I love using my Braun Silk Epil 9 epilator. It works for dry & wet epilation. That’s why I was curious to make a guide about using your epilator on your vag.
Can You Epilate Your Vag?
The short answer is yes! Although the vagina is sensitive, it is safe to use your epilator for bikini or Brazilian hair removal. I recommend you shave the hairs longer than 3 mm first using the trimmer head. After that, attach the bikini head and epilate the hairs. You will find the bikini area epilation much easier this way.
So you Can epilate Your Vagina. Should you epilate it or not? Is shaving a better option? Well, each hair removal method has its pros and cons. I will show you the main pros and cons of using an epilator on your vag.

Benefits of Epilating Your Vag
Get Smooth Results That Last Long
After I used my epilator on my vagina, the smooth skin was very soft without any pokey hairs. I found the area hair-free for more than a week. That touch is much better than shaving your vagina and the hairs grow up the next day. Besides, epilation removes the hairs from the roots, so the hairs are thinner and feel less than before.
I didn’t need to shave or epilate again for the next 3 weeks after epilation. This saves me huge time and makes me carefree about the hairs down there. I don’t like the hairs so I think the long lasting results are a huge benefit of using an epilator.
You Can DIY
It is not like waxing or laser hair removal. You can epilate your vag at home with complete privacy. You don’t even need to epilate your vag in one session. If you found it painful, take your time, and try to do it every 30 minutes to minimize the pain. The progress you make will encourage you to continue. I liked that I don’t have to go to the doctor’s clinic or wait for a long time until I remove my bikini hair using my personal epilator. Check Also: How To Make an Epilator Hurt Less?

It is better than waxing that you can remove hairs 2 millimeters long. you can epilate your vag with hairs longer than 2 mm and the new models of Braun can remove short hairs with a length of 0.5 mm.

Available on Wide Range of Price
Whether you are thinking of getting an expensive epilator like Braun Silk Epil 9 or a cheap epilator like Braun Silk Epil 3, you can use an epilator for epilating your vag hair. There are many epilators on the market that you can buy for less than $100 and you won’t need to pay any extra money for replacement parts. It is a great long-term investment. That’s why most women have epilators whether they use them for certain body areas or full body hair removal.
You can use the lower speed setting for epilating your vag with less pain than waxing and hair removal creams. If you use the epilator in the right way, it won’t cause burn, cuts, or skin allergic reactions.
Side Effects of Epilating Your Vagina
Like any other hair removal method, using your epilation on your vagina might cause some side effects such as:
Pain & Skin Inflammation
As you remove the hairs from the roots, it is a bit of a painful hair removal method. And any method that removes the hairs from the roots is painful but the results are worth it. Some areas are very sensitive and might get inflamed. Using an epilator might cause swelling and redness. Such side effects are normal and usually disappear within 24 hours. If you noticed that your skin is swollen for more than 48 hours, you should contact your doctor.
One of the most happening side effects if you don’t exfoliate your skin before using an epilator. Ingrown hairs might happen because of epilation or shaving. The best way to avoid ingrown hairs is to use an exfoliator before and after hair removal. You should at least exfoliate once weekly to keep your skin shiny and silky smooth.
Best Epilator For Vagina Hair Removal
I think Braun Silk Epil 9 is the best epilator for the bikini area. It has all the attachments you need to trim, exfoliate and epilate the vagina area. You won’t need to use any other devices for a complete skincare routine except Silk Epil 9. It is a bit expensive compared to other epilators but the results are totally worth it. You won’t need to buy replacement parts or additional razors anymore.
So, girls, you can epilate your vag. It is not as painful as you think it is. I will write a detailed guide about how to use your epilator in the public area with less pain that I’m sure will help you a lot. If you are looking for the best epilators on the market you should read my full review.
Overall, epilating your vagina might be painful at first, I agree. But with practice, you will need around 15 minutes to finish all the bikini area. If you think about it, the public area is smaller than your face and the results will last for more than 3-4 weeks. Using an epilator in the public area once a month is a great way to keep your vagina hair-free and smooth. I recommend using the epilator on dry skin, but with a dry & wet epilator, you can use the wet epilation as it hurts less. You can use the epilator for either Brazilian or bikini line hair removal. Now you can go to the beach without feeling embarrassed because you are not ready yet.
