Epilator is an electrical device used to remove hair from the body. This device involuntarily plucks of hair strands from the skin. The process is similar to waxing but one major difference between epilators and waxing is that epilators do not remove cells from the epidermis. Women are the key end users of hair removal appliances. The need to have a smooth and flawless skin has encouraged women to use hair removal appliances. Epilators have a different mode of action as that of shavers. They do not remove the hair from surface, rather pluck off hair strands from their roots. This gives a permanent solution as compared to shaving. Therefore, men use shavers for facial hair, whereas women prefer epilators. In addition, companies provide epilators with different shaving and trimming accessories in an effort to attract more number of male customers. The epilators designed for both men and women have similar mode of operations. However, design differences of these determine their adoption rate.
