Key Features

  • Braun Silk-Expert Pro 5 IPL Hair Removal delivers up to 400,000 flashes, equivalent to full body treatments for up to 22 years.
  • For safe and efficient hair removal, the Silk-Expert Pro 5’s built-in SensoAdapt sensor monitors your skin tone and adjusts its light intensity of up to 10 levels.
  • Its angled precision head allows you to glide around tricky areas of your body such as your face, underarms, and bikini lines. At the same time, its gentle settings reduce the energy level for beginners or sensitive areas.
  • It has a stamp mode feature to get a more efficient treatment, suitable for smaller, sensitive sections of your body.
  • Its gliding mode delivers faster treatment sessions in less than five minutes and triggers more flashes at the lowest energy level. Great to use on legs, chest, and back parts.
  • With its three comfort modes (regular, gentle, and extra gentle), you have the option to reduce the energy level for treating any parts of your body, especially the sensitive areas.
  • The Silk-Expert Pro 5 IPL Hair Removal is skin-safe and dermatologically recommended by a leading international skin health organization working with dermatologists and scientists.

Braun Silk-Expert Pro 5 IPL Hair Removal System is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 255.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have! I bought this product about a year ago and have been using it religiously and exactly according to the instructions. The effect is real! My legs are clean and smooth everyday of the month and I don't have to worry about shaving everyday or waxing every two weeks. The same is true about my underarms. This device has made my life much easier and is saving me a lot of time that I can spend on more useful activities than waxing! Braun customer service is great too! After some time, the precision head of my device was cracked without even being used. I contacted the customer service and they immediately sent me a new head. I 100% recommend this product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for black girls I'm black, but relatively fair skin, and still struggled with this IPL. The detector found it hard to detect the hair on my skin even though I have strawberry spots and my hair is not fine at all. I thought I could use this on my bikini line, but this IPL refused to detect the difference between the hair and skin in that region altogether.
All-in-all, it is a decent product, but only for a limited range of customers and odds are, you're better sticking to whatever form of hair removal has worked for you in the past instead of purchasing a product that costs as much as a vintage designer bag. Priorities lol

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should have done this sooner I have light skin and dark, coarse hair that I've always been self- conscious about. I was to the point that I had to epilate so that shaving was effective because the hair on my legs was so dense. I'm on my third treatment on my legs and most of it has stopped growing. This machine has so many safety mechanisms that I don't worry that I'm going to burn my skin. It doesn't hurt (especially if you've endured epilation or waxing) and I've experienced NO post treatment irritation or ingrown hairs (again, unlike I do with epilation or waxing). If you're considering a purchase, do it. Your only regret will be not doing it sooner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life changing I suffer from pcos, so the hair all over my body is excessive, coarse and dark,like a man. I have tried every hair removal method since the age of 12. Nothing has worked as well as this ipl machine. I have sensitive medium toned skin, so I would always get ingrown hairs and razor burns. I am shocked, everywhere I've treated the hair is gone. Since my hair was so thick, it took 8 applications to get full results. If you're on the fence, just get it. I know I was and I'm so happy I purchased this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing results!! I’ve been using the IPL for about 8 weeks and I’m shocked at how well it has worked. When I bought it I was skeptical how well it would work, but I’m so glad I bought it!! I had to shave every day and would have stubble by bedtime. I could see the hair even after shaving in the pores. I absolutely hated how hairy I was!! I gave in and bought this after I had a hysterectomy and had to take hormones that made my facial hair worse. I only wish I would have bought one sooner! If you are thinking about it just do it you will be so happy you gave it a try!! I’ve even started to use it on my husbands back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] As someone who has done professional laser treatments, I was expecting results to be middling ... at best. And boy was I wrong. I've been using this on my legs and underarms and have seen great results. It does require consistency - but once you do 1-2 treatments you really see the results and I'd argue that it doesn't take that much time. Only caveat here is that I have the perfect skin/hair combo for this to work (pale skin, dark hair) - but would expect you'd get similar results if you had the same.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've always wanted to buy one of these. I used to work at a laser hair removal clinic and got a few treatments done while working there. So I know what it should feel like and how it should work. I have done my legs and armpits around 5x since receiving this item. Leg hair has defined slowed down as far as growing back it's very much still there though. It takes about a week for me to feel hairs when it used to be about 3-4 days. It does have a slight pain factor but based on how high you put the device. For legs I started at 1 for a few weeks then went to 5 and now I do 10 and it's tolerable in that area. Hands down I would recommend this

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It really works I got my Pro IPL a month ago and the results I'm having are wonderful. Even my skeptical husband is surprised. The only reason I'm not giving a 5 star is because instructions are not really detailed. Specially the cleaning and maintenance part. The head of my product is getting black spots and instructions just say "clean right" away but don't explain how and I haven't been able to remove them. And each time I use it it gets more and more and can't do much . I'm worried the performance is going to go bad after a while

Questions & Answers

what will this IPL treatment have on body freckles? will it make it darker/lighter by any chance?

Asked by: quikquestion
Hi there. Thanks for your question. The manufacturer does not recommend using the device near freckles as this can cause irritation and injury due to the pigmentation of the freckle being darker than your standard skin tone. Hope this helps with your query.

What skin tone does it work on I got brown skin tone I heard IPL machines only works on fair skin tones ?

Asked by: Tina
Thanks for your question Tina. It is safe to use on light to medium dark skin tones (Fitzpatrick skin types I to V). Not safe for the darkest skin (type VI) or on dark freckles and moles. It also works on black to dark blonde hair. Not effective on light blonde, red and grey/white hair. Hope this helps!
