HPL Technology

Light Based Hair Removal

The process of laser and light-based hair removal is well known and established. It has been proven in clinical use around the world for over 15 years as a safe and effective way to achieve permanent results.

Light-based hair removal is based on the theory of selective photothermolysis in which optical energy is used to disable hair growth. In order to achieve such thermal effect, the hair shaft needs to selectively absorb light energy and transform it into heat. This selectivity is achieved when high optical energy that is delivered to the tissue is mostly absorbed by hair shaft pigment, while the epidermis and the surrounding tissue is actively cooled (by a cooling mechanism). Melanin is the pigment in the hair shaft that is responsible for the absorption of the light, which generates the heat that eventually disables hair growth. When hair growth is disabled, hair removal is achieved.

Home Pulsed Light™ (HPL)

Silk'n Flash&Go is a personal combined-energy based device for long-term hair removal. The Silk'n Flash&Go is based on Home Pulsed Light (HPL) technology which is a proprietary and patented technology of Home Skinovations Ltd. Epilation with Home Skinovations' proprietary HPL technology is enhanced by a unique acoustic effect that improves the normal process of photoepilation, enabling hair removal epilation with low level of optical energy without the need to cool the skin.

Before HPL Treatment:

Healthy hair follicles
with normal hair growth

During HPL Pulse for hair removal:

Light energy combined with the acoustic effect is selectively absorbed in the hair shaft and disables hair growth

Immediately After HPL Pulse:

Energy is absorbed by the hair follicles
while the surrounding tissue remains
at normal temperature and hair
removal is achieved.

Hair Growth Cycle

Every hair in our body goes through the three phases of the hair growth cycle: Anagen, Catagen and Telogen. These phases have an important impact on how the process of light-based hair removal works.

Anagen is the hair growth phase while Catagen and Telogen, are both resting phases.

Anagen phase

Catagen phase

Telogen phase

The time it takes to complete a full hair growth cycle varies from person to person and the location of the hair on the body, and for some individuals it may take 18-24 months. At any given moment the majority of the hair follicles in any skin area are in the resting stages. These resting hairs cannot be affected by laser or light hair removal treatment, however hairs in the growing Anagen phase will respond. It is therefore important to understand that it may take a full hair growth cycle to achieve complete results when doing any energy based hair removal.

Most people start to see noticeable results after four treatments, and great results after six treatments. Maintenance treatments are common after eight treatments to treat stray hairs that may have been in Telogen or Catagen phase or to treat patches of hairs that were missed in initial treatment.

Flash&Go vs SensEpil

Silk'n Flash&Go is the newest hair removal product using HPL Technology!

Differences between Flash&Go and SensEpil:

  • Flash&Go has an ergonomic head designed for the treatment of hard to reach and sensitive areas such as the bikini line or any zone with curves that require a more targeted approach.
  • Flash&Go applicator spot size is 4 cm compared to the SensEpil spot size of 6 cm. This is still a very large spot size compared to competitors who are only 1 cm.
  • When deciding between which device to get it is important to consider additional flashes and spot size.

Similarities between Flash&Go and SensEpil:

  • HPL technology is used to remove unwanted hair.
  • Skin color sensor scans the color of the skin prior to treatment and will only pulse on skin that is suitable for treatment. It will not pulse on dark skin tones to add an additional level of safety.
  • Both do not require batteries. This allows users to effectively treat all treatment areas without concerns that the battery life will drain during the middle of a treatment.
  • Dermatologist recommended.
  • Same great permanent results!

Does Silk'n Flash&Go work?

Yes. In clinical trials held by physicians, Silk'n Flash&Go was proven to safely achieve excellent hair removal results. Silk'n Flash&Go has been cleared by the FDA for the removal of unwanted hair. In addition, Flash&Go is not required by the FDA to be used with other products.

I have fair skin, why is the skin sensor warning light on?

Sometimes the skin sensor can be affected by the room in which you are treating. Treatments in a dark room or a room with a bright light (such as lamps and vanities) can cause the warning light to turn on. This is a result of a shadow being cast on your skin, making it appear darker than it really is. To prevent this from happening, treat in moderate lighting. If you continue to have a problem, make sure the sensor (located beside the yellow applicator light) is flush against the skin. If neither of these solutions resolves the issue, please call our customer service department at 1-877-367-4556.

What are the Skin Color Sensor and other safety features?

Flash&Go comes with a built-in Skin Color Sensor that is designed to measure the skin tone of the applied surface and enable application only on suitable skin tones. This unique safety feature will disable treatment if your skin is too dark or too tanned, taking the guesswork out of treatment.

Silk'n Flash&Go has been designed with your safety in mind, and tested and approved by top dermatologists and plastic surgeons to meet their safety standards for a home-use device. But, like any skin product or electronic device, one must use it according to the operating instructions and user precautions.

The applicator tip of Silk'n Flash&Go has been designed so that a light pulse can only be emitted when the applicator is in contact with the skin. This eliminates the possibility of an accidental flash of light directed towards the user's eyes.

How can I maximize my treatment results?

1. Start with clean, shaven skin -NO WAXING.

2. Progress quickly to high energy levels - once you have tested all treatment areas on the low energy setting, we recommend you move up to higher levels.

3. Schedule your treatments in two-week intervals. Typically you will see results after the 3rd or 4th treatment, and after this, you can start treating monthly.

How many pulses or flashes does the Flash&Go have?

The Flash&Go comes complete with one narrow lamp cartridge containing 5,000 pulses/flashes.

How long does a treatment session take?

The time can vary depending on the area of the body being treated. Two full legs can take up to 30 minutes or two underarms could take less than 10 minutes. Since the device does not require batteries, it can be used for any length of time. You should never feel rushed to complete a full treatment of the desired area.

How often should I use the device?

Treatment sessions with Silk'n Flash&Go should be spaced every two weeks for the first three to four sessions. After that, treatments should be done if hairs have grown back and until the desired results are achieved. The total number of sessions varies from person to person, but in general, most individuals notice a reduction after four treatments, with very good results after six treatments. Most females require eight full sessions. Males tend to have more stubborn and deeper hair and may require ten to twelve treatments.

Is it effective on white, grey or blonde hairs?

Treatments work best on darker hair types or hair that contains more melanin. Melanin is the pigment that gives hair and skin color, and absorbs light energy. Black and dark brown respond the best, although brown and light brown hairs will also respond, but typically require more treatments. Red may show some response. White, grey or blonde hairs usually don't respond as well to treatments. However, some users have noted results after multiple treatments. For more information on why certain hair types respond better than other please refer to the Silk'n Flash&Go instruction manual.

Can I use Silk'n Flash&Go on brown or black skin?

Do not use Flash&Go on naturally dark complexion. Flash&Go removes unwanted hair by selectively addressing hair pigment. Varied quantities of pigment also exist in the surrounding tissue of skin. The quantity of pigment in a particular person's skin, which is manifested by their skin complexion, determines the degree of risk they are exposed to using Flash&Go. Treating dark skin can result in adverse effects such as burns, blisters, and skin color changes (hyper- or hypo-pigmentation). Many other laser and light devices, professionally and at home, also have the same restrictions on naturally dark skin.

Flash&Go comes with a built-in Skin Color Sensor that is designed to measure the skin tone of the applied surface and enable application only on suitable skin tones. This unique safety feature will disable treatment if your skin is too dark or too tanned.

Can I use the Flash&Go if I’ve been waxing, tweezing or using depilatory cream?

The Flash&Go is best used when users have not been waxing, tweezing, or using depilatory cream within two weeks of treatment. The Flash&Go targets hair follicles and when a person has been waxing, tweezing, or using depilatory cream there is no hair in the hair follicle for the device to target. Please allow 2 weeks for hair to grow back if you have been waxing tweezing or using depilatory cream.

When will I see results from Silk'n Flash&Go?

As with any light-based or laser hair removal device, results are not immediate. In fact you may not think anything happened all. Most users see noticeable reduction after 4 treatments. Each time you treat, you should increase the energy level. It is important to be patient and consistent during your hair removal process as hair may sometimes appear to be growing back after a treatment, but many of these hairs will typically fallout after two weeks.

