Epi­la­tion of inti­mate parts of the body requires a del­i­cate approach and close atten­tion. If there are con­traindi­ca­tions to phys­i­cal, chem­i­cal meth­ods, as well as the desire to car­ry out the treat­ment your­self at home, an epi­la­tor for the biki­ni zone often becomes a solu­tion to the prob­lem of excess hair.

Mod­ern devices are equipped with spe­cial noz­zles that reduce pain and dis­com­fort from the pro­ce­dure, and are able to remove bare­ly regrown hairs. Many bat­tery mod­els are allowed to be used in the show­er, depila­tion in a more pain­less wet way. The mechan­i­cal method becomes a wor­thy alter­na­tive to hard­ware hair removal in cas­es where the sit­u­a­tion requires it.

Epilator or depilator — how is it right?

The device that we all know as an epi­la­tor, it would be more cor­rect to call it dif­fer­ent­ly — a depila­tor. After all, he removes only the hair itself, pulling it out by the root. And the epi­la­tion pro­ce­dure also involves the destruc­tion of the fol­li­cle. Pre­vi­ous­ly, only doc­tors in beau­ty salons were engaged in this, now every­thing can be done at home, because devices such as pho­to and laser epi­la­tors have appeared. They are designed as gen­er­a­tors of light ener­gy, which is sup­plied to the hair in the right con­cen­tra­tion and destroys them to the ground.

In gen­er­al, if you fol­low the exact word­ing, then devices with this device prin­ci­ple are called epi­la­tors. But it so hap­pened that man­u­fac­tur­ers, with­out com­pli­cat­ing or going into details, pro­duce all devices for hair removal labeled epi­la­tor. Includ­ing those that are designed for shav­ing and pluck­ing hair.

Man­u­fac­tur­ers call all hair removal devices epi­la­tors, with­out delv­ing into the intri­ca­cies of epi­la­tion and depila­tion


Final­ly, it remains to add a few sim­ple tips.

  1. It is rec­om­mend­ed not to wear under­wear for about an hour after epi­la­tion.
  2. If you have very thick and coarse hair, most like­ly this method will not work for you.
  3. For bet­ter epi­la­tion, use a mir­ror.
  4. After the pro­ce­dure, care­ful­ly inspect the treat­ed area. If there are wounds or cuts, treat them with antibac­te­r­i­al com­pounds.
  5. Use only a ser­vice­able device, care­ful­ly read the instruc­tions for its capa­bil­i­ties and func­tions.

Beau­ty, of course, is worth the sac­ri­fice, but they must be rea­son­able. Be atten­tive to your­self and your health.

Pros and cons of hair removal with an epilator

The epi­la­tor removes hair com­plete­ly by tak­ing it out of the fol­lic­u­lar sac. You can use it to depilate any part of the body, and the biki­ni is no excep­tion. Hair is removed for a long time (com­pared to shav­ing) — from 2 to 4 weeks, and then new ones grow back thin­ner and weak­er. That’s about the pros. There are also cons:

  • Pain. You can’t do with­out anes­the­sia, but it doesn’t always help either — dis­com­fort becomes less only because of habit. It is nec­es­sary to endure 3–5 pro­ce­dures in order to then take on this mat­ter con­fi­dent­ly and with­out fear.
  • Itch­ing, dry­ness, tight­ness of the skin, red spots, small pim­ples, in gen­er­al, all signs of irri­ta­tion. To avoid this, you need to spare no expense on an epi­la­tor — choose one that has a spe­cial noz­zle for the del­i­cate area and a mode that works on wet skin.
  • Ingrown hair. If the skin is not prop­er­ly cared for (steam baths, exfo­li­a­tion, mois­tur­iz­ing, nutri­tion), then some hairs then can­not grow upwards, bend and begin to grow down­wards. This is both unpleas­ant, and painful, and unaes­thet­ic — the skin swells in places of ingrowth, abscess­es may form. They need to be opened, all ingrown hairs removed one by one, wait until the skin heals, and only then do a new depila­tion.

