Braun Silk-expert IPL 5 5008 Laser Hair Removal at Home for Body and Face

Braun Silk-expert is a ground-breaking IPL system which results in permanent visible hair removal in as little as four treatments. It works beneath the skin's surface by targeting the melanin in the hair follicle, helping to break the cycle of hair regrowth. With continued, regular use, it helps prevent unwanted hair from reaching the skin surface.

Skin tone varies across different parts of the body, with each tone requiring a specific energy level to target the melanin. Only Braun Silk-expert has the unique SensoAdapt skin tone sensor which continuously reads your skin tone - 80x per second - and automatically adapts the light intensity for best efficacy and safety. This removes the guesswork of having to match your skin tone against the complicated colour matching charts other devices require.

No other IPL technology is faster. Braun Silk-Expert IPL provides fast treatments suitable for large parts of the body such as legs or arms. A leg or arm can be treated in just 8 minutes, without compromising on effectiveness.

Is IPL right for you?
Braun Silk-expert IPL is most effective on light to medium skin tones with hair ranging from natural blonde to dark brown or black. The device is least effective on very blonde, red, grey or white hair where the smaller amount of melanin does not absorb the light.

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) and waste batteries must never be placed in your waste disposal or recycling bins. WEEE is taken back free of charge at electrical retail outlets on a one-for-one like-for-like basis. There is a bin for small batteries in your local store. Local authority civic amenity facilities also take back WEEE and waste batteries free of charge. WEEE and waste battery recycling is free.

How to use

Braun Silk-expert works beneath the skin surface by targeting the melanin in the hair follicle, helping to
break the cycle of hair re-growth. With continued, periodic use, the light energy helps prevent unwanted
hair from reaching the skin surface.

Hazards and Cautions

Do not use on scalp, eyebrows or anywhere near or around the eyes. Use in these areas may permanently damage your eyes. Do not use on red, very blonde, grey or white hair. The device is not effective on these hair colors. Do not use on nipples, genitals or around the anus. These areas may have a darker skin color and/or greater hair density and using the device in these areas may cause discomfort/pain or injure your skin. Do not use on dark brown or black spots such as freckles, birthmarks, moles or warts in the treatment area. Do not use on a tattoo or permanent makeup in the treatment area. Do not use on beard / facial hair for men. Do not look directly into the glass filter or attempt to activate the device toward the eyes. To protect the safety of your eyes and those of individuals nearby, the device will only activate when both skin tone sensors are placed against the skin. If at any time the device activates when both sensors are not in contact with the skin, stop use immediately and contact your retailer. Do not use more than once a week on the same area. This will not speed up the results and may increase the chances of injury to your skin. more less
