Are results permanent with HeySilkySkin?

Our Handset offers extremely long lasting results however no form of laser hair removal is permanent, even at the clinics.

To maintain long-term results we advise using our Handset once a week for 8 weeks, then just once every 3 months for maintenance.

Eye protection is optional but it is recommended. Our anti-flash eye protective glasses can be found in the link here and have been designed with enough tint to combat our Handset's flash output.

Should I shave before using HeySilkySkin?

Yes, we recommend shaving the areas you wish to target before using your handset.

Does HeySilkySkin work for all hair colours?

Yes however users with very light blonde, red, or grey coloured hair may need to complete 1-2 sessions more than, for example, a user with brunette hair. This is because our Handset targets melanin in your hair which absorbs the light's energy, and melanin is more present in darker hair colours.

Do I need to wear eye protection when using HeySilkySkin?

No, eye protection is not required whilst using our Handset. Our Handsets have been designed with a sensor and will not pulse a light unless the entire window is pressed against your skin. That being said, you should never try and look directly into the light as it flashes.