It is also important to understand the hair growth cycle. Hair grows in three different stages and only hairs in an active growth stage will be affected by a Silk'n Flash&Go treatment. This is one of the main reasons that multiple treatments are required to achieve the desired result.

Are there side effects from using Silk'n Flash&Go?

When used properly, most users of Silk'n Flash&Go report feeling a slight sensation of heat when the pulse of light is emitted. Side effects and complications, while possible, are not common if Flash&Go is used according to the instructions and precautions included with the device. Please read these instructions before beginning treatment. In clinical studies, a small fraction of users reported some sensation of heat, redness around the hair shaft, and slight swelling. These conditions usually subsided within an hour after treatment. For more information on side effects and how to avoid them, please read the Flash&Go instruction manual.

Can men use Silk'n Flash&Go?

Yes, Flash&Go may be used by men, although hairs on men, especially those on the chest, will require more treatments than those of women to get the desired results.

Why is my hair growing, even though I treated it a week ago?

It is quite common for hair to appear as if it is still growing up to two weeks after a treatment with Flash&Go. This process is known as “ejection” and at around two weeks, you'll see that these hairs simply fall out or slide out with a slight tug (we don't recommend pulling on the hairs – just let them come out naturally). It is also possible that some hairs, due to missed treatment or different stages of growth, were not affected by the Flash&Go treatment. These hairs will be treated in follow-up sessions, hence the need for multiple treatments in order to get the best results.

I've heard that some hairs grow back lighter and finer after light treatment?

This phenomenon is well documented among aestheticians and doctors using light and laser devices for hair removal. It is possible that some hairs will grow back lighter and finer after treatment. Usually, these hairs are a fraction of what was originally there, and continued treatment may have a desirable effect on them.

Why can't I treat myself if I have an “active” suntan?

Do not use Flash&Go on tanned skin or after sun exposure! Tanned skin, particularly following sun exposure, contains large quantities of the pigment melanin. This applies to all skin types and complexions, including those who don't seem to tan quickly. The presence of large quantities of melanin exposes the skin to higher risk of adverse effects when using Flash&Go or any other energy based treatment, including burns, blisters, and skin color changes (hyper- or hypo-pigmentation).

Are there any warnings or contraindications for Flash&Go?
Silk'n Flash&Go has been purposely designed with your safety in mind, but certain conditions may limit your ability to treat yourself with the device. To fully understand these limitations, we recommend that you read the Silk'n Flash&Go warnings and contraindications in the Safety Guide or click here to read the list of contraindications.

Is long-term use of Silk'n Flash&Go dangerous for my skin?

The use of light and laser energy in aesthetic medicine has been well documented for over 15 years in professional peer-reviewed journals, and by well-respected institutions like the Mayo Clinic. These journals and institutions have not reported any side effects or damage from long-term use of light and laser device.

How long should I wait to treat with Silk'n Flash&Go after unprotected exposure to the sun?

As noted in the manual, one should wait 4 weeks before treating with Silk'n Flash&Go after unprotected exposure to the sun. However, if there is ever any uncertainty about sun exposure, please contact our customer care department.

Should I do anything before treating with Silk'n Flash&Go?

Before any Silk'n Flash&Go treatment, it is important to avoid sun exposure on the treated area for at least four weeks. A high level UV sunscreen (SPF 50+) will help, as will clothing covering the treated area. The area to be treated should also be cleaned with mild soap and water, and the hairs shaved down to skin level.

Do I need special eye protection when using Silk'n Flash&Go?

Silk'n Flash&Go has been designed with eye safety in mind, and special eye protection is not required. The unique safety mechanism of the Flash&Go applicator assures safe and proper treatment on the target hairs only when the applicator tip is placed firmly on the treatment area. Some flashing light will be seen around the side of the treatment area, but is not harmful and similar to what one sees from a camera flash.

What about Sun Protection?

As the summer weather is upon you, it is easy to underestimate how much sun your skin is exposed to. If you are undergoing Silk'n home hair removal treatments it is very important to remember that you must protect you and your skin from the harmful effects of the sun's rays.

Physicians recommend that patients undergoing any light based treatment series stay out of the sun for several weeks following treatment. Tanned skin and skin with sun exposure contains large quantities of the pigment melanin. The presence of large quantities of melanin exposes the skin to higher risk of adverse effects such as skin discoloration either by darkening the skin surrounding treated areas (hyper-pigmentation) or by lightening it (hypo-pigmentation).

Sun Protection Is important

Extra care should be taken to avoid sun exposure before and after treatments with Silk’n Flash&Go. Acceptable means of sun protection are covering garments or sunscreen (SPF higher than 50) used continuously for 3 weeks before and after treatment.


  • If you have recently used a Silk'n HPL device, avoid sunlight in the treated area.
  • Stay covered and avoid prolonged exposure of the sun.
  • Use broad-spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreens with SPF 50 or higher.
  • If you have had sun exposure wait 4 weeks until you resume treatment using your Silk'n HPL device. If you have concerns you may consider using test spots (where you flash once and wait 24 hours to see if there are any adverse effects such as redness or above normal heat sensation).

Is Flash & Go For You?

Silk׳n HPL Technology is the most advanced on the market, providing laser-like results that were once only achievable in physician offices. If you have unwanted hair and the desire to have smooth silky skin, HPL may be the solution for you. As with any hair removal product, whether at a professional clinic or at home, you must follow the recommended hair treatment protocol and understand that it will take a series of treatment for effective results. In addition, please read and consider the information in this page in order to decide whether it’s suitable for you.

What about naturally dark skin complexion?

Do not use Silk׳n Flash&Go on naturally dark skin complexion. Silk׳n Flash&Go removes unwanted hair by selectively addressing hair pigment. Varied quantities of pigment also exist in the surrounding tissue of skin. The quantity of pigment in a particular person’s skin, or your skin complexion, determines the degree of risk they are exposed to using Silk׳n Flash&Go hair removal device.

Consequently treating dark skin with Silk׳n Flash&Go and any other hair removal device, can result in adverse effects such as burns, blisters, and skin color changes (pigmentation changes).

To address this issue, a unique SKIN COLOR SENSOR is embedded in the Silk’n Flash&Go to measure the treated skin complexion at the beginning of each session and occasionally during the session. The SKIN COLOR SENSOR ensures that pulses will only be emitted on suitable skin tones taking the guess work out of treatment.

Avoid Silk'n Flash&Go on naturally dark skin complexion or recently tanned skin.

Will I be charged a cross border tariff?

No, all orders placed in Canada are shipped from Canada and all orders placed in the USA are shipped from the USA.


I bought this product...

I bought this product 8months ago. I really wanted it for my face but it doesn't work there. But it has worked great on underarms, legs and bikini!

The best thing that ever happened to me.

Flash 'n Go has worked miracles for me. I can't believe something as good as this even exists. When i first bought it in 2014, it happened to be on sale that particular day. I ended up buying it for around $160 at Shoppers Drug Mart. The cartridges used to cost $50. They went down to $25 and now they are sold at $19. Can't get anything better than this. It works great on the face, neck, arms,legs, armpits and bikini. I have light skin tone but did end up with two spot of skin discoloration on the bikini, but nothing majorly visible. So a word of caution, be careful using it down there and a lower setting would be recommended to be safe. Other than that it works fantastic. I have never written a review for anything but this definitely deserved it.

Awesome Awesome Awesome

I was hestitant to order this product because of the cost but I'm so glad I did. I've used it several times and already see amazing results. I still have some hair growth, but it's very irregular which is a good sign that it's working! I definitely can't wait to keep using it and becoming hair free!


good product

it does work!

Purchased 1.5 years ago, very significant reduction on my face, stomach, and underarms. Legs and bikini have had lower results, but definite reduction.

In most locations I was unwilling to shave for fear it would get worse. Having PCOS, chin required daily maintenance. I had to continue plucking and epilating between treatments. So, figured it might take longer to work.

Excessive hair has caused me a lot of embarrassment over the years and I am very happy with the reductions I've seen.

I was very nervous about potential scarring, burning, but have never had a problem. Thank you!

Great product

I bought 2 months a go very good highly recommend .

Finally Hairless !!!

