Epilator is just a mechanical device that pulls out hair from the root. It is a little bit painful but an effective method to remove pubic hair.
When you start from the bikini line it isn’t painful. It seems normal. But as soon as you move to your central part, it hurts quite a bit.
The first time epilating your pubic hair takes time sometimes it takes 1 hour or more. But, smooth and hairless skin is worth this time.
You should always check your skin before Brazilian epilation because sensitive skin hurts the most and if you have sensitive skin down there, epilating pain will hurt like hell for the first time.
To avoid this kind of pain condition the skin and always epilate with the right technique.
If you Brazilian wax first and then uses an epilator on regrown hair it will hurt you far less than it would have the first time.

Benfits of epilating pubic hair
1. Smooth skin
Epilation leaves behind smooth and hairless skin. There is no hair left behind when you epilate which gives you smooth skin as Brazilian waxing gives. With shaving, you can’t even think about this kind of result.
2. Can be Done without any expertise
You can use an epilator without expertise. You just need to buy the right epilator and turn it on. Although there are some dos and don’ts, you can learn them in five minutes.
3. Cheaper than Shaving
Shaving costs you around $1 but an epilator is much cheaper than shaving in the long run. A good epilator costs around $100, but this is just a one-time investment after that you don’t need to buy anything. Even shaving costs exceed this cost in the long run.
4. Results last for 3 to 4 weeks
Epilator and waxing results last for the same period of time around 3 to 4 weeks because they both pull out hair from the root. Shaving can’t give super smooth skin even for two days.
5. Thin Hair regrowth
Hair grows thin and thin over time. After using Epilator for a long time, hair vanished from its position and pain with that.
6. Pain becomes less and less
After using an epilator again and again pain also fades out but you need to increase the frequency of using it. The epilator hurts extremely only for the first time after that pain starts decreasing gradually.
Side effects of epilating pubic hair
The epilator snatches hair from the root so it hurts as much as waxing does, sometimes even more.
2. Skin Irritation
Skin Irritation is also very common with an epilator. When hair comes out from the root, the hair follicle becomes empty and germs take over it. So always exfoliate your skin.
3. Skin damage
If you have shaved or used depilatory creams frequently before the epilator hair follicle becomes too strong and when you pull hair out it won’t come easily and sometimes damage the skin.
4. Ingrown hair.
Ingrown hair happens when hair grows under the skin. After epilation sometimes hair follicles are filled with blood which clogs the follicle and hair grows under the skin which is quite painful. Use a skin exfoliator to prevent ingrown hair.
Any hair removal method can cause ingrown hair but it is more common with an epilator.
5. Some time skin infection
Dirty skin and empty hair follicles can be invaded by bacteria and can cause skin infection which is a potential danger of epilators.
