    What is the Silk'n Flash&Go Compact



    More About the Silk'n Flash&Go Compact


    QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

    Ask a Question
    • Can the flash & go compact be used while pregnant and/or breastfeeding?

      We do not recommend using our hair removal devices while you are pregnant or while nursing as it is suggested that you wait until your hormones have stabilized following birth or the last day of nursing. These changes can make you more prone to hyper- or hypo-pigmentation or other reactions as your skin can be more sensitive during this time.

    • Will this work on light hair?

      Our Silk'n hair removal devices are not effective on blonde/white or grey and some shades of red hairs. The device requires pigmentation in the hair for the light to 'find' the hairs, and so without pigment the treatments are ineffective. If the root has pigment it may still work.

    • As I was using the device or began emitting a rapi multicolored pulse, and the unit made no sound. Is my unit out of flashes?

      The Compact comes pre loaded with 150K flashes. The light you are seeing may be the skin tone sensor trying to read your skin tone. Our Customer Support team is available to do some troubleshooting with you. Please reach out to us. Our toll free # is 1-877-367-4556 Mon-Fri 9am-6pm ET.

    • Hi! Id like to know if I can use this product on the pubic area and the labi a majora. Thanks!

      We do not recommended using our Silk’n hair removal devices on nipples and genitals (male or female). We do not recommend treating directly on the genitals as this area has more sensitive skin, as well can has more pigmentation which puts you at a greater risk of an adverse reaction, such as blistering. ​

    • I am very fair skinned however I do have a fair amount of freckles and moles on my legs. Is it dangerous to use this device because of them? Thank you!

      Freckles are not an issue because they are light is pigment and spread out as well as superficial. However, moles tend to be deeper in pigment and raised which makes them more of an concern. Therefore, moles, birthmarks, tattoos or anything that changes the pigment of the skin you would need to apply white medical tape over the area before doing your treatments. We always recommend testing an area on each level before treating the whole area on that level. Depending on the darkness of your freckles you may be able to treat on levels 1, 2 & 3.

    • What is the difference between this model and the compact specifically?

      All of our hair removal devices work in the same way, using identical technology. Therefore, you will receive the same benefit no matter which device you choose.The Flash&GO Express uses a quartz bulb which allows for faster pulses compared to other models. The Express and Compact both are designed to last a lifetime. The benefit of the Flash&Go Express is it saves you time. A treatment session for an entire body is almost cut in half. In addition to optical light energy found in HPL, our new eHPL technology uses galvanic energy to open your pores, allowing the Infinity to treat thick, stubborn hairs right at their root even more effectively.

    • Hi, can it be used on the head? Specifically for people who shave their heads regularly.

      We do not recommend treating on the scalp as our devices are cleared for body and facial use from the cheekbone down.

    • If the machine is built to have lifetime flashes and no refill cartridges, like the compact one, and it runs out of flashes, do we need to purchase another one? Thank you!

    • Can it stop the hair geowth permanently?

    • How much spacing do I do to make sure I’m not missing spots but also not double treating?

      You can use the Glide option to help ensure you are treating each spot. Each time you treat a spot move to the next spot, try not to overlap on the treated area more than once. It is not dangerous however, we don't want your skin to be more sensitive in that area if over treated. The whole part of the treatment window including the skin tone sensor should be flat against the skin.

    • Does this device needs refills of lights?

      No, the Compact Glide does not require refill cartridges. The built-in light in the Compact Glide is equipped with 150,000 pulses which is more that enough to complete your hair removal treatment particularly if you are focussing on small areas like the chin, underarms or bikini line or if you have had professional treatments in the past and are looking for a more cost efficient option for maintenance.

    • if i want to remove hair on my neck/chin do i need to shave those hairs?

      Yes. It is important that you shave before any of the Silk'n hair removal treatments. When you shave you are clearing the path for the HPL optical energy to reach the root of the hair follicle; if there is hair on the surface of the skin, the energy will be wasted on burning that hair off and not getting to the follicle. You can no longer wax or pluck as these methods will break the follicle, disrupting the treatment.
      If you are uncomfortable using a traditional razor on this area you can use small cosmetic scissors or an electric trimmer such as our Silk’n trim.

