Braun Silk-Expert Pro 5 PL5124 is one of the safest, fastest and most efficient IPL devices for permanent hair reduction in just 4 weeks. It automatically and continuously adapts to your skin tone to ensure optimal balance between efficacy and safety. The latest innovation from Braun can be used to treat unwanted hair on your legs, underarms, arms, bikini line, chest, back and face.
With the additional precision head you are able to tackle smaller, more tricky areas like the face, bikini line or underarms. The device also has three comfort modes, normal, gentle and extra gentle. The gentle and extra gentle settings are ideal for beginners to IPL or when treating sensitive areas, such as underarms or your bikini line.
Using the SensoAdapt™ technology, the device automatically and continuously adapts to your skin tone to ensure optimal balance between efficacy and safety. Skin tone varies across your body, but with 10 intensity levels and built in UV protection, the device detects which setting is perfect for you.
What is IPL?
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light technology. It works by sending pulses of light into the skin, penetrating the hair follicles. After absorbing the light, the hair goes into resting phase and gradually grows back less.
How to use
Braun Silk-Expert Pro 5 PL5124 IPL comes enabled with two modes, gliding and stamp, to give you a truly tailored treatment. The gliding mode triggers more flashes for the fastest treatment, ideal for larger areas, such as your legs which can both be treated in five minutes. The stamp mode provides a more precise treatment suitable for smaller and sensitive areas. Before using the device, you should shave the desired treatment area. Use the device once per week for the first 4-12 weeks. Then continue to IPL every 1-2 months or when needed.
WHO CAN USE THIS DEVICE?
The device is suitable for those with skin tones I-V on the Fitzpatrick Scale. Do not use the device on the darkest skin types, as this may cause discomfort or damage to the skin.
Due to the reduced melanin in the hairs, this device is unsuitable for use on light blonde, red, grey and white hair.
Why we love it
The device has 3 treatment modes: normal, gentle and extra gentle, so it's perfect for beginners or for treating sensitive areas, such as the bikini line or underarms.
There's no need to worry about batteries or recharging the device either, simply plug it into the wall for non-stop power.
