Is epilation the same as hair removal?

Why don't they just call it "hair removal"?


Answer by  jlwilson6 (1098)

Epilation is a form of the hair removal process. The epilation actually removes the hair from under the skin's surface at the roots. This is different from diplation hair removal removes the hair that is only on the surface of the skin. The epilation is commonly used to make the hair grow back slower, and for smooth skin.

Epilation is one form of hair removal. It uses an electrical devise that pulls hair out from the roots. There are other "hair removal" methods such as shaving, waxing, and creams.

Epilation is a form of temporary hair removal which removes the hair shaft and root by extracting the hair with an electronic device. It is not referred to as hair removal because it is a temporary solution, it has to be repeated many times for any permanent results.