I bought this device last Fall and have been playing with it ever since. Now I only take it out about once every 2 weeks and it takes 5 minutes of my time. I don't have anymore underarm hair and I absolutely love that. I have fun with my friends with it now, since I don't get to use it very much anymore.


This is life i saw results after using it 2 times.

Fast Results!


I got this about 2.5 months ago and I saw results so quickly.

Profile: Middle eastern, 20, female

Pros: Treatments are really short Does not hurt - even on level 5 After 2 times my arm hair was almost completely gone, and it took about 4-5 times for lower legs. Some places show results faster than others, but it definitely works.

Cons: Going to have to buy the long-life upgrade kit so I can use for my whole body

Love Love Love - It really does work

I had been shaving and waxing for years, and was skeptical but excited when I purchased. No need to be afraid - it works! I have been using it for 7 months and I no longer have any hair at all under my arms and my legs are almost hair free!! Follow the schedule of every two weeks and it works great. I could not be happier with this product. (I highly recommend).

Great investment

I've used my Silk'n Flash and Go approximately 8 treatments and I am already seeing a huge difference. The areas that I am getting the best results are my underarms and bikini line. This little home laser system is great!....and although my legs seem to be taking a longer time for me to see the same results as elsewhere on my body, I am really glad that I purchased the Flash and Go. I did 2 years of IPL treament on my legs, underarms and bikini line and did see results but little hairs do tend to grow back and I sure spent a lot more than the Flash and Go cost. It sure provides bang for the buck, in my opinion.

definitely worth trying

This is my first review EVER! I am not into online communities....but I am a firm believer in telling my truth, especially if it can help others. I am also a moderate skeptic, so although I give most things a try, I am not easily impressed. I am of east indian descent, so many of us girls have quite a bit of hair everywhere! So far I have used my flash n go around 2-4 times on my legs, arms, underarms and bikini area. Within 2 uses, I noticed a difference in the fact that I could actually wait about 2-4 weeks before feeling I MUST shave my legs. Even then, there was only hair on about 1/2 my leg. My arms showed similar results. My underarms are proving a bit more challenging. Since I am a sporadic user (not consistent with my timing), I find these to be great results! Imagine if I WAS consistent?! I believe I am also using it at a very low setting, of about 2 bars, because I am a wimp and do find it painful if I go higher! Yet it is still working! I suspect within a year this will have been well worth the money I paid. At the time I purchased it ,they did not have the lux, or the lifetime upgrade cartridges. To me, it makes more sense to purchase one of those.

My experience with the BellaLite System.

I've been using the BellaLite for 11 months and am really happy with t! he results. At literally a fraction of the cost of professional laser treatments, I have permanently reduced by body hair by at least 75%. I continue to use it because I still see a reduction of hair with each use! I am a mother of 2 small children and work full time so it's great that I can use it at my convenience in my home, when I have the time available. I also find that it's much more comfortable then professional laser treatments (which is a definite bonus to the system). Ultimately, I believe if you fit the criteria for laser hair removal, it's definitely a wise investment to buy the BellaLite system in lieu of professional laser hair removal treatments for many reasons.

Best Regards, Rose K

Low cost, Fantastic result...

Silk’n hair removal device is really working. I would recommend that to everybody, I am very happy that I discovered this device few years ago, and since then I am using it for my back and shoulders and the result is great for me and I am almost done with my unwanted hairs. If I had to pay to professionals for such treatments, it would have cost me a fortune, but Silk's cost me a fraction of that with convenience of using it at home at my own free time. Just follow the proper instruction to have a best result. Don’t hesitate to get if you need one.

Best Ever!!

I tried Tria first and was quickly discouraged. It had too small a surface area. I saw the flash n Go commercial - I figured why not? Best investment I have made for my body! I used after every shave on bikini area and it's gone in less than 3weeks!!! I have yet to need to shave and do only maintenance there max once a week! I had thick coarse dark hair -gone!! I'm doing my lower legs and underarms now and after 3 times once a week I've seen less growth. If it could handle my bikini I have no doubt about everywhere else! Very happy customer :)


I was reluctant to spend this much money on this thing (I bought the Luxx), but so glad I did! I only wish I had bought it before some of my chin hairs turned white, as it works only on dark hair. It has, however, removed all of the dark hairs. I'm now working on my underarms and bikini area, which is taking a little longer, because it's more course, and there's more of it, but it is coming in thinner. Patience is a must. Don't get discouraged! I use it weekly, even though they recommend every two weeks for the first few treatments. A+

The best invention to humans since the razor!

I was skeptical at first, how could a light get rid of all this hair? I am middle eastern, olive skin tone with dark course hair and have been getting laser hair removal on my face for the last year. It's been a hit & miss to say the least. I had been contemplating purchasing the Tria, until I discovered the Flash & Go during my last trip to Shoppers Drug Mart! It covered a huge surface area & was half the price! How could this be? How had I not discovered this gem sooner? So I went home right away and did all the research I could on this product versus the Tria. I was more than pleasantly surprised after reading all the reviews. So I decided to buy the Flash & Go, I regret nothing. This is the best invention to humans since the razor. I can't believe this works as great as it does. I use it everywhere! Legs, arms, underarms, thighs, bikini, pretty much anywhere there is unwanted hair. It still seems weird that I can put shorts on without having to spend all this shower time shaving. I saw results after the third use! Like many others, I do not have a bad thing to say about this product & highly recommend this to anyone looking for permanent results in the comfort of their own home.

Great devise, lousy cartridge!

bought the flash 'n go system with a 5000 pulse cartridge included about a year ago. I used it about 5 times on almost my entire body and then the cartridge needed to be replaced. I was extremenly happy with my results and even more impressed with the life of the cartridge. I then purchased a 1000 pulse refill, which only lasted me about 2 sessions. I did not utilized the 1000 pulses caliaming to be on this cartridge. I waited 6 months or so to see my full hair regrowth, and have to say this machine by far is one of the best at home permanent hair removal systems ever. It, for my hair type/skin type, worked miracles. This past Feb I decided to buy the 120,000 pulse lifetime cartridge thinking I will never have to replace it. Unforturnately, it died in the middle of my 3rd session. I was left completely disappointed after spending $100.00 for this lifetime cartridge. I can't believe that it just died. I won't be buying another cartridge as I feel that I will just waste my money on a faulty cartridge once agian.

Cleaning the cartridge?

I have been using the silk'n Flush and Go 120 000 pulses, for several months now, and so far I am very pleased with the results. Thought I would like to know how to clean all the dry skin that get stuck on the frontal part of the cartridge after the use. Can you recommend any cleaning product ?

Great product

Its a great product and value for the money. It works very well for me. I have light skin (not pale light, but white) and brown hair. I tried using it on my underarms and saw significant reduction after the 3rd time. You have to stick to the schedule, use the highest possible setting, and the result will come. The only down side i see so far is that lamp size could be bigger to cover bigger area at the time as it takes some time to do the leg. However still much quicker than waxing. and permanent results - you can't beat that!
Thank you for this great product.

Fantastic results!

My skin tone is light to medium. . The hair I wanted to remove was black with some hair that was white/grey. I started out on a lower setting and quickly went to the highest setting without any problem at all. I've used it more than a dozen times.. My results on both dark and light hair has been fantastic -- almost unbelievable. Most, if not all, of the growth is gone. It works faster on the dark hair but if you are patient and continue treatments, it removes light hair too. I was skeptical about the lighter hair, but it worked!! . Follow the directions. If you are reluctant to shave certain areas, like the face, there are hair removal pads you can try instead. This is an amazing, effective product. I can't recommend it highly enough.

It works great on my hands hair

Thank you to technology. Finally I could get rid of unwanted hair on my hands.


I'm a strawberry blonde, and to be frank, my legs and underarms are blonde, I get a few black nipple hairs, and my pubic hair is red. If Im in the sun, my blonde hair glows like crazy and my friends and partner can see that even though its all blonde, theres A LOT of it. Waxing and me dont go good together, im very prone to ingown hairs. I shave and I get a 5'oclock shadow. I bought this even though it says it isnt as effective on light hair. I am impressed. Its been ALMOST 2 weeks since i first used it, and so far my 'treasure trail' (which was light) has not came back. My leg hair has just grown back, my armpits are full force back, and my nipple hairs have NOT came back. I used this on my butt and my pubic area- fully- and its definitely sparser. If you have light hair and are looking for a blonde hair review, i hope this helps you. I dont regret buying this- I know ill need more sessions for my legs and underarms, but I think it'll make them hair free- eventually.

