The following information and precautions are important
when epilating:
P CAUTION: Methods of removing hair by the root can cause
in-grown hairs and minor skin injuries. Please consult your doctor if
you have any questions about the use of an epilator.
P Do not use the epilator if you suffer from varicose veins, rashes,
spots or blemishes, or when the skin is irritated or if you have
in-grown hairs or a tendency to produce in-grown hairs. Consult
your doctor first.
P Any minor injury resulting from hair removal may allow
bacteria to penetrate the injury site potentially causing
small scars or a change in pigmentation of the skin. The
risk of infection may be minimized by thoroughly cleaning
the rotating discs before and/or after each use. (See
Cleaning section).
P The epilator should only be used after prior consultation with your
doctor if you have or experience:
Open wounds
* Eczema, psoriasis (scaly eczema), inflamed skin reactions such as
folliculitis, skin rashes or the tendency to allergy or allergic skin
* Immune deficiency or disorders
* Couperose, rosacea, or varicose veins
* Pregnancy
* Reduced skin immunity as a result of diabetes, pregnancy, Raynaud's
disease, etc.
« Hemophilia
* If you have moles, raised skin bumps, etc.
DP If you have been or begin taking hormone medication, or recently
been pregnant, a change in your hormone levels may influence the
thickness, color or amount of hair growth. This is caused by the
hormonal changes, not by this method of hair removal.
P Do not use bath or shower oils when epilating on wet skin as this
may cause skin irritation.

How To Use Your Epilator
P Use this epilator for its intended household use as described in this
» Рог hygienic reasons, the epilator and attachments should only be
used by one person.
db Epilation is easier and more comfortable when the hair has the
optimum length of 1/8 - 5/32in/3-4mm. If the hairs are longer, pre-
trim them first or shave and epilate after 1 to 2 weeks.
DP It is normal to experience slight skin irritation (red skin or red dots)
after epilating. In this case, it is best to epilate in the evening as most
skin irritation disappears overnight. This effect will gradually lessen
with each use.
b After each use, you may want to apply a non-alcohol based mild
cream or body lotion which will help reduce the possibility of skin
irritation. Be certain it does not contain alcohol as it may cause

such as your legs, underarms and bikini line.
D For gentle, less painful epilation, epilate in the shower or bath on wet
skin with or without shower gel or soap.
DP For dry epilating, make sure your skin is clean, free from grease and

epilator will not be able to grasp and remove the hairs. Experiment
until you find the right settings and right amount of pressure for
your type of skin and hair.
