I was given an opportunity to try the Silk’n Flash and Go and I was excited to check out the results. I wax, and shave to keep my skin smooth and hair free. But waxing can get expensive so I was interested to see what kind of results I could get at home.
The Flash and Go is really easy to use even for people like me who hate to be bothered with directions. To start my first treatment I just had a shower shaved my legs and dried them. As the kit suggested I started with the lowest energy level since it was my first testing session. I just wait until the lights on the side blink then I push the pulse button. It felt warm on my skin but the sensation left after just a moment. Once I got going I tried to not overlap and work in a pattern across my leg. The best part is no pain! Even with my sensitive skin after my whole treatment there was zero irritation.
To get maximum results, you want to do the treatments every 2 weeks. I am on my 3 round of treatment and I can am starting to see results on my legs the hair seems thinner and to even be growing in a bit slower. The most dramatic improvement is on my arm pits. The hair is nearly gone and even better I can avoid razor burn.
Flash & Go is a really great tool it works on all areas of the body including the face. A lot of the at home machines I researched you could only do certain areas but the Flash & Go can handle your most sensitive areas including your bikini line, upper lip, under arms.. you name it the Flash & Go is ready to get rid of unwanted hair. Now the sticker price might seem high at $299 but when I work out the numbers its a bargain. I spend that much on waxing in just a few months. With the Flash & Go I can do it in my home whenever it is most convenient for me. And with repeated treatments the hair will be gone! If you do laser hair removal the savings with the Flash & Go are even more significant.
The package includes the Flash & Go handheld device, an extra lamp cartridge, instructional DVD and informational starter’s guide that explains everything you need to know about the device.

How it works:
The HPL (or Home Pulsed Light) technology kills the hair follicle and depletes hair growth resulting in permanent hair removal. Now because the light needs to detect the hair, it does not work on dark skin tones. It is best for those who have dark hair but fair skin (like myself).
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.
