What others say about Silk'n Glide 50,000
romfordgirlyI've used it a few times now and its changed my life. Confidence has grown so much since using this product. I reccomend it to anyone.
Silk’n places great value on the safety of its products and, as such, the Silk’n Glide HPL™ technology has undergone extensive clinical trials. The result? Leading dermatologists consider Silk’n Glide to be a safe, convenient and effective hair removal device that can be used in a typical home setting. Besides having been clinically tested with positive results, Silk’n Glide is recommended by physicians and has been cleared by the FDA.
TWO HAIR REMOVAL METHODS: PULSING & GLIDING
Silk’n Glide 50,000 enables two treatment methods: Pulsing and Gliding. The Pulsing method is used to treat every spot individually, one pulse at a time. This is your best option when working with higher energy settings.
The Gliding method is new, unique and ultra-fast. Silk’n Glide can produce individual light pulses at automatic intervals of 1.5 seconds. You can remove hair by simply gliding the device over your skin. This is your best option when working with lower energy settings and when you’re in a hurry!
5 ENERGY LEVELS
Select one of the five Silk’n Glide energy levels. The energy level corresponds with the speed, in which 1 is the lowest and 5 is the highest. The energy setting you select during your treatment will determine the number of light pulses generated. If you use Glide 50,000 on the body parts for which it is intended, its 50,000 light pulses will be enough to produce a lasting result on one user.
ALSO SUITABLE FOR USE ON DARKER COMPLEXIONS
Hair removal with pulsed light is not suitable for people with a naturally dark complexion. However, as opposed to other devices, Silk’n Glide’s energy level can be set to a lower energy level. This allows a wider spectrum of skin colours to be treated, ranging all the way to the darker complexions. Extra safety is offered by a built-in skin colour sensor. Consult the skin colour chart to see if Silk’n Glide is suitable for you. You will also find more information about skin colours in the FAQ section.
SILK’N HAIR AND SKIN COLOR CHART
CAN BE USED AFTER SUN EXPOSURE
Did you know that you may be able to use Silk’n Glide even if you have been exposed to the sun? Generally speaking, pulsed light hair removal is not permitted in combination with recent sun exposure. However, with Silk’n Glide you can continue your hair removal treatment even if you have been exposed to the sun before or plan to do so shortly after the treatment. The lowest energy level (1) of Silk’n Glide was designed specifically for this purpose. You can use Silk’n Glide shortly after exposure to the sun without any worries, as long as you select the lowest energy level for your treatment.
Frequently asked questions
What is Silk’n Glide?
Silk’n Glide is a light based hair removal device. It’s able to remove unwanted hair permanently on the body and face with its HPL™ (Home Pulsed Light) technology. This technology is the home version of IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) used in beauty salons. Silk'n Glide is available in different versions.
How does it work?
Light energy is selectively absorbed in the hair shaft and transformed into heat. This disables hair growing cells in the hair follicle. The surrounding tissue remains at normal temperature. The procedure is safe for your skin. After each treatment, hair growth is reduced.
Is it suitable for everyone?
It is suitable for both women and men. For good results and for your own safety, it is important to understand if your hair and skin colour are suitable for treatment with this device. Please view the Hair and Skin Colour chart on this website. You can also find this chart on each packaging. This device is not designed for everyone's condition, therefore please read the contraindications in the user manual in its entirety before you start your treatments.
Is it effective on white, grey or blond hairs?
It works best on darker hair types, or hair that contains more melanin. Melanin is the pigment which gives hair and skin its colour, and it absorbs light energy. Black and dark brown hair have the best outcome, although brown and light brown hair will also respond positively. However, they typically require more hair removal sessions. Red, white, grey and blond may show some response, but may require more treatments.
On which areas can it be used?
It can be used on the body and face, except for nipples and genitals.
Is it safe?
