Silk’n Glide Men Only – for an ultra-smooth body!

Silk’n Glide Men Only is exactly what you need for an ultra-smooth body. This device is completely different to other hair removal methods. To start with, it is not a shaver and therefore does not use any blades. Glide Men Only works on the basis of HPL™ (Home Pulsed Light) technology.

This clinically proven method is highly effective at removing unwanted body hair using light pulses. Thousands of men worldwide are already using this technology with great success.

The hair removal process is painless, permanent and causes no irritation, and it leaves the skin feeling unbelievably smooth. IPL is a similar method that has been used in professional salons for many years. Thanks to Silk’n, the home version is now available for men.


Would you like to know exactly how Silk’n Glide Men Only hair removal works? Read the short version below or click on the banners on the right side to find out more!

HPL™ light pulses emitted from the device focus on the melanin (pigment) in the hair. The darker the hair, the more melanin it contains. Generally speaking, Glide Men Only achieves the best results on men with light skin tones and darker hair, but men with lighter hair and light skin tones can also use it to good effect.

The melanin in the hair acts as a type of conductor through which the light is able to reach the hair follicles. Light energy is selectively absorbed by the hair shaft and inhibits hair growth. The individual hairs then gradually fall out, leaving you with ultra-smooth skin. It’s even smoother than shaving or any other home treatment method. All it takes for long-lasting smooth skin is several treatments!

Clinically proven and safe

HPL™ technology by Silk’n Glide Men Only has been used to remove unwanted body hair on men all over the world for many years. This technology has been tested to the extent that 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. Silk’n Glide is recommended by doctors, is clinically proven and has been cleared by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) in the United States. The combination of a built-in skin tone sensor to protect your skin and a safety mechanism to protect your eyes is what makes Glide Men Only a unique and safe hair removal device.


Stubborn hair on your chest, stomach, back, groin, arms or legs – this poses no problem for Glide Men Only. And you can use it in the comfort and privacy of your own home. The device is designed to follow all body contours with ease, thereby ensuring that you don’t miss a spot. Glide Men Only is also ideal for use on a wide range of hair and skin tones. Get ready for ultra-smooth skin all over your body!


Silk’n Glide Men Only contains a good 200,000 light pulses. This means that you can apply a total of 200,000 pulses to the areas of your body requiring treatment.

In general, men’s hair is thicker and more stubborn and requires rather a large number of pulses. This is also the case for treatment sessions involving the back or chest, as these areas have a large surface area.

Thanks to the huge number of pulses in the Glide Men Only device, you can rest assured that you are holding a true feat of modern engineering in your hand. The 200,000 light pulses stored in the Glide Men Only are sufficient for numerous complete treatments of every part of the body. And if you follow the treatment plan, they could last for several years. Glide Men Only does not use expensive refill cartridges as the huge number of pulses renders them unnecessary. As such, there are no additional costs or hidden extras!


We imagine that you probably don’t want every part of your body to be permanently smooth. That’s why the Silk’n Bodygroomer is the perfect solution. This Bodygroomer is included with your Glide Men Only device free of charge. Use it to groom your beard, torso or intimate areas if you’re looking to keep your hair at a respectable length rather than remove it altogether. The Bodygroomer comes with 2 comb attachments to trim your hair to various lengths. Alternatively, use the Bodygroomer without an attachment to shave hair with ease.

The light reaches the hair follicles, while the cooling mechanism prevents the skin from becoming irritated. There’s no pain or irritation involved.

However, you can choose the Gliding method if you want the treatment to be even quicker. You can now literally glide the device over your body.

If you have a darker skin complexion, it is not usually possible to remove hair using light pulses. A light skin tone paired with darker hair is the best combination for this type of treatment. If the skin is too dark, the light pulses cannot distinguish between the skin tone and hair colour. Pulsed light hair removal is often not recommended for men with darker skin tones.

But Silk’n Glide Men Only is different. This device is suitable for use with a wide range of skin tones, including darker complexions. The skin and hair colour chart below shows which skin and hair types are suitable for treatment. Alternatively, check the packaging to see if you fit the bill!

The sun changes your skin tone and gives you a darker complexion. Most salons would advise against light pulsed hair removal if you wish to remove body hair after sunbathing. But Silk’n Glide Men Only is different once again. Suntanned skin is no problem when it comes to removing unwanted hair. All you need to do is set Glide Men Only to energy level 1 (the lowest level). It is recommended to protect your skin at all times when out in the sun. After treatment, apply sun cream with an SPF of 30 to your skin in order to prevent sunburn.

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.
