The epilator is considered to be one of the most popular female body care devices. Unlike a razor, it removes hairs along with roots. The result of this treatment persists for three to four weeks. New hairs appear from other bulbs sleeping in the skin. Over time, hair removal can be carried out less frequently, as regular pulling with roots significantly reduces vegetation. We have compiled a complete rating of the best epilators of 2021 and collect all the information on the operation of the device.
At the heart of the work of a good epilator is a multi-rate system, in which several dozen hairs are captured and pulled out at once. Everything works even if the length of the latter does not exceed 0.3-0.5 mm. Their number depends on the features of the particular device and its brand.
Philips has a Satinelle system with 21 pairs of tweezers; this is an approximate value, options are possible. Depending on the given mode, such an epilator makes 600 to 733 pinches per minute. Braun Silk-Epil has 20 pairs of tweezers, and Rowenta Precision has 32.
Constructively modern epilators are divided into two groups.
- Disc. Discs are fixed on the axis in pairs. Rotating at high speed, they touch each other on one side and grab the hairs. Their further movement draws the hair up and pulls it out. Both discs can be made of metal or paired with one metal, the other ceramic.
- The tweezers. A modern design that grew out of disk modification. On the rotating head are paired metal plates. They also come into contact with each other and pull unwanted vegetation from the root.
- Laser. They are unlike any of the examples described above. These are “younger brothers” of professional devices that are used in beauty salons. For a fraction of a second, the laser beam permeates the hair along the entire length of the bulb and destroys it. The temperature rises rapidly, but everything happens so fast that you will not feel any pain. In addition, the procedure is accompanied by the same rapid cooling.
THE BEST BUDGET EPILATORS
In this category, we have collected for you inexpensive epilators up to 5 thousand rubles. Among them are simple models, no-frills, and quite solid kits with several nozzles and additional gadgets. Of course, they are not always superior to expensive devices, but it is quite worthy of the attention of thrifty buyers.
The weak point of most inexpensive epilators is anesthesia. It is either missing or presented by one of the above nozzles. Really effective among them are few.
Budget epilators mostly can not work in a humid environment. Only a few are used at the same time as foam. But there are models with illumination, which perfectly solve the problem of insufficient lighting. In general, these are good devices with basic functions that will suit you if you are not afraid of discomfort during the procedure.

THE BEST LASER EPILATORS AND PHOTO EPILIERS
Photoepilators, the principle of which is to remove hairs by laser – not the most budget purchase. Of course, there are inexpensive models for a couple of thousand rubles, but the resource there is many times less. Suppose the average cost of the cartridge machine is enough for 300,000 flashes, in the economy version of 50,000. Otherwise, they can be quite a good purchase for a thrifty girl. We have indicated both budget and expensive options in this category so that you will see for yourself.
Importantly! Exhaustion of the number of flashes does not always mean that the device’s resource is exhausted; sometimes, you just need to buy and install a new lamp (cartridge). But be careful, there are models in which there is no replacement lamp. Then the duration of the epilator is equal to the number of flashes.
Before we go to the rating, let’s tell a little about the presence of contraindications. They are, although their list is small. Photo epilation should not be carried out:
- Pregnant and lactating women;
- patients with suspected oncology;
- people with dermatological diseases;
- those who have recently burned in the sun or overdid in a tanning bed.
Please note that the hair should be shaved before the photo epilation procedure. So the light wave quickly gets to the root, and the effect of the procedure is better. And one more thing: the instant effect is not to wait even from the most expensive photo epilator. It does not destroy the hair cover at once; it will require several procedures.
We’ve selected 5 of the best photo papers of 2021 for you. These are devices from different price categories with a different set of features so that you can choose on your own goals and budget. In the ranking are the products of several companies.

The wavelength is also quite comparable to the same point at expensive models – 475-1200 nm; the last number is the maximum for all categories. The duration of the outbreak, equal to 500-800 ms by modern standards, is small.
What really distinguishes this gadget from the expensive one is the resource of the lamp in just 50,000 flashes. But the lamp here is removable and replaceable. The interesting thing is that it costs about like the whole device.

HOW TO CHOOSE A GOOD EPILATOR FOR HOME USE?
Previously, spring epilators were popular, and they are still occasionally found on AliExpress. The hairs are gripped by a metal spring as it regains its shape after a preliminary sprain. Hair gets stuck between the spirals and breaks out as it moves sideways. The procedure is painful, and the springs quickly wear out, so spring models quickly lost most of their fans after the advent of more modern models. If you do not know how to choose an epilator for the home of your use should immediately tell and apply!
Let’s just say that it is now minimal if you use a quality epilator. For anesthesia, such devices are equipped with cooling systems, massage, and additional nozzles. Let’s dwell in detail on each.
- Cooling. Most often, the package provides a cooling glove. Inside it is a gel that keeps the temperature low for a long time. It should be kept in the refrigerator and before the hair removal to hold on to the skin. Nervous endings for a while will lose sensitivity; pain sensations will dull or disappear altogether.
- Massage. A special nozzle massages and relaxes the skin, disrupting the transmission of signals between nerve endings. You won’t feel anything until the nozzle is working. Once the contract is complete, the sensitivity will return; it is completely safe.
- Nozzles with holes. Often these can be found on budget models. The nozzle covers a part of the tweezers, due to which the hairs are pulled out in smaller quantities. Accordingly, the pain is less. Doubtful pleasure, given that the device’s efficiency falls and you need to pass them on one zone several times.
We have collected the best epilators for you and sorted them into three categories: budget, luxury, and photo epilators. We put the latter in a separate ranking because they have their fans, who usually do not use other gadgets. As for the cost, photo papers are not cheap, but the costs are always justified.