    How does the Flash&Go Compact work?

    The Silk’n Flash&Go Compact hair removal device uses Silk'n’s proprietary Home Pulsed Light (HPL), an FDA cleared technology that has been proven effective by users all over the world since it was first released in 2009.

    Flash&Go Compact removes unwanted hair in men and women by emitting a pulse of energy which is absorbed by the pigment in the hair shaft. Hairs that are in the active stage of the hair growth cycle are targeted by this energy and disabled, preventing future growth*.

    After a series of treatments, users report less hair growth in the treatment area, and, eventually, hair that stops growing altogether*.

    The Flash&Go Compact’s design makes hair removal treatments fast and easy, allowing you to target all different areas of your body, no matter how big or small. To make treatments even faster there is a gliding method that allows you to just hold down trigger while the device continuously emits pulses, targeting the hair pigment and stopping it from growing back*.

    *Results may vary based on hair or skin type.

    How to Use the Flash&Go Compact Hair Removal Device

    Frequency

    For the first two months, use the Silk’n Flash&Go Compact every other week.

    After a few weeks, once you begin to see meaningful results*, you can maintain those results by using the Flash&Go Compact once a month, or as hair regrows.

    You can learn more about recommended treatments in our FAQ section.

    *Results may vary based on hair or skin type.

    When will I see results?

    After just two to four hair removal treatment sessions with the Flash&Go Compact*, most users start to see less hair – with results that are comparable to professional laser treatments!*

    *Results may vary based on hair or skin type.

    Just look at the results this device achieved during clinical trials:

    • 80% of users experienced a noticeable reduction in hair after three months.
    • 90% preferred using HPL to visiting a spa or salon.
    • 90% said they would recommend HPL to a friend.
    • 90% described HPL as convenient, easy and useful.
      • Hear more from our customers as they share how the Flash&Go Compact has worked for them!

    Q: Does Silk'n Flash&Go Compact really work?

    Yes. In clinical trials led by physicians, Silk'n Flash&Go Compact demonstrated safe, lasting hair removal results*. The Flash&Go Compact has been cleared by the FDA for the removal of unwanted hair and does not require the use of any other supporting products or accessories.

    *Results may vary based on hair or skin type.

    Q: How often do I need to replace the lamp cartridge on my Silk’n Flash&Go Compact?

    Never. The lamp cartridge lasts for 150,000 pulses, which is more than enough pulses to complete hair removal treatments.   

    Q: I have fair skin, why is the skin sensor warning light on?

    Sometimes the skin sensor can be affected by the room in which you are treating. Treatments in a dark room or a room with a bright light (such as a lamp or vanity) can cause the warning light to turn on. This is a result of a shadow being cast on your skin, making it appear darker than it really is. To prevent this from happening, treat in moderate lighting. If you continue to have a problem, make sure the sensor (located beside the yellow applicator light) is flush against the skin. If neither of these solutions resolves the issue, please call our customer service department at 1-877-367-4556.

    Q: What are the Skin Color Sensor and other safety features?

    The Flash&Go Compact hair removal device comes with a built-in Skin Color Sensor that is designed to measure the skin tone of the applied surface and enable application only on suitable skin tones. This unique safety feature will disable treatment if your skin is too dark or too tanned, taking the guesswork out of your hair removal treatments.

    Silk'n’s Flash&Go Compact has been designed with your safety in mind, and tested and approved by top dermatologists and plastic surgeons to meet their safety standards for a home-use device. But, like any skin product or electronic device, one must use it according to the operating instructions and user precautions.

    The applicator tip of Silk'n Flash&Go has been designed so that a light pulse can only be emitted when the applicator is in contact with the skin. This eliminates the possibility of an accidental flash of light directed towards the user's eyes.

    Q: How can I maximize hair removal treatment results?

    Start with clean, shaved skin – never wax or pluck before a treatment.

    Once you have tested all treatment areas on the low energy setting, we recommend you move up to higher levels.

