Frequently Asked Questions

This is my first time epilating. How should I go about it?
Braun Silk-épil epilators are perfect for first-time users. The active massage rollers softly stimulate your skin with micropulsations before and after removing the hair, leaving your skin more relaxed. Still, if you are inexperienced, you might feel some discomfort during your first epilating sessions. This will decrease with each session as the skin adjusts to the process. Also, the individual hairs grow back at different speeds depending on their particular growth cycle, so there will be less hair to remove after the first epilation.

Does more hair grow back if I epilate?
No. In fact, dermatological tests have shown that ongoing epilation reduces the amount of hair regrowth.

How do I prepare my skin for epilating?
The best preparation for epilating is a nice, warm shower. It will leave your skin clean and relaxed. Be sure to use gentle, pH-neutral shower gel and keep the water warm, not hot, to avoid drying out your skin.

Is epilation painful?
Silk-épil epilators have been specifically developed to minimize any discomfort and irritation.

How do I charge my epilator?
To charge, push the charging cord into the epilator's charging socket until it clicks. The first time you connect your charging cord, it might require firm pressure. After a few connections, it will be easier to click it in.

I've been ripping out hair versus shaving since they first invented the Epilady and am now on my 4th hair removal appliance. For those that are wondering how or why they die, it's not that they stop functioning altogether but rather one will notice/hear a visible motor/rotating slow down during periods of regular/extended use. In researching what was currently available, I'm upgrading from the Braun Silk Epil Eversoft Model #5316 (yellow and gray case) to the Braun Se 3170 Silk Epil 3 (pink & white case) specifically because it is Braun's latest model with a cord. Unless one removes her (or his) hair over a multiple day period, a 40 minute rechargeable battery isn't going to cut it for the "all hair at once" period and/or for perfectionists.

There is no body area I can't use it on now -- legs, underarms, upper lip, and even extreme bikini (we're talking "Brazilian" girls!). I've long since quit using the massage guard and opt for the fastest/closest pull there is. To be totally fair to newbies, no, I didn't get here overnight. And, no, it will never be totally discomfort free (one IS still pulling out a hair by its root). However, even the 2nd time will be light years easier than the first. One is pulling out fewer hairs and they truly, honestly, I swear, cross my heart . . . grow back finer.

Pointers for the first time user: shave first and allow a noticeable stubble regrowth (2 to 3 days worth). The hair is then both upright and long enough to successfully, easily remove. Use baby powder/talcum powder to keep the area you're working on dry and the Silk Epil will glide across the skin and target only your hair.

I've been waxing my legs since Nad's debuted about 10 years ago, and I have been shaving my underarms for about as long. I've always preferred waxing to shaving due to the fact that I didn't have to do it often, but because I do it myself, was never 1 to try waxing my underarms. I also shave my bikini area, but have recently started waxing. I only recently became familiar with epilators less than 2 weeks ago. I saw 1 in a sharper image store, and so began my research. After viewing several different epilators, reading numerous reviews, and watching reviews, I decided to go with this 1. I have to admit, being used to waxing, it was not easy to start with this. A previous reviewer said to shave/trim the hairs prior to using for the first time, but that takes too much time. I took a shower, dried, and went to town on my legs. After a few minutes, it got easy, and I got bold. Went over both legs (below the knee only), and proceeded to my underarms. This seemed difficult at first, but then realized it hurt less if you started with a smaller area ie work your way in from the outside of the underarm. Excited with the progress I made, I decided to use this on my bikini area as well. This only proved difficult because the hair was about 1/2" long. I am a firm believer that "pretty hurts" so I worked through the pain. I had a few red spots after finishing, but I read that that would be caused by the follicle actually being removed. Some reviewers have mentioned having ingrown hairs after. Similar to waxing, one must apply something to skin after hair removal (whatever your poison) and exfoliate daily. I use the hair removal items which came in the Nad's hair removal kit. Overall, I am please with my experience.Read more ›

I have had this product for a while and am very happy with it. It does hurt much more than shaving, but is cheaper than scheduling a whole waxing appointment. It's great for a touch-up to smaller areas of skin, but is a little too rough for larger swaths of skin. This particular model seems to be holding up well and does a great job of grabbing all but the finest hairs. It takes a few passes, but with some patience, it can leave skin soft and hairless.

I actually do love this product, however my only complaint is that it didn't give proper instructions as to the use of this product. For this HUMOROUS product review, please read on. For the short version: If you get it and don't yet know what pain is, good luck. Otherwise, it's an awesome product that I may get my whole family!

For those of you who do not know what an epilator is, let me enlighten you. It is a legal torturing device that the Government has yet to become aware of or use. If they did, it would become illegal immediately.

This little baby comes with 2 settings. Slow and fast. Your ability to handle pain also depends on these settings. If you've never given birth, had a tattoo, or kicked someone's @$$, do NOT attempt a high setting. Start with low and work your way up. For those of you who have been down the preceding roads, get ready. On high there are "48" tweezers grabbing at every single one of your hairs that it can grab hold of. The spinning apparatus that holds these "demon fingers" rotates at about the same speed as one of those low rider spinning hubcaps when the vehicle comes to a stop at an intersection.

This apparatus can be used on legs, arms, armpits, and the bikini/groin area.


It is suggested that no one be at home for fear of murder during use of this apparatus.


A fifth of whiskey, or any hard liquor that will get you drunk quickly and keep you drunk as long as possible.
