It features a simple interface, skin-tone-friendly performance, adjustable setup, and long-lasting results. This IPL hair removal device makes it more convenient to remove hair in the comforts of your home.

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 4.6 out of 5 by 233.
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 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 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 5 out of 5 by from This is the most effective hair reduction method! I was dubious at first as never tried IPL, with years of waxing and threading, I tried this and it is amazing! After the second attempt I saw a significant reduced hair growth, in my previous hair removing methods the growth would start after a few days. In using Braun IPL after two weeks there was slight growth and hair was much thinner. Please read the instructions and use the product properly on the settings that suit you as then it will work effectively, remember everyone's hair growth is different! In due time the hair will stop growing as the lasers reduce the growth in the follicles.Very pleased with this! No more waxing or threading!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Speechless I was a little skeptical about how well this might work, but I have to say I am shocked at the results. I had a fairly heavy growth of very dark whiskers on my chin and jawline area. I was most concerned with the fact that even if closely shaved, the dark roots/stubble was still visible as a multitude of black dots. So I took a chance on the Silk-expert Pro 5 and am so glad I did! After only 7 treatments, about 75% of the dark hair is gone! Just gone! It has worked well beyond my expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely amazing results. Game changer! I have always had thick course leg hair that needed shaving EVERYDAY. I’ve put up with it until recently when I noticed that I started growing a mustache and chin hairs!!! Apparently for me this is a part of peri-menopause... I asked for this IPL as an anniversary gift from my husband. I have used this every week for 7 weeks and I already can tell a HUGE difference. There is hardly any hair! I’m only shaving once a week now on the night that I laser. This is the best gift. I feel so confident!
