Frequently Asked Questions
Q1. What are the benefits of epilation vs. other methods?
A1. With epilation, you can enjoy smooth skin that lasts up to 4 weeks. Unlike other hair removal methods, such as razors and shaving creams, epilation removes even the finest, shortest hairs from the root which then take 4-6 weeks to grow back. Additionally, with epilators you can remove hair 4x shorter than wax so you don’t have to wait for the hair to be completely visible. Moreover, you can use epilators across all of your body parts – underarms, bikini line, face, arms and legs all in the comfort of your own home.
Q2. I have never epilated before – is epilation painful?
A2. Silk-épil epilators have been especially developed to minimize any discomfort and irritation, making them the perfect choice for first-time users. Their active massage rollers softly stimulate the skin with micro-pulsations before and after removing the hair, leaving your skin more relaxed.
Being able to use the product in water and on wet skin is especially gentle as the warm water improves your micro-circulation, stimulates the production of pain-reducing substances and reduces skin sensitivity helping to relax and sooth the skin, reducing any slight discomfort and skin irritation. This was confirmed by a study conducted by the German dermatologist Dr. med. Petra Staubach at the University of Mainz, where the majority of participants felt no or only a slight tugging sensation when using the epilator in wet conditions.
If you are inexperienced, you may still feel a little discomfort during your first epilating sessions. With regular use, epilation will become virtually painless as the skin adjusts to the process and the individual hairs grow back at different speeds, so that there is less hair to remove after the first epilation.
Q3. Is it safe to use the Braun Silk-épil 9 in the shower and bath?
A3. Braun Silk-épil 9 is 100% waterproof hence safe for in or out of the shower and bath use. 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.
Q4. What are the benefits of the Silk-épil 9 Micro Grip tweezer technology?
A4. The breakthrough MicroGriptweezer structure introduces a new wider epilation head and longer, deeper tweezers to increase the plucking efficiency and remove even the shortest hairs that usual waxing cannot catch.
A new geometry also allows for closer skin contact. These improved features combined with the 40% wider epilation head make Silk-épil 9 the fastest and most precise epilator ever designed by Braun.
Q5. Will more hair grow back if I epilate?
A5. No, this has been proven in dermatological tests. In fact, studies show that ongoing epilation reduces the amount of hair re-growth, making them lighter, softer and fine, with a semi-permanent effect. Say goodbye to stubble that’s rough and hard and hello to 4 weeks of smoothness.
Q6. How can I avoid ingrown hairs?
An ingrown hair has curled backwards growing towards the follicle, often creating a small bump (also known as a razor bump). Ingrown hairs are often a result of too-close shaving. To avoid ingrown hairs, try exfoliating regularly (approx. once a week) to remove dead skin cells and “clear the path” so hair grows in the direction it’s supposed to.
Q7. How do I go about exfoliation?
A7. You shouldn’t exfoliate intensively immediately before or after epilating as it may leave your skin feeling delicate. Braun Silk-épil 9 SkinSpa comes with an exfoliation body brush that refines skin 4x better than manual exfoliation. For the best results and extra comfort you can also use your favorite body wash or exfoliating gel.
Q8. What’s the benefit of combining exfoliation with epilation?
A8. The main benefit of epilation is long-lasting, smooth, hair-free skin for up to four weeks. To ensure your skin glows with natural radiance, it’s also important to exfoliate regularly to remove dead skin cells and prevent ingrown hairs. Braun Silk-épil 9 SkinSpa combines these two essential beauty treatments in one product for visibly radiant and touchable smooth skin. When using the Braun Silk-épil 9 SkinSpa body brush in the bath do not immerse it fully in water as this will not provide optimal exfoliation results.
Q9. I’ve never epilated my face before, how should I go about it?
A9. Start with the unibrow so you can get used to the epilator head, then move to the upper lip and other more sensitive areas around the mouth and jaw line. It’s a good idea to epilate in the evening so that any potential redness will have disappeared by the morning.
Q10. Can I use it on my eyebrows?
A10. Yes, due to the small, precise plucking system it’s perfect for removing hairs between and above the eyebrows and for maintaining the eyebrow shape.
It is not recommend to use the device below the eyebrow line.

Every month, we were spending lot of money on waxing alone. This compelled us to find a solution.
Although, there are other players in the epilator market, but Braun has been really old and trusted name. Women have been using their products since many years now.
So, we chose this model because its latest. (launched in march 2016)
Overall, the built quality is great. The epilator feels light weight to hold in the hand.
I would not say that its completely painless but with time, you get the habit.
Yes, it was able to remove the thick hairs but for smaller hairs, the epilation was not that much effective. Afterall, you cannot compare it completely with waxing.
But, still, it was able to save us costs of visiting beauty saloon for regular hair removal.
Battery back is nice and runs upto 40 minutes on single charge.
One precaution that you need to take while epilation is to keep the skin streched all the time. Otherwise, injuries can happen for first timers.
The smartlight feature is really great. It reveals the area nicely during epilation.
Inspite of great product, I'm giving 4 stars because of lack of any video tutorials of the product. With so many accessories, its becomes difficult to understand the correct functioning of the product. For instance, my wife noticed many "In-grown hairs" after using it. But, there was no solution provided anywhere on the web. The company also does not replies over their social media pages. They should take the responsibility of atleast guiding through Videos.
