In an era when a gadget, of any shape or form, is a must-have accessory (move over, statement necklaces), it’s essential to make a smart, informed decision when you treat yourself to your next gadget.
We all know that smart decisions mean excellent results. A smartphone with a superb camera. A featherweight tablet that fits in all your bags. And in the world of hair removal, this means smooth, silky, hair-free skin. Permanently.
With the festive season fast approaching, we bring you the ultimate hair removal gift guide for you, your BFF, or your loved one.
The World's Fastest Hair Removal Device
Hailed as being the fastest hair removal machine on the market, the SmoothSkin Bare uses the Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) system. It’s a device with an endless amount of flashes and has a remarkable speed - a flash every 0.6 seconds! With over 100 flashes per minute, you can treat your upper legs, lower legs, underarms and bikini line in just 10 minutes.
You can use the stamp or glide method with the SmoothSkin Bare, and it is suitable for use on your face and body. It also has a skin tone sensor that makes sure your skin tone is suitable for treatment. By continuing your treatment plan for your desired area, you can see results in just 4 weeks. Seeing is believing!
The crème de la crème of IPL devices
The brand’s newest device, Pure, is the most powerful IPL device on the market, offering a premium, salon-standard IPL experience.
It comes with all the same safety features at the Bare+ (UV filter and skin sensor) but SmoothSkin Pure also boasts 14 energy settings, 3 treatment modes and emits 130 flashes per minute for silky smooth results that are out of this world.
A fantastic introduction to at-home IPL hair removal
Suited to treat your entire body and face, the Silk’n Jewel is the perfect introduction to home-use hair removal devices. It has 100,000 light pulses and uses the Home Pulsed Light (HPL) system to tackle hair removal. Light pulses are automatic, and you can choose between 5 power levels and adjustable speed settings to treat various areas. It also has a built-in skin colour sensor to detect the suitability of your skin for treatment.
For those who are new to hair removal or if you are looking for an affordable option that gives you salon-standard results, the Silk’n Jewel is an excellent choice.
Advanced eHPL hair removal technology
Silk’n are known for their Home Pulsed Light (HPL) technology, which is a safe, low energy IPL. The Silk’n Infinity uses a more advanced technology: eHPL, which uses Galvanic Energy to open the pores to allow the Optical Energy to reach the hair follicles to disable them permanently. The device comes with 5 energy levels and can remove hair up to twice as quickly.
Designed with 400,000 light pulses, the name Infinity says it all. There is no need for cartridge replacements with this device. It is suitable for all skin colours and nearly all hair colours.
