Permanent Hair Removal for Both Women and Men
Until now, it was difficult to share a single hair removal device with a partner, for example, due to hygienic reasons. The Silk'n Glide Unisex 200,000 is about to change all that, as this hair removal device is specially designed for both women and men. Sharing your device is made easy thanks to the Silk'n Cleansing Box that comes with it. Hair removal treatment has never been more enjoyable. What’s more, you’re done in no time at all: Glide Unisex is up to 2x faster than other HPL™ devices. A full-body treatment takes less than 20 minutes.
NEW: Silk'n Cleansing Box Disinfection System
The Silk'n Cleansing Box disinfection system is a clever invention to disinfect your hair removal device. Simply put the Glide Unisex in the Cleansing Box and your device is thoroughly disinfected within just 6 to 7 minutes. The secret lies in the Cleansing Box’s blue LED light, which is well known for its antibacterial effects.
The bacteria cells absorb this blue light and die. After disinfection your hair removal device is hygienically clean, so sharing your device with your partner, for example, is no longer a problem. This revolutionary system has never appeared on the market before; other brands don’t have anything like it.
The Silk'n Cleansing Box is exclusively available at Silk'n.
Adjustable Speed for Maximum Comfort
The Silk’n Glide Unisex 200,000 features various energy settings that also control the speed of the pulses. Choose the lowest energy setting (1), and the device emits 1 light pulse every second as you glide it over your skin to remove the hair. Or select a higher energy setting to remove unwanted hair from individual spots, pulse by pulse. Whatever you desire, the Glide Unisex ensures you will experience the fastest HPL™ hair removal possible.
Up to 92% Hair Reduction after Completing the Treatment Sessions
Studies show that using Silk’n Glide Unisex 200,000 results in a reduction in unwanted hair of up to 92% after completing the treatment sessions. In addition, the HPL™ technology used by Glide Unisex is patented and clinically proven. The device emits light pulses that penetrate into the hair follicles and cause the hairs to fall out, effectively and painlessly. After just 3-4 sessions, you’ll notice up to 50% fewer hairs, and after the final session you may achieve a reduction in unwanted hair of up to 92%.
200,000 Light Pulses: No Refill Cartridges Necessary
The Silk’n Glide Unisex emits no less than 200,000 pulses of light. Thanks to this vast number of pulses - unlike other devices on the market - you never need refill cartridges, which means big savings. The 200,000 pulses are enough for multiple complete full-body treatments, for both men and women. It is therefore perfect for you both to use. You can store your Glide Unisex in the handy case it comes with and take it with you everywhere you go. Ideal for travel!

Legs, arms, underarms, bikini line, back and chest: the Silk'n Glide Unisex 200,000 can remove unwanted hair from every part of your body with the greatest of ease. The Glide Unisex is also suitable for facial hair. You can carry out the treatments yourself comfortably in your own home. The device has an effective surface area of 3 cm², which makes it equally suited to treating smaller areas such as the upper lip. In combination with the Gliding method, you’re done faster than you think! Read further for more information about the Gliding and Pulsing methods.
Clinically Proven and Safe
Silk'n Glide Unisex 200,000 is safe for your skin and eyes. The HPL™ technology has been clinically tested, which resulted in leading dermatologists deeming Glide Unisex to be a safe, convenient and effective hair removal device 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. The combination of a built-in skin colour sensor to protect your skin and a safety mechanism to protect your eyes is what makes Glide Unisex a unique hair removal device. Cooling gel or protective goggles are not necessary.
Also Suitable for Darker Complexions
Most hair removal devices that use pulses of light are not suitable for hair removal from naturally darker complexions. This is true for most light-based devices that can be used in a home setting. Silk'n Glide Unisex 200,000, however, is different. This hair removal device has been specially designed to treat darker skin complexions as well. The lower energy level to which the Glide Unisex can be adjusted in combination with the unique skin colour sensor make this possible. Consult the skin colour chart below to see if Glide Unisex is suitable for you. You will also find more information about skin colours in the FAQ section.
Also Suitable for Tanned Skin
Are you tanned? Since the skin is then a darker colour, pulsed light hair removal treatment is not normally advisable. But in this case, too, Glide Unisex 200,000 makes all the difference. If you're tanned, the Glide Unisex poses no problems whatsoever. The lowest energy setting (1) is designed specially for safe use after exposure to the sun, or if you’re planning to soak up some sun directly after treatment. You can use Glide Unisex directly after sunbathing without worry, as long as you use the lowest energy setting.
2 Hair Removal Methods and 5 Energy Settings: Gliding and Pulsing
This device has two treatment methods for hair removal: Gliding and Pulsing. The Gliding method emits 1 light pulse each second. The light pulses are emitted by the device in quick succession, allowing you to glide quickly over your skin to remove the hair. The Gliding method is most effective when used on energy setting 1 (the lowest setting) and is ideal for larger areas such as the legs, back or chest.
The Pulsing method is slower than the Gliding method. This method is useful when you want to maintain control over the rhythm of the light pulses. On energy setting 2, 1 light pulse is emitted per 1.25 seconds; on energy setting 3 a pulse occurs every 1.5 seconds; on energy setting 4, every 1.7 seconds and on energy setting 5, the device emits a light pulse every 2 seconds. This is ideal for the precise treatment of small areas such as the upper lip or bikini line.
Schedule Treatments with the Intelligent Silk’n App
Never forget a session again with the intelligent Silk’n App! Conveniently schedule your next hair removal session in your digital planner and the App will automatically remind you when it’s time to use your Silk’n Glide Unisex 200,000.

You can use the App separately by installing it on your and your partner’s phone or tablet. Convenient and multifunctional!
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. Never immerse the device or any of its parts in water!
