Silk’n Infinity Hair Removal Device Progress After 4 Treatments

Hello, hello!

Today I have my first progress report for the Silk’n Infinity Hair Removal Device. I have completed four sessions so far. My initial unboxing and first impressions are here if you’d like to read about that (and the technology itself). [info in italics taken from the Silk’n website]

Just to re-cap – I decided to start testing on my lower leg, bikini line and underarms – all of which I have previously had laser hair removal treatments and needed touch ups. I had nine treatments over the course of about a year and a half – and that was about 8.5 or 9 years ago. I would say that my lower legs are roughly 70 to 75% hair free, underarms and bikini line are roughly 65 to 70% hair free. So I’m not starting at the very beginning.

Here’s what the Silk’n website says about the hair removal plan:

A typical full hair growth cycle may take 18 to 24 months. During this time, multiple hair removal sessions will be required in order to achieve long-lasting hair removal. The efficiency of hair removal varies from person to person according to body area, hair color and how the device is used. Here’s what a typical hair removal plan should look like during a full hair growth cycle:

Treatments 1 to 4: Two weeks apart. Treatments 5 to 7: Four weeks apart. Treatments 8+: Treat as needed, until desired hair removal results are achieved.

 

I have completed my first four treatments and have brief notes on the settings, and how I felt for each session. The machine makes a little zapping sound when it flashes, and you can hear the cooling fan inside the machine. Personally, I don’t think that it hurts at all, it just feels like a little heat pulse to me. I will say that areas where the skin is thinner (ie. underarms, back of the knee, and leg crease / bikini line) feel odd – not painful, just slightly uncomfortable in a weird sort of way. On my legs, it is such a breeze! There are two ways to use the Infinity Hair Removal Device with the pulse and glide methods:

To pulse, press the treatment surface against your skin. Work in rows either across or down the treatment area. The treatment surface creates temporary pressure marks on the treated area so you can see areas you have treated. After each pulse, move the treatment surface to the next spot. Keep doing this pulsing action for the area you are treating. Avoid gaps or overlaps as you use the device.

Gliding is the best technique for treating larger parts of the body. This technique is perfect for leg hair removal, under arm hair removal and treating large sections of the body. To glide, press the treatment surface firmly against your skin and slowly glide over your skin (either across or down as shown in the image). Make sure that the treatment surface is always touching your skin.

Treatment #1 – March 10, I started by doing a patch test at level one to see how it felt, and then proceeded to do my underarms and bikini line at level 2, and my lower legs  at level 3. I felt that this first session was more to test how my skin reacted to the machine, and to get comfortable using the device. It was a little awkward at first, and slow as I was getting used to the process and handling of the device, using the pulse method.

Treatment #2 – March 22, underarms and bikini line done at level 3, lower legs at level 4. I felt like I was starting to get more comfortable with using the device, and was a little bit faster this time, still using the pulse method.

Treatment #3 – April 3, underarms and bikini line done at level 3, lower legs at level 4. Again, this time was faster, getting more comfortable using the device. Started using the gliding method, which was so much faster, and I felt that I has less chance of missing a spot.

Treatment #4 – April 19, underarms, bikini and legs done at level 4. I felt much more comfortable and less awkward using the device with the gliding method.

After four sessions, I do see a reduction in the amount of hair already! Both underarms and lower legs have the most noticeable reduction – I would estimate that I now have approximately 8% to 10% hair remaining for both underarms and legs, and about 12% to 15% remaining for the bikini line.

I will post my next update after treatment #6.

Currently Testing – Silk’n Infinity Hair Removal Device

Hello, hello!

This is a sneak peek at the Infinity Hair Removal Device that the PR team for Silk’n sent to me for testing and review purposes. I’m super excited about this device because I have had laser hair removal sessions about 8.5 to 9 years ago, and was thinking about getting a few “touch up” sessions as I have had some regrowth since then (more on this later).[info in italics taken from the Silk’n website]

One thing I will say – if you choose not to do hair removal that is cool and beautiful. If you choose to do hair removal that is cool and beautiful too. We are all beautiful!

A little bit of detail on eHPL for those that like to nerd it up with me:

In addition to optical light energy found in HPL (home pulsed light), our new eHPL technology uses galvanic energy to open your pores, allowing the Infinity to treat thick, stubborn hairs right at their root even more effectively. With its quartz bulb, the device is able to reload faster than other technologies, allowing for more pulses in a shorter amount of time for speedy treatment that fits your schedule.

So how does it work?

A quartz bulb delivers the optical light pulse, which is directed into the skin. The light energy is absorbed by the pigment in the hair shaft and is transformed into heat. This heat destroys the hair so it won’t grow back, while leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. The result is an effective, and virtually painless, treatment. […] Galvanic energy is delivered through an electrode plate located at the rear of the Infinity device […] When the electrode touches the skin, the skin pores open, allowing optical energy to reach deeply to the root of the hair follicle, giving it access to even the most coarse, stubborn hairs. This energy also stimulates your skin to improve circulation and tone, while allowing for optimal absorption of post-treatment lotion

I had nine treatments over the course of about 1.5 years – and that was about 8.5 to 9 years ago. I would say that my lower legs are roughly 70 to 75% hair free, underarms and bikini line are roughly 65 to 70% hair free. So I’m not starting at the very beginning.

I’ve already done my first treatment, and am due for the second one at the end of the week. The machine is easy to use. I like that it has adjustable intensity settings. I started at the lowest intensity to see how it felt and test how my skin reacted before moving up to a higher setting.

The machine makes a little zapping sound when it flashes, and you can hear the cooling fan inside the machine. Personally, I don’t think that it hurts at all, it just feels like a little heat pulse to me. I will say that areas where the skin is thinner (ie. underarms, back of the knee, and leg crease / bikini line) feel odd – not painful, just slightly uncomfortable in a weird sort of way. On my legs, it was a breeze! And surprisingly quick to do even though I was taking my time to get used to handling the device.

I will be checking in along the way to let you all know my results after every few treatments to let you know my progress, I’m quite excited!

Feel free to ask any questions, and I’ll do my best to answer them.
