The Venus Silk Expert Hair Remover is manufactured by Braun a Gillette company. It employs IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) also known as Intense Pulsed Light. This method uses pulses of ultra bright light, instead of a laser, to transfer heat through the skin to the hair root and destroy the hair follicle permanently.
The Venus Silk Expert has three built in power modes. Normal power mode is full power and light intensity will adapt to your skin conditions automatically in real time. Gentle mode also adapts to your skin conditions automatically using a lower energy level. Extra Gentle mode reduces the energy level to a minimum and is used for maintenance, beginners or sensitive areas. As with any type of light generating hair remover, always apply sunscreen after use if you will be spending time in the sun. Designed for home use, it is light weight and comfortable to hold. It is so simple to use, you will be applying your first treatment within minutes of opening the box. Just move the Venus Silk Expert over the desired treatment area and in minutes, you're done.
VENUS SILK EXPERT IPL HAIR REMOVAL SPECIFICATIONS
-The Venus Silk Expert is safe and effective on most hair and skin colors. The Silk Expert uses their own SensoAdapt skin tone sensor to set the light intensity automatically taking the guess work out of using the Venus.
-Venus Silk Expert uses IPL or Intense Pulsed Light to disable the hair follicle by heating the hair root with light energy. Other brands of hair removers use IPL or Laser Light to heat the pigment in the hair root.
When comparing the intensity of light output between an IPL device (like Silk'n Flash & Go or Venus Silk Extra) and a laser device, like the Tria laser, you must also consider the size of the treatment area.
Venus Silk Expert's IPL window is larger than Tria's laser output window but the Laser offers 3 times more light energy per pulse. The extra energy kills the hair follicle faster meaning fewer treatments are needed for permanent hair removal. The bottom line is do you want to spend more time on each treatment and use the laser fewer times or spend less time on each application but apply more treatments.
-Venus Silk Expert has a built in skin sensor that automatically adjusts the IPL to the correct level for your skin tone. IPL can also be manually adjusted.
-Because Venus Silk Expert is an IPL unit, it may not work as well as a laser for those with light hair.
-Venus Silk Expert will only flash when tip of unit is touching your skin. Venus Silk Expert has glide mode which allows you to glide the laser while it pulses continuously on the skin which is a real time saver on larger areas.
-Runs on household current.
-Provides approximately 300,000 pulses or 15 years of full body treatments or 35 years used on smaller areas like lower legs, bikini, face, and underarms
-The Venus Silk Expert costs $319.
-100 Day Money Back Guarantee.
