Silk'n Infinity Permanent Hair Removal Device Review

Hello!

June 2020 update: Scroll to the bottom of the post and you'll be able to read my one-year update including if I think it's worth it or not!

I've been trying this Silk'n Infinity Permanent Hair Removal Device ever since I got back from Vacation at the beginning of March. Silk'n has provided this device to me for free in exchange for this blog post and the YouTube video that I posted a few weeks back, but they are not paying me and have only requested an honest review on my true opinions.


It's been a month and a half since I first started using it and I feel like I can provide a decent review at this point and have results that you can actually see. This device costs $450 CAD, which may seem pricey, but the website sometimes has discounts (15% off spring discount currently running) and you can use ebates to get yourself some cash-back. If you don't have ebates, sign up here with my affiliate link to get money back when shopping on so many websites!

I want to jump into my review first as that's what a majority of you are likely interested in, but after that I'll be sharing a bunch of information that I thought was useful, as well as the settings I use on myself personally. First and foremost I want you to read the claims for this device so you can really keep that in mind.

Claims

This device claims that users with light/medium skin who have brown to black hair will see approximately 60%–70% permanent hair removal after completing the sessions. I'm personally ok with this as my biggest issue is the sheer amount of body hair that I have—not the fact that I have body hair in the first place. I feel like this is important to keep in mind as I don't want anyone running out expecting that 100% of their body hair will be gone after completing treatments with this device. After all, this is a safe to use (FDA approved) at home hair removal device that you can use on your own as much as you need to reach your desire results rather than spending much more money at a salon.

Now onto the review!

Review

I've used the device five times on my arms, underarms, fingers and moustache. I've used it four times on my legs, bikini line, and toes. I decided to split these up as it takes a long time for me to use because I like to be very thorough and full disclosure... I'm too lazy to shave all of the areas at once in order to use the device.

Below is a video where I show you how I use the device and provide some info and my thoughts at the time. This was my third treatment of my arms, underarms, fingers and moustache and because you can't see clearly in the video, I did take a few pictures several days after filming to show you results in comparison to the first time I did the treatment. All of the photos were taken five to seven days after treating the area so you can see the hair-growth rather than stubble, and compare (especially with the newer and larger bald patches).






I've now used the device for an extra two treatments on these areas and will be basing all of my thoughts on those. While I've used it a few more times on the other areas, they are still behind a couple of treatments so the results are not as advanced.

As you can see from the pictures, the hair-growth is definitely more sparse. My arms have definitely seem the biggest results and now it takes much longer for the hair to grow back on them. I feel like at this point that I've seen a 30% decrease in hair, but with every treatment I notice even more changes so I am confident that I'll see a total of 60%-70% less hair by the time that I complete eight treatments. The individual hair strands also seem to be a little bit thinner, but I've noticed that more on my moustache area and underarms compared to my arms.

Below are the latest pictures I've taken after all of the treatments I've done so far (five) before uploading this blog post. Hopefully you can really tell what a difference the device has made for me!


Taking pictures alone is super hard so it's not the best, but I'm stoked with the results! This has also shown me that I clearly favour certain areas while doing treatments so I have to pay attention to those that have more hair that I tend to miss. My moustache is basically gone, but I'll continue treatments there because I don't want it coming back.

Final Thoughts

If you're looking at reducing the amount of hair you have (not getting rid of 100% of it) I think this is actually a really great device! There is a return policy in case this doesn't work for your hair colour or skin tone, but I recommend doing a bunch of research beforehand to be 100% sure that you want it.

I also recommend moisturizing well after every use as this does tend to dry my skin out.

If you decide to buy this, please check out the links at the beginning of this blog post and don't forget to use ebates so you get some nice cash-back from your purchase! Once again, this blog post isn't sponsored and I was told to provide my honest review (which I did), however, I did receive the device for free.

See you soon!



June 2020 Update:


I've had the device for an entire year now and have noticed for the past few months I've been receiving comments on Instagram and YouTube asking for an update and if my thoughts were still the same. I thought it'd be easier to include all the info in this post so anyone coming across it can read it all in one go.


Are my thoughts the same on how well the device works? Yes. Do I still think I'd buy it for myself if I had to pay for it? Not necessarily. Because I have a few people that could use my device (after sanitizing it of course) I would because it is a lot cheaper if more than one person is paying for it so you can share. Whether it be someone in your household or your best friends, it's 100% more worth it that way since you can wipe it down with alcohol to completely disinfect it.

If you're buying it for yourself, it really depends o what you're looking for. I'm using it for pretty much full-body laser minus parts of the bikini area (Brazilian) that I'm honestly too scared to use on my own. That's something I'll eventually get done professionally even though getting it done at a salon still doesn't make it permanent. Please do your research on laser hair removal because you'll learn that it's never permanent. From my understanding getting it done in a professional salon can get rid of more of the hair (rather than the 60–70% advertised by Silk'n... I feel like I got 75% to be honest), it will eventually grow back one day and will need upkeep once in a while. I do think if you don't keep up with this device it grows back faster, but since you own it and have it at home, it's not a big deal to do a touch-up session once a quarter to keep the hair away.

I know a lot of people do both, as in they go to a professional and then for upkeep they buy a device like this. If you, like myself, care mainly about decreasing the amount of hair you have rather than eliminating it completely, I still think this is more worth it. Though there isn't a large range of people that can do laser hair removal in general (based on the technology behind it not working well on light hairs or dark skin.) If you have darker skin or light body hair, I highly HIGHLY recommend consulting with a professional first so they can determine if it would even work for you. The last thing I want is you spending hundreds of dollars just to find out it won't work on you and then have to go through a hassle to return the product or lose your money all together.

I will address that I've received a comment on my video review from someone claiming to have a bad customer service experience with the company. I can't speak on that since I received the device for free in exchange for an honest review so I didn't have to go through the normal ordering process. I will say that you should do your research into this brand and any other brand you look into because everyone has a different experience. I've had really bad experiences with brands people rave about so in the end, do your research into reviews by people that bought the product themselves and determine if you think it'll be good for you! Also, if you can buy it in a store (like Shoppers Drug Mart) you'll probably have an easier time returning it and getting big discounts or lots of points for it!

I don't have any update photos to share right now as I haven't used the device in about six months now (and I've been away from home for several months during this pandemic) so I don't have it on me to touch up and my hair is definitely coming back. Still nowhere near as thick as before, but I have to shave most areas a few times a week (not every other day like I had to before though) so I look forward to things being safe again so I can go home and start using it again!

I think that's about it! Please leave any questions you have below, on my instagram or YouTube video and I'll add FAQ's here or answer you directly if it's specific :)

See you around and stay safe out there!
