The 411 On Braun’s Silk·expert Pro 5
Braun Silk·expert Pro 5, RRP $999 at Shaver Shop
Following on from the brand’s first foray into the world of at-home hair removal, the Braun Silk·expert Pro 5 allows you to bring the beauty clinic into your own home. How does it work? Braun’s new IPL device tackles the issue at the root by targeting the melanin in the hair follicle with light to inhibit the root from producing new hair – effectively putting your regrowth cycle into sleep mode.
The device comes with both a standard head and an additional precision head, so that you can use it on large areas (think: legs or arms) along with small or hard to reach areas (i.e. upper lip or bikini line).
While powerful, the Braun Silk·expert Pro 5 is completely safe. SensoAdapt™ skin tone sensors ensure optimal safety, thanks to sensors which read your skin tone 80x per second continuously and automatically adapting the light intensity.
And did we mention that this new device is two times faster than its predecessor, meaning you can do both your legs in less than five minutes? With a delivery of up to 125 flashes per minute, this thing means business.
How To Use It
First things first: Before you do anything, read through the safety instructions on the box to ensure the device is ready for use. From there, it’s time to get started:
Step 1: Shave the area with a razor. You want your skin to be clean, dry and hair-free.
Step 2: If you’re a beginner, start with the lowest setting and work your way up. The gliding mode triggers more flashes and is ideal for large body parts; meanwhile the stamp mode provides a more precise treatment suitable for smaller and sensitive areas.
Step 3: Results accumulate over time. Continue this process once per week until the desired results are achieved.
