How do you all take care of your skin?
If you are a woman, it is natural to want to make your skin look beautiful, and some of you may spend a lot of time on beauty.
In particular, the point of concern is the treatment of unwanted hair.
There are beauty salons that do hair removal, but the running cost is high because you need to go to the beauty salon regularly.
Therefore, I think there are many people who are doing hair removal at home.
Some people may be worried about using a home hair remover every day because they can easily do it themselves at home.
In order to maximize the effect of hair removal, you must acquire the correct knowledge.
In this article, we'll go into detail about various related knowledge related to hair loss.
Part 1. About preparation before hair removal
When using a home hair remover, do not use the machine suddenly.
Before hair removal, proper preparation must be done.
Preparing for hair removal involves shaving the areas to be removed.
However, when shaving the area to be depilated, you must keep in mind not to damage the skin.
There is a clear reason for this, and there are types of hair removal devices for home use, such as laser hair removal and photo hair removal, but the reason why the irradiated area must be shaved is to prevent skin burns.
Hair removal using laser and light has the property of reacting with the melanin pigment contained in the hair and generates heat.
The epilator is a mechanism that uses the heat generated to give an effect to the hair growth tissue of the hair root itself.
Therefore, if the epilator is used while hair is still growing on the area to be removed, there is a risk of the laser and light reacting excessively and causing burns to the skin.
In this way, by understanding the characteristics of the epilator, you can properly prepare for hair removal.
Part2. How to use the epilator correctly?
When using an epilator, if you do not understand how to use it correctly, you will not only not get the proper effect, but it may also cause serious damage to your skin.
In particular, home-use epilators are not performed by people with specialized knowledge at esthetic salons.
Because you can easily do it yourself, you need to know how to use it correctly.
The correct way to use a specific epilator is as follows:
[Until the day before hair removal]
- By the day before hair removal, shave the area where you are going to remove hair.
- Thoroughly wash the area to be depilated to keep it clean. Do not use lotion after washing.
- Set the power level of the home epilator to an appropriate value
- Cool the area to be irradiated with a home hair remover for about 10 seconds using a cooling agent.
- Start hair removal using a home epilator
- After the hair removal treatment is completed, cool the area where hair has been removed for about 10 seconds.
Follow the steps above to ensure proper hair removal.
Part 3. Be careful after hair removal! ! (Aftercare)
When using a hair removal device for home use, you must not forget the aftercare after hair removal.
Home-use epilators use the heat generated by lasers and light to give an effect to the hair growth tissue of the hair root itself.
Therefore, the purpose is to irradiate the skin and hair roots with laser and light, and heat is always generated during the hair removal process.
Therefore, the moisture in the skin will inevitably evaporate under the influence of the heat emitted by the home epilator.
From the above, the following three points should be noted.
- reduce skin inflammation
- Be careful not to dry your skin
- promote hair loss
In order to avoid the points of caution mentioned above, it is necessary to be sure to moisturize properly.
When using a home hair remover to remove hair, be sure to moisturize.
Part 4. Types of epilators and comparison of effects
There are many types of home exfoliators.
Also, the effect differs depending on the type, so you have to wash it properly depending on what kind of hair removal effect you are looking for.
Specific types and effects are as follows.
Effect on skin
hair removal effect
Hair loss range
Effective over a wide area
Effective for pinpointing
Part5. How often do you use a home epilator?Can I use it every day? ?
Home-use epilators can be used every day because you can do it yourself at home.
However, there are cases where daily use is not optimal considering the effects on the skin.
From here, I will explain the cases where you can use it every day and the cases where you should not use it every day.
[Case that can be used every day]
・If the part to be depilated is different
・If the laser and light could not be applied to the area where hair removal was intended
[Cases that should not be used every day]
・When irradiating the same area with laser and light
・If the area where you are going to remove hair is sunburned
・If the area to be depilated has undergone treatment such as tweezing
In this way, depending on the case, there are cases where it can be used every day and cases where it should not be used, so be careful.
So far, we've covered a variety of related knowledge about hair loss in detail.
Home-use epilators have the great advantage of being able to significantly reduce the time and cost of going to esthetic salons because they can be easily performed at home.
However, you should not forget that you can easily do it yourself, so if you do not recognize the correct usage, it will lead to skin problems.
In addition, by properly performing aftercare, you can expect the effect of suppressing dryness and inflammation of the skin and promoting the hair removal effect.
By all means, I would like you to consider using a home hair remover.
We hope that this article will be of help to those who are considering using a home epilator to remove hair.
