Silk’n Flash&Go Does Work

The Flash&Go Hair Removal Cons
There is no such thing as ‘the perfect machine’ and also the Flash&Go hair removal device has some cons. The first thing is that compared to the TRIA laser, the Flash&Go is not cordless. This means the home treatments need to be done close to a power connection.
The second thing is that compared to other IPL systems, the replacement cartridge hold only 1000 flashes. Though it is 25% more than the SensEpil device (750 flashes) it is still less than the Remington IPL (1500 flashes) or the Me my ELOS (5400 flashes).
The Flash&Go has a small 4 cm² IPL window. Unlike other systems which have 6 cm². This means treating any skin surface would take 30% more time.