Great product!!

One word - AMAZING! I can't believe how well it works. No shaving and nice silky smooth legs. Easy to use and doesn't hurt. I have dark, coarse hair with an olive complexion and works extremely well. Highly recommend this product. No more shaving!!!

This IS the product that works!

I have bought this product almost one year ago and cant believe the results. I am 44 years old and for some reason in my early 30s started getting coarse black hairs and some ingrown, on my chin. VERY embarrassing and really took a toll on my self image. I tweezed which left my chin red and scabbed...I had professional electrolysis and even bought a $2000.00 home electrolysis machine and my hair kept coming back. I figured I may as well try Flash n Go, at a last attempt. OMG!! I could cry as I look in the mirror and finally see a chin that is no longer red, scabbed and no black ingrown hairs that people can see. Thank you for inventing a product that works. You have helped with my self image immensely!! I have begun to use it under my arms and almost all the hair is permanently gone. Just ordered my lifetime cartridge to work on my legs next. This is the best product I have ever owned.

It really works!!

I had endometriosis and polycystic ovaries and was on medications that caused dark heavy hair growth on my face, legs, and arms. I can only say that after shaving my legs daily my entire adult life I am now finally hair free. I have used on all those areas and underarms and only have a little hair growth that I continue to treat after just 8 months of use. I never expected these results. I had professional laser on my face but it was not as successful. I never do reviews and have a hard time believing that products do what they say but you can take my word for it that this really works. This has changed my life!! For all the years of embarrassment I only wish they had this device years earlier to save me all those years of shaving, waxing, bleaching. I have been telling everyone about it. It really does work. Take my word for it!

works great

I've tried many methods to get rid of my pubic hair and have always been disappointed-after 4 treatments my pubic area is so smooth-I'm thrilled but my husband is more thrilled!

Great product

I really love how easy the product is to use! This was worth buying for sure! I would recommend this to anyone.

Excellent Product-Results

Flash and Go's product/results are just as efficient as the professional treatments I received by my doctor! Luckily, I have extremely fair skin and black hair which are optimal for hair-removal/results. This instruction/tip came from the surgeon that gave my treatments: Shave, but let the hair grow out for 2 days-prior to your laser treatment, this allows the laser to "see" the hair better for excellent result.

Professional results in the comfort of your home

The initial investment is well worth it, given the professional results and the luxury of not having to leave your home and lastly, use it at a time most convenient for you. Win, win and win!

Flash and go Lux

Wow.......I can not say one bad thing about this incredible machine!! I love it and it works just like it says it will. I have great results and started to notice results about the third treatment. It is amazing !! I like it so much I have been telling all my friends about it. I am even going to try other products from this company. Thank you so much for such a great product!!

Fantastic and painless

My wife and I purchased the Silk 'N flash and go yesterday. I had a wax in Mexico about 6 weeks ago and hairs were starting to grow back so we thought we would give this a try. Very sceptical but I tried it on my underarms today (wife hates hairy armpits) as directed. Shaved first then dried off and treated the area with the Flash 'N Go. Completely painless and so much nicer to do than waxing.
Skin feels very smooth and clean. We will see what happens after a few weeks. This will pay for itself many times over. No more depilatory creams or waxing.
Amazing product. Very pleased so far.


I have had laser hair removal done in the past so I know it works on me. Getting it professionally done is so expensive and you always need touch-ups. The Silk'n Flash and Go is perfect for that. I do my entire body and the hair is disapearing after 3 treatments. I started everything at level one and kept turning it up at the next treatment. I love this machine I am so addicted to it. I bought the LUXX because it basically has unlimited pulses (120,000) . It is amazing I reccomment it for anyone!

Amazing results!

Loving my Flash & Go and the results I've gotten, so much less painful than laser at a spa, and at such a small fraction of the cost, with the exact same results! Started seeing results after my 2nd treatment, with some patchiness, and slowly the hair started to go away after each session, but each area I treated was receiving results differently depending on the hair cycle and thickness. Love using it in the comfort of my own home, and have had great results so far, and am about 95% hair free. Really happy with this product.

OMG - this thing is awesome!

I thought it was going to hurt like the laser in the salons do - but not even close. I haven't finished yet but I can already see that I don't have to shave so much. I've used it 3 times now. Which for me is a miracle - I have very thick hair. Like a bear. I only gave it a 4 because I haven't finished removing my hair, but I feel convinced that it will do the job.

It Really Works!

I just tried Flash and Go for the first time last week and was surprised by the results. I applied Flash and Go to the bottom half of my shins, on the lowest setting, and didn't think much about it until I went to shave mid-week! I was surprised to see that the bottom half had considerably less hair - after only one application! I am sure this will be an awesome product and will lighten my shaving regime! Stay tuned!

No more facial hair!!

After almost 20 years of waxing at least once a week, I decided to try this on my upper lip and chin area. I was nervous at first but after about 4 sessions, I realized how little hair I was seeing. I am now in maintenance mode and have not had to do a treatment for 2 months!! No more running for appointments to get more feeling fuzz on my face!! I haven't focused too much on my legs - I think in 2 years I've only done about 5-6 sporadic treatments. But even with that - I find my hair growth has slowed down immensely and I can go 3x as long without having to worry about shaving them. My legs will be my focus this winter so I can be hair free for the summer!!


WOW!!! I am soooooo excited about this product. I have been looking at many forms of hair removal and been leery of using these types of products however to my pleasant surprise it really does work!!! I used to highest setting from the start followed all the rest of the directions and have completed 4 treatments and I now don't have to shave for weeks already!!! I am sooooo excited about my pain free results that I have recommended this to my sisters and many of my friends. I am very thankful that this product is on the market!!! If your in the market for a great hair removal system than I would truly recommend this to anyone who will listen!!!

Much better than competitor!

I started out using a Tria and just wasn't happy with having to charge it, the small surface area and also the hair removal plateaued at about 65%. I was able to complete the hair removal process completely using the Flash and go and I wish I would have bought it first! The flash and go is more convenient since you plug it in and don't have to worry about the battery. The surface area is HUGE compared to Tria. The Flash and go also leaves less of a sensation on your skin than Tria.

The Best

I use to go to the salon and get " professional" treatments done.Very expensive so I would get patches done as I can't afford large areas.The lady gave her practice up and I was worried about what I was going to do.
I happened to be out at a shoppersdrugmart store and saw this Flash and Go.I took it to the lady who was doing my treatments and she read up on it and loved it.She said this is excellent!
So I went home and started using it and I have to say I think it actually works better than the $30,000. 00 machine she was using.
I highly recommend it and can't rave enough about it.
Now I don't need to do it in patches.
This machine ROCKS!!

Yay, it works!!!!

I'm really really REALLY excited to be leaving a positive review. I've only done 3 treatments (4th treatment is in 2 days) and I'm already seeing results. my hair has definitely been coming in slower and in patches, meaning some of it isn't growing back at all (Yay!) I have a LOT of hair so I'm extremely impressed with how fast this is working. Oddly enough, I'm seeing the best results on my most coarse hair, the bikini line and underarms. I started on the 2nd setting, then went up to 3, then 4, and for my 4th treatment and beyond I'll do 5. I'm definitely going to need to purchase another cartridge though, because I'm doing treatments on my legs, bikini, butt, arms, underarms, back, tummy, and lip. I read somewhere to use white eyeliner to mark the treatment areas so you don't miss any spots/overlap and I'd recommend this because it makes it a lot easier. It's a bit time consuming but so obviously worth it. I'm recommending this to everyone!


After spending $$$ at a professional salon.. and did see results but needed more treatments which I didn't have the $$ I decided to buy Tria.. used it for about 2 years in which I did see some results until I saw this add about Flash and Go.... I have been using it for months now and must say that the stubborn hairs that Tria didnt get rid of.. Flash and Go got rid of it quickly.. I no longer have to shave my legs every couple of days and have used it on my chin, stomach and bikini line.. I am so glad I made this purchased....... and btw..that NoNo is actually made my facial hair grow in more. but flash and go took care of it!!!!!

