Removing even the shortest, finest hairs, right down to 0.5 mm long (that’s as small as a grain of sand), the 7381 model from the Silk-épil 7 range uses Braun’s close-grip technology with 40 tweezers to ensure superior performance and the most thorough hair removal. And, as it’s cordless, it can also be used dry or in the bath or shower for the gentlest epilation.
To further increase comfort in your epilation, prepare your skin with the Olay cooling wet wipes. The wet wipes are specially designed by Olay to relax the skin before epilation and soothe it afterwards, for an even better skin comfort. Plus, the features of the Silk-épil 7 Epilator are dermatologically recommended by Dr. med. Petra Staubach (University Skin Clinic, Mainz) as the gentle solution to long-lasting hair removal thanks to its unique combination of skin-soothing features.
Warm water relaxes and soothes your skin. The warmth improves your micro-circulation, stimulates the production of pain-reducing substances and makes your skin less sensitive. This is why the tugging sensation is considerably reduced in water. This is confirmed by a study conducted by the German dermatologist Dr. med. Petra Staubach at the University of Mainz. The majority of participants felt no or only a slight tugging sensation.
Braun Silk-épil 7 Epilator is 100 per cent waterproof and is safe for usage in or out of the shower and bath. The product features an automatic shut off mechanism that ensures the appliance only operates once the cord is removed from the mains power and recharger dock. This safety mechanism guarantees that the appliance cannot be taken into the water and operated so there is no safety concern of using an electric appliance in/with water.
Braun’s Silk-épil epilators are the perfect choice for first-time users. Epilating on wet skin with the Silk-épil 7 Epilator is especially gentle and perfect for under the shower or in your bath. Still, if you are inexperienced, you may feel a little discomfort during your first epilating sessions. This will decrease with each session, as the skin adjusts to the process. Also, the indivi hairs grow back at different speeds depending on their particular growth cycle, so that there will be less hair to remove after the first epilation.
No, this has been proven in dermatological tests. In fact, studies show that ongoing epilation reduces the amount of hair regrowth.
The best preparation for epilating is a nice, warm shower. It will leave your skin clean and relaxed. Be sure to use a gentle, pH-neutral shower gel, and keep the water warm, not hot, to avoid drying out your delicate skin. Epilation on wet skin with the Silk-épil 7 Epilator is even gentler and perfect for use in the shower or bath.
Silk-épil epilators have been developed especially to minimise any discomfort and irritation. Cooling wet wipes from Olay prime the skin beforehand and massaging rollers help to relax the skin as you use the epilator. Being able to use the product in water also reduces discomfort and irritation as the warmth of the water releases endorphins--the body’s natural pain reliever.