    To start, treat every two weeks. Usually, you will begin seeing results after three or four treatments,* and following that, you can start treating monthly.

    Q: How often should I use the device?

    Hair removal treatment sessions with the Silk'n Flash&Go Compact should be spaced every two weeks for the first three to four sessions. After that, treatments should be done if hairs have re-grown or until you reach the results you desire. The total number of hair removal sessions will differ for each person, but generally most users will notice hair growth has lessened after four treatments, with very good results after six treatments*. Most females will need eight full sessions for complete hair removal results*. Males tend to have hairs that are more stubborn and embedded more deeply, so they may require 10 to 12 treatments.

    *Results may vary based on hair or skin type.

    Q: Is the Flash&Go Compact effective on white, grey or blonde hairs?

    Best hair removal is with darker hair types because this hair has more melanin. (Melanin is the pigment that gives hair and skin color, and absorbs light energy.) Black and dark brown hair respond the best, although brown and light brown hairs will also respond, but typically require a greater number of treatments. Red hair may show some response. White, grey or blonde hairs usually don't respond as well to treatments. However, some users have noted results after multiple treatments*.

    *Results may vary based on hair or skin type.

    Q: Can I use Silk'n Flash&Go Compact on dark brown or black skin?

    Do not use Flash&Go Compact on naturally dark complexions. The Flash&Go Compact removes unwanted hair by selectively targeting your hair’s pigment. Varied quantities of pigment also exist in the surrounding tissue of skin. The quantity of pigment in a person's skin, which is shown by their skin complexion, determines the degree of risk when using the Flash&Go Compact. Treating dark skin can result in adverse effects such as burns, blisters, and skin color changes (called hyper- or hypo-pigmentation). Many other laser and light devices, professionally and at home, also have the same restrictions on naturally dark skin.

    The Flash&Go Compact comes with a built-in Skin Color Sensor that is designed to measure the skin tone of the applied surface and enable application only on suitable skin tones. This unique safety feature will disable treatment if your skin is too dark or too tanned.

     

    Q: Can I use the Flash&Go Compact if I’ve waxed, shaved or used depilatory creams?

    The Flash&Go Compact works best when individuals haven’t waxed, tweezed or used depilatory creams within two weeks of starting treatment*. The Flash&Go Compact targets hair follicles, so when a person has waxed, tweezed or used hair removal cream there is no hair in the hair follicle for the device to target. Please wait two weeks for hair to grow back if you have been waxing, tweezing or using depilatory cream.

    *Results may vary based on hair or skin type.

    Q: When will I see results from the Silk'n Flash&Go Compact?

    Like with any light-based or laser hair removal treatment, you won’t see results right away. But that doesn’t mean things aren’t happening below the surface of your skin.

    Hair grows in three phases and only hairs in their active growth stage can be targeted by the Silk'n Flash&Go Compact device. This is why you need multiple treatments to get the best hair removal results.

    Most individuals will start to see noticeably fewer hairs after four treatments*. You should be sure to increase the energy level of the device at every treatment. Take your time and be consistent during the treatment process. It may look as though hairs are growing back, but many of these will usually fall out after two weeks.*

    *Results may vary based on hair or skin type.

    Q: Will the Silk'n Flash&Go Compact cause any side effects?

    Please be sure to read all instructions before you start at home long-lasting hair removal* treatments with your Silk’n Flash&Go Compact. When used as directed, the chance of Silk’n Flash&Go Compact causing side effects is possible, but not common.

    Most users do report feeling a slight sensation of heat when the pulse of light is emitted. During clinical studies, a small number of users reported a sensation of heat, redness around the hair shaft, and mild swelling. These effects usually subsided within an hour after treatment. For more information on side effects and how to avoid them, please read your Flash&Go Compact manual.

    *Results may vary based on hair or skin type.

    Q: Can men use Silk'n Flash&Go?

    Yes, the Flash&Go Compact is effective method of hair removal in men. But, please note that men’s hair, especially on the chest and back, will require a greater number of treatments than women’s hair to get the best hair removal results*.

