Braun Silk-expert is a ground-breaking IPL system that gives you permanent visible hair removal – in as little as four treatments.

There are no messy gels, and no complicated colour matching charts. The unique SensoAdapt™ skin tone sensor reads your skin tone 80x a second, and automatically adapts the light intensity. With 300,000 flashes, the Silk-expert IPL system can provide full body treatments for up to 15 years, or up to 35 years on smaller treatment areas such as the lower legs, underarms, and upper lip.

Switch to gliding mode for super smooth legs. And with Normal, Gentle and Extra Gentle settings, it’s ideal for sensitive areas or first time users.

The Braun Silk-expert works by targeting the melanin in the hair follicle, helping to break the cycle of hair regrowth. With continued, regular use, it helps prevent unwanted hair from ever reaching the skin’s surface. In fact, 94% of women experienced noticeable results after just 3 months.

There are no bulbs or batteries to change. You just plug in and start your treatment straight away. It’s the safe and simple way to get salon smooth skin.

Done in a flash. give this 10/10 love it very much. on my Christmas list or birthday list I thing now.

Poor results

Been using for over 6 months, every week without missing any and there is very little effect. I'd say maybe I can go one extra day without shaving? Had no effect on underarms. So expensive and I thought maybe if I never had to buy a razor again it would be worth it but I've still been having to shave this whole time. Very disappointing.

Cordless Please?

On first impressions of the new IPL by Braun it's looks very but luxury, sleek, modern. Both UK and European plug attachment is included although I do wish there was a cap included to protect the skin sensor and laser. Braun also have an App called Silk Expert which is full of information and has a treatment schedule you can set up to keep track of when treatments are due, on first use of the IPL I started with the extra sensitive setting and turned it up when I felt I could tolerate the higher settings. I found it a bit awkward to manuver around the contours of the body as it is attached to the plug lead for charging. After 2-3 treatment I did noticed the hair re growth had slowed down looking forward to a hair free summer 2017

Pain free and easy but results take time

As someone with dark hair and pale skin, I was expecting good results from this device. I have used it on my legs, upper lip and armpits. Using it is virtually pain free, it just feels like a hot pulse even on sensitive areas- a huge improvement on waxing. After 4 weeks of use I have noticed some results, there is definitely less hair growth and so with continued use I am expecting to see a good result. This is definitely a product is oudl recommend for someone like myself who has fast growing dark hair. It is reasonably quick to do, the only promblem is that it is impossible to see where you have already covered so often some spots are missed.

Braun IPL

After using this device for 5 weeks now, I am yet to notice much difference. I have been using it on my upper lip and chin area however, Now the hair were worse than before I even started. I have very pale skin and dark hair so was supposed to be perfect conditions to see actual results but so far I am still waiting. You have to shave the area you wish to use the device on first which I really hated doing. I felt like a man shaving a beard and moustache and to top it all off my hairs are now thicker, darker and courser because of shaving!!! I will continue to use for a full 12 weeks as I am desperate to see results especially as they are now worse than before I started and i would be happy to continue to use if it means I will eventually be hairfree. However if after 12 weeks of use I see now improvement at all then I will stick to hair removal cream and hope that works better

Giving it more time....

I've been using this weekly on my legs, underarms and bikini line, however I haven't noticed much change in any of these areas. It is possible that it requires longer to 'kick in' so to speak, but with pale skin and dark brown hair, I would have expected results by now. I find using the device a bit of a hassle, due to having to shave first, then go over where you've just been to IPL. Over the long term, it's a good investment if it works, however in the short term it's a bit of a chore. Using the device was simple, and the pain was minimal, similar to being touched very briefly by something very hot. It has been difficult at times to keep track of which areas of skin have been treated within a session, particularly with the curvature of the calf. My god you know when you do the same spot twice though! Ouch! Haha. At this stage, I would not recommend this product as I have not seen any noticeable results. I will continue to use the product and hope that I'm just slow to blossom ;)

A bit early to see the results...

