Patented HPL™ technology
Exclusive to Silk’n, HPL™ (Home Pulsed Light™) is the at-home version of IPL (Intense Pulsed Light), a technology used in salons to permanently remove hair using light pulses. Developed from use of over 15 years of IPL, this advanced technology is based on the theory of selective photothermolysis. It works by delivering wide-spectrum optical energy from a device, which is then absorbed by the dark melanin pigments within the hair, and not the lighter pigments of the skin. Within the hair shaft, the energy is then turned into heat which diables the follicle so the hair won’t grow back.
What is so special about the silk’n HPL™ technology in particular though is how it has been optimised to make it as safe as possible and ideal for use at home. The Silk’n Glide Xpress device uses a lower energy level than IPL but with a point of peak high power. This fast pulse duration means it can still be efficient in disabling the hair, but there is less risk for the surrounding skin that may occur with other techniques. This also means less irritation for the skin afterwards, so no need for a cooling gel. As a result, HPL™ technology is some of the most advanced as well as safest home hair removal methods around.
Adjustable energy levels
The Silk’n Glide Xpress features 5 different energy settings so that you can control the frequency of the HPL™ flashes with just a touch of a button. Each setting has a different speed, meaning that you can personalise your device to fit your needs as well as skin type and hair colour. This means the choice is completely up to you; choose the number 1 setting for gliding all over the body, if you’re a beginner or if you have a darker skin tone or select the number 5 setting for targeted pulsing on specific areas.
Skin Colour Sensor
When it comes to hair removal devices of this nature, many worry about them being used on darker or changing skin tones. Silk’n understands this and so the Silk’n Glide Xpress features a built-in Skin Colour Sensor. This automatically detects skin tone, so if the area is too dark for the selected setting, the device will not emit any light pulses ensuring safety with use. It also includes a similar safety feature for the eyes so that the device will only emit flashes when in direct contact with the skin so you are protected if it is accidentally aimed anywhere else.
300,000 light pulses
The Silk’n Glide Xpress is designed to be long lasting as it contains exactly 300,000 light pulses. This means you’ll never need to worry about buying replacement cartridges or about any sneaky extra costs down the line. This makes it a great long term investment, especially when compared to salon IPL or other hair removal techniques that require a lifelong process. So no matter if you have thin or thick hair or even particularly hairy areas of the body - you’re covered!

Directions for use
Before first use, you need to decide which energy level is right for you and your skin by either consulting the chart above or on the bottom of the device box.
- Plug the adaptor cord into the socket on the device and then into an electrical outlet
- Prepare the skin by making sure the area is clean, shaved (not plucked, waxed or tweezed), dry and free from any products
- Begin using the device by pressing the control button. It will turn on (default set to energy level 1) and a fan sound will start. When the ‘ready’ light turns on (approximately 1 second after pressing the button) the device is ready for use.
- Set the energy level by pressing repeatedly the control button until you reach your chosen level
- Place the treatment surface onto the skin. When in full contact the ready light will begin to slowly blink. The device will then automatically detect your skin colour and if it is on the correct setting it will flash a pulse of light. You may feel a mild sensation of tingling and warmth
- Continue to pulse or glide until you have fully covered the area of skin. When using a higher energy level, as the light flashes are slower, we suggest using the pulsing technique working in rows, completing one pulse and then moving along in sections. For lower energy levels, as the flashes are more frequent, we recommend using the gliding technique, slowly glide over the skin, making one single motion ensuring the device is constantly touching the skin.
- When finished, turn the device off by giving the control button an extended press and then removing the adapter from the socket

Been using on my legs and have been really happy with the results, I am holiday ready!
Have fully switched over from typical shaving to this, it is so quick and clean!
Don't even think about the price, with this I never have to buy a razor or shaving foam or aftershave balm again
Despite the laser-based nature of this product it is very very simple to use and it doesn't burn at all
Imagine waxing but without the pain.....heaven!
