Silk’n IPL Overview

Difference Between Silk'n Flash and Go Vs SensEpil

Silk’n Flash n’ Go Vs. SensEpil Device

The main difference a customer can see when checking these systems is that the Silk’n Flash n’ Go is a small hand held unit, with no base unit. The Silk’n SensEpil has a base unit and a hand held, cord connected device.

In our view the Flash and Go is smaller and much more compact, like a ‘science fiction laser hand gun’. The Flash and Go is easier to carry, for travel or for home, with no base unit, it is comfortable to be plugged anywhere.

The Silk’n Flash & Go has a smaller spot size (4.0 squared cm) compared to the Silk’n SensEpil (6.0 squared cm). Smaller spot size mean more pulses are needed to cover the same area. On the other hand smaller spot size mean precise treatment, the Silk’n Flash n’ Go has an IPL window slim enough to treat the upper lip, without pulsing light on the lips!

Silk’n Flash n’ Go Vs. SensEpil IPL Speed

The Silk’n Flash And Go has a faster IPL treatment rate (1 flash per 3.5 sec) than the Silk’n SensEpil (1 flash per 5 sec). Faster flash rate means faster sessions, covering more skin in less time.

Silk’n Flash n’ Go Vs. SensEpil IPL User Safety

The two Silk’n machines are FDA cleared and the IPL technology they are using is FDA approved. Silk’n machines are implementing the highest safety precautions, focusing of the user safety in their devices. Both of the Silk’n hair removal systems have a ‘skin touch sensor’, and a ‘skin tone sensor’, both protecting the unprofessional home user. The ‘skin touch sensor’ will prevent an accidental flash (endangering the eyes) if the IPL window is not touching the skin, and the ‘skin tone sensor’ will prevent a pulse on dark skin.

Silk’n Flash n’ Go Vs. SensEpil IPL Energy

The simple answer is that the basic IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) energy in both systems is quite the same. The Flash n’ Go and the SensEpil use the same kind of energy Silk’n scientists call HPL – Home Pulsed Light – which is a patent bypass twist(?) of the IPL wide spectrum flash. The Silk’n Flash n’ Go and the Silk’n SensEpil both use up to 5 joules per cm2 IPL energy.

Just for comparison, the Me my Elos uses up to 6 joules per cm2, the Tria Laser up to 24 joules per cm2, the DM7000 Laser up to 130  joules per cm2!

Silk’n Flash n’ Go Vs. SensEpil IPL Replacement Cartridge

The Silk’n Flash And Go IPL cartridge has more pulses (1000), compared to the SensEpil cartridge (750 pulses). It is worth to note that the extra 250 pulse capacity are needed because the Flash & Go has a smaller spot size. More pulses are needed to cover the same area which 750 pulses could cover with the SensEpil larger spot size.

Flash & Go Vs. Cost Comparison

The cost comparison is for the system device, the Flash and Go can be bought for a lower price! With the extended cartridge 1000 flashes, Silk’n Flash n’ Go is a better value for your money. The replacement cartridges cost quite the same  ($45-$50) when the SensEpil has only 750 pulses per IPL lamp unit.
