Frequently Asked Questions
This is my first time epilating. How should I go about it?
Braun Silk-épil epilators are perfect for first-time users. The active massage rollers softly stimulate your skin with micropulsations before and after removing the hair, leaving your skin more relaxed. Still, if you are inexperienced, you might feel some discomfort during your first epilating sessions. This will decrease with each session as the skin adjusts to the process. Also, the individual hairs grow back at different speeds depending on their particular growth cycle, so there will be less hair to remove after the first epilation.
Does more hair grow back if I epilate?
No. In fact, dermatological tests have shown that ongoing epilation reduces the amount of hair regrowth.
How do I prepare my skin for epilating?
The best preparation for epilating is a nice, warm shower. It will leave your skin clean and relaxed. Be sure to use gentle, pH-neutral shower gel and keep the water warm, not hot, to avoid drying out your skin.
Is epilation painful?
Silk-épil epilators have been specifically developed to minimize any discomfort and irritation.
How do I charge my epilator?
To charge, push the charging cord into the epilator's charging socket until it clicks. The first time you connect your charging cord, it might require firm pressure. After a few connections, it will be easier to click it in.
