Developers of the product say that the Silkn removes hair by using IPL (Intense Pulse Light) technology to apply heat and inhibit the hair follicle cells. You use the it by slowly moving it along the area that you want to remove hair. The light energy from the IPL penetrates the skin and acts on the melanin of the hair follicle. Melanin is also present in dark skin and those with very dark skin tones will not respond to laser hair removal.
Silkn Sensepil is about the size of a cell phone. People have said it is a piece of cake to hold and simple to use. Your skin could feel like you have been in a tanning booth after use but this wears off in about an hour. Most reports from users say their was very little or no discomfort.
People using Silkn every 2 weeks have noticeably less hair six weeks after treatment. At the six week mark, more than 50 percent less hair was noticeable, and after 12 weeks, more than 70 percent less hair was noticed. Most dermatologists agree the results are similar to those achieved using a traditional laser treatment.
Some people have a lot of trouble with shaving. Shaving can cause thick stubble with itching, rashes, and ingrown hairs. Nicks and cuts in the skin are also a big problem. But the the IPL process avoids all these problems. Some users report that their hair grows in much finer and slower than it does after shaving. You can also forget the huge mess of waxing. Silk n laser is no mess at all and users say they would easily trade a painful waxing for a few minutes of warmed skin.
The silkn has a no frills cost as well, only about $200. This might seem like a small price compared to waxing frequently and traditionally cost prohibitive office laser treatments. Maintenance is required for the units lamps, but is easily worth it when the amount of hairless time is considered. The IPL unit is considered to be a useful and safe product for home use. It is easy to use and easy to maintain. It is a reasonable price for many people. The dermatologists and developers agree and average people are noticing the astonishing results.