    *Results may vary based on hair or skin type.

    Q: Why is my hair growing, even though I treated it a week ago?

    It is quite common for hair to appear to be growing after two weeks of treatments with the Silk’n Flash&Go Compact. This process is known as “ejection” and at around two weeks, you'll see that these hairs simply fall out or slide out with a slight tug* (we don't recommend pulling on the hairs – just let them come out naturally). It is also possible that due to missed treatment or different stages of growth, some hairs were not affected by the Flash&Go Compact hair removal treatment. These hairs will be treated in follow-up sessions, hence the need for multiple treatments to get the best results.

    *Results may vary based on hair or skin type.

    Q: I live in Canada, will I be charged a cross-border tariff?

    No, all orders placed in Canada are shipped from Canada and all orders placed in the USA are shipped from the USA.

    Q: Should I do anything before treating with Silk'n Flash&Go Compact?

    Before you begin your Flash&Go Compact treatment, ensure you have avoided sun exposure on the treated area for at least four weeks. A high-level UV sunscreen (SPF 50+) will help you to shield your skin from the sun’s rays, as will wearing clothes on the treated skin when you’re outdoors. The area to be treated should also be cleaned with mild soap and water, and the hairs shaved down to skin level before you get started.

    Q: Why can't I treat myself if I have a suntan?

    Do not use the Flash&Go Compact on tanned skin or after sun exposure! This applies to all skin types and complexions, including those who don't seem to tan quickly. Tanned skin, particularly following sun exposure, contains large quantities of the pigment melanin. The presence of large quantities of melanin exposes the skin to higher risk of adverse effects when using Flash&Go Compact or any other energy-based treatment. These side effects could include burns, blisters, and/or changes to skin color (called hyper- or hypo-pigmentation).

    If you have concerns, you may consider using test spots (where you flash once and wait 24 hours to see if there are any adverse effects such as redness or above normal heat sensation).

    Q: How long should I wait to treat with Silk'n Flash&Go Compact after unprotected exposure to the sun?

    As noted in the manual, please wait four weeks before treating with Silk'n Flash&Go Compact after unprotected exposure to the sun. However, if there is ever any uncertainty about sun exposure, please contact our customer care department.

    Q: What kind of precautions can I take against sun exposure?

    Please take care to avoid sun exposure before you being treating with your Flash&Go Compact. Use sun protection (e.g. wearing clothes or SPF 50+ sunscreen) continuously for three weeks before and after treatment. 

    Q: What about naturally dark skin complexion?

    Do not use the Silk׳n Flash&Go Compact on naturally dark skin complexion. The Flash&Go Compact removes unwanted hair by selectively addressing hair pigment. Varied quantities of pigment also exist in the surrounding tissue of skin. The quantity of pigment in a particular person’s skin, or skin complexion, determines the degree of risk you are exposed to using the Silk׳n Flash&Go Compact hair removal device.

    As a result, treating dark skin with the Silk׳n Flash&Go Compact and any other hair removal device, can result in adverse effects such as burns, blisters, and skin color changes (pigmentation changes).

    To address this issue, a unique skin color sensor is embedded in the Silk’n Flash&Go to measure the treated skin complexion at the beginning of each hair removal session and occasionally during the session. The skin color sensor ensures that pulses will only be emitted on suitable skin tones taking the guess work out of treatment.

    Q: Is long-term use of the Silk'n Flash&Go Compact dangerous for my skin?

    The use of light and laser energy in aesthetic medicine has been well documented for over 15 years in professional peer-reviewed journals, and by well-respected institutions like the Mayo Clinic. These journals and institutions have not reported any side effects or damage from long-term use of light and laser device for hair removal.

    Q: Do I need special eye protection when using Silk'n Flash&Go Compact?

    Silk'n’s Flash&Go Compact has been designed with eye safety in mind, and special eye protection is not required. The unique safety mechanism of the device’s applicator assures safe and proper treatment on the target hairs only when the applicator tip is placed firmly on the treatment area. Some flashing light will be seen around the side of the treatment area, but is not harmful and is similar to what one sees from a camera flash.
