Rated 3.05 out of 5 stars
After one use on my legs, the change was VERY noticeable... after a couple treatments, it changes, the results seem less, but mostly because it's little hair left and just in spots.
The change on my face has been more slow, but there's definitely a change.
I wish all those low reviews would be able to Actually learn how to use the device before posting their reviews.
Like, But Did y'all Read the manual or ask for help?
the device does stop working/flashing sometimes, because of the sensors, something about it, but if you try a different area or just pull it away and put it back on the skin, it will work again.
sometimes when I'm doing my legs and that happens, I'll put it on my face, just till it flashes again, then go back to where I was
Also, try whipping the flash and the sensor.
I've had this for about a year, but barely got to so this review cause I happened to see this Item again here on the page and saw all the bad reviews.
Btw, im a guy...
because I have more hair, my results are more slow, than it should be for a female.
These are my results and what I recommend. Everyone's results are different. I have light skin with dark course hair. I had used the machine until it stopped working literally a year and a month after the warranty went out.
1. The rest after repetitive use, the results were long lasting. Probably about 2 to 3 weeks.
2. Easy to use.
3. Painless in certain areas.
4. No razor burn or ingrown hairs.
5. Save money on razors and shaving gel.
1. After not being able to use the machine hair grew back as normal.
1. Results weren't permanent.
2. A little costly to invest in.
3. Can be time consuming depending on the area you are treating.
4. Getting a hold of customer service can be very difficult.
If someone asked me today if I would recommend buying this product. I would say No, don't waste your money. Once I finally got a hold of customer service they wanted me to pay another $200 because I was past the warranty period.
A friend recommending going to a professional clinic. Though clinics are most costly, the results have been permanent. Some clinics have specials as well as payment plans. In the same amount of time I used this machine the professional results were 100% more gratifying. I actually just purchased for more areas to be treated.

For me, it only slowed down my hair growth. it didn't remove any hair. I have fair skin and dark hair.

could be a little bit stronger. the results are not that great. I see some differences, but not enough.

Bought this a few months ago and never had the time to use it, once I opened it and plugged it, it would not flash I tried it many ways and reread the instructions it did not work. A big waste of money.

I've been using this for a year on underarms and have seen only a little thinning of the hair. I have light skin and dark hair, and have been following the directions. I was very hopeful for this to work, as I hate shaving, but I would not say it is worth the money.
K from Sunnyvale
If this works for you, the price is probably worth it. I have dark hair and I used it at least 20 times on the highest setting with no results. I decided to just spend the $2k and get it done professionally. Big let down.

I recently left a review saying this item did not work for me. I thought the machine was faulty. I called customer service for the the flash n go. They told me if it is not flashing, to take a piece of toilet paper and put it over my skin. Then try it. Sounds crazy, but it did actually work. After I get it to flash, then I continue using it on my skin without the toilet paper. It's kind of silly to have to do this but it does beat the price of getting it done professionally.

I was excited to get it as I get monthly laser treatments but sadly like the other comments I could not get it to flash not even once. I was able to pick a mode but nothing happen. Returned it
Julia from WA
The device turned on after plugging it in, I was able to choose treatment modes, but it did not flash at all. Device turned itself off after 2-3 button presses.

I could not get this to work at all. Is tried so many ways and it just doesn't flash. I am returning it

this is a replacement for one of the original silkn systems and is so much faster. I have dark hair and pale skin. I usually have to shave everyday nut not when using this. I have found that 75% of my hair stays gone and the remaining grows slower as long as I continue to use it every several weeks.
I was so excited to try this item that I couldn't wait for it to come in the mail. I am very disappointed that this device did not work. I was not able to get it to work for even one time use. I'm not sure if it's faulty or not. I will definitely be returning this item to get my money back. For reference, I have light skin with dark hair. I make a good candidate for laser hair removal so I am disappointed that this device does not work for me.

I have been using this for 5 days now. I have dark, coarse, hair and very pale skin, so I am an ideal candidate for this. I have dark hair all over my body from my face to my toes (gross I know) I used this to treat me whole body on level 3 last Thursday. It is now the following Tuesday and I barely have to shave again when normally I have to shave every other day. Additionally, now that I've shaved, my skin is crazy soft, it feels like I have waxed! My skin has never felt completely soft from shaving before because my skin is so coarse! It already nearly stopped all growth on my arms and knuckles. I am going to treat every 7 days, as recommended for my coarse hair, for the next 3 weeks and then start to stretch out treatments as needed, but so far I am very happy with the results! I have very similar results as my mom who is paying $1,200 for only her armpits and bikini area at a local laser hair removal clinic. She is considering stopping treatment and borrowing my Silk'n 😂

Works but why is it so much more on the ulta website?
Aly from Valencia
I noticed my leg hair get patchy quickly. And my arm puts slowed down and decreased by 30%. I used it
Much more often because of the rate of my hair growth. Buy it if you can.

I can't believe there aren't more reviews for this!! I bought this for myself as a late birthday gift and I'm on treatment #9 now. Some notes... it took me a little bit of time to figure out how to make it work best on different body areas. On lower legs, holding it horizontally along your shin bone keeps the sensor/light in the right position to detect hair follicles. Anywhere else "soft" (not along bone or narrow areas), you can hold the unit vertically. Press a little harder than you think you need to, and make sure the room is dark. I like to press and hold the button, and glide along slowly while it flashes every 2 seconds or so.
I decided to only shave once a week so I could track my progress easier and I have noticed the hair not growing in as quickly, and some areas it has already stopped coming in completely.

So I was hesitant to buy, because of reviews on other silk'n devices. I wanted to give it a few months before reviewing myself.
After 8 treatments, I am definitely seeing both less hair AND slowed growth. I use the device on my armpits, legs, and bikini area. It takes me a bout 20 minutes every two weeks. I look forward to continued results. (I have fair skin and med brown hair).
NOTE: this is not something that works instantly!! Have patients and be sure to do your treatments.
