Home Pulsed Light (HPL)
Silkn Flash & Go is a personal combined-energy based device for long-term hair removal. The Silkn Flash & Go is based on Home Puls Light (HPL) technology which is a proprietary and patented technology by Home Skinovations Ltd. Epilation with Home Skinovations proprietary HPL technology is enhanced by a unique acoustic effect that improves the normal process of photoepilation, enabling long term epilation with low level optical energy and no need to cool the skin.
How does it work?
The process of laser and light-based hair removal is well known and established. It has been proven in clinical use around the world for over 15 years as a safe and effective way to achieve long-term hair removal.
Step 1.Before HPL Treatment: Healthy hair follicles with normal hair growth
Step 2.During HPL Pulse for hair removal: Light energy combined with the acoustic effect is selectively absorbed in the hair shaft and disables hair growth.
Immediately After HPL Pulse: Energy is absorbed by the hair follicles while the surrounding tissue remains at normal temperature and hair removal is achieved.
Light based hair removal, HPL Technology
Light-based hair removal technology is based on the theory of selective phototermolysis. In this process, optical energy is used to disable hair growth. In order to achieve this thermal effect, the hair shaft needs to selectively absorb light energy and transform it into heat. This selectivity is achieved since high optical energy delivered to the tissue is mostly absorbed by hair shaft pigment, while the epidermis and the surrounding tissue is actively cooled (by a cooling mechanism). The pigment in the hair shaft that is responsible for the absorption of the light is called melanin and it generates the heat that eventually disables hair growth. When hair growth is disabled, long-term hair removal is achieved.
1. Does Silkn Flash & Go work?
Yes. In clinical trials held by physicians, Silkn Flash & Go was proven to safely achieve excellent hair removal results. Silk'n Flash & Go has the FDA clearance for the removal of unwanted hair. In addition, Flash & Go is not required by FDA clearance to be used with other products.
2. Where on my body can I use Silk'n Flash & Go?
The Silkn Flash & Go device has been designed for body treatments with the most common areas being the legs, underarms, arms and bikini line. Silkn Flash & Go can be used for the treatment of facial hair from the cheek line downwards. Extra caution should be used when treating areas on the face to avoid the eyes and avoid pulsing on red/pink lip line. And as with other parts of the body, care should be taken to avoid sun exposure before and after treatments with Silkn Flash & Go. Acceptable means of sun protection are covering garments or sunscreen (SPF higher than 50) used continuously for 3 weeks before and after treatment.
3. Why does the website say I can use Flash & Go on my face below the cheek bone however my brochure it says it is not recommended for use on the face?
After two years of studying market data we have determined that Silk'n Flash & Go can be used safely on facial areas below the cheek bone. We are currently in the process of reprinting brochures to reflect this change. We apologize if you received a brochure that has not yet been updated, however we hope to inform you of our latest realtime information online.
4. What is the Skin Color Sensor and other safety features?
Flash & Go comes with a built-in SKIN COLOR SENSOR that is designed to measure the skin tone of the applied surface and enable application only on suitable skin tones. This unique safety feature will not enable treatment if your skin is too dark or too tanned taking the guesswork out of treatment.
Silkn Flash & Go has been designed with your safety in mind, and tested and approved by top dermatologists and plastic surgeons to meet their safety standards for a home-use device. But like any skin product or electronic device, one must use according to the operating instructions and user precautions.
The applicator tip of Silkn Flash & Go has been designed so that a light pulse can only be emitted when the applicator is in contact with the skin. This eliminates the possibility of an accidental flash of light directly towards the user's eyes.
5. How can I maximize my treatment results?
-Start with clean, shaven skin - NO WAXING.
-Progress quickly to higher energy levels - once you have tested all treatment areas on the low energy setting we recommend you move up to higher levels.
-Schedule your treatments in two week intervals. Typically you will see results after the 3rd or 4th treatment - after this you can start treating monthly.
