Simplify Your Hair Removal Treatment Routine

Our world is complicated, and, all too often, time seems like a luxury we just don’t have enough of. It can feel daunting to consider starting a new type of hair removal routine in this kind of environment. For many people, it seems easier in the moment just to shave quickly in the shower, even if you have to keep repeating the process and might get a few cuts here and there. Or perhaps you’re simply used to blocking off the time in your schedule for regular appointments to get waxed at the local salon, even though they can be painful, are time consuming and expensive compared to other hair removal methods.

Fortunately, there have been many innovations that have made at-home hair removal treatments quick and easy. Thanks to intense pulsed light (IPL) technology, the hassle has been taken out of the permanent hair removal process. Safe, effective, and efficient permanent hair removal from the comfort of your home no longer has to feel like a dream.

Traditional Hair Removal Treatments

There are, of course, several hair removal options out there that you can choose from. However, common hair removal methods such as shavingwaxing, sugaring, threading, and depilatory creams are not permanent, and they can make a mess out of your bathroom. These methods also carry risks of uncomfortable side effects, as well. Shaving can lead to razor burn, ingrown hair, and cuts. Waxing hurts, and can sometimes cause allergic reactions or rashes. Depilatory creams are often smelly, and can cause redness and skin irritation.

Luckily, at-home IPL devices like the Silk’n Infinity offer many advantages that these other methods can’t deliver, with none of the side effects. In addition, because the Silk’n Infinity offers permanent results, you won’t have the hassle of constantly having to re-treat your skin like you do with those other hair removal methods. The sooner you can get permanent results with a Silk’n IPL device, the sooner you can start using the time you used to spend on traditional hair removal routines for other things that are far more enjoyable!

Silk’n Technology & Usage Basics

Silk’n Infinity IPL devices offer the fastest treatment times of any at-home hair removal device thanks to a combination of technologies that provide greater efficiency, ease-of-use, and effectiveness (see clinical studies section for details).  

Let’s look at each of the main features of the Infinity in more detail to uncover the reason for its remarkable speed and effectiveness.

First, we need to talk about how the Silk’n Infinity is able to produce permanent results. Unlike traditional hair removal methods that work by targeting the hairs themselves by either cutting them (shaving), or pulling them out (waxing, sugaring, epilators, depilatory creams), the Infinity  works by affecting the ability for new hair to grow. Each light pulse produced by the Silk’n Infinity is absorbed by the hair in the treatment area, at which time it is converted from light energy in to heat energy. This heat energy is transferred to the cells surrounding the root of the hair within the follicle, inhibiting their ability to regenerate hair. With each treatment, the effects become more pronounced, until permanent hair removal is achieved.

It's important to note that certain light-based methods of hair removal that use true lasers can come with limitations to their effectiveness based on the combination of hair and skin tone of the person being treated. This is not the case with the Silk’n Infinity. This device can be used for a wider range of skin tones than many other hair removal methods, whereas true laser devices are generally limited to only those users with the highest contrast between their skin and hair. This is because true lasers use only a very narrow portion of the light spectrum in their light beams, whereas IPL devices use a much wider range of visible light.

Once you begin using the device, you will be able to select from two different settings on the Infinity, known as “Pulse” and “Glide”. These settings allow the user to select the optimum mode of treatment based on the size and type of the treatment area. Pulse mode produces one light pulse each time the button is pressed, offering greater precision and effective results on smaller, more focused areas, such as your upper lip or chin. Glide mode is ideal for larger, broader areas, such as your legs, as it automatically produces the light pulses as it passes over the treatment areas. Not many hair removal methods allow users the ability to differentiate between treatment areas in this manner. This is one of the major advantages of permanent hair removal with the Silk’n Infinity.

The Silk’n Infinity further enhances the at-home hair removal experience by incorporating galvanic energy into the treatment, which allows the light pulses to penetrate even further down into your skin with its pulses. The galvanic energy also stimulates the skins natural repair processes, leaving your skin healthier and more resilient. These aspects of the Infinity benefit you both during and after your hair removal treatment sessions, with many users experiencing a reduced need for additional skin care steps. You’ll really just need to moisturize, so we recommend the Silk'n Lux Body Lotion, which provides moisture for up to 24 hours without feeling greasy on your skin. This lotion, which is free of both parabens and fragrances, provides a boost of antioxidants and Vitamin D to your skin. It’s a perfect match for the gentle galvanic energy of the Silk’n Infinity.

The key here is that fewer steps involved in caring for your skin, the more time you’ll save!

Accelerate Your Results & Save More Time

If you’re looking to save even more time by shortening your total treatment cycle, there are some simple things you can do that help boost the effectiveness of your IPL treatment. For example, even the simplest things like drinking more water and eating a balanced diet rich in skin-nourishing vitamins can have a big impact on the overall health of your skin. Water is essential to the health of not just the skin, but our entire body, and our skin needs things like Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, B Vitamins, and beta-carotene to be as resilient, strong, and flexible as possible.

In addition, healthy skin responds better to the hair removal treatments than damaged skin does, so you need to take care to protect your skin from unnecessary damage. If you’re starting your treatments during the summer months, or live in a hot climate, use sunscreen, shade, and light clothing to protect yourself and avoid delays in obtaining the permanent hair removal results you’ve been working towards.  Excessive sun exposure resulting in a sunburn means that you need to wait until your skin has fully healed before you can safely perform your IPL treatments.

Simplifying Permanent Hair Removal

We all need a little bit more simplicity in our lives in a world full of stress and infinite options. If you’re looking for the right hair removal device for you, we suggest the Silk’n Infinity.