Great Product

When Christmas came around my husband asked me what I would like to have. I immediately told him an at home laser hair removal system. Although skeptical he told me to go ahead and order one. After a great deal of research, I chose the Silk’n Flash and Go. By testimonials, cost of replacing cartridges, and for other reasons I felt this to be the better product.I must say I was very correct. I have finally stopped having to shave my legs, and absolutely love this product.I would highly endorse the Silk’n over the others any day. Thank you for such a great product.


I just finished my 3rd treatment with the Silk'n Flash & Go. I'm excited about the fact that I am already seeing results!  It is so easy to use, not time consuming and pain free.  I can't wait to see the final results!  If you are interested in an inexpensive permanent hair removal solution with no fuss than Silk'n is for you!

problem solved

Cyclists all have the same issue with regards to sitting on a bike saddle for so many hours: Our 'undercarriage' can get fairly abused. Waxing and shaving can make it worse! I feel like I've solved the problem now with using the Silk'n Flash&Go!"  

This product is AMAZING!!!!

I have been using this Flash and Go since 2012 and let me tell you, I have never ever thought I would be hair free by the time I was 25. If this product would have been out since my teens, I would of been wearing mini skirts and daisy dukes all year round. :)
I am a living proof this product does works, If you don't believe me try it out !!!!

So far so good!

I bought this about 3 months ago and so far so good. I am very pale with lots of hair and have gotten great results. Thank you for this product!

I can throw out my razors!

I did my first 3 treatments and started to see results, but then it was summer time so I had to stop treatments until the fall. Now starting up again and I am excited for summer 2014 when I can throw out all my razors.

Flash&Go really does what it says!

I've used Flash n Go for about 8 months now. Flash&Go really does what it says. I've been consistent with using it and that consistency has paid off. I have seen the hair disappearing and not returning. With all the products out there that don't deliver, Silk N products are in an elite group. Flash N Go actually delivers real results.

Seeing a major improvement

I bought this product at the end of November and have used it regularly since. In fact, they say to use it every 2 weeks in the beginning, but for certain areas I use it every week (not sure if this makes a difference). I've always struggled with facial hair growth. I've tried everything from laser, to electrolysis, to waxing, shaving and threading and even tried the No no device. Only thing that came close to working was electrolysis, but for financial reasons I just couldn't continue the treatments (I was going 3/week for 3 hour sessions each). So far, I believe this product works. My hair still grows back but the hair is finer and there are a lot of patches where there is no hair. So far I'm content with this purchase. Fyi, for anyone concerned if it will work on their skin tone, my skin complexion is light brown (east indian decent) and it works fine. Hope this helps :)

Good results so far

I have completed my second usage. So far I am liking the results hair does seem finer. I am using it on my face underarms legs and bikini line one cartridge lasted me both usages which was better then they had stated. There is no pain although you can feel more heat on bikini line where hair is thicker as well if you miss a spot shaving. So far I am very happy.

Excited about the future with this product!

Now, this is a different review as I only got my system yesterday...but...I did my first treatment today and I was very surprised and PLEASED that this DOES NOT HURT AT ALL ! I got it only for my face as I have the menopause mustache & beard LOL and all I felt was a lovely warm rush of air on my face..NO PAIN WHATSOEVER ! WILL IT WORK ?? that is to be determined in about 6 months .........TO BE CONTINUED......

Just got this, cant wait to see the results

I just got the system today April 18th/2012,and did my frist treatment on my face. 

good things so far

Well like the other review I have recently purchased the item. I too was surprised at how painless it is, and have used it on my face and on my legs. Its quick and easy to use. 

I like how easy it is

I received my shipment and completed the first treatment. Machine is very easy to use.

Each family needs one of these

I have had the previous pink unit for two years. It takes time, but it DOES WORK. There is no reason for teens to be hairy monkeys anymore. Get one for your family. The price of this unit and ease of use are exceptional. Be patient, follow directions and you will see the results of smooth hair-free skin before you know it. I am so happy with this new unit.

Look forward to my next session

I am like the other reviewer, as I only just got my machine this week. I have done my first treatment on my under arms and was happy that it was pain free. I am looking forward to my next session. I found the unit easy to use. I did find it a little hard to line up so to not have any gaps or over laps. I think I did OK. Only time will tell if it works. I am optimistic.

its about time something like this came out

I just did my first treatment and was surprised how easy it is to use.I started off on level one but didn't take long to get to level three.I wish something like this had been invented when I was in my twenties. I am enjoying it, and am looking forward to the end result.


well so far so good ,I really think its going to work.Will be doing it again this week .but again i really think it is working.I use it everywhere.

good start

I tried this product for the first time on the weekend at a level 1 as recommended ...good start as the first click was admittedly a bit of a jolt (yet with quick adjustment to the heat sensation). In two weeks I`ll use it again & will try level 2. I really liked the fact you don`t have to wait for hair growth prior to use as with electrolysis and other methods of hair removal ...especially for treatment on the face. Although the definition of permanent hair removal in the instructions doesn`t sound permanent (may be understandable as hair growth does change over time), I am hopeful this product will have a beneficial impact so am aware I will need to keep it past the return period for full opportunity to assess its potential effectiveness. Therefore, it is very important additional cartridges may be purchased (in Canada) over time again noted in product instructions, it can take almost 2 years to see best results.

very experienced with laser hair removal treatments

First off, I have to say I have had a full round (8 treatments) of professional laser hair removal on my chin and upper lip (which cost me well into the $100's of dollars). I have the "ideal skin and hair" for any sort of laser hair removal to work - very dark hair and very light skin. After my 8 full treatments at the salon I was left with the exact same hair growth! It did not work at all for me! I don't know what the problem was regarding that treatment (wrong machine? wrong application?) but after ensuring with my doctor that I did not have any hormonal imbalances that could be the reason behind it I decided to try again, but this time try something a little less expensive.

no pain which is great

I purchased this as the showstopper back in April. I just finished my 3rd application. My first application I used the first setting as suggested,which was good because it got me used to it. The second time, I used the 2nd setting which didn't feel much different to the first. This time I used the 3rd setting and you can feel the difference, but it still isn't painful.

shave before using the treatment

I purchased in April. The EpiSil representative indicated 4 to 6 sessions to notice no hair. The manual indicated 18 to 24 months for no hair. So which is it?? I called manufacturer. They indicated that for each person is it different. Hormones, hair color, etc. are all factors. I called about my facial hair. I had been using the product every 2 weeks for 3 sessions. I was not seeing much of a difference other than 5 o'clock stubble by mid-afternoon. I used to tweeze or use a epi-cream. The manufacturer indicated that for facial hair one should use the product weekly until bald patches appear and then every 2 weeks until no hair and then only when needed. I wish the representative on tv and the manual were more up front on what to really expect and to how best use the product. I started my first weekly session today. I hope in a few months that I can be in the maintenance phase. Will wait to see. P.S. the manufacturer also gave me a hint...shave right before using the product. If there is any hair above the skin, the treatment will not be as effective as the pulse has more "hair" to work on. The less hair in the shaft the better.

hair free summer for me!

I am so happy with this product and the fact that I don't have to deal with painful waxing or waste my time shaving anymore. After 6 treatments the hair under my arms in gone, and they didn't hurt at all. It's a hair free summer for me!

awesome product if you hate shaving as much as i do

I can honestly say I do not have to shave nearly as much as I did before buying this product. My legs are much more manageable now. Worth looking into if you hate shaving, I certainly don't have to spend money on razors like I did before.

satisfied with this purchase

so I have done 4 treamtments and there is not a BIG difference..but I am only doing my face...I think the hair is is hard to tell. After having read a review after mine that the face should be done weekly (?) I think I might do more than the handbook says....once a month doesnt seem enough for me right now.....BUT the machine is WORTH IT AND I AM VERY, VERY PLEASED. I went to level 3 the 2nd treatment and still no pain or discomfort whatsoever.

it works!

I bought this three weeks ago and already see a huge improvement in the thickens and amount of hair growing on my legs. What few are still growing are very fine. Can't even see them unless you're looking up close. It really works and doesnt hurt at all.

best thing ever invented right here!

