While I generally like being a girl, there is one aspect that I really donâ€™t love: shaving! Iâ€™m pretty sure Iâ€™m not alone in that.Â Iâ€™ve never met a girl that says â€œhey, Iâ€™m so excited, I get to shave today!â€ So when the Silkâ€™n Flash & Go Luxx arrived, I was anxious to try it out!
The Silkâ€™n Flash & Go Luxx is a cool device that uses Home Pulsed Light (HPL) technology to help remove unwanted hair and effect long-term hair reduction. What does that mean? Well, basically, it reduces the amount of hair that grows back in, either permanently or at least for a long time.
Silkâ€™n Flash & Go Luxx Review
I am going to be honest, even though I was super excited about the idea of long-term hair reduction, I was a little nervous too. I was terrified it would hurt, even though itâ€™s basically painless. The instructions said there may be some mild discomfort in the area that you are working on. I see those words and think â€œexcruciating pain.â€ Itâ€™s important you know how much of a baby I am about pain, so you will believe me when I tell you that it really doesnâ€™t hurt!
I finally worked up the nerve to try it out on the lowest setting. First, I shaved my legs, because you have to do that before you use Silkâ€™n Flash & Go Luxx Â if you want to get great results. Then I propped my leg up on my bathroom counter, followed the instructions and got started. Iâ€™d say a good 90% of the time, I didnâ€™t feel anything except maybe a little heat. Every now and then, Iâ€™d hit a spot where it felt like a light rubber band snap. Thatâ€™s it. Even I can handle that!
Now, with Silkâ€™n Flash & Go Luxx, you have to use it several times to really get long-lasting results. Each session should be four weeks apart. Iâ€™ve only done one session so far. When I did it, I actually did one leg, then the other a few days later.
Hereâ€™s what I noticed: while I canâ€™t expect to see dramatic results after one session, I did notice that the leg that I did first had slightly less hair growth than the untreated leg. It seems to grow in a bit slower too. As I continue sessions, Iâ€™ll come back and update this post with new results.
Who can Use Silkâ€™n Flash & Go Luxx?
Silkâ€™n Flash & Go Luxx is ideal for those with light to medium skin. I have my dadâ€™s Irish skin, so Iâ€™m pretty pale. The Silkâ€™n Flash & Go Luxx has Skin Color Sensor technology inside to check your skin tone first, to make sure that itâ€™s okay to proceed.
You shouldnâ€™t use Silkâ€™n Flash & Go Luxx on tattooed skin or areas withÂ open wounds, eczema or other skin conditions. You also canâ€™t use it after youâ€™ve been tanning. The manual has a list of warnings, itâ€™s important to read them before using. If youâ€™re uncertain about whether you should use it, talk to your dermatologist.
Some people can experience redness after using Silkâ€™n Flash & Go Luxx. I have pretty sensitive skin and I didnâ€™t notice any extra redness. I did, however, notice that my skin is drier after doing a session. This is common. Just be more diligent about moisturizing (but not BEFORE using, you need to start with clean, dry skin).
If youâ€™re looking for a long-term solution to getting rid of unwanted and willing to put a bit of time into it, the Silkâ€™n Flash & Go Luxx is a great way to go. Follow Silk’n Flash & Go Luxx on Facebook and Twitter to keep up with news.
