Silk’n Flash&Go is an at-home hair removal system which is advertised as an inexpensive alternative to professional treatments.
Silk’n Flash&Go is described as a “revolutionary light-based system for permanent results” which generates light to remove body hair, from the comfort of your home. Originally it was sold as a single model, but it is now offered in two editions, the Luxx and Starter editions.
Reviews are mixed on the effectiveness of this product. Some reviewers have said that the product does in fact work as advertised, while others have claimed it was ineffective. This discrepancy is perhaps due to the fact that the product is better suited for certain hair types. There have also been questions raised about the lifetime of the flash tube, is far smaller than those used by professionals. The Flash&Go lamp needs to be replaced after 5000 pulses, in comparison to professional units which can last well over 100,000 pulses.
This complaint was remedied by the introduction of the Luxx model which can hold 120,000 pulses. Older Flash N Go units can be upgraded to the Luxx “lifetime” edition for about $99.