Let me start by saying that I have been working as a Laser Technician performing hair removal and other skin treatments using various types of laser and treatment devices in a Plastic Surgeons Medical Clinic for over 10 years. I thought that there was no way that this would ever work. The cost of 4 upper lip hair removal treatments in my Clinic is $250. For around that price I could own my own device and have the convenience of at home treatments... too tempting, curiosity got the best of me and I ordered it. I thought that I'd be sending it back quickly because I would know by the second treatment whether or not it was really doing it's job and the Shopping Channel offers a money back guarantee. OMG OMG OMG, you've got to be kidding me!?! It works! I am absolutely astounded, I can't believe it! It's doing exactly what the $500,000.00 machines in my office do. I don't know if I'll ever be able to look another over paying hair removal patient in the eyes again. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am so amazed and will be spreading the word.

glad I bought it!

Well worth the purchase in my opinion. I have had great results and do not need to shave nearly as often as before. With a few more months using the Flash&Go the plan is to stop shaving forever! Glad I bought it

Most hair is gone

Works great but not on grey or blonde hair. Most of the hair I used it on is gone.

turned out AWSOME so far

"At first I was concern about side effects from this hair remover device, nothing bad happened, I followed the instruction and by the 3rd treatment my face hair are practically gone.My leg hair are much thinner and so on.
Thank you Silk'n Flash&Go people."

skeptical at first, but surprised!

I ordered my machine with every intention of returning within 30 days. I simply didn't think it would work as I am mostly grey. I did as suggested for six weeks and I must say the hair loss just kind of crept up on me. After using it four times in the last two months, I look at my legs and see just patches here and there that have to be addressed but they are so thinned out that I don't feel I have to rush the job. As for my face, there is just one spot that needs more treatment and I'll do that when I next get to my legs. A big thumbs up from me!

I love that I can do this at home

Does everything you said it would and I saw results after the first treatment! Not many laser hair removal systems are able to treat facial hair and the best thing of all is you can use it in the privacy of your home.

Loving every second of this

I bought this in April, and have used it on my full legs, bikini line, full arms, armpits and face every 2 weeks. So far, so good!I have noticed a great difference after 4 treatments...I only have the occasional growth here and there and I cant wait til I am fully hairless forever. I wish I have had this gadget years would have saved me so much $ and pain on waxing. The only downside is, I can only use each cartridge every 2 sessions..I wish they last longer. My husband, who has seen great results on me, now wants to borrow this for his chest hair! This is definitely worth buying.

wokring well

This product really worked well on my legs. After 5 treatments, I really started to notice a difference and less hair growth. It's amazing not having to shave as often during the summer

I use this everywhere!

I bought this product to help me get rid of hair on my upper lip, underarms, and backs of fingers. Being of 'Indo-Aryan' ethnicity, I tan easily and this summer has darkened my skin tone considerably - I may have to stop using the product on my face for a couple of months until the tan goes away. However, I am really happy to note that hair growth has almost stopped on the backs of my fingers and reduced considerably on my upper lip in just two months of use. The replacement cartridges are pricey, but the convenience of use and privacy of doing this at home make this product really worth it.

almost hair free!

I have used another supposed permanent hair removal system,and Silk'n Flash beats it hands down. I didn't notice much change with the other system but this one made a big difference after only 2 months; I am almost completely hairfree.

I would recommend this

Just a word of advice: everyone is different, but no one can cover their entire underarm area with three flashes. It takes about 16 or 18 per underarm to properly cover the entire area. My underarms are almost hairless now. Legs can take fifty flashes per leg to do a complete job. My legs are about fifty percent hairfree after two years and the remaining hair on my legs is half as coarse and dark as it once was. Yes it works, but takes persistence and the cartridges are still expensive. I have recommended to all my friends because some things are worth paying and waiting for. I will never have to shave under my arms ever again.

its working !

I've been using mine for 6 months and its working!!! Ladies just be patient, you will see results!!

This product is worth a try.

I have had My Silk'n now for 3 months. In that time, I have given myself several treatments (legs to above the knee, underarms and facial sideburns, upper lip and chin). I have just finished my second cartridge. The underarm hair has practically vanished, the facial hair is diminishing as is the leg hair. It is going to take a few more treatments. I only treat every two weeks and have only graduated to power 3. This gives a tingle -wouldn't want to go higher. It is certainly going to be cheaper than the salon and after seeing some of the photos of salon experiences on the news lately, I'm glad that I am in control of the power. Have not had any lasting effects other that a heated tingle as mentioned. Buying additional cartridges is OK by me. It would have cost $400 for the facial hair alone (plus HST and tips) with no guarantee of more treatments being needed. This product is worth a try.


This does just as good a job as it's higher priced cousin :) This is definitely worth purchasing. Skins feels clean and refreshed and all your other products work so much better when applied to clean skin!

skin feeling soft

The cleansing power brush is a great product. It cleans your skin really well. I have noticed a change in my pores since I have been using the brush, they are a lot smaller. My skin also feels softer than it did before.

so soft!

These are soft and silky on the skin and the price is so right!

cartridge questions

"This review is on the replacement cartridge only. Because of the previous reviews, I literally counted my flashes used on a tally counter, and I got 1036 flashes using only levels 4 and 5.
On the TV presentation they seem to vastly underestimate the number of flashes you'll need to do a given area thoroughly, so I wonder if this accounts for some of the numbers people are reporting. Are you actually counting? Please let us know.
I'm starting a new cartridge today and I will definitely count again and report back"

truly wonderful!

" I have been so pleased with my results with the Silk'n hair removal device. For years I have been plagued with unwanted hair and I have tried every hair removal method possible. As a licensed aesthetician who works with a famous dermatologist, I have used professional IPL machines and lasers on myself and I must say the results from the Silk'n are just as amazing! It is wonderful to be able to treat myself in the privacy of my own home and on a schedule which works for me. After only two treatments, I noticed fewer hairs growing back. This is truly a wonderful product!"

hair is growing back slower and finer

"I'm really happy with my hair removal results, I used to have to shave every three days, but after only a few treatments I notice my hair growing back slower and finer. Thanks for saving me all this time and getting rid of my hair."

-treating arms, legs, underarm, bikini -

its quick and easy!

Going to a laser clinic I had to waste time on travel then in the waiting room, and spend money tipping and parking. Now I can treat my entire legs in less than 15 minutes on my own time. Plus an extra bonus is I no longer have to deal with the sticky inconvenience of shaving and waxing.

The sooner you do this the better!

"I am a delighted user of the Silk'n hair removal system and wanted to share my experience with others who are considering an alternative to the grind of shaving several times a week. I have tried many different types of razors, depilatory creams, and even waxing. All were time consuming and messy and the waxing was very painful. At the suggestion of my dermatologist, I decided to test the Silk'n system. I have dark, fairly plentiful body hair and regularly removed it from my legs and underarms. In the summer I shaved the bikini area almost on a daily basis since I boat and water ski frequently. I began using Silk'n last February and followed the manufacturer's recommended schedule of treating every two weeks for 2 months followed by once a month treatments for 4 more months. I started out slowly at level 1,then level 2. I skipped 3 and went right to 4. I quickly moved to level 5 where I remain. I have experienced minimal discomfort and any redness disappeared within 2 days. At this point, I have only one treatment left in the original cycle. After just two treatments, my underarm hair greatly decreased and after three totally disappeared. What a relief! I had suffered for years with rashes and "bumps" in this area from the frequent shaving. During this same period the hair on my thighs also greatly decreased as well as the hair on the backs of my lower legs. The bony areas on the fronts of my legs and the bikini areas have been the last to respond. I continue to do full treatments in these areas and at this point my shins are very nearly hairless and the bikini area is coming along nicely. I just returned from a 10 day trip to the beach and for the first time since I was twelve, I traveled without a razor! That's right, no razor, no creams, no waxing. I was able to cut showering time in half and had the luxury of extra time at the beach and extra time with my family. I am in my fifties and think this is one of the best personal grooming aides I have every used. I suggest trying it out at any age, but the sooner the better. It's great to wake up day after day with smooth silky skin!"

- Judy D.

