The German company Braun was lucky to present the new Silk-expert Pro 5 (PL5137) photopilator in time for the summer season. Details about the new product were told by dermatologist and brand ambassador Elena Podkaminskaya - star of the TV series Kitchen, IP Pirogova and Others.
Silk-expert Pro 5In spring, girls encounter two problems in terms of hair. If they crawl from the head from vitamin deficiency and stress, then on other parts of the body they cheerfully "spike", reminding that soon you will need to look perfect 24/7. There wouldn’t have fallen from the nerves too ...
Many of my friends, unfortunately, went through all circles of hell from shaving with a machine tool and a mercilessly screeching epilator to all kinds of shugaring waxes and expensive lasers. Ideally, many dream that hair removal should be available at home at any time, unlike salon treatments, and not cause as much discomfort as shaving or waxing.
Pro 5 is not Braun's first experience in creating a device that allows you to use IPL at home. The new system has become more functional and more convenient: it ideally combines safety, efficiency and speed with compactness and ease of handling. Silk-expert Pro 5 with IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology works 2 times faster than its predecessor and allows you to conduct a full session in literally 5 minutes. Against the background of a huge number of uncomfortable, outdated and overtly savage methods of hair removal, the photoepilator looks like a real salvation.
Features of the Silk-expert Pro 5 photoepilatorPhotoepilation is the process of removing hair above the surface of the skin using Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology. The device acts with light on the melanin in the hair sacs and preventing the growth of new hair, the device actually puts the process of hair regeneration into sleep mode.
For photoepilation, 2 factors are important - skin and hair color. This method is suitable for most people, except for representatives of the black race (takes 4 out of 5 existing tones). The amount of melanin in the hair is also of great importance: the more it is, the more effective the procedure. The device is ideal for fair-skinned brunettes, but natural blondes are almost useless.
The radiation intensity must be selected to match the skin tone, but even for the same person it is uneven, especially when it comes to tanning. This is where Braun's proprietary technology called SensoAdapt comes to the rescue: a special sensor continuously senses skin tone (80 times per second) and automatically adapts the light intensity to ensure maximum efficiency and safety.
Before you start using the device, you need to shave the hair with a machine and walk it over the skin. Razor, by the way, is included.
The most important question: How fast will hair grow again after hair removal? Firstly, it is worth noting that part of the follicles is in a dormant state. However, after the destruction of active brothers, they will begin to actively make up for losses. In humans, as a rule, in the skin there are 2-4 changes of sleeping-awake bulbs. "Scorched" hairs are likely to recover within a few months or years (this depends on the individual characteristics of the body), while growing thinner and invisible.
“94% of women noted a noticeable result after 4 weeks. 89% of women confirm: a noticeable decrease in the amount of visible hair even 12 months after the last procedure, ”says the Braun website.
Hair can be removed almost everywhere except the area around the eyes, otherwise the retina can be damaged. It is also not recommended for men to use instead of a conventional machine. As for pain, for those who are familiar with the usual epilator or shugaring of the bikini line, a slight tingling from Silk-expert Pro 5 will hardly cause any inconvenience.
Now the device has 2 nozzles that cover the needs of a wide variety of zones: now you do not need to hold 100500 products, because Braun Silk-expert Pro 5 can handle any area, including such complex areas as the upper lip and bikini zone.
An application of the same name will help you keep track of your schedule of procedures, where there are all comprehensive recommendations for using the device. The only negative, so far it is available only in English.
The device works from the mains and is not intended for wet environments. They did not begin to introduce autonomy now fashionable at the expense of accumulators: the epilator would be charged for a long time, and very little was pulled at the effective “speed”.
Another important question: How long is the Silk-expert Pro 5 designed for? The manufacturer indicates 400,000 outbreaks - and this is 22 years of regular treatment of the whole body. In fact, it can even be inherited.
