Depilation with wax, or epilation is based on the principle of tearing hair with wax. The agent is applied to the depilated area for hair growth, then a strip of tissue or strong paper is applied to the wax and pressed against the body. The most important point is to tear the tissue of the skin sharply and adequately. It is necessary to pull parallel to the surface of the skin against hair growth. Remains of wax are removed with oils.
