- Good price for the performance.

The Silk’n Sense uses Home Pulsed Light Technology to remove your body hair. After several uses it leaves your skin hair free and smooth. As you would expect it obeys all the standard rules of laser hair removal. So your skin can’t be too dark, and your hair needs to be dark; not ginger or blond.
The device won’t even work for you if your skin isn’t the right type. It scans your skin type to make sure it’s safe for you to have laser hair removal.
Like the Remington device the Silk’n is connected to a power supply. This means you don’t need to wait around for it to charge. Another similarity with the Remington is that it needs cartridges / lamps. It does come with one but will need replacing after about 750 pulses. This isn’t as much as the Remington but the device as a whole is more efficient. It takes no time at all to treat your legs.
As with the other devices it has several intensity settings. So you can start with a low setting and build your way up.
The results achieved with the Silk’n appear to be very good. In fact, out of all of the devices on Amazon it has some of the most positive customer reviews.
After about 2-3 weeks of use you should begin to see some results. But the more you use the device the better the results. This is because of the way our hair follicles work. People who have used the device for longer report a hair growth reduction of up to 95%. At first you’ll see bald spots begin to appear, and then the more you use it, the more hair growth slows down around the treated area.
For the hair that is left, you probably will still need to shave / pluck but no way near as often. You’ll still need to give yourself top up treatments, however that’s the same with most devices.
The hair that does grow back may be lighter and finer, because the hair follicles producing them have been damaged by the device.
A good all round product. It achieves great results at a very good price. Any negatives are outweighed by the positives. It will save you a good amount of money if you’re always getting hair removal treatments.
Some individuals say that they think the results are the same as you’d get at a professional salon. For such a small device that’s amazing!
