Q: How should I use the eRase?
A: To minimize discomfort, hold the skin surrounding the area from which you are removing hair taut. Gently glide the Emjoi eRase in short, quick, brush-like, or sweeping motions in the direction of hair growth. Do not apply pressure. For your protection, your unit may slow down if it is pressed too hard against the skin.
Q: Do I always have to use my unit plugged in?
A: Yes. Your unit is electrically operated and always needs to be plugged into the electrical outlet for use.
Q: Can I use the eRase on my upper lip?
A: Yes. It can be used to remove individual hair from the upper lip and chin but you must hold the unit so only one of the epilation heads is parallel with the skin. Do not use both of the epilation heads on the face. Hold the surrounding area taut and use a small brushing motion.
Q: Can I use the eRase anywhere on my face?
A: The eRase is only intended to remove individual hair from the upper lip and chin. You must hold the unit so that only one of the epilation heads is parallel with the skin. Do not use both of the epilation heads on the face. Do not use the unit like you would an electric razor on your entire face. It is only intended to be used on the upper lip and chin.
Q: How many tweezers does the eRase have?
A: The eRase has 60 tweezers mounted on dual-opposed heads to remove a maximum amount of hair in a minimum amount of time.
Q: Can I use this unit on my bikini line and underarms?
A: Yes. Before removing hair from the bikini line or underarms, it is important to use a loofa sponge in a warm shower or bath to remove dead skin and prevent ingrown hairs. Since these areas can be sensitive, it is important to hold the skin taut.
Q: Will my hair grow back as fast as it does when I shave?
A: No. With shaving, you are cutting the hair at the surface, so it grows back quickly and leaves rough stubble. When you epilate, you are removing hair from the root so it takes longer to grow back.
Q: What can I do for ingrown hairs?
A: We recommend using a loofa or an exfoliation cream in the shower or bath to soften the skin and any ingrown hairs, enabling the eRase to remove the hair from the root. If any irritation remains for more than three days, discontinue use and consult with your health care provider.
Q: Can I let someone else use my unit?
A: No. For sanitary reasons, the eRase is recommended to be used by only one person.
Q: Does the epilation hurt?
A: The first time you use your Emjoi eRase you might feel a prickling sensation because you are removing hair from the root. After several uses, the tweezing action generally becomes more comfortable.
Q: Do the blades on my unit need to be sharpened?
A: There are no blades the Emjoi eRase. There are stainless steel tweezers which do not need to be sharpened.
Q: What is this sensitive cover for?
A: The sensitive cover hides some of the tweezers to make removing hair in sensitive areas more comfortable. It is great for upper lip, chin, and underarms.
Q: How do I put on the sensitive cover?
A: Remove the protective cap from the epilation head and replace with the sensitive cover.
Q: Why is there a shaving attachment?
A: We've included a shaving attachment to give you the option to shave or epilate. The shaver attachment has a foil head and built-in long hair trimmer.
Q: What is epilation and why is it so effective?
A: Epilating removes hair from the root so skin stays smooth for weeks. There is a series of tweezing discs that help lift and position the hair for removal. Epilation is easy to do and can be done in the privacy of your home. Epilation works on light as well as dark hair.
