I didn't want to go to a dermatologist or to salons anymore. It's a lot of time and money that you are spending on a something that you can very easily take care of yourself at home.
I find being a student, I'm really busy all the time, so I don't have time to shave everyday or to be making waxing appointments. It's really cool to do the treatments on my schedule and to see the results. I've had to do (treatments) less and less. Now that I don't have to shave or wax, I definitely feel more carefree and a lot more confident know that there is nothing there.*
When I would shave my legs, I would have that 5 o'clock shadow at the end of the day. It was just really frustrating. My treatments with Silk'n were awesome. Last time I shaved? I can't even remember.*
I do my treatments any time of the day, it's quick and easy. Sometimes 5 minutes in the morning, sometimes 5 minutes at night, or if I'm just lounging around watching TV because its so easy to do a treatment. *
Before, I wouldn't wear bikinis because I was so self conscious about my back and my legs. I was always like, "Can I even do anything about it?" Now I'm smoother, there is really no hair, I love it.*
I was wondering if it was too good to be true to be honest. I saw a commercial on TV, I was at home and thought, "Wow, that's a really good deal!" I just had to do it, because it's so cheap compared to a spa appointment. The first time I used it, it was so pain free, it was surprising, it was not what I was expecting. I love this product, I would recommend it to anybody.
Silk’n hair removal devices are based on Home Pulsed Light (HPL) technology which is a proprietary and patented technology that removes your hair unwanted hair.
HPL is safe and effective for long-term hair removal because it uses optical light energy.
A quartz bulb delivers the optical light pulse, which is directed into the skin. The light energy is absorbed by the pigment in the hair shaft and is transformed into heat. This heat disables hair growth effectively while leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. The result is an effective, and painless, hair removal treatment.
The quartz bulb reloads much faster than previous technologies ever could, which delivers more frequent pulses. Meanwhile, at the same time, the custom designed gliding mechanism allows for smooth movement of the Flash&Go Express on all parts of your body.
After a series of treatment, users report less hair growth in the treatment area, and eventually the hair will cease to grow. For more details on treatment schedules and when to expect results, visit our How to Use page.
Traditional hair removal lasers rely on more energy, delivered via a longer pulse, to create the thermal heat effect needed to disable the hair follicle. With HPL, we use only 20% of the energy at a stronger peak power, so we’re able to offer quicker, and safer, results using a shorter pulse of light. This peak power level compensates for the lower energy level by heating the follicle very fast at very high temperatures and, as a result, disables it. Stronger peak power allows users to treat their unwanted hair with less time and less overall heat – for a more comfortable treatment.
Because of the nature of HPL Technology, we’re able to package it into a small device that is easy, convenient and suitable for at home hair removal – while giving the same results you would see at a physician’s office using traditional laser technology. Our unique technique has led to impressive clinical results, and many happy customers. You can read some of their stories in the Testimonials tab.
The Silk’n hair removal device is safe and effective for women and men. It is designed for use on the face (cheekbones down), legs, arms, underarms, bikini line, and other areas of the body where unwanted hair grows.
Our patented HPL technology is best suited for lighter skin tones and darker hair. Our built-in skin color sensor prevents the device from flashing if the skin tone is too dark to treat. That means if your skin is too dark for the level you’ve chosen, there’s an automatic failsafe built in to prevent any damage to your skin.
This beauty tool is ideal for use with lighter skin tones (I - IV on the Fitzpatrick Skin Tone Classification Scale) and brown to black hair. With five available energy levels, you can choose the level you’re most comfortable with. We recommend starting at level 1 and gradually increasing levels as you progress through your treatments.
Dark or tanned skin – The optical light turns to heat when in contact with dark pigment. The safety sensor will prevent the device from flashing on dark skin. Avoid treating any dark pigmented areas (tattoos, moles etc.) as well as skin that has been exposed to the sun.
Blonde, grey or white hair – Individuals with these colors lack pigment in their hair and are not candidates for treatment.
This product has been clinically tested, FDA- and Health Canada-cleared, and has been successfully used by millions of customers in dozens of countries around the world.
Silk’n body hair removal is simple, safe and effective. Here’s how to use your Flash&Go Express for fast, painless, easy hair removal. When used as directed, you may start to see results in as early as two treatments!*
*Results may vary based on hair or skin type.
Start by using your hair removal device once every two weeks for the first four to five sessions. After that you will only need to treat the target area once a month, or as needed. Most users begin to see hair removal results with their Silk’n system in about three to four sessions (or about six to eight weeks). After this time, you will notice dramatic changes in your hair structure: it will become much finer and much thinner. You will also notice that the growth pattern will slow dramatically. Full hair removal can take up to six months.*
*Results may vary based on hair or skin type.

Curious to learn more about the Silk’n Flash&Go Express hair removal device? Read through our frequently asked questions below.
Yes. In clinical trials held by physicians, Silk'n Flash&Go Express was proven to safely achieve excellent hair removal results. Our hair removal devices have been cleared by the FDA and Health Canada for the removal of unwanted hair for men & women.
In addition, the product is not required by the FDA to be used with any other products or accessories – which means it is indicated for use, safely, on its own for facial & body hair removal.
The time can vary depending on the area of the body being treated. Just remember, the device does not require batteries, it can be used for any length of time. You should never feel rushed to complete a full treatment of the desired area.
The Flash&Go Express is the fastest unit on the market and a full body treatment could be completed in minutes, saving you time with the same excellent results. For full details on treatment cycles, visit our How to Use page.
Hair removal treatment sessions with all Silk’n hair removal products should be spaced every two weeks for the first three to four sessions.
