Now the motor rotated the spring and this rotating spring when moved along the skin it caught some hairs and pulled them out. It was very basic idea to remove hairs. Now there are manual epilators, which do not need electricity to work. Though now there are more advance and improved methods than this method of hair removal based on spring.

The disc containing epilator consisted of a motor that rotated the disc and these discs removed hairs by pulling them out similar to spring type epilators. Later the disc of disc containing epilator was divided into multiple discs. The head of modern epilator has a series of metal plates. These metal plates work as tweezers. When the head rotates, the tips of plates also rotate with it. The hairs which are caught in between the plates are removed from the skin same as with the tweezers. It is very safe and painless method. This type of epilators has many functions, which make this efficient, time saving and easy to use.

With the use of cream or gel the pain can be reduced and the irritation can be prevented. Also if a rechargeable epilator can be used in wet conditions than one can use it while showering which saves times.