The main dis­ad­van­tage of the epi­la­tor, in addi­tion to the pain of the pro­ce­dure, is the for­ma­tion of ingrown hairs.


The biki­ni area is very sen­si­tive. Close­ly locat­ed mucous mem­branes, which may be sus­cep­ti­ble to injury or infec­tion. There­fore, it is impor­tant to know not only how to use the epi­la­tor in the biki­ni area, but also to remem­ber about con­traindi­ca­tions.

  • dis­eases of an infec­tious or inflam­ma­to­ry nature;
  • dis­eases of the exter­nal gen­i­talia, espe­cial­ly in the pres­ence of dis­charge, swelling, sore­ness of the labia;
  • vari­cose veins of the hem­or­rhoidal veins, ves­sels of the gen­i­tal organs;
  • pus­tu­lar and fun­gal rash­es on the skin;
  • the pres­ence of moles in the biki­ni area, which are at risk of dam­age;
  • preg­nan­cy;
  • men­stru­a­tion.

Types of epilators

To remove hair in the biki­ni area, there is no sep­a­rate mod­el, you just need to choose the right noz­zle. Body epi­la­tors come in two types:

  • Tweez­ers. Work­ing sur­face — tweez­ers arranged in a checker­board pat­tern. Their num­ber can be dif­fer­ent, from 20 to 48. The more tweez­ers, the faster and more pain­less the depila­tion will be and the more expen­sive the device. To remove hair with such an epi­la­tor, you will have to grow them in the biki­ni area up to 5 mm.

    In a tweez­er epi­la­tor, there can be from 20 to 48 tweez­ers — the more, the bet­ter the depila­tion will be
  • Disk. The func­tion of tongs in them is per­formed by rotat­ing disks made of met­al or ceram­ics. When they approach, they grab the hair and pull it out by the root. It is bet­ter to choose the epi­la­tor that has more discs. For com­fort­able hair removal, their length should be at least 5 mm.

    In disc epi­la­tors, the func­tion of for­ceps is per­formed by rotat­ing discs, which are made of met­al or ceram­ic.

For depila­tion of the biki­ni area, it is bet­ter to take a tweez­er epi­la­tor: the pro­ce­dure will be less painful. If this is a device for 32 or 40 tweez­ers, then this is also a thor­ough depila­tion — you won’t have to treat the same place 2 times.


Angela, 28 years old, Moscow: On the advice of a friend, I bought a Brown epi­la­tor, and I have nev­er regret­ted my expens­es. The device costs about 10 thou­sand rubles, but it per­forms its work silent­ly, quick­ly and effi­cient­ly. The float­ing head pain­less­ly pulls out hairs in the del­i­cate under­arm and biki­ni area. New veg­e­ta­tion appears only after a month. I’m hap­py.

Yana, 39 years old, Tagan­rog: For a long time I did not dare to buy an epi­la­tor for the biki­ni zone, as there was a fear of using a hair removal device in such a sen­si­tive place. But my sis­ter gave me a Rowen­ta Silence Biki­ni epi­la­tor, and I tried it. The device qual­i­ta­tive­ly removes hair and does not cause pain. There is no need to re-fin­ish the pubis, since the epi­lat­ed sur­face looks per­fect.

Svet­lana, 42 years old, Irkut­sk: Remov­ing hair in the inti­mate area with an epi­la­tor has become a real sal­va­tion for me. I teach gym­nas­tics to girls of all ages. Both my stu­dents and I myself are dressed in swim­suits dur­ing class­es. It is clear that the low­er part of the body should look per­fect. Shav­ing with the machine caused me dis­com­fort and irri­ta­tion. Now I use a Pana­son­ic epi­la­tor and have a clean shaved skin for sev­er­al weeks, which is very con­ve­nient with a busy work sched­ule.

The epi­la­tor is a fair­ly con­ve­nient and mod­ern hair removal tool. But remem­ber that if the pur­chased device does not meet the cri­te­ria for the right choice, hair removal will only bring you dis­ap­point­ment from wast­ed mon­ey and the lack of a per­fect result. If the epi­la­tor does not suit you for the price or because of the increased sen­si­tiv­i­ty of the skin of the pubis, try to do a deep biki­ni with sug­ar caramel, strips, wax or depila­to­ry cream.

