If an epilator is used on dry skin, an ingrown hair may be formed, which can be painful to remove. So it is important to ensure that the skin is moisturised and clean before using the epilator.
Ingrown hairs are also sometimes formed if threading is used to remove the unwanted hair.
The epilators and shavers available in the market are either battery operated or use a electric power supply. Battery powered epilators are usually easier to use and handle, but are less effective. Epilators with a 230V power supply offer less flexibility, but are sometimes better for removing hair .
A variety of shavers and epilators for hair removal are available. Both have their advantages and disadvantages – epilators remove hair from the root, but it can be painful. Shavers are more convenient, but hair regrowth is faster.

Philips Satinelle Epilator HP 6609 is more compact compared to other epilators, but has a few design flaws which detract from its performance. When connected to 230 V power supply through a Belkin surge suppressor, it does not work at all, but functions intermittently when connected directly to the mains supply or through a GM power guard. Though it costs about Rs 1000 ($25) more than the Braun Silk Epil 3170, its performance is not as good.
