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 198.
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 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 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 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 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 Then best ipl hair removal I have ever used! This has to be one of the best product I have ever used for my skin.. to start with I Have Dry Skin And mostly whatever I use for my body tends to make my body ever dry.. this has helped me so much, as a mom of twins I barely have enough time to shave or wax every month so I was very excited to try this.. I use this weekly and I have seen a difference after using it 3 times.. i noticed that it’s lessen hair growth, and leaves me with soft and smooth skin even though I have the driest skin which is a very big bonus for me .. it doesn’t sting or feel uncomfortable while using it, I highly recommend this to everyone! It’s worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noticeable decrease in hair growth! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've been wanting to get laser hair removal, so I was so excited to try this product. It's so much more convenient to do it at home, plus I'll have it for touch-ups later on, as needed. I was nervous about the pain factor, but it's not as bad as I expected. It even has 3 levels so that you can decrease the intensity for more sensitive areas. After just a few weeks of use, I've definitely noticed a decrease in the hair growing back. I'm very pleased and will continue to use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was hesitant trying a permanent hair removal system, but I am so glad I tried! I decided to test the product on one side of my body (armpit and leg) and compare to the other side over a three week period. I could tell a difference in as little as a week. The amount of hair was reduced compared to the opposite non-hair removal side of the body. After three weeks, I was almost hair free (minus around my knee, I'll need to go over it a little bit more). I started completing the opposite side now as well as my upper lip hair. The product is worth the splurge and extremely user friendly! I can't wait until summer now when I don't have to worry about shaving everyday. I would highly recommend!