Depilation of the bikini area

Suc­cess­ful depila­tion begins with com­pe­tent prepa­ra­tion.

Preparation for the procedure

First you need to pre­pare the skin in the prob­lem area: steam it out by tak­ing a hot bath and do a peel­ing. It is best to use a scrub with a nat­ur­al com­po­si­tion — sug­ar or cof­fee. After a hot bath or show­er, the pores will open and the hair will be eas­i­er to remove. Peel­ing is need­ed in order to get rid of the ker­a­tinized top lay­er of the skin and pre­vent the appear­ance of ingrown hairs.

If the skin in the biki­ni area is sen­si­tive, 10–15 min­utes before depila­tion, apply Lido­caine Spray or Men­o­vazin to the entire prob­lem area (except for the mucous mem­brane). When you feel that the anes­thet­ic has begun to work, apply talc to the skin. It will absorb excess mois­ture — this is impor­tant, because depila­tion on dry skin can be done much faster.

To avoid pain, before depila­tion, the skin should be treat­ed with Lido­caine.

How to remove hair with an epilator

The clas­sic biki­ni can be treat­ed with the stan­dard epi­la­tor head. For depila­tion of a deep biki­ni, a nar­row appli­ca­tor is more suit­able.

To remove hair in the biki­ni area with an epi­la­tor, you need to do the fol­low­ing:

  1. When the desired attach­ment is fixed, take the epi­la­tor and place it with the work­ing sur­face against the skin. The han­dle will be per­pen­dic­u­lar to the body.
  2. In the biki­ni area, the skin is espe­cial­ly thin and sen­si­tive. In order not to dam­age it, set the epi­la­tor to the low­est speed.
  3. Move the device against hair growth, and with your free hand, pull the skin in the direc­tion of hair growth. Any­thing to make it less painful.
  4. After all hair is removed, treat the skin with an anti­sep­tic. Any of those that are in the home first aid kit, for exam­ple, chlorhex­i­dine, will do.
  5. Then mois­tur­ize the skin with milk or body cream, and after 20–30 min­utes, when the prod­uct is absorbed, with a means to slow down hair growth.

To pre­vent ingrown hairs, it is use­ful to reg­u­lar­ly treat the skin with sal­i­cylic acid.

It’s good if the epi­la­tor comes with a noz­zle for del­i­cate areas — it is nar­row­er than usu­al, and it is more con­ve­nient to process the area of ​​​​the labia and per­ineum with it


Epi­la­tion is not always a pleas­ant and even uncom­fort­able process, but it is it that allows you to achieve the effect of smooth skin with­out excess veg­e­ta­tion. Depila­tion of the inti­mate area (shav­ing or using a cream that removes hairs) gets rid of hairs for a cou­ple of days, and they con­tin­ue to grow at a fast pace. The essence of epi­la­tion is to remove the hair fol­li­cle and dis­rupt the struc­ture of the fol­li­cle, which is why the hairs grow more slow­ly after the pro­ce­dure. An addi­tion­al plus is that they are then much thin­ner.

The epi­la­tor for the inti­mate area allows you to get rid of unwant­ed veg­e­ta­tion for a peri­od of 2 to 4 weeks (depend­ing on the rate of nat­ur­al hair growth and their struc­ture). It has a num­ber of fea­tures. It is worth talk­ing about the advan­tages of home hair removal using a spe­cial machine:

  1. Ease of use. Doing hair removal on your own is more pleas­ant than trust­ing your body to a mas­ter (if she is not your best friend).
  2. The qual­i­ta­tive result is stored for 2–4 weeks.
  3. The growth of hairs slows down, their qual­i­ty notice­ably “spoils” — this is “on hand” for women.
  4. Allows you to remove hair in the inti­mate area using the deep biki­ni or clas­sic tech­nique. The essence of the first is com­plete smooth­ness, the sec­ond is hair removal along the panty line.
  5. It saves mon­ey and time — you don’t have to vis­it an expen­sive salon, it’s enough to buy a type­writer and use it at home — for a cou­ple of years (and even more).

