HOW IT WORKS
Intense Pulse Light (IPL) is a progressive treatment that offers permanent hair reduction. It delivers a spectrum of light to the root of the hair via the melanin. This stimulation disables the follicle and inhibits the root to produce new hair.
As hairs grow within a hair growth cycle, a start-up phase of 4-12 weekly treatments is recommended with Braun IPL. If you no longer see hair growing, you can switch to monthly maintenance treatments.
Braun Silk-expert Pro 5 IPL takes just 4 weeks to achieve visible hair reduction, with smooth skin for up to 6 months.³⁴ This IPL automatically adapts the light intensity to your skin tone and flashes up to every 0.5 seconds, making it the safest, fastest and most efficient IPL.¹
HOW TO USE
Step 1: Shave all visible hair in treatment area with the Venus razor.
Step 2: Pick the right attachment head for your treatment area. Standard head for underarms and larger body areas (legs, arms, chest)
Precision head for smaller, sensitive areas like the face and bikini
Step 3: Place the nozzle in full contact with your skin.
Step 4: For larger body areas use gliding mode - hold down the button and treat along your skin. For smaller areas use stamp mode - press and release the button. For sensitive areas or if it’s your first time, you can use the gentle or extra gentle mode.
Step 5: Treat once a week for 4-12 weeks. Followed by a monthly maintenance treatment as needed.
IS IPL RIGHT FOR ME?
Dark hair and fair skin are the perfect combination to get the most effective IPL results. The colour contrast between the hair and skin helps the IPL device to interact with the melanin pigments effectively.
IPL hair removal works on brown, dark blonde, dark brown, or black hair – but using the same treatment on very blonde, red, or white hair won’t be effective. Braun Silk-expert Pro 5 IPL automatically adjusts the intensity level at every flash, meaning it’s safe for most skin tones, including dark brown.
¹Efficiency based on the combination of window size, speed and energy. Safety technology shared with Cyden.
²Tested on lower legs, armpits & bikini, following the treatment schedule. Individual results may vary.
³74% hair reduction after 12 weekly treatments (combined value for bikini, leg, axilla). Individual results may vary.