After that, treatments should be resumed if hairs have grown back and until the desired results are achieved. The total number of sessions varies from person to person, but in general, most individuals notice a reduction after four treatments, with very good results after six treatments. Most females require eight full sessions while males tend to have more stubborn and deeper hairs, and may require ten to twelve treatments.
Before you begin your treatment, it is important to first remove the hair on the surface of the skin while keeping the root of the hair intact. For this reason, before you begin to use your Flash&Go Express, we recommend shaving -- not waxing or plucking the hairs, or using chemical depilatory creams, which remove the follicle, thus compromising the results.
We recommend shaving because, if there is hair on the surface of the skin, the Flash&Go Express will simply burn the hair off and not get to the follicle, leaving the treatment ineffective. Therefore, it is always best to treat on freshly shaven skin.
Please allow two weeks for hair to grow back if you have been waxing, tweezing or using depilatory cream before shaving the desired treatment area and beginning your Flash& Go Express treatments.
If you are not comfortable shaving your face (or any other body area), you can also clip or trim the hair as close as possible to your skin using cosmetic scissors or an electric trimmer before treatments. You can purchase the Silk'n Trim precision electric trimmer for this purpose.
As with any light-based or laser hair removal device, results are not immediate (though it would be nice!). In fact, you may not think anything happened at all.
Most users see noticeable reduction after four treatments – or about two months of use. Each time you treat, you should increase the energy level. It is important to be patient and consistent during your hair removal process as hair may sometimes appear to be growing back after a treatment, but many of these hairs will typically fall out after two weeks.
It is also important to understand the hair growth cycle. Hair grows in three different stages and only hairs in an active growth stage will be affected by a Silk'n Flash&Go Express treatment. This is one of the main reasons that multiple treatments are required to achieve the desired result.
1. Start with clean, freshly shaven skin - NO WAXING or PLUCKING.
2. Progress quickly to high energy levels: once you have tested all treatment areas on the low energy setting, we recommend moving to the highest energy level that you can tolerate and/or that is safe for your skin type.
3. Stick to your treatment schedule for the best chance at catching your hairs in the active stage of growth. Typically, you will see results after the third or fourth treatment, and after this, you can start treating monthly, and then, on an as-needed basis.
For an easy and convenient way to keep track of your schedule, you may wish to download our free Silk’n app, now available in the Google Play or iTunes app store.
No, it is best to let the hairs gradually fall out on their own (which may take up to two weeks), or shave the hairs as much as desired in between treatments.
Yes, all of our hair removal products can be used on the face, below the cheekbones only.
This means it is not recommended for use on the eyebrows or hairline, but certainly it is recommended for upper lip hair removal. The Flash & Go Express also gives great results for other sensitive areas of the face, including cheeks, sideburns, chin/jawline, and neck areas.
Be sure to read the user manual when you receive your product to fully familiarize yourself with the treatments and technology. For your safety, it is important to avoid pulsing directly on your lips as your lip colour is darker and more sensitive than the surrounding skin. Your lips may attract more light and this can cause unwanted side effects. To treat around the lip area, we suggest rolling in your lips, or covering them with white surgical tape or a white cloth to prevent accidental flashes on that area.
It’s also safe to use as directed for back hair removal and bikini line hair removal.
I've heard that some hairs grow back lighter and finer after light treatment. Is this true?
This phenomenon is well documented among aestheticians and doctors using light and laser devices for hair removal. It is possible that some hairs will grow back lighter and finer after treatment. Usually, these hairs are a fraction of what was originally there, and continued treatment may have the desired effect.
All Silk’n hair removal devices use HPL technology – a flash is emitted which targets hair’s pigment, before converting into heat. Since the light cannot differentiate between skin or hair pigmentation, if the skin is dark, the flash may immediately be drawn to it and may result in adverse reactions.
Please refer to the Fitzpatrick scale found on our How it Works page to ensure you are a suitable candidate before purchasing your hair removal device.
If you think your skin tone falls within the suitable range, you should still use your device with caution; we recommend doing a couple of test flashes with each level, on each area that you plan to treat. For example, if you want to treat your legs, start at Level 1 and do a couple of flashes on your legs. Wait 24 to 48 hrs and if you do not get a reaction, you should be okay to treat this area at this level. Again, you should follow this protocol with each area, at each level, to determine which level you are able to tolerate.
Please also keep in mind during the summer months, extra caution should be taken to protect and cover up any areas being treated from the sun, regardless of your skin tone. Many individuals take a break during this season because their skin darkens from exposure to the sun’s rays.
Please see our website or your hair removal device manual for full details on sun/artificial tanning.
Yes, all of our HPL hair removal devices can be used by men. But, please note that male facial hair can be especially difficult to treat and it may not give you the look you desire. The end result will be that of unnaturally smooth skin, not a freshly shaven appearance.
Treating the neck and back, however, has been proven to be quite successful for men – leaving a natural hair-free appearance. Facial and chest hairs will require more treatments than those of women to get the full results.
We recommend that adolescents wait until they are at least 16 years old before starting treatments with any of our hair removal devices. Due to the hormonal changes that the body goes through during puberty, treatments may be less effective during this period. There is no maximum age limit to who can use the device, but keep in mind that treatments will be less effective on grey hairs.
We do not recommend using the Flash&Go Express over tattooed skin, or raised moles, freckles, or beauty marks. To treat around these areas, we suggest covering the section of your skin with white surgical tape or a white cloth to prevent accidental flashes. Please consult your device manual for a full list of contraindications and recommendations for your device, or contact us for assistance
