Braun Silk-expert is not suitable for everyone. It is most effective on light to medium skin tones with hair ranging from natural blonde to dark brown or black. The device is not effective on very blonde, red, grey or white hair where the smaller amount of melanin would not absorb the light energy.
Why isnt IPL suitable for darker skin tones? Since dark skin contains more melanin, it could absorb more than the safe, recommended amount of light energy which may cause discomfort. Do I need to stay out of the sun before IPL? If your skin tone got darker due to artificial or natural tanning and your skin does not suffer from any irritation the Braun Silk-expert IPL device can be used as it will automatically adjust the energy level to the safest and most efficacious level and it will also tell you should your skin have become to dark for treatment. Is it suitable for men to use?
Men can use Braun Silk-expert from the shoulders down (chest, back, arms, stomach, legs). It should not be used on the face, neck or genital area. Use on male beards or facial hair may lead to uneven results.
Is IPL suitable for intimate areas? IPL is safe for use on the bikini line, but it isnt suitable for the genital area where the skin may have a darker colour and where there is a greater hair density, which would absorb more light energy and may cause discomfort. Can I use IPL on my face? Braun Silk-expert is safe for use on the face below the cheekbones.
It shouldnt be used near the eyes and along the forehead. It works effectively on the upper lip, chin and jawline.
We recommend doing a patch test before use. How long will it take to see results?The typical hair growth cycle varies between individuals and could take up to 18-24 months, depending on body area (underarm, lower leg and bikini area can take the most time). Since only hairs in their growing phase are susceptible to treatment with light, it is important to do multiple treatments to achieve continuously smooth skin. For this reason, we recommend a start-up phase of 4-12 weekly treatments to achieve optimum results.
If you no longer see hair growing, you do not need to complete the full 12 weekly treatments. You can switch to maintenance treatments. How often will I have to treat to maintain the hair removal results? After completing your start-up phase, you can continue to treat according to your needs.
Retreat on a per need basis. Some women need to treat once every 1 2 months and some only once every 6 12 months.
How should I care for my skin after IPL? There are no special steps needed after IPL treatment. If you have very sensitive skin you might want to take care to not expose treated skin to additional stress like when using a hot tub or sauna. Do I need to stay out of the sun after IPL?To protect your skin in general you should always use sunscreen (SPF 15 or more recommended) in any case. Only if your skin showed any signs of sensitivity after the IPL treatment like for example redness you should take extra care and rather avoid exposure to sun or tanning booths / solariums.
Can Silk-expert IPL be used by women who are pregnant or teenagers? As the product has not been tested among these groups it should not be used. The Silk-expert IPL lamp will provide 6 years worth of full body treatments.
Do I need to wear goggles? There is no need to wear goggles when using Silk-expert. The skin contact sensors ensure that the device can only be triggered when in contact with the skin and the light visible during treatment is perfectly safe.
