Very disappointing. Does not work.

Comments about Silk'n Online Only Flash & Go Express 300 Permanent Hair Removal Device:

I purchased this last spring and have followed the directions. My skin is very pale and my hair is brown.
It is easy to operate but with no difference in hair growth, what is the point.
I used it every two weeks, then every week for a long period of time and it made no difference.
I have given this product nearly a year to prove itself and it has not done the job, not even a bit.
I wish I could be reimbursed for this. Big regrets on such an expensive useless gadget.

Don't Waste Your Money!

Comments about Silk'n Online Only Flash & Go Express 300 Permanent Hair Removal Device:

I had high hopes for the Silk'n Flash & Go Express, but it has not delivered. I've been using it for months at the highest setting, per the listed instructions (and even more frequently), and although the hair growth has slowed, it definitely has not stopped it at all.
I decided to focus just on my underarms so I could really notice if it was working. I would compare my skin tone and hair color to Alicia Silverstone - pretty fair, not crazy thick or dark hair, but my underarms have darker (think eyebrow color) hair.
I used to have to shave every day. Now it's every other day. I guess that's an improvement, but for the time and money I invested in this, it's not worth it to me. Maybe if my hair was very, very dark I would have seen a better result, but I doubt it. If you're really serious about permanent hair removal, you're going to have to have it professionally done - I give up on the "at-home" movement until the technology is actually available (and safe).

      Does it effect tattoos? My husband has a a large back piece but laser removal hair treatments were not recommended for him because it will lighten tattoos. Any one use this over tattoos and if so what were your results? Thank you!

      I LOVE my Flash & Go!! I've been treating my underarms, bikini & full legs. It is easy to use & the results have been phenomenal. I used to visit a clinic monthly but the Flash&Go has totally replaced those treatments.

      THIS WORKS!!!

      By Warisa

      from Regina, SK, Canada

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Silk'n Online Only Flash & Go Express 300 Permanent Hair Removal Device:

      First of all I will begin by tell you guys my skin tone, colour etc. I am brown skin tone (if you want to be very specific in makeup, I range in MAC NC 30-32) - so basically I am tanned skin. My hair is black. I have done treatments on: My tummy, my legs, my arms, and my underarms. My arms and legs are the thinnest. My tummy and underarms are more coarse hair. I am 24 currently as well.

      I started using this device July 2017, and took advantage of the 20% coupon given so I purchased my device for 280$ CAD (the flash n go express, purple one).

      It is October now, so I have been using it for 4 monthes. I just completed my 7th treatment few days ago.

      I will be totally honest, at first I was SO SCARED and NERVOUS to purchase and invest in this product because of SO many negative reviews. However, there were alot of positive reviews as well, so I was literally stuck with my decision of whether I should buy it or not. I took my chances and purchased it. I did A LOT of research by the way - I called Silk'N, Youtubed reviews (which werent that helpful), went online and read reviews, read amazon reviews, read blog post reviews, and much more.

      Once my product came, I made sure to read all the instructions fully (because it comes with an instructions book). Therefore, I used this device exactly the way they mentioned - shaved, dry and clean skin, starting off with level 1 and doing it every 2 weeks. I followed exactly this. I moved up a level every session - so 2 weeks later I moved up level 2, then 2 weeks later moved up to level 3 and so on and so forth. Currently I am still in level 4 (As it is painful but bearable lol so I stick to this level)

      After my first session, I didnt notice much change, except that my hair growth was SLIGHTLY (VERY slightly) slower than normal. After second session, hair growth was more slower.... moving to after session 4 and on ward, that is when my hair growth was extremely slow and I began to notice patches (meaning I got bald spot areas randomly). My first areas of change was my arms, then legs, then tummy and now slowly my underarms. I was told by the customer service reps that this device is dependant on everyone, because we are all different - we all have different body types and hair growth. So I took that into consideration and did not hold hopes for the first few sessions. Now, after my 7th treatment, I am so so so so so so happy that I barely have hair growth, and I know with a few treatements my hair growth will be gone for good.

