Flash&Go Infinity - How it Works
Silk’n hair removal devices are based on HPL™ (Home Pulsed Light) technology, which is a proprietary and patented technology we use to give you lasting hair removal results.
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 destroys the hair so it won’t grow back, while leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. The result is an effective, and virtually painless, treatment.
With the Infinity, we’ve improved on this technology by adding the power of galvanic energy for an even more powerful treatment, destroying deeply rooted, stubborn hair and stimulating your skin, leaving it soft and supple.
How eHPL hair removal technology works
Galvanic energy is delivered through an electrode plate located at the rear of the Infinity device, near the treatment area. When the electrode touches the skin, the skin pores open, allowing optical energy to reach deeply to the root of the hair follicle, giving it access to even the most coarse, stubborn hairs. This energy also stimulates your skin to improve circulation and tone, while allowing for optimal absorption of post-treatment lotion -- perfect for those who struggle with dry, irritated skin.
After every treatment, the number of hairs is reduced, resulting in beautiful, smooth results for life.
What does “long-term hair removal” mean?
The Silk’n Infinity is designed to facilitate the long-term reduction of hair growth. This means, with regular use as directed, you can expect to see fewer and fewer unwanted hairs grow back, ultimately leading to hair-free skin for life.
Will our patented eHPL™ technology work for you?
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 lines, 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 turning on 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 to V on the Fitzpatrick Skin Tone Classification Scale, see diagram) and brown-to black hair and may work on blonde, grey or red hair if there is enough pigment. With five available energy levels, you can choose the level you’re most comfortable with. We recommend starting at level one just until your body gets used to using this type of system.
