General Q&A

Which is the best permanent home hair removal machine for personal use?
Home hair removal systems are being for quite some time, however, in the recent years’ much improvement has been made in the quality of the products to provide better treatments, more comfortable & quicker.
For those reasons, we recommend Silk’n Flash&Go Infinity which is Silk’n(A well-known market brand) latest system.

Silk’n Flash&Go Infinity uses HPL which is Silk’n own IPL patent. IPL can match better to the user’s specifics condition. Such skin tone and hair color, thickness, and density. Due to its ability to operate on different wavelengths. Because of this removing hair with IPL systems, it is possible to treat various body parts with different conditions. That also means with a variety of skin tone and hair color people can see results using the Silk’n Flash&Go Infinity, compare to the Tria Laser which only white skin tone & brown/dark hair color people can use.

Results and effectiveness may long vary from person to person due to skin color and skin tone. Most devices work best on light brown to dark hair tones. Light hair tones take more treatments or see no results at all.
Some devices such as the Tria Laser can’t be used on dark skin color and on light hair tone (blonde, white, gray, red) The only device that works on all skins colors and hairs tones is the Iluminage Touch. We recommend you visit our comparison page to find the device that is right for you.
While effectiveness is not all promise, the big saving in clinic treatments and ability to send the product back for a refund during the money-back period we think that it might be a safe bet.
Bear in mind that home hair removal uses the same technology use in clinics treatments at the comfort of your home, so it is possible that clinic treatments won’t be effective as well if home devices fail to do so. Following the manual instructions and warning is a must for all users!