      My recommendation to potential buyers is: PLEASE READ INSTRUCTIONS AND FOLLOW ACCORDINGLY, have patience!! PATIENCE IS KEY, Do not review this product after 3 uses .... give a review after a significant amount of use. If the product does not work for you, then either you are using it wrong, your skin tone/hair colour is not the right match, health reasons or other factors may vary. I read a review where someone said they used this product on a daily basis on the highest setting and didnt see any change....... UM WHAT? Again read instructions people, doing this everyday and on highest setting will not give you anything obviously. Theres a process to everything. I understand the website says after 4-6 treatments you will not have hair growth, which is not accurate - because again that is dependant on you and your body and hair. Also guys, test patch an area because sometimes your skin can be too sensitive and this product may harm you. Unfortunately, this product may not be suitable for everyone, but if you are light, medium and tan skin with dark hair, this will work. If you are very dark or black hair, it will not. Same goes for if you have pale skin, with blonde hair, this will not work.

      Hope my review was informative. I wrote a lot but I know some people need it, as I needed a very informative review when I was buying this for the first time. :)

      Works. Just keep at it!

      By TexasDave

      from Plano, TX

      Comments about Silk'n Online Only Flash & Go Express 300 Permanent Hair Removal Device:

      First, I'd like to clarify. I'm the ideal candidate, pale skin, dark hair, and I do NOT have sensitive skin. I use it on the maximum setting. Second, I'm the worst candidate. I'm a man and I normally look like a bear. I also don't follow instructions very well. :-)

      I've been using the silk'n express for 5 months. I did my legs, once a week (not every 2 like it says) for 4 times. By the end of the 4th time, my legs were definitely smother. I'm now doing it every 3 weeks for 4 sessions. Since it's working, I've started on my upper body. My wife helped me shave my back and I've done one session .. I will be doing it probably every 2 weeks like they recommend because you really can't rush this.

      Note it used to take me 3.5 hours to do my legs. I do overlap, and use maximum setting, and do the hard bony areas around the knees twice. The only time I got some redness was when I used it on high setting twice in some sensitive parts that we won't talk about. Last session (#6) I was doing mostly touch-up, so I went a bit faster and it took maybe 1 hr per leg. When I did my chest, arms, I was a lot more skilled and it went faster. It still took 2 hours (including back and shoulders, which my wife had to do for me).

      Yes, it does work. Yes, it will probably take 8 session for a woman, 12 for a guy. And yes, you'll have to do follow up touch-up sessions as needed. For years. My wife did the laser at a salon, it took just as long and it got rid of 99% of the hairs, but a few DO grow back every now and then. She started hormone replacement therapy (we're in our 50's) and a few more than normal came back. So she's using the Silk'n to treat those areas where hair grows.

      I asked for a price check from the place that did her laser. $300 per leg, $600 for back, $600 for front, $300 per arm. That's for me, as a guy. My wife I don't think was that expensive. I'm patient. HPL is not easy. If you want laser, check groupon, they have lot's of packages.

      Note that after using for a while, it does get hot. If you get a fold of skin into the area with the light, it can HURT. But like I said, I've only gotten a red welt once and it was totally my fault. Also, occasionally during use, it will stop triggering. Like it thinks I've got dark skin or something. Then I just wipe the lamp with a cleaning cloth. If that doesn't clear it, I point it at some other part of my skin that is ultra-pale, and boom it clears it and I start again.

      I keep expecting it to stop. The thing says 300,000 pulses. I have not counted. I also assume that if you may get 300,000 pulses at the lowest rating, and less pulses at the highest. So.. who knows. I just ordered a new one cause they have the 20% off, free shipping and no taxes. Sweet price. F

      It Works!

      Comments about Silk'n Online Only Flash & Go Express 300 Permanent Hair Removal Device:

      At the beginning I used this product every 2 weeks, starting from level 1 and increasing it every time. Now I am in level 5 in my legs and bikini area. The legs now have parts that does not have hair and the hair is thinner. The level 4 and 5 are not painful but you will fill like a little pinch but is easy to handle it. It is waaay less painful than the wax.

      When you reach level 5 the treatment takes more time than the other levels because of the speed of laser.

      It's the 4th week and I've seen any change. I was better before, Because I used just wax. And now that I'm shaving my underarms and bikini area, I just have more hair than before. Lots of money for nothing.
