For many people, using Silk’n™ may be their first experience with a light-based device designed for self-treatment. Silk’n™ is simple to use, and treatments go by quickly. During treatment it is normal to experience:
A Flash of Light – The bright light of Silk’n™ will not harm the eyes when applied to non-facial sites, and special eye-protection is not needed when doing Silk’n™ treatments.
A Fan Noise – The cooling fan in Silk’n™ makes noise similar to a hairdryer. This is normal.
A Pop Sound with Each Pulse – When a pulse of HPL™ light is activated, it is normal to hear a subtle pop sound simultaneously with the flash of light.
Moderate Pressure of the Applicator – This is necessary and helpful for placement of adjacent pulses of light.
Sensation of Warmth and Tingling – During each pulse of light it is normal to feel a mild sensation of warmth and tingling from the light energy. Remember it is important to always use low energy settings for initial treatments.
Silk’n™ has been tested in a multi-center clinical study that took place in North America and Israel and involved over 150 female patients.
