Do not use Silk'n SensEpil on naturally dark skin complexion!
Silk'n SensEpil removes unwanted hair by selectively addressing hair pigment. Varied quantities of pigment also exist in the surrounding tissue of skin. The quantity of pigment in a particular person's skin, which is manifested by their skin complexion, determines the degree of risk they are exposed to using Silk'n SensEpil hair removal device.
Treating dark skin with Silk'n SensEpil can result in adverse effects such as burns, blisters, and skin color changes (hyper- or hypo-pigmentation).
A unique Skin Color Sensor is embedded in Silk'n SensEpil to measure the treated skin complexion at the beginning of each session and occasionally during the session. The Skin Color Sensor ensures that pulses will only be emitted on suitable skin tones.
Silk'n SensEpil works variably on blond, red and gray hairs
Silk'n SensEpil effectively removes darker hair because its effect is directed at the hair pigment. Silk'n SensEpil may not be effective on light hair because it contains smaller quantities of pigment.
However, in clinical trials it was observed that some of the lighter hair users did achieve satisfactory results with Silk'n SensEpil.
Silk'n SensEpil is not recommended for use on the face or neck.
Unlike body hair, most of women's potential facial hair remains inactive and hidden, while only a fraction of it grows and surfaces. Exposing facial hair to the light pulses of Silk'n SensEpil may remove apparent hair but simultaneously stimulate unwanted growth of hidden hair.
Using Silk'n SensEpil to remove facial hair may cause serious eye injury and may stimulate facial hair growth.