6. Will Silkn Flash & Go hurt?
When used properly most users of Silkn Flash & Go & Go report feeling a slight sensation of heat when the pulse of light is emitted. Users with thicker and darker hair may feel slightly more discomfort, but this discomfort subsides once a treatment is completed, and decreases with each treatment as fewer hair follicles are in the treatment area. For your convenience Silkn Flash & Go & Go has five setting levels that can be used according to your sensitivity and desired result.
7. How often should I use Silkn Flash & Go?
Treatment sessions with Silkn Flash & Go should be spaced every two weeks for the first three to four sessions. After that treatments should be done if hairs have grown back, until the desired results are achieved. The total number of sessions varies from person to person, but, in general, most individuals notice a reduction after four treatments, with very good results after six treatments. Most females require eight full sessions. Males tend to have more stubborn and deeper hair and may require ten-twelve treatments.
8. Is Silkn Flash & Go effective on white, grey or blonde hairs?
Silkn Flash & Go treatments work best on darker hair types, or hair that contains more melanin. Melanin is the pigment that gives hair and skin its color, and will absorb light energy. Black and dark brown respond the best, although brown and light brown hairs will also respond but typically require more treatments. Red may show some response. White, grey or blonde hairs usually don't respond as well to treatments though some users have noted results after multiple treatments. For more information on why certain hair types respond better than other please refer to the Silkn Flash & Go & Go instruction manual.
9. Can I use Silkn Flash & Go on brown or black skin?
Do not use Flash & Go on naturally dark skin complexion. Flash & Go removes unwanted hair by selectively addressing hair pigment. Varied quantities of pigment also exist in the surrounding tissue of skin. The quantity of pigment in a particular person's skin, which is manifested by their skin complexion, determines the degree of risk they are exposed to using Flash & Go. Treating dark skin can result in adverse effects such as burns, blisters, and skin color changes (hyper- or hypo-pigmentation). Many other laser and light devices, professionally and at home, also have the same restrictions on naturally dark skin complexion.
Flash & Go comes with a built-in Skin Color Sensor that is designed to measure the skin tone of the applied surface and enable application only on suitable skin tones. This unique safety feature will not enable treatment if your skin is too dark or too tanned.
10. When will I see results from Silkn Flash & Go?
As with any light-based or laser hair removal device, results are not immediate, and in fact you may not think anything happened all. Most users see noticeable reduction after 4 treatments. Each time you treat, you should increase the energy level. It is important to be patient and consistent during your hair removal process as hair may sometimes appear to be growing back after a treatment, but typically after two weeks many of these hairs will simply fall out.
It is important to understand the hair growth cycle. Hair grows in three different stages and only hairs in an active growth stage will be affected by a Silkn Flash & Go treatment. This is one of the main reasons that multiple treatments are required to achieve the desired result.
11. Are there side effects from using Silkn Flash & Go?
Side effects and complications, while possible, are not common if Flash & Go is used according to the instructions and precautions included with the device. Please read these instructions before beginning treatment. In clinical studies a small fraction of users reported some sensation of heat, redness around the hair shaft, and slight swelling. These conditions usually subsided within an hour after treatment. For more information on side-effects and how to avoid them please read the Flash & Go instruction manual.
12. Can a man use Silkn Flash & Go?
Yes, Flash & Go may be used by men, although hairs on men, especially those on the chest, will require more treatments than those of women to get the desired results.
13. Why is my hair growing, even though I treated it a week ago?
It is quite common for hair to appear as if it is still growing up to two weeks after a treatment with Flash & Go. This process is known as "ejection" and at around two-weeks you'll see that these hairs simply fall out or slide out with a slight tug. (We don't however recommend pulling on the hairs – just let them come out naturally.) It is also possible that some hairs, due to missed treatment or different stages of growth, were not affected by the Flash & Go treatment. These hairs will be treated in follow-up sessions, hence the need for multiple treatments in order to get the best results.