The product was a little intimating and when using it on the first treatment I was sure that I was using it wrong - it omitted a bright light and gave me a shock but having checked the instructions I saw that it was supposed to do this. I felt that the instructions were a bit limited and would have loved if there was a video instruction instead. The product was easy to use, however it was quite large and heats up quite a lot whilst you are using it - which is slightly uncomfortable. It was easy to go over the areas and to do legs and underarms took around 30-40 minutes. In the first few weeks I didn’t notice anything but I think with continued use it will make a noticeable difference. Overall I thought the product needed more instructions but it was easy to use and if it gets the desired results I definitely think it is worth using. It’s quick (30-40 minutes a week!) and in the long run would save you a lot on your salon bills and razors.

More than expected

Well, to be honest I was only able to use it 3 times, but wow. Results are there. I normally quite hairy person- can see the difference. and im very pleased. At the beginning the feeling is a bit funny and scary at the same time, but you will get used to it quickly. Funny thing about it is my husband actually asked why cant he use it- if results are so great. Well Braun- maybe a version for gents?:)

Still undecided...

I thought this was the product for me, but I'm finding it hard to fit into a busy lifestyle so after 6 weeks I can't comment on the effectiveness. It is easy to use and relatively quick I just keep forgetting about it. It's also pain free, a little scary at first but it really doesn't hurt. I would say the instructions are a little misleading, as they come in lots of different languages, the pictures they referred to aren't always there! I was able to figure it out though!

I love this!!!

What can I say apart from amazing!!!! I'm so glad I have tried this! Shaving has always been a rush for me with having to kids running around so bathtime for me is never a relaxing thing!! So I thought I'd give this ago as anything to minimise bath time is always a good thing! Well after 4 weeks my legs and bikini are amazing! Still a few little hairs but nothing a couple more treatments won't cure!!! And also the dreaded "tash " has gone completely! Since using silk epile! Thank god for that!!! No more comments from the kids saying "mum you need to do your tash it looks like daddies!" Aren't kids brilliant! Would throughly recommend this product to any one! And I'll defiantly be try more as and when they come out! Well done Braun!!!!

Great product

Having used the braun silk expert on my self 4 times i am able to say i am pleasantly surprised at how effective the product has been so far, i have already started to see results with less hair growth and even some bald patches. I likes how the products designe is very sleek and comfortable to use, with its long lead and no charging means I can use it almost anywhere, the only downside of this product I would say is somtimes it's difficult to use it on smaller ares of the body however I have found that by turning the machine sideways are on an angle helps with this issue. Overall I absalouly love this product and would definitely recommend this product if you want a hair free life .

What a great product and here was me thinking I would have to go to a clinic to get such a professional treatment. Really like this I would prefer if the equipment was cordless for ease of use but only a small thing in comparison to the results you get. Highly recommended

At last a product that gets rid of unwanted hair!

I have been considering laser hair removal treatment for a while. I have thick dark hair so literally a few hours after shaving you can feel the hair growing back. When I did my first treatment with the Braun Silk Expert I was a bit sceptical... could a home laser device really stop hair growth? I have used this product 5 times now and I have already noticed a huge difference! After a week of not shaving my legs the hair growth is more like day 2 of growth before I started using the Braun Silk Expert. Not only that I have patches of hair where the hair has stopped growing completely. On my legs I have been able to use the full power as they are not as sensitive. On my underarms I had to utilise the sensitivity button as it does sting a little. Please do not be put off by the pain, at most you feel a warm zap sensation. I have tried epilating and that is about 10 times more painful then this is. I would definitely recommend this product it is brilliant and is making me more confident!

Fab product

I was so excited to be able to try the Braun silk IPL hair removal system. The unit seemed a little larger than what I expected however I was very impressed with how quiet and light the unit was. I normally epilate but was so excited to try it out that I shaved before hand to make sure that any discomfort was kept to a minimum. I started with a test patch and was expecting a little discomfort, however it just felt hot for a short period which dispersed quickly. I loved the fact that there is a sensitive setting which has been great for starting off. On going I have noticed a reduction and am hoping, ongoing for the regrowth to reduce further. Perfect to start over the winter ready for silky smooth legs next summer. Great for large areas, like legs a little disappointed that the knee area cant really be treated. Overall comfortable to use and cant wait to keep using another great Braun product.