I see for myself how it really does work

"Your product had the best feedback online so I purchased it. Now that I have it I can see for myself how great this little machine is. I have really dark and thick hair and felt embarrassed to wear skirts even after a good waxing job. After only two treatments I noticed a HUGE difference. I had hairless legs for weeks! The few hairs that did come back were much thinner and less noticeable. I love Silk'n and am soo thankful for it."

- R. Gill, Alberta Canada -

The hair barely grows back at all

"I've been using Silk'n for about 4 treatments now. I notice a lot less hair in the treatment area and can't wait to be hair-free, even just less hair is fine with me. I have the worst arms and I'm so happy that the hair that does grow back is not prickly and much softer. I hated the way it would grow back after shaving! Treatment is much less painful than waxing, and I am able to control the levels - by treating at lower levels at the beginning then higher now I have gotten used to the flashes."

- G.S., Ontario Canada -

so far so good

I got this about 2 months ago. It's definitely easy to use, I wish however there was some way to tell which area has been treated so I don't go over that area again. But the redness after I'm done shows that I am covering all areas! The discomfort fades after a few minutes. I am trying it on my legs at the highest setting & at a lower setting for my neck & face for the peach fuzz that everyone said would not respond to laser. I had tried laser hair removal for the peach fuzz before & over the last few years it grew back. I think this device is helping, so far I have done 4 treatments 2 weeks apart as recommended. The hair is definitely finer & is hardly grown back, I will have to wait & see if it lasts now that I will go to once a month treatments. Still, worth a try, beats waxing & depilatories for the legs. I will try it next on the bikini area.

Loved how easy it is to use

I am very glad that I have bought this kit, I used it everywhere on my body. No pain, no redness, little tickling sensations and warmness on the spot where flash was.
I like skin-color sensor, this is very useful.
Pulses are completely comfortable. You can choose from 5 regimes of intensity.
The growth decreases from the first time of use. Of course depends on the area of the body, and hair type... I have pale skin and brown hair, for me Flash&Go is ideal. Anyway one session was not enough for me, I needed more than 3 to reduce hair growth.
There is one more cartridge in the Kit.
In my instance one cartridge was enough to remove hair on legs, arms, face and underarms in many sessions.
Very easy in use.

The fact that it's safe is a huge plus

I feel safe using Flash & Go for home hair removal because it's one of the only product of it's kind that's safe to use on sensitive areas such as your face and bikini area. Plus, it beats shaving.

seeing results and loving it

I'm very glad I purchased this product. It takes a bit longer than they say it will take to see results, but I am definitely seeing them now.

great product for a great price

I received this kit as a gift from my parents 2 weeks ago...and i Love it. I have suffered from Dark and stubborn facial hair for years. Due to a condition i have and after using this just once i could see a difference. I know it is going to take months before i can see a drastic change but this is a great product for a great price, compared to going into an office.

cant wait to see what results bring

This is better then TRia but I only had the flash n go for a few weeks so I can tell how effective it is yet but in a few more weeks i can tell .

No more plucking, waxing, etc daily

have been looking to get rid of dark hair for years. I have waxed, shaved, bleached...used those creams but nothing has provided lasting results...until now! Well, this product won't be going anywhere.
Several years ago I tried laser hair removal at a high end dermatologist office. After going for 14 months (once a month#, I saw a minor reduction in hair but I was soooo disappointed when the hair kept coming back. Those treatments set me back thousands of dollars. Well, I was considering going that route again until I did my research and found this product. I have only had it for a couple of months but it has changed my life. I saw results after the 2nd treatment. I haven't had it long enough to speak to long term #3 months or more) results but I can say that even if it doesn't leave me 100% hair free, it is still worth it b/c I am not plucking, waxing etc daily anymore. If you have dark hair and lighter skin, please give this a try.

very happy with the flash & go!

This is totally awesome, used it for over 2 months and it's worth every penny~!! I noticed that it worked after the first try. I'm asian and i have extremely coarse hair. I have tried everything and I hated that i would have a 5 o' clock shadow on my legs the same day I shaved my legs. Now after two months, I can shave and it lasts for weeks and weeks. This is an amazing product.


I am very impressed with the Flash&go unit. I've already seen great results in the short amount of time that I've had the machine. It is better than any other hair removal I've tried and well worth the price!

Awesome! I'm starting to see results already!

Two years ago my friend introduced me to the Sensepil and let me try it out on my ankle. All summer I had a bald spot on my legs so this past Christmas I decided to treat myself and buy this because shaving was a pain!

I'm only on my second treatment and I already have small bald spots on my legs! M underarms are starting to have small bald spots too, this product is a miracle! I can't wait to enjoy smooth, hairless skin forever.

Great product!

I've very pleased with Flash-n-Go. I think it's worth the price and wish I'd gotten it sooner!

The best advice was to read and follow all instructions carefully. Keep in mind that there is a safety mechanism which keeps it at level 1 for the first 50 flashes, so that may affect the very first set of results.

I'm the ideal candidate with fair skin and dark hair. I used this on my bikini area which is normally very, very sensitive (lots of irritation and some ingrown hairs whether I shave or wax and just a general pain in the neck).

After a couple of treatments, the hair has completely stopped growing in a decent area. In the places where it hasn't stopped growing yet, there is no irritation and no ingrown hairs.

My experience with this tool has been great and I've already recommended it to a friend.

Still deciding

I have used this twice so far and I think I can see some differences in some spots. I will know more after another session or two. It is easy to use and I hope that it works like it says.

Good machine

The Flash&Go was easy to use, simple and I noticed satisfactory results.

Not crying anymore...

I am a 38 yr old woman with blonde hair and fair skin. I must also add that I have what I call a "man beard". Yep, lots and lots of dark coarse hair on my chin and neck. I was tweezing every morning and every evening all the while crying. I had to wear heavy makeup due to the areas looking like blackheads mid afternoon. Over the last 5 years it has been getting worse. I've told my mother several times that if I'm in a coma, to bring her tweezers to the hospital and pluck my beard!
A few months ago I started searching for doctors in my area who did laser hair removal when "Flash & Go" popped up in my search. The idea of spending a few hundred dollars vs thousands of dollars at a doctor's office sounded pretty good to me! However, I had one big question, "Does Flash & Go work?"
I began researching and reading reviews constantly. I was obsessed with the website. Then on Black Friday, the site was having a big sale with a free item. I couldn't resist so I ordered it, and told my husband what he bought me for Christmas.
I did my first treatment Sunday, January 5th. I was afraid, but once I did the first "zap", I was a pro. Now, I did not shave my chin or neck. Even though the instructions told me to do so, I just couldn't bring myself to do it. My husband stayed with me, he was unsure about a laser being used on my face. After a few short minutes I was done. Then I pointed out to him that he had a couple of patches of dark hair on his back, so I shaved and "zapped" him.
The instructions stated to do treatments every 2 weeks, well that went out the window. I did it every Sunday for 4 weeks on the highest setting. I did not burn or have any problems. Since I refused to shave and the instructions stated not to tweeze, I used little scissors to trim the hair. Within those 4 weeks, I had terrible stubble. I didn't understand why my hair was still there but my husband's hair on his back was gone after only 2 treatments! He was convinced and moved onto other areas of his body, whereas I was still a bearded lady!
Well, by January 30th I was done! I couldn't live with the stubble anymore! That morning I tweezed every single black hair and cried. Took me a good 45 minutes to get the task done..
Here we are February 7th, and guess what? Nothing has grown back! I keep running my fingers across my chin/neck and it's as smooth as a baby's bottom! My skin is tight and I see no signs of little hairs just under the skin that always looked like blackheads. I'm guessing the 4 treatments did destroy the hair and they just needed to get tweezed out.
I love Flash & Go and will do my underarms, bikini line, legs and arms! My 17 yr old daughter has noticed some dark hair on her upper lip, so she wants to start treatments. I also love the fact that you can buy fresh cartridges and it plugs into the wall while in use, no battery to charge. Thank you Silk'n! I will be ordering your Blue and FX as well.


I researched and every review would lead me back to this brand. It is easy and does not hurt and it's so worth the purchase!!! Thank you!

Don't Delay...

