If you’ve used other at-home hair removal systems, you’re well aware of how frustrating and time-consuming it can be to treat large areas, like your legs or back. With some devices, it can take over an hour just to complete one treatment session. Silk’n SensEpil hopes to change that by offering the largest spot treatment size of any at-home device.
Silk’n SensEpil Features
- Uses HPL (Home Pulsed Light) technology
- Includes 4 lamp cartridges; each cartridge contains 1,500 pulses
- FDA and Health Canada cleared
- Multiple energy levels
- Built-in skin sensor
Silk’n SensEpil Review
The Silk’n SensEpil is different from other at-home hair removal systems you’ll find on the market. For one thing, it’s capable of treating larger areas at one time, which makes it a great choice for legs or back. It also uses HPL (Home Pulsed Light) technology to remove hair, which was something we were unfamiliar with before using this product.
HPL is Silk’n’s patented technology, and it works in the same way that other light-based systems work.
Like other light-based hair removal systems, the SensEpil will seek out and destroy hair follicles. After treatment, you may notice regrowth, but those hairs will shed.
Using the SensEpil is easy. It’s a corded device that attaches to a base, so you won’t have much room to travel around with it, but it’s still a convenient option for hair removal. From the base, you can adjust the energy levels, and power up the device.
The built-in skin sensors prevent the device from being used on unsuitable skin tones. Like other light-based devices, SensEpil will not work with darker skin tones, and this sensor prevents light from being pulsed if your skin is too dark.
SensEpil is physician approved and clinically proven to work. It’s also been cleared by the FDA and Health Canada.
All of these features are great for at-home users, but what really makes this device unique is its ability to provide fast treatments. Of all the at-home devices on the market, the SensEpil offers the largest treatment size. It also offers a quick repetition rate.
SensEpil is so quick and effective, you can treat your legs in just 30 minutes.
That’s a big step up from the 1+ hours it takes to treat legs with other systems.
Another added benefit to SensEpil is that treatments only cause minimal discomfort, especially when compared to professional laser treatments and waxing.
We were pleased with the Silk’n SensEpil, and in just a few treatments, we noticed that hair started growing back thinner and finer than before.
The only drawback with this system is that you have to replace the lamp cartridges every so often.
- Offers the largest treatment area
- Quick treatments; legs can be treated in 30 minutes or less
- Easy to use
- Cost effective when compared to other hair removal methods
- Can be used on most areas of the body, including the bikini area, face, armpits, arms and legs
- Cleared for use by the FDA and Health Canada
- Requires replacement cartridges
Eventually, the SensEpil lamp will die out, and you’ll need to replace the lamp cartridge. The good news is that Silk’n does include four total cartridges. However, replacements can be pricey, with three cartridges costing upwards of $100.
That being said, the Silk’n SensEpil is an effective, easy-to-use hair removal system that will get the job done faster than most other systems on the market. If you’re looking for a device that will easily treat larger areas of the body, like your legs, we highly recommend the SensEpil.