My silky smooth legs

well hapy birthday to me, I arrived home from work on my birthday to find this waiting for me. At least I got one present as my husband had forgotten totally about my birthday. I previously owned the model before this one and did not look forward to using it due to having to use a gel. I tended to get the gel everywhwere. This new model though does not require the use of a gel and for me this is a n amazing improvement. Prior to using a home IPL treatment on my legs I used an epilator and had reached the point where I was getting a bit fed up of it dragging in my skin and shredding it so this new method was revolutionar for me and I would not be without it now. It is easy to use and has given amazing results

Excellent Product

I found this product perfect and comfortable to use, i started the treatment on my legs and i am very pleased with the results, no pain but annoying when the light kept flashing. I can see a huge difference compared to shaving, the hair growth is very little and my legs feel very smooth. The IPL is very easy to use once you have read and understood the instructions. I like the ideas of do this in the comfort of your own home. I would recommend this product, as i think the results are very good and gives you smooth feeling legs.

Great early results

I was so happy to learn that I would be testing this Braun IPL machine. It was really simple to use. I thought it might hurt but it did not hurt at all which surprised me. After 4 weeks of testing I have noticed that my hair is not growing back quite as quickly especially under my arms. My leg hair I haven't noticed as much difference but it is quite time consuming to do such a large area so I think I need to spend more time on this area during each session. I would definitely recommend this product to others and I can't wait to keep using and seeing results over a longer period of time.

Silky Smooth Expert!

I absolutely love this product! I have used it for 4 consecutive weeks now and I can see visible results on my armpits, bikini line and lower leg. The hair is not growing as fast as it normally does, and seems finer, especially under my arms. Its quite easy to use though I have small hands and it is a little bulky, I find the Precision mode very easy to handle. Just make sure you dont look at the product whilst the light flashes as it is very intense! When it does flash there is a momentary hot sensation too but it is not uncomfortable and doesnt burn afterwards. It has different sensitivity settings so you can ensure theres no chance of irritiation. Theres two plug adaptors too so its very versatile and the facial brush is an added benefit. Im looking forward to continued use and throwing my electric shaver away - shaving rash will be a thing of the past too! Thanks Braun x

simple and effective

Using the braun ipl was really easy there are two buttons for intensity and one button which is to be pressed whilst the machine is being used. Over the past 4 weeks i have had to shave less than i usually would and i can see that my hair is growing back at a slower rate than before using the ipl.

Too early to Decide

I was thrilled to receive this and couldn't wait to use it. I think it's extremely easy to use and I have noticed the hair is growing back patchy. I just think this is way to early to give an honest review on the outcome as I don't know what that will be yet. The only thing I will say is that it gets too hot and does actually hurt me sometimes but I may have a faulty item. I would be interested to see if anyone else has had the same problem. I'm still really excited to see the results after 12 weeks.

Slow and steady wins the race

This could be life enhancing. A friend paid ALOT for hair removal, over the 4 weeks I’ve had similar results, not as quick but the price of this product makes me happy to persevere. The product itself, is a bit bulky, that doesn’t cause issues as it still sits comfortably in my hand. Cable is a good length, doesn’t get in the way. I have been using this device for 4 weeks now: Week 1, dived straight in, easy to use following instructions, treatments flew by. I got quicker as weeks progressed! Expected the device to cause some pain/make noise but that wasn’t the case neighbours where spared my screams. By week 3 I was seeing results, if you do try this product be patient. By week 4 the results were obvious, hair regrows in patches, where hair has grown through some simply falls out easily, shaving legs is a quick run over rather than a big mission to not miss bits. A few more weeks needed, but I am glad I found this product, will be recommending to friends.