14. I've heard that some hairs grow back lighter and finer after light treatment?
This phenomenon is well documented amongst aestheticians and doctors using light and laser devices for hair removal. It is possible that some hairs will grow back lighter and finer after treatment. Usually these hairs are a fraction of what was originally there, and continued treatment may have a desirable effect on them.
15. Why can't I treat myself if I have an "active" suntan?
Do not use Silk'n™ on tanned skin or after sun exposure! Tanned skin particularly following sun exposure, contains large quantities of the pigment Melanin. This applies to all skin types and complexions, including those which don't seem to tan quickly. The presence of large quantities of Melanin exposes the skin to higher risk of adverse effects when using Flash & Go, or any other energy based treatment, including burns, blisters, and skin color changes (hyper- or hypo-pigmentation).
16. Are there any warnings or contraindications for Flash & Go?
Silkn Flash & Go has been purposely designed with your safety in mind, but certain conditions may limit your ability to treat yourself with the device. To fully understand these limitations we recommend that you read the Silkn Flash & Go warnings and contraindications in the Safety Guide.
17. Is long-term use of Silkn Flash & Go dangerous for my skin?
The use of light and laser energy in aesthetic medicine has been well documented for over 15 years in professional peer-reviewed journals, and by well respected institutions like the Mayo Clinic. These journals and institutions have not reported any side-effects or damage from long-term use of light and laser device.
18. How often do I need to replace the lamp cartridge?
The HIGH PERMANCE lamp cartridge life is limited to approximately 1,000 pulse, E.g.750 shots are enough to treat an entire body once, or achieve multiple treatments on the legs only, underarms only, and so on. The warning lights on the Flash & Go control panel will let you know when you are close to, or have reached, the 1,000 pulse limit.
19. Can I use Silkn Flash & Go to remove my chin hair or elsewhere on my face?
Silkn Flash & Go can be used for the treatment of facial hair from the cheek line downwards. Extra caution should be used when treating areas on the face to avoid the eyes. And as with other parts of the body, care should be taken to avoid sun exposure before and after treatments with Silkn Flash & Go & Go. Acceptable means of sun protection are covering garments or sunscreen (SPF higher than 50) used continuously for 3 weeks before and after treatment.
20. How long should I wait to treat with Silkn Flash & Go after unprotected exposure to the sun?
As noted in the manual one should wait 4 weeks before treating with Silkn Flash & Go after unprotected exposure to the sun. However, if there is ever any uncertainty about sun exposure please contact our customer care department.
21. Should I do anything before treating with Silkn Flash & Go?
Before any Silkn Flash & Go treatment it is important to avoid sun exposure on the treated area for at least four weeks. A high level UV Sun Screen (SPF 50+) will help, as will clothing covering the treated area. The area to be treated should also be cleaned with mild soap and water, and the hairs shaved down to skin level.
22. Do I need special eye protection when using Silkn Flash & Go?
Silkn Flash & Go has been designed with eye safety in mind, and special eye protection is not required. The unique safety mechanism of the Flash & Go applicator assures safe and proper treatment on the target hairs only when the applicator tip is placed firmly on the treatment area. Some flashing light will be seen around the side of the treatment area, but is not harmful and similar to what one sees from a camera flash.
23. How should I treat around the lips?
For your safety, it is important to avoid pulsing the Flash & Go lamp on your lips as your lip color is darker than the surrounding skin. Your lips may attract more light and this can cause unwanted side effects. To treat around the lip area we suggest using white surgical tape on your lips to protect your lips.
24. Should I pull the hairs out after treatment?
No, let the hairs gradually fall out on their own. This may take up to 2 weeks.
25.How long does a Silkn Flash & Go treatment session take?
The time can vary depending on the area of the body treated. A two full legs can take up to 30 minutes, or two underarms could take less than 10 minutes. Since Silkn Flash & Go runs on regular electric power it can be used for as long as needed to complete a full treatment of the desired area(s) for hair removal.