Now a few words about the cons of the device:

  1. Painful process. The epi­la­tion pro­ce­dure (espe­cial­ly the inti­mate zone) is anoth­er “plea­sure” that will have to be endured. If you do not need such tor­ment, you will need to look for ways to facil­i­tate the process — anes­thet­ic gels, oint­ments, cool­ing pads or pouch­es.
  2. Gives irri­ta­tion — or a nor­mal skin reac­tion to hair removal along with the bulb. Irri­ta­tion appears in 99% of cas­es, it goes away on its own or forces a woman to use “heavy artillery” — all the same gels, oint­ments and creams with a sooth­ing com­po­si­tion.
  3. The appear­ance of ingrown hairs. Alas, this prob­lem can appear from any type of hair removal — epi­la­tor, wax or sug­ar. Ingrown hairs appear due to a vio­la­tion of the tex­ture of the hair fol­li­cle, which leads to abnor­mal hair growth — it lit­er­al­ly begins to grow inside the skin. The best way to get rid of the prob­lem is to pre­vent it and prop­er­ly pre­pare the skin for the epi­la­tion process, and pro­vide qual­i­ty care after.

Hair removal with an epi­la­tor allows you to make the inti­mate area smooth and main­tain this effect for four weeks.

Epi­la­tion requires prepa­ra­tion and fur­ther skin care in order to pre­serve its beau­ty and smooth­ness, to make the pro­ce­dure safe and rel­a­tive­ly pleas­ant. This home care rou­tine is incred­i­bly pop­u­lar with women and men (despite their sore­ness) who are puz­zled by their appear­ance.

If a few years ago the inti­mate area was treat­ed with a clas­sic epi­la­tor, then today advanced users choose a spe­cial machine with a gen­tle noz­zle (usu­al­ly the num­ber of tweez­ers or discs in it is less) and a nar­row­er head — to work out the most sen­si­tive areas. These are, for exam­ple, the labia, the inter­gluteal zone. An epi­la­tor for the inti­mate area can be a noz­zle for a clas­sic machine or pro­duced sep­a­rate­ly, have a trim­mer attach­ment (for cut­ting long hairs) or do with­out it.

What is the best epilator for the bikini area

What you should pay atten­tion to when choos­ing a device:

  • Before buy­ing an epi­la­tor, it is impor­tant to under­stand the con­di­tion of your skin. Based on this, you need to choose a device for dry hair removal (they can work with­out creams and gels) or for a wet one, which is suit­able for skin prone to irri­ta­tion. There are also mixed-type epi­la­tors, where it is pos­si­ble to switch from one mode to anoth­er. For a biki­ni, it is prefer­able to take an epi­la­tor that can be used in the show­er.
  • Num­ber of speeds. There can be a max­i­mum of three, but mod­els with two modes are more com­mon. The more of them, the bet­ter, because by switch­ing modes, you will feel at what speed it is less painful to remove hair.
  • Equip­ment. The stan­dard set includes a brush for clean­ing the device from hairs. There is an extend­ed pack­age, which includes: a shav­ing head, a noz­zle for peel­ing, del­i­cate areas, mas­sage, facial cleans­ing, etc. The lim­iter noz­zle allows you to work with only part of the tweez­ers or disks — at first it is much eas­i­er to trans­fer the pro­ce­dure if not all 40 tweez­ers are plucked out simul­ta­ne­ous­ly, but only a fifth of them. The num­ber of noz­zles affects the cost of the epi­la­tor.
  • Pow­er type. The epi­la­tor can run on mains or bat­tery. A device with a bat­tery is more con­ve­nient, because it will be pos­si­ble to take it on the road and use it in a vari­ety of sit­u­a­tions. With­out recharg­ing, the epi­la­tor can work for about 30–40 min­utes.
  • Back­light. Most mod­els now have it. The absence is not crit­i­cal, but will make epi­la­tion a lit­tle less con­ve­nient.

For depila­tion of a deep biki­ni, you can use a lim­iter or put on a facial cap to remove hair one at a time or in small tufts
