Small electrical products that consist of a row of tweezers that pull hairs out by their roots; a process known as epilation. Rotary epilators are particularly good for removing hair from legs and arms.
These products are similar in appearance and function to electric razors, except that they remove hairs by pulling them out of the follicle rather than cutting them off with a blade at the skin's surface. The effects are therefore longer term than the results generated by using razors. There are some areas of the body that rotary epilators are not appropriate for, such as on sensitive areas like the bikini line and face, and on fine hairs.
For the best results, the hair to be treated has to be long enough for the epilator's tweezers to be able to grasp and pull them out. To aid in this procedure, the skin should also be pulled taut to avoid the tweezers pinching the skin.
Like many epilation treatments, having a warm bath prior to the treatment session will assist in the removal process as it will soften the hair and open the follicles. Generally, the better quality rotary epilators will cause less pain; some even assist by dulling the pain. The results from rotary epilator products can last from several days to a few weeks.
To reduce any skin irritation after treatment it is advisable to apply a cool, moisturising lotion to the treated area. Treatments can be repeated just as soon as the hair grows back to a suitable length for use of the rotary device again.
If you use a rotary epilator on more sensitive areas such as the bikini line or under the arms, it is recommended that you exfoliate the area (remove the dead skin cells) beforehand to prevent ingrown hairs.