I have had professional laser hair removal and spent no joke 100's of dollars.
When I bought this system for myself at Christmas I was stoked. I have used it on my entire upper and lower legs, bikini area and under arms. I have before and after photos and I am amazed. I am almost hairless and if any hair grows through it is in patches where I probably missed originally with the laser. I am on my third cartridge (not including the one which was already on the laser, for this one did not give me anywhere near 1000 pulses). This was probably a faulty cartridge and the customer service was phenomenal. So happy with it. Now I need something to zap rosacea!

Very Pleased! Love it~!

I recieved my flash & go on 1/28/14 and used it for the first time that day.
*I shaved the areas to be treated, (tops of feet and toes, and underarms. I also treated my lip but did not shave it because prior to this i never shaved it only waxed about ever 2 week.)
*To begin I set it at the lowest setting just to see how it felt, was apprehensive about it being painful. But to my suprise, not bad at all. Totally bearable. I used the highest setting(5) on all locations treated. As for my feet, I didnt feel any discomfort at all. Just a flash of heat when i pulled the trigger. On my lip, the same. Heat only, no pain. As for my underarms, there was literally one localized spot where it was uncomfortable and that was the area where the arm folds. It felt like a rubber band snapping against my skin. But I still continued to use the highest setting.
*The treatments per are just took a matter of minutes. Very fast and east to do.
*The week before I got my flash & go, I shaved my underarms, then waited 3 days before shaving again to see how fast the hair regrowth was just so i would have something to compare to. After doing my 1st treatment to my underarms and waiting 3 days, i did notice quite a difference(reduction) in the amount of hair grwoing back. Also for my feet, I would normally have to shave them every 3 days because the hair grew very fast. But after the first treatment, It was well over a week before it got to the point where i needed to shave. And even then, the hair that did come back, was barely noticeable.
As for my lip after 1 treatment, it is a whole lot better. I normally waxed my lip before getting the flash and go. I never shaved it in fear of making it worse.
*I was skeptical about how well the flash and go would work, or if it would EVEN work, but I can say it definately does. After the first treatment, you can tell a big difference. Especially in the areas that arent all too hairy to begin with. (like the lip and feet) After the one treatment, it almost completely gets rid of all the hair regrowth.
*I have since done about 3 treatments, and I dont have any hair regrowth on my lip. There is a few stragler hairs that have regrowed on my feet, but only noticeable after about 2 weeks. My underarms are still in the process of being hair free. But getting better every treatment. Hopefully by summer time it will all be gone.
*I have also added in to my treatment areas: my "happpy trail" & around my belly button, and in between my breasts. (After having 2 children,a few stragglers of dark hair began to grow in these locations and was very bothersome) BUT After only 2 treatments I'm pretty much hair free here. Very pleased.
I will continue to update in the future.
A few stats about me: 26yrs old, 5'4, 140#, white race, light to medium skin tone

So great

I am loving it

Great Product

I had my underarms, legs, and bikini done 15 yrs. ago and spent thousands...I did get about 20 treatments on each area so my hair went bye bye....but found through hormonal fluxes a few newbies cropping up here and there...I also had hormonal chin hairs which needed to be eradicated. I have used this successfully on my bikini, leg, and underarm area's. It is also working on my chin area which was not previously ever treated. I have done bout 6 treatments....once a week. Now my husband is getting zapped for back of neck hair and beard. I use #4 to get the best results in the shortest time.


I purchased the Flash and Go, thinking I was going to return it.....just another gimmick. I had to shave my legs at least every other day to look good. I have used the Flash and Go for 8 weeks now and in that time I shaved 3 times in between. My legs feel so soft, I just love it! Thank You, Flash and Go

Should buy it earlier!!

I love this product! I used to spend lots of time shaving hair on my legs. What make me frustrated is that the hair regrew very soon. But after the second treatment of this product I can feel the hair growing slowee! The clean and smooth legs can last for almost two week! Can't wait to use it the third time!

Try it!

I purchased this product and found it actually worked! Totally recommend it.

I tell all my friends.

I love this device. I had great results after only two treatments. I have very light skin and dark hair so I understand that I'm an excellent candidate for the product. The process does take time (I'm on my 5th. treatment) and can be tedious on larger areas like the legs, but it is well worth the time invested. With results that mimicked the professional hair removal I paid $1000 for on my underarms, the value is amazing (and you don't have a stranger zappin your bikini line). It also helped with the ingrown hairs on my upper thighs. I convinced my sister to purchase the silkn' for her daughter who has a teen with very dark and excessive hair, as the price of professional removal is prohibitive. I would definitely purchase again. Also, I had an issue with the first device and customer service replaced the unit with relative ease.


Never have encountered something so useful in this field, the price is really great for most people, after 3 sessions almost no hair growing and and i was so skeptical, love showering without the burden of the razor, it is really great! I personally bought too many extra cartridges I think that the device with what it has should be enough. Some areas that have thicker hair need more treatments but results are more than evident. love it! great invention.


I bought the flash and go at shoppers drug mart for around $200. When I came home with it and started reading the manual, I realized that u have to shave before and cant wax after using it. Depressed due to the amount of hair on my body(small hair on stomach, and whole body), I wasn't to ecstaticed about shaving my entire body, because from experience, I knew the hairs grew back thicker and darker. I planned to return It the following day but did a little area on my leg anyway and my left arm after shaving. After I returned It, I realized that my leg still had a hairless spot and I didn't have any arm hairs. I waxed my other arm to even it out, and its been 2 months, my waxed hair grew back in no time, and the flashed hair is all most non existent. I plan to go back and buy it again. I think the flash and go worked amazingly because of my tan skin tone and dark hairs(skin cant be to light or dark or the hairs). I would definitely recommend this product to everyone.


It works great, my skin is very sensible and now I don't have to worry anymore about shave and irritation!

Free At Last...from Hair that is!

I have suffered from being allergic to my own hair. Seriously!! So when I had my first spa treatment I was amazed how it prevented further itchy breakouts. However, my wallet prevented me from going back to get everything done. So I simply invested in the Flash N'Go. Well let me tell you what I tell everyone else....I do not get paid by Silk'n but seriously do not delay any further....go and get it. You will not be disappointed. I have had mine long enough that I am now only needing it as I go and I only do spot treatments. So I have done my under arms, lower and upper legs and bikini. The only time you feel the pain of the pulse is if you didn't give yourself a clean shave prior. So any hairs the pulse senses that are above the skin surface you could feel the 'zap'. So make sure you are completely clean shav'n and go to the full strength. You'll thank me later. Also I am fair skin and loads of freckles. Oh yeah and another thing...I had a mole that sprouted out a hair or two and boom...the hairs are gone and to my surprise the mole shrunk and lightened in color. Boya! So what are you waiting for? Free yourself from Hair like me. :-)

Great product!!

I bought this in April and meant to write a review earlier. This product is fantastic! I've started on my under arms and legs. After the first couple of treatments I don't have to shave my legs everyday. My underarms have areas where hair isn't growing back. Will be starting on my bikini area next.

Better than other hair removal systems!

I am 54 and have struggled with facial hair and stomach hair for most of my life. My husband purchased the NoNo for me and all I can say is, "What a joke!" After that experience he kindly purchased the $500 Tria off the TV ads. I used it every week faithfully for 8 months with NO change whatsoever. Another waste of time and money. Finally, I purchased the Silkin Flash n Go and after three months, I definitely see a big change in the facial hair growth and on my stomach. I am very impressed with this unit and highly recommend it!


I never believed that at-home hair removal laser devices would work. I had the no-no before and it was absolute garbage. I bought the Flash&Go because a friend at work encouraged me to try laser hair removal and I thought "why not". I didn't want to go to a spa or clinic to have hair removed because of the cost, so the Flash&Go seemed like a good option.

Well let me tell you, it's amazing. I am 100% a believer. I used the device for 2 months at full strength (I sometimes did the treatments every week instead of every 2 weeks) and I pretty much have no more leg hair or underarm hair - there are just a few hairs left that I have to treat, but it's amazing that in 2 months I'm seeing these kinds of results. I used to be so self-conscious about the clothes I wear because of body hair, but now I never have to again. I'm starting to use it around my bikini line, but I'm starting with lower power because it does hurt.

I would recommend the Flash&Go to everyone to try - it's SO effective and cheaper than going to get it done by someone.