A fast and easy way to reduce hair growth

I was very excited and full of expectation in trying out Braun IPL and I must say that after 4 weeks of regular use im very pleased with it . The Braun IPL machine arrived in a very stylish box with an extra bonus ( the face cleansing brush .. Wow !!! ) It looked very intuitive to use but to stay on safe side I read the instruction, that are very easy to understand ! So I've started my course of treatment with the ( very useful) applications for iOS and shaving myself . So I've decided to do legs and under arm , the treatment itself is very easy and straightforward to use It feels very comfortable to use and I'm very excited about the sensor incorporated on the Braun IPL as it will detect and adjust to the skin tone , i believe they couldn't make anything easier to use .On my second weeks treatment I started to see a slower hair growth but I'm just seeing the full potential just now , at week 4 I must say that the growth of my hair had reduced immensely

Excellent Product - Great Investment

The Braun silk expert IPL is a fantastic product and I would definitely recommend it. It feels safe and is simple and easy to use in the comfort of your own home. Before my first treatment I was nervous hence I used the new extra sensitive setting but once I started using it there was no pain at all and I completed my legs and underarms in 20 minutes. The light emitted from the device is quite bright but you get used to it after a while. The handle took some getting used to but on my second treatment I felt more confident using the device and the handle felt more comfortable to use in the different areas. After the first two treatments I did not notice much difference in the hair growth but after the third treatment I noticed the hair on my legs and underarms began to grow back slower. Having completed my fourth treatment I am very impressed with the results and feel that with the continued use of the Braun silk expert IPL device I will get the results I want. Definitely worth buying!

A whole new method to hair removal

I started with the patch test. After initially pressing the wrong button & wondering why nothing happened, I got to grips with the device. Patch test clear after 48hrs so I continued with my first full treatment. I found reaching the backs of my legs quite tricky due to having to keep holding the button down in gliding mode, it made for some awkward manoeveres, but after a few treatments now, I'm getting more used to it & finding better ways of reaching them. You do get an initial burst of heat, but this lasts literally seconds. I felt no discomfort either during or after treatment. There can be a faint smell of burnt hair following the treatments, but other than that, I have had no unpleasant experiences. Only a few treatments in, so a few more to go before I should see permanent results, but I am noticing that hair is taking longer to grow back, & seems to be thinning out a bit already, so all in all, seems to be an effective treatment.

Hair free happiness!

I have been trying this for 4 weeks, doing a treatment on legs and a underarms every week. It is so easy to use, light and comfortable to hold. The treatment can be done quickly so it can be fitted in so easily. You have to shave all hair off before you use it but I have noticed that as hairs have grown through they seem to just fall out. Most fall out just through washing etc but the ones that have fallen out while I have been paying attention fill me with joy!!! I am looking forward to hair free legs next Summer. I would definitely recommend this. It isn't cheap but I think it is worth the money especially for those who are conscious about their body hair.

Love It, Love It and Love It.

I was ecstatic when i learned I'd be trying this product and i certainly wasn't disappointed. It wasn't heavy so didn't cause my hand/arm to ache. The results after 4 weeks are astounding, I'm no longer looking like a yeti, Thanks Braun for making me so happy x

Braun silk Expert

So lets get down to the business , I found the device itself its little bit bulky or maybe my hands are to small . Began treatment on my lower legs , I was pleased that there is no pain at all which is great but I was bit annoyed with the laser flashing , my eyes were hurting even though I wasn't looking directly into the light , I think the protective glasses should be included considering the price of the device . Now while working on my shines I found that is very difficult to position the device to make contact with the skin and I don't know if that's even possible but I would suggest o improve the design by making a laser head bit curved so there will be no more issues with getting it around bones :} On the good side alter a 4 treatment I can see a huge difference in my hair growth , my skin feel soother and touchable , and obviously effects lasts little bit longer than after shaving . I think I need few more sessions for longer lasting results.

