cost per shot is about 0.1 yen to 1.2 yen.

It is said that 2,000 to 3,000 shots are required to remove hair from the whole body, so it costs 200 to 3,600 yen, so you can see that there is a big difference.

It does not mean that the cheaper the cost, the better, but check the running cost when introducing an epilator for business use.

⑧ Is it possible to lease or rent?

The method of introducing a commercial hair removal device is not only purchase, but also a method of leasing or renting.

If you can lease or rent, you can reduce the initial cost even if you introduce the latest commercial epilator.

If you are opening a salon for the first time or want to reduce the risk of business failure, choose a commercial epilator that can be leased or rented.

Part4. 3 things to keep in mind when choosing a hair removal machine for business use

Here are some things to keep in mind when choosing a professional hair removal machine.

□ If you buy a second-hand hair removal machine, you will not receive support

It is natural that you want to keep the initial cost as low as possible when starting a hair removal salon.

However, as a way to reduce the initial cost, you need to be careful when purchasing a second-hand hair removal device for business use.

A used commercial epilator is cheaper than a new one, but it may not come with warranty or support.

If you want to keep the initial cost down, you can also use leasing or rental, so consider carefully.

□ Even if the unit price and running cost are low, if the after-sales follow-up is not sufficient, it is NG

As a way to reduce the initial cost when starting a hair removal salon, there is a method of choosing a commercial hair removal device with a low main unit price and running cost.

However, even if the initial cost is kept down, if the after-sales follow-up when the product breaks down is not sufficient, it will be a negative for the store.

For example, if you are slow to respond when something breaks down, you may have to cancel the reservation, and if the repair cost is high, even if the initial cost is low, it may end up costing you a lot.

Therefore, it can be said that it is very dangerous to choose a commercial hair removal device based only on price and running cost.

□ Even commercial epilators claiming to be made in Japan may use parts made overseas.

I think that many people feel uneasy about foreign-made epilators, but they are not necessarily of poor quality or performance.

There are also high-quality, high-performance epilators made overseas for commercial use, and there are also those whose irradiation settings can be matched to the skin type of Japanese people. 

However, it is important to note that even products that claim to be made in Japan may have parts imported from overseas and assembled in Japan.

It is not said that foreign-made commercial epilators are of poor quality or performance, but if you want to introduce a purely domestic commercial epilator, you should check the production area of the parts.

Part5. Beware of such manufacturers!

When purchasing an epilator for business use, we will introduce the characteristics of manufacturers that require attention.

・ It claims that even gray hair and downy hair can be removed

The commercial epilators used in beauty salons can be used without a license, but due to the limited power, they cannot be expected to be effective for gray hair or downy hair.

However, there are a certain number of needs for "care for gray hair and downy hair", so there are rare manufacturers that claim that they can remove gray hair and downy hair.

In the unlikely event that you meet such a manufacturer, ask for the presentation of the evidence that you can approach even gray hair and downy hair.

・The number of introduced salons is small

The number of salons that have introduced the system does not necessarily measure the full strength of the manufacturer, but it is certainly an indicator.

Manufacturers with an extremely small number of salons may sell low-quality and low-performance commercial hair removal devices, or may not have sufficient after-sales follow-up and services.

Manufacturers with an extremely small number of salons can find the reason for this and avoid purchasing commercial epilators from unscrupulous manufacturers.
