Ok, I’m assuming you have come to this page to find out everything you can about the Silk n Sensepil before you go ahead and buy it ? If not then there is probably no point in reading any further.
However, if you want to know whether this popular hair removal system REALLY works then here’s what I am going to discuss…
Firstly I’ll go ahead and explain how the machine removes unwanted hair. After that I’ll reveal some down to earth words from folks who have actually tried it and seen results – good and bad.
This Is How Silkn Works To Remove Unwanted Hair
The silkn sensepil (pronounced Sense appeal) uses light energy known as Home Pulsed Light Technology to permanently remove hair from your face and body. The light energy is absorbed into the hair shaft where it damages and ultimately kills the hair so it can’t grow back.
The product is American FDA (Food & Drug Administration) approved as a safe and effective way to remove hair in the privacy of your own home. There have also been long term clinical trials done by top dermatologists and plastic surgeons in the USA who confirmed that it is safe to use and will remove hair permanently if used correctly.
What To Expect When You Use It
If you have never had a laser hair removal treatment then you may be unsure as to what actually goes on. During each treatment , you will see a very bright light come from the machine (it is not dangerous to look at but you should avoid using the product near your eyes) and feel a mild warmth and tingling sensation.
Also, each time the the light is pulsed you should hear a popping sound, and the inbuilt cooling fan on the device sounds similar to a hairdryer.
The results you can get appear to be quite impressive but the manufacturer is very clear in stating that you must be prepared to put the effort in and give yourself regular treatments if you want to permanently remove the hair.
Noticeable results are typically seen after about four treatments and although many of hairs on the affected area may at first seem to still be there, after about 14 days they will begin to simply fall out.
The reason that the process takes time is that your hair grows in 3 separate stages and the Sensipil treatment is only effective during the growth stage.
However if you are prepared to persist with the treatments and have a few maintenance treatments then you will be rewarded with smooth, hair free skin permanently.
A lot of hair removal products get bad reviews because they can burn or otherwise damage the users skin but the sensipil has a unique sensor that can tell whether your skin is in a suitable range for using the device. If your sin is not suitable the device wont work.
So you can be confident that you will not cause any damage to your skin, which is very reassuring when using it on your face.
Also, if like me you absolutely hate the pain associated with waxing then you definitely should at least try it because although there still is some minor discomfort (beauty is pain!) it is tolerable and feels more like an elastic band lightly hitting the skin.
Laser hair removal treatments at a salon are not only very expensive (costing up to $650 per session), they also take a large chunk out of your busy day however with silk’n hair removal a woman’s legs or man’s chest can be treated in as little as 20 minutes. This is because the active area of the machine is 6 times bigger than other home hair removal systems available on the market.
What Are the Reviews Like?
After researching the feedback customers have given I can confidently report that almost all reviews I have found online have been in favor of the product. It appears that the people who have given bad reviews have either not given the device enough time to be effective (which is also a common complaint in No No Hair Removal Reviews), or have started the treatments on too high a level and slightly burned their skin.
Here is just a small sample of the literally hundreds of positive customer reviews you will find online .
“I read reviews & kicked the idea of buying this around _ its expensive, would I be throwing away money. Laser is even more expensive at salons, but I wasn’t sure if this would work. Ive used it for about 5 sessions – it has reduced hair very much,what has grown back is more sparse and of a softer texture.I think with continued use it will do even more – I have not used it past the 3rd setting yet of the 5 settings. ” Vallarie – Charlotte NC – Skinstore.com
“You need to use this in a semi-dark room, otherwise the light sensor competes with the light source. I’ve used it now for about 5 weeks and am starting to see real results. Excellent news as I could not afford the thousands of dollars I would have to pay to have this done in a medical facility. Good product!”

“This product has worked fine for me. It takes a lot of time to see results, though. In the areas where I consistently use it, I’m seeing much less hair growth. I have used it for several months and I figure it should take about 6-9 months to see completely hair-free zones. I’ve had to buy 2 cartridges and will probably need to buy another 1-2 before it’s all said and done. That does add to the cost of hair-removal treatment. However, I’m happily continuing this because it is a lot cheaper than going to a clinic and I can use it at home at my convenience”.

The Not So Good Side
As far as I can see there are two main negative things about this system. Firstly, it should not be used by people who have dark brown or black skin due to the high levels of pigment in these types of complexion. The skin sensor safety feature on the silkn will determine if your skin colour is suitable and will not enable treatment if your skin is too dark or too tanned.
The other negative aspect is that it does take quite a lot of time to achieve a permanent result. It will take about 4 treatments before you see a noticeable result and each treatment should be done two weeks apart. So you are basically looking at at least 6 weeks before the effects are visible. For some people, this may be too long to wait.
If You Were Thinking Of Buying, Now Is The Time…