Braun Silk-Expert IPL BD 5008 with Braun Face faci

I have really enjoyed using the Braun Silk-Expert IPL over the last four weeks & I'm starting to see less hair growth already. I was a little worried before I started my first treatment but I followed all the instructions & found it very comfortable & more importantly, safe to use. The design & packaging are great & the unit itself is very comfortable to hold for any length of time. Mine came with a face cleansing brush which I got to use once before my teenage daughter claimed it!. After shaving as instructed it was surprisingly quick & easy to use. I could do my lower legs in about 40 minutes, although I have got quicker each time I use it. I know it's doing it's magic as my re-growth is now very patchy. If you are thinking of buying one of these I would say go for it, the results have been great so far & it's far better pain wise than waxing & it can be done in the privacy of your own home. Thank you Braun, another great trustworthy product to make my life easier.

Good Results

So far I have used this product for 4 treatments over a 4 week period and I am pleased with the results. First of all it's easy to use (just make sure that you read the instructions first). You have to shave the area of your body that you want to use this product on first and make sure that the area is clean. I tried it on one of my legs and also one of my armpits as I wanted to compare how well this product works to my normal wet shave. I stuck with the gentle setting on this product and there was absolutely zero pain. The only downside is the very bright light that this product emits and trying to see what you are doing without staring directly at the light. Overall there does seem less hair growth after the 4 week period, so I am really excited to see what happens over a longer period. I have tried shaving, waxing and epilating, but this just may be the ultimate in hair removal.

Worthwhile if you're fed up with waxing

Very impressed. A beautiful piece of kit that looks lovely as soon as you take it out of the box. It took me a while to get used to actually using it and getting the angles right and I was a bit nervous at first about pain, but it's all very quick and surprisingly fast too. Well worth taking the time to read the instructions first and I started on a gentle level as my skin is rather sensitive. No adverse reactions noted. Treatment rapid and simple and I have started to see an improvement after several uses. I'd recommend being consistent in its use and I plan to go on using it to see how the results build up and hopefully leave me with permanently smooth legs! It's a great piece of kit and I liked that it's mains powered - could do with a travel case to take it away on hols. Feels robust and high end - something designed to last, and reassuringly high tech. Also far better than faffing around with wax, cream or salon trips, so I'm sold!

Simple and effective

Ok I was very sceptical when I used this IPL device at first after reading many negative reviews of similar products but I am pleased to say my opinion has changed. Really easy to use and with the sensitive setting was kind to my skin. I have used this for 3 treatments now and certainly can see less hair growth and so less shaving so skin softer as not irritated by shaving. Very happy with the results so far and happy to recommend to others.

I can't wait to be completely fuzz free!

I've always wanted to try IPL but I was worried about how it would feel and whether I would actually see any results. I'm so happy I've been able to use the Braun Silk Expert over the past 4 weeks to see how it works for myself! I was pleasantly surprised with how pain free it was to use! To begin with you only need to use it once a week, and the hardest thing was remembering which day to do the treatment! I set a reminder in my phone to make sure I did it on the right day and it didn't take long to do my legs and under my arms. For the first couple of weeks there isn't much noticable difference, but as you go into week 3 and 4 you can really notice that it takes longer for your hair to grow and there are small patches forming where the hair doesn't seem to be coming back. I am so excited to see the continuing results and to be fuzz free! I'll definitely be trying it on other areas of my body too!

My biggest problem has been solved

This machine really works, my body hair just keeps getting lighter and thinner every week. I have had a problem with my face and body hair all my life, as my skin is fair and hair is dark, but at last I shave and don't need to shave again after two days as I used to do, now I have even hair free patches on my legs and arms. The best results I have noticed is on my face, nearly no hair. Just fan tastic.

Braun ipl is

Well I've been using this for three weeks , so far so good I haven't shaved my legs for over three weeks now I have very little remaining hair so the ipl machine does what it says I will need to keep using for few more weeks but I would say well worth money very little effort needed to use . Comfort I would say is very good now and again get a little sting if it catches a hair but not what I would call painful I have been using on face I have had small re growth but again I think I need to use for a few more weeks to give you a more accurate review

My opinion of the Braun Silk-expert has gone from strength to strength, it's been so easy to use and a delight to try out, I have been delighted with the results over the last 4 weeks and I'm so happy with the fact I am seeing less hair grow and at a slower rate than usual. This is a great product and really has changed the way I feel about IPL in a positive way! Thanks Braun.
