My Philips Satinelle Epilator does not remove hair properly
Updated on 2021-10-28
If your Philips Epilator is not removing your body hair completely, follow our tips to improve the performance of your device.
Hold the epilator at the right angle
- For your epilator to remove your hair properly, its important to hold it at the right angle.
Check your epilator's model number. If it starts with BRE610 or BRE630 then hold the epilator upright at a 90° angle to your skin. For other model numbers, its better to hold the epilator a bit tilted at a 75° angle. For more detailed usage instructions please check the user manual of your epilator model.
Move the epilating head slowly over the skin while epilating, to allow the discs to catch the hair. For the best result, move the appliance against the direction of hair growth, making sure the head is in full contact with the skin.
Clean the epilator
- Before using your epilator always inspect its head to make sure it looks clean. If you see some hair or debris stuck in the epilating discs of the epilator remove them and wash the head before use. Also make sure your skin is clean and dry before epilating.
Trim your hair
- The optimal hair length for epilating is 3 - 4 mm. If your hair is longer than that, use the trimming attachment of your epilator to shorten the length of your hair. If your epilator does not come with a trimming comb, shave your hair and then wait for 7 days for the hair to grow long enough to be epilated.
