Always Follow Proper Usage Instructions
For starters, it’s important to know that the best way to make sure that you are getting the most out of any product is to diligently follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer. Mishandling a product or using it incorrectly can result in damage to the product, shortened useful life, or less than optimal results.
With your Silk’n at-home aesthetic device, you should always follow the instructions each and every time you use it to ensure that you understand all the different settings and operational functions to get the results you expect. Many Silk’n devices come with features such as adjustable energy settings, automatic modes, manual modes, etc. Knowing how to properly use each function to maximum effect will help provide the best possible experience for you and deliver the amazing results you want to achieve. We have all the user manuals for Silk’n devices available for you to review and download here on our website.
Charging Your Silk’n Devices Properly
Some Silk’n devices come with built-in rechargeable batteries to allow for greater flexibility and convenience in where the devices can be used, as you will not need to have the device continually connected to a wall outlet in order to power it. For example, the Silk’n ReVit Prestige microdermabrasion device operates on battery power provided by a battery pack integrated into the casing of the device. You should always follow the charging instructions to ensure that you get the best performance from the built-in battery pack.
It takes about 3 hours for a completely drained ReVit Prestige battery to fully charge. To charge the device, first ensure that both the device and the charging cradle is completely dry and away from any source of water. Do not use any third-party charging cables or adapters, as they are not guaranteed to be 100% compatible with your device. Once the ReVit Prestige has been fully charged, the LCD screen on the device will show the battery status as full, and you should remove the device from the charging cradle.
How to Correctly Clean Silk’n Devices
Keeping your Silk’n devices clean and sanitized is very simple but does vary depending on the type of device. For example, the ReVit Prestige operates using vastly different technology than light & energy devices such as the Infinity or the Titan. As such, you will need to use different procedures to properly clean each type of device.
How To Clean the Silk’n Infinity IPL Hair Removal Device
The Silk’n Infinity features a very smooth, ergonomic design that is easy to keep clean, but there are some things you’ll want to be very careful about when doing so. First, you’ll want to ensure that you always keep your Infinity away from sources of water, and never ever submerge the device to clean it. This could cause water or moisture to enter the device and damage the inner electronics. In addition, you’ll want to ensure that the device is not plugged in to a power source before you begin the cleaning process.
In order to properly and safely clean your Infinity, simply use a soft, non-abrasive cloth and a small amount of 70% isopropyl alcohol. Never use any type of abrasive fluid or acetone on the Infinity. Gently wipe the treatment surfaces of the device with some alcohol on the cloth to sanitize them, and then allow the alcohol to completely evaporate from the device. Once this is done, we recommend that you now safely store your Infinity back in the original box it came in.
For even greater convenience, you now can purchase the Silk’n Infinity in a bundle with the Silk’n Infinity Cleansing Box, which is the easiest and simplest way to clean and sanitize your Infinity after each use. It uses advanced blue LED light technology to eliminate bacteria and thoroughly sanitize the treatment surface of your Infinity IPL hair removal device in just 6 to 7 minutes. The sleek design of the cleansing cradle is compact and matches the stylish appearance of your Silk’n Infinity.
How to Clean the Silk’n Titan Skin Tightening Device
Cleaning the Titan is done using a similar method to the Infinity. This device should also be cleaned using a soft, non-abrasive cloth and 70% isopropyl alcohol. Your Titan should never come into contact with water or be submerged, nor should you use any type of abrasive cleaning solution, as these things can cause damage to the device.
First, ensure the Silk’n Titan Skin Tightening device is not plugged in to a power source prior to beginning the cleaning process. Next, dampen the cloth with a small amount of the alcohol and gently wipe the treatment surfaces, then allow them to dry completely.
How to Clean the Silk’n ReVit Prestige Microdermabrasion Wand
Your Silk’n ReVit Prestige is very easy to maintain, and requires just a few simple steps to keep it clean and performing perfectly. Before you begin the cleaning process, you’ll want to verify that the device is switched off and the charging cradle is unplugged from a power source. Next, wipe the outer casing of the device and the charging cradle with a soft, non-abrasive cloth that has been slightly dampened with warm water. Allow both components to dry completely.
To clean the microdermabrasion tips of the ReVit Prestige, you’ll need to remove the tip and gently brush away any material from the inside of the tip using the small cleaning brush that was included in the package with your device. This should be done after each treatment session to remove any dead skin cells or debris that were removed from your skin during the treatment. After this has been done, wipe the outside of the tip casings with a damp cloth and allow to dry completely.
Occasionally, you’ll need to replace the filter inside the ReVit Prestige in order to ensure it is operating at peak efficiency and preventing any skin cells from entering the internal mechanism of the device. This is an easy step, and simply requires you to remove the treatment tip from the device to access the filter compartment. Remove the old filter, replace with a new filter, and re-attach the tip. Your Silk’n ReVit Prestige is now ready for use again.
The Best Ways to Store & Protect Your Silk’n Device
After you’ve completed these easy steps and your devices are sparkling clean, perfectly sanitized, and ready for another treatment, you’ll want to store them away properly to protect them and ensure they stay in optimum condition for the next session.
Some devices such as the Silk’n ReVit Prestige, or the Silk’n Infinity if you purchased the bundle with the Cleaning Box, can easily be stored on a countertop in their charging cradle or cleaning box. However, once the devices are fully charged and completely sanitized, the cradle/cleaning box should be unplugged from the power source to avoid unnecessary power consumption or premature battery wear.
Alternatively, if you prefer to store your devices away and off your countertops, the best place to put them is back in their original boxes so you can keep the devices neat and organized with all the included accessories, user manuals, and miscellaneous other pieces that you may have such as extra filters or power cords.
Take Care of Your Silk’n Devices, and They’ll Take Care of You!
As you can see, maintaining your Silk’n at-home aesthetic devices is very easy, and doesn’t require much effort to keep them in tip top shape for a lifetime of beauty treatments. Whether you’re working towards permanently smooth, hair-free skin with your Silk’n Infinity IPL hair removal device, or are turning the clock back on the visible signs of aging with the Silk’n Titan skin tightening device, and the ReVit Prestige microdermabrasion wand keeping them clean and sanitized will help you get perfect results with each treatment.
