Patented HPL™ technology
As a technology exclusive to Silk’n, patented HPL™ or Home Pulsed Light™ has been created to be a permanent hair removal technology that is completely safe for home use. Designed based on salon IPL™, this advanced technology is based on selective photothermolysis theory, where optical light energy is emitted onto an area of the skin, but is only absorbed by the darker melanin pigment of the hair. The hair follicle then absorbs the light energy, transforming it into heat which disables the hair shaft. This results in the hair not being able to grow back and therefore permanent removal of that strand.
There is one big different between how this process is used in HPL™ and IPL™ however, and that is the safety of the technology for home use. With salon IPL™, the energy that is emitted is at a high level for a long period of time. This can tackle the hair follicle and enables it is disabled but can also have a very high risk of also affecting the surrounding area of skin, making it only suitable for use with a professional. HPL™ technology used in Silk’n devices however, are much different. The light energy that is emitted from these use a lower energy but a peak point of high power, so the melanin in the hair is still targeted in the same way but there is far less risk to the skin so is ideal for home use. As a result, HPL™ can be considered some of the safest home permanent hair removal technology available on the market today.

Silk’n knows that everyone's skins is different with their own specific needs, so didn’t want to create a device that was only suitable for one skin type. As a result, the Silk’n Glide Unisex can be used by multiple skin tones in a completely safe and enjoyable way. To cater for this, the Silk’n Glide Unisex has 5 different energy settings so that you can choose the perfect level for you and personalise it to each user. So whether you’re a beginner, have a darker skin tone or want a quick session, there is a energy level perfect for you!
Skin Colour Sensor
Silk’n follow the belief that permanent hair removal should be accessible and safe for as many as possible, sodesigned the Silk’n Glide Unisex to be usable for more skin tones than your regular device of the same nature. It has done this thanks to its advanced technology, changeable power levels and also one of a kind safety features. This makes it great for sharing with a partner, friend or family member as they can still safely use the device without needing to worry, all they need to do is change the settings!
One of the great safety features that has been built into the device for optimum use, is the unique Skin Colour Sensor. This works by automatically detecting the colour of the skin it is being used on the second it comes into contact. If the skin colour is then too dark for the current setting it will immediately stop emitting light pulses so you will never be using a level that is unsafe for your skin tone. This can be especially handy for first time users, those that are unsure of the setting that is right for them or those that can have varying skin tone changes such as after tanning.
What’s more, for extra peace of mind whilst using the Silk’n Glide Unisex, it also includes an extra safety feature that can tell when the skin is in contact with the treatment area and will only emit light pulses when it is. So if you’re worried about using with others around you, about having to waste time turning it on and off to move from one areas of the body to another or if you’re lifestyle means you’re prone to interruptions, your still completely safe whilst using the device.

Directions for use
Before you use your Silk’n Glide Unisex, you need to decide the energy level that is right for you and your skin by checking the skin colour chart specific for this device.
- Plug the adaptor cord into the device socket and then into an electrical outlet.
- Prepare the skin by ensuring the area is shaved (not waxed, plucked or tweezed), clean, dry and free of any products.
- Press the control button. The device will turn on (default set to energy level 1) and a fan sound will begin. When the ‘ready’ light turns on (approximately 1 second after pressing the button) the device is ready to use.
- Set the energy level by repeatedly pressing the control button until you reach your desired level.
- Place the treatment surface onto the skin. When it is in full contact the ready light will start to slowly blink. The device will then automatically detect the colour of your skin and if it is on the correct level it will flash a pulse of light and you may feel a mild sensation of warmth and tingling.
- Continue to pulse or glide until you have covered the area fully. When using a high energy level, as the light flashes are slower, we suggest using the pulsing technique where you work in rows, completing one pulse then moving along in sections. For lower energy levels, as the flashes are more frequent, we suggest using the gliding technique where you slowly glide over the skin, making one motion with the device always touching the skin.
- When you are finished, turn the device off by giving the control button an extended press then remove the adapter from the electrical socket.
For more detailed information on using the device, use on varying skin colours or hair colours and for the expected sessions needed for you, please consult the user manual that accompanies the device.
