Silk'n SensEpil -Laser hair removal


 Reference: Silk'n SensEpil
  



What is it?
Silk'n SensEpil™ is an over-the-counter innovation (FDA approved product) that delivers the clinically proven effectiveness of the well-established, market-leading Silk'n™ sold by physicians. This breakthrough product harnesses the power of proprietary Home Pulsed Light™ (HPL™) technology to create a cutting-edge, safe, user-friendly hair-eliminating solution. Look no further if you want a quick, gentle, safe, and affordable way to diminish unwanted body hair. This must-have device and replacement cartridges provide a lifetime of personal treatments at a fraction of the cost of physician office visits.

It is designed for use on legs, arms, underarms, bikini lines, and other areas of the body where hair removal is desired; it is not recommended for use on the face.

Evaluation: 

I bought this product from Amazon.ca after researching for the better deals online. I got mine in pink version. This is the second version. I believe that the first version of Silk'n is in blue. Both version are using the same technology and intended to give the same results.  The second version has an additional safety feature that the product would stop working and give a singal if the area of your skin is too dark (not safe to use).  This product would give a better results for fair skin and dark hair.


My skin colour: Asian yellow undertoned skin (fair-medium)
Hair: Black coarse hair



I tried the product on my lower leg and armpit.

I used to use epilator for hair removal. During the period of using Silk'n SensEpil, I put away the epilator and use the shaver as suggested from Silk'n.

My hair grew so fast.  I could see the hair was coming out the next day I shaved. I pretty much shaved my legs/armpits everyday during the treatments. 


Silk'n suggested to have to a 2-week rest period between treatments. I started to use the level 1 for the 1st treatment, and waited for 2 weeks to start level 2 for the 2nd treatment, and so on for the lower leg. Somehow, I experienced a greater pain using the product for armpit when I switch to the higher level. Therefore, I have been using the level 1 for the armpit since treatment #1.

Results:

After 3rd treatment within 6 weeks, I have noticed that the hair on my lower leg is significantly reduced to almost zero. I was quite hairy before: Some of my follicles have 2-3 hair from one follicle. Also, the tiny dark dots (hair-folliclewhere the hair is coming out) on the skin surface are disappearing/fading. It's definitely an incredible product for hair removal. I will keep continue using it to see if the dark dots will be totally disappeared.

As for the armpit, the result is not that significant. I am not sure if I have been using the epilator for armpit or the energy level is too low for the treatment.


Compared to the treatment cost in the spa/clinic, this product is definitely a good deal and provide significant results.  Also, it provides privacy and convenience.  It is in a portable size.  You can bring it anywhere, just plug it and wait for few minutes and then it's ready to go. 



It only takes five minutes for both armpits and 15 minutes for lower legs.  I would definitely recommend this product for people who are tired of waxing/shaving.

P.S Thanks!

It seems like a really great product and would love to be able to try it, but it's just much too expensive for me to buy it for myself.

I too hate shaving and do not like the hair I have, so I've been using an epilator. Hurts like heck but I'm now starting to get used to it.

Laser Hair Removal is now one of the most common ways to get rid of unwanted hair, and done right, can definitely provide Permanent Hair Removal. Wow great! I'll consider it as my first option.