With Silk’n safety comes first. HPL™ (Home Pulsed Light) technology is able to achieve permanent hair removal results at a fraction of the energy level used in professional light-based hair removal equipment. The low energy used in Silk’n hair removal devices reduces its potential to cause harm or complications, and contributes to your overall safety. All our HPL™ devices are safe for your skin and eyes. The HPL™ technology has been clinically tested, which resulted in leading dermatologists deeming it to be a safe, convenient and effective hair removal method that can be used in a typical home setting. It is recommended by doctors, is clinically proven and has been cleared by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) in the United States. All our HPL™ devices have a built-in skin colour sensor to protect your skin and a safety mechanism to protect your eyes and this makes them unique. Cooling gel or protective goggles are not necessary.
Does the treatment hurt?
Most users report no pain at all or just feeling a slight sensation of heat and tingling when a light pulse is emitted. Users with thicker and darker hairs may feel slightly more discomfort, but this discomfort subsides once the hair removal session is completed. For your convenience this device has five energy levels that can be set according to sensitivity and tolerance.
What is the Skin Colour Sensor?
This is a built-in safety sensor which stops the device from emitting a light pulse if your skin tone is too dark for treatment. The sensor ensures that your skin is being protected.
How long does a treatment take?
The time can vary depending on the area of the body that is treated. A full leg can take up to 22 minutes and one armpit can take 2 minutes. Do you want to remove hair quickly? The Gliding method is unique and ultra-fast. Silk’n Glide can produce individual light pulses at automatic intervals. With this method you can simply glide the device over your skin.
How often should I use it?
Typical hair removal plan during a full hair growth cycle:
Treatments 1-4 – plan two weeks apart.
Treatments 5-7 – plan four weeks apart.
Treatments 8 + – treat as needed, until desired results are achieved. Maintenance: from time to time some upkeep may be needed if growth is still visible.
Why doesn't the device emit a light pulse sometimes?
Make sure that your skin colour is right for treatment. Some areas of your skin can be darker and thus not suitable for treatment. Also make sure that the treatment surface and the Skin Colour Sensor are fully attached to your skin.
For how long should I continue treatment?
A typical full hair growth cycle may take 18-24 months. During this time multiple sessions are required in order to achieve permanent hair removal. The duration of hair removal sessions varies per person according to their body area, hair colour and how the device is used.
When can I expect results?
As with any light-based or laser hair removal device, results are not immediate. In fact, hair may sometimes appear to be growing back after a hair removal session, but typically after two weeks many of these hairs will simply fall out. Additionally, hair grows in three different stages and only hairs in an active growth stage will be affected. Thus, hairs that are not active cannot be targeted. This is one of the main reasons why multiple sessions are required to achieve the desired result.
Why does it work without cartridges?
Silk'n Glide is available in different versions with different numbers of light pulses. As each device contains so many light pulses - enough for many treatments - no cartridges are needed. Therefore, they are not available. So there is no need to ever purchase a refill, saving you even more money!
Can I shave inbetween treatments ?
For beter results and product experience it is recommended to shave before and inbetween treatments. We do not recommend you to wax, because the hair shaft will be removed and therefore cannot be treated.
I do not want to shave my face, what can I do?
If you do not wish to shave your face, we advise you to use a trimmer, or delicate depilating cream.
Why is my hair growing, even though I treated it a week ago?
It is quite common for hair to appear as if it is still growing up to two weeks after a hair removal session. This process is known as “ejection”, and after about two weeks you’ll see that these hairs simply fall out. Please note, do not pull out the treated hairs – just let them fall out naturally.)It is also possible that some hairs, due to missed application or different stages of growth, were not affected by previous treatments. These hairs will be treated in follow-up sessions, hence the reason multiple hair removal sessions are required to achieve the best results.
At what age can it be used?
This device is suitable for adults. If you are not an adult yet, it can be used from the age of 15, but only by or under the supervision of an adult.
Am I allowed to use this device when I am pregnant or nursing?
No, you are not allowed to use this device when your are pregnant or nursing.
How can I clean my device?
You can use Silk'n Cleansing Box (sold separately) to disinfect your device. The blue LED-light actively kills bacteria, which makes sharing your device easy and convenient. It is also advisble to clean your device with a dry, clean cloth and a specially formulated cleaner for electronic equipment. Make sure you clean the treatment surface properly.
